To craft, place a Tool Rod, Crossbar, and Sword Blade in the correct slots of the Rapier tab in the Tool Station or Tool Forge.

Tinkers Construct - Adding Modifications

Adding a ball off moss to the rapier, which makes it automatically repair over time(Faster in Sunlight)

If you add more than one of the same type of modifier it will use up the next modifier slot and will upgrade the tool/weapon further in that field. e.g. Adding more than the max amount of quartz for one modifier slot (72) it will use up another modifier slot but raise the max amount of quartz to 144.


Rapiers have a low durablity and will become "broken" after use and its also advised to use high durability materials for itself. When the rapier is broken the backpedal ability is still usable. The Rapier cannot be enchanted using the Enchanting Table usually, but one can give it blood attunement using an enchanted book to allow enchantment. It can be enchanted with soul tether through this method. It is not repairable at the Anvil or the Enchanting Table. They can however be modified and repaired at the Tool Station.

While we use godly giantswords, they kill our shock troopers with rapiers!
