Item866
Item Type Melee weapon
Artifact? Yes
Weight 10s
Danger Level Unknown
Material Iron

The jet-black dagger "Silence of the Dead" is a non-guaranteed one-handed artifact weapon. Its to-hit and damage increase as it is used to damage monsters, but drop to their base values over time. It also functions as a returning missile, although its vampiric bonuses do not apply to its ranged abilities. It appears as a dagger when unidentified, making it indistinguishable from normal iron daggers.

Constructs, plants, insects, undead, dwarven chaos knights, chaos knights, molochs, greater molochs, and emperor molochs, apparently do not have blood, and thus will not power up this weapon.

DesirabilityEdit

It is one of the best weapons in the game, even at its base stats. It has no drawbacks, and instead offers a host of useful intrinsics.

Guaranteed/Common sourcesEdit

It can be received as a Assassin crowning gift.

It can also be granted as a precrowning gift or a reward for making use of a potion of uselessness, generated in a surge of power or greater vault, or generated as random loot (albeit very rarely).
