Sever is a legendary sword that can be found in Diablo 3 and Reaper of Souls. This item can be found and equipped by any class, though melee weapons are very seldom equipped by Demon Hunters.

The Smart Drop system ensures that this sword will usually roll with the mainstat appropriate to the class that finds it.

Sever properties[edit]

This item's legendary affix makes slain enemies unable to be resurrected, which can be handy against some summoner type enemies. The final hit is more amusing than functional, as it always procs to a crit with massive bonus damage. This looks awesome and will flash a very large yellow (crit) damage number, but it only affects monsters that would have died from a normal damage hit anyway.

The bonus damage is a special sort that doesn't work with other abilities or item properties. Area Damage does not benefit from it, for instance. One of the few ways this can be used to increase damage to other enemies is via the Demon Hunter's Marked for Death: Grim Reaper skill, which takes 15% of damage dealt to the marked enemy and divides it evenly between enemies within 20 yards... though rare is the Demon Hunter who uses a melee weapon.[1]

for dismembering demons.
