Ratings - Crystal Plateau Dacardian Shield
Price/Power (2/5)
Technically, the price to power of this is a hard one to do- on the one hand it is "free" as it is a reward for Island Builders- on the other hand you do have to put effort to obtain it since it is "no-trade". While technically it being free and semi-powerful it should be a solid 5/5, the added effort in actually obtaining it makes it less appealing if you aren't already playing the game

Countermeasures (3/5)
So- lets imagine you are playing the game and you have earned it. How good is it? Well, It is good. Let's not beat around the bush on that fact, there is nothing to scoff about when it comes to a 75% reflection of any icon- let alone one with a little physical buffer... So why only 3? Well, as there are a lot of other ways to easily and cheaply block dark (such as the Hanso Charisma Charm) you may find yourself up against users more than happy to avoid using dark either by default or once they notice you are wielding this item. Just a little something to keep in mind when choosing this weapon.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
The {{Dark Faerie Collar}} can be freely bought without effort- it reflects less, but does have additional damage to make up some of the difference.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Ugh, I suppose I will have to go do more work on Island Builders if they are giving out no-trade items after all.
