TheCrow Talons is a claw in Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel.

In-Game Description

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.


Found on the rooftops in the Corvian Settlement, guarded by two magic-wielding Corvians.


The Crow Talons have the same moveset as the Claws, with the exception of the two-handed rolling and running attacks. The running attack is comparable to the weapon art Onislayer, being a jump and cross slash. If used while running off a ledge, it will automatically transition into a plunging attack.

The main feature of the Crow Talons, however, is their weapon art, Raptor Flurry. When triggered, the wielder will spread their arms before launching forward, gaining Hyper Armor and rapidly unleashing 6 high stagger attacks with high Bleed buildup.
