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:

  • Its moveset changes in the left hand, it then permits a combo involving downward stabs.
  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • A sharp infused dagger with 99 dex does more damage than a refined one.
  • This weapon has the highest critical modifier of all daggers, and is arguably one of the best weapons for critical attacks in the game. Daggers have a critical modifier much higher than the one listed in the user interface, which may be misleading. As such, this weapon will do more critical damage than a similarly upgraded/infused Rapier, despite the higher base damage and identical critical modifier of the rapier.
  • Because of the broad range of scaling, the Chaos infusion allows extremely high critical damage with this weapon. For general swinging, however, a chaos infused dagger will produce similar output to a sharp dagger, despite having a higher attack rating. This is because of the effect of flat damage reduction on split-damage.

      Having a fire or chaos infused dagger as one of your secondary weapons is a good idea for any build, whether PvP or PvE. PvP for ripostes obviously, but in PvE there are more than a few enemies who are extremely annoying but have huge weakness to fire damage. For those a dagger will do more damage than any other weapon you might be carrying around and also often triggers a flailing animation where you can escape or get a few more hits in. Examples: pus of man in high wall / consumed garden, ceiling blobs in cathedral / catacombs / anor londo, undead dogs in high wall / anor londo / untended graves / irithyll, worm guys in cathedral / irithyll dungeon, hollows all over the place, and on and on. The blobs are a classic example - hitting them with a 400AR physical weapon does like 30 damage per swing, but a fire dagger will hit for 100+ and you can swing it so fast they'll be dead in seconds.

        For those not running dark/chaos builds or running a strength build and wondering what dagger to use, my backstab damage is as follows with a 66 strength/18 dexterity (no hornet ring) on Ghrus and Dark Wraiths:

        Infusion - damage wraith, damage to grhu
        fire +10 - 751, 1202
        dark +10 - 656, 1024
        heavy +10 - 704, 1008 (single or two handed doesn't change damage to enemy despite the AR change)

          It would be nice if From Software stopped their b***s*** on the items stats. If the dagger deals higher critical damages than the rapier, then give it a higher critical modifier, it's that simple. Numbers aren't supposed to pop out of nowhere...

          Also, am-I the only one to think it's pretty retarded to make the base dagger (that you can get after playing 2 minutes) the best dagger of the game for critical attacks ? I mean, the harpe, handmaid's and mail breaker are all pretty much useless because of that. Specialy the harpe that is straight up worse than the dagger and the handmaiden's dagger well, E scalling and no infusion...

          No really, wtf FromSoftware ?

                  here is some testing i did with the dagger and it's various infusions on the drakeblood knight (all the testing was performed with the hornet ring and +10 dagger):

                  60 dex, infusion sharp -
                  AR - 288
                  backstab dmg - 695
                  crit dmg after parry - 900

                  here is another interesting fact that i'll already write here - many people must have noticed that the rapier has the same crit modifier as the dagger (130), so everyone assumes that the crit dmg of the rapier will be higher because the rapier's Ar is higher than the daggers but here is what i've got for 60 dex sharp rapier:

                  AR - 367
                  backstab dmg - 582
                  crit dmg after parry - 777

                  now back to the dagger, as we seen already the the front critical dmg(after performing a parry) is around 1.3 stronger than the back one, so from now on ill write only the backstab critical dmg assuming you can calculate the front one by urselves(and because i kinda suck at parries)

                  60 dex 60 int, crystal infused,
                  AR - 369
                  crit dmg - 906

                  60 dex 60 faith, lightning infused,
                  AR - 370
                  crit dmg - 917

                  60 dex 60 int, crystal infused,
                  AR - 369
                  crit dmg - 906

                  60 dex 40 int 40 faith , chaos infused,
                  AR - 388
                  crit dmg - 955

                  60 dex 40 int 40 faith , dark infused,
                  AR - 388
                  crit dmg - 991 (that must be because of the resistance of the drakeblood knight to dark dmg)

                  stats here doesnt matter , fire infused,
                  AR - 296
                  crit dmg - 665 (almost the same as the sharp infused one, so u can get almost the same crit without wasting extra ~50 points on dex)

                  60 dex 60 faith , sharp infused + lightning blade (Yorshka's chime),
                  AR - 471
                  crit dmg - 754

                  i hoe it was helpful

                    This weapon infused as chaos/dark at 40 str/dex/int/fth, +10, does more riposte damage than any other weapons, including Lorian's UGS with 80 WA fire buff, sharp Lothric UGS with Lightening Blade (Yorshka's Crime), chaos/dark Crow Quills, chaos/dark Harald Curved GS, chaos/dark Lothric Knight Sword, chaos/dark Mail Breaker, BKGS, and Dragonslayer Greataxe, all at maximum upgrade level. Tested on Drakeblood Knight at Archdragon Peak. Considering the low stamina consumption of it doing critical hits (around 30 with Hornet Ring on), it is obvious that dagger is the winner of BEST CRITICAL WEAPON at high level after recent patch.

                    Also goes well at 10 str/dex & 30 int/fth, chaos/dark infusion, if you like quicksteps and low level PVP.

                      Something very strange going on with this dagger. It seems that no matter what, a chaos/fire dagger will always be better for ripostes over dark/deep ripostes? Most people have fire defenses while most have no dark defense. Which is weird, I'll have to do more testing.

                        At high dex, is this now a better crit weapon than mail breaker? At least according to mugen, it seems so... but I could be missing something. Would love some input.

                          -quickstep to dodge everything for free and fish for giant crab crits
                          -gigantic critical that's worth skipping over Simple infusion for Crystal
                          -you want CMW instead of Crystal infusion for the optimal AR? Annoyed that it's useless against high mdef enemies? GOOD NEWS IT'S A DAGGER you can easily afford one for every infusion just for the hell of it

                            I found a way to make this powerful. Sharp infusion. Dark pine buff, 60 dex, Flynn build with 20 weight at most. You should have at least 400 ar and the DPS is insane
