I am at work right now, so I cannot try and reproduce it.

I played Grimm's Grotto this morning with a Half-Dragon (a few classes are missing before it is rainbowed).
I saw Whurrgarbl in the shops, so I bought it (I did not prep Avatar's codex though) since I remembered the
discussion with srid, and I wanted to try it.

I was carefully monitoring the burning stacks, since I wanted to see how it worked.

There was a monster with MAX burning stacks.

I attacked it in melee. Burning stacks reset to 1.

by the way, I had no mace, but i am not sure if I had Binlor's knockback or not. I do not remember if I knocked the monster into a block, empty space, or another monster.

This is perfectly normal:

You didn't have a mace nor Binlor knockback, but you did have a Half-Dragon, which has built-in knockback.
When you deal knockback damage, it pops the burning stack.

If you want to try Whurrgarbl, you should try with a Monk or a Gorgon instead (and no Binlor).

By the way, despite what I said, I'm not a huge fan of it and I remember that I bought it one time and was really disappointed, on the other hand, I also bought it on a Codex run once and was quite happy. I don't play regen fighters much either, but they should be the ones able to get most benefits from it, and also maybe spellswords builds like a Dwarf Sorcerer (maybe).

@choongmyoung I saw you said that you put it in your return locker for VGT, which makes sense. Do you use it elsewhere?
We made an expansion and it is awesome. Really, you should check it out, especially if you're looking for some extra challenge.

I'm not a huge fan of Whurrgabl, and I prefer a Venom Dagger (which is also one of the most disliked items) over it. I don't think the item is weak, however. I just veto it most of the time.
