The Cosmic Strand is a crafted legendary Source that can only be created in Reaper of Souls.

To create this item, find the Plan: Cosmic Strand, which can be dropped randomly by any level 70 target, and teach the plan to the Blacksmith. Once learned by the smith, any character on your account can make as many of these as you can afford to create, though it can only be used by a Wizard.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Once a player finds the randomly-dropped plan and teaches it to the Blacksmith, the item can be created by any character on that account. This item always has a lvl 70 requirement, no matter what level character crafts it. The Smart Loot system means that this item will usually roll with a mainstat and/or +skill damage bonus appropriate to the class of the character that creates it.

Crafting Costs:

Patch 2.0.6 controversially[1] removed Legendary Materials, which changed the crafting costs for every level 70 RoS recipe. Prior to that patch Cosmic Strand required 1 Glowing Ore and 0 Deaths Breath.

Item Examples[edit | edit source]

Several examples of this item can be seen below. View more samples of Cosmic Strand via DiabloNut's armory.


Legendary Material[edit | edit source]

Legendary Materials were controversially[2] removed in Patch 2.0.6. The following is archived for posterity.


The required legendary material, Glowing Ore drops from Unique (purple) Primordial Scavengers. Those are the large, bipedal, rock-skinned giants that are revealed to be smaller, tunneling creatures when their hard rock armor is blasted away. They are found exclusively in Act Five, chiefly in the BattleGrounds of Eternity and related areas.
