Wild Hearts Claw Blade Build Best Weapon

We recommend working towards the Minakatatomi on the upgrade tree. It’s a decent weapon that takes a while to get, but it’s cheaper than most final upgrades for other weapons.

You’ll have to go through several upgrades to get the desired skills for it. First go through the Wrack Claw: Rhododendron 2 which gets you the Tiger’s Den skill to boost attacks. Afterwards, make your way to get the Nobosuma Claw which gets you Hawk Eye. Then get the Summer Camellia Claw 2 upgrade which inherits the Aerial Strike Fury Skill. Finally go for the Agate Claw 2 which as the Desperation skill you’ll want before getting the Minakatatomi.

Wild Hearts Claw Blade Build Best Armor

The Garuda Hat (Kemono-Path) is a pretty good headgear as it gives us the Deaf Ears skill which is crucial for staying in the air by blocking out monster screams. You could substitute it for other headgear with the same skill if you so wish.

Other armor equipment like the Garuda Uwagi and Garuda Gauntlets offer some offensive skills which can increase damage. Though for footwear, we recommend the Great Juniper Sune-ate since it gives you the Savage skill.

For a talisman, go for the Otsuki Talisman: Idle Life which gives you the Claw Master skill. Unlike other talisman which depend on RNG drops, you can find this in the open world. You can find it south of the Fuyufusagi Fort. Just interact with the sword stuck to the top of a frozen wave on the broken bridge.

Wild Hearts Claw Blade Build Best Skills

The skills you gain naturally come from the equipment you wear. The build on this article is geared towards an offensive Claw Blade character that relentlessly keeps attacking. That’s why it’s advised that you stack up on skills like Desperation, Aerial Strike: Fury, and Claw Master.

You can customize this build if you prefer some defensive options. Though the Claw Blade isn’t really geared towards a defensive playstyle.
