Parrying Dagger is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Dagger with a greatly curved guard.

A dagger made especially for parrying which is usually equipped in one's left hand in place of a shield.

Skill: Parry
Repel an attack at the right time to follow up with a critical hit. Works while equipped in either hand.

 

Notes and Tips:

  • Reinforcement Material: Titanite
  • Infusable: Yes
  • Buffable: Yes
  • On parry, this weapon has 12 startup frames, 8 active frames and 30 recovery frames at 60 FPS, on 30 FPS divide by 2.
    • This weapon has above average startup and average active frames, which makes it a bad parrying tool overall.
  • All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
    • The Parrying Dagger has a motion value of 360 on backstab, 432 on riposte, and 72+420 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.

 

  • Parrying Dagger has an attack range of 22.7582xl on the 1h R1 and 26.0077xl on the 2h R1
  • As this weapon is not typically used for dealing damage, its recommended to infuse it with a Blessed Gem or Simple Gem to gain passive HP or FP regen. (Upgrading the weapon will cause you to regen more frequently)

      I think instead of a slash attack in the off-hand, this should have had a dual function, to allow a parry with an L1, and a weapon art with an L2.
      This would have made it an excellent and adaptable tool for a lot of fighting styles compared to the other parrying tools, or off-hand parrying weapons, at a cost of extra attack options.

      Perhaps, if someone did one-hand this in their right hand, then making it function like a mail-breaker/rapier in moveset would have been beneficial, and only parrying when used with a weapon-art shield.

        Hello DS3 player, I am come to you for a little favour, and I will carry this message to everywhere in DS3 community.
        There is a glitch that allows you to summon white sign mad phantom in Gael’s Arena (Credit to Dashingsaint), if you keep Shira alived while she invade you (you can escape her simply sprint out her aggro range), you won’t trigger gael boss cutscene, and then you could put down you purple summon white sign or summon other white purple.
        Thus, a new fight club is founded, an arena in a long lost dessert under the sunset sky which sprinkle with fainted galaxy.
        If you’re watching this, kindly please help me share this and invite any ds3 enthusiast you known to this new fight club, your little effort would be much appreciated.
        SL25+2, SL40+4, SL60+6, SL72+8, SL90+10, SL125 Meta, SL 351++, all SL range are acceptable.
        Welcome to the Gael’s Sunset Arena, the most beautiful map in the entire series, the last arena at the End of World.
        I will await you there, in the End of the World, and we shall fight eternal, shiny and incandescence.
        LONG MAY THE DARK SOULS COMMUNITY LIVE

          To this day i'm absolutely baffled why they made it block when left-handed. That is the most retarded thing in this game, hands down.. A buckler has better defensive properties than this thing. So why?! Rapiers can stab. Curved swords can slash. This thing should too. But no, it blocks. Jesus Christ.

          That being said, it makes for an interesting weapon to use with WA-allowing shields.

          • Starting a Daggers only run, and that unfortunately means I'm gonna have to get used to this thing's strange parry style. Wish me luck; I'll need all the help I can get.

              Coming back from demons souls godlike parrying dagger to this is a real bummer. That one has literally instant parries and this one not so much, but it I’ll still use it for fashion sake.

                I saw the annoying crystal lady using this and got demolished. So I decided i'm gonna use it. Then I stop myself and EVERYBODY says it's garbage.

                  I am absolutely offended by how horribly crappy the Parry Dagger is in DS3. I can't even completely comprehend how much it sucks. This thing's just sheer garbage.

                  Allow me to explain: the start up frames are really delayed. It's impossible to parry any quick, fast attack unless you have premonition. As a result, the extended parry frames literally can't be more useless. On top of that, the parry dagger blocks with L1 - see, this wouldn't be an issue if it didn't have 15-18 stability and a maximum of 30/20/15/15/20 damage absorption. Attempting to block anything more than throwing daggers is just cause for being instantly guardbroken.

                  To reiterate, the parry dagger is absolute ****. Better off with barehands, caestus, or shield.

                    PKCS is so much better!
                    Real Pros and skilled players only ever use PKCS, the best weapon gaming history!

                      Unfortunately they completely ****ed the parrying dagger by having its second action be a BLOCK and not an off-hand attack. Seriously, you could both parry AND attack with this dagger in the offhand, why not in this game?

                      Sure, lemme just block with my 30 physical absorption and 20 stability - literally they removed the DAGGER option out of this parry tool. A shame.

                        I think it could be interesting if the parrying dagger was specifically the sword breaker variety of parrying dagger, and able to temporarily disarm the opponent or something along those lines. Sword breakers don't literally break swords, but if they were willing to suspend disbelief with the weapon it could also reduce the attacking weapon's durability by a huge amount and actually make weapon durability a mechanic that makes sense.

                            Evem though it isn't the best left hand partying tool, I still prefer it over things like the buckler because of how much easier it is to tell when the frames are active.

                              I will never understand why the l1 is a block and not an attack. If I wanted a parrying tool that could block, I'd just pick a shield.

                                Great item to infuse. As it weights only 1, and there is only a single caestus (0.5) in the game, as a Sorcerer (no faith leveling), infuse it with Blessed Gem and take it out only when you need to heal up a bit. Sometimes you have only a little heath lost so you don't want to use the Estus, and this item will be exactly what you need. Especially if you wear Lloyd's Sword Ring.

                                  The delay on this thing really breaks it. Caestus, Katanas, and small to medium shields are easy mode compared to this. FROM logic...

                                    Guys I think you are missing a thing. Why do you want to take this thing as a left hand weapon? Because it parries? But you have Shields with a better parry or off-hand weapons that can also parry but alos poke such as caestus, rapier. The parrying dagger has one specifity : this is the only tool with the farron sword able to parry while in the right hand! Go for that, it will surprise your opponent, notably if you have a weapon skill shield.

                                      What bothers me the most about this weapon is not the delayed parry frames, but like in the other dark souls games, the r1 in the left hand is a block. who the hell would block with this? why not give it an attack in the left hand? you're already choosing to forgo a shield by using this... am I the only one that thinks this?

                                            Many people seem to think all but one parrying item is useless, but everyone has one they can parry with without much practice. This dagger has extended parry frames like the shields, but the timing is very different. If the shields seem off in their frames to you, this dagger may be a better choice.

                                                To clear up some of the confusion about the parrying dagger, here is a spreadsheet of parry frame for each item.
                                                As you can see, the parrying dagger is best used when parrying attack early.

                                                    Use the shield Stone Parma which has Weapon Art (WA) is Weapon Skill. Equip the shield to your left hand and the Parrying Dagger to your right hand. At the result, when you perfrom WA, it will be a Parry.
                                                    If you forgot to use WA for the incoming attack, you might be safe because it blocks 100% damage. Hornet Ring is effective.
                                                    This style i recommend for players who are learning how to parry and players who want to fool other players.

                                                      Both have the same number of parry frames but the dagger's frames are early while the shield is late. It means you can wait until the last second with the dagger. A shield is better for scrubs like me that keep parrying too early.

                                                                Is the parrying widow on this similar to the 2h version of the farron greatsword? I started a new character and I got so used to parrying with that weapon that now i can't use anything else, closest thing I've found so far is the caestus.

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

You can't even attack with it in your left-hand. This thing is worthless, only the truly masochistic would dare stick with it despite how far it's fallen.

                                                                          • Anonymous
