Dragonbane is an artifact weapon that does double damage against dragons. Like most artifacts that target a specific class of monster, 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.

In the development version which will become NetHack 3.6.1, it grants reflection when wielded.

In SporkHack, UnNetHack, and SLASH'EM, 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!)
