Bestial Incantations

Clawmark Seal is a Sacred Seal in Elden Ring. The Clawmark Seal is a Weapon for characters that wish to use beast Incantations without investing in faith.

Clawmark Seal can be used to cast certain spells that need to be memorized first. This Seal is much less visible than the staff, so someone could perform a surprise magic attack while fighting against enemy players. Sacred invocations must be memorized first at a site of lost grace, and a sacred seal must be equipped to cast them.

 

A sacred seal given by Gurranq, the Beast
Clergyman. A rare trinket which allows incantations to be scaled with strength. 

The claw mark represents Gurranq's wrath. Enhances bestial incantations learned from Gurranq.

Elden Ring Clawmark Seal Notes & Tips

  • Skill: None
  • This weapon cannot be buffed with Ashes of War.
  • Clawmark Seal is upgraded with Smithing Stones.
  • Buffs the damage of all Bestial Incantations by 10%, stacking multiplicatively with Cinquedea.
    • Note that if you are trying to purely maximize damage of Bestial Incantations, you will see better results by using the Erdtree Seal at high faith levels, in conjunction with either Cinquedea or an offhand Clawmark seal, since the spellbuff of the Erdtree Seal is so much higher that it more than makes up for the additional 10% bonus.
    • Clawmark seal really shines when used on high-Str characters who want a ranged/fast attack option, but don't want to invest heavily in another stat.
  • Incantations cast with this seal also scale with strength; two-handing this seal will further increase incant scaling due to the 50% effective strength bonus. This extra scaling is not shown in the inventory.
  • At +10, with 45 Faith and 45 Strength the incant scaling softcaps at 280. Increasing either Faith or Strength up to 99 gives a poor 30 scaling per stat for a 340 Incant Scaling hardcap. Due to strength receiving a 50% bonus two-handing the softcap can be attained at just 30 strength and 45 faith by two-handing this seal.
  • Only Faith applies to offensive buff Incantation scaling, making this Seal a bad choice for those using such spells (Bloodflame Blade, Electrify Armament, Black Flame Blade, etc)
  • Bestial incantations include Stone of Gurranq, Gurranq's Beast Claw, Beast Claw, and Bestial Sling.
  • Viable spellcasting for a Strength Build with barely any investment into int, fth, arc. Great for evening the playing field against actual spellcasters. Pocket sand will never let you down. (Can also use other low requirement non-bestial incants like catch flame to decent effect)
  • It is wielded, but not dropped, by Azula Beastman Mages, to cast red lightning Incantations.
  • Sell Value: runes currency elden ring wiki guide 18100

      I found with a tarnished that has 25 strength and 35 faith that using a weapon buff with the clawmark(CM) and godslayer (GS) seals that GS out buffs CM by a whopping 6 points.
      TL:DR is that the seals are all comparable when using buffs so don't worry if your using a dual stat scaling seal

        I think you guys should put the upgrades list before the yt videos for all weapons. Imo people are here to see that more than some random yt videos

          The perfect tool for STR primary builds that want to dabble into faith.

          At 80 strength, this seal remains the strongest up to 70 faith.
          At 55 strength it remains the best up to 62 faith.

          With 80 STR and 30 faith you get 275 incant scaling. For a pure faith build you need 55 faith with godslayer seal to reach the same incant scaling.
          With 275 incant scaling. lighting spear deals around 600 damage, which is bonkers for an unga bunga build that just wants to have some buffs.

            If this seal was stronger it would be broken.
            At 45/45 +25 its incant scaling is 80% of the erdtree seal with 80 fth (same stat investment). If you use the cinquadea in your other hand, the stacking bonus will make your bestial incants hit as hard as they would on a pure faith build. But you still have 45 stength, which becomes 55 with the +10 strength tear, which becomes over 80 if you two-hand your weapon. So you can still hit almost as hard as a pure strength build if you two-hand while having the option of decent spellcasting if you one-hand.

            • Anonymous

              This thing may be better than nothing for pure strength builds, but probably not by a lot. I think one of the problems is that since it uses normal smithing stones, it's always going to be behind in upgrades compared to your other stuff, and combined with the lacklustre scaling, the damage you end up getting is really not much, and then you run out of FP and it's useless. Maybe at the end of the game if you get it to +25 and two-hand it, it might end up being okay, but I ditched it long before that point and just used a bow instead.

              • Anonymous

                Unfortunately, now that faith builds have been reduced to melee with buffs, there is no longer any reason to use this because of the scaling issues.

                Rest in peace my pre-1.5 clawmark combos, it was fun while it lasted.

                • Anonymous

                  I wish this upgraded with somber stones. My fire build is more of a farmer build with how hard it is to maintain this + a weapon that can take flame strike

                    While the Seal alone is pretty weak when using other incants besides Bestial ones, you should also note that Bestial Incants deal physical damage and you can increase the damage of those incants by using the Blue Dancer Charm and when compared to other damage increasing talismans, like Scorpion charms, you dont run the risk of increase damage taken. However, you do have to risk either running naked or on the lowest possible weight load so you can maximize on your damage. So you can effectively run Blue Dancer Charm, Flock Canvas Talisman, Clawmark Seal and Cinquedea with a weight of 6.9, add a few gear that doesn't reach 8 weight load, to maximize to the damage bonus that BDC gives, so if you are looking to do a naked Bestial Incant only run this is your best setup you can achieve.

                      Quick question for someone who knows more about the game than me: I'm doing a STR/FTH build (60 STR, 40 FTH) with Aspect of the Crucible Incantations and some other general purpose ones. From what I understand, this is the best Seal to use for my build with my current stats + leveling up FTH past 45 yields diminishing returns due to the softcap. Am I correct, or should I be doing something different to get the most damage out of my Incantations?

                          This thing should really soft cap at 40/40 like everything else. The investment is already very high, trying to do a 125 meta level build is pretty stat hungry considering the whole point of str is to be able to use the chunky weapons which requires more of an investment in endurance. On the upside you will do more melee damage, but as melee is sort of underpowered anyway this could really use a balance check. Not to mention it doesn't scale weapon buffs with the actual incant scaling just fth. Str/fth is already a pretty limited build, why does this seal require so many stat pts to be less effective than other seals? For pvp anyways. Combine this with the fact thr FP talisman is actually useless you can't even really get away with shaving pts off mind to bump up your scaling and stay a solid caster. So basically dual stat scaling builds are underpowered at 125 which they really should not be, vigor is a must, using radagons soreseal makes you extremely squishy. Don't get me started on dark magic builds that whole aspect is completely neglected and unfinished. Why is there only 1 weapon in the entire game that scales with int/fth? Kinda blows my mind how we have less build variety than in DS3.

                            I plan on making a bestial warrior build using 60 str and 15 fth for all the beast incantations, will lthat he viable with this seal?

                            • Anonymous

                              This is probably a dumb question, but if I have 80 STR/30 FTH and cast both Golden Vow and Flame, Grant Me Strength, will the 15% and 20% (respectively) buffs be increased, or will they stay at 15% and 20% regardless of stats/seals?

                              • Viable spellcasting for a strength build with barely any investment into int, fth, arc. Great for evening the playing field against actual spellcasters.

                                  With both strength and faith cranked high enough on this, would Clawmark potentially outpace a high-faith Eritrea seal? (I'm still a bit confused when interpreting the "scaling" column of the upgrade table)

                                    At 80 Strength and 15 Faith is it pointless using this seal for weapon buff incantations like Electrify Armament? Seems like it doesn't do much extra damage and I'm wasting FP.

                                      I swear that I'm drawn to these odd scaling spell casting tools, in Dark Souls 1 it was the Tin Darkmoon Catalyst (which is now my favorite spell casting tool in that game), in Dark Souls 3 it's the Golden Ritual Spear for it's seemingly good synergy with Farron Flashsword. Now there's this, while this caught me completely off-guard when reading the description for the very first time, looking at it now I see a ton of potential, at the minimum of 15 Faith for all of the Bestial Incantations you also get:
                                      1. Flame, Grant Me Strength!
                                      2. Rejection
                                      3. Poison Mist
                                      4. All Elemental Fortification spells
                                      5. Flame, Clense Me!
                                      6. Pest Threads
                                      7. Flame Sling
                                      8. Assassin's Approach
                                      9. Catch Flame
                                      10. Whirl, O Flame!
                                      11. Surge, O Flame!

                                      Now if you go to 20 Faith you also get:
                                      1. Lightning Spear
                                      2. Black Flame
                                      3. The Flame of Frenzy
                                      4. O, Flame!
                                      It may not be a lot but it grants you some Lightning damage and the Black Flame's DoT effect, plus this gives a mostly melee build access to a number of ranged offensive options for less weight than a Bow of some kind and freeing up the Ash of War slot on your weapons. I would have never come up with this idea myself, whoever came up with this was a genius.

                                        There seems to be a cap on two handing incant scaling. Been testing magic on the Omen (unaware) right outside the grace room (Underground Roadside), maxed out on the relevant stats (str+fth) and Stone of Gurranq does 887 damage both one hand and two hand.

                                          As of now it is really good for giving mostly strength builds some extra options, but not good for anyone with middling or more faith investment. It's just ok I wouldn't mind seeing a small incant scaling buff for it.

                                                Remember to equip this in your left hand, so that you're forced to two-hand it while on horse. Doing so will apply the +50% dmg. This does not happen if it's kn the right hand.

                                                  I upgraded the seal from +6 to +7 and the damage with the lighting bolt is now less then before. Seems something is wrong with the scaling since it has C stat scale after the upgrade. On +6 i killed low lvl sheeps with 478 dmg and now on +7 only with 358 dmg.

                                                    +6 with 142 Inc scale and D stat scale 487 damage on a sheep with lightning bolt

                                                    i did not change anything only upgrading the seal, any ideas why?

                                                      Is it possible to make this seal work with just 60 Strength alone? Hard-pressed for stats as a 125 and I’m wondering if I could alter my build to fit using Bestial incantations too.

                                                      • Anonymous

                                                        So, I did some calculations on this and the clawmark seal's Strength and Faith scaling appear to be exactly equal, until the Faith softcaps at 45. In other words, to get the most out of this seal you will want to 2-hand the seal and distribute your strength and faith in a 2:3 ratio, until you reach 30 Strength / 45 Faith. (for one-handing, obviously the ratio is 1:1 until 45 Strength/45 Faith)

                                                        If you have more stats to pump into this setup, every further point should go into Strength for maximum gains. Strength will give more benefit than Faith all the way to 99 Strength/45 Faith.

                                                        Str/Fai => Incant scaling (1-handed / 2-handed):
                                                        30/45 => 256.0 / 280.0
                                                        45/45 => 280.0 / 292.2
                                                        54/45 => 285.0 / 300.0
                                                        66/45 => 291.7 / 310.0
                                                        80/45 => 299.4 / 321.7
                                                        99/45 => 310.0 / 337.2

                                                        Depending on your level and build, 30/45 and 54/45 are likely to be the most optimal choices.

                                                          If going as a strength and faith build, carrying two seals around (while slightly annoying) would be optimal. Put clawmark in your right hand (for offensive spells), and a different seal in your left with better faith scaling for buffs to apply on your right-handed weapon. An even stat spread of 45/45 is your best option for clawmark as well, totaling 280 incantation scaling at +25. Everyone hating on this seal is trying to use it for everything, which is very suboptimal. Buffs/healing only scale from faith, and this seal caps out at B scaling. Use literally anything else with an S scaling for buffs/healing, and enjoy the "best" of both worlds.

                                                            The only way this thing is worth using is with high str and low(ish) to middling fth. In any other reasonable scenario you're better off casting with another seal and just using this as a passive boost for beast spells in your offhand.

                                                            For example at 60str and 30fth, this is the best Sacred Seal with 264 incant scaling. For reference, the Dragon Communion Seal sits at 266 incant scaling with the same 30fth and only 29arc. Yes you can twohand the Clawmark Seal for a bit more power but that doesn't change the fact that it requires quite a lot more investment for little benefit.

                                                            What it boils down to is this:

                                                            Use the Clawmark Seal if you're running a str character that also dabbles into fth a bit. Like, enough fth for access to the good buffs (30 to 45 at most) and only the occasional offensive incantation.

                                                              Strength/Faith has always been a combo we've wanted to make work, but has always been iffy due to which stat to prioritize, your faith for your spells or your strength for your melee. They've made weapons with faith scaling in the past, but now we finally have the reverse: a casting tool with strength scaling. No longer must you level faith first to empower your lightning, you may opt to increase your strength to meet requirements for bigger weapons and still be gaining casting power.

                                                                Since golden vow and fire grant me strength are flat effects and this seal doesn’t strength scale weapon buffs, when would a strength character actually make good use of this? I don’t get it.

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  At lower levels and lower upgrade this seems to be the best Seal around (I'm around level 50, with around 25 both Faith and Strength, and +6 Seals)

                                                                  • Anonymous

I' only have enough mind for one breath, but I think using flame give me strength and fire bonk with very occasional dragon spell might be fun, if not optimal. Also catch flame chain casted into theodorixs magma is just so nice, sometimes it glitches out, just wave your hand slap a magma ball into reality.

                                                                    • Anonymous

And grasping it with both hands for more power just heightens the resemblence. But this might just be my silly opinion.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          With certain classes, you can pretty much just put 1 point into faith and you will have all bestial incantations available.

                                                                          • Anonymous

If your strength and faith are equal then faith-scaling seals will provide higher incant scaling than the Clawmark Seal can.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                At +25, 60 Faith & 40 Strength it beats Erdtree seal +10 by a very small margin (Incant scaling 280 v 275) at around 63 faith erdtree seal starts winning again

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  So I tested some things regarding the issue with scaling on weapon buffs (I used bloodflame blade specifically)
                                                                                  Before I begin my stats for str and fth are 35 each. Testing was done on a Heavy Great Stars +18.

                                                                                  With Godslayer's seal +18, I get 187 incant scaling. With clawmark seal +15 I get 208 incant scaling. This increase in incant scaling does indeed take affect on anything other than weapon buffs. However with weapon buffs I can defiantly say that str has no effect. With the godslayer's seal, it added +75 fire damage, with clawmark it added +61. I even respeced my character with 12 str and it had no effect on this damage. Out of curiosity, I decided to get my clawmark to +18 and see what the increase in fire damage was, and it turned out to be +64. So, with claw mark seal compared to godslayer's seal, you're loosing about 11 fire AR at +18. I don't know how big the gap will be when they are both at +25.

                                                                                  As a side note, I'd also like to say that after upgrading the claw mark to +18, the incant scaling went up to 220 with the original stats. I'm curious if you all think the trade off is worth it for str/fth builds. Obviously this isn't going to be viable for weapon buffs if you are doing a pure str build, only putting enough points into faith to use the spells you want, but what about str/fth? Is the loss of damage to weapon buffs worth the increased damage to everything else.

                                                                                  Also, it should be noted that you can always use both the claw mark and another seal to get the best of both worlds, but that could get cumbersome to keep track of.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

Bestial Vitality's description specifically says it does not. Pretty sure the latter is true, though- as far as I can tell the health regen incantations are just flat amounts of healing that aren't impacted by anything as long as you have the stats to cast them.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

For comparison, at 40 Str and 40 Fth, it has 264 Scaling, which just shows that ooga booga guys can easily use that thing without much investment in Faith.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

Conflicting info on whether it holds up on a strength/faith build. It is only for offensive spells? Buffs? Always bad? What about during leveling? It has high incant scaling stat with where I'm at but a lot of places say it's garbage. Ha, it's like the game creators make things cryptic on purpose!

                                                                                        • Anonymous

This charm here is no exception, which is why crutching only on strenght is not going to produce good numbers on it.

                                                                                            I am currently rocking 54 str 47 fth and I get 286 incant scaling. While I wish that it would scale as well as the dragon communion seal, it is really the best option strength faith builds still before breaking into post 60 for faith.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

I think they should make it’s str/fth scaling at +25 A/B or S/C to better reward the investment in strength and cash in on its utility two-handed. Kinda like the dragon communion seal is B/S fth/arc at +10. Either way, I feel this talisman just needs to reward the strength aspect that makes it unique more.

                                                                                                I've just reached 40 strength and 40 faith and did one more final round of testing between the clawmark, godslayer and giants seal's (all at +25), using every type of offensive incantation and the clawmark seal would win every single time, even when casting spells that we're supposedly more favourable on other seals.

                                                                                                So just gonna say if you're doing a strength/faith build this talisman will be your highest priority for offensive incantations.

I didn't test it to prove this wrong or right, I just wanted to see if I should keep leveling faith, so I'll double check tonight to make sure my findings are accurate.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

Disappointing as I wanted to run a str/faith build. Beast eye showed up however, would've much preferred for that to have bugged out over the seal.

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

Daggers have always been pretty lackluster, and while the Cinquedea has been serviceable, any other str weapon would probably be much more useful, and even with the combined beast incant buffs from this seal and the dagger, bestial sling still does less damage than catch flame while taking double the casting time, and in the time it takes to cast 1 beast claw you can cast 2-3 catch flames to almost triple the damage, and all of this is while also stacking as much free strength buffs from talismans and the physick as I could.

                                                                                                          As for the seal itself, it doesn't actually scale that well with str, definitely still prioritizes faith, and if you break 30 faith the godslayer is probably just flat out better still until you hit 50-60 str. Essentially only good if you put basically no points into faith.

                                                                                                          • THE best seal in my opinion. If you're not a pure faith caster then you gotta level STR or DEX and when you choose STR this seal is taking the lead by a mile.

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

Black flame spells are grouped with the bestial incantations, leaving me to wonder if this boosts black flame spells too?

                                                                                                              Also I found one "bestial nnn" spell from a scarab, so there seem to be other spells too than only the ones from Gurrang.

                                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                                so I'm very stupid and want to clarify; does it split scaling between faith and strength, or is it literally just strength? Like, if i was using this, would there be any reason to level faith beyond the requirement for certain incantations?

                                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                                    Now excuse me while i go cry that the dragon communion seal needs arcane.

                                                                                                                      • Anonymous

Somewhere between +10 and+12 (I was spamming upgrade so didn't notice til I stopped), Strength and Faith Scaling actually upgrade from D to C. At +12, Incant scaling is 209. Absolutely insane.

                                                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                                                            So,
                                                                                                                            I am level 44 with 30str and 15fth: Urgent Heal with Clawmark Seal +3 heal 120hp /// The Finger Seal +0 heal 130hp

                                                                                                                            I test Bestial Sling with both on one group of zombies, it's a bit hard to compare with numbers but
                                                                                                                            cleary I could kill them with my Clawmark Seal +3 pretty easely and still have half my mana.
                                                                                                                            with The Finger Seal +0 I need to drink one flash to finish them off.

                                                                                                                            It's a bit obvious I know but I just want to point that Clawmark Seal is really not for anything else than beastly thingy. It's like it don't even take faith bonus for some heal and strengh add absolutly nothing to them.

                                                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                                                                • Anonymous

Am I doing something wrong or do I actually need faith alongside strength?
