The Eternal Struggle Build Guide

This new unique item was created by Waggle. It will drop from either The Infinite Hunger or The Black Star. The amulet has a pair of Eldritch mods, and the one that is dominant will be based on which of the bosses dropped it. The dominant mod also controls whether the amulet gives a Malignant Madness or Culling Strike bonus. You’ll need to work out which of the two bosses to farm based on which half of the amulet you want to activate.
