Ryunohige is a polearm that provides 91 damage, 492 delay, augments jump attacks and allows the use of the Weapon Skill Drakesbane. Its aftermath increases Accuracy and Attack. It occasionally attacks twice. It deals 11.1 damage per second and accumulates 133 TP per hit. It can be equipped by level 75 Dragoon. It can be obtained from the "Mythic Weapons" quest or the special Nomad Mog Bonanza 2010 (Rank 1) event.
In the original versions, Dragon Whisker is the second-strongest spear, beaten by the Zodiac Spear. It has 91 points in Attack Power and 8 in Evasion and takes 60 LP to unlock on the License Board. Spears are among the faster weapons with 2.14s charge and 1.2s action time, second only to daggers and ninja swords. Dragon Whisker is not an elemental weapon and does not give the user any special effects. Like most of the powerful weapons, Dragon Whisker cannot be bought.
The Dragon Whisker can be found in four randomly spawning treasure urns: The first can be found at the Cerobi Steppe. There is a 50% chance that the chest will appear at the North Liavell Hills area, however, there is only a 5% chance that the chest will contain the Dragon Whisker and this is while the party has the Diamond Armlet equipped. The next three chests can be found at the Pharos, two of them in hidden areas at the first flight of the Spire Ravel in the Third Ascent. The two have a 55% spawn rate. The first can be found North of the waystone and has a 50% chance of containing the spear. The third can be found west of the Waystone and has a 100% chance of containing the spear, but this is only with the Diamond Armlet equipped.
The fourth and the final chest can be found in the Subterra. It's in the southwestern room's sub room on the right and the chest will always be in the northwestern corner, but to find the spear the player must unequip any Diamond Armlets. The changes of actually getting the spear are slim.
In the Zodiac versions, it provides 100 Attack, 8 Evade, 28 CT, 4% combo rate, has a 15% chance of inflicting Disable on a target and requires the Dragon Whisker license for 70 LP. It can be found as a treasure in the Lhusu Mines (Lasche Span) and Cerobi Steppe (Feddik River), and rarely stolen from War-chief Supinelu in Trial Mode Stage 53 and uncommonly stolen from Diabolos in Stage 72.
The stronger version, Vrsabha (Dragon Whisker L in International) provides 108 Attack, 40 Evade, 28 CT, 10% combo rate, has a 50% chance of inflicting Disable on a target and requires the Vrsabha license for 100 LP.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Dragon Whisker is counterpart to the Whale Whisker weapon. A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, which is featured in the myths of many cultures. The weapon's feature of using the whiskers of the dragon are more aligned with the aspects of the Asian dragon, where they are often depicted with whiskers (attributed either to Rat's features, where the Dragon is said to be the amalgamation of the Chinese Zodiac pantheon, or the carp, which they are said to descend from). The inclusion of a dragon's breath in the tip of the whisker also alludes rather to, instead of a Western dragon's fiery breath, the cloudy and ki infused breath of the Asian dragon.
