Dragon claws (often abbreviated as 'D. Claws' 'Claws') are dropped by tormented demons, found in the Ancient Guthix Temple after completing While Guthix Sleeps. Claws come in both main hand and off-hand variants and are most effective if both are used together.

As with all Dragon equipment they have a requirement of 60 Attack to wield.

With 80 Dungeoneering they can be upgraded to level 80 chaotic claws by using 5 chaotic spikes on them. This process is irreversible.

  • The dragon claws were originally released at a starting price of 150,000 coins: however, their special attack proved extremely popular due to the large, rapid damage it could deal and the claws skyrocketed to as high as the tens of millions. With the Evolution of Combat, the claws lost their special attack, and though they have since regained it, their price - and their damage - is now much more modest.
  • On the 20th of October 2009, Jagex included a sound effect for the dragon claw's special attack.
  • Dragon claws are "worn" instead of wielded.
