A player performing the dragon dagger's special attack, Puncture.

The dragon dagger (sometimes referred to as DD or DDS/DDP++ in its super-poisoned form) is the second strongest dagger in RuneScape and 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 attackEdit

The dragon dagger's special attack, Puncture, deals two hits at once with an extra 25% accuracy and 15% max hit for each of the two hits, consuming 25% of the wielder's special attack energy.

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 NPC's.

The special attack's highest possible hit under normal combat conditions is 46 damage for each of the two hits, or a total of 92 damage. Although rare, the poisoned dagger's special attack is known to occasionally stack with the poison damage, resulting in a theoretical maximum hit of 98.

For these reasons, the dragon dagger is a staple 'knock-out' weapon in PvP combat.
