Bloodhound Claws is an Elden Ring Claw that scales largely with Str and Dex and is a useful Weapon for providing an extra blood loss effect on top of the initial Physical Damage.

Bloodhound Claws are nearly identical to Hookclaws but they have the immensely potent Bloodhound’s Step Ash of War, giving them the upper hand. These Claws should be used with a vampire setup.

These claws are a lightweight armament that successfully deals both physical and bleeding damage, as well as various infused status effects if used. The Bloodhound Claws are infused with Bloodhound’s Step and another Ash of War, such as Royal Knight’s Resolve, can be used in its place. Because Claws count as a single weapon, this talent procs twice when the Bloodhound Claws in Elden Ring are dual-wielded.

Bloodhound’s Step – The ability to make you temporarily invisible while evading at great speeds. It travels further and faster than a typical quickstep. This ability allows you to circle lock-on targets.


You must battle the Bloodhound Knight of Volcano Manor in Elden Ring to obtain the Bloodhound Claws. This elite is found in Liurnia’s Lakeside Crystal Cave or the Forlon Hound Evergaol’s called Bloodhound Knight Darriwil.

To approach the Bloodhound Knight in Elden Ring’s Volcano Manor, you must first obtain entrance to the scorching summit palace of Mt. Gelmir. The Volcano Manor sits on top of a mountain in West Altus Plateau. You can progress with Rya’s questline until Rya transfers you to the residence once you collect her jewelry at the Lux Ruins or the Grand Lift of Dectus.
