Reaper's Wraps

Reaper's Wraps database.

Reaper's Wraps are crafted legendary bracers that can only be created in Reaper of Souls.

To create these, find the Plan: Reaper's Wrap, which can only drop from Malthael, the end boss of Act Five, and teach the plan to the Blacksmith. Malthael *should* drop this crafting plan the first time a player kills him on Story Mode, when the quest credit is awarded. If a player doesn't get the plan, such as due to skipping past Malthael right into Adventure Mode, it is necessary to replay the Malthael quest, or possibly even all of Act Five, to trigger the Plan drop when the quest is first completed. (Which will award a guaranteed legendary item drop as well.)

Reaper's Wraps properties[edit | edit source]

These bracers have a very valuable legendary property that makes them the most coveted bracers in the game for many classes and builds. The ability to refill the main Resource via health orbs is a game changer for a number of builds, allowing for much higher damage output via heavy resource spending.

These bracers are akin to getting the Demon Hunter's Blood Vengeance passive from an item, and Demon Hunters with Reaper's Wraps can choose to use a different passive skill, or double up for a nearly complete Hatred refill with every health globe they consume.

  • All stats listed in the database scale up to the level of the belt when dropped.
  • See the sample screenshots below to see how this belt will roll at level 70.

"The magic emanating from these bracers is strange and unknown
to us. Prior to their discovery, it was thought impossible to utilize
the powers that grant one health to also regenerate one's might.
Their very existence forces us to reconsider some of our basic
understandings of the nature of magic."

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Once a player obtains the Plan and teaches it to the Blacksmith, the bracers 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 Reaper's Wraps required 1 Reaper's Fear and 1 Death's Breath.

Item Examples[edit | edit source]

Several examples of this item can be seen below. View more samples of Reaper's Wraps via DiabloNut's armory.


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, Reaper's Fear is dropped only by Malthael, the Act Boss of Act Five. As Malthael is also the only source for the plan, some players have gotten lucky and found both the plan and the legendary material in the same drop, their first time killing Malthael in story mode.
