This amulet is mostly known for the highest possible Arcane damage bonus in game: (5% higher than any normal amulet). In return, it leaves very little space for variation, often making players sacrifice the Attack Speed affix if they want an additional Core stat or Critical Hit Damage roll.
The unique affix summons arcane stars orbiting the character with each successful attack against nearby enemy, and can hold up to 4 at once. Whenever an enemy comes very close to the Wizard (7.5 yards or less), one of the stars will detonate, centering the blast at the victim. There is a small (about 0.5 seconds) cooldown on how often the spheres may explode. The effect is very similar to Arcane Orb with Arcane Orbit rune, but is classified as a different skill and therefore is not affected by damage increases to Arcane Orb.
