The Umbral Dagger is a dagger in Dark Souls II: Crown of the Old Iron King.

In-Game Description

A sharp dagger.
Crafted to facilitate assassinations with a focused backstab. One true strike with this blade, and your work will be done.



As it is mentioned in the description, the Umbral Dagger is a dagger made for backstabs, possibly being the dagger with the highest backstab modifier in the game, and capable of matching the damage of a Mundane infused +10 Shadow Dagger, when unupgraded.

Interestingly, this weapon benefits almost nothing from its upgrade as the damage is raised at a maximum of 17 damage. This means that upgrading this weapon is not worth going through the trouble and that it is an amazing weapon from the moment it is picked up.

Unfortunately this weapon cannot be infused (as it would probably be too powerful) but can be buffed.


  • Upgrading this weapon will have very negligible results in backstabs and riposte's damage output, as such, upgrading is neither recommended or necessary.
  • This dagger has the highest strength requirement out of all the daggers.
