Dark dagger detail

The dark dagger is a quest item obtained during Legends' Quest. It is given to the player by the entity Echned Zekin. The dagger can then either be given to Ugandulu for a one-use Holy force spell, or used to kill Viyeldi which converts the dagger into a glowing dagger. It is then given to Echned, who turns out to be the demon.

Players can use the drop trick to obtain multiple copies of the dagger during the quest, should the player want one for personal use. Simply drop the dagger and speak to the ghost again. It has no use after the quest is finished.

If you have misplaced your dark dagger after completing the quest, it cannot be re-obtained.
