Ratings - Hawk Wand
Overview: Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself?

The Good: Pass.

The Bad: First of all, hurting yourself in the Battledome is bad. That much should be obvious. But let's delve deeper. The defense, even if occurring 100% of the time, isn't up to par with the super cheap Lair Beast Tooth Shield. And then, if you waste a turn getting a Hawk Feather, you can't even use the feather because it's so weak, it can be beaten by an Attack Fork.

The Ugly Truth: Maybe I could recommend this weapon if it didn't hurt the user, and the damage from hawk feather along with the defense all happened at the same time, but even then it would be rated all the highly. Basically, the Hawk Wand is garbage, and should be avoided in the Battledome.

Price/Power (0/5)
Any item that can HURT YOU is normally worth a miss, the fact it breaks when it happens is even worse. This also is a cheap item generator and generates the Hawk Feather which you can see my thoughts on using over there.

Countermeasures (0/5)
Realistically, there is no reason to counter a weapon which hurts the user. Even the defense is not enough to really make this weapon fierce.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Anything. A Scarab Ring chances self harm into damage and retains the same number of icons of defense. Different icons, but really it doesn't matter.

Other Points (1 Bonus)

Final Thoughts
If that feather was even half decent this could work, oh wait.. no it couldn't
