Friday and Saturday Weapon Gems (3/29, 3/30/2013)

Hello again, Orbitars! Here are the third-to-last and second-to-last Daily Weapon Gems from Palutena.

Friday, March 29, 2013
Wolf Claws — Value 227
Ranged 1.5, Melee 3
Shaking +1, Melee combo +3, Melee dash attack +1, Effect duration +2

These Wolf Claws are great for their value, as the combination of Melee 3, Melee combo +3, and Melee dash attack +1 is pretty much as good as you’re going to get for a weapon in the mid-200s. Shaking +1 and Effect duration +2 are great additions as well, but these Wolf Claws are quite usable on their own by a good Melee player, even despite their low value. They cost 13,100 hearts to convert into a weapon, or can be ground up for 128 hearts.

Black Club — Value 204
Ranged 2.5, Melee 0
Health +1, Shot range +1, Speed +2, Standing ch. shot +2

Today’s Black Club is a pretty interesting weapon. Ranged 2.5 is good on a low-200s weapon, and works well with Shot range +1 and Standing ch. shot +2. It is a shame, however, that Standing ch. shot is the shot modifier here, since the standing charge shot is usually the weakest charge shot. Health and Speed are great anywhere, as always. It costs 8900 hearts to convert this one into a weapon, and it can be ground up for 89 hearts.

As a reminder, tomorrow is the final day for SpotPass Daily Weapon Gem distribution. Therefore, check back tomorrow to see what we get (I’m hoping that it’s something epic, though I doubt it). Have a great weekend, everyone!


Even More Daily Weapon Gems (1/13, 1/14)

Hello, Orbitars!

My incredibly busy schedule continues, but I should be able to at least start posting Weapon Gems late (as I have been over the past few days). Anyway, here are yesterday’s and today’s Gems.


Crystal Bow — Value 210
Ranged 1.5, Melee 0.5
Overall defense +1, Knockback defense +1, Shot homing +1, Side-dash ch. shot +2, Melee combo +1, In-peril attack boost +1

This Crystal Bow is in many ways the exact opposite of what I like in a weapon: very unfocused modifiers with many +1s. None of the +1s on their own will make a huge difference (though modifiers like Shot homing and Overall defense are always good), and even Side-dash ch. shot +2 is lackluster here, as well. This Crystal Bow can be obtained for 10,000 hearts or ground up for 99 hearts.


Black Club — Value 193
Ranged 0.5, Melee 1.5
Melee defense +2, Shot homing +2, Full-health boost +4

This Black Club has a nice mix of effective modifiers, but unfortunately doesn’t have the attributes to be truly powerful. Melee defense +2 is good, but both Shot homing +2 and Full-health boost +4 are great, making this Club a great fusion component. In order to get this Club, you can pay 7200 hearts. If you aren’t interested, you can always grind it up for 73 hearts.

Have a great rest of your day!

Daily Weapon Gem for September 9, 2012

Happy Sunday, all! Here is today’s Daily Weapon Gem.

Black Club — Value 232
Ranged 2, Melee 2
Knockback defense +3, Melee dash attack +2, Effect duration +2, Full-health boost +2

This Black Club is about as middle-of-the-road as you can get, as both its attributes and modifiers are nothing spectacular, but they aren’t totally worthless either. If you want to convert this Gem into a weapon, it will cost 14,200 hearts; otherwise, you can always fuse it or grind it up for 136 hearts.

Have a great day!

Daily Weapon Gem for July 7, 2012

Hey, Orbitars! Today’s gem is:

Black Club— Value 218
Ranged 1, Melee 2.5
Shot homing +2, Stamina +2, Item attack +1, In-peril autododge +2

This Black Club Gem can be converted into a weapon for 11500 hearts, or ground up for 112 hearts. Some moderately helpful modifiers there, considering it’s a club. Have a great day everyone!
