Pop For Your 'Points (0/3): Despite its utility in battle, the price of Monoceraptors Claw is astronomical. The price tag of several hundred million NP is not justified.

In Battle (4/5): To me, Monoceraptors Claw should be considered an alternative to the HT Swords, as that is the group of weapons most similar in power. However, some other weapons do find comparability to Monoceraptors Claw, such as Ghostkersword. Let's first begin with the HT Swords, such as Sword of Skardsen or Sword of Reif.

At first glance, you might be tempted to choose a HT Sword over Monoceraptors Claw simply for the chance to hit 24 icons. Clearly something like Sword of Ari is more of a powerhouse, right? Not exactly. There isn't even a 10% chance the HT Swords (or Kelpbeards Trident, by the way) will hit over 20 icons. Conversely, there is a 60% chance Monoceraptors Claw will hit for 20.3 icons or more. While it is true the HT Swords have the ability to hit for more, it is so rarely realized that it is a non-factor. Look at it this way: while something such as Sword of Thigl has a 1.56% chance of maxing at 24 icons, Monoceraptors Claw has a 10% chance of maxing at 23.20 icons. The HT Sword average, 18.34, is not very much higher than the 17.98 MINIMUM you can do while wielding body parts of the first war boss on neopets.

It is also worth noting that Ghostkersword has shortcomings similar to the HT Swords, though not as severe. The average 20.59 icons dealt by MC marginally eclipse the average for Ghostkersword, which is 20. Still, G-Sword has advantages compared to the HT Swords, such as a ~11% chance of outdamaging M-Claw's ...
