Claws are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Claws are equipped on both hands and excel in fast, close-range combat. They are lightweight pieces that feature innate Bleed, and users usually wear them on Dexterity Builds.

Claws are compatible with a range of different Ashes of War, allowing you to mix and match for whatever your needs may be.

      I'd have liked to see an implementation of the deflect mechanic from sekiro, especially when considering how wonky enemy hitboxes can be and the inevitable issues that arise from it. Imo when 2h weapons, blocking at the correct time should do poise damage. You can even keep parry AoW viable by making the deflect do much less posture damage than a parry.
      In doing so, using block when 2h or running say a claw/fist build has a purpose and truly allows a different way of playing the game in an organic manner. Idk seems like a big missed opportunity to progress the combat system and hurts many styles of running the game.

        Just completed a claw run, and all I can say is the final boss can go die in a fire. I went out of my way to get the frenzy flame ending out of pure spite.

          Holy **** this bug on the 2h claws stopping you from running attacking after jumping makes going up divine tower in caelid cancer. You jump onto the platform with the torchpole guy and stare at him intently while he shoves you to your death

          • Anonymous

            Claws are such a fun weapon... on paper. In execution they made it nearly impossible to actually hit most enemies with their wacky hit boxes. In particular large enemies are horrible, you can be standing so close to them that it won't let you get any closer and attacks will still not connect with the edge of their hit box. Would LOVE for them to be worth using, but sadly unless you're willing to power through consistently whiffing attacks you should 100% be landing, you're better off using a different weapon type like power stancing curved swords

            • You can powerstance two different claws. That means a cold hookclaws in the left hand (bleed, frost) and a venomous fang buffed with rot grease in the right (poison, rot) lets you build up 4 status effects with a single attack if you want to make a "flashbang" build that makes people panic.

              • Anonymous

                Does royal knight resolve work the same on this running attack as on katar? Like does it do double damage? Also looks like the two handed R1 could do double the dmg as well

                • Anonymous

                  Nice invisible wall in front of me whenever I try to ****ing jump attack, especially at the front of big enemies.

                  • There seems to be a bug when "2-handing" fist or claw weapons, to where you can't sprint attack for some time after jumping/landing. It really hampers using jumping as a feint in pvp. If you power stance 2 different fist or claws the sprinting L1 will work even though its the exact same attack as the 2-handed sprinting R1. I hope this gets fixed like the rolling rapier bug, but with how rare fist/claw weapons seem to be used my hopes aren't high. Posting this in both pages for visibility

                    • Anonymous

                      Claws for the most part don't do anything special. They have innate bleed which is..
                      Okay. But they don't have poise damage, damage, ashes of war, or hell, any unique aspects that another class of weapon doesnt.

                      • Anonymous

                        Guys, fist weapons AREN`T claws. So please smack yourself on the head if you try to say something like: "errr actually there are more claws like the ceastus etc"

                        • Anonymous

                          Dual daggers are far faster than claws in terms of attack speed. In a claw vs dagger duel with no poise on either side, claw player must outspace the dagger player to get an attack off.

                          • Anonymous

                            Kinda dissapointed that there is no Beast-Claw type weapon like the one in Bloodborne , considering how much beasts play a role in the game and its lore it would only be fitting...

                            Oh well still made a working beast build with the Incantations, the Clawmark Seal, the Cinquedea and the Beastclaw Greathammer

                                    Several weapons are missing from this list - Spiked Caestus, the Skeleton Arm thing that has the lifesteal Skill, the incantation fists you can find in the roundtable behind the stonesword key doors, and the Katar.

                                    I can't remember where I've found all of these things off the top of my head, but that's literally double the options presented so far.

                                      I am suprised at the lack of claw weapons. They are a pretty cool item, but only 4 that i have found? Not even special versions, not one of the claw weapons use Somber meaning none of them are rare or legendary weapons. Rather sad.

                                        Your missing the prosthetic and the claw weapon you get in the roundtable. There's also a Caestus somewhere too

                                          It appears that casting Scholar's Armament on the claw then switching to two-handed (putting a claw on each hand) doubles the damage bonus from the spell. Can someone else confirm this?

                                                  Raptor Talons in the sage’s cave which is accessible after defeating Makar. The place is full of illusory walls and behind one of them-specifically a wall that a skeleton is facing-you’ll find two chests with one containing the talons.

                                                      I generally love claws especially with Bloodborne beast claw build. I really hope this isn’t the only claw in the whole game.
