kimo's notes on unarmed

to be filled out as i have time and energy and some day moved to its own page

welcome to unarmed, arguably (see misc) the weirdest and most neglected and maligned spec on the disc! ready to stay behind the damage curve but in a fun and rewarding if slightly punishing way? here we go!

-stuff on hands: according to research, knuckle-dusters and leather-strap gloves apparently do increase unarmed damage. not my research, i don't have any numbers on hand; supposedly they also "decrease melee skills" (confirmed with dusters: fairly substantial bonus drop in both melee and ranged, though not bow. unarmed, defence, special, and points were unaffected). 
what i recall about the strap gloves was some kind of mitigation of parry damage taken when failing a special. mind you it's been nearly a year since i've tried either. i had slightly more fun with iron gauntlets as kimo already has fairly high strength.
as of this writing kimo is around guild level 240 so i haven't gone for the lion paws yet. according to more meticulous researchers than me, paws have a marginal edge on the squirming black tentacle in terms of damage while the latter is better than the paws against armour. the tentacle may also require high levels of tactics- which you should work on getting regardless.
-healing stuff: tea is of course a staple but in the long run i personally recommend whatever combination of bandage, cure light wounds, and healing roses is appropriate for your spec/faith. the xp investment for decent bandaging and rose plucking is lowish. bandages can of course be produced on the go and up to 5 roses can be braided into hair.
the rule of thumb is advance defensive skills first. this holds mostly true with unarmed except for parry damage. you will take damage through your hands straight through magical and faith shielding from punching trolls, armour, and being parried against with weapons. hitting a troll will give you 1-15 damage (?ish), specials may be more painful, being parried (and blocked i think) can be 10-50 depending? it isn't a ton but will whittle you down faster than you thought possible, esp when herding- that plus a few specials will take your head off really fast. 
with unarmed all your skills are defensive. dodging enemy attacks obviously will save your life but so will accurate strikes. you should still lead with advancing dodge (and health!! get your health up over 2k asap) but advancing striking (a lot, like 400+ bonus) will reduce the moment to moment damage you take. 
i would also (again) highly recommend advancing tactics early and often, particularly if you're going for a tentacle but also just in general. at lower levels i alternated between focusing on dodge and tactics.
ap soak
tactics- tactics settings (not the skill) is a mixed bag- these days i rarely go off insane mode, but if you are soloing or group leading i definitely recommend some micromanaging by way of aliases
tentacle stuff

every darn tattoo including the one with the typo

Looking at yourself again? What a narcissist!

You see Well Travelled Kimo Kawaii the Hidden Serpent.

She is a horrible little monster.

This alleged adult human is about the size and shape of a child with elongated limbs. Her eyes are large and rather far apart, her black hair has a green shine to it, and her little mouth opens impossibly wide and is full of pointy little teeth. The overall effect is that of an imp or a goblin with long eyelashes. She often travels with a tentacle. Sometimes it wears a bow.

She is slightly hurt.

She is sitting on a bench.

Her back has Happy Monkey slaying a demon and a curtain of falling chrysanthemums tattooed on it.

Her right cheek and her left cheek have a cute pink dot tattooed on them.

Her navel has a nautilus shell tattooed on it.

Her right knuckles have KIMOCHI tattooed on them.

Her head has the questions to all the answers tattooed on it.

Her left knuckles have WARUI tattooed on them.

Her throat, her left palm and her right palm have a squid-like eye tattooed on them.

Her neck has chyrsanthemums dissolving into mist tattooed on it.

Her left hand and her right hand have blooming coral tattooed on them.

Her left ankle has a twined centipede anklet tattooed on it.

Her left leg, her left thigh, her right leg, her right kneecap, her left kneecap and her right thigh have blossoms sinking into deep water tattooed on them.

Her right ankle has a knotted hagfish anklet tattooed on it.

Her left hip, her right hip, her lower back, her right buttock, her abdomen and her left buttock have crashing ocean waves tattooed on them.

Her left foot and her right foot have things swimming in the deeps tattooed on them.

The skin around her right eye and the skin around her left eye have striking vermilion eyeliner tattooed on them.

Her forehead has a chrysanthemum blossom tattooed on it.

The small of her back, her left arm, her right arm and her chest have chrysanthemums falling into waves tattooed on them.

Her left breast, her right breast, her left shoulder and her right shoulder have falling chrysanthemums tattooed on them.

Her left wrist and her right wrist have shifting seafoam tattooed on them.

A mysterious opal stone floats around her head.

Her features have been artfully enhanced with ice white eyeshadow, a touch of shiny silver blusher and a dash of jet lipstick.

She has a withered bunch of rain-daisies neatly braided into her hair.

Her skin looks like it has been powdered with chalk, although the face seems not to be covered.

Her right arm has been replaced with a huge black tentacle.

Holding : a set of prayer beads (left hand).

Wearing : a pair of mirrored sunglasses, a moonstone ring, Gleaming Scale, a glittery sequin, a black gold ring and a club badge.

Carrying: a lilac silk chemise, a pair of white fishnet stockings, Scaly Minidress, a pair of raspberry pink stompyboots, a black velvet bag, a breath-taking pink and black suspender belt, a summer's night coat and a sheer black silk scarf. Her purse is tinkling with coins.
