Bloodthirst is a legendary Dagger wielded by Orin that makes critical hits more likely and can make targets vulnerable to Piercing or more likely to be hit, depending on which hand the weapon is equipped on.

Description Icon.png

The Lord of Murder wasn't always a lord. He was once just a petty killer. When Bhaal first drew blood in a Baldurian back-alley, it dropped to the ground and lingered. When he ascended, this dried blood-drop grew, warped - and became sharp.

Where to find


Netherstone-Pommelled Bloodthirst Icon Small.png
  • This can be looted directly from Orin's body after defeating her. If looted before finishing combat, the item will be labeled as Netherstone-Pommelled Bloodthirst on her body. Once obtained, the game will automatically separate them as Orin's Netherstone and Bloodthirst in the player's inventory.
  • The Improved Critical effect applies to all attacks made while the weapon is equipped, not just attacks with this weapon. As such, it can stack with ranged weapons such as The Dead Shot that have a similar effect.
