    Ricard's Rapier or Regular Rapier? Empty Ricard's Rapier or Regular Rapier?

    Which of the above weapons is the better choice when it comes to elemental upgrades and PVP.

    Normally I would think Regular Rapier because it does slightly higher damage when upgraded with fire or lightning, not to mention you get that sweet sweet 10% backstab bonus.

    However, I think Ricard's has the overall better moveset.

    What's the communities take?

    Regular, Ricard's is WAY better. Elemental? I have no clue. And that's the extent of my knowledge on the subject. Personally, I dislike both hahaha! But I believe someone else can answer your question more thoroughly.

    Yeah, I love the R2 attack for Ricard's probably one of the most badass ways to end a fight in the game.

    I thought it was AWESOME, but it just didn't do the damage I was hoping. No buff, 40 dex, eehhh. Only did a max of like 400. And it took the same amount of time as a normal attack from my +10 fire halberd, and that thing does 600's or something something something.

    PS: Ricard's Rapier was +15.

    Ricards has a better moveset, and I'm pretty sure the crit modifier is same as the estoc, it says only 100 but does more.

    Ricards with leo ring... Parry then R2 combo kills almost anything - or with Leo ring and HR equipped use a BSS - do the R2 attack as soon as you parry then click r1 - you get an equivalent of a riposte combo xD because the R2 chains into the riposte - it has OHKO'd all people I have done it to big grin

    I've used a fire ricard's before and while it wasn't incredibly powerful, I'd definitely use it over the regular rapier just for the R2 attack. It can be a very deadly combo if you perform it correctly twisted

    You can't use Ricard's, unless you kill the Bridge Wyvern with it.

    New rule.

    Steel Ring of Protection states that the wearer of the Ring was famous for killing a Large Drake with armed combat. He also holds a rapier as well.

    If you can kill the Drake with the Rapier, you can use the Rapier.

    Again, New Rule.

    For regular, probably the standard rapier but for elemental, definitely Ricard's, I mean, that R2 is absolutely devastating.
