    Rapiers...

    Post by CaptanSpudsy on Sat Jun 16, 2012 11:46 am

    Why is it that 90% of the time, people who use rapiers just use them for BSing and/or riposting? In my mind, the rapiers are the most versatile of swords: you can go all out with them, turtle people who have Greatswords, kite the people who are slow or even fast, and the high crit damage is just a bonus.
    My +15 Estoc shreds almost all of the people I invade.
    Am I the only one who thinks that rapiers can be used for more than criticals?

    Depends.

    When you see someone using ricards, they probably will buff it. When you see an estoc, they probably will turtle and when you see a standard RAPIER, 90% will fish for a backstab

    the only good players with rapiers out there are mostly those who use Velka's

    ^I fought a really good bs fisher using Velka's in the forest maybe last night or two nights ago. I mean, I usually look down on those people, but this guy was a master of backstabbing. I literally couldn't do anything against him.

    I don't see why anyone would turtle with a rapier. It works at low levels, but if I'm going to turtle I want a nice long spear that puts me out of Dead Angle range. I also meet some people who like parrying and carry a rapier for the crit damage.

    I wouldn't turtle with a rapier, possibly only the Estoc and even then I find it to be a questionable strategy. If I want to hide behind a shield I'd rather a spear any day of the week.

    I know what you're talking about. Usually i hate backstab fishers, but sometimes I encounter players that are so extremely good at it that i don't even want to hate them. It does take skill to master the different bs techniques and know when to use them.

    But then, there are these guys:

    This fight was kinda funny actually. He fished, I mashed, he fished and in the end he died big grin I don't understand... You should always have a plan b. You know, if your buff runs out or if your opponent knows how to fight against backstabbing etc.

    I use a backup rapier whenever a greatsword does not work... they mesh very very nicely covering most bases.
    If he has a spear get out a rapier.
    If he is dodging constantly. get out a rapier.
    If they are making a run for it whenthey are one hit from death. get out a rapier.
    you get the idea silly

    also spudsy I linked you before not sure if your interested or not but you should totally join the darkstalkers lol! every time I see your pic...

    Hey, i think I duelled you a couple times recently. I was using the balder sword, wearing light armour with wolf ring. YOu beat me first time and I beat you the second time despite missing a riposte after a parry.

    You could go CMW but greater magic barrier would be soul crushing then.
    Buff's are a very good idea in PvP (and they tear bosses to shreds! :O )

    MY RAPIER IS THE RAPIER THAT WILL PIERCE THE HEAVEEEEENNSSS!!!!!!!!!!!
    All jokes aside, it's probably because it's relatively weak without a buff or if it's elemental.

    My current build uses velkas and the butterfly horn, I win about 85% of my fights. I love rapiers.

    People always send me hate mail on my lvl 65 d!ckwraith build in anor londo. My main weapon is a +5 light rapier and I use it almost exclusively for backstabing/parrying. Rapiers have a higher critical, they are made to do more damage when you land a bs/parry. With my pokes I do about 150ish damage average, hornet bs, 1200 dmg. Burn me at the stake for being a backstaber on this build but if I wanted to poke people to death I would use a spear. Better dmg and way better range.

    I love going up against the dark anor londo gankers with my rapier and hornets. Nothing sweeter then seeing the host run with his tail tucked after I one shot his two phantoms.
