Claws of Guthix is a combat spell in the standard spellbook. Casting it requires a Magic level of 60 in addition to having either a guthix staff, void knight mace, or staff of balance equipped, and requires 1 fire rune, 2 blood runes, and 4 air runes. The spell is unlocked by completing The Mage Arena, and must be cast 100 times within the arena itself in order to be used anywhere else.

Claws of Guthix has a maximum hit of 20. Like the other God spells, Saradomin Strike and Flames of Zamorak, the spell Charge temporarily increases the maximum hit to 30. Upon a successful hit, Claws of Guthix lowers the target's Defence by 5%. This decrease does not stack nor will it reapply itself until the opponent returns to their base Defence level.

The Void knight mace and the Staff of Balance are capable of autocasting Claws of Guthix.

While a rune-providing staff cannot be used with this spell, a tome of fire will provide unlimited fire runes. However, the spell will not receive the 50% damage boost given by the tome, nor will charges from the tome be consumed.
