On the belt slot I REALLY think that tal rashas can't compare to Harrington Waistguard. It's a beast of an item and the uptime is fenomenal tbh, there are only a very few times you wont have the buff up when it matters and then you can always kite kite kite until you find a chest/body/rock to turn over.
100% damage increase is just to insane to not have.
Had one of these belts in the bank, on first glance I didn't think the bonus seemed that great (thinking it was literally only chests). But from your approval of it I decided to go give it a try, and holy shit. That belt is game-changing. Procs on bodies, armor and weapon racks, loose rocks, things like cocooned victims (which are really just bodies), and of course, chests. In some places these things are everywhere.
I don't think I'll ever use another belt. I pop something, get the buff, and elites just melt in like 3 seconds (T1). Makes it feel almost comical, and that I need to step up the difficulty (and maybe start aiming for a little more Toughness elsewhere). Here's to hoping it doesn't get nerfed (cause it kinda feels like it should be).
As you said it's comical indeed. Assemble big pack, find anything to open, turn into a archon and scream D-E-S-T-R-O-Y BEEPD-E-S-T-R-O-Y at your screen. Have friends on skype for added wtf just happened effect!
I'm sure you mean EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!
It has been pointed out that Tal's chest always rolls one extra stat then Vyrs, so tal's is plainly better. F irebirds helm replaces Tal's helm as probably the prefered endgame item. Good luck getting a good roll. :-D
