Dragon dagger detail

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 City quest, 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."

The dragon dagger can be purchased in the Zanaris marketplace or from Rasolo the Wandering Merchant near the Baxtorian Falls for 30,000 coins. Urbi also sells them in her shop, although they will never have any in stock unless a player sells some to her first. Dragon daggers may also be purchased at the Grand Exchange in Varrock.

Players with a level 65 Hunter can hunt magpie implings in the Impetuous Impulses minigame and potentially receive one as loot. The dragon dagger is also a drop from the revenant ork found in the Forinthry Dungeon as well as a drop from ivory statues. Dragon Daggers can also be obtained as a reward from an elite clue scroll or the rare drop table.

As of 13 January 2009, the dragon dagger is split on CoinShare.

  • Previously, the dragon dagger was held with a reverse grip with the blade pointing down, like daggers are held in real life.
  • 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.
