War of the Dead.

War of the Dead is a crafted legendary Mighty Weapon that can only be created in Reaper of Souls. This item requires Eyes of the Dead, one of the legendary materials for each weapon crafted.

To create this item, find the Plan: War of the Dead, 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.

War of the Dead stats[edit | edit source]

This Two-Handed Mighty Weapon has no legendary affixes and only the standard 2H legenary weapon damage as an affix, making it one of the less useful crafted items, given how unpopular two-handed weapons are in Reaper of Souls.

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.

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 War of the Dead required 1 Eyes of the Dead and one Marquise Topaz.

Item Examples[edit | edit source]

Several examples of this item can be seen below. View more samples of War of the Dead via DiabloNut's armory. Only one example was present as of June 2014, showing the extreme unpopularity of two-handed weapons.


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, Eyes of the Dead is dropped by Unique (purple) melee Skeletons. These enemies are seen most often in the Act One catacombs.
