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

Price (3/3): for under 100k this is a steal, and it can't really get better than that.
Power (4/5): I wanted to give this a 5/5, however... While it is better than Yooyu Knuckle Duster in the term of icon types, they don't really matter. In 1P you won't care about what kind of icons you use, while in 2P half of the icons are easy to block, and you'd do better with a Flask of Liquid Fire. Nonetheless, it is quite cheap and at the very least a better version of a weapon that was already great to begin with.
Uniqueness (1/2): Fire heavy 14+ iconers aren't that common, with only Flask of Liquid Fire being better (if triggering its effect) before we get into HT leves of price. 13-15 iconers are way less rare than they used to be, however.

Overall it's a must have if you don't have weapons with higher iconage like the anagram swords. In 2P it'd be better to get the aforementioned flask if you know its effect will be triggered, however. Because of that its final rating is 8/10.

Price/Power (5/5)
About the same price as the awesome Yooyu Knuckle Duster but better because of its fire based attack. Though on a price/power scale it is pretty much exactly the same right now, worth picking up from the prize shop while you still can.

Countermeasures (3/5)
Basically this is the same weapon as the Yooyu Knuckle Duster but it adds additional chance to do fire instead of easily blocked physical. This alone adds an extra point in my eyes. Though the reliance on light and physical damage still makes this item not perfect.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
My general go to is the Flask of Liquid Fire- but instead of being a "clear" upgrade it is more of an alternative for 2p. This weapon is much better for 1p, however the random nature of throwing in physical and the more heavy reliance on light makes this item fairly even on in my books. The Flask of Liquid Fire is a LOT cheaper though, so if you are looking for 2P fighting you can't really go wrong with one of those in your set. The clear upgrade here is the Sword of Reif.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
This item is fairly great, but if it goes any higher writing the "alternatives" section will become a lot harder.
