    This "bug" is active 3 years,so probably they will never fix it.And there is bug with tesla group buff (antistunt buff dosen't trigger if you put tesla on some location)

    As trakilaki noted, this is not a bug. Only one tesla works on a spot. There's nothing to fix.

    Other area effects work similarly. For example, only one Fury of the Dragon explosion (area effect skill for a DK) works at time.

    Use another skill. Perhaps machine gun turret or mechanical turret. If you have so much steam that you've already placed all these turrets, consider a different build.

    Novadude is 100% correct. It is the nature of the game mechanics. Understanding the game mechanics is key to playing better. For example, now that you know how the tesla turrets behave, you can optimize your damage output to maintain 1x tesla, 2x MG, 1x Mech, and 1x tactical turret (if this rotation is even still feasible... It's been a long time since I've played my mech.

    Other examples are the armor break/damage from multiple singularities, similar bleeds not stacking, burn effects not stacking, slows from the same type of source.... There are tons of examples of these sorts of effects not stacking. If you test these against another player, you find out that this occurs whenever the effect is applied in the form of a form of a debuff. It is very rare to find stacking debuffs, and as far as I know, all stacking debuffs are enemy attacks and do more damage over time, more armor reduction, or more slowing in small increments based on the total number of hits received, not based on total AoE effects that you are exposed to. When was the last time you took double damage from overlapping poison puddles from a venom based mini boss?

    When they introduced new skills (tesla,frozen sphere,explosive arrow,battle frenzy) they said that it will be "the most powerful skills","end game skills"....(and dwarf still use less powerful skill like MG and mechs?!) well for dwarf tesla was good only back then when tesla could protect from stun.But anyway,even if two teslas could deliver dmg on same spot it is low skill (I personally put 1 tesla on other players when fightning boss),for me it is free 10 points in exp tree.

    What other ppl said before me doesn't actually explain the inconsistency of the behaviur of this skill compared to other Dwarfs skills, most of all when compared with the "jounger borther" Machin Gun Turret.
    The reason why Tesla and Machin Gun turrets bheaves differently is that Tsla Turret by all meanings is considered an AoE instead of a summon.
    It cannot be destroyed nor affected by any CC.
    MG Turrets, instead, even if are acting like AoE, can stack just because are consideres minions attaks.
    Even if I would totally remove the 3 points talent becaue it's just misleading and I would even add a more accurate description in the skill tooltip, I would't change the behavior of the skill beacause it makes the skill actually usable.

    When I made the devs note it was immune to dmg and CC, they officially stated it was intentional because tesla, for its range, must stay on close range to bosses.

    I strongly disagree.
    Tesla it's always my 3rd turret (double mechanical turrets followed by tesla, then come the double MG turrets) because it's easier to be positioned, has a better AoE, cannot be destroyed, deals higher DMG than MGs.

    Try it you won't regret.
    Obviusly it's working better if you cast it on yourself and you actually tank the attaks or on the tank and he lures the mobs inside the Tesla AoE.
