Best Elden Ring Daggers & where to find them


Reduvia Elden Ring
Reduvia is arguably the best Dagger overall in the game.

Reduvia is the first name that comes to mind in Elden Ring as it is one of the best Arcane weapons in the entire game. With its massive focus on Bleed, it can melt down health bars with ease with the correct builds.

To wield it, you will need 5 Strength, 13 Dex, and 13 Arcane, and this is one of the major components in a bleed build.

To get this weapon in Elden Ring, head over to the entrance of Murkwater Cave and defeat the invader named Bloody Finger Nerijus. Once you have defeated them, you will automatically receive Reduvia as a reward.

Glintstone Kris

Glintstone Kris Elden Ring
Glintstone Kris is one of the best intelligence weapons in the game.

Glintstone Kris is the Intelligence variant of Reduvia in Elden Ring, as you can again simply cut through defensive forces with ease using this weapon. You can get it by progressing through Sorceress Sellen’s questline, and siding with her in the end.

To wield it, you will need 5 Strength, 12 Dexterity, and 16 Intelligence.

Black Knife

Black Knife Elden Ring
Black Knife can be great for boss fights in Elden Ring.

The Black Knife is an extremely rewarding experience in Elden Ring for many solely due to its attractive Unique Skill. Although it is highly telegraphed, so PvP might be a problem for it, many PvE bosses can completely succumb to its devastating damage.

To wield it, you will need 8 Strength, 12 Dex, and 18 Faith, and you can get it by defeating the Black Knight Assassin, located at the entrance of the Sainted Hero’s Grave in Altusd Plateau.

Scorpion’s Stinger

Scorpion's Stinger
You can use this weapon for inflicting deadly Scarlett Rot.

You will not be too far away from the truth if you consider Scarlett Rot to be an overpowered Elden Ring status effect. If you have suffered enough in Caelid, don’t worry as now you can give the enemies their own medicine with Scorpion’s Stinger.

This rot weapon requires you to have 6 Strength and 12 Dexterity to be used and you can find it in a chest located in the Grand Cloister Site of Grace in Lake of Rot.


Cinquedea Elden Ring
Getting this weapon might be a challenge for some due to platforming.

Very few know the existence of this powerful Dagger in Elden Rinf as you will have to travel to the bottom of the Bestial Sanctum by going behind it. After a series of complex platforming, you will reach the Cinquedea, one of the most powerful Daggers in the game.

To wield it, you will need to have 10 Strength and 10 Dex, and its Quickstep Unique Skill is great for melting boss HP bars once you have upgraded it enough.
