Dagger used by those who lurk in the shadows. Formed by bending a sword into the shape of a dagger.
In Mirrah, the land of knights, there exists an order of shadow knights who carry out assassinations in the cover of darkness.

Those who fled even the order of shadow knights had rejected all forms of honor, and resorted to unseemly mercenary work."

Acquired From

  • Dropped from the Suspicious Shadows enemy who only appear in No-Man's Wharf, in the Flexile Sentry arena, in NG+ and beyond.
  • To farm them, kill them during the boss fight but do not kill the boss. Let the boss kill you or warp back to the bonfire to try again. (They respawn indefinitely if you save/quit)




Scholar of the First Sin:

  • Dropped from any Suspicious Shadow you encounter (No-Man's Wharf, Lost Bastille, and etc.) through the game.
  • To easily farm this dagger (Alongside Malformed Claw and Shadow Set), simply join the Company Of Champions to keep enemies from de-spawning, go to The Upper Earthen Peak bonfire then head downstairs. A Suspicious Shadow jumps down (There's a Desert Sorceress there too). You can equip Watchdragon Parma, Jester's Cap, Covetous Gold Serpent Ring and use Rusted Coin to raise item discovery.

 

 

 

Hints and Tips:

  • As a strength based dagger, this weapon is excellent as a backup weapon for strength based characters, as it weighs very little and can be used to punish backstab fishers. It's also better at backstabbing in general, since the initiating animation for backstabbing is much quicker.
  • A backstab / riposte dedicated dagger due to its high critical modifier and backstab speed, extremely useful on wiping out Lion Clan Warriors, who're extremely vulnerable to backstabbing.

      where to farm daggers as well as full set29 Aug 2016 10:57  

      in SOTFS there is a very easy way to farm the set as well as the weapons. after you ring the bell to summon the ship that holds the sentery there is a row of houses where you drop down with two virgarin soliders stay. in the shadows of this place there are two shadow assassins. on bonfire intensity two i was able to farm (this took me about 30 minutes) the entire armor set as well as the weapons by using the mimic head, coventus ring and prisoner tatters. if you break down the bridge then you can run past the enemies and up to where the assassins are located making it a fast and easy trip.
