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

In-Game Description

A symbolic, powerful thrusting sword used by the pardoner serving Velka, Goddess of Sin.
It is no mere symbol to be sure; the pardoner is an inhuman swordsman, and wields this enchanted blade with special sword technique.


Found on a corpse in the Annex of the Painted World of Ariamis.


Unlike the other rapiers, Velka's Rapier can only be upgraded with Twinkling Titanite down the regular path. It deals Magic Damage with an Occult modifier, and cannot be augmented. Unlike other weapons upgraded down the Occult path, Velka's Rapier scales with Intelligence rather than Faith.

Like the Estoc, Velka's Rapier features slashing attacks (although it does not deal Slash Damage, but instead Regular Damage), making it more flexible to use than some other thrusting swords. Velka's Rapier scales well with Intelligence as well as Dexterity.

  • Velka's Rapier is a reference to Superhero 'V'. 'V' is known for fighting with a similar sword, and was an accomplished fencer. He'll often cut in the shape of the letter 'V', known as a coupe in foil fencing, which looks identical to the riposte, one-handed strong attack, and two-handed strong attack of Velka's Rapier.[citation needed]


Requires: Twinkling Titanite and 2,000 souls per upgrade.
