About Beast Claw and Where to Get It

Beast Claw

The Beast Claw weapon is the star of this build. It has extremely fast attacks, causing enemies to flinch repeatedly. This can prevent many enemies from attacking at all. For most enemies, uninterrupted attack patterns ensure they don't stand a chance. The weapon has native bleed buildup on hit. Using the Occult infusion boosts blood loss buildup.

Pair up Beast Claw with Beast Claw ash of war for multiple slashes in quick succession. 

You can get Beast Claw by defeating Logar the Beast Claw, found in the forest to the south of the Gravesite Plain.
