The Black Dagger is a non-consumable Hardmode throwing weapon that can autofire. It is sold by the Tracker after completing the "Tracker's End" contract. It rapidly throws shadow daggers that are not affected by gravity. When using right-click, it will instead throw a volley of 3 shadow daggers that arc down after a large distance and stick to hit enemies. Like other Black Weapons, The Black Dagger grants the Darkness Within buff, granting stacking damage for each hit before peaking at 50 stacks. After reaching 50 stacks, it will inflict the Wither debuff on hit enemies.
Like most non-consumable throwing weapons, using this weapon builds up an exhaustion meter that appears below the player. Not using the weapon will make the meter slowly go back down. However, if it becomes completely filled, the user will be inflicted with the Exhaustion debuff, causing all non-consumable throwing weapons to deal massively decreased damage for some time. The meter resets after the debuff ends.
Its best modifier is Unreal.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- It is recommended that you use any Black Weapons along with The Black Cane as the Darkness Within buff that it creates will stack, making it easier to get to 50 stacks.
