Soulsmasher is a legendary two-handed mace in Diablo III. It requires character level 12 to drop, and can only be found in Act V or Act IV Horadric Caches.

Its most notable property is turning a player's Life per Kill to damage. However, it is hardly an efficient solution, especially on higher difficulties, as resulting damage does not increase from a player's primary stat. Contrary to description, it does not possess any kind of "slain enemies rest in pieces" property: the corpses do not explode, just release a purple blast on death.

Death's Bargain is an item with similar mechanic, trading healing for damage.

"This massive mace does more than merely slay its victims. It quite literally shatters their souls, releasing the energy contained within in a massive blast. If it was indeed crafted by my brother Malthael, as I suspect, it may have been a failed first attempt to free human souls for his consumption. How long, I wonder, had his madness gone unnoticed by those closest to him?" —Tyrael, Aspect of Wisdom
