Notes
This dagger boasts 15 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. It even usually outdamages the Dirk of Cronus. Further, this dagger’s damage range is only split by 25, allowing for more consistent DPS that other daggers like the aforementioned Dirk and the Spirit Dagger lack.

The tradeoff here is that this dagger’s shots alternate left and right, much like the shots of the Sword of the Colossus (though to a lesser extent), making it a more difficult dagger to reliably aim and control as it leaves a gap in the shot pattern in the middle of its range. If this quirk can be mastered however, this dagger grants incredible DPS and safety and can be safely used as a main.
