Bare Hands and Dex/Balance
So, how is this specific line noteworthy, and why is it specifically listed under dexterity only when it doesn't even affect such? Bare Hands is simply a piece of equipment that's "equipped" when wielding nothing, and the Stat Modifier line states:
It's redundant and out of place when listed under an area it doesn't affect. Also, are we to list "This weapon gives X amount of balance" from every single equipment?
Now, if people don't understand Bare Hands being an equipment that adds 8 max damage, 10% critical, and 30% balance, there could be a bullet under Stat Modifiers saying "Bare Hands is classified as equipment and produces stats" or along the lines.
Just because that's your interpretation of it, doesn't mean other people should interpret it the same way. (In fact, they shouldn't)
The two lines you quoted aren't redundant since they refer to two different things: your base balance when you've got no weapons equipped and what base stats are and what they're affected by. Again, not redundant.
Your first quote is listed under dexterity because balance is affected by dexterity (ignoring other modifiers).
Your second quote is under stat modifiers because...it's referring to stat modifiers, and that equipment also modifies base stats.
What you're trying to say is unequipping weapons is the same as equipping bare fists, which, while ignoring the logical issues and confusion that goes with that statement, is just semantics.
