Silver Daggers are a regular piece of equipment among knights of the Brotherhood of Light. The daggers are forged to be as perfectly balanced as possible and contain the bone shards of dead saints in the hilt. Due to being wholly made of silver, these throwing daggers are perfect for killing grunt-level lycanthropes and severely weakening stronger lycanthropes. When using Shadow Magic, the daggers gain explosive properties and are called Explosive Daggers.

Damage

Some enemies are weak or strong to Silver Daggers. Lycanthropes tend to be extremely weak to Silver Daggers and Wargs and Gremlins very weak. Most soft-bodied enemies and spirits are moderately weak to Silver Daggers. Hard-bodied or tough skinned enemies tend to be tolerant to them. Most bosses are very tolerant of them.

Some enemies are effected by dagger differently when Shadow Magic is utilized (Explosive Daggers). In the following tables, strength or weakness to Silver Daggers is listed as "Dagger" damage. If this damage is different for Explosive Daggers, that is listed separately.
