    Rapier, Ricard's or Estoc?

    Post by Dj-B-Man-Jr on Sun Mar 04, 2012 2:43 pm

    I used to hate anything with a thrust attack...until i tried the rapier, but its damage is pretty low even with leo ring counters. I am loving the ripostes though. would switching to an estoc or ricards be a better decision? I'm a full dex build, no int & minimal faith.

    Ricard's has an A dex scale at high upgrades.

    for ripostes and backstabs the rapier is the best weapon, overall estoc is the best, a little lower damge in terms of riposte and bs than the rapier but better move set.

    just checked, Rapier and ricard's both have the same AR at +15 & 45 dex, and i prefer the R2 of the rapier, just need to upgrade my estoc and see how that compares

    The estoc will have a B rating in dex, I believe.

    Thrusting weapons are definitely underrated in PvP. They really take advantage of lag. Their thrusts are so fast, especially those attacks that have lunging thrusts, that they're practically impossible to dodge due to lag. I get hit by those things when they're nowhere near me--it's very annoying. I suppose against enemies wielding a shield they're probably less effective, but against dual-wielders or 2-handers they're a great choice.

    With that Dex scaling, too, I'd recommend one you can buff.
