  • Throwing the shield provides a single-turn stun and automatic critical on your next attack.

AT
  • Regenerate 5-6 MP per Adventure
  • -3 MP to use Skills (in-combat only)
  • Lets You Sing More Proudly
  • Allows you to keep 4 songs in your head instead of 3
  • "Lets You Sing More Proudly" from the AT-branch is a new effect that increases the effectiveness of the skill Sing resulting in extra damage on the subsequent two rounds following, the first round being physical and the second round being hot. Needs some spading as to the exact formula and range.
  • "Makes You a Crack Shot", one of the Disco Bandit-specific enchantments, makes the player more likely to hit with a ranged weapon or a rocket from the bottle-rocket crossbow.
    • Specifically, it appears to give a +100 to-hit bonus.
