kill RoBF with a dagger? (in General)

i just looked at dagger, has a nice PTH upgrade curve. Or am I mistaken? Would it be easy to say get it up to +200 with just a few million?

With all the 20 hp RoBF, I would just love to run up and smack them with one of those babies.

The largest problem with this plan is that a Dagger will have to be forged up....

three4thsforsaken January 29 2008 3:26 AM EST

so the low NW growth has nothing to do with the forging cycle?

You just have to use time to upgrade it, you can't use the BS, the biggest dagger is +150 (or more) and its less than 20 mil.

I've proposed this before, but due to the dagger's low damage output, a RoBF minion would only need a few thousand HP or so to shun this off as well...

A Dagger [4x567] (+150) owned by Lumberg (Lorenzo)

That's the largest Dagger in the game. Unfortunately, Daggers don't have a section on the "Most Valuable Items" page (because they're worthless?), so I don't know the NW. The character has about 50 mil NW, though, with a JKF, an ELS, and some other stuff on.

I'd bet that a Dagger could do some decent damage in the hands of an outrageously-high-ST minion. Especially if that one got named.

"outrageously-high-ST minion"

That is a lot of exp you need to sink into 1 minion to get a dagger to be effective, I don't think the best way for a character to kill of an RoBF user is with a dagger, besides most big melee tanks use big melee weapons and IMO the best way to kill of RoBF characters is with a big melee weapon combined with EC.

... yeah good luck keeping up with my evasion ...

two words CoC + NS.

I think with the highest dagger, people were doing less then 100k damage a hit with over 2m strength.

Nice theory, but with the base damage being only 4, it is not a viable one.

Barely strong enough for tanks, made for RoBF haters.

To elaborate on may last post...

The new weapon could have:

(1) The damage output of the biggest 2-handed store weapon.
(2) Low '+' upgrade/forging cost.
(3) High 'x' upgrade/forging cost.

So it would be a low damage dealer, but one that can hit high Evasion minions during melee rounds.
