Priscilla's Dagger is a dagger in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

This sword, one of the rare dragon weapons, came from the tail of Priscilla, the Dragon Crossbreed in the painted world of Ariamis.
Possessing the power of lifehunt, it dances about when wielded, in a fashion reminiscent of the white-robed painting guardians.


Obtained by cutting off Crossbreed Priscilla's tail. This can be tricky, due to the small size of her tail and her insubstantial health. 


Priscilla's Dagger`s damage is unremarkable for a dagger, and has lower critical rates in comparison to other daggers. It makes up for this deficiency by having a very high bleed effect (50%; tied only with the Lifehunt Scythe). Priscilla's Dagger has an advantage over the Lifehunt Scythe in that it does not cause bleed buildup to the wielder; however while the Lifehunt Scythe has the fastest bleed buildup in the game, Priscilla's Dagger has the slowest.

Priscilla's Dagger has a bonus to Occult, making it slightly more useful against specific enemies. It also has a slightly greater reach than the other daggers, but has a standard critical rating, making it less useful for backstabs and ripostes.

Priscilla's Dagger's moveset is unique. While its weak attacks are the basic dagger moveset of simple slashes, its strong attack moveset is a graceful, flowing combo that is difficult to master.

Priscilla's Dagger is uncharacteristically fragile for a dragon weapon, having only 100 durability, the lowest of all dragon weapons.
