Diablo 3 fans have spoken again, this time in the form of the new Legendary Sword named the Shard of Hate.  Blizzard recently held a “Choose Your Name” vote and more than 20,000 Diablo 3 players took part in designing and naming the Shard of Hate, which will debut in Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls.

The new Legendary Sword is named after Mephisto, the antagonist in Diablo 2.  The Shard of Hate will be a one handed sword that will feature a Charged Bolt, Poison Nova, and Freezing skull to inflict elemental damage on the wielder’s enemies.

Developers have not released the stats for the Shard of Hate, but Diablo 3 game designers John Yang and Travis Day will be putting out a Q & A soon with some more information, including tooltips for the Legendary Sword.
