Is this counted as a Quest Item (in that, it will disappear forever upon Ascension)? I mean, it doesn't say in the item description, but that's a hell of a nice item for a Softcore run. Extra 15 damage if you land the attack, and that's not even counting weaknesses...--Doomsday Forte 23:43, 2 July 2007 (CDT)

  • If it was a quest item, it would say that in the description. *nod* --Ricket 00:02, 3 July 2007 (CDT)
    • Thank you kindly, sir. This is going to be a definite pull from Hagnk's once I ascend!  :d --Doomsday Forte 19:15, 3 July 2007 (CDT)

I think that fable reference is highly suspect, many games used obsidian weapons before that one came out, furthermore, I'd suppose a few ancient civilizations made stuff out of obsidian as well.--Hamelin 18:08, 18 July 2007 (CDT)

Well, the question is that what games have obsidian weapons that glow blue? That'll probably be what the reference is...--MaskedLihc 20:26, 18 July 2007 (CDT)

Regarding the "The eerie blue glow mentioned is a reference to Sting, a sword from the Lord of the Rings series." reference, I thought that a) Sting only glows in the presence of orcs and b) it is not due to any sort of reflection. I'm leaving the reference up for now though, I am kind of wary over removing so many references in a row. --Egs 16:36, 28 July 2007 (CDT)

  • I agree with Egs here... this item obviously references the subtle knife, but in my opinion the blue glow isn't enough to indicate a LOTR reference, especially as the subtle knife has a blue tinge of it's own --Cheezehog 04:42, 17 October 2007 (CDT)
    • I thought it might somehow reference Obsidian Entertainment, like perhaps they have or had a logo that glowed blue, but I haven't found anything to substantiate that theory yet. --Olaf the Hungry 03:46, 10 November 2007 (CST)

Does anyone know if there's any chance of this item breaking, like the ancient items do? I ask because real obsidian shatters easily, and if whoever designed this weapon is aware of that, they may have incorporated that into the design. --Olaf the Hungry 01:38, 22 August 2007 (CDT)

  • No, it doesn't. Stop giving Jick ideas.--Terry2 02:44, 22 August 2007 (CDT)

I think this particular dagger is a reference to Gidbinn, the Obsidian dagger in Act III of Diablo II, given how this area seems to refer to that a lot. --RegalStar 23:35, 9 November 2007 (CST)

Mall value?

There's no market value statistics. Is that because you can't sell, or no one will sell? --Albino Toad 20:53, 29 September 2011 (CEST)

  • See where it says the item can't be traded? That also means it can't be placed in the mall. --Azrane 21:23, 29 September 2011 (CEST)
