Death Claw (Su)

Once every 1d2 rounds, a death claw can wrap its craws around its target squeezing the life from them. The death claw must make a melee touch attack (+19), if it hits, 14d6 points of non-elemental damage and must make a Fortitude save (DC 20) or be inflicted with the Paralysis status for 1d4+1 rounds. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 6th level spell (Knowledge: Arcana DC 27).

Improved Rend (Ex)

When a death claw hits with its claws in 1 round, depending on the number of claw strikes that hit the target improves the damage of the latching onto the opponent’s body and tearing flesh. If two claws hit, the damage will be 1d8+10, if four claws hit, the damage will be 2d6+10, or if six claws hit, the damage will be 2d8+10.
