D2 Stats shows I get 40% extra IAS from amulet when I wear it.
Is that a bug?


D2Stats show total IAS.
You should manually calculate the IAS on your weapon.

    This is a zone that gave me a lot of annoyance on other characters because of all of the projectile balls flying around at all times that do high damage. Wolf doesn't care much though, because once again Avoid is an excellent defensive layer. Combine Avoid with Harbinger mobility and those balls almost never hit us. Excellent character for Teganze!


Yeaaa, I can't really relate to this. I've been trying to farm Teganze w/this build & it's basically a drawn-out ride on the struggle bus for me, with Harbinger's lackluster dmg being my key issue- even with

, 3 FPA, & 146% cold pierce. This skill scales so poorly that I'm currently doing negligible Harbinger dmg to cold immunes, & like 1/3 of the monsters in Teganze are cold immune.

I'm sure I just need more levels (currently 126) & sigs eaten.

At your level it’s better to Harbinger in -> Twisted Claw -> Harbinger out in Teganze. Later on when you are good geared you can Harbinger all the way.

running with a honorific sacred crystal sword and Teganze isn't that much of a problem, my walking blender of a a1 priestess with full bowa set doesn't hurt when she's teleporting with me too :)
still die sometimes but that's a given (at least for me), still haven't gotten full sigs

by 2k on the Tornado. Yes, I understand that Dex is the better stat to stack over all.

However, I find that early/mid game lvl areas are pretty easy when you blend some dex in with pierce and cold spell dmg for the Tornadoes clear faster.

Funny you say that, because just today I noticed that my clear speed felt notably smoother when I brought my Rogue blender merc into Teganze w/ me. She completely made up for my lack of levels & sigs eaten, but I still have mostly TUs on her so she's quite squish. Gonna put some focus on gearing her better.

That's a legacy item, dropped before the elemental item rework (pre 1.7).
