Storm of Chains

Weapon (spiked chain), legendary (requires attunement)

A storm of chains is a Large +3 spiked chain (a weapon that deals 1d6 piercing damage, weighs 3 lbs., and has the Reach and Finesse properties) that is a weapon favored by many elite chain devil warlords. The chains are infested with thousands of cruel many-barbed hooks carved to resemble biting chain devils. When wielded, these mouths make an unsettling crying noise, like a demented vast alien horde of hungry insane babies, granting you advantage on Intimidate checks against any creature that can hear this grisly moaning. The storm can be hurled up to 30 ft. and becomes a blade barrier. This ability can be used 3 times per day and regains all 3 uses at sawn. You can choose the manner and size of the barrier but like the spell, the barrier is immovable. When the barrier is dismissed or the spell duration ends, the item returns automatically to your hand. Instead of hurling the storm of chains to create a blade barrier, you can instead activate the chain’s power while using the dodge action. As long as you continue using this action each round (up to a maximum of 1 minute), you are surrounded by a miniature blade barrier that protects only you, granting you threequarters cover and dealing damage to any creature or object that strikes him as if it had passed through a blade barrier (DC 19 Dexterity saving throw for half).

An attacking creature or object can take damage in this way only once per round. This effect ends immediately if you take an action other than a dodge action.
