Mask of Scarlet Death is a Legendary helm in Diablo III, added in patch 2.6. It requires character level 40 to drop, and can only be used by Necromancers.

The unique affix modifies Revive so that it consumes all corpses (instead of up to 10), and those are instead combined into a single minion (not unlike The Tall Man's Finger). The resulting minion (type still determined by the corpse's origin) deals more damage than multiple Revived would, but will not be as good in blocking enemy pathing. However, the Necromancer can still raise multiple such minions. This item will prefer the strongest monster to become the mega-revive when selecting a group of different creature corpses.

Simple math suggests that, at perfect roll and 10 corpses, this affix boosts the damage of Revive by 60%. Raising a minion from a single corpse will still yield a boost, as the damage increase is calculated as 100% + ([125% to 150%] x number of corpses). Multiple casts will still raise a single minion each.

When paired with the Purgatory rune, the mega-revived monster will drop the same number of corpses that were used to create it on death.
