Thrusting Swords are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Thrusting Swords strike a balance between moderate damage, fast attacks, and good reach, while piercing and slashing Enemies.

Thrusting Swords can be modified by a number of Ashes of War to change their Skills or Damage Type, so play around with them and see what you like.

Thrusting Swords and Curved Swords have a built-in feint. Press dodge shortly after beginning the charge-up for a heavy attack, and another animation will happen. Some weapons (such as the Frozen Needle) shoot a projectile during this animation, allowing for additional methods of play.

      No idea why the lock on aims so low with attacks, feels like I have to manually aim when using any kind of thrust attack, which is kind of when lock on should be the most reliable

      • Anonymous

        ive always hated rapiers in fromsoft games but i came to love them in elden ring. they are incredibly fast, aggressive weapons. works so well with rotten wing sword insignia and the physick that boosts successive attacks. bonus points if you have poison/rot or bleed and the corresponding exultation talisman. dps can get kind of insane very fast

        • Anonymous

          How come the estoc's hitbox has less range than the Cleanrot Sword despite the model being longer? What is this logic, Miyazaki?

          • When Powerstancing two Rapiers, it seems that the L1 attack pattern is: L-R>R-R-R. I wonder if that means it will only apply the Passive Effects/Damage of the Right Weapon when doing the right attacks. This came up when I saw someone using Seppuku on their Left Rapier, but a different AOW on their Right Rapier. Will the Seppuku bleed apply to BOTH of the weapons when doing L1 attacks?

              Nobles estoc have been very generous when it comes to how well they scale and the reach on the nobles slender swords is amazing. Bleed or ice and 67 poise and Rivers/moonveil becomes obsolete.

              • Anonymous

                Damn these need a nerf and hitbox-fix, way to high damage and range, more range than the reach of the weapon model. Total bs for pvp, if you use this: i hope you get hurt.

                • Anonymous

                  Man, the powerstance on those is so beautiful. Although maybe I am biased, after all I used to do fencing. Still, one of the drippiest weapon classes IMO

                  • Anonymous

                    For powerstancing these i always run Rogiers in the main hand. The R2 of Rogiers is two quick stabs that comes out faster than a regular R1, and can be used at the end of any attack. A good example is a rolling powerstance L1 usually has a half second delay before you can attack again, but Rogiers R2 will activate immediately.

                    • Dual wielding thrusting swords gives you an amazing moveset that can constantly put pressure on opponents if you have the stamina for it.

                      Its a never ending shredfest.

                      Throw in status effects and you can go deep into the cancerous end, I personally avoid doing it since I’m wrecking opponents already with dual physical estocs.

                        Bug while powerstancing two thrusting swords, if you do the rolling attack and don't move after the roll, you will be unable to attack for about a whole second, but simply moving a little after the roll avoids this. Been happening on and off for my playthrough and finally pinned down what it was.

                          To be honest I would rather have a change some straight and great swords to pure dex/str and thrusting swords to int weapon instead

                            You can apply the Parry weapon art on rapiers but its just the hand parry animation instead of the rapier-twirl parry from the previous games

                            :(

                              Really wish there was more rapier with a moveset like the reiterpallasch or church pick, they are more than thrusting weapons or the fencing sword why hasn't the movesets been innovative yet

                                Why do all thrusting swords' regular attacks have regular damage type? Only spears and lances have pierce damage for all attacks

                                  i noticed that offhand thrusting swords are slightly faster than in your main hand, doesnt matter what thrusting sword too

                                    I powerstance the Antspur Rapier along with the Frozen Needle, and I gave the antspur rapier the poisonous mist ash of war but with a bleed infusion so now I can inflict, bleed, poison, scarlet rot and frostbite all at the same time with L1s and I even have a long range attack thanks to the frozen needle's special R2, on PVP people really get tilted (to say the least) when they see 4 status ailments being inflicted at the same time, I've even received my fair share of hate messages, still just wanted to share the build, it's fun for me and I now it will be for others too, just expect some insults to your dear mother now and then when using it.

                                      Is power stancing them slightly bugged for other people too?
                                      Roling L1 into L1 doesnt work at all for me. The character just doesnt respond until the animation has finished this slow floating back into default posture. 2 seconds lost.
                                      I thought it was a feature, but with other weapon classes it works just fine, as does roling L1 into any other action.

                                        I'm confused by the ratings for "best (weapon type)" I keep seeing. The Noble Estoc seems to have better scaling. Rogier's rapier has higher base damage, and similar scaling to Estoc. Somebody help me out? What makes Estoc #1 apart from nostalgia?

                                          Using this with the “Blood Tax” ash of war and Hoslow’s Set (minus the helmet) for my vampire noble RP build :D

                                            I found another rapier-like weapon. It's called "Great épée".
                                            I'm sorry but I don't know where I found it. May be a loot from a mob, but I don't recall enemies using rapiers. Maybe red-hooded guards from Stormveil ?
                                            I can tell it's def. in Limgrave or in Stormveil castle. Except for a couple of random teleports, I've never ventured out of the main area, I'm still lvl 27.
                                            I still cannot use it since my build is Dex/Int and it requires STR 15 [D]
                                            (I have STR 13, and growing it just to use this weapon) and DEX 16 [D]
                                            Impaling Thrust; 124 base dmg + 49 on my DEX 18
                                            My Estoc +4: 131 + 24
                                            All things considered, this looks just better on paper.
                                            I suppose we'll see.

                                              Why is Frozen Needle listed as best while Noble's Estoc has more dmg, same ash of war, easier upgrade (ordinary stones) and betted scaling?

                                              • Found the Bloody Helice thrusting sword. Its inside the chest past the boss room in the Writheblood Ruins. You can find this place by following the road after the Road of Iniquity Side Path site of grace. Its near the windmill village site of grace.

                                                • Didn't see it posted yet. Found a Noble's Estoc. Same move set as the estoc but appears slightly shorter. 3.5 weight. Req 9 str & 10 Dex. Says "Daubed with gold from tip to tail, it should fetch a good sum" I think it was a loot drop and not a designated pick up. Cheers!
