Were you looking for the Wizard skill rune Calamity?


Calamity is a legendary hand crossbow that can be found in Diablo 3 and Reaper of Souls. This item can only be equipped by the Demon Hunter, and will very rarely drop for any other class. This item can be equipped with a shield or quiver in the off hand slot, or Demon Hunters can dual-wield two hand crossbows.

The Smart Drop system ensures that hand crossbows will usually roll with dexterity, or at least never roll with strength or intelligence.

Calamity properties[edit]

This item is one of the few Demon Hunter weapons with a legendary affix and it's a useful one. It causes the base version of Marked for Death to appear on enemies, causing the target to take 20% additional damage for 30 seconds. This effectively gives the Demon Hunter a 7th skill, boosting damage the target takes from all forms of attack, including those by the Demon Hunter's pets and by other players as well.

Slender and refined, this weapon is the antithesis of a traditional,
rough-hewn and unwieldy crossbow. Obviously the result of loving
craftsmanship by a master armsmaker.
