Ratings - 00 Hog Battlecard
Price/power (0/5): Terrible for any price.

Tactical (0/5): Not a whole lot of icons and it's single use.

Bonus (1/1): Can't give this a 0.

Closing remarks: I'm not sure if Battlecards were ever viable, but they certainly aren't viable now. Get a Scroll of Ultranova, a Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer, or anything else that does a decent amount of damage and isn't single use.

At a Glance (0/3):
Throw this magically charged playing card at your opponent, and watch as they explode upon contact, dealing (hehe, pun unintended) a whopping 4.556 icons of pure fire damage! Unfortunately, the card loses its charge of magic and becomes fairly useless afterwards, unless you can throw cards like a certain, card-throwing, teleporting someone. Lol.

In-Depth (0/4):
Fire is a dangerous and difficult element to block in large quantities, but fairly manageable at minuscule amounts, as seen here. And this is supposed to be a bomb, where it should be dealing more damage than your regular constants. Common beginner constants deal 10-11 icons of damage. A bomb that deals LESS than that is never worth your time. THIS, is never worth your time.

Price (0/2):
I never commend single-use weapons for being economic, as each time you use it, you're (quite literally, in this case!) throwing away nps. Save the 10 nps you'd spend on this, and get the 1 np Scroll of Ultranova.

Bonus (1/1):

The exact number of icons dealt would probably be 41/9 icons. I've also noticed that the better grades of cards within a set are increased by 4/9 of an icon. For example, the last card upgrade, the Spectre Battlecard, would deal 45/9 (which equals to exactly 5) icons of damage. Cool huh?

Final Score: 1/10

Not even five full icons? And Single Use? Don't even consider this item. Banish it to your Safety Deposit Box or discard it.

The Battledome 2.0 is handing out powerful Battle Muffins now. Try Darigan Muffin if you want a Single Use item with Fire icons. If you want a bomb that costs a single digit number of Neopoints use Sticky Snowballs.

Price/Power: (0/5)
As with most Battlecards this weapon is restrictively weak despite being the more powerful of the red Battlecards. Considering the popularity of 12 icon multi-use weapons this card is worthless.

Countermeasures: (0/5)
At this price range it is hard to block such a hard hit of fire. But chances are your opponent would be using stronger multi-use weapons which would make up for this.

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades:
Now you can just go for the Flask of Liquid Fire which beats this in every way.

Other Points (3 Penalty)
Considering the number of more powerful multiuse and bombs at this similar price range I see no reason why anyone should be using this.

Final Thoughts
An old item created for a time long before most of us.
