Formicids, mummies, and ghouls can never go berserk, and thus have no use for this amulet. Bloodless Vampires also cannot go berserk, nor can other species that are Starving. Cheibriados disapproves of going berserk and will impose penance upon followers that do so.

Strategy

For users with a decent Evocations skill, this amulet is a reliable and renewable source of berserking. For non-Trog followers, this is amazingly useful, especially in the early game. Even without Evocations skill, however, it is far from useless; at no skill, you have a 50% chance of activating it. Simply start making activation attempts when the enemy is two or three tiles away, and if you activate early, simply pass a turn or move to meet it. This will reduce the duration of your berserk slightly, but you should still have plenty of time to crush your opponent. See the Berserk article for advice on intelligent berserking.

Be aware that monsters can use amulets of rage against you, if they happened to find one somewhere.
