Rapier is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A lightweight thrusting sword used in noble duels employing refined techniques.

The primary attack of a thrusting sword is a series of stabs that render foes vulnerable for a devastating final thrust. Can also attack with shield up.

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



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Can parry when used as an offhand weapon.
  • One of the few non-dagger weapons which the Sorcerer class can wield without any Str and Dex leveling.
  • Has 130 critical damage, making it tied with the Crow Quills for the highest critical damage on a Thrusting Sword.
  • The lighest of all the Thrusting Swords and is by far the shortest one.

      A decent early weapon for Sorcerer class (pure mage, for the matter) since it doesn't require any Str or Dex leveling. And if you aren't looking for scaling, you can simply infuse it with Raw, Fire or Deep Gems. Then, you can focus on leveling only Intelligence in which you can reach 50 Int right at SL40.

        Oh man, I just found this thing and I am having so much fun. Every time I stab something, I imagine my character saying some random French sounding word (anguard, touche, sacrebleu etc). It's also so easy to hit thing in narrow hallways. Probably the best weapon for a new guy, you can also learn to parry with it.

        • 13 Nov 2016 09:57  

          Did noone notice that the rapier is turned the wrong way around while held in the main hand?
          While held in the main hand the handguard is on the inside, thus providing no defence. While held in the off hand the guard is facing outwards and thus providing defence to your hand and fingers.

          What do you guys think, is it just an oversight or was the rapier ingame originally intended to be an offhand only weapon?

          • Parrying13 Aug 2016 09:10  

            Has anyone actually tested this weapon's parry frames? The animation itself looks very similar to the Parrying Dagger animation, except it twists around a little bit more before fending off an atttack. I've tested on the hollows in front of Firelink Shrine and it seems pretty sucky. Maybe if i tried with enemies that are easier to parry like the Black Knights or straight sword Lothric Knights?

            • New Critical Rate08 Jul 2016 00:43  

              As of update 1.05/App 1.09, the Rapier has 130 Critical damage, this essentially makes the Rapier a perfect weapon for PVPers and Offline play for the entirely of the game, especially when wielded in the left hand (assuming you're quick enough to switch to two-handed for a quick riposte, right after a parry).

              • Excellent early game weapon12 Jun 2016 12:31  

                My preferred secondary to my Legion Scimitars, the rapier perfectly complements them due to covering all their weaknesses. Heavily armored enemy? No problem just switch to this pure piercing weapon. Tight hallway? No problem all the attacks are thrusts. Having trouble dodging an attack? Switch to this and a shield to either parry or turtle.

                • Lightning Infusion = cannot buff!26 May 2016 13:06  

                  I'm about to start NG+ and have been infusing and testing with various weapons. I infused a +4 rapier with lightning and now I cannot buff it with Carthus or Magic! Thought I was doing something wrong but it just won't have it.....can anyone else test this please?

                  • Ahh the humble rapier18 May 2016 13:07  

                    Way back in Dark Souls 1 this was the piercing sword everyone complained about thanks to its crit, but now it gets to sit back and relax while estoc takes all the attention.

                    • Parry Animation15 May 2016 14:02  

                      The Parry Animation seems actualy the same as the Parrying Dager does it have less frames or is the parry Dagger actuall just *****sngiggels on From's site?

                      • Give this weapon a shot in your offhand with simple infusion30 Apr 2016 16:18  

                        This weapon, while infused with a simple gem and used in your offhand, really compliments an Exile greatsword user (as well as people who spam their weapon art in general) because the Exile greatsword's weapon art cannot be parried, and therefore, the fp regen becomes very useful to have, especially for fight clubs if you run out of ashen estus and fp. Not to mention, you can parry with it and it has a fast attack animation which becomes useful for poke damage if you can't seem to hit them very often with your main weapon. Also, if you use weapon buffs like Dark Blade or Carthus Flame arc, having the rapier in your offhand means that you don't have to switch your main weapon and cancel the buff. Give this one a try in pvp. It will make you fairly unpredictable and very versatile. Also, if you need to block, you can always just two hand your greatsword since it has decent stability and it's guard absorption is on par with some small shields.

                        • Upgrade tree16 Apr 2016 10:31  

                          Before I make a wrong choice, does anyone know which upgrade path is best to follow for the rapier?<br/>The table REALLY needs filling in for this weapon.<br/>Thanks<br/>

                          • Weapon art23 Mar 2016 19:57  

                            OH GOD IT'S GOOD LOOKING.<br/>Strong attack weapon art is basically a forward lunge with a VERY quick flurry of attacks, finished with a forward lunging thrust at the end. Basically a souped up Ricard's rapier r2.
