Aquamarine Dagger is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3. It is part of The Ringed City DLC.

A dagger fitted with aquamarine crystal.

Engraved with a prayer in the old tongue to ward off incident. Perhaps it was a parting gift given to one sent off on great travels.

Skill: Crystal Blade
Release magic for the aquamarine crystals, creating a fleeting blue crystal blade, lengthy enough to swing as a straight sword.


Notes and Tips:

  • Infusable: No
  • Buffable: No
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • The dagger seems to be modeled after a 15th century Stiletto. 

 Softcaps & Scaling:

  • 2 Handed Stats:
    • 7/14/18 = 269 AR = Base Stats & Str Softcap
    • 28/14/18 = 278 AR
    • 40/14/18 = 279 AR
    • 7/14/41 = 307 AR = Int Softcap
    • 7/41/18 = 312 AR = Dex Softcap
    • 7/40/40 = 349 AR = Combined Softcap
  • After Softcaps it gets less than 1 AR per level
  • Int/Dex weapon
    • Scales reasonably well with both stats
    • 1.6 AR per level up to 41 Dex
    • 1.7 AR per level up to 41 Int
    • Very poor Strength scaling

      Easily one of, if not the, best daggers. The WA has retarded reach and damage. So easy to combo. Only competitor is the corvian greatknife with it's insane forward reach on it's shield piercing WA.

        The real DEX/INT weapon of the game, with Friede's scythe in 2nd... And Crescent moon sword in 3rd (more dexy than intel)

          Just try not to spam R1, or you’ll get poised and destroyed. Use this with Crescent moon sword and poke them with CSM WA. 2 WA R2 is guaranteed, dealing 450ish damage. It’s the only true combo that AqDgr has.

            Hi there! I have a few questions, what does "WA" mean? I assume "Weapon Art" but I want to confirm. In turn does the activation of the weapon art cost FP or is it attack when its activated cost FP? I really appreciate any help!

              Does anyone know about what the AR increase that the Weapon Art gives to this weapon? I want to use this on my future Sorcerer (17/20/50, the extra point in strength to be able to one-hand the Greatsword of Judgement as well as the Moonlight GS) as a sort of backup weapon but I'd rather know about how much of a damage increase the WA would give me first as without it I only have an AR of 330 with it. If the AR doesn't go to at least 400 with the WA then I probably won't use it.

                  Anyone who thinks this weapon is anything less than one of, if not THE, top tier dagger just hasn't fought with or against this yet. That WA is devastating, the reach and AR is just SO good, it can't be parried either. This has everything going for it that the Corvian greatknife has, about as much reach on the WAs. Literally just don't touch your r1's, just time your WAs right and you'll get SUCH easy wins.

                    Am I the only one who's noticed that when you're using the weapon art you stand a lot like the Heide Knights from DS2?

                        The full moveset for this weapon is fairly impressive, as it effectively has Bloodborne-style transformation attacks with it's weapon art. From my testing; the WA itself can be used straight out of a roll or sprint to get a unique attack, and you can chain the WA to any two-handed R1 or R2 to get a "transformation" and follow up with the WA-R1/R2s freely.

                        It may well have the most extensive moveset of any weapon in the game.

                            The lightsabre thing that happens when you hold the WA button is just far too much fun. Goes well with my Jedi cosplay.

                              How many people fail to see the Zelda TP references in Dark Souls is beyound my understanding. Or maybe because most of the DS3 players still suckled on their mothers tits as this game came out.
