I was wondering if by attacking bare handed, you increase your one hand (or 2 hands) weapon skill mastery. And if that weapon's branch perks apply therefore to unarmed attacks.
Since there are items like armored gloves and skills like Iron Fists that boost unarmed combat, I thought the developers wanted you to take interest in that optiion (since Khajit as example, deal even more damage thanx to claws), and that it affect at least the single hand skill increase.
Yet, I never ever saw my weapon (1 nor 2 handed) skill bars increase while fightind unarmed. What do you think?
And by the way, do the Khajiits's +15 claw bonus mean that every one-hand weapon below damage 15 is useless? (Aside for reach and any one-hand skill you bought of course)
