To be true to the real thing, it's length being so long (and reach) is the main reason it was replaced by the rapier.It's difficulty to wield properly was the reason it was replaced by the rapier, that and the fact that a rapier could be used with a parrying dagger on the off hand, while an Estoc is historically a two handed weapon (though it wasn't uncommon for a user to hold with a single hand during some positions in fighting).As for in game: The reach difference is present but not perfect, no hitbox in the game is. The L2 and Kick attacks are where the weapon trumps rapiers, from my experience so far.

For those wondering where to get it for non assassins, you need to have sent Greirat to pillage once and he'll sell it once he returns. Same conditions as the Zwei basically.

I started with the Assassin class and completed the whole game just with this sword. It has a great dps, alot of staggering and doesn't care about walls in narrow corridors
