Pick a Name for the 'Design a Legendary' Project

Vote in the poll to help choose the name of the new 1-hand Legendary sword with a Mephisto theme

Design a Legendary
The Design a Legendary community project continues with it's latest poll: deciding the name of the new Legendary one-handed Mephisto-themed sword. Although there wasn't time for a full-fledged community naming contest, there is another poll with 5 names to choose from. Vote now in the Battle.net poll, to help choose the final name for this powerful new Legendary weapon!

The Design a Legendary project is well underway. So far, we've selected the weapon type, weapon theme, and the vote for the item's Legendary power is nearly complete. The concepting phase has also concluded for the item's visual appearance, and we'll be able to share with you 3D models and low-rez screenshots of item in-game early next week!

But there's still one big thing left to decide: the item's name.

When we originally started the Design a Legendary project, our goal was to host an official naming contest near the end of the design process. We even had super fancy legal Terms of Use all drawn up and ready for digital print. 

Unfortunately, even the best laid plans of mice and CMs can go awry and, due to development deadlines, a full contest isn't in the cards at this point -- especially since we want to make sure that this Legendary is available with the release of Reaper of Souls (rather than needing to be patched in later). But have no fear! It's still very important to us that the name of this Mephisto-themed, one-handed sword to be chosen by you, our players, so we've come up with *cue trumpet flare* other plans.

Over the past week, we've scoured forum posts, blog comments, tweets, and more wherein players have suggested some amazing names for this particular Legendary. Of those names, our designers have chosen five which fit the tone and theme of the weapon. Those five player-submitted names are:

  • Spine of the Father
  • Rancor
  • Shard of Hate
  • Malevolence
  • Sankekur's Sorrow

So, pick your favorite by using the voting options below, and be sure to spread the word. As with previous votes, whichever name gets the most votes globally wins!

After the poll has closed, we'll tabulate player votes from all our different Diablo III communities around the world to determine the winner and share the results next week. Don't delay, though—this poll will close Wednesday, January 29.

Although the official announcement above doesn't have the specifics, last week's poll for choosing a weapon power has now closed, and it appears that option 4 won. We'll see more details about the new Legendary weapon next week.
