The dragon dagger (sometimes referred to as DD or DDS/DDP++ in its super-poisoned form) is the second-strongest dagger in RuneScape. It can be wielded by players with at least 60 Attack after completion of the Lost City quest. The dagger is popular due to its cheap price and its potentially devastating special attack.

The dragon dagger can be purchased from Jukat in the Zanaris marketplace for 30,000 coins, or from Rasolo the Wandering Merchant near the Baxtorian Falls for 60,000 coins. Urbi also sells them in her shop in Sophanem, although they will never be in stock unless a player sells some to her first.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

The dragon dagger's special attack, Puncture, deals two hits at once with an extra 25% accuracy and 15% damage for each of the two hits, consuming 25% of the wielder's special attack energy. Puncture rolls against opponent's slash defence roll.

When used against other players, both hits are applied simultaneously. There is a slight delay between the two hits when the special is used on NPCs.

The special attack's highest possible hit under normal combat conditions is 47 damage for each of the two hits, or a total of 94 damage. Although rare, the poisoned dagger's special attack can occasionally stack with the poison damage, resulting in a theoretical damage stack of 100. Against a slayer target with a Black mask or Slayer helm equipped, The maximum becomes 52 per hit, dealing a maximum of 104 damage.

For these reasons, the dragon dagger is a staple 'knock-out' weapon in PvP combat, and a cheap option for a high damage spec weapon in PvM. Dragon claws are often superior, but carry a much higher price.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The stranger that may be encountered during Desert Treasure uses a poisoned dragon dagger, and is capable of using the special attack rapidly. Saradomin wizards and melee-using Ancient Wizards also use a poisoned dragon dagger.
  • If the dragon dagger's special attack deals more damage than required to kill the opponent, it will provide experience for the surplus damage, unlike other weapons.
