This master blade is the heavier, oversized and far more lethal version of the signature weapon of an extinct order of Tenno assassins.

The Karyst Prime is the primed variant of the KarystDagger.png Karyst, with an even lower attack speed, but very high damage, good critical strikes, and good status chance. It also grants 10% movement speed bonus when equipped.

Trivia[]

  • The namesake and a part of the dagger's design (that is the wavy, flame-like portion of the blade) are inspired by the Kris, a dagger of Javanese (Indonesian) origin.
    • Traditionally, the belief is held that poison added to the Kris during the forging process grants it an envenoming effect when used in combat.  Further, the "flambard" style blade would help hold poisons applied to the blade before combat, as well as inflict more substantial wounds against sliced opponents; a useful characteristic against unarmored opponents in hot weather climates.  This is the likely inspiration for this weapon doing toxin damage.
    • The unique and different approach to the Karyst Prime's design compared to the original Karyst is a combination of the regular Karyst/Kris element (wavy blade) and Egyptian jewelry and knives (the curved, hook-like tip) that were used during the mummification process[1] to complement Inaros' Prime theme as ancient Egypt-themed Warframe.
