I got a "Short shirt of leaping" from a random loot pile...
Except it says it increases the dragonish skill when held.

I am using daggerfall unity 64bit win10 , with the persistent dungeons mod.

Any chance of a save file so we can look at the item data?

I have seen quite a few "items of leaping" that raise Dragonish, I just never paid much attention to them they usually end in my wagon or sold.

This is the same as classic. "Leaping" is the odd choice Bethesda put to "increase Dragonish" on magic items.

Someone may say that Leaping for Increase Dragonish and Venom Spitting for Levitate are classic Daggerfall bugs :lol: ;)

I have a leaping wrap found by one of my test characters which casts levitate when used, so leaping is sometimes used for something sensible... wonder if it's specifically item of leaping is dragonish, rather than leaping item.

Looking at the magic item templates, there's only an entry for 'leaping item' and none for 'item of leaping' so I have no idea how it's being generated, unless it was imported from classic?

One of the UESP notes says:
The "Leaping" and "Venom Spitting" items were very likely misnamed by the developers. This error was fixed by a third-party patch.
I'd assume it was imported from a fixed version of classic.
