Golden Scourge is a crafted legendary Flail that can only be created in Reaper of Souls. After patch 2.0.6 this item no longer requires a Hilt of the Silver Wolf or any other legendary materials to craft.

To create this item, find the Plan: Golden Scourge, which can be randomly dropped randomly by any level 70 target, and teach the plan to the Blacksmith. Once learned by the smith, any character on your account can make as many of these as you can afford to create, though only the Crusader can equip it.

Golden Scourge stats[edit | edit source]

This weapon boosts damage with all Holy skills, and has a special legendary property, boosting the number of targets struck by the Smite skill. (All rune effects of Smite deal Holy damage.) This weapon is of obvious use to Crusaders who incorporate Smite into their build, and like all legendary items this Flail roll with bigger numbers than Rare weapons.

Golden Scourge: Legendary Flail

  • +(981-1199)-(1175-1490) Holy Damage

Originally wielded by the crusader Anajinn, the Golden Scourge
has felled numerous enemies of the Light. At one point, Anajinn's
apprentice tried to count them all, and determined that their corpses
would span the distance from Kurast to Westmarch—twice.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Once a player finds the randomly-dropped plan and teaches it to the Blacksmith, the item can be created by any character on that account. This item always has a lvl 70 requirement, no matter what level character crafts it. The Smart Loot system means that this item will usually roll with a mainstat and/or +skill damage bonus appropriate to the class of the character that creates it.

Crafting Costs:

Patch 2.0.6 controversially[1] removed Legendary Materials, which changed the crafting costs for every level 70 RoS recipe. Prior to that patch Golden Scourge required 1 Hilt of the Silver Wolf and 0 Deaths Breath.

Item Examples[edit | edit source]

Legendary Material[edit | edit source]

Legendary Materials were controversially[2] removed in Patch 2.0.6. The following is archived for posterity.


The required legendary material, Hilt of the Silver Wolf, which drops only from Unique (purple) Fallen Hounds. These are found in Act One and Act Two, but not in Unique packs. These are found only in Act Three, and are not commonly-seen as bounties there, making them fairly challenging to farm.
