Skyward Sword is one of the most progress-focused games from the Legend of Zelda franchise period. Players will need to upgrade their gear and other items, on top of running around the world completing objectives. To get ahead in the game, players will need to utilize monster claws to upgrade your gear and other items. Finding those is hard, if you don’t know what you’re looking for.
How To Get Monster Claw – The Legend Of Zelda
You’ve probably guessed it by now, but these so-called ‘Monster Claws’ are items that drop from enemies, hence the name ‘Monster Claw’. They drop from a few monsters, but only if the monsters are in specific regions for some reason.
Meaning, the same monster in other regions might not have a 100% drop rate of a monster claw, whereas if it is in a specific location, it has.
In any case, the first monster that drops monster claws is called Guay. Now, you will need to find these monsters in the Sky, of course, above the Cloud Barrier. You’re guaranteed a monster claw for every Guay you take down.
The second monster that drops monster claws are Keese. Again, same as the Guay, this also have a 100% drop rate of monster claws, that is, only if you find them at Faron Woods, Skyview Temple, Waterfall Cave, Skyloft, and Lanayru Mining Facility.
Now, the two monsters we mentioned are accessible in some of the locations earlier and a bit later in the game, so you shouldn’t have any issues getting your hands on those claws.
But there is also a third monster type from which you can get these items. It is called the Walltula, and you can find it in multiple locations including: Skyview Temple, Faron Woods, and Thunderhead.
I recommend farming these things whenever you can, because, I’m sure you know, but you can get through them pretty quickly once you start upgrading gear, or weapons.
There weren’t a lot of changes to the HD version of Skyward Sword, but some things have changed, so keep tabs on us for new guides, locations, or news about the game itself.
