Does something else change whether the tentacle powers up? - Toffee 04/01/20

How powering up affects unarmed damage (or other things) and how the unarmed damage of the item compares to lion paws/leather strap gloves/knuckle dusters both need research. - Toffee 04/01/20

After testing the tentacle for a while it appears there are some main factors in choosing whether to use the tentacle or the lion paws. The tentacle has certain advantages over the paws - lower burden, generally better vs armour, can't be filched while replacing arm, no need to repair and can be purchased (so doesn't require the skills to complete the Djelian Warrior Champion quest). It also has disadvantages such as having to re-equip and charge it up every hour (during which it can be stolen or fumbled), unusable hand/hands, requires ambergris to buy from the Niknax and lower average damage. Stylistic choice will also be a factor for some. Just some thoughts I thought I'd summarise here. - Toffee 16/02/20 (Updated 19/05/2020 - removed slower comment about tentacle as it is inaccurate)

Does anyone know if the tentacle continuously powers up for the whole hour while it is in use? IE it gets stronger and stronger with more and more kills after the initial phase? If so my data in the research section will need to be reviewed as that was done with only around 10 kills on the tentacle. - Toffee 10/08/20
