Dragon dagger detail

The dragon dagger is the third 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. 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 ivory statues, a reward from an elite clue scroll or the rare drop table.

Special attackEdit

The dragon dagger has a special attack called Puncture. It uses 25% adrenaline to deal two quick attacks that deal increased damage with an increased accuracy. The off-hand dragon dagger does not have this special attack.

Dropping monsters Edit

  • The Dragon dagger is dropped as a common drop as part of the rare drop table, and 50 noted Dragon daggers are a rare drop from the rare drop table.

  • 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. It returned along other special attacks with the launch of legacy mode on 14th July 2014.
  • Players with poisoned variants of the dragon dagger in their bank had them replaced with notes of the unpoisoned dagger following the Evolution of Combat update. It is one of the few known cases where noted items could be found in the bank.
