Version 0.23: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.
A dainty little knife which was made by Spriggans, or for Spriggans, or possibly from Spriggans. Anyway, it's in some way associated with those fey folk. It carves into the world of dreams, and stabs any unaware enemy as if it were asleep.

Desirability

The Spriggan's Knife is very useful to stabbers, especially those relying on spells such as Confuse or Confusing Touch instead of Ensorcelled Hibernation. It is also very useful for summoners due to the distraction effect of summons granting free tier 1 stabs independent of MR or HD. Unfortunately, it isn't much use to other characters unless you find it very early on, since a dagger is a poor base weapon type.

History

  • Prior to 0.23, the Spriggan's Knife also had Dex+4 and MR+, but did not convert stabs to sleep-tier stabs.
  • Prior to 0.15, the Spriggan's Knife had a +4, +10 enchantment.
  • Prior to 0.14, the provided MR was only +20.
  • This weapon was upgraded from a knife to a dagger with the removal of knives in 0.9.
