Notes Edit

  • The third attack in Winding Claws is a frenzied flurry that deals 6 hits in rapid succession.
  • The final attack in Winding Claws counts as a Slam attack, triggering certain abilities such as Dual Heat Swords' Heat AoE.
  • Since the re-implementation of charge attacks in Update 18, if one holds down the attack button just before Winding Claws third attack's flurry finishes, the combo chain will not switch into Dancing Hunter anymore.
  • Dancing Hunter's 4th attack has a 100% chance to inflict Impact b Impact proc.
  • The final hit of Dancing Hunter has a strong chance to knock an enemy down.
  • After Dancing Hunter, tapping E  twice will produce Raking Flesh's 3rd and 4th attack.
  • Mirrored Spike applies a guaranteed Slash b Slash proc on both hits.

Tips Edit

  • The pause in Winding Claws is very brief; with Mod TT 20pxBerserker, and one of the faster twin swords, it may be performed without intentionally pausing.
  • Dancing Hunter can be executed by holding E  slightly longer than normal for each melee attack.
  • Winding Claws' rapid fire attacks is ideal for quickly racking up Combo Counter hits to increase overall damage. The fast hits also make it ideal for weapons with high critical chance and damage like the DualInfestedAxes Dual Ichor.
  • When using this stance with GrnDualFireAxe Twin Basolk and DualHeat Dual Heat Swords, the last hit in Winding Claws will release a circle of flames and inflict Heat b Heat status on nearby enemies.
  • When equipped on the DualSkana Dual Skana, the last hit in Winding Claws deals a large AoE attack that will fling enemies a significant distance away, even skyward.


  • One way to get Swirling Tiger is to fight against the Corpus in Invasions, where the larger numbers of Corpus Techs gives a higher chance of dropping the stance.
  • Elara, Jupiter provides a ceaseless stream of Corpus and is an ideal farming scenario.
