The Murder Knife from Dragon Age 2

Your favorite Dragon Age 2 plot device is now in your hands...minus the instakill.

640 polys (1.2k tris) with a 1024x2048 texture. This was based on the Dragon Age 2 version of the knife. I used screenshots I took ingame and some from the Dragon Age wiki (because I didn't want to find specific plot points in my saves). Made using Photoshop CS4 and 3ds Max 2011.

There are two versions: The Murder Knife (not craftable or enchantable) and Steel Knife (craftable and enchantable; listed under Steel).

The unique variant can be found northeast of Riverwood (just right out of town) in the back of its last victim (who is currently lying on a boulder). See video for exact location. If you have the "Dovahkiin Hideout" and "Spend Dragon Souls for Perks" mods installed, it is on the same side of the river between the stones and the hideout entrance.

To craft, you'll need the same ingredients as a steel dagger, but with a few more leather strips. To temper both variants, you'll need a steel ingot.

Stats: The unique variant has better raw damage, crit damage, and weighs a pound less than a steel dagger. It also uses Ghostblade's and Valdr's Lucky Dagger's enchantments to apply armor-ignoring damage and have a 25% chance to inflict a critical hit. The standard variant is still better than a steel dagger, but the improvements are toned down a bit.


About the description:
In DA2, you have a dialog wheel from which you choose your response. If I remember correctly, the third option (bottom left in a 4 option wheel) triggered some kills with the knife. I thought it an appropriate description for the weapon that DA2 players would get.

If you don't know what a dialog wheel is, here's another way to look at it: In games, you usually get a couple options: 1) Help Party A and anger party B and 2) Help Party B and anger Party A. But the kicker is you don't really care for either side. So, here's option number 3: Kill 'em both.
