The Smithscript Dagger is a new Throwing Weapon in the Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. This weapon is perfect for dealing ranged damage to enemies, making it a valuable addition to your arsenal. To wield the Smithscript Dagger, you will need to meet certain stat requirements: 5 STR, 11 DEX, 11 INT, and 11 FAI. The dagger comes with the Ash of War: Piercing Throw, which allows you to throw the dagger further and pierce through enemy defenses, making it effective against armored foes and dragons.

You can upgrade the Smithscript Dagger to +25 using standard Smithing Stones. The item description of the dagger mentions that it is engraved with a smithscript, enhancing its effects and allowing it to function as a throwing dagger for all attacks. Additionally, once thrown, the dagger will instantly reappear in the wielder’s hand, making it convenient for continuous combat.

To find the Smithscript Dagger, head to the Gravesite Plane within the Ruined Forge Lava Intake. You can reach this location by warping to the Castle Front Site of Grace and then heading southeast along the lower cliffs. Inside the area, follow the path until you reach a ladder that leads to a lever. Pull the lever to drop a large column, which will open up further into the dungeon.

However, the Smithscript Dagger is not far from the lever. After dropping down and defeating the enemy in the room, loot the item against the wall to obtain the dagger. Make sure to explore the dungeon further to collect the Anvil Hammer and an Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone at the end.

In conclusion, the Smithscript Dagger is a powerful throwing weapon that can help you deal with enemies from a distance in Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. Upgrade it, utilize its unique features, and explore the dungeon to find this valuable weapon and other useful items. Happy hunting!
