The dragon dagger is the second strongest dagger available outside of Daemonheim and can be wielded by members who have at least level 60 Attack and have done the Lost Cityquest, which is also needed to wield the dragon longsword. It is surpassed by the Class 5 dagger in Stealing Creation. The dragon dagger used to be extremely popular among players of all combat levels due to its former special attack, though it still remains useful as it is the cheapest of the dragon weapons. The stranger from Desert Treasure uses the dragon dagger because "it sings the song of death."
Previously, the dragon dagger was held with a reverse grip with the blade pointing down.
The dragon dagger used to have a powerful special attack called Puncture that consisted of two highly damaging and accurate hits in a very short period of time. It was commonly used for both PvM and PvP for this reason.
Before the Evolution of Combat, it was possible to poison a dragon dagger. When poisoned weapons were removed, poisoned dragon daggers turned into noted dragon daggers upon logging in.
