Crystal Sage's Rapier is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Thrusting Sword with tiny crystals scattered across its blade, used by the Crystal Sages for self-defence.

The crystals boost the magic damage inflicted by the sword, and the item discovery of its wielder, fruit of the lifetime of research conducted by the sages.

Skill: Stance.
From stance, use normal attack to back step and execute a surprise attack, or a strong attack for consecutive thrusting.



Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Upgraded with Titanite Scales.
  • Increases Item Discovery by 50 (the effect occurs even if the stat requirements are not met so long as the item is equipped in an active slot).
  • Wielding two will provide full item discovery bonus from both of the weapons, granting a total bonus of 100 item discovery. 
  • Can be used efficiently together with Symbol of Avarice, Covetous Gold Serpent Ring, and either a Rusted Coin or a Rusted Gold Coin.
  • If this item is equipped in one hand, while two-handing a weapon in the other hand, the item discovery bonus will still be active.
  • Is the longest Thrusting Sword in the game.

      Anyone done farming with these and have 1 or 2 crystal rapiers that they don't need anymore? I need them to farm Human Dregs and Proof of Concords. I'm in NG and accidentally used my Sage soul for the sorcery. I'd like to farm all covenant items before NG+. Please end my suffering! PSN: AdrianTheDork505

        This can be used for parrying in your offhand, so you get a tool that boosts item discovery and parries attacks.

          I hate when a boss-tier weapon is reduced to a mere trinket you carry purely due to Miyazaki's*****s-n-giggles.

          Since this weapon can be swung horizontally by the boss, why not let the players do the same with it? And if it has Crystals on the blade, that only makes the poor physical damage inexcusable along with the poor magic damage this weapon gets. The R1s can poke, but let the R2s be swings for Slash damage if nothing else.

            An active slot means I'd have to hold it to get the stat gain, correct? I'm farming Swordgrass at so 196, and it's a pain.

              Imgine if its weapon art was that horizontal swipe that the actual boss does with it. Kinda like a shorter version of the pontiff knight curved sword's weapon art, but maybe a bit faster to compensate. Its a shame that a cool looking weapon like this is only being used for farming items.

                288 magic damage and 126 physical damage at 60/40 dex/int.
                Compared to a Sharp Rapier that can reach 350 AR (40 dex) before even being buffed, this thing is useless for attacking enemies.

                  Wow ***** you stat requirements says my sorceress - I'm playing around with CMW vs my +10 Crystal Dagger on the Lothric Knights at the castle bonfire before going onto NG+ (farming spec - 99 luck, 70 int, no str or dex) and this thing at +4 does comparable damage to CMW-buffed +9 Raw Rapier. 700ish vs 800ish back stab, 435 vs 451 charged r2, and nearly the same damage on Stance attacks. Obviously the Rapier is the stronger one in each of these instances but holy *****ing*****. Just the int scaling alone on this early game weapon *with stat penalty on the physical* is enough to nearly match an endgame sorcery cast from an endgame staff? And yeah it's fkn ridiculous, like 364 crystal sage AR vs about 540+ buffed raw rapier AR

                    I planned a build that uses this weapon in offhand to parry. Turns out it can't. Learn the weapons before making harsh decisions, my friends

                      Anyone have an extra one of these that they'd be willing to trade me for? Farming covenant items is driving me insane and I only need to farm Silver Knights and Deacons, but it's taking me years!!! PSN: AdrianTheDork505

                        It is a pity it doesn't have a better critical, 130 would have be perfect. Only thing I don't like about this weapon is it doesn't allow "kicking." Because of this it isn't a good weapon to use against shield barring foes.

                            I don't have the dex requirements for this, but I have it equipped and my Item Discovery still only has the base value. Something I'm missing?

                                Everyone talks about its item discovery bonus but how viable is it in combat when upgraded? I only have 20 in Dex but I have 50 in Intelligence.and Strenght.
