Skycutter, as wielded by a Monk

Skycutter is a Legendary sword in Diablo III. It requires character level 50 to drop.

The 'angelic assistance' is an angel (same as those seen around in Act IV) which lives for 10 seconds before dying. Only one angel may be summoned at a time, much in likeliness of the Maximus sword summoning a demonic slave.

In addition to that, a significant Holy skills damage bonus may be very valuable to Monks and Crusaders.
