      Yup. Combine it with the heavy armor perk which adds your gauntlets’ armor rating to your unarmed attack damage, and you can one-punch dragons.

          The Claws bonus is 12 extra points of damage in Skyrim. That’s better than a glass sword, and you’re able to attack much faster. You just completely mop the floor with early enemies.

          And by the time you have a good enough weapon to potentially outpace the Claws bonus, you also likely have the Fists of Steel perk (because it only requires 30 Heavy Armor). So you’re better off just improving your gauntlets’ armor rating to boost your unarmed damage, instead of using a weapon.

            Pro tip: only base armor rating matters with that perk, meaning you can’t boost it through tempering. Daedric gauntlets have the highest at 18. Additionally, Khajiit actually do 10 damage on top of the 12 damage from their claws as a result of being a “beast” race. Therefore, they do 22 damage at the start and at most 40 with the perk. Without exploits or mods, you can boost damage by 86 points through enchantments for 126 damage total.

    I have a t-shirt depicting Inigo from the famous Skyrim mod that I love, and I often think people probably assume that I’m a furry

    Nothing wrong with furries though

    I play Breton because they’re objectively broken as mages. It has nothing to do with how I might or might not feel about their height.

    I don’t consider khajjit players as furries. As a gameplay race they’re pretty cool if you like their strengths.

    People that sexualize animals on the other hand… Furries are into beastiality. And that is fucking crazy shit.

    (I knew a couple people would chime in defending the cartoon beastiality. Sorry guys, an animal is an animal, and you are sexualizimg them. )

      Furries are into bestiality.

      when will this fucking stereotype DIE

      Furries actively denounce sex with actual, real-life animals. Being into that is called zoophilia and if anyone in the furry fandom is caught even thinking about it, we kick them out faster than you can blink.

          i will never understand this. you are listening to a furry telling you that the number of furries who are comfortable being in the same room as people who sexualize real life animals is within rounding error of zero. yet you continue to claim that furries sexualize animals.

            I’m not a furry but I do spend a lot of time on the internet. This person is probably not distinguishing between anthropomorphic animals and IRL ones.

            One thing I typically find furries and non-furries agree upon is boobs and muscles. Two big ol’ titties/snitties/whatever, six pack abs if they have em. Appealing human traits in a hairy package.

            Even furries into quadrupeds and such put emphasis on the Harkness test in one way or another.

            Putting human breasts and penises onto animals in sexual ways is, and this may surprise you, sexualizing animals.

            “We investigated ourselves and found nothing wrong” doesn’t change what you’re actually doing.

              Sexualizing animals is unethical because animals do not have human intelligence and therefore cannot give consent. The entire premise of the furry fandom is “what if animals had human intelligence and did human things?”

              In this fictionalized world where animals walk on two legs, wear clothes, talk to their friends in English, and stress about how they’re going to pay for their apartment, and where, often as not, humans as such do not exist (for an example of such a world, please see Zootopia, Fantastic Mr Fox, etc.), it’s not really out of line to draw a buff two-legged wolf man, give him the gruffest possible voice and make an animation where he talks dirty to you, and then go “man, I wanna have sex with that guy”.

              The important concept here is fiction, and being able to distinguish between it and reality. No one’s going to suggest you’re a criminal because you went on a killing spree in a videogame. In real life, where animals do not have human intelligence, furries react to people who want to boink actual animals the same way most people react to people who want to boink children, and for pretty much the same reason.

                  I’m not a furry or into loli stuff but I think there’s a big difference. Furries do closely resemble adult human bodies in every way, however lolis resemble human children.

                  The only difference between pantie shots of underage girls in anime and those in real life is the fact that one is on a screen. People who get off specifically to the fact that these characters are underage have no excuse for doing so besides being into children in real life. It is specifically their youth and by extension their lack of ability to give meaningful consent (because they treat anyone older than them as an authority figure) which, to a certain class of degenerate, makes them attractive.

                  If a real-life man who was short and had a childlike face was in a bar complaining about how his wife left him, and someone else in that bar thought he was hot, no one would begrudge them for it, because he’s an adult. So it is with furries. We see that animals are not intelligent and cannot give consent and ask ourselves “what if they were intelligent? what if they looked human? what if they stopped being animals in any meaningful way besides having fur?”

              That’s inaccurate. If you actually take a slightly closer look, they’re not “animals with human breasts and penises”; rather, they are much more “human with an animal head and fur/scales”.

              It’s also all fantasy, much like magic and D&D, which means that it’s not real. Your vitriol is guided at nothing but smoke and mirrors. By all means, stay hateful, and stay negative.

      Furry anthropomorphise animals, they make models based on animals and bestiality among furries isn’t elevated compared to the general population. It says more about you and the general population that they equate furries with something about sex.

      Beastiality sucks.

      The best description I ever got of furries was that it’s astrology for sex. The fursona is their sign. I’ve found it to be a good rough estimation.

        Do you suppose different fursona species have better and worse relation with one another, like astrology signs? That’d be funny and awesome at the same time

        I’ve never heard it put that way before, but it’s an interesting observation. A lot of animals are culturally associated with personality traits (e.g. clever foxes, loyal dogs, proud lions) and furries usually choose a species they relate to, so it creates a system where people tend to self-sort into various tribes based on values and personality type. Look at any decently popular species and you’ll likely find that most of the people repping it share a common set of traits.

      I was with you for the first half. And I also agree that people who sexualize animals are horrible. As do 99% of furries. But then, I’d say that 99% of the population in general is against it.

      The furry community takes strong stance overall against sexualizing and abusing animals. I’ve never personally seen a circle or group where it’s tolerated. Not to say that it doesn’t exist anywhere, but just that it’s not something you’re likely to find without looking for it.
