The Twisted Sword is a Legendary sword in Diablo III, added in patch 2.4.0 (though it was present in game files since patch 2.1). It requires character level 70 to drop.

The unique affix boosts each Energy Twister proportionally to how many Twisters are summoned at any given moment, up to a maximum of 5 at a time (which equals up to 750% extra damage of each).

Li-Ming was always experimenting. She imbued this sword with an unfathomable combination of spells that saved her life on more than one occasion. She was obviously a genius — but I’ll deny ever saying that.” — High Councilor Valthek

When this item was added to the game, it did not have the limit on how many times its effect may stack, leading it to be severely overpowered. The item was nerfed to only allow a maximum of 8 stacks, but due to a bug, this limit did not apply. Even after a fix, it still proved to be overpowered, leading to the eventual limit of 5 stacks as of patch 2.4.2.

Originally, this sword was named Nazim's Greatness. Its description would read as follows:

"I grew up hearing of Nazim's adventures across the land of Kehjistan. He trekked from Ureh to Gea Kul, and his accounts were the most accurate source of information on these regions — until I began writing on them, of course." — Abd al-Hazir
