Sword in 'Design a Legendary' is Named

'Shard of Hate' is chosen for the new 1-hand Legendary sword

Design a Legendary
The ongoing community project Design a Legendary is reaching the end, with the final poll completed. The new one-handed Legendary sword with a Mephisto theme has been named Shard of Hate, and can be seen in the latest update.

Over 20,000 players participated in last week's Choose Your Name vote. And although there were many who championed "Spine of the Father, "Rancor, "Malevolence," and "Sankekur's Sorrow" admirably as the rightful moniker for our Mephisto-themed sword, their rallies were not enough to sway the majority and unseat the early frontrunner of this particular poll.

Our Legendary has at last been christened. Taking an overwhemling 36% of the global vote, meet Shard of Hate.

And, with that, our final community vote has concluded! As always, thank you to everyone who voted, posted, commented, shared, and tweeted. <3

Stay tuned to diablo3.com for those insights, and definitely keep an eye out for this special Legendary hitting test servers soon™!
