These claws are the hardest weapon to make in the game. It takes 50 zeal, 20 star metal, 5 shadebloom, and 4 shaped wood to make. They give you a powerful moveset, but they’re severely lacking when it comes to cost vs reward.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying they should be the best weapon in the game. But right now, they have too many problems to be worthwhile, such as:
-Low damage. Only 51 damage and 9% armor pen.
-Can’t mod. So you’re stuck with the low damage.
-No hyperarmor. Just spam r2 if anyone pulls the claws out.
-Restricted to 10 minutes of use. They expire faster than a torch.
Considering how hard they are to make, it’s stupid that they have this many weaknesses.
