Beginning of the Week Weapon Gems (3/25, 3/26/2013)

Hello, Orbitars! Here are the Weapon Gems from yesterday and today.

Monday, March 25, 2013
Virgo Palm — Value 238
Ranged 1.5, Melee 3.5
Health +2, Confusion +2, Walking speed +2, Side-dash ch. shot +1, Dash cont. fire +1

This Virgo Palm is pretty average in all respects, although there are a few bright spots. Melee 3.5 is good (though not so much on a Palm), and Dash cont. fire is always a great modifier, even if it’s just +1. All of the +2s are pretty decent as well, since Health and Speed boosts are always good. If you’re interested, it costs 15,600 hearts to convert into a weapon, or can be ground up for 149 hearts.


Tuesday, March 26, 2013
Leo Cannon — Value 255
Ranged 3, Melee 3
Shot defense +1, Speed +2, Evasion +2, Effect duration +1

Like yesterday’s Virgo Palm, the Leo Cannon is also very average in all respects, but it’s a “better” average, if that makes any sense. Ranged 3 and Melee 3 are both good, and can work either on this weapon by itself or through fusion. None of the modifiers are all that impressive, but both Speed +2 and Evasion +2 are nice. It costs 21,700 hearts to convert this Leo Cannon into a weapon, and it can be ground up for 185 hearts.

Have an awesome day!

Almost a Week of Weapon Gems!

Hello again, Orbitars!

I have been INCREDIBLY busy this semester, so updating has unfortunately taken a back seat right now. I’m going to try my best to at least update biweekly with Daily Weapon Gems, but as such, I can’t justify spending time writing articles or doing other site improvements given my current time crunch. As such, here are the Daily Weapon Gems of the past week that I’ve missed!

Daily Weapon Gem for August 9, 2012

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

Leo Cannon — Value 231
Ranged 1.5, Melee 2
Weakening +3, Stamina +4, Backward-dash cont. fire +3

This gem’s modifiers are pretty good, as Weakening +3 is one of the better status effects, and Stamina +4 makes it easier on you while you’re running around. The backward-dash cont. fire rounds things out nicely, and works well with Stamina +4. It costs 14100 hearts to convert this Gem into a Weapon, or it can be fused or ground up for 136 hearts. Finally, if you still haven’t unlocked the Leo Cannon and want to know how to do so, check out the Weapon Unlocks page!

Have a great day! While the Weapon Generator is still a few days off (need to finish entering the data values and more rigorously test the coding), a huge table of the fusion grid will be posted soon, with the interactive version coming later. Thanks for you patience!

Daily Weapon Gem for June 14, 2012

Good morning! Here’s today’s Gem.

Leo Cannon — Value 176
Ranged 2.5, Melee 0
Burning +1, Effect duration +2

Effect duration is kind of cool. The gem can be made into a weapon for 4900 hearts, or ground up into 53 hearts.

Have a great day!
