Lai Yui's Persuader.

Lai Yui's Persuader is a crafted legendary Daibo that can only be created in Reaper of Souls. After patch 2.06 this item no longer requires a Captured Soul or any other legendary materials to craft.

To create this item, find the Plan: Lai Yui's Persuader, 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 Monk can equip it.

Lai Yui's Persuader properties[edit | edit source]

This Legendary Daibo has no inherent properties other than cold damage, and no legendary affixes, making it nothing special as a legendary item. It can roll with larger numbers than a rare Daibo, but as this is one of the least-popular item types in the game, rare is the Monk who will equip it.

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 Lai Yui's Persuader required 1 Captured Soul and 1 Marquise Ruby, plus the other crafting materials.

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, Captured Soul, is dropped only by Unique (purple) Tongue Lashers. They are fast-moving quadrupeds that attack from a distance with their tongues, using them to latch onto their target and pull themselves into melee range. Uniques of this monster type are not common, but as Lai Yui's Persuader is the least popular of all level 70 crafted weapons, rare is the player with any interest in farming these creatures.
