Sting ( ( )
Item Type Melee weapon
Artifact? Yes
Weight 10s
Danger Level N/A
Material Iron

The black rune-covered dagger "Sting" is a guaranteed artifact and is the companion dagger to Needle. It has stats of (+8, 3d4) [+4, +1].


On its own, it is quite useless. Used together with Needle, it receives a bonus of 50 to to-hit and damage making it, essentially, a (+58, 3d4+50) weapon without any other factors taken in. Needle receives the same bonus, making the combination of the two truly stunning in performance.

Guaranteed/Common sourcesEdit

The assassin prince carries it, and will drop it upon assassination by the player. This is typically done right after receiving the quest to kill Filk as the prince serves no further purpose once the quest is given.
