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!
