Chicken Claw effects


Chicken Claw trivia & strategies

  • Chicken form forces its victim to walk aimlessly in its duration. You can use this to trigger attacks of opportunity, Reactive Shots, or the bleeding from Ruptured Tendons.
  • Depending on the situation, the chicken may simply stay still. This is most evident when it's surrounded by enemies from all sides, but sometimes the reason might not be as clear. Give it a wide berth, but stay close enough for the AI to recognize danger and trigger the running away
  • There are only one enemy in the game that are immune to this: Kraken
  • This skill is a good physical CC option against enemies with high Perseverance


Chicken Claw Version History:

  • In patch Reduced Chicken form running distance to 6 meters

      if your warrior/rogue has opportunist, this skill becomes better, because the chicken will try to run and trigger opportunity attack, which makes this damage and CC in one skill

        Combine this with ruptured tendons and bleed fire ( haste the chicken if you're extre feisty)= watch the explosions and hilarity.

          Discovered accidentally after being chicken clawed, I turned back into an elf with permanent wings like in the Spread your wings spell or the vulture armour.

          My entire party now has permanent wings. They can be removed by the character dying and reapplied by chicken claw.

          Weird. I'm playing DE on PC

            Why the **** do enemies not move in chicken form but my guys move all across the battlefield triggering as much opportunity attacks as they possibly can ??

              All time favorite skill. Disable opponent for many turns. Particularly fab for big boss as few or any is immune to this. It allows the group to slowly but surely take the boss down. The group will rid the boss of his physical armor. Then I jump right next to the boss and turn him into a chicken. After that, the boss is toast.

                Does anyone know where to get this skill book in Act 2? I have empty polymorph skill books and am looking to make it or get it from somewhere. Thanks in advance!

                  I'm not sure if the Chicken only has a chance to run now, or if it is bugged, but it only runs 4 out of 5 times, while the combo of Rupture Tendons + Chicken Claw + Attack of Opportunity is still worth the risk of running the combo for 4 AP, ( because even if the combo doesn't go off the person is still CC'd for 2 turns) it does end up being frustrating, because 4 out of 5 times.. just be careful not to cripple or knock down the chicken, in case it is that 1 time it works..
