Are you trying to get this to be Keen Edge for natural weapons? If so, it's slightly off. This (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/spells/keenEdge.htm) is Keen Edge.



I based it off of razorfangs from the Draconomicon. I thought I'd add a little boost to justify the higher spell level than that spell.
Okay, that makes sense.

As for keen edge, razorclaws has a much shorter duration and a range of touch rather than Close.

Seems pretty good and balanced. The +4 to confirm is a little off, but oh well. Seems like nice companions to magic fang and magic fang, greater.

Hmm, we shall have to see. Even assuming I go pure Druid(or Druid+full spell-casting PrC) all the way, it will be ECL 9ish before I can even prepare 3rd level spells.

Well, these are also intended for any other druid/ranger who comes across them. Hence, claws of byeshk for Eberron druids (once again, I can hardly believe this spell doesn't already exist).

After all, worgs can't have all the fun! :D
