Mechanics

Every character's unarmed attack has a base attack speed of about 1.2 attacks per second (0.83 second attack time) and a base critical strike chance of 0%. The range of unarmed attacks is 6 units, shorter than the range of any melee weapon. The base physical damage of an unarmed attack varies by class:

Class Base unarmed
physical damage
Witch 2–5
Shadow 2–5
Scion 2–6
Templar 2–6
Ranger 2–5
Marauder 2–8
Duelist 2–6

Unarmed damage is counted under the melee and attack keywords, but not the weapon keyword.

A character with a shield or quiver equipped can still used an unarmed attack. If a character doesn't have any main or offhand item, combined with not wearing any gloves, then that character is considered Unencumbered.
