Dagger is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Standard small dagger.

Small daggers lack power or reach, but can deal quick consecutive hits due to their light weight. Highly effective when used for critical hits, such as after parrying or attacking from behind.

Skill: Quickstep
Instantly step behind or around the side of foes. Especially effective when locked on to target.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • The Dagger has the highest critical stat for all weapons.
  • All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
    • The Dagger has a motion value of 390 on backstab, 468 on riposte, and 78+455 on Hornet Ring riposte. The motion value of a backstab  with a dagger does not change with Hornet Ring.
    • This means that aside from a difference in AR, no infusion is strictly better for ripostes, as all infusions will get the same motion value, with the only difference being AR. Use whatever infusion will net the most damage for the best results.
    • Note that Dark damage does not benefit from Hornet Ring in PvP.
    • Motion values vary on a per weapon basis, however the Dagger does have the highest motion value of all weapons for backstabs and ripostes.
  •  The Dagger is the shortest 1h and 2h dagger, with a range of 10.7sp on the 1h R1, and 13sp on a 2h R1.
    • sp, or Shield Pokes, are a unit of measurable distance to determine the range of a weapon. Certain actions create different distances from a wall, allowing one to test the range of certain attacks. While this testing isn't 100% accurate, it is a very good indicator of the ranges of each attack.
  • The Weapon Skill Quickstep can be used to lessen the recovery frames of any attack.
  • When in the offhand, the moveset of the basic attack changes to a stab, which has a guaranteed 2 hit combo.

        30 slashes from a sword/ katana/ scimitar/ axe: this is fine.

            i have a herald/supporter character that has about 50 FTH right now but base INT (8) and around 20 DEX and i play usually offline.
            Should i go for lightining or chaos is always better?
            I will probably infuse one with lightning anyways but i am asking for the one that goes to +10 (since slabs are limited)

              Kinda ridiculous how easy this makes PvE. All the bosses I used to struggle the most with can't even touch me. Friede, Demon Prince, Nameless King, Gundyr, Gael... Plus the high attack rate opens them up for a riposte in mere moments.

              Especially fun to pair with Farron GS in left for some really wild maneuverability options.

                when you get invaded in Dreg Heap and they pull out a dagger and endlessly spam quickstep and you just keep bonking away with your greataxe but no hits land because quickstep kinda broken ngl and when you start to actually win and outsmart them they take out a caestus and start spamming perseverance and theres nothing you can do so you die and they spam ´welcome!´ and you just get sad and remember that no matter how good you think you are at this game theres always that one person thats better than you and is smug about it, moral of the story is that the greataxe sucks and the dagger is a pretty powerful weapon.

                  I got into an undead match with a player using this weapon and they killed me in one backstab. I blocked that player because he was not an expert player, he was an actual hacker. You can't use hacks online because FromSoft will ban you from being online for that stuff.

                      Funny story that happened to me today.

                      1.Start a new character as a sorcerer
                      2.Buy dagger in firelink because it was cheap and i didn't have acces to rapiers and the like yet
                      3.Leave my sign at first bonfire in Lothric
                      4.Summoned by a random deprived, had fun, helped him deal with the Puss-of-Man etc.
                      5.Host gets invaded
                      6.OH****.PNG (knowing the place is a hotspot for twinks)
                      7.Meet invader, points down, spams lightning urns, uses Onyx blade etc.
                      8.Acts all edgy and spamy
                      9.Get a backstab on the dude, corner him with host, spam him to death with his club and my dagger
                      10.Right before dying he pulls the plug

                      Moral of the story: if you cannot beat two starting characters with +0 weapons, don't twink and don't act all mean, you are only making a fool of yourself

                        Can someone explain to me the math behind why the dagger is so powerful for backstabs?
                        As I understand it, the critical modifier of 130 means that the AR is 130% for a backstab, vs. most weapons having 100 in that stat.
                        But if you compare the AR of a sharp dagger at 40 dex to that of a sharp longsword at 40 dex for example, the longsword's AR is so much higher that even multiplying the daggers AR by 1.3 won't come close to it.

                        I always thought "What's the point of a 130 crit modifier when the base damage is so low?" when I read the description... that is until I saw YT videos of people switching to dagger for crits of course. However I still don't understand the math behind it.

                          This weapon is the ultimate killing tool for a devastating riposte.


                          Chaos Dagger +10...

                          With the stats high enough, it will wreck EVERYTHING. Add a Lloyd's swordring, will wreck even more. Add a Fire Clutch Ring, will wreck even more. Add a Red Tearstone instead, will wreck even more. On top of that a morion blade, will wreck even more. Now bowglitch-tumblebuff it with Carthus Flame Arc, will kill gods upon being even mentioned. To the Drakeblood knight at Archdragon Peak, I dealt over 4000 damage with a riposte this way, with all of these enhancers combined. It's crazy

                          But you don't even need any enhancers really, the Chaos Dagger itself will wreck everything and everyone, already an AR of 300-400 is enough to oneshot everyone in PVP mostly.

                          Truly a weapon to end galaxies with.

                                12/10/60 Strength, Dex and Faith and this dagger gets 260 pure physical AR when blessed infused. Makes it pretty good as a side arm for a faith user, and even better when used for ripostes and backstabs.
