The Claw is a gauntlet in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

A weapon formed by three sharped claws.
Attacks cause bleeding, and the wounds inflicted are not easily mended. Preferred weapon of the spooks of an Eastern land.

AvailabilityEdit

Sold by Shiva of the East for 5,000 souls.

CharacteristicsEdit

Claws deal poor damage and have a very short reach, in exchange for a faster than average attack speed. When they are compared to the Caestus, they have a few drawbacks, namely having half the Caestus's durability for double its weight, and a higher Dexterity requirement. However it more than makes up for this with a higher damage output and the additional bleed auxiliary effect.

TriviaEdit

  • When a roll and the claw's rolling attack are performed in the same direction, the Chosen Undead's movements look similar to and may be an homage to the Street Fighter character Vega's Rolling Crystal Flash, in which the claw-wielding Vega rolls into his opponent and then thrusts with his claw.
