As a sword nerd, It annoys me that you can’t cut with this but you can with the estoc. Most rapiers, while not the best at it, do have sharpened blades capable of cutting. Estocs are, by definition, edgeless. It’s literally the opposite of Dark Souls and Elden Ring.

Also the whole bastard sword vs longsword thing (which many games get wrong, admittedly). A bastard sword is typically shorter than a longsword, being named such because it can be wielded one- or two-handed, while a longsword is typically only wielded with both hands.

Can you back this up with some stats please? Because according to the tables on here, they have the same scaling but the Rapier is slightly superior in attack power (and then on top of that has a much better crit stat as well). I feel like the main benefit of Rogier's Rapier is it is free, and has a head-start on the upgrades. Happy to be proven wrong though.
