Ricard's Rapier is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A strikingly decorative rapier of an Undead prince spoken of in ancient stories.

Although many of the tales surrounding the prince are questionable, this thrusting weapon suggests that the stories of his graceful technique were in fact true.

Skill: Ricard's Lunge and Press
Assume a quick stance, lunge forward, and execute a stunning chain attack. Sustain offensive with strong attack. 



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Although Ricard's Lunge and Press looks similar to the Rapier's multi-hit weapon skill, it gains unusually large amounts of damage from weapon buffs such as Carthus Flame Arc, applying the buff multiple times instead of once for the overall combo.  (Note that this does not apply to infusions such as Chaos, only to weapon buffs).



Location/Where to Find

  • Obtained from a hostile NPC in Archdragon Peak. The NPC is summoned by the man-serpent closest to the Great Belfry bonfire. The NPC uses the Rapier.

      I remember when the fast multi-stab attack of this thing was the coolest thing ever in DS1. In DS3 it's nothing special when compared to many other attacks, it really gives you an idea on how the movesets evolved... not that I'm complaining :^D

        It seems i'm just incapable of using rapiers right. They are so inconvenient for me. I like nothing about them besides fashion.
        - R1 attacks have a very low reach and wonky hitbox / target tracking making it extremely hard to hit people unless going point blank.
        - The damage is not that good.
        - Backstep-slash that replaces the kick is useless, you are now incapable of dealing with shield users unless swaping to another weapon (or two-handing the shield)
        - Weapon art is dumb because of how well telegraphed it is. They could've at least give it hyperpoise but no, you can easily be interrupted. Only a very stupid person would get caught by that.

        For comparison - Lothric Straight Sword does everything better: higher damage, better reach, aoe, a viable kick to deal with shields, extremely useful weapon art.
        I guess that's just me but this particular rapier is just a big bag of *****s and doesn't work in my hands.

        • 16 Nov 2016 09:23  

          Carthus Milkring does wonders for this weapon. Roll a few times to completely disappear and hide the incredibly telegraphed salute before the multi thrusts. Best used with a WA shield and untrue dark ring to slightly disguise your visibility more during invasions or jolly co-op.

          • Crystal infuse is so much fun30 Aug 2016 04:13  

            On a 50 int 40 dex with a crystal infusion the weapon art hits for 1200 on most people it's hard to land but if you can bait people in with spells it will instantly kill most phantoms/invaders.

            • Surprised24 Jul 2016 13:38  

              Its quite good, excellent weapon for any glass cannon mage type build with 60 INT or FAITH. <br/>It will hit an AR of 450+ when buffed and the battle art hits hard, managed to get 1000+ damage out of it around lvl 99. <br/><br/>When you want a rapier, use this one or the regular rapier.. I'm not an Estoc hater ( Straight Swords are the evil in this game imo )<br/>but you'll feel just better using this against people..

              • Simple infusion23 Jul 2016 15:39  

                I'm surprised how good simple infusion is with this weapon. Sure, the weapon art is better if you can buff weapons and simple infusion takes that out but its still a very good option for a pure caster build. 20 dex isnt that high of a req, deals minmal damage diference with cristal or any other infusion that puts elemental damage and restores skillpoints with a weapon that you want to use it. Can't be buffed but that leaves open more slots for spells for a caster.

                • Weapon Art14 Jul 2016 00:41  

                  With the pontiffs right eye and lightning blade on a quality build and 60 faith it makes everyone onehit.<br/><br/>Highest dmg was 1600 dmg in the whole combo.<br/><br/>Lg

                  • Devastating Counterattacks13 Jul 2016 22:13  

                    The Lunge and Press with the Leo Ring is truly a crushing blow, given the follow-ups the Press brings. Mind your timing with countering, though. Shield of Want works best.<br/><br/>*Simple in sword and shield*

                    • Buff testing results05 Jun 2016 14:53  

                      I went ahead and tested the weapon skill of this move on a pyromancer against the drakeblood knight in Archdragon Peak:<br/><br/>Unbuffed at 221 AR: 176 total damage<br/>Chaos infused at 368 AR: 245 total damage<br/>Buffed at 402 AR: 457 total daamge<br/><br/>All other basic hits scaled as expected, with a smooth curve based on AR, but the weapon skill is indeed applying the buff AR multiple times for some pretty disgusting total damage. On less resistant enemies, it was easily hitting for 900+ per weapon skill use. I found that the same is true of Gotthard's weapon skill, which was 166/236/330 for the same tests at similar ARs, but its regular dual attacks (and roll dual attack) only benefited from the buff once.<br/><br/>Notably this isn't true for the regular Rapier, which had weapon skill damage results of 133/167/188, scaling smoothly with AR.

                      • Problem on upgrade table03 May 2016 00:42  

                        Looks like the auxiliary effect values for the blood and poison version of the weapon are in the wrong columns; Blood + 10 is showing its aux effect value in the poison column, and Poison + 10 is showing its aux effect value in the frost column. Fix pls?

                        • Nerfed?25 Apr 2016 20:21  

                          Unless i'm missing something, this thing got nerfed hard. <br/><br/>Buffed it, and used Carthus pyro to boost damage even more. It fails miserably. <br/>I even had it at +10... <br/><br/>Was really looking forward to repeat experiences from DS1. <br/>Guess i'll stick with my +10 WP.

                          • Buff testing18 Apr 2016 01:28  

                            So I tested out how the multi hit move of Ricard's (L2) applies buff damage.<br/><br/>I found that it applies the same damage to each hit of the multi hit move as it would to a single hit move (like DS1). Basically, Ricard's is really good at applying buff damage.<br/>

                            • why is this one of the game throwback weapons10 Apr 2016 12:53  

                              ricards rapier is basically like a easter egg item now with the face its main move in ds1 and ds2 is the focus skill of the rapier
