Did you just get the ring and automatically went to forums to ask what it does? Maybe you should see more of the story...

Head back down the steps to the goddess statue, save the game before proceeding. Once you enter the sand room, you will see glowing zelkron make sure you have the bells on. Drag them one at a time up the steps and eliminate them as fast as possible and keep your shield up without breaking your hand. You may have to jump more than a few times to avoid being killed also pauseing the game to rest a little from button mashing. Once you have defeated all the glowing zelkron, the ring will be recharged. Return to the goddess statue in the room connected to the other tower. Save the game and head back to your team members. Once you are there, equip the blue necklace and put on the demonic ring. If you do not have the necklace equipped, you will die instantly. This process will allow you to open the door and continue to the goddess behind the door. Hope this helps everyone who is haveing trouble with this part of the game.

It's pretty and all but the story says all that and I figured it myself in a few minutes. They literally tell you what to do and they even hint that the ring can kill the wearer. I fear the OP got it before the event and directly went to the forum to ask. Not sure why, though...

To be fair, IIRC you pick it up in like, the second room of Silent Sands long before you actually hit the Annex and they tell you. But yeah, it is explained and used in time.

Just keep exploring as usual. The relevant mobs are triggered by a cutscene later in the area that's literally impossible to miss.

I imagine that for what the say to you, it just didn´t happen. I was killing those red monsters several times but nothing happened. It must be random or something

Haven't played it for long time, now I'm stuck there with Hugo. Can't remember I had problems here with other characters, but maybe it's just nightmare. Red monsters own me in few hits, and I can't hit them myself otherwise I stand trying to hit them and die, it's just running. Killing it with mines is pointless, 1 dmg is nothing, I can fight one of them for hours like that. Any tips, I have enough...

I had the same problem (on hard difficulty), and after checking my level I found out that I was level 27 when fighting them, while they are level 28 or 29. Still, you'll be doing 1-digit damage. Their attacks while powerful have a rather small hitbox, so you should be able to dodge them easily, just make sure to get enough distance. And have the charged force shield up. Mortifying as it sounds, that part was harder than the actual boss-battle in Rado's Annex (with Hugo at least). Either level up, or prepare for LOTS of kiting and shooting. Their weaker counterparts are vulnerable to fire, try hitting them with the fire skill.

If it's too difficult (or you get bored chipping away at them), you can exploit the fact that they don't have any pathing AI.

Run to the base of the stairs, juke them into attacking diagonally into the sand pit past the stairs, then run up the stairs so they mash up into the wall trying to get you. Then you just edge down slowly to the base until your rightmost Eye shoots past it and catches the monster in the side. Then watch TV while you mash Z until they die.

I am afraid I don't undersrand or just can make it happen. They run after me like crazy so I can't say there is no pathing AI. It's worst location in the game, everything here is so annyoing: bugs, bomb guys, those red monsters.

♥♥♥♥ this I give up, it's broken and I don't have patience to hit and run, it's too fast, too much dmg dealing and too annoying.
