The Rusty Dagger rocks! Why do you think so many mobs use it?! Must be a good reason for its incredible popularity with the NPC community! Smiley: grin

There is an endless amount these weapons lying under the water waiting to get inside your backpack as you fish.

Just a FYI for smiths:

1 Rusty Dagger + 1 Sharpening Stone = 1 Tarnished Dagger.

1 Tarnished Dagger + 1 Flask of Water = 1 Piece of Ore.

I will pass on more recipes if I find any on other Rusty Weapons.

By the way, Tarnished weapons dont sell for more, but they have a smaller delay between attacks.

Rusty daggers are no joke. They are very handy as pet weapons. Many classes, at later levels, get pets that can duel wield and double attack. My shammy's pet when equipped with two rusty daggers can shread a mob to pieces in much shorter time. Very useful when no mage is around to conjur some weapons. Too bad we can't buy them ... i'd carry a supply all the time.

I've been waiting forever for this to be updated. Now I can go farm them for Jabober.
