I'm trying to get Monster Claws, to upgrade some of my early equipment, but I only have access to the Faron forest, and Skyloft.

You can get Monster Claws from Keese (bats) of any type. Just look for a place that has a lot of them and grind it out.

A place that comes to mind at that point in the game where you can find a lot would be the Waterfall Cave. That's the cave in Skyloft which is behind the waterfall where you had to go get your Loftwing. It should be relatively easy to go through that multiple times.

If you can wait a little bit longer, you might want to get the Treasure Medal before doing this to give them a better chance at appearing. You'll get this when you reach Eldin Volcano from one of the Goddess Cubes.

To the east of the Fire Temple behind the houses down by the lava.

Also dropped from the little spiders on vines (their name escapes me). – CyberSkull Dec 1 '11 at 4:24
Yeah but I wouldn't say they're plentiful. IIRC, they only appeared in the forest temple and up in the great tree later on and in small numbers. – Jeff Mercado Dec 1 '11 at 4:26
I must say, I've found myself getting further in the game, and still getting them from the waterfall cave. This truly is an invaluable tip. Thanks! – PearsonArtPhoto Dec 1 '11 at 14:40
Unfortunately when you beat the Sky Keep, Skyloft goes "back to normal" and there are no baddies at night. Including the cave. Wish I knew that before so I could upgrade this silly bow. – user15956 Dec 5 '11 at 20:10

The monsters in Skyloft (and the Waterfall Cave) only disappear after you've acquired all the Gratitude Crystals.

There are Keese on the Great Tree (close to the Bird Statue), and in the Volcano Summit, in the room to the right with the room to the dragon in the back.

Also, there's many Keese at the Pirate Stronghold - but only if you haven't beaten and opened the mouth yet.
