Manikin Claws is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Weapon of the Pale Shades, assassins of the Sable Church of Londor. The curved claws cause heavy bleeding.

When two handed, claws are equipped to each hand.

Skill: Quickstep
Instantly step behind or around the side of foes. Especially effective when locked on to target.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Buffed and Infused.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Can be used to parry attacks when equipped in the left hand.
  • Has the most range out of the Claws but is also the weakest.

 

 

Location/Where to Find

  • Dropped by Londor Pale Shade that invades you in Irithyll of The Boreal Valley right after the Silver Knights room (The invader will only show up if you're on bad terms with Yuria - i. e. kill the pilgrim in the Church to save Anri). 
  • Dropped by Dark Spirit Londor Pale Shade that invades you in the Farron Keep, on the right side near the wall, right after the Basilisk. (Must be on bad terms with Yuria of Londor. I.E. Cured the sigil, attacked, or killed Yuria.)
  • The Manikin claws, Londor Pale Shade set, AND duel bow gesture, can all be obtained in one playthrough by punching Yuria 3 times to aggravate her, killing the invading Londor Shade in Farron Keep and Irrythil (BEFORE KILLING PONTIFF), and then paying for absolution at the statue of Velka in the undead settlement. The Londor Shade will still be summonable, Yuria will be friendly, so you can receive all the items without discontinuing the questline.

      I have never ever seen these used in pvp. It is true that it is the weakest of the claws in terms of damage, but not by much. At 70 dex and sharp infusion, it has 342 AR, which is only 12 less AR than regular claws that are also sharp at 70 dex, so really not all that bad. Paired with innate bleed, buffability, and the cheesiest weapon art in the game, quickstep, it seems like they would be pretty decent, atleast on paper. I will make a build around these and see how they stack up in the arena.

        Perfect weapons for a bleed build as have a blood infused weapon like carthus curved great sword which is slower you can hollow infuse this to buff the rouge and the wa to doge you can put pressure on the target

          To win with these, you need to abuse the WA to make up for range. That means having to 2h the weapon and leaving you at a serious range/hyperarmor disadvantage, so if you're planning on using these, level ATN for the FP you'll be burning through in each fight

            Look cool as hell. Sadly when I use these, I get beat by all the straight sword users. And then by my dad. And then by my mom. And then by my girlfriend. Jk, I don't have a girlfriend, just random women in the street beat me for using these. :*(

              So I know the rolling attack is a thrust attack, but based on the 2h attacks, it looks like a; thrust slash; slash slash; slash thrust. Can anyone confirm?

                So no one thinks its odd that the sable church uses manakin weapons, manakins were created by mytha, its states this in dks2. Also earthen peak is pretty much the only location from dks2 that shows up in dks3. And the face on stabber and crusher mural in ariandel chapel look just like the manakin mask and the mural is also related the sable church?

                  The durability of 60 given on this page is complete rubbish, it's actually 35 as I found out to my disappointment when the game started warning about my equipment status. Killing the forlorn grunts in Ariandel with Manikin Claws +4 cost one durability per grunt even if everything hit perfectly so these are definitely not for long stints.

                      Playing after most recent patch. Infusion screen lists blood infusion +10 at 60 units. Have the manikin claws received a buff? Are they the only ones?

                          I got only Dragonslayer's Axe after killing Dark Spirit of Londor that invades in Irithyll of The Boreal Valley. I missed the one on Farron Keep. I didn't even touch him, he just strangely fell of a cliff in what appear to me a suicide. Why I didn't get the Claws?

                            As one might see way down in the comments I tried really hard to make these work, cause I think they look badass, but I just ended up finding myself using it as an off hand parry tool I'd occasionally two hand for the dodge weapon art, which might still be a good little niche perhaps since otherwise the new claws from the dlc outclass these in every way.
