The Ceremonial Dagger is a returning item in Risk of Rain 2.
Upon killing an enemy, spawns 3 daggers. Each of these daggers deals 150% (+150% per stack) base damage. Each of these daggers can crit separately and is affected by your crit chance at the time of creating the daggers.
The smell of sulfur fills the air. "Oh god, they're so close. They have Hitchcock. Oh god." "Grab the - the dagger. From my backpack. Quick." "I-I don't... I got it. What the hell? This isn't gonna work, Marion. What the hell am I supposed to do with this against those...? They blew him into pieces - oh god." "You have to... you have to kill me - ah! Kill me. Kill me with it." "What? What the hell?" "Yeah - it's the only way. Please." "What are you saying? Stop!" "It's a magic dagger. It'll save us. She will save us. But you have to kill me with it." "Please don't... please don't make me. Oh god." "Y-you have to. I've seen how this works. It's the only way - they're coming so close. You have to use it on me. Kill me." "I'm so sorry Marion. I'm so so sorry. I don't think-" "Do it. Do it now. DO IT NOW! DO IT NOW! DO IT-"
- If the daggers have no target after spawn, they float in mid-air, then drop onto the ground after a while.
