Chi Trap

Another excellent ability that may not get as much use on Normal Mode as it does on Hard Mode. Tifa drops a ball of Chi energy that will constantly deal damage to any enemy around it, ideal for steadily building Stagger on Pressured enemies and when combined with Starshower, does great damage. When controlling Tifa, always drop this at the enemy's feet that you're currently attacking.

Evaluation

This is Tifa's magical based weapon and considering Tifa is the powerhouse of the group in Final Fantasy VII Remake, you're wasting her talents if you take her down the path of caster. Reprieve is a useful ability to have but the Purple Pain has this also and does everything this weapon can do and more.

When spending your SP on the Mythril Claws work on purchasing all of the Magic Attack Power upgrades along with Reprieve once you reach Weapon Level 6. The rest of the skills are situational at best however Concentration Activation is always useful.
