    I love my Dagger

    Post by Imarreteet23 on Tue Apr 24, 2012 12:14 am

    Not Bandits knife, not Priscilla's Dagger, but the good old regular Dagger. It's so much fun to use. The reason I started using it was because, on my only parry build, I was using the BK, but decided it was too OP. So, now I'm using the Dagger, and it's great.

    Oh sure, it sucks (takes three parries with a buff to kill someone) but I love it none the less. Has anyone here ever even seen anyone use the Dagger? I woud be suprised if so. Anyways, just thought I should spread the Dagger love.
    ❤

    I've never really used it. Used it in my off-hand for a while to parry with (just for the sake of dual-wielding daggers! And the parrying dagger isn't very good in PvP) with the Bandit's Knife in my main hand.

    Just curious: do you like the dagger because of its size, or because it's an underdog weapon?

    If it's for the size, then I can't recommend the Painting Guardian Sword enough! Same size as a dagger, minus the crit bonus, but excellent damage output for a dex build, and does bleed damage. It's fast becoming one of my favorite weapons.

    Lol, I already use the Painting Gaurdian Sword as my secondary weapon! It's my second favorite weapon.

    I love the Dagger for two reasons:

    1. It's so underused it's not even funny
    2. It actually has almost identical stats as the BK. The only diference is that the BK has ten more critical multiplier. Other than that, they're the same weapon.

    Also, I did somthing similar to that, Sparkly. I invaded in the forest and parried the host, and then his phantom, back to back. I got so lucky it wasn't even funny. That was probably the moment I fell in love.

    Vageta's using the dagger for his sorcerer challenge. He absolutely shredded the Kings with it. It may not do as much damage as a sword or whatever, but the speed just about makes up for it.

    BK has bleed too. One of its best qualities!

    Ahhh, forgot about bleed. But anyways, I don't think that riposte's contribute to bleed effect, and since all I really do is riposte, I never really have any use for the bleed effect.

    the 2 handed r2 has to be the most dramatic thrust in the game, it looks like something from the climax of a greek tragedy where the woman stabs the man she loves in order to keep him forever etc...

    But the BK doesn't have thrust attack type! silly Does the game takes this into account when calculating damage thru thrust and slash defenses while executing a BS or riposte???

    ahh... thats true, the bk does slash damage making it better suited to light armored targets, the dagger might do better on heavy armored targets, this also might explain why rapiers which have less crit rating can do more damage during bs or riposte...
