Priscilla's Dagger is a Weapon in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.


"This sword, one of the rare dragon weapons, came from the tail of Priscilla, the Dragon Crossbreed in the painted world of Ariamis."
"Possessing the power of lifehunt, it dances about when wielded, in a fashion reminiscent of the white-robed painting guardians."

How to Get / Where to Find the Priscilla's Dagger



Hints and Tips:

  • Give to Frampt to receive 5000 souls.
  • Strong attack is altered into a vicious rising slash to downward slash that can be followed up with a spinning horizontal slash with additional input.
  • Bleed build up is 20 per strike, and once inflicted will tear 50% of the opponents HP.
  • TIP: Before the battle begins, while Priscilla is standing there (no boss health bar at the bottom of the screen), position yourself near her tail. Hit her TAIL as a start to the fight. Keep swinging as she turns invisible because she wont attack you until shes completely vanished. After about 1/4th of her health bar drops, the tail should come right off.
  • The weapons bleed effect may break through the Greatshield of Artorias(confirmation needed).
  • Warning! It has the highest Bleed damage in the game at 50% (30% being the norm.) However it boasts the slowest Build up at 20bu. For comparison, Bandit's Knife has 33bu and Gold Tracer has 50bu. Meaning that for every 2 hits from G.T or 3 from B.K; You'd need 5 from Priscilla's to match it.
  • A fully upgraded Priscilla's Dagger with 40 Dex does 269 (Slash) damage. This is before any modifiers and resistances.

        It's a literal pain in the ass to get, but it's more than worth it.
        It can end long tedious tank and chug matches almost instantly. One of the three meta breaking daggers.

          a lil tip for ppl who arent in ng+ or didnt get the lortd vessel (mid game players basically)
          if you failed to get the dagger (killed her) you can force quit and loss some progress which are only a few steps but you will be able to retry getting the dagger if you still cant get the dagger switch your weapon to some heavy sword/axe

            If you don’t want to kill Priscilla and want the dagger, here’s a guide.
            1. You’ll need the Lordvessel, so go kick O&S’ butts
            2. Rest at the painted world bonfire
            3. Beat painted world and JUMP OFF, do not attempt to get the tail yet.
            4. Go to any bonfire that can be warped from and warp to the painted world bonfire (do not rest on it, if you did, repeat step 3)
            5. Go to Priscilla and cut off her tail, after that bone out.
            6. When you’re out, absolve sins at Oswald.
            7. Profit.

                I struggled cutting the tail until I used great scythe +10 with gold pine resin and power withing and started the fight with 2xR2 to the tail. It also seems to stagger her out of invisibility easier to get the last couple of hits in. Lifehunt build here I come :)

                  Try dual wielding with Gold Tracer in the left hand. Build bleed with GT and finish with Priscilla's to take advantage of the 50% bleed damage. R2 after GT for spinning blade dance

                    If you use firestorm, fire tempest, or chaos firestorm it is easy to make her visible. Then use a really fast, but weak Weapon like the gold tracer and only focus on the tip of the tail it is really easy to cut off, even on NG++++.

                      its actually pretty deadly in pvp. nobody expects this weapon to be used and it inflicts bleed really fast. apart from the lifehunt scyth its a good choice for pure bleed

                        Tbh if you have Uchigatana, just keep using it, it has better range, damage, and the bleeding effect (even if to a weaker extent), not only that, but uses the slash/thrust move-set. The weapon as whole is just underwhelming as a whole, if you still want to have a weapon similar to this, Just grab your Uchigatana (or any similar weapon), upgrade it so that it’s occult, and bam, you have an overall better version of this dagger. Only try to use it if you have a high dex build, because DANG THE DEX SCALING is GOOD (I wasn’t trying to tear into people who use the dagger, just trying give a disclaimer)

                          Is it possible to build up other creatures' bleed meter with, say, the Gold Tracer or Iaito, and then trigger the bleed effect with this for higher damage, or is it considered a different "type" of bleed since it has a different Aux effect?
