    Not to fond of the faith one . But it is what it is. Claws are really good for baiting spells. Plus a lot of people will underestimate you because of dual claws. Don't expect any good damage from the enchanted/divine claws. I think a normal r1 does around 70-80 damage. So you will need a lot of counters and spell hits to keep up with a normal build.

    If you guys enjoy these I'll keep posting videos here.

    Good stuff. I'm usually not a fan of dead angle WOGs or wakeup GCs but agree claws don't do much damage so you do need to pick it up somewhere. As some of the vid comments suggested, I typically pair claws with the thorn gauntlets. The damage boost is nice, but the thorn effect also helps with BS cancels, and in stunlocking 0 poise mages (you get the thorn damage not just from your own rolls, but from the claw roll R1s, so you can just go in circles around them). Hidden weapon can also be a fun add to the mage builds, folks think you're goofing around unarmed, don't expect the extra roll attacks, etc.

    My one real gripe about claws is how slow the bleed buildup is, with 3 blades you'd think it'd be faster. They'd be much more viable if the bleed were a real threat. Honestly I'm not sure I've ever gotten it to trigger on anybody.

    I had bleed hit once when I was doing this but they roll canceled the bleed damage. I get what your saying about thorn and fist weapons but thorn gloves are not that great at poise to weight optimization so I just don't bother. I'm not a huge fan of thorns and bs cancel either. I hate getting the 0 damage bs on people that use thorns so I just don't use it myself anymore.

    Didn't watch the video but isn't the purpose of making a "_____ Build" to use _______ as your main form of attack? If you're using mostly spells then you're juts a caster who happens to be using claws.
