Notes
This dagger boasts 10 more average damage than the T14 Dagger of Dire Hatred at only roughly 0.3 tiles fewer range than the ST Carved Golem Remains, making it an extremely powerful weapon that can deal high DPS at far range. Further, this dagger’s damage range is only split by 20, allowing for more consistent DPS that other daggers like the UT Dirk of Cronus and the UT Spirit Dagger lack.

The tradeoff here is that this dagger’s shots alternate left and right, much like the shots of the UT Sword of the Colossus, making it a more difficult dagger to reliably aim and control. However, due to the dagger’s wide shot, it can still hit a target directly in front of it at all points in its arc.

Trivia
“Avarice” refers to an extreme greed or excessive desire for wealth.
