Skycutter is a legendary sword that can be found in Diablo 3 and Reaper of Souls. This item can be found and equipped by any class, though melee weapons are very seldom equipped by Demon Hunters. The holy damage bonus is most useful to Monks and Crusaders, who are the usual wielders of this weapon.

The Smart Drop system ensures that this sword will usually roll with the mainstat appropriate to the class that finds it.

Skycutter properties[edit | edit source]

This item's Holy theme includes bonus to holy skill damage, plus a legendary affix that occasionally causes an Angel to appear and fight by the character's side, for a brief time. The angels are not insubstantial, and can deal sufficient damage to make a real difference, at least against trash mobs.
