Weapon Gems of the Weekend (3/16, 3/17/2013)

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone! Here are the Weapon Gems for this weekend.

Saturday, March 16, 2013
Capricorn Club — Value 210
Ranged 1.5, Melee 3
Speed +2, Melee dash attack +2, Knockback recovery +1

This Capricorn Club is pretty basic (given that it’s a low value, but it does have a few bright spots going for it. Melee 3 is generally pretty good on Clubs (although the Capricorn Club is better suited for Ranged combat), and Melee dash attack +2 goes very well with this decently-high attribute. Speed +2 and Knockback recovery +1 are also good on any weapon. It costs 10,000 hearts to convert this Capricorn Club Gem into a weapon, and it can also be ground up for 99 hearts.

Needle Palm — Value 251
Ranged 1, Melee 3.5
Shot defense +2, Health +1, Dash ch. shot +3, In-peril autododge +2

This Needle Palm is so close. If only its Melee and Ranged attributes were switched. Melee 3.5 makes little sense on a weapon type that is best at Ranged combat, especially when the weapon has an excellent Dash ch. shot +3 modifier. Shot defense +2 also adds a more Ranged/mid-range focus to the weapon. Health +1 and In-peril autododge work nicely everywhere, though. This Needle Palm is definitely best for fusion, where you can either move the great Melee onto something else or put the great Dash ch. shot onto a Ranged weapon. The Needle Palm can be yours for 19,900 hearts, or you can grind it up for 176 hearts.

Have a great rest of your weekend!


Capricorn Club 100 – Daily Weapon Gem for December 10, 2012

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

Capricorn Club — Value 100
Ranged 0, Melee 0
No modifiers.

Like all Value 100 weapons, this Capricorn Club isn’t good for much other than testing out to see if you like how a weapon handles. Like all Value 100 weapons, it can be converted for use for 200 hearts, or ground up for 12 hearts.

Also, it’s worth noting that if you’re wondering how to unlock the Capricorn Club, you can find out the location of the Capricorn Chamber on our Weapon Unlocks page.

Have a great day!

Capricorn Club 220 (10/19) and Upperdash Arm 236 (10/20) – Daily Weapon Gems

Hey all! Here are the weapon gems for yesterday and today.

Capricorn Club — Value 220
Ranged 1, Melee 2.5
Shot homing +2, Melee combo +2, Effect duration +3

This Club isn’t quite sure what it wants to be, with both Shot homing and Melee combo modifiers (that being said, both are good). Effect duration rounds it out nicely. If you want to try this one out, you can turn it into a weapon for 11,800 hearts. Otherwise, you can fuse it or grind it up for 115 hearts.

Upperdash Arm — Value 236
Ranged 1.5, Melee 3
Overall defense +2, Speed +1, Standing cont. fire +1, Melee combo +2, Melee dash attack +1

Today’s Upperdash Arm is on the right path, as Overall defense, Speed, Melee combo, and Melee dash attack are all great on this kind of weapon. Unfortunately, all of the modifiers are a bit too small to make a major impact. If you are interested, you can make it into a weapon for 15,100 hearts. On the other hand, you can always fuse it or grind it up for 145 hearts.

Have a great weekend!

Daily Weapon Gem for May 16, 2012

Hello, Orbitars!

I’ve been gone the past few days with limited Internet access, so that’s why there haven’t been any updates. I’ll try to make up for it this week with a new article or two. Anyway, here’s today’s Weapon Gem.

Capricorn Club — Value 249
Ranged 2, Melee 3
Freezing +4, Melee dash attack +2, In-peril attack boost +3

It can be converted for 18,900 hearts, or ground up into 172.

Have a great day!
