Introduction :

One thing I have noticed from levelling from level 80 to 90 is the lack of dual claw builds ( I met only 2 other low level 80s ). I actually do wonder why there are so few of us even though we look cool as hell as well as being pretty tanky yet fun to play.

A few of my mapping buddies has asked for my build so I thought do a simple build guide. If this is popular I'll add more info if not I'll give the pure basic. Hopefully this guide would inspire more dual wielding claw builds in the late game Link to guide includes level progression, budget version, Character breakdown and much more
