Unarmed Skill line

Who wants an unarmed skill line to fight like a khajiiti monk, or have a round of fisticuffs in Hammerdeath Arena?

    Between the FG, Class, PVP, Undaunted and Psijic skill lines, there's enough to put together a very fun build. We just need something to slot in the weapon category for the stats. I've been playing with it, but the 4k weapon damage and loss of 2 set bonuses makes it impossible for anything beyond overland. Despite that, weaving punches with surprise attack on a Minotaur is awesome. Go try that.

    If they have plans for unarmed, GREAT! But if they know it's not going to happen. I would happily accept a band aid solution with no skill line at all:

    Brass knuckles in any form would open this up. Ideally an arena weapon. How about glass on a rope like Tong Po from bloodsport? It can make caltrops do increasing damage like the vMA bow. Even just agility brass knuckles that aren't special would get it going though.

    An outfit option to hide weapon when no weapon skill is slotted would work. That would also open up mages to go with just their hands. If a stamsorc holding daggers can cast mages wrath, a magsorc should be able to do it without a staff and not suffer thousands of weapon damage loss. It's not a staff skill.

    Lastly, a motif for the Fork of Horripilation. If it's small enough, it might have an unarmed feel. With the skills I've been using. https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind:Fork_of_Horripilation

    You can have it right now.

    The usual “my weapons appear behind me like they’re being dragged around by my arse” bug is alive and very much kicking.

    Most of the time it looks like I’m beating on the big boss with my empty fists.

    I'd love to have an unarmed and/or martial arts skill line. Some martial arts animations already exist in the game (Khajiti monks in Northern Elsweyr), so much of the animation work is covered or would only need to be adjusted slightly.

    To cut down on the required work for new weapon styles, the "weapon" could be either invisible or handwraps which would have the same appearance as gloves.

      It's interesting because they already have NPCs that do unarmed combat, not sure why it wasn't added to the game already. However, perhaps that is the 'new system' they are adding for next chapter. I just hope whatever it is they are adding, is NOT another 'mini-game' or other pointless time sink.

      We have closed this topic as it was originally created in March 2019. In many cases, it's better to create a new thread on a topic that you want to discuss as opposed to bumping one that is rather old.

      Thank you for your understanding.
