The end-game “jack of all trades, master of none” dagger. While lacking in DPS compared to other choices, this dagger’s versatile nature allows it to excel in situations where range and accuracy matters the most.
Before Exalt Version 220.127.116.11 (Sep 2020), this item dealt 125-205 damage.
Before Exalt Version 18.104.22.168 (Mar 2022), this item had a 7% XP bonus.
For many years, the T14 dagger was an unreleased item not obtainable by players (with one famous exception).
In February 2012, the Wild Shadow developer Willem offered any weapon or armor to the person who could most help with rebalancing Oryx’s Castle, which suffered from being too easy to rush. For a video of a warrior rush, Willem named BMJ the winner. BMJ asked for and was granted a T14 dagger, which remains the only time that an item was ever awarded on production before its release, and in fact, the only “legal” acquisition of an (at the time) unreleased item in production.
That November, an exploit was discovered that could turn an HP potion into any item, and more daggers were spawned into production. All unreleased items were subsequently wiped, including BMJ’s dagger.
In Patch X.16.0 (Aug 2017), the dagger and projectile sprites were changed to black squares to reflect the item’s status as unreleased.
|The Realm Eye says:|
Remarkable that a mortal would know of the Dagger of Dire Hatred. Very well, I shall tell you what I know.
This is a weapon not of any material realm, but forged from souls melded together over millennia. The method is an enigma, but results in this ethereal dagger.
The wretched souls that dwell in this unholy blade claw and grasp at the living. Take heed, for their doomed lives may be your own one day.
