A recent update made it so that you could not apply varnishes to your claws as a PC with claws anymore, but gloves  and gauntlets do not give any bonuses to PC's with claws either now, this seems like a bug. Would appreciate a fix so I can use gloves and get damage bonuses or maybe varnishes back on claws.

I seem to be getting the bludgeoning damage from my plated gloves just fine

It says so on the sheet, but it doesn't actually give you the damage, I tested it. Even after applying negative varnish to my gloves they would not do damage, it does not work, atleast not for Dragon Disciple.

Use an off hand item. It forces you to use h2h, which lets you get the full benefits of the gloves/magic weapon/varnishes. Before the change, it forced you to chose one or the other. You had to chose magic weapon + gloves or varnish + claws. Now you can at least get all of the above in some fashion. This change was basically the very rare straight damage buff for people with claws. Yes you no longer want to use your claws, but you no longer have to choose between claws + varnish versus h2h + gloves + magic weapon. You get everything, like everyone else.

It sucks that we have to give up the S/P damage type, but the overall damage values are higher.. and finding a more long term solution is apparently quite difficult.

No, I still get the claws damage, not the gloves. I donít get anything from gloves despite it saying so in my character sheet, I just get the damage from claws but cannot apply varnish to them.

I've made changes to varnishes to auto-target gloves if the PC has no weapon equipped, and to also apply the buff to creature weapons.

Does that mean varnishes now target weapons automatically if you do have one equipped?
