Night's Reaping.

Night's Reaping is a crafted legendary mighty weapon that can only be created in Reaper of Souls. After patch v2.06 this item no longer requires a Captured Nightmare or any other legendary materials to craft.

To create this item, find the Plan: Night's Reaping, 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 Barbarian can equip it.

Night's Reaping properties[edit | edit source]

This One-Handed Legendary Mighty Weapon has nothing special in offensive properties and no legendary affixes, but it has a large bonus to life% as an inherent property, and that affix is not normally found on weapons. This is a considerable boost to toughness, making this weapon more viable for Hardcore characters.

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 Archfiend Arrows required 1 Captured Nightmare and 1 Death's Breath.

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 Nightmare, is dropped only by Unique (purple) Terror Demons and Enslaved Nightmares. These are the Diablo-looking demons found in Act Four, which are invisible until a target nears them, or which summon other Act Four demons through portals on the ground. They are not a common enemy, and this is a difficult legendary material to farm.

Nekerat, the Act four KeyWarden, is of this type of demon, but can not drop the legendary material.
