I like to bring up (even though I'm sure its been brought up before) positives and negatives of Cursed Rings. Its going to be a brief list since I don't usually type winded posts. So here we go:
Positives: Negates Holy. Absorbs Dark. Plus 1 stats on PA, MA and speed. Ways to block fire weakness i.e. Black Costume, Flame Shield, White Robe and Crystal Shield. Effective on melee units that are for DPS. Full heal with Death spell and Demi 1/2 healing since both are dark elemental. Always comes back. Can find ways to prevent other weaknesses though not everything. And finally can make for entertaining matches (see lightninghax firmly grasp it vs dokurider bomb squad).
Negatives: OU. Can be killed with potions and raise 1/2. Any fire attacks will hurt if weakness not covered. Petrified with seal evil, ancient sword or petrify spell from Oracle skillset. Can be stolen with steal accessory. Can be killed with consecration (though it rarely happens anymore). And finally can drag on matches or end quicker than you would desire.
So why am I bringing this up? Well to simply point out that Cursed Ring is too good of an accessory since its basically OU. hey ran rampant in the last tournament and people are still using Cursed Rings. I think it should be revamped somehow (unless people are happy the way cursed rings are of course). It was just something that I thought about for a long time and while I too am guilty of using a cursed ring team I can personally attest to the fact that while its good, it seems now getting old to the point where we've seen strategies using cursed ring before. Hopefully next release (whenever that will be) will have significant changes to Cursed Ring. I'm not saying don't use it ever but think if you really need to use Cursed Ring on your team
