Crow Talons is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.  It is part of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC.


Talons used by Corvian Knights. Inflicts five perpendicular slashes, causing heavy bleeding.

In their infatuation with Sister Friede, the Corvian Knights swore to protect the painting from fire and to this end, too to the execution of their own brethren.

Skill: Raptor Flurry

Spread right and left talons like a broad set of wings and launch into a tornado of consecutive attacks.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforce with Titanite.
  • There is a glitch that can be used wherein the Crow Talons WA can prevent all fall damage, even if it would prove fatal with the Silvercat Ring equipped. 
  • Has 354 AR at 15/50 STR/DEX when Infused with Sharp.
  • When two-handing it has a unique L1/LB running and backstep attack.
  • Two Handing changes roll and R2/RB attacks.

      One of the best weapons in the Game (pve experience). You will shred the most Bosses With this baby. Really funny.

        The edgiest wielded in offhand with a frayed blade in main. with cornyx chest and black witch veil people will just quit against u in pvp. They don't even get to see the insta proc poison infusion on the wa

          Pretty sure the blood scaling is incorrect, it shows 61 at Blood +10 in game, not 41. If you look instead at the blood infusion tab there's no bleed effect listed at all!

            It seems that not meeting the stat requirements will change the parry animation to that of a medium shield instead of a fist weapon.

              Incredibly fun for PvE. If you're like me and kept looking at this weapon quizzically but never used it, do yourself a favor and use it. I wish more of the DLC weapons got such unique movesets as the crow weapons.

                This Weapon is not as useless in pvp as some might make it out to be. I've been shredding folks with it in a loincloth in duels all morning. The dash/backstep LB/L1 takes some practice to get used to timing and distance, but it's good. The WA is just... therapeutic with Carthus flame. I don't mind the damage at all because the shear amount of hits you can dish out at 160 stamina is absurd, they just keep wanting to get out and they don't lol. Range. Range, range, range, and patience. With those in mind, this is a great weapon. Also useful to suddenly switch from these to a weapon with much greater reach.

                  You can just get this as soon as you enter AoA, By running through everything to the weapon location. This can shred Dancer in to pieces.

                      Who cares if it is not meta. You can do a leap attack with claws - this is what matters. This weapon is edgy and aesthetic as **** and i appreciate it even if i get rekt using it - at least you go down in style.

                        These wreck a mobs day in pve and I had my first few wins at pvp using them. The weapon art is pretty much instant death if you connect all the blows. They're even good against bosses, I took down Pontiff in NG+ with them. And buffable too! Flaming claws?! Yes, please!

                          The crow talons lowers your thrust defense on the last swing during the weapon skill attack, this info should probably be added to this page

                          • Easily my favorite weapon in the game. Very good damage when sharp infused, great weapon art, takes so little stamina to hit and last but not least, looks really terrific! Especially when combined with Lorian's set (on a female).

                              So, at +10, which infusion maximizes bleeding damage? The Blood Gem or the Sharp Gem? I would love to go at the Demon Prince like a Bloodborne boss with these, but I keep getting conflicting information.

                                Fun PVE weapon, but sadly they are genuinely pathetic in PVP. You will never beat a player that actually knows what they are doing in a million years. And good luck if you run into the ole 3-v-1 Sunbro "we're having fun, who cares we're ruining 4 PVP factions experience" when you can't poise break anything.

                                    At 50 Str/Dex and +10 Sharp, this weapon does about 320-ish damage, but using Dark Blade with Caitha's Chime and 50 Int/Fth boosts it to over 520. The L1 and L2 are a bit sluggish but allow massive damage and stunlock potential, and the R1/R2 aren't too bad either considering this is basically a garden rake taped to your hands

                                      At first glance the damage seems pretty bad, but these things consume hardly any stamina with the L1 combo, which can funnily enough stun-lock tough enemies infinitely. It's a clumsy weapon no doubt and it has some weird hitbox issues with it's running attack, but it's probably one of the most fun weapons in the game. Haven't tested it on bosses yet, but it absolutely destroys lothric knights. This is only at +8 at 30 Dex, Sharp infused with Lightning blade/Flame arc.

                                        It's ability to trigger bleed isn't really the problem (it actually accomplishes that pretty well even on Hollow-Rouge builds), it's that the claw moveset is just so damn poor (slow, short range, awkward hit-boxes, no poise) that finding ways to pressure without spamming the WA makes it very difficult to use. The most reliable ways to attack were just R1-L1 and occasionally the unique rolling R1 (just cause it catches players off-guard but it's fairly easy to avoid once you see it).

                                          I just made my first Luck build and holy crap, I don’t remember this weapon being so strong. It really shines when you rush at someone with their shield raised, stun them through the whole combo, bleed them twice, then break their guard and get a free critical. I haven’t tried with Pontiff’s Eye yet, but I already feel like I’m cheating lol. That hyper armor is obscene.

                                            i used this to farm chaos gem and other drops, hollow build with bleed infusion is a weapon art spamming that trigger blood like a fountain, the pm are not even necessary, you just need the L2 combo to obliterate everything

                                              99 dex and a pine bundle usually nets about 1000-1300 damage, no pontiff rings or other buffs needed. if you want to really max it out (only going to 132 at max) 60 dex 60 faith (hunter+milk+priestess, use either fap+3 or prisoner with it, or chlor+3 if you dont fear death) and you can easily kill anybody with just one weapon art. Sharp ofc, any other infusion is complete garbo unless your going for bleed, in which case hollow+rouge should net eh 60-70 bleed per hit at 40 luck. sharp far outweighs hollow+rouge in damage though, even with a bleed proc.

                                                Started out with a str/dex build, ended up with 40 str/dex and 50 int/faith. Infused these with chaos gem for scaling with int/faith. Add Pontiff's Right Eye and fire clutch ring. Easily get massive damage very quickly. With the stun locking it makes short work out of invaders......as long as Wolverine's berserker rage attack actually connects...lol

                                                  Decided to try those yesterday. Natural bleed build-up with sharp infusion (or without) appears to be non-existant, tested on numerous different enemies as well as PvP. Never worked, not even once. It does, however, has an uncanny potential to stunlock oponents into oblivion due to cheap stamina cost of L1. L2 attack will most likely guarantee a chain of staggers if landed directly into your victim. Overall a clumsy but fun weapon.

                                                      The running l1 is able to be used at a cliff edge and still seems to have damage frames, and even automatically transitions to a plunge attack right after.

                                                        If you are aiming for this, according to Mugenmonkey, 404 damage sharp infused with stats 40 Vigor, 40 Endurance, 10 Strenght 90 Dex, SL 140 Class Mercenary, however, you can put 2 points of that Dex (which, btw, just give you 1 AR, so you stay with 403) and put it on Faith, and you should have 10 Int 10 Faith, giving you the opportunity to buff them with fire, maybe you dont bleed anybody to death, but thats pretty good damage for a very fast weapon like this, if you want some decent armor Ring of favor+3 and Havel's ring+3 put you on a 64,26 maximun equip load, you cant be a Havel monster but less is nothing.

Would advise refining+ carthus for a excellent bloodletting fiesta

It has the Cestus parry anyways, and since the weapon art despite being so power is unfortunately easy to read if people are expecting it I figured it'd be a nice off hand weapon. It's a nasty surprise from time to time two handing it from left hand and doing the weapon art which in some cases is a guaranteed kill if you land it. It has a really nice running and rolling attack too.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                but not good for invasions though, only your WA is able to let you win against a ganksquad.....

                                                                                      - The rolling L1 doesn't turn all the way when locked on your target, might hit with the second but not the first unless you adjust the aim manually (its decent at roll catching people that are moving backwards though, if you rolled into them and then they roll in fear of a rolling attack for example).
                                                                                      - The running L1 hitbox is questionable. You're lucky to hit with one claw, if even with that. I've had people (PvP) straight up not dodge and the attack has missed completely, without them rolling or anything. You have to be lined up directly at them for both claws to hit, PvE and PvP which will almost never happen. Its mostly just extra pressure/fear factor. They should've given it light Hyper Armor like they did with the Crow Quills since it takes a moment to bring down the slash.

                                                                                      Personal overall opinion = Its the most damaging claw weapon, with 16/60 stat spread for STR/DEX its attack rating is 168+192 = 361 (which is higher than on Refined 40/40 163+183 = 347). It has a few unique moves compared to the other claws and the WA completely shreds people if you hit the full thing. Has hyper armor on said move to boot which I've used to charge directly into Greatswords and still beat the trade no question.
                                                                                      It doesn't replace Claw or Manikin Claws. It serves a different purpose. Claw has its Leaping Slash which arguably is easier to hit with, Manikins are for mobility and Crow Talons are a god damn blender. The WA absolutely melts HP in PvE and PvP alike. So its mostly a gimmick weapon to set the Raptor Flurry into action. That's all folks. I'd suggest using it, good fun.

                                                                                        Claws has been *scratched* off my meta list.
                                                                                        It just doesn't make the *cut* anymore.
                                                                                        Kitty don't got claws, time to bird up!

                                                                                          It's often better to unlock and manually aim it and I'm only talking vs mobs.
