    Velka's Rapier is better than the MLGS as a backup for a pure caster. Using a rapier is more conducive to low-poise, low-end play than the stamina-consuming MLGS. If you don't level End, you might only get 3 swings or less; that's not to mention how weak a squishy mage with no poise is trying to fight with a GS after his spells run out. If your opponent has a fast weapon, you will be interrupted. A lot. Heck, I wear a piece of thorn armor just so I can roll into 0 poise builds and interrupt their actions. The MLGS doesn't have pokes, or any close-combat moveset past the r1, which is rather short-ranged and predictable. You don't need stamina, however, to use a rapier properly. All you need is fast roll and maybe a shield.

    What soul level are you referring to with this?[/quote]
    My build was done around SL60-65, I don't exactly recall as I leveled him recently to help some new players in co-op. They were much higher SL than me.

    I'd like to add that Velka's Rapier also has stellar reach. It's not quite an Estoc, but the weapon itself is something like 20% longer than a regular Rapier.
