Faithful Memory is a legendary two-handed sword in Diablo III. It requires character level 16 to drop.

Prior to patch 2.4.3, it was is the only two-handed weapon in game to roll Thorns. The only other weapons are Neanderthal and Nailbiter.

As of 2.4.3, it gained a unique affix: hitting enemies with Falling Sword grants additional damage to Blessed Hammer for 10 seconds. Notably, the bonus stacks for up to 10 enemies (for a bonus of up to 800%) hit with a single cast of Falling Sword, but bonuses from multiple casts do not stack: the second use erases the previous bonus and resets the clock. The damage buff affects both the hammers themselves and their rune secondary effects.

  • The sword is a reference to Ben Boos, an artist who worked on Diablo III, and who passed away. To honor his memory, the game's development team re-modeled the sword in the style of Boos's weapons and wrote flavor text to match.[1]
