Maximus properties[edit | edit source]

This item has a legendary affix that summons a large fiery demon who wields it's own Maximus against all demonic enemies. The demon is tethered to the wielder of Maximus (player or Follower) by a Fire Chain that damages any monsters that touch it. The demon lasts for about 18 seconds, unless killed sooner, and has a ~12 second cooldown.

The Demon's melee attacks deal 100% weapon damage, and strikes slowly, at 0.625 Attacks Per Second. The Fire Chain deals fire damage, but it is not boosted by +fire damage equipment. The damage from the chain ticks 5 times per second and can deal crit damage like most other pet attacks.[1]
