Gear Review: Spartan Sword and Shield


       Hey guys, Ulquiorra98 here with a look at the Spartan Sword and Shield, a recently released by ROBLOX. As always, this review will be split into 3 sections: Abilities/Effects, Appearance, and Pricing. So, without further ado, let's get down to the review!

Abilities/Effects:  Well, as far as swords go, this one's pretty decent. Each attack takes approximately 25% of your opponent's health, which means 4 hits to a KO. I'm not quite sure if the shield really helps that much, as I've noticed that I tend to lose as much health as I normally would even when the gear is equipped. The one thing I like about this item is that once you've knocked your enemy down to 25% Health, your next attack will cause whomever it is you're fighting to "fall" into a "deep" pit of doom, from whence there is no return. Why the quotation marks, you might ask? Well, it's because quite often, things get messed up during this part. A) The pit is not so much a pit as a flat, black oval. B) When you kick your enemy into said "pit" they often skid right across it, rendering this "pit of doom" completely useless. However, it is a nice effect and did boost my rating of the item in this category. 8/10.

Appearance: This particular sword and shield set has a very simple look to it. However, I think of this as a good thing, for a simple, yet nice texture is always welcome. The hilt of the blade is coated in 14k gold pixels, as is the shield. The sword fits well in your avatar's hands, as does the shield, with its genuine leather pixel straps to attach to your character's hands. I think it deserves an 8/10.

Pricing: This gear item hit the Catalog at a price of R$1,000, which in my mind is a bit too much for a sword such as itself. A price in the R$500-750 seems more suitable. 8/10.

Overall: 8/10
