Zero Slash DamageSlash damage and short reach makes this weapon ill-advised for use against the Infested, even when modded with elemental damage.
Ceramic Dagger seems to confer a much higher speed boost with slide attacks than most melee weapons.
When equipped, the Ceramic Dagger adds a 4th lunging stab to its normal attack combo, which propels the Warframe a good distance forward, which is useful in catching up to moving enemies. It also has a 100% chance of inflicting Slash DamageSlash bleed proc. This effect is lost if one uses the Pointed WindPointed Wind stance, which replaces the lunge with a sweeping slash.
If the lunge lands behind an unalerted enemy, a stealth attack will be performed instead.
Prior to Update 22.20 (2018-05-17), the Ceramic Dagger shared its model with the CronusCronus, only scaled down and with a much lower-resolution texture. It was eventually given a similar-but-unique model that resembles a scaled-down Scimitar in shape.
The blueprint used to drop from Jupiter's boss J3-Golem, however this method of obtaining the blueprint is no longer available.
Ironically, despite having a weapon with an overly-curved blade that would be ideal for slashing but highly impractical for stabbing, the Ceramic Dagger deals mainly Puncture DamagePuncture and no Slash DamageSlash damage.
