This weapon will only be rated for Regular 1P/2P use, since it doesn't have any niche or league use.

Price (1/3): Even though this is a terrible item, its price can't really get much lower, and for that I have to at least give him one point.
Power (0/5): this is... bad. 2 attacking split icons and 1 defence icon. No other extras or interesting mechanics, just an underpowered weapon.
Uniqueness (0/2): Lots of weapons from that time and even some nowadays are this bad, so it should come to no surprise how bad this is.

Overall the old art should tell you how bad this was. A pretty old item with a lackluster effect. Because of that its final rating is 0/10. I can't give a rating of 0 however, so it gets a shameful 1 instead.

At a Glance (0/3):
Shoot 1 icon of light and 0.1-1 icons of physical damage at your opponent in little rainbow star bullets! You can also deflect 1 icon of darkness with those star bullets!

In-Depth (0/4):
This is one of the weakest, if not THE weakest, weapons in all of neopia. Seriously, you'd be better off picking ANYTHING else, but I'd rather you start with Sun and Moon Chakram.

Price (0/2):
This is also probably one of the cheapest, if not THE cheapest, retired weapon in all of neopia.

Bonus (1/1):
Just look at the expert craftsmanship on it though! It doesn't even require the use of a trigger to fire! You can't find weapons drawn so expertly detailed these days, not even from Artists' Vacation Days!

Final Score: 1/10

Price/Power (0/5)
Everyone has one of these, so price is normally pretty low despite retiring. Good gallery item for the np, but really not worth it for the power.

Countermeasures (0/5)
Really this is so out of date now it isn't funny, it doesn't even really need to be blocked to be useless. Using physical however makes it eaiser to block anyway, despite not needing to.

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades
Anything really, Electro Sword if you want to use light and physical, Scarab Ring if you want a dual duty.

Other Points (2 Bonus)
Retired, but basically everyone would have owned these at one time. They were the staple newbie pack weapon for the longest time and will hold a place in people's hearts for a long time despite being too weak to use.

Final Thoughts
Such an ugly item, but a classic. At least now it is retired it wont have art updated on it.
