oh haha I take back what I said about the Annihilation ring, I got one with Schezo and it's bloody hilarious. Whenever it procs, it stacks a random amount of extra hits, usually just 1 but sometimes 2-8 (which can also individually do critical hits or not).
The lack of magic power is a bummer, but luckily I'm in the wonder jungle where my biggest problems so far was getting perma blinded/stopped/poisoned by the bees. The purple ones can summon red ones, and they all have a move which debuffs your attack or make you less likely to score a hit. At one point I had two purple bees, one which kept blinding me, the other then summoned a bunch of red ones. I had to use an emergency exit because I simply could not hit them.
The biggest problem with Schezo so far is that he has too low MP, and all his range magics require twice as much MP as Arle. The only upside is that I got his Magic Snatch move, which can drain MP from enemies. Most of them barely have enough MP to make up the moves power cost, but the purple bees, turtles, and medusas can add 25-38 MP.
I'm completely out of supplies and using that move plus healing magic and circles to keep my power up. The Annihilation Ring dispatches enemies very quickly, luckily. I'll probably have problem when I reach the boss.
Medusas also drop apples, very welcome at this point.
