Rune dagger detail

The Rune dagger is a dagger stronger than an adamant dagger, but weaker than a dragon dagger. Like all rune weapons, it requires 50 attack to wield. Its primary use is for melee combat, although it has other purposes, such as dicing/slicing pineapples, or cutting through webs. It is the second strongest dagger available to free players, after the corrupt dragon dagger, which is a rare drop from Revenants. Like all daggers, this weapon is fast, but weak. Players can make a rune dagger with the Smithing skill at level 85 using 1 rune bar giving the player 75 Smithing experience.

Before the Evolution of Combat update, this item was rarely used due to it having no advantage over the then more powerful scimitar and short sword. It is now statistically identical to the scimitar (except stabbing instead of slashing), and hence capable of the same damage per second as all other rune weapons, but it has the lowest price of any rune weapon. It therefore is an ideal choice for those seeking a rune weapon on a budget.

In addition to Smithing, rune daggers can also be obtained as rewards from Level 3 Treasure trails, and as a drop from various monsters. It can also be looted from Eclectic implings. They are sold by Urbi in Sophanem after the Contact! quest.
