The Diggler is a normal Unique Dagger with an item level of 15 and a Character Level requirement of 11.


Daggers aren't commonly used in Diablo II owing to their low damage and durability. Shorter and less damaging than swords, they can be used with a shield by any character, and generally have a faster swing speed than the larger, two-handed models, though they also have a surprisingly slow Attack Rate.

There is just one dagger-specific skill in the game, the Necromancer's Poison Dagger, but that's a very underpowered skill in Diablo II, outside of early game or single-player. The skill adds poison damage to his melee attack, but only works with a dagger.

  • In 1.10 of the Expansion the odds of gambling a Unique is 1 in 2000.
  • Normal Uniques are identical in Diablo II and the Expansion.


  • Item Level: Chests and monsters must be at least this level to drop the item. Ilvl is used in gambling, sales and other calculations as well.
  • Clvl Req: Your character must be this level or higher to equip the item. No Uniques had Clvl requirements prior to v1.07 D2.
  • Range: Goes from 1 (least) to 5 (most), and is identical for all melee weapon types. I.E. a 3 sword = a 3 spear = a 3 hammer.
  • Dmg Bonus: This determines how you multiply the item damage by your stats to reach the actual damage. Each point in this statistic multiplies your damage by bonus/100 %. For example a damage bonus of 70 is 70/100 or and additional .7% weapon damage per point. Most weapons have 100 str, which gives 100/100 or an additional 1% weapon damage per point in str.
  • Weapon Speed (WSM): A relative comparison to other weapons of the same type. 0 is the base -10, -20, etc is faster, 10, 20, etc is slower.
  • Swing Speed: The speed shown in-game for each character using this melee weapon. This speed is mostly meaningless and is included for completeness only. Characters are abbreviated to their first letters, with Amazon = Am and Assassin = As.
