* Unarmed only scales with Base Gauntlet Armor Rating of Heavy Gauntlets. * Unaffected by ANY perk except Fists of Steel * Unaffected by ANY enchant except Unarmed Damage enchant (Pugilist Gloves in Riften Ratway) * Untested using Shouts yet * Max Damage is 46 or 61 (+14 Fortify Unarmed x2, +18 Base Daedric Gauntlets Armor Rating, +15 for Khajiit (optional)) * For reference, max one-handed mace damage is 536.
According to this, there's really no benefit at all from any other armor bonuses and upgrades to armor?
Has anyone put this to the test? I've seen a bunch of threads where it seemed as if people got the Juggernaut perk and upgrades to the gauntlets and it applied to the total attack of a punch, but that link says the complete opposite.
Does anyone know the correct answer? Not around to actually check this at the moment. --- What's she gonna do? Be quiet at me?
Silly asses shouldnt even of added an unarmed perk in the first place. Might have to scrap or rework my level 24 "monk"...luckily my archery and alteration/restoration talents are decent, maybe I'll make a spellsword I guess :/
I'm pretty sure the perk was only really meant to facilitate bare handed brawls with citizens anyway, which is dumb in and of itself, especially if you get the pugilist gauntlets and/or are a khajiit. --- "When I heard the learned astronomer..."
