Beast Claw

Beast Claw

In-Game Description

Beastly weapon wielded by Irreverent Izzy.

Crafted by chiseling the long bones of an undead darkbeast
and fastening them to the weapon. The bones are still alive,
and when unleashed, grant its wielder a spurt beastly
power.

As flesh is flayed and blood is sprayed, the beast within
awakens, and in time, the wielder of this weapon surges with
both strength and feverish reverie.

Availability

Basic

Notes

  • Cannot use any Left Hand Weapons while the weapon is transformed. Instead, pressing L2 will use an attack that's available only while the weapon is transformed.
  • Transforming the claw will put you into the Beasthood state, the same as as consuming a Beast Blood Pellet except without the 60 second duration, indicated by the light brown smoke effect coming off your character. This effect lasts until the weapon is transformed back or switched out.
  • If you change the Beast Claw back with L1 or switch to a different weapon, the Beasthood meter and any Beasthood you've accumulated to that point will remain, but you'll no longer be able to build it up until you change the Beast Claw back or use a Beast Blood Pellet. The meter will constantly deplete until then, and you'll benefit from whatever damage boosts and defense drops you'd normally get until it runs out. This can be used to transfer your Beasthood bonuses to another, stronger weapon, like Ludwig's Holy Blade or the Kirkhammer.
    • Every physical attack made while the weapon is transformed will fill your Beasthood gauge by a little bit, which increases the physical damage you deal with each attack but also increases the damage you take by an equal amount.
    • Using Strong attacks (R2 and L2) will fill the meter faster than light attacks (R1).
  • You can use a Beast Blood Pellet with a transformed Beast Claw but it grants no additional benefit and actually resets your Beasthood meter to zero when it wears off.
  • It doesn't have a transforming attack from 1 claw to 2 claws.
