So I've been making up my new PC and I wanted him to be a more combat-shy person who has just a small knife on him in the case that he needs to defend himself. In my building, however, I got to thinking. What benefits does taking a dagger have?? From what I can tell the only major benefit is that it costs almost nothing to use one but that's it. I know that in other organizations the dagger is useful because "Waylay" can only be performed with a dagger, making them fill a niche role that rogues and sneaky types can capitalize on, but seeing as waylay doesn't even require a weapon to perform, I'm struggling to find a justification for holding onto a dagger after early levels instead of a sword or something. I'm happy to be proved wrong, but from what I can glean I got nothin'.
