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

The Butcher's Sickle properties[edit]

This item has a nice themed legendary affix, with a chance to drag targets to the player upon hit. Of course that means nothing with a melee attack, and most caster/ranged attackers don't want to drag the target in closer. This can be useful for a few builds, such as a Barbarian with Throw Weapon, but it's more of a novelty and isn't one of the more popular legendary weapons.
