Mummies, ghouls, and vampires at less than Full (hunger) cannot use this amulet. It is also useless for Formicids.


For users with a decent Evocations skill, this amulet is a reliable and effectively infinite 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.


Prior to 0.15, this amulet had a tiny chance of extending your berkserk.

Prior to 0.11, this amulet also decreased the odds of you passing out after your berserk state ends.
