 Glaive Throw actually has another Effect attached, too, but for now let's just work with the WANDERER_GLAIVE_THROW affix. Glaive Throw actually has another Effect attached, too, but for now let's just work with the WANDERER_GLAIVE_THROW affix.

 You'll see an Effects list to the right. ​ These are the bread and butter of what the Affix is doing. ​ In the second field of the effects, you'll notice the column name is '​Effect'​ indicating what type of Effect it is... this is our next lead in figuring out what EXACTLY these affixes are doing. ​ Percent Speed and Interrupt are very straightforward and the Add Stat seems to be vestigial (it does nothing), so let's look at Damage, since it's the most interesting Effect here. You'll see an Effects list to the right. ​ These are the bread and butter of what the Affix is doing. ​ In the second field of the effects, you'll notice the column name is '​Effect'​ indicating what type of Effect it is... this is our next lead in figuring out what EXACTLY these affixes are doing. ​ Percent Speed and Interrupt are very straightforward and the Add Stat seems to be vestigial (it does nothing), so let's look at Damage, since it's the most interesting Effect here.
