Balefire Caster.

Balefire Caster 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.

Balefire Caster properties[edit | edit source]

This item does not have a legendary affix, and there's generally a shortage of legendary affixes on Demon Hunter weapons, compared to the orange text variety some of the other classes enjoy. Most of the DH weapons and quivers are just stat sticks with high randomization, and this one is a prime example.
