      Is there any point to upgrading this weapon? Does upgrading it increase the amount of poison applied with each hit? I only use it for applying poison.

        2 hand wielding this is wasteful (low base dmg, poison needs time to rack up even on trash mobs). Having high dex doesn't help. It can serve as fun weapon for some bosses, especially ones who are succeptible to poison, but you will find that applying poison to other daggers work better for 2h wielding. Playing it in 1h is way better, consider off-hand in your build.

        • Quite possibly my favorite poison wpn because it's a dagger and dagger movesets are amazing. That being said, it's probably the only poison wpn that doesnt have extra blunt, thus making the gun that you will most likely pair with it weaker than it would be with any other poison wpn that has extra blunt.

            This weapon swings RIDICULOUSLY fast when one-handing. That ,added with the fact that the poison damage stacks, makes this weapon a really surprising boss melter for fast dex builds
