Flail of the Ascended is a Legendary two-handed flail in Diablo III. It requires character level 10 to drop.

The unique affix takes all damage done by the last 5 Shield Bash casts to all enemies into account; if no enemies were hit, no damage will be added to the Shield Glare. Accumulated damage is fully applied to each enemy affected by Shield Glare, not split among them. Each cast of Shield Bash adds a stack, which is consumed when casting Shield Glare.

The damage takes into account Shield Bash damage affix bonuses from gear. Damage stacks will persist through changing gear and picking up items, and are only canceled upon death.

This flail is designed to be used with Roland's Legacy set.

The Ascended turned his gaze from his people, but left behind his flail, that we may remember him. In the fullness of time, he shall return. — the Inquisitor


Originally, this item was supposed to have an affix to empower Phalanx, and was named The Spirit of the Zakarum, with the following description:

“If the purity of the Zakarum runs through your veins, the spirits of the fallen will stiffen your resolve.” — Elder Crusader Drakon
