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

In-Game Description

A rapier with intricate decorations. Chosen weapon of the infamous Undead Prince Ricard. Ricard's exploits are told in a monomyth.
He was born into royalty, but wandered the lands in a fateful ill-conceived journey. He became Undead, and disappeared up North.

AvailabilityEdit

Dropped by Undead Prince Ricard on the high roof area of Sen's Fortress.

CharacteristicsEdit

Ricard's Rapier's strong attack deals several weak hits in very quick succession. This makes Ricard's Rapier one of the best, if not the best weapon for a weapon buff build (in PvE), as enchantments such as Darkmoon Blade and Crystal Magic Weapon add a fixed amount of damage to every hit.

Ricard's Rapier deals slightly inferior damage compared to the other thrusting swords.

Sneaking up on an enemy from behind and performing a kick may cause the player to deliver a backstab instead.
