Red Bear’s Claw item description

Red Bear’s Claw’s item description reads:

“Claw of a red bear wielded without modification by Red Bear, whose name is lost to madness. After killing the great red bear in a bloodsoaked bout, he became fascinated by the untainted glory of its naked strength. I wish to be a bear, no more, no less.”

Where to find Red Bear’s Claw

You can find Red Bear’s Claw by defeating a boss named Red Bear in the Northern Nameless Mausoleum. You can reach this fight by fast-traveling to the Ancient Ruins Base Site of Grace in Scadu Altus.

From the Site of Grace, hop on Torrent and begin to head southwest. Hug the left wall here for a long way until you finally reach a Spiritspring that is sealed. To open it, continue in the same direction you’ve been going, making your way up the incline directly ahead of you. You’ll soon come across the seal, which you can attack to open the Spiritspring.

With the Spiritspring now open, use Torrent to leap through it to another Spiritspring. Take this second Spiritspring to a large plateau above. Here, you’ll see a lone structure in the middle of the area. This is the Northern Nameless Mausoleum.

Inside the Northern Nameless Mausoleum, you’ll face off against Red Bear. This foe is fast and deadly, so either keep your distance, or use a shield and guard counter as often as possible. When he finally falls, he’ll leave behind the Red Bear’s Claw, as well as the Fang Helm, Iron Rivet Armor, Iron Rivet Gauntlets, and Iron Rivet Greaves.
