    I really miss this spell. Nothing beats the feeling of being able to instantly spawn in front of a quest-giver inside a building after slogging through a hard to find dungeon for said quest.

    There are the Gloves of the Pugilist that increase unarmed damage, and there's the Fists of Steel perk from Heavy Armor that adds your gloves' armor rating to your damage.
    Disenchant the Gloves of the Pugilist and put the enchantment on some heavy armor gloves, it's the only way to go unarmed.
    Yeah, that shit was awesome.
    Also, Fortify Acrobatics/Jump combined with Slowfall. Let's jump across the map because we can!
    Or the Boots of Blinding Speed. Get your Resist Magicka rating up, put and the boots and WEEEEEEEEEE
    Or just drink a few hundred bottles of Skooma.

    My first time getting the Boots was quite the experience for my younger self.

    I actually thought my game was bugged when I first used it as a Nord with Resist Magicka. Only later on, with a different character, I realized that the "Blinding" part of the name actually meant something.

    Yeah but it only works for the player and not the NPCs :-(.

    True.
    It's still fun to do dental appointments, though.

    Plus it was pointless since unarmed only worked for supposed 'brawls' and for people using the low health bullet sponge mode (or anything below normal) to initiate 'finishers'.

    Maybe that will be the boost I need to finally beat Skyrim... I like to play punchy characters in RPGs but I always get bored in Skyrim because I never punch much (there are plenty of other reasons I get bored though). Maybe I should just make a wacky playthrough and maybe if I dont take the game so seriously I can finally play the DLCs and also beat the game.

    Yeah, too bad Fists of Steel only adds the base armor rating... You'd get some seriously OP damage if it added the actual armor rating.

    I imagine that being punched with a gauntlet made of Dragonbone or Daedric essence is supposed to hurt a lot. But in game, it's all bullet sponges.

    I guess PT never clicked for me the same way Fallout did *shrug*

    Regardless I think agreeing to disagree is a sound statement lol

    That badass viking video, is the only way how to roleplay the only viable class of Skyrim. The totall badass (viking).

    And I guess for what it is worth, the Machodragon kinda almost completely justifies the existance of Skyrim.
