Laser Staff 175 – Daily Weapon Gem for November 30, 2012

Happy Friday, Orbitars! Here’s today’s Daily Weapon Gem from Palutena.

Laser Staff — Value 175
Ranged 0.5, Melee 0.5
Stamina +3, Forward-dash ch. shot +3

This Laser Staff is the perfect example of a weapon with great modifiers but poor attribute scores. Neither Ranged 0.5 nor Melee 0.5 are any good, but both Stamina +3 and Forward-dash ch. shot +3 are great, especially together. That being said, this Laser Staff would be a great fusion piece, especially if you were going to make another long range weapon such as a Staff. If you want to try out this Laser Staff, it can be yours for the price of 4800 hearts. If not, you can always fuse this Gem with another Gem, or you can grind it up for 52 hearts.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Twinbellows Cannon 100 – Daily Weapon Gem for November 29, 2012

Hello again, Orbitars! Here’s today’s Daily Weapon Gem.

Twinbellows Cannon — Value 100
Ranged 0, Melee 0
No modifiers.

Like all 100-value weapon, this Twinbellows Cannon isn’t good for much other than deciding whether or not you like how the weapon handles. With no attributes or modifiers, you are better off trying to fuse or purchase a better Twinbellows Cannon in the shop. Like all Value 100 weapons, you can convert this one into a Gem for 200 hearts, or grind it up for 12 hearts.

Also, a huge thanks once again to Michael Garza, who posted the Daily Weapon Gems we’ve missed! If you’re looking for the Weapon Gems of the past few days, be sure to check out the comments of yesterday’s Gem!

Have a great one!

Stealth Claws 264 – Daily Weapon Gem for November 28, 2012

Good morning, Orbitars! Here’s today’s Daily Weapon Gem.

Stealth Claws — Value 264
Ranged 4, Melee 2.5
Freezing +1, Speed +2, Dash cont. fire +1, In-peril attack boost +1

These Stealth Claws are pretty good, with an excellent Ranged 4, an average Melee 2.5, and good Freezing +1 and Speed +2 modifiers. While Dash cont. fire +1 and In-peril attack boost +1 aren’t much, they round out the weapon nicely. If you want these Claws, you can convert them into a weapon for 27,500 hearts. Otherwise, you can always fuse it with another gem, or convert it into 206 hearts.

Have a wonderful day!

Fortune Bow 228 – Daily Weapon Gem for November 27, 2012

Hello once again, Orbitars! I’ve missed quite a few gems (and I’ve realized this), but in the interest of time, I’m going to post today’s Gem, and then go back and post some (though sadly not all) of the past week’s Gems. Without further ado, here’s today’s Daily Weapon Gem from Palutena.

Fortune Bow — Value 228
Ranged 3, Melee 0
Paralysis +1, Power attack +1, Effect duration +3, Knockback recovery +1

I like this Fortune Bow for fusion, as it has an average to above-average Ranged 3 coupled with rather lackluster modifiers. Effect duration +3 is good, but Paralysis +1, Power attack +1, and Knockback recovery +1 aren’t incredibly helpful, as they’re just +1s. Anyway, if you want to use this Fortune Bow, you can convert it into a weapon for 13,500 hearts. Otherwise, you can always fuse it with another Gem, or grind it up for 130 hearts.

Have a wonderful day! I’ll be posting the other Gems either later today, or tomorrow.

Ore Club 227 – Daily Weapon Gem for November 20, 2012

Good morning, Orbitars! Here’s today’s Daily Weapon Gem.

Ore Club — Value 227
Ranged 2, Melee 3
Shaking +2, Running speed +4, Effect duration +1

Continuing the trend of weapons that are better as fusion pieces, this Ore Club is somewhat lackluster on its own. While the average Melee 3 combined with the excellent Running speed +4 are good, Ranged 2 and the other modifiers aren’t so great on their own. Therefore, this Ore Club is probably better for fusion. Even still, if you want to use it, you can pay 13,200 hearts to convert it. If not, you can fuse it with another Gem, or grind it up for 128 hearts.

Have an excellent day! I’m going to be out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday, so updates could possibly be more sporadic over the holidays. Even still, be sure to check back for updates!

Shock Orbitars 184 – Daily Weapon Gem for November 19, 2012

Good morning, Orbitars! Here’s today’s Daily Weapon Gem from Palutena.

Shock Orbitars — Value 184
Ranged 2, Melee 1
Shot homing +2, Backward-dash ch. shot +1

Not a whole lot to say about this one. These Shock Orbitars are a good fusion piece, as Shot homing +2 can work well on many weapons, although this one is a little weak. Ranged 2 and Melee 1 are both below average, and Backward-dash ch. shot +1 will rarely make a huge difference in damage. Therefore, you’ll probably want to fuse this one to move that Shot homing +2 onto something better. If you want to use these Shock Orbitars, you can convert them into a weapon for 6000 hearts; of course, you can always fuse it with another Gem or grind them up for 63 hearts, too.

Have a nice day!

Weekend Weapon Gems: Viper Blade 302 and Wolf Claws 192 (11/17, 11/18)

Happy Sunday, Orbitars! Here are the weekend’s Daily Weapon Gems.

11/17:

Viper Blade — Value 302
Ranged 5, Melee 4.5
Poison +3, Standing cont. fire +2, Melee combo +3, Heart bonus +1

This weapon is fairly good, having excellent attributes combined with decent modifiers. Poison +3 and Melee combo +3 work very well for the Viper Blade, and the other two modifiers round out the weapon nicely. If you’re interested in owning this Viper Blade, you can convert the gem into a weapon for 72,800 hearts. If not, you can always fuse it or grind it up for 320 hearts.

11/18:

Wolf Claws — Value 192
Ranged 0,5, Melee 2
Shot defense +1, Knockback defense +2, Confusion +2, Melee dash attack +1

This weapon isn’t quite as nice as the Viper Blade, but it can still get the job done. Shot defense and Knockback defense are good on these Wolf Claws (and any Melee weapon), as is Melee dash attack +1. Confusion is a good addition to any weapon, however this one is probably best for fusion. If you want these Wolf Claws, you can convert the gem into a weapon for 7000 hearts, fuse it, or grind it up for 72 hearts.

Have a great day!
