For more information, see Dagger and Weapons (Online).

The dagger is a light, One-Handed weapon with a short blade, hilt, and handle that is found in The Elder Scrolls Online.


Even though daggers do not do as much damage per hit as other One-Handed weapons like the sword, mace, or war axe, the dagger's attack speed is faster, allowing the wielding character to be more nimble and making the dagger a very suitable weapon for the stealthy.


Main article: Block (Online)

The dagger, being the smallest of the wield-able weapon, is the weakest one to use for blocking, since weapons larger than the blocking weapon will force damage through, i.e. a Greatsword will easily penetrate a dagger's block although some damage is still absorbed by the dagger.
