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

Location/Where to Find

  • The Ringed City: From The Dreg Heap bonfire, head forwards and drop down. Head across the bridge and immediately turn left. Head forwards and up the spiral staircase. Head up the next set of stairs towards the Harold Legion and he will drop down. The Aquamarine Dagger is on a pile of rubble behind where he stood: Video Example

      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.

        It was a parting gift for Filianore daughter of Gwyn for her long Journey as the desc. suggests had to be op.

          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.

                        I really love this for PvP.

                        40 dex, 45 int. Pair with a weapon art shield & murky longstaff on the left hand.

                        Spam deep soul & affinity. Use the insanely fast R1s to mash the crap out of people who try to rush you. If they're running away and/or keeping a medium distance from you, use L2R2 to catch up then use the speed and length of L2R1 to catch them down.

                          I run a Dextelligence Build so when I use Crystal Blade and R1 three times it does somewhere above 950 damage and it is a dagger!

                            If you're gonna use this it's probably a good idea to equip a shield with right hand weapon art. The weapon art reverts to one hand usage so I don't think you lose any dmg when special attacking. Been having a blast with it paired to the ethereal oak shield.
