Eagle's Claw ( ( )
Item Type Melee weapon
Artifact? Yes
Weight 40s
Danger Level Unknown
Material Iron

The glistening scimitar "Eagle's Claw" is a non-guaranteed one-handed artifact weapon. It has a 10% chance to score critical hits in melee. It grants the levitating status while equipped. It appears as a scimitar when unidentified, making it indistinguishable from normal iron scimitars.


It is a good weapon, with respectable base damage and two useful slaying powers. The ability to levitate is quite convenient, especially for areas with magma, Tomb of the High Kings, and rivers. The combination of levitation and construct slaying makes it very nice in Darkforge.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

It can be received as a Druid crowning gift.

It can also be granted as a precrowning gift or a reward for making use of a potion of uselessness, generated in a surge of power or greater vault, or generated as random loot (albeit very rarely).
