Are Barioth Claws really that rare? Really?

The Wiki says something about a 38% chance to get one for breaking his wing but...

Damn. 6 Barioths in a row with broken wings and I still didn't get one.

you're probably just unlucky, i get one like every 2 hunts

I spent 6 hours farming Rathalos for 1 plate, averaging about 15 minutes per kill. That's not counting the times I had killed him before that, offline and online.

Getting claws off Barioth was like a vacation on a tropical island in comparison.

I haven't even had the worst of it, some people have probably spent days trying to get that damn plate.

I spent 5 days trying to get one plate.

Dear god, that was a nightmare.

I never got a lagiacrus plate until my 5th high rank kill. I killed him over 20 times in low rank and offline.

You are just unlucky. Trap him drop 2 bombs on one wing and blow em, then repeat for the other wing. They won't break from this unless they are large bomb+ then maybe, but they will be weak enough to the point where a few more hits will break them. Then get him limping and cap him for an increased chance in drops. I think it took me about 15 fights to get all the claws I needed for the armor and lance.

got 3 claws in 1 run doing a capture barioth wearing a jaggi head (fate +10)

Only did it once, but I've never gotten more than 1 before and I've killed barioth at least 30 times.

I usually get 2-3 claws from capturing Barioth online.

Offline they seem to not exist.

Gotten 2 rathalos plates from about 15 kills or so, it's way easier to get in mh3.
