Desired for their power, agility and ease of maneuverability, these one-handed dueling weapons will allow you to attack quickly and accurately. If you’re new to the game, know that there are there are also Legendary Swords to obtain, but they are not rapiers. The Legendary Swords and Legendary Rapiers are two different types of weapons to seek. The rapiers are wielded using one hand, have short cool downs so can deal a goodly amount of damage to an opponent Rapiers scale with the two attributes Dexterity and Intelligence It’s recommended that you put your points into Dexterity Rapiers are built for dealing fast damage during close encounter battles. As such, it’s good to have another weapon to even it out. IGN states to use a “Healing weapon or Heavy Hitter”. They further suggest that the best weapons to use with Legendary Rapiers are the Life Staff and Fire Staff.

Rapier Builds

The type of rapier alone does not determine the best rapier for you. It’s the build that you choose that reflects that. When you build the rapier, you’ll be considering the Blood skill tree and the Grace skill tree, which are known as Weapon Mastery Trees. The Blood skill tree concentrates in dishing out damage using the Rend, Bleed and thrust attacks. Whereas the Grace skill tree centers on agility, baiting and counter moves. In summary, Blood is great for rapid damage to an enemy, while Grace works well when agility and maneuverability is needed. When you go to the trees for your build, know that you can only have three active skills at one time. According to IGN.com, the best choices in the Rapier Blood Tree are as follows:

  • For ability choose: Flurry, Overwhelm and Fleeting Strikes.
  • For Passives choose: Refreshing Strikes, Engarde, and Light Edge.
  • Next, move to the Grace Skill Tree and select from the following:
  • For Abilities choose: Evade, Breathe in, Allegro, Adagio, Crescendo, Fleche, Quick Lunge, Backside and Interruption.
  • For Passives it’s: Desperation, Perfectionist, Red Curtains, and Momentum

Accompanying Weapons

As previously stated, the rapier is a single-handed, dueling weapon. This means that to get the most out of your weapon, you should balance it out with a second weapon. Players prefer the Life Staff as it is used for health restoration. Another favorite is the Fire Staff. Only use the Fire Staff if you’re into self healing via potions.

Best Rapier Perks

The best perks for rapiers are:

  • Refreshing Fleche
  • Omnidirectional Evade
  • Leeching Flurry

In summary, these are opinions only. What combination works for you will be based on how you play. For instance, if you visit Youtube to find Blood and Grace tree combos, you’ll see different results than those presented here. In other words, some people may elect to choose the Life Staff to accompany their Legendary Rapier, while others might select a range weapon such as a musket. We encourage you to talk to other gamers, research and try different combos out for yourself to select the winning combination of abilities, accompanying weapons, and so on. After all, active choice and experimentation are a huge part of the overall gaming experience.
