The Claws are a claw in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A Weapon that attaches to the hands.
The wearer attacks in a scratching motion with these three-pronged claws. Claws inflict deep wounds and cause deep bleeding.


Can be purchased from Laddersmith Gilligan for 1,500 souls.


Although the description states the user attacks with a scratching motion, it uses the standard fist moveset.

When fully reinforced and infused with Bleed, the Claws can easily bleed most opponents. The high bleed build-up can be further augmented by the Crest of Blood as well as the Shadow Gauntlets. When power-stanced, these weapons inflict a high amount of bleed very quickly due to their attack speed.
