got one yesterday for my Brother (Ikky Necro). had to kill Dvinn thrice (first kill a heart, second one no loot, third one had the Dirk), took maybe 2 hours all together.
Still a noob. :-P

If you are willing to take the time to get the right buffs, a level 5 player can take this dirk off of Dvinn in Crushbone - and its a lot of fun doing it!

Then after you kill him several times you can roast his black heart on his own dirk over one of the Crushbone camp fires.

Well, with that "strategy" a level ONE could kill Dvinn. This is what is called Powerlevelling, and while it may be fun, it takes no skill, no strategy.

Basically, you're getting buffed up to 4 times your normal HP, and then just being a spiked pinata. Guess what. ANYONE, regardless of class, or skill, can do that.
This is Funny!

And to think, this used to be one of THE weapons to have. I remember everybody used to ooh and ahh whenever someone shouted that he got it to drop from one of the darkies. I also remember when you could get a ton of cash for one of them at the tunnel in EC. You'd be very lucky to get 10PP for it now. It makes you wonder how people ever played this game before expansions were invented.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

I would not recommend camping Dorn for the dagger. I have killed him about 30 times and never had it drop. I could be unlucky, but I would recommend camping someone else like Dragoon Zytl (tricky spawn though) if you want to pick one of these up.
RE: Dorn B'Dynn
# Feb 01 2003 at 10:33 AM Rating: Default
Dorn doesn't drop the dagger, Dragoon Zytl does. Dorn is supposedly his trigger spawn.
RE: Dorn B'Dynn
# Apr 17 2004 at 10:54 AM Rating: Decent
Dorn has dropped it at least twice, for me. And I know who Dorn is.
RE: Dorn B'Dynn
# Sep 22 2003 at 10:26 AM Rating: Decent
Dorn dropped the Dragoon Dirk for me! Killed him about 3 times one day and he dropped it once.
RE: Dorn B'Dynn
# Apr 20 2003 at 11:50 AM Rating: Decent
Dorn does indeed drop this. I was part of a really good party awhile back (Jan.?) and we camped him and his pals. We took Dorn down 7 times. On 4 of those this dropped. Not bad for a party of 6 whose levels were 8 - 10!!
1 Pally.
1 SK.
2 Clerics.
2 Rangers.

Actually, you are wrong. Dorn is NOT a trigger for Dragoon Zytl. Dragoon Zytl is in no way connected with Dorn B'Dynn.

Having spawned Dragoon Zytl dozens of times I am 100% sure that the trigger spawn for Dragoon Zytl is Kizdean Gix. I have a write up on it under Zytl if you want to see it.

Dirk Range-equipable again

As reported here, the Dirk recently lost its Range slot ability. It has now reverted back to being Range-equipable.
Range wpns
# Oct 04 2002 at 1:53 PM Rating: Decent
I also noticed thsi wpn and several ohers that used to be range slot equippable are not range slot anymore. Since the last major patch. IS this something that is gonna be permanent or is Verant going to fix it? I sent a bug report and also sent a petiton through a GM in game. Don't know if they will do anything a about it. Anyone know if they did this on purpose? If so this changes a lot of stats on char. My bard, monk, enc, and couple other of my chars had them in range slot. My enc is the only one left who hasnt died yet. So guess i am lucky there. Has anyone heard as to whether they are going to change it back or not?
How to get this Dirk at low-teen levels
# Sep 09 2002 at 3:50 PM Rating: Decent
Ok, I'm prolly gonna hate myself when my Dirk farming spots are all gone, but heres my 2cp.
Idea nuber 1: If you can take out Dorn, try farming him for a while. If no luck, get a port to Gfay, and bind there.
Idea nuber 2: Go to Crushbone (middle of north wall in Gfay) And in the Throne Room this Inky called Ambassador DVinn spawns sometimes. I've seen him drop the dirk a lot more, and whats the coolest is that next pops either Lord Darish *He drops a Dwarven Axe a 6/29 weapon i think, which is 1HS* OR Emperor Crush who drops the Dwarven Ringmail Tunic which is uber for non twinked newbs. The other day I was working on the Screaming Mace quest and killed all of these named mobs for fun, as Crush was light blue, and got all 3 of the above mentioned items.
Idea nuber 3: Just buy one.

If you're on the Solusek Ro server, send me a tell if you want this and I'll sell you one cheap, as they are like no problem for me to get)
Otherwise I hope this helps.

No longer range?
# Sep 06 2002 at 1:41 AM Rating: Decent
My enchanter has had one of these since a nice person gave to me just outside of crushbone when I was around 6th level. Recently, I acquired a walrus tooth so the dragoon dirk got moved to my range slot. Tonight I was killed and when I went to loot my corpse, I could no longer put the dirk in the range slot... Hrmmm So I looked at it and it no longer has a range, and hence I could not equip in range slot...

Not sure if it is a bug or when this even happened as it has been about 2 weeks since the enchanter has been killed. I do know that it was in the range slot before I was killed, but now it won't go back. I will report it as a bug when I log in next time.
RE: No longer range?
# Oct 16 2002 at 9:38 PM Rating: Default
What the heck is all of this being nice to one another on the blue servers? I play a necro named Snecks on the Rallos Zek server, and people on my server are always killing each other for items. Just the other day, my friend killed a twink and looted a froglock crown. I killed a warrior and looted his ringmail tunic.

i had to drop the dirk since they changed it. all of my bags where full. that sucks.
RE: No longer range?
# Sep 07 2002 at 4:43 PM Rating: Excellent
Yep - seems like since the patch the other day this item can no longer be stored in range Smiley: cry. I'm suprised that it changed, but seems like it was intentional Smiley: oyvey (I agree that if it was a bug it would still indicate range in the description).

RE: No longer range?
# Sep 06 2002 at 6:52 PM Rating: Decent
I don't beleive it to be a bug, as it doesn't list range anymore, but we'll see. I, too, can no longer equip it in the range slot.

Farmed one from Dvinn in CB. Took a little to camp tho. With a clarity or breeze up, a 26 Druid can solo the tower no problem. Of course, I had 185 wis, self twinked and still wearing raw hide boots =). Oh, I managed to bump up to 27 finally when I took out Dvinn. Had a little help from a 27 ranger who was camping the warlord. I had lost the breeze. Well, I didn't get the Dirk that day. Came back next day and camped with 2 druids of level 22 and 20. Had a 52 pally to help us kill the greenies and buff us =). Dirk dropped and I kept it. Didn't actually need the dirk, but I just felt like having vengeance a dozen or two times cuz Dvinn took me out once when I was in my low teens. He was trained by someone and I had just zoned into CB then.

At Level 21 I went to seek revenge on Dorn.I am a Barbarian Warrior.The first 2 fights he was Dblue to me.If not for a Mag Pling a frined nearby I would have died.I went back at 23-540 ac 776 hp.He took me to 2 bubbles and he was green.He is very tough.He kicks and double attacks in succssesion.If they all hit for high damage then you are taking 50-70 points plus your stunned just in time for him to hit you again.Casters may be able to take him at lower levels but Melee is not even if you are pretty twinked...BTW I fought him a total of 14 times that dirk
Nice Weapon

This is a great weapon, nice stats, good ratio of damage to delay. I'm wielding an Obsidian Shard I got from some high level magician when I was only level 2, heh. Been looking to repay the favor as soon as I can get a Water Crystal Staff for 1HB. Never too early to start work for the epic. (Well, maybe level 1 is too early =)) I keep the Dragoon Dirk in my Range slot for the stats. Got it from a friend of mine for 50pp. He's a ShadowKnight, so he's about 16 levels ahead of me now, because he doesn't really need groups, I do. Anyway, if you can, get this dirk.

i know this was posted nearly a year ago, but if he sold it to you for 50pp maybe he's not such a friend =O

#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 10 2001 at 7:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i got one today on my rade into Crushbone with my guild... we all rolled and i one. This item is prized on TZ for its Magic resist and dex. I now use it in my range slot for the stats. We also got a dwarven ringmail tunic which was rolled for (the winner just sold it i guess since we are an erudite only guild)
# Aug 07 2001 at 3:12 AM Rating: Default
This dirk is also dropped by RENUX, hehe a mob involved in the rogue EPIC quest. Renux is lvl 53+ so when it drops it rots. Any newbs should go to Steamfont and see if any rogues are killing renux. I am sure they would give you this dirk. At the lvl they are at, these things are toothpicks. Just a thought
Strange Story
# Jul 15 2001 at 2:38 AM Rating: Excellent
My friend was being PLed by a Rogue in Crushbone Tower. D'Vinn spawned, and was holding the Dirk. The rogue disarmed him and the Dirk dropped to the floor. My friend proceeded in picking it up and used it to strike the final blow into the original carrier, D'Vinn. Isn't that ironic? It's sort of one of those "Live by the sword, die by the sword" type things. Makes you think, dosen't it?
RE: Strange Story
# Mar 07 2002 at 8:45 PM Rating: Decent
I thought magic weapons couldn't be disarmed?

If so, this is quite the interesting story... very fitting.
# Jul 14 2001 at 10:48 PM Rating: Decent
I got this weapon fairly easy. First from a friend but sold that one than from another friend and also sold that one. Finally when I killed dvinn again I kept that one. It is a nice weapon for newbies. It has a good balence of delay, speed, and dmg. Out of overall it is great. Since I'm lv 15 and have a "spear of winter," I'm looking for something better. If your interested in buying it give me some email and we will make up a time so I can sell it to you. I not sure if I want to sell it yet but give me a email or tell on the game anyway.

My friend, a lvl 17 Necro. almost had n/p problem taking out Dorn, but he thought Dorn was actully the lvl he conned, so he ended up dead b/c he hadn't casted his pet, for sure would have lived then.

just my 2cp
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 27 2001 at 11:59 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Some guy close to the top has sayed that Bards are the ultimate kiting class. I don't think so!!!! Druids are awsome at kiting. Just putting in my 2cp.

Dragoon Dirk
# Jun 19 2001 at 10:47 AM Rating: Excellent
Finally! After months of trying to Solo him, I did and repeatedly *eg* 7 times in one sitting, NO Dirk! I have been seeking revenge on Dorn for killing me a number of times in my youth...besides I always heard this was a nice Dirk.
So I gave it to my Enchie (yes it has 1 more delay and no STR or sta, but an enchie really could use the dex =)
I know some of you are wondering, why not use the ranged slot. 3 word, Crystalized Shadow Dagger!
Nice combination!
