Acquired from:
  • In the Painted World of Ariamis, through the door requiring the Annex Key. After opening the door and ascending the first staircase, you will end up outside. Look for an "illusory wall" made of wooden planks. The rapier is behind this wall.

Upgrade cost: 2,000 Souls & Twinkling Titanite.

  • Velka's Rapier cannot be coated with any resin, nor buffed via magic weapon or similar spells.
  • The R2 Strong attack for this weapon is not a standard rapier thrust, the first R2 attack consists of two vertical slashes going up then down and the second consecutive R2 attack will be a normal thrust. Velka's Rapier's strong attacks also seem to use less stamina than other rapiers, especially the Estoc and Ricard's Rapier.
  • Like all piercing swords, Velka's Rapier replaces your kick with a back-stepping horizontal slash attack.
  • Velka's rapier has slightly shorter range than the Estoc. However, it does not seem to suffer any speed reduction that the Estoc does, making it a perfectly viable PvP option.
  • Its light weight and good intelligence scaling makes it a solid backup weapon for sorcerors, or a primary weapon for sorcerors who don't like the weapon buff spells.
