Rich Rules

by _ggagahc_

Untitled Document BATTLE MAGIC SHOP - Have you ever saw a weapon that was so overpriced that you instantly believed it would perform spectacularly in the Battledome? Guess what? You're probably right. But that is exactly the point! Why are all the good weapons so expensive? The only cheap and buyable weapons are horrible in the Battledome However, there are weapons that will do well in the Battledome yet come at an affordable price. Unfortunately, most of them are species weapons (weapons that only work for a certain type of pet) but if you have that kind of pet, consider yourself lucky. Anyway, today, I'll be talking about and rating these certain weapons. There are four things I'll rate: Availability (if it's available to all pets, then the grade is higher. However, some weapons are species weapons so it's not available to all the pets), Price (the cheaper the weapon is, the better the grade), Attack/Defense (the better the attack/defense, the better the grade), and of course, the overall score!

Large Metal Shield
One of the first suggested lines of defense is the large metal shield. With a cheap price of about 500 NP, how can you possibly not afford this? It's a great substitute for all those expensive defense magic like those scorchstones or the down size power plus. Newbies and experienced battlers can definitely find great use for this weapon equally. It blocks most attacks thrown at you but unfortunately, it won't block all the attacks. It's a price you have to pay when the weapon is very cheap. However, it's a weapon you just can't go wrong with.

Availability: A+
Price: A+
Defense: A-
Overall: A+


Lost Desert Dagger
This is a great weapon! Experienced battlers might not find this weapon so useful but Newbies will definitely find the Lost Desert dagger a lifesaver. Unfortunately, the price isn't too easy to come by. With a price of about 9,000 NP, anyone should be able to afford this weapon. This wonderful weapon will do 6 icons and possibly even defend you a bit! How great is that?! Cheap weapons won't get you that far these days, but this weapon is definitely an exception. I totally suggest this weapon to those who can afford it!

Availability: A+
Price: B
Attack/Defense: A
Overall: A-


Elephante Stunray
Wow! Who would've known a weapon this powerful could be at such a cheap price?!? For the cost of about 13,000 NP, you can do 9 icons of damage and possibly even FREEZE your opponent. Best of all, if you do manage to freeze the enemy, the weapon doesn't leave the battle. You can still use it! Now this is a fantastic weapon! Unfortunately, something this good does have a disadvantage. Elephantes can only use the Elephante stunray and most people don't own Elephantes, so the availability isn't very good. Let's not forget the price isn't exactly cheap. If you really want to use this weapon, though, you're going to have to get an Elephante. However, it's just a small price to pay for a weapon this powerful!

Availability: C
Price: B-
Attack/Defense: A+
Overall: B


Kacheek Pebble Lobber
Now this is a great weapon! With a whopping 7-9 icons, how can you go wrong with this weapon? Although 7 icons may seem like a lot, there are some disadvantages. Kacheeks may only use this weapon but since a lot of people own Kacheeks this day, it seems that the availability has increased. Another thing about this weapon is that it costs a whopping 13,000 NP This definitely isn't a cheap price! However, it all depends on whether you want to spend 13,000 NP on a great weapon or not.

Availability: B- Price: B Attack/Defense: A Overall: B-

Oaken Kacheek Sword
Is this weapon great or what? Six fantastic icons and a defense ability against earth icons for only 5,000 NP!! Unfortunately, it's only for Kacheeks but like I've said before, Kacheeks have become quite popular. Thus, the availability is okay.

Availability: B-
Price: A
Attack/Defense: A-
Overall: A-


Kacheek Ice/Fire Cannon
These are two different weapons but they're more or less the same. They both do 3 icons of air but the Kacheek fire cannon does another 3 icons of fire while the Kacheek ice cannon does another 3 icons of water. Therefore, it's just the elements that make these two weapons different. The price is fantastic, though! For the price of 5,000 NP, you can do 6 icons of damage! If you buy both (for only 10,000 NP), you can do 12 icons of damage!! That is simply superb! The availability isn't too good but Kacheeks are popular pets so it's not that bad...

Availability: B-
Price: A
Attack/Defense: A-
Overall: A-


Immense Rubber Axe of Doom
Now this is a weapon you just can't go without. With a chance of 6 icons (not to mention hard to block icons), you'll be some good damage. Also, it's at a cheap price of about 5,000 NP! Best of all, it's available to all pets so get one as soon as possible!

Availability: A+
Price: A+
Attack/Defense: A
Overall: A+


Well, that's all for now. As you can see, you can go far with some cheap weapons. If you have a Kacheek, you can go really far with some cheap weapons. Now, I hope you've learned something today and I hope you have become better shoppers. Good luck to you, your money, and your battling days!!
