Cataclysm is a crafted legendary mace that can be created in Diablo 3 and Reaper of Souls.

This item can be created and equipped by any class. It has good damage potential for its level, but can not compare to level 60 or 70 gear with -level requirements, which can be 1300 DPS in D3 or 2000 DPS in ROS. Also, two-handed weapons are inherently less useful in D3 and RoS, though some Crusaders find them viable.

Cataclysm is a term that describes a great natural disaster. It's also a reference to the World of WarCraft expansion, also named Cataclysm. It featured a dragon named Deathwing who sundered Azeroth in two, boiling the oceans and generally causing mayhem.
