      The Whetfish Sabers (Rank 9 & 11 Water Element) with built-in protective polish are missing. For those wondering where to get them, you have to do the quest "A Fish to Whet Your Appetite"

        This tree is missing a weapon that can be forged as well as upgrades from the blizzarioths. The weapon has its own tree but at the moment I can’t see it and I was wondering if anyone knows what the weapon is?

          Current Top Tier Dual Blades ***Raw Dmg***: Zireal (From The Witcher Event: Ancient Leshen) <--- Also best or on par with kjarr daggers for dragon element dual blades when element is unlocked ***Elemental Dmg***: Kjarr Daggers (From Arch Tempered Kulve Taroth) Empress Daggers are also top tier if you're unable to complete or farm the event weapons (From Lunastra)

            I made a spreadsheet calculating average damages and cross comparing different daggers I was looking to use. I figured I would post it here in case someone might find it helpful. Some explanations of my spreadsheet is that I found Diablos Clubs ll to be the highest potential dps daggers, but require a ***** load of investment to do so making your build very squishy for just a little extra damage. They also struggle to maintain white sharpness because of how little of it they can actually even get and how low there crit is making masters touch less effective (still very worth using). Diablos Clubs can also have the most defensive setup if you sac a lot of its damage and dont mind using blue sharpness at times. The most well rounded daggers I found to be Empress Daggers "Ruin". They dont require any investment to get white sharpness, and the best damaging set gives masters touch meaning there sharpness sustain is quite good. They get a lot more decorations because of no needed handicraft and 2 decos on weapon. This allows for more defense, while still having great damage. I dont have a good way to calculate blast damage though so I would take those stats with a high amount of inaccuracy, meaning I dont know if non-elemental is technically worth it or not, but form what I can tell it probably is worth using. On top of the great flexibility, it also give the life steal effect making it the best. Empress Daggers "Styx" are good daggers, but have slightly less damage comparied to "Ruin". They do gain 1 extra decoration though since you can droop a critical eye but when used with one of the best armor sets (4 piece Drachen Alpha Armor Set + dragonking eyepatch) they lose a lot of value due to how easy it is to maintain sharpness when you have 95% crit on weakspot/45% crit on non weakspot with "Ruin". Even with that said though, if you use "Styx" with that set, you will never have to sharpen your daggers again honestly. Thats 100% crit on weakspot/50% crit non weakspot. No sharpness lost on crit which is 100% of the time on weakspots, and 50% reduced sharpness loss overall from razor sharp. Thismeans you only lose sharpness at roughly 75% slower rate when not hitting the weakspot. Fire and Ice arnt bad daggers either. They are nice entry level daggers and are pretty fun to use honestly. They also allow you to be much more defensive because they dont want to use non-elemental giving an extra deco and have decent base crit making it easier to sustain sharpness. Overall a solid choice. Wrathful Predation have higher damage then Fire and Ice, but you want to use non-elemental (unless you want elder seal for an elder dragon) and less crit means less sharpness sustain, but they do have more white sharpness then fire and ice so its not that noticeable. They also dont get a decoration slot so that hurts defensively, but they can gain access to 2 augments which could make them better choices depending on your augmentation situation for weapons. Decimation Claws are basically just entry level daggers. They cant get white sharpness, but that also means that they dont use handicraft giving more slots for defensive decorations which can help newer players. Overall there damage isnt that much lower then the others, but the fact that your sharpness isnt white will come to hurt you at times depending on what monster part your hitting and could technically mean you deal less damage then expected and I cant calculate that damage loss. So the damage of blue sharpness is actually lower then displayed in comparison to white sharpness when hitting very hard monster parts.
