25% chance of a critical hit.
|Class: One Handed, Dagger|
|Upgrade Material: Steel Ingot|
|Perk: Steel Smithing|
The dagger is owned by a Nord hunter named Valdr who received it as a gift from his good friend Ari. During a failed incursion into Moss Mother Cavern, Ari and their friend Niels were killed by a Spriggan, leaving Valdr wounded and unable to return home.
Valdr's Lucky Dagger grants a 25% chance of a critical hit with each strike. The weapon cannot be disenchanted since its unique ability is inherent to the dagger itself, rather than an applied enchantment.
It can be upgraded with a Steel Ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement. The Arcane Blacksmith perk is not required as the dagger is not actually enchanted.
- Sneak attacks are not considered critical hits by the game, therefore it is possible to perform a sneak attack and receive a critical hit for added damage.
- When placed into a weapon rack, the dagger may become stuck, unable to be retrieved.
- -If Valdr is attacked by an enemy before he finishes talking at the end of the quest, the dagger will still be put into the player's inventory. After the enemy is defeated, he will restart his speech and give the player a second dagger.
