Scythe of the Cycle is a legendary scythe for the Necromancer in Diablo III. It requires character level 61 to drop.

The unique affix consumes the duration of all Bone Armor stacks to multiplicatively empower any secondary Necromancer skill for a single cast (Death Nova, Bone Spear, Skeletal Mage). If less than 4 seconds remain, the cast will still be empowered, but the Bone Armor will wear off.
