Overview

Claws is a standard power set that is a primary set for Brutes, Scrappers, and Stalkers.

"Claws are bones or blades that extend from your hands and cause Lethal damage. The lightweight, natural feel of claws gives this power set a reduced Endurance cost and faster attack rate than other melee sets."

Powers

Claws AssassinClaw.png Assassin's Claw

A signature Stalker attack. This attack does moderate damage on its own as a frontal attack and cannot be interrupted. However, if it is executed while you are Hidden, this attack will do tremendous lethal damage, as you impale your unsuspecting foe. This attack may be interrupted if you move or are attacked while executing this power and are hidden. Using this power while not hidden has a chance to critically hit equal to 33.3% times the number of stacks of Assassin's Focus. Using Assassin's Claw when not hidden will remove all stacks of Assassin's Focus regardless if you critically hit or not.
