Ashes of War are abilities that can be placed on your weapons to give the weapon a certain move, known as weapon skills. One of these skills is known as Lion’s Claw, which can be applied on many different weapons and gives the player to do a front flip with the sword and bring it down into a heavy strike. The skill is very useful and, more importantly, fun to use, but it will take a bit of a struggle to get your hands on. This guide will tell players how to get the Lion’s Claw weapon skill in Elden Ring.
How To Get The Lion’s Claw Skill In Elden Ring
The Lion’s Claw skill can be found at the Fort Gael found near the border of Limgrave and Caelid. You will need to go down the main road into Caelid until you reach the Astray from Caelid Highway North Site of Grace, with the fort being found to the west of Caelid Waypoint Ruins. Once you reach Fort Gael, go to the right of the locked gate that leads into the Fort, where you will find a pathway around the wall. Follow this path until you reach a ladder that will take you into the fort proper.
