The Manticore is a legendary crossbow in Diablo III. It requires character level 60 to drop.

In early versions of the game, it was the only weapon that could potentially roll two sockets, making it the most valuable item for Demon Hunters. In patch 2.0., it was partially reimplemented in form of guaranteed Critical Hit Damage bonus. As of 2.1, this property is removed as well.

As of patch 2.4, it gained a unique affix: Cluster Arrow, with its tremendous Hatred cost, becomes spammable, as well as gains increased damage. It can still roll increased Cluster Arrow damage as random affix (10-15%).
