just so you know, you can't put this in your ammo slot and your ranged slot and get 10 str, it will only give you the str if it is one of the two not both(you will only get 5 str)

- old post but still relevent.

You do not get stats from the ammo slot. I haven't seen any exceptions to this.

I happened to saw one at bazaar for 5pp and bought it for my rogue to put in the empty range slot - a cheap way for +5 str (my throwing skill sucks way tooo much to actually throw it).
If I put a stack of these in my range slot, would the STR bonus stack?

Hello , all , YEs , only range slot not ammo for str bonus , I found these on vendor right after Luclin patched , been buying EVERY one i see on a vendor and any anyone will sell at reasonable price ever since , , Yes underbulk claws selling for 10 times as much from vendor , ,, PUZZLing , but hey , who am i to argue , yes i THROW them , too bad monks can't crit throw like my rogue ,, NO i don't use them for my rogue ( odd i know , ) but he has always used a bow , need more range with him ,, so , i think i'll go cull the herd of underbulks ( OH , minus to CHar , hurt me , my etched bone shoulders hit me for WAY more char than THAT , big deal )
, yes , goranga idol in my slot most of time , BUT , if i need a ranged pull , this is IT ... OH and occaionally if someone wants one for ranged str not throwwing , i will sell one , i ask how much they want to buy it for , if they say 100 pp , so be it , if they know better good for them ,

YOURS truly
only mob that drops it?

I might be wrong, seeing I frequently am, but doesnt a mob in Twilight drop the razor fungus claws?
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 11 2002 at 1:59 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The +5 STR effect won't work unless it's in your range slot! It won't work in your Ammo! To bad cause I'm not giving up my Gorganga Idol.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 04 2002 at 4:04 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Works in both actually. I have one in ranged and ammo for total of +10 to STR

I bought only 1 and placed it in my ammo slot. No stat increase... :(

It did give me the increase though when moved to the range slot....Very disapointed. Wanted a stat item in my ammo slot.

really? i just got a stack of these from a vendor today, and i gained +5 str by having 1 in range and 19 in ammo...maybe the mean ol' vendors changed it when they bought it from an unsuspecting player, so poor lil' ol' me could only get +5 str from this
lev 35 with 107 str
i like these claws!
edit:i love the vendors! bought these for 8sp each!

Was running through EC today and saw someone selling a *5str range item*. Since I don't use a bow to pull, I thought what the hell, why not...

I didn't expect it to be a throwing item but I need all the strenght I can get and bought it anyway. I just dont think when you stack it, it will give you more then 5str, that would be too good to be true.

You guys that got it at a vendor definitly lucked out - WTG. Next time I'll look for the vendors.

Be Well All and have Fun
Hey Big V its a game lightin up listen to us more than those paid programers and kids ya got in the glass booth Ppphhhtttt:P
Never heard of them until a couple days ago

I bought them from a PC in EC selling for 15pp for a 5str range item.
I thought it was a typo, but it wasnt.
So I confronted him, and after i saw, I was skeptical. Range ammo? These things are expendible.
But for 15pp, I took a chance. I put it in my range slot, and str goes up by 5.
Not bad....very nice piece for people how cant afford an Idol to go there. I wound up buying 2, since my beastlord could use one as well at his young age.
Just have to be sure not to Range attack (which I have done by accident - good thing I was too close to use!)
5str only accumulates in Range slot. Nothing in Ammo slot....too bad....

str stack
# Jan 10 2002 at 10:19 AM Rating: Decent
sence it can stack does the str stack?
RE: str stack
# Jan 10 2002 at 3:30 PM Rating: Default
ummm, NO!

Otherwise you'd end up with at least +100 STR and possibly +200 STR if ya counted the stack you had in your ammo slot.

Now mind you, +200 STR would rock! :)

Check out Underbulk claws. Same zone, same stats, minus the Str, and far more common a drop. Oddly enough, the Underbulk claws sel for around 3pp each and these sell for like 3-5 silvers.

Stat Bonus functional?

The Coldstones that Mages can summon display 5 (iirc) AC and can be equipped in the ammo slot. However, (at least as of pre-SoL) that AC did not modify your actual stats. Anyone could determine this empirically by dropping a Coldstone in and out of the ammo slot and watching their AC not change.

Has VI actually changed the manner in which the ammo slot is detected for stats? That is to say, does the 5 STR on this actually work?

Not really sure if the stats add when it is in the ammo slot, I am sure tho, that it can be equiped in the range slot, and it DOES add STR when equiped in range slot...

It definitely DOESN'T add STR from the Ammo slot, at least as of yesterday. Still, since the only other thing that goes in my Ammo slot is Fishing Grubs, it's a convenient way to carry yet another looted item. :)

Throw it, shmo it

Equip it in your ammo slot and get an additional +5 STR !!!!

*BZZZT* Sorry, tell them what our consolation prize is...

But seriously, the few items that go into ammo that have stats don't function. The ammo slot gives you no extra bonus, like if it was in a bag. Ammo slot is not like equipping it, sorta like putting it in a quiver (example for arrows) or a belt pouch (example for throwing items).
then again...
# Jan 10 2002 at 12:09 AM Rating: Decent

Then again, maybe I WOULD throw them, in a duel.

A good ranged weapon with plenty of range might be really useful in a duel, especially when you're a melee type up against a caster and the duel drags on to a half-hour thing like some do. These'd let you keep 'em from medding if they're close enough to keep you from bandaging. (Bandaging in a protracted duel is not as silly as it sounds: with the new skill limits, an under-50 warrior can heal 44 points every two ticks.) Heck, with only 15 delay, you might be able to impede CASTING. And in this (unusual) case, the dmg/delay is maybe good enough to make some difference, better than almost any bow. So practice up that throwing skill! Keep one for the stats if you don't have something better.

Disclaimer: all of this is mostly conjecture, I don't duel all that much...but I did get into a couple of drawn-out affairs which involved some medding and bandaging. Won one, lost one. :P

We've gotten 3 or 4 claws per medium length (one or two hour) session, so it's not overly hard to round up a stack of them.

aero ... i think thats the point, you are supposed to just hold it in the throw slot, verant has never supported truly strong and fast thrown or archery things. .. they are daring you to hit the range button by accident heheh
Great item!
# Jan 09 2002 at 6:39 PM Rating: Decent
I bought a couple of these from a vendor in Shadow Haven earlier. 7sp for +5 Str! Can't go wrong there. I'll never even throw them. Very happy monk I am.
# Jan 09 2002 at 6:35 PM Rating: Default
1.5 ratio with incredibly low delay... On a throwing weapon. And 5str. Heck, most melees would equip it just for the str bonus. And check out the range! I guess if you're in need of a good throwing weapon, this is it. But trying to collect enough of these to throw them at enemies would be a nightmare.
