Claws are one of the new types of weapons included in this expansion. You can use these in close combat, emphasizing quick attacks or short but very effective combos. You can obtain the Red Bear’s Claw by defeating the boss of the same name, situated in the Northern Nameless Mausoleum on a plateau northwest of Castle Ensis.

One of the main characteristics of this weapon, beyond its quick and consecutive attacks, is that it causes bleeding to the opponent. Somber Smithing Stones also serve as an upgrade for this weapon. To achieve optimal use of this weapon, it is recommended to have a class mainly focused on strength and dexterity.

4. Sword of Night

It’s one of the game’s fastest swords and best-looking weapons. It has an attack that deals multiple slashes simultaneously, causing significant damage. Also, part of the DLC, it can be found in the Cathedral of Manus Metyr. Once you complete the entire finger questline for Count Ymir, you will find Jolan in a dejected state nearby. Give her an Iris of Occultation to get the Sword of Night.

It is recommended to use this weapon for any build primarily focused on dexterity. One of the main characteristics of this katana is that it is practically unblockable, allowing several significant hits before the enemy can defend. The weapon has a charged attack that accumulates quickly and deals substantial damage in a non-corporeal strike.

3. Nanaya’s Torch
