The Spira Prime is the Prime variant of the Spira throwing daggers, featuring an increase in fire rate, reload speed, status chance, and critical damage multiplier in exchange for reduced damage.

On December 6th, 2017, it was announced that Spira Prime would enter the Prime Vault and its relics retired from the drop tables on December 12th, 2017, along with Saryn Prime and Nikana Prime. Any preexisting components or fully-built weapons will remain as is.
