Midweek Weapon Gems (1/29, 1/30, 1/31)

Good morning, Orbitars! Here are the Weapon Gems for Tuesday, yesterday, and today!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013
Needle Palm — Value 222
Ranged 3, Melee 2
Melee defense +1, Health +1, Effect duration +2

This Needle Palm is decent for its value, sacrificing powerful modifiers for good Ranged and Melee attributes. As such, this would be a great fusion weapon. It costs 12,300 hearts to convert into a weapon, and can be ground up for 119 hearts.

Knuckle Staff — Value 162
Ranged 0, Melee 2.5
Shot defense +1, Bkwd-dash cont. fire +2

Being a weapon with a value under 200, this Knuckle Staff is generally best used as a fusion piece, or as a learning tool. 2.5 Melee is actually quite good for a weapon of this value, but neither the Shot defense +1 or Bkwd-dash cont. fire +2 modifiers are all that impressive. Luckily, if you want this one, it’s cheap: only 3300 hearts to convert into a weapon. Of course, it can be ground up for 39 hearts, too.

Aurum Orbitars — Value 305
Ranged 5, Melee 4.5
Confusion +1, Walking speed +3, Forward-dash ch. shot +2, Side-dash cont. fire +3

Now we’re talking! These Orbitars have great Ranged and Melee scores, and the modifiers are fairly good too. Both Forward-dash ch. shot +2 and Side-dash cont. fire +3 work very well on orbitars, and Confusion and Walking speed work well on any weapon. These Aurum Orbitars cost a whopping 76,200 hearts to convert into a weapon, but can be ground up for 328 hearts.

Have a wonderful day! I’m hoping to get back to a more regular update schedule within the next few weeks, but until then, check back for more updates!
