I'm under the impression that Lightning Cerberus' trait (Burst of Power) doesn't activate if he gains the Quadhits trait through an artifact.

My Lightning Cerberus is using the following spellgems:
  • Gem of Molten Wall with Stat +/- increase
  • Gem of Chaos Channeling with %Health cost
  • Gem of Volcano with no property
  • Gem of Flamestrike with no property
  • Gem of Hellcry Punch with no property
  • Gem of Planets with chance of cast on hit

Planets is activating A LOT, but none of the other spells is activating. I deduce that either: 1. the % of cast on hit associated with the gem is over-writing the Burst of Power passive; or 2. Burst of Power can currently only activate one time even when the Lightning Cerberus is attacking several times a turn.

But maybe is it what was intended?
Lightning Cerberus' 20% only activates once, even if you hit multiple times.
The Planets cast is activating a ton, because it has Cast on Hit, which WILL activate on multiple hits.

The Cerberus' 20% is like a bonus activation, separate from the Cast on Hit activation. It's a great property if you can load up on Cast On Hit Gem/Cast When Hit gems. For Chaos - Aftermath, Panic Attack, Sabotage, and Infernal Charge all compliment it. Cerberus doesn't really have the Intelligence to support Planets all that much.

Hope this helps!

Not entirely sure, but it could be that traits that trigger upon attacking only count the moment that you actually press "attack", whereas traits that trigger upon dealing attack damage count each indinidual attack. Not sure though, but it'd expain a lot.

Also, it seems like Ashmouth Cerberus has Cerberus Banelords legendary material. In fact, a lot of materials either use duplicate terms (finger being both Clutchers and Skeletons) or are currently associated with the wrong creature, based on name.
