Friday and Saturday Weapon Gems (3/29, 3/30/2013)

Hello again, Orbitars! Here are the third-to-last and second-to-last Daily Weapon Gems from Palutena.

Friday, March 29, 2013
Wolf Claws — Value 227
Ranged 1.5, Melee 3
Shaking +1, Melee combo +3, Melee dash attack +1, Effect duration +2

These Wolf Claws are great for their value, as the combination of Melee 3, Melee combo +3, and Melee dash attack +1 is pretty much as good as you’re going to get for a weapon in the mid-200s. Shaking +1 and Effect duration +2 are great additions as well, but these Wolf Claws are quite usable on their own by a good Melee player, even despite their low value. They cost 13,100 hearts to convert into a weapon, or can be ground up for 128 hearts.

Black Club — Value 204
Ranged 2.5, Melee 0
Health +1, Shot range +1, Speed +2, Standing ch. shot +2

Today’s Black Club is a pretty interesting weapon. Ranged 2.5 is good on a low-200s weapon, and works well with Shot range +1 and Standing ch. shot +2. It is a shame, however, that Standing ch. shot is the shot modifier here, since the standing charge shot is usually the weakest charge shot. Health and Speed are great anywhere, as always. It costs 8900 hearts to convert this one into a weapon, and it can be ground up for 89 hearts.


As a reminder, tomorrow is the final day for SpotPass Daily Weapon Gem distribution. Therefore, check back tomorrow to see what we get (I’m hoping that it’s something epic, though I doubt it). Have a great weekend, everyone!

Weekend Weapon Gems: Viper Blade 302 and Wolf Claws 192 (11/17, 11/18)

Happy Sunday, Orbitars! Here are the weekend’s Daily Weapon Gems.

11/17:

Viper Blade — Value 302
Ranged 5, Melee 4.5
Poison +3, Standing cont. fire +2, Melee combo +3, Heart bonus +1

This weapon is fairly good, having excellent attributes combined with decent modifiers. Poison +3 and Melee combo +3 work very well for the Viper Blade, and the other two modifiers round out the weapon nicely. If you’re interested in owning this Viper Blade, you can convert the gem into a weapon for 72,800 hearts. If not, you can always fuse it or grind it up for 320 hearts.

11/18:

Wolf Claws — Value 192
Ranged 0,5, Melee 2
Shot defense +1, Knockback defense +2, Confusion +2, Melee dash attack +1

This weapon isn’t quite as nice as the Viper Blade, but it can still get the job done. Shot defense and Knockback defense are good on these Wolf Claws (and any Melee weapon), as is Melee dash attack +1. Confusion is a good addition to any weapon, however this one is probably best for fusion. If you want these Wolf Claws, you can convert the gem into a weapon for 7000 hearts, fuse it, or grind it up for 72 hearts.

Have a great day!
