Volcano Arm 232 – Daily Weapon Gem for March 15, 2013

Happy Friday, Orbitars! Here’s today’s Daily Weapon Gem from Palutena.

Volcano Arm — Value 232
Ranged 2, Melee 2.5
Status resistance +1, Paralysis +1, Side-dash ch. shot +3, Melee combo +2

Once again, this Arm has very fitting modifiers and attributes, but is still most likely best used for fusing something of higher value. Melee 2.5 is decent on an Arm, and is especially nice when combined with Melee combo +2. Side-dash ch. shot +3 is a very good modifier that doesn’t make tons of sense here, and would probably work better on a ranged weapon. Status resistance +1 and Paralysis +1 round the weapon out, and are also pretty decent. It costs 14,200 hearts to convert this Gem into a weapon, and it can also be ground up for 136 hearts.

Have an excellent weekend!


Some Weapon Gems to Start the Week (1/25, 1/27, 1/28/2013)

Good morning, Orbitars! Here are the Gems from last Friday, yesterday, and today. I unfortunately missed Saturday’s Gem, so if anyone has it, feel free to post in the comments!

Skyscraper Club — Value 232
Ranged 1.5, Melee 3
Melee defense +1, Paralysis +1, Walking speed +2, Melee combo +3, Melee dash attack +2

The Skyscraper Club is obviously built as a Melee weapon, with a good Melee 3 combined with Melee defense, Melee combo, and Melee dash attack modifiers. Paralysis and Walking speed are good to have on any weapon, and even though this one’s a bit low in terms of value, it’s still definitely usable. It will cost 14,100 hearts to convert into a weapon, or can be ground up for 136 hearts.

Aquarius Blade — Value 253
Ranged 2.5, Melee 1.5
Freezing +2, Melee dash attack +3, Recovery effect +2, Effect duration +2

This Zodiac Weapon has the rare Freezing modifier, which is a very effective status condition to inflict on your opponents. Melee dash attack +3 is also great on a Blade, where Recovery effect and Effect duration work well on anything. This weapon costs 21,100 hearts to convert, and can be ground up for 182 hearts.

Volcano Arm — Value 100
Ranged 0, Melee 0
No modifiers.

Ah yes, another Value 100 weapon. All this Volcano Arm is good for is trying out how the Volcano Arm handles – you can do MUCH better in terms of weapon fusion to make a better version of the weapon. Like all Value 100 weapons, it can be converted for 200 hearts or ground up for 12.

Have a wonderful start to your week!

Daily Weapon Gem for October 14, 2012

Happy Sunday, Orbitars! Here is today’s Daily Weapon Gem.

Volcano Arm — Value 187
Ranged 0, Melee 0
Shaking +4, Shot range +2, Side-dash cont. fire +2, Melee dash attack +2, Heart bonus +1

This is an example of a weapon putting modifiers over its ranged and Melee attributes, as both Shaking +4 and Shot range +2 are notable on this weapon. If you are interested, this gem can be converted for 6300 hearts, fused with another Gem, or ground up for 66 hearts.

Have a great weekend!
