Overview

Fire Claw is one of 10 possible unique skills that can be obtained from Frogidi's Fortunes.
Fire Claw has 17 alternative colors which changes the color of the flame and the claw trail afterwards. Orange is not a possible color.

The timing for the Action Command is about moment the player swings their right arm to the left.
Succeeding the Action Command performs a 'Critical!' hit, increasing the amount of POW.pngDamage dealt by 1.

Usage

Fire Claw deals a low amount of POW.pngDamage to all enemies in addition to having DEF.png1 Defense piercing as well as Burn.pngBurn-1.

Compared to the other SP.png1 SP cost Frogidi's Fortune skills: Bomb Toss and Lightning Spear, Fire Claw deals equal amounts of POW.pngDamage to each enemy rather than the more focused POW.pngDamage from both the other two skills.

Fire Claw is also comparable to the Tough Poison Spray, which inflicts similar POW.pngDamage as well as a damage-over-time status and both costing SP.png1 SP. The main difference is the Poison Spray's Poison.pngPoison status, but a lack of DEF.pngDefense piercing.

The most useful property of Fire Claw would be its Burn.pngBurn-1 status, as it results in dealing POW.png2 Damage more in total. Due to the nature of the Burn.pngBurn status, Fire Claw is more useful in drawn out fights like Corruption.pngCorruption 2 or 3 enemies and bosses, however its use is limited because of its low POW.pngDamage. This property is overshadowed by Fiery Explosion, dealing more POW.pngDamage from the initial attack and has a 3 Turn Burn.pngBurn-1 status instead, though it costs SP.png3 SP. This makes Fire Claw more or less a supplement when SP.png3 SP cannot be afforded or if Fiery Explosion is overkill for the situation. Keep in mind that the Burn.pngBurn status inflicted by both does not stack on its duration nor reset it.

Against Corruption.pngCorruption 1 & 2 enemies, the enemy will all have at least DEF.png1 Defense, which Fire Claw pierces through.

Against Corruption.pngCorruption 3 enemies, the enemy will all have at least DEF.png3 Defense, rendering Fire Claw fully blocked unless the POW.pngDamage is increased.

Overall, Fire Claw is mostly outshined by Fiery Explosion, but still useful as a weak clean-up tool on low HP.pngHP enemies.

Notes

  • The Burn.pngBurn status will not be inflicted if no POW.pngDamage was dealt.

Trivia

  • Fire Claw can be used by Corruption.pngCorruption 2+ Wraiths and Dwellers.
  • Fire Claw's past name is "Flame Powder".
