Ricard's Rapier is a thrusting sword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

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.

AvailabilityEdit

Dropped by the Rapier Champion the first time he is summoned and defeated by the player in Archdragon Peak, before reaching the Great Belfry.

CharacteristicsEdit

Ricard's Rapier has the same moveset as the standard Rapier, but what makes this weapon unique is its weapon art. The weapon art starts off with a stance, then the player executes several pokes before ending it with a stronger thrust. Before the finishing attack, performing a strong attack will follow up the weapon art with a few more pokes before ending it with the thrust. Due to it being a thrusting weapon, Ricard's Rapier can benefit from the Leo Ring.
