A dagger... for parrying.

Acquired From

  • Treasure chest behind a boarded up wall closest to Cell bonfire in Lost Bastille head left from the bonfire and head up the stairs and down the rampart. Go down the ladder to your left and go through the door way and head right. There will be a boarded up door. Break the boards and head through and to you left. You will see a door. Use the Antiquated Key to open it and head straight and through the doorway, climb up the ladder to your left and drop down onto the raised platform. There is a passage way that leads to 3 chests. It resides in one of them.
  • Semi-rare drop from spiders in lower Brightstone Cove Tseldora.

 

Hints and Tips:

  • Upgraded with regular Titanite to +10.
  • Works similar to Rapiers, however the animation visually begins quicker with this weapon (Unknown if this affects timing or if it has more parry frames when compared to Rapiers).
  • Very effective if you can master it; after a successful parry, if you hit RB/R1 before the enemy falls to the ground you will execute the guard break critical instead of the riposte critical, inflicting even more damage.
  • This can be done in PvP although it is rather difficult to pull off, so practice is encouraged.
  • Though this weapon can perform a slash when doing a sprinting attack, it is primarily a thrusting weapon.
  • Lightest weapon of the dagger category.
  • See our Parry page for more details.
  • Can perform a slash after light attack from this weapons in opposit hand: Parrying Dagger, Bandit's knife, Dagger, Broken sword, Mail Breaker.
  • While being the best off-hand to parry with (can parry multiple enemies / quick hits in conjunction if skillful), it is the quickest, and therefore the hardest to use. Easiest off-hand to parry with is the Buckler.

      Best Parry as of Latest Updates (2016)29 Aug 2016 10:57  

      The Parry Dagger has a Parry that, like parries in the 1st and 3rd game, start immediately upon button press; additionally, the active frames rival that of a dueling style weapon (such as the Rapier). Quite effective in PvP, given it's now possible last second use, also deals tremendous riposte damage. A GREAT weapon for the right hand (as it can parry in both).
