Bartuc's Cut-Throat has +Strength stat

Monk talons, Every iteration of it I’ve seen, including the one that dropped in the wild while leveling.

Supposed to be Sta?

This is intentional.

Ethereals’ whole purpose is a throwback to Diablo 2 items. As such, many of the Ethereal items have similar stat distributions, even if they don’t “make sense” with Diablo3’s stat design (for example, having Str+Dex on several items).

Diablo2’s Bartuc’s has the following stat affixes:

+150-200% Enhanced Damage (varies)
Adds 25-50 Damage
30% Faster Hit Recovery
20% Bonus To Attack Rating
5-9% Life Stolen Per Hit (varies)
+20 To Strength
+20 To Dexterity
+2 To Assassin Skill Levels
+1 To Martial Arts Skills (Assassin Only)


I hadn’t even thought to look back, it’s been a long time since I’ve played in D2.
