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.
