Notes[edit | edit source]
- Before Update 18.5, the Destreza was one of the few weapons capable of performing stealth attacks on MOAs and their variants, the others being nunchaku and blade-whips.
- Due to the innate ability to apply a slash proc on the first strike, in combination with the high critical chance and ability for a Blood Rush/ Body Count build, this weapon works very well with Relentless Combination.
Tips[edit | edit source]
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The rapier's name is derived from La Verdadera Destreza, an Iberian system of fencing, with the word "Destreza" itself being a latin word (literal in Spanish and Portuguese, "Destrezza" in Italian) meaning "dexterity", or "skill".
- The weapon's shape greatly resembles the letter "J" of the Orokin Language.
