Strategy[edit | edit source]
Captain Tree Trunk's Eyepatch is an interesting trinket, as it serves both as a generic property boosting item as well as having a particularly interesting Special Property, in providing an additional three pierce to anyone equipped with it and Captain Tree Trunks' Cutlass or when equipped to Captain Cassie. With these stipulations in mind, it is easy to connect that this trinket is best suited for four characters in particular: Finn, Captain Cassie, Dungeon Finn, and Warrior Bubblegum.
When paired with a character which satisfies the Special Property's conditions, this trinket can effectively become a superior version of Finn's Crossbow or another close rival to the Trident, as it provides 3 extra pierce to all forms of attack and provides a small range increase to compensate for one lesser pierce that the Trident provides. Still, at only Uncommon rarity, it gives a Super Rare a run for its money in these circumstances. Even better, pairing this with the other closely related pierce trinkets will let characters like Dungeon Finn have a significantly larger pierce cap for both melee and ranged attacks.
Separate from Sword-wielding characters and Captain Cassie, Captain Tree Trunk's Eyepatch can still be serviceable as a range boosting trinket if no better trinkets of that type can be equipped at the time. Four percent increase may not seem like much, but with several trinkets that increase range, every little bit can count to a much bigger and effective goal.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
