I once thought the First Ones were just
stories made to scare children.

And now I must live with that terrible knowledge.

Rigwald's Curse is a unique Wereclaw TalismanWereclaw TalismanTalisman Tier: 2+(24-36)% to Global Critical Strike MultiplierCorruptedIt's said to be noble to stand one's ground.
To soak the earth in stalwart blood.
While the First Ones chose to laugh and run
and caper with untamed glee.

The Modifiers to Claw Damage, Claw Attack Speed, and Claw Critical Chance are only affected by Claw-Specific Passives. For example, One Handed Melee Damage Passive, will not add any damage to unarmed attacks; However, the Claw Damage Passive will add damage. The leech rate increase will apply too, because it is a global passive.

The +7% Base Unarmed Critical Strike Chance only applies to Unarmed Attacks, Spells will not get this added Base Critical Strike Chance.

Version history

Version Changes
  • Many unique items that were league-specific have now also been added to the core drop pool.
  • (Not in patch note) This includes unique talismans.[1]
  • Fixed a bug introduced in 3.10.0 where increases and reductions to Damage with Claws wasn't being applied when Unarmed while using the Rigwald's Curse unique amulet.
  • Removed the league-exclusivity from four types of Talisman. Now all Talismans and their unique counterparts are available across both Legacy Standard and Legacy Hardcore.
  • All sources of increased Critical Strike Multiplier have been changed to additional Critical Strike Multiplier. This change brings the functionality in line with how most players think it works.
  • Because of this, all items, passives and some skills/support gems that used to have increased Critical Strike Multiplier are now 33% less effective on players, despite having the same value. A number of these have been adjusted in value to maintain similar effectiveness.
  • Introduced to the game.
