|A powerful dagger.|
The dragon dagger (aka DDS, DDP++) 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, which deals two hits at once with an extra 25% accuracy and 15% max hit for each of the two hits, using up 25% of the special attack bar. Players can apply weapon poisons to the dagger.
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.
The damage calculator for both hitsplats in the special attack uses the remaining hitpoints the target has at the start of the animation. For example, if a target has 20 hitpoints, it would hit a maximum of 20-20 even though this exceeds their remaining hitpoints. This is one of the reasons the dragon dagger is a preferred special attack weapon, as while all damage dealt is pre-calculated, the dagger hits twice allowing for more damage on opponents that would normally heal themselves in time to survive.
