Meteor Bow 238 – Daily Weapon Gem for March 31, 2013

Happy Easter, Orbitars! Here is what is likely the final Daily Weapon Gem we’ll receive from Palutena.

Meteor Bow — Value 238
Ranged 3, Melee 1
Knockback defense +3, Burning +2, Standing cont. fire +3, Item attack +1

I’m not going to lie, I’m a little disappointed that this isn’t some kind of Value 350 uber-weapon. Anyway, Ranged 3 works nicely on a mid-200s Bow, and also works well with Standing cont. fire +3, although Standing shot modifiers are pretty weak in general. Knockback defense +3 and Burning +2 are also both very solid modifiers, and Item attack +1 is pretty rare, and decent if you like using many items. It costs 15,500 hearts to convert this Meteor Bow into a weapon, or it can be ground up for 149 hearts.

Also, in a short bit of site news: since Daily Weapon Gems were the primary updates for this site, things are going to slow down around here immensely. While I’ll still pop in from time to time (and maybe do an article or two!), my time on Orbitars is going to be limited until the summer, where I’ll still run an Orbitars League or a few tournaments if there’s enough interest. As always, be sure to check back if you need to find out about unlocks or fusion combinations!


Meteor Bow 233 – Daily Weapon Gem for November 13, 2012

Good morning, Orbitars! Here’s today’s Daily Gem.

Meteor Bow — Value 233
Ranged 2.5, Melee 0.5
Status resistance +2, Poison +1, Shot range +2, Dash ch. shot +2

This Meteor Bow is once again another great example of a decent weapon that isn’t quite there yet in terms of power level. Shot range +2 and Dash ch. shot +2 work extremely well on a decently-ranged Bow, and the other two modifiers work nicely as well. If you are interested in this Meteor Bow, you can convert the Gem into a weapon for 14,400 hearts. If not, you can fuse it with another Gem, or convert it into 138 hearts.

Have a great one!

Daily Weapon Gem for July 17, 2012

Hey Orbitars! Here’s today’s Gem.

Meteor Bow — Value 241
Ranged 3.5, Melee 1
Stamina +2, Dash ch. shot +2, Knockback recovery +1, Heart bonus +1

This weapon isn’t bad at all, and is well-rounded in terms of attributes and modifiers. It can be converted into a weapon for 16,100 hearts, or ground up for 153.

Have a wonderful day!
