Weekend Weapon Gems (3/23, 3/24/2013)

Happy Sunday, Orbitars! Here are this weekend’s Weapon Gems from Palutena.

Saturday, March 23, 2013
Shock Orbitars — Value 254
Ranged 3, Melee 2.5
Paralysis +3, Forward-dash cont. fire +3, Melee dash attack +1, Recovery effect +1

This is one of the few Daily Weapon Gems that is actually usable as-is! Ranged 3 is decent on Shock Orbitars, and works really well combined with Paralysis +3 and Forward-dash cont. fire +3, both of which are very powerful on a Ranged weapon. Additionally, the high Paralysis chance means that you’ll have lots of time to hit enemies with Forward-dash shots, making your battles easier, too. Melee dash attack +1 is decent (useful in a pinch), and Recovery effect is good, too. If you’re interested in these Shock Orbitars, they will set you back 21,200 hearts. If not, you can always grind them up for 182 hearts.

Compact Arm — Value 214
Ranged 1, Melee 2.5
Overall defense +2, Knockback defense +1, Shot homing +3

Today’s Compact Arm isn’t too bad, either. Value 214 is pretty low for something to actually use in battle (especially in Together Mode), but Overall defense +2 and Shot homing +3 are great to fuse onto other weapons. If you’re interested in using this Compact Arm, it costs 10,600 hearts to convert into a weapon, or can be ground up for 105 hearts.

Remember everyone, there’s only a week of SpotPass Weapon Gems remaining, so be sure to check back to see what the last few are!

Shock Orbitars 184 – Daily Weapon Gem for November 19, 2012

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

Shock Orbitars — Value 184
Ranged 2, Melee 1
Shot homing +2, Backward-dash ch. shot +1

Not a whole lot to say about this one. These Shock Orbitars are a good fusion piece, as Shot homing +2 can work well on many weapons, although this one is a little weak. Ranged 2 and Melee 1 are both below average, and Backward-dash ch. shot +1 will rarely make a huge difference in damage. Therefore, you’ll probably want to fuse this one to move that Shot homing +2 onto something better. If you want to use these Shock Orbitars, you can convert them into a weapon for 6000 hearts; of course, you can always fuse it with another Gem or grind them up for 63 hearts, too.

Have a nice day!

Daily Weapon Gem for July 25, 2012

Hello once again, all! Here’s today’s Gem from Palutena.

Shock Orbitars — Value 242
Ranged 1.5, Melee 1
Running speed +2, Backward-dash ch. shot +3, Power attack +3

This is fairly decent (like most of Palutena’s weapons), and has the very nice Power attack +3 modifier. If you’re interested, you can convert it into a weapon for 16,600 hearts; if not, you could always fuse it or grind it up for 158 hearts.

Have a wonderful day!
