Dragonbane is an artifact weapon that does double damage against dragons and grants reflection when wielded. Like most artifacts that target a specific class of monster, the damage bonus from Dragonbane is largely useless in the general case. However, getting Dragonbane from sacrificing will unrestrict broadsword skill, which might allow you to wield Stormbringer effectively, if you found it in a bones pile. And of course, the reflection is useful if you do not yet have another source of it.

In SporkHack and UnNetHack Dragonbane is instead a dwarvish spear that confers fire, cold, acid, sleep, disintegration and shock resistance while wielded, and has a 50% chance of instantly slaying dragons (instakill chance is reduced to 20% for UnNetHack[1]). It also gets +d5 to hit and +d4 damage against all enemies. (If you are polymorphed into a dragon, a monster wielding Dragonbane can instantly kill you!)
