Hi, everyone!

I just got my KI:U two days ago, didn'i know about the free spotpass gems until I came across this thread searching info about streetpass gems. I didn't get saturdays and sundays beacuse, as I already said, didn't know about this... and not even mention that I just lost a whole month of free weapons. Anyway, this has been very helpfull and I want to contribute too. I already got todays gem, so here it goes:

Day 32
Samurai Blade
Ranged: ★★
Melee: -
Value: 222
Confusion +1
Stamina +4
Melee combo +2
Melee dash attack +4
Gem to Weapons -12300
Gem to Hearts +119

I read, in "page 2" I think, that this was a good one. You even pulled an april fool's prank with this one. Well, that's it for now. Regards from México. Keep the awesome work, guy.

P.S: If somethings wrong, just let me know to edit it.

Ok, something awesome just happened! In case you already know this, which I think you already know; but here it goes in case someone starts reading from this page onwards:

I just got the Samurai Blade twice!

This is how I think this happened:
Long story short, I was trying to get the other free weapons, so I though: "Maybe if I change my 3DS date...", so I did. Changed to yesterdays date and put it in sleep mode. Two minutes after that, I turned it back to todays date, 'couse I hate when some notification arrives with another date. Left it back in sleep mode and wrote the post about Samurai Blade. As I was finishing it, the blue led blinked... (OMG =D). Reopened my 3DS, and ther it was, the little blue dot of happyness next to pit's face. Ran KI:U, went to check my Gems and yeap, I had 2 Samurai Blades (Yaaaaay!).

Conclusions:
It seems that If you change yor date, when the 3DS make contact with this arms dealer server, it checks your date. If the date is different from the one from the last time you got your weapon, it sends you another one.
I don't know if, in case I would have gotten my second weapon with yesterdays date, I would have gotten yesterdays weapon; remember I changed back my 3DS's date to the actual date before I got the second weapon. Well, I think this is not the case. I think the server just check it has passed a day since you got your last weapon and then it sends you the weapon of the actual day.

So, if my conclusions are right, you can get lots of the weapon of the day. I think I'll investigate a little more on the subject... or maybe you already know all of this, and I'm just excited over somthing the whole world knows, hahaha.

No. Sadly, my battery died and I'm at work and I forgot the AC adapter at home. Two of my co-workers have 3DS, one is on vacations and the other didn't bring it with him. I even wanted to post some pics to proof this, but well... damn battery. I´ll try to re-created as soon as I get home. If any of you can do it to confirm it, that would be great.

I'm gonna post the pic of the double Samurai Blade first, before I try to re-create this.

I'm new here, so, can I post pics? Or do I have to upload it to a server and post the link?

@Sherman Welcome to NintendoLife and this Magnificant Spotpass Weapon Forum! :D
I didnt know about the neat little glitch, but let me handle the tests, alright? I would hate for any of you guys to lose a gem on a one time spook, and not get any gems at a later date because of this...
Also thanks for posting for me, but I perfer it for users to ask first, as I usually am not able to post until 3:00 PM/ 15:00 PST, but Thanks! I understand you didnt know :)
@geneon 101 I might need your help posting, because I'm going to try the glitch, and I dont know if that will affect my ability to get gems... but I will let you know if i can or not. Also I will need you to post for me on Thursday, Day 35. Can you do that?

Roger, @Knuckles. Won't post the weapon of the day again. I will keep trying to duplicate gems though. I have nothing to lose, just have the two Samurai Blades and one from streetpassing my friend. I'll do it in the name of getting this right and to share my findings on the matter and not to urge anyone else to try it. So, as Knuckles said, everyone, wait until it's proven safe =)

Before yesterday I had only seen blue, green, yellow, orange and red, and as I understand it the higher the weapon value and heart cost, the closer its gem color gets to the red end of the color spectrum... which confuses me even more regarding this unusable gray gem displaying name, value, stats and heart cost as "???"

If it's grey, then you haven't unlocked that weapon yet. It also gives you fewer hearts for grinding if you haven't unlocked it.

if they are your pic you have to upload them to a picture hosting site and then paste us the link. but if they are already on net then just paste that link. i suggest photobucket for pics. and tinyurl.com to shorten those long urls down for us :)

@Knuckles and @geneon101 Thanks!
I was so tired when I posted that, I'm still racking my brain on how I managed to use mincemeat coherently , but I digress.
I'll try to do it with every new weapon, but streamline it a bit.
.
So I'll try this one... Shouldn't take long.

Day 32
Samurai Blade

Gem to Hearts +119

I won't put much recommendation into this one. A Samurai Blade is focused towards melee power, and using side dashes to slow and freeze opponents to get close. This is a good thing, as it works as kind of middle ground between clubs and arms. In this case though, you are doing around 116 damage of (correct me if I'm wrong) 300 base health of an opponent with a whole blade combo. This is pretty bad*, but could be worse thanks to the melee combo +2 modifier. The melee dash attack +4 is pretty good, dealing 158 damage, which will also usually put on that confusion status thanks to that modifier. Though the main reason this weapon is so valuable is because of it's stamina +4 modifier, and it's pretty awesome. You can run just around 200... I wanna say meters, but the game doesn't really say a measurement in the practice range. I digress, you can run about 1 and 1/3 times the entire practice range before tiring. This is VERY good for a melee pursuit weapon such as the Samurai Blade, but the melee shortcomings are a bit obvious, making this a bit hard to recommend for online play, sadly. I do however recommend taking it for that sweet stamina boost, and try fusing it with a decent pair of claws that will carry it over onto a club, preferably if the claws have a speed boost.
.
(A bit better)
.
*EDIT: I pulled out my Samurai Blade with a 2 star melee, and a single combo did exactly 116 damage, the same as the spotpass one. The melee dash didn't even do close to the spotpass one, doing only 114 damage, so I guess it isn't as bad as I said it was. If you DO want to use it, try using darkness, or a combo of petrification, and ice status at the same time to be more likely to get one or the or the other to hold the fleeing enemy in place. You could also counter, Aeries/Super, or brief invincibility to go in for the pursue without getting constantly knocked back. I personally fused them with some Bear Claws I had lying around and made a pretty sweet Arum Club, that has the coveted Stamina boost, along with the melee combo boost, so I still recommend making it to fuse it.

It only depends on how far you are in the Game, for instance, you can use the Hewdraw Club once you reach CHAPTER 3 :D

Also, I thought I responded to your cry for help yesterday? Did anyone see that or did I not save my post? Most likely it just didn't save :p

I also want to state again, if you want to post, just ask me ahead of time, perferibly before i post the Day's weapon :P

But seriously if you want to post, ask, and you can do that days or the next, doesn't really matter to me as long as the day's weapon
gets posted!
@geneon101 Thanks for having my back on Thursday!
Also you joined nintendolife for this forum right? If you did then to my knowledge, @sushifreAk, @Sherman and you all joined foe this forum :) [Please correct me if i am wrong]

@iphys Nice to see you post again, just lurking in the shadows i take it?

It's nice to see everyone helping eachother :D

@geneon101 Thats good to know! But you do know this is one of the best Nintendo Gaming Sites on the internet right? I would recommend following the news on the main site to, plus the reviews, they haven't steered me wrong yet! [Trust me I have done that myself]
Also I said Thursday, not Tuesday :D I was giving you a heads up! If you want to post the gem then be my guest, but I was thinking maybe @Sherman should because he didn't know last time :) Care to Post again @Sherman?
