Claws of Thunder


Skills and Attributes

The following skills will affect this combat art:

  • Tactics Lore - indirectly, it increases weapon damage (including life leech from Cobra Strike) and critical chance, thus making Claws of Thunder hit harder, and allows modification points.
  • Any weapon lore (such as Hafted Weapons when the Assassin is wielding an axe) - will indirectly increase this combat art's attack speed, damage and chance to hit, and will allow the equipping of higher level weapons used to execute this combat art.
  • Combat Discipline - will increase its damage and reduce its regeneration time if this Combat Art is placed within a combo. This increase in damage is direct; it increases the +xx% that the CA adds to base damage.
  • Speed Lore - will increase its chance to hit indirectly by increasing a player's attack rating.

The following attributes will affect this combat art:

  • Strength will increase damage for melee weapons, and chance to hit
  • Dexterity will increase damage for ranged weapons (and some melee weapons), and chance to hit
  • Stamina will lower regeneration time

Usage Strategies

  • A melee Assassin may want to keep Claws of Thunder in the active slot even when using regular left click attacks, as it gives a passive chance for double hits and chance opponents cannot evade attacks.
  • Double Hit gold mod only works with melee weapons.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Hits multiple opponents
  • Fast animation speed compared to other multi-hit attacks
  • Passive bonuses when in the active CA slot
  • Very interesting attack animation when mounted - the Mobiculum spins around in place while the Assassin's weapon repeatedly comes down on the enemy.
