Scorpion's Stinger is a Dagger in Elden Ring. The Scorpion's Stinger scales primarily with Strength and Dexterity. It is a good Weapon for quickly applying the rot effect and dealing powerful damage-over-time. Particularly great for defeating dragons. 

 

Dagger fashioned from a great scorpion's tail, glistening with scarlet rot.

A ceremonial tool used by heretics, crafted from the relic of a sealed outer god.

      I think it would be cool if this thing instantly proc’d scarlet rot on a backstab or critical hit, similarly to what the cleanrot knights have with their spear grab attack. Daggers as a whole are pretty underpowered, and this weapon even more so with its low crit modifier and unchangeable AoW, so I feel like that would help to give it a leg up compared to other daggers even if it’s only used as a riposte tool like the misericorde

      • Wielding this in my offhand, powerstancing with Reduvia / Black Knife / Misericorde in mainhand.. and it seems the scarlet rot never procs (L1 attack). Can anyone confirm that? Do you need to have it in right hand equipped to proc or what is happening?

          The wolf was on the pommel looks very out of place other than that I like that this blade is basically taken from a scorpion

            Great design, except for the pommel. A wolf head doesn't seem right. Almost feels like a placeholder that made it to release.

              It really needs ability to put Ash of War on this... otherwise Antspur Rapier is superior to it in every way possible.

                    They need to fix some of these weapons and make them able to be infused because this weapon being stuck in stand is total garbage. That’s probably fine but atleast let me buff it with bloodflame blade man

                    • Anonymous

                      Does this weapon instant scarlet rot on critical when upgraded all the way? Just wondering because considering it’s a dagger, it should provide most benefit from critical attack.

                        Stop saying you can apply ashes of war or infusions into this. Seriously.
                        You either dont have the weapon and are providing bullcrap- or dont even have the game.
                        Or you're just flat out cheating
                        Or maybe you're exploiting a bug and you either dont know it or dont want to share it.

                        This weapon. CANNOT be infused, enchanted OR have ashes of war applied to it. End of fvcking story.
                        STOP providing misinformation. Christ some of you make me want to blow my brains out.

                          This is mean my for a pure Dexterity build. Out this weapon in the off hand on your first play through until you get another on ng+. In the off hand the first L1 attack will hit twice. Effectively applying scarlet rot twice. I have 2 of the. At the moment. It’s a fun way to play the game.

                          Pair it up with a duel wield of both the Scalebone and Dragonscale Blade to switch to and it’s an awesome build for a pure dexterity character.

                            Not ashable like other scarlet rot weapons, seems bugged, doesn’t improve the rot buildup. Godawful weapon in the current iteration.

                              I genuinely wonder why this weapon cannot be infused with ashes of war when the Antspur Rapier can? They both have similar scaling and both apply scarlet rot. The only difference is moveset. Oh well, guess I'll have to settle for the rapier for no good reason.

                                the big monster comming out of the waterfall on the oposite side of this item, drop a golden seed ! thats it :P

                                  If you want to go a scarlet rot build. As a weapon Antspur Rapier is probably way better because it can also be infused with ashes of war and works well with a shield. Rotten Breath would still be a better source of rot than any weapon but since the rapier can also be infused with blood or poison it would still be an interesting dps build.
                                  Frost would have probably been my favorite if it wasnt bugged to nullify scarlet rot buildup after a few upgrades.

                                    This dagger is bugged right now, it takes an OBSENE amount of hits to apply the rot to anything. i can go whole boss fights without filling the rot bar once.

                                        Use this one with the dagger that inflicts poison, dual hit bosses 3 or 4 times, double dot on them. Swap to reduvia and the dagger that applies frost, dual hit bosses with those while the dot works. The only problem is how hard this dagger is to acquire, but the combo is ****ing killer. And requires next to zero attribute investment overall.

                                          This weapon can NOT be infused with Ashes of War, and is upgraded with Somber Smithing Stones, not Smithing Stones. Please update

                                            Looted in the Grand Cloister area past the Lake of Rot. Can't remember the exact location, but that area.

                                              Location: In a secret area called Lake of Rot reached by an elevator near the end of Nokstella Eternal City. Once in the Lake of Rot, enter the entrance with two large statues on either side, drop a couple ledges to the bottom, and look for a chest in the temple area. Dagger is in that chest.
