Rune claws: Misc

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Rune claws are a two handed melee weapon that are members only. To wield them, a player must have at least 40 Attack. They also have the Impale special attack, which uses 25% of the special bar and is 10% more accurate and powerful than a normal attack, but slower. This is the only melee rune item to have a special attack, and one of only two rune items that have special attacks; the other being the rune throwing axe. They are also one of few smithable weapons with a special attack. They are the second strongest set of claws available to members, the strongest being Dragon Claws. Rune claws give the highest defence bonuses of any rune weapon.

Rune claws can be obtained either by using the Smithing skill to make a pair, or trading with another player. The requirements for making them, is completing the Death Plateau quest, along with 98 Smithing. To make them use a rune bar (with another in the inventory) on an anvil, with a hammer in the inventory. This will grant the player 150 Smithing experience. For some reason you wield 2 claws but only use 1 in combat, in exception of the Dragon Claws and Rune Claws special attack.
