This talk page is for discussing the Claws of Guthix page.


I thought claws of guthix couldn't be autocasted with the guthix staff. I checked the auto-cast thing on the guthix and i didnt see the spell. Maybe im supposed to cast the spell 100 times before i can auto-cast it?--Pkthis 11:53, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Nah, you can only autocast Claws of Guthix with the void knight mace, obtained at Pest Control.--Dandaman879 03:25, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Claws of Guthix on boss monsters

Personally, I've found that Claws of Guthix is one of the most effective methods to kill boss monsters, especially the harder ones, and when using the charge spell. Maybe I should add this to the article itself?Danwizard208 12:04, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

I added it, but now that I think about it, maybe it doesn't belong there. It's just an opinion.

More expensive than Flames of Zamarok

If "efficiency" means damage per gp, then the statement "Claws of Guthix seems to be the most efficient of the God spells, as it requires fewer runes than Saradomin Strike, and air runes are easier to craft than the fire runes needed in Flames of Zamorak." is wrong; fire runes are cheaper than air runes, making the total cost of Flames of Zamorak less than that of Claw of Guthix, as their respective pages indicate. I doubt many people using god spells craft their own air and fire runes... Stewbasic 21:46, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Depends on whether you buy everything or make everything. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 17:55, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Max hit

My friend says he never has hit higher than 25 with a charged Claws. Has anyone else here? --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 17:55, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Well, since I seriously doubt that Jagex is lying about charged god spells being able to hit 30, I'm guessing that your friend hasn't cast the spell much.  Tien  18:02, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
I've hit a 30 multiple times at barrows with it. Mages' book J J762 Infinity boots 11:41, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

5% defense drain stackable?

Does anyone know if consecutive attacks with the claws of guthix spell constantly drain defense by 5% or is it simply a one-time thing?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 07:40, August 23, 2009 (UTC).

No, its a one time thing. If your claws of guthix spell hits then it will remove 5% of their defence level, then whenever that restores or anything like that it will be lowered again.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 14:35, November 9, 2009 (UTC).

if the opponent is potted(say, 20% with super def) would claws of guthix lower them 5% to 115% or continuously lower defense till 95%?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 16:11, June 13, 2010 (UTC).

5 shots to get it down to 95%, but no lower, although they can always boost it again. --Saftzie 15:50, July 9, 2010 (UTC)

Claws of Guthix = Non-Guthix spell?

The article says: "Oddly, the Claws of Guthix spell has nothing affiliated with Guthix, while Saradomin Strike and Flames of Zamorak have known affiliations with their respective gods", and I was wondering, where they got it from. Leon Art 13:39, July 1, 2011 (UTC).

  • No offence to them, but it sounds like they it pulled out of there ass. As far as I know there isn't a history on any of the god spells. So it seems like it has as much affiliation with its respective god as the other two. Unless someone else knows where they got it, I'm gonna remove it. God vivec1 13:43, July 1, 2011 (UTC)
  • Well, yes, that's what I thought too ;-P Leon Art 23:41, July 1, 2011 (UTC). Thanks.

Claws of Guthix or Flames of Zamorak?

since magic damage is based on 30% defence and 70% magic, would flames of zamorak (which lowers your opponent's mage level by 5) actually hit higher more often than claws of guthix?

Ah, very intersting thought! I think you might well be right about that. I assume it works the same with NPCs. idk if there is a point where they would 'cross', if you know what I mean. But maybe this may well be negated by using a Void Mace, which can also cast Claws of Guthix, but in addition has a 10% dmg boost (on top of Charge). . . .
