In Elden Ring, Scorpion’s Stinger is a unique dagger that is especially ideal for Agility and Strength builds. Red Rot is a condition effect that deals damage over time based on the target’s health, but is independent of the weapon’s physical damage. This allows Scorpion Sting to deal damage from the effect faster than Poison Weapons, but as a trade-off, the effect does not last as long.
About the scorpion sting dagger
As you might expect, Scorpion Sting is a fantastic option to use in some of the best bandit builds in Elden Ring, as Agility is a primary stat for this class. Although the effect of red rot is independent of the weapon itself, the dagger’s physical damage increases with strength and agility. In addition, it is a relatively easy weapon to use, since the only prerequisite is the presence of the 6th level of Strength and the 12th level of Dexterity, and the Rogue class already meets both of these requirements.
Where to find Scorpion Sting
To find Scorpion Sting, you can head to the Lake of Rot in the northwestern part of the map and find the dagger in a chest. Unlike some other weapons in Elden Ring, such as Reduvia’s dagger, there is no boss or fight that must be completed before reaching the chest. After reaching the Lake of Rot, cross the swamp and go to the entrance with large statues to get to the Great Abode of Grace. From there, go down the ledges and go west until you find a lone chest.
Uses and Features of the Scorpion Sting Dagger
Because Red Rot deals damage based on the target’s health, Scorpion’s Sting is especially effective against enemies with low immunity defense. In addition, the Scorpion’s Sting already has the Repetitive Strike weapon skill built into it, so none of the Ashes of War skills in Elden Ring can be applied to it. Repeated Strike can unleash a flurry of attacks on the enemy, making it easier to apply the Sting Root effect.
The sting of the scorpion is especially effective against large enemies, since the damage from the rot effect depends on the percentage of health of the enemy. This percentage stays the same no matter how much health he has, making it useful for defeating stronger bosses in Elden Ring.
