(A guardian weapon infuses its wielder with protective wards and great resistance to danger, allowing the wielder to transfer some or all of the weapon’s enhancement bonus to his saving throws as a bonus that stacks with all others. As a free action, the wielder chooses how to allocate the weapon’s enhancement bonus at the start of his turn before using the weapon, and the bonus on all saving throws lasts until his next turn. The weapon must be wielded in order for this bonus to apply—it does not function while the weapon is sheathed or otherwise stowed)

~ Hair ~

At 1st level, a white-haired witch gains the ability to use her hair as a weapon. This functions as a primary natural attack with a reach of 5 feet.

~ Amulet ~
This amulet grants an enhancement bonus of +1 to +5 on attack and damage rolls with unarmed attacks and natural weapons.

Alternatively, this amulet can grant melee weapon special abilities, so long as they can be applied to unarmed attacks. See Table: Melee Weapon Special Abilities for a list of abilities. Special abilities count as Additional bonuses for determining the market value of the item, but do not modify attack or damage bonuses. An amulet of mighty fists cannot have a modified bonus (enhancement bonus plus special ability bonus equivalents) higher than +5. An amulet of mighty fists does not need to have a +1 enhancement bonus to grant a melee weapon special ability.

~ Guardian ~
A guardian weapon infuses its wielder with protective wards and great resistance to danger, allowing the wielder to transfer some or all of the weapon’s enhancement bonus to his saving throws as a bonus that stacks with all others. As a free action, the wielder chooses how to allocate the weapon’s enhancement bonus at the start of his turn before using the weapon, and the bonus on all saving throws lasts until his next turn. The weapon must be wielded in order for this bonus to apply - it does not function while the weapon is sheathed or otherwise stowed.

I think there are a lot of reasonable interpretations of how these things can interact within the rules. For instance, Orin's hair is defined as a natural attack - not an unarmed attack - despite that it can be used to do CMDs. The amulet itself can reasonably be said to mention both and differentiate between them. For instance, both Natural Attacks and Unarmed Attacks can use the ATT/DAM bonus... but only an Unarmed Attack can use the Special Abilities. By that interpretation, Orin's hair cannot benefit from the Guardian special ability since it is a Natural Weapon not an Unarmed Attack. In addition, one could argue (outside the letter of the rules) that Guardian stretches the definition of what 'special abilities' could be reasonably applied to an Unarmed Attack. How exactly does an unarmed attack mystically buff your saves? And as Jayse pointed out, the sentence on the amulet's "tranfer the weapon's enhancement" bonus could very credibly be argued to refer to the amulet's enhancement bonus alone.

Basically, I think this whole concept skates on the edge of the rules - particularly given the persistent battles on Paizo regarding the rules-based ineffectiveness of unarmed attacks vis a vis monks, i.e. - Monk's have few ways to magically enhance their unarmed attacks, yada yada yada...

But more important to me than all that are the precedents I have set in the game. From day 1 I have maintained that the Destiny Weapons are strictly in DM control and cannot be modified or enhanced by the characters or any hireling. Fin pitched early on that her Destiny Sword should be her Arcane Bond item as well and she should be able to upgrade it as such. I put the kaibosh on that. She could have it be one or the other, not both. Now, I have loosened up on that rule a tad bit - mostly in regards to damages and some small allocation issues. So here is how this is going to work.

The Amulet of Mighty Fists 'Guardian' special ability can work with the Hair, it is not limited to Unarmed Attacks. But the Guardian enhancement bonus strictly refers to the ATT/DAM bonus invested in the amulet itself. If you leave it as a +0 then you gain no Saving Throw benefit until you upgrade it to +1 or better. Any ATT/DAM bonus will stack with the Hair's normal ATT/DAM.


Well, I slightly disagree with the first part of your interpretation of the rule that you bolded. It doesn't say that the amulet only affects unarmed attacks, it says it can grant melee weapon special abilities so long as those abilities can be applied to unarmed attacks. So really the question is: Can you apply the guardian enhancement to an unarmed attack? If so, the AoMF can be used to grant the guardian enhancement. And the AoMF grants any special abilities to both unarmed and natural attacks. I guess I never really considered that you couldn't apply such properties, and I get that you can't use craft magic weapon to empower a monk's fist with the wounding property as though it were a magic weapon, for example, but neither can you do that on a natural weapon. I mean, by that interpretation, you wouldn't be able to put any weapon special abilities on an AoMF, right? You can only put weapon properties when imbuing magic weapons. It's an interesting quandry. In my group our druid put a Holy enhancement AoMF around her pet tiger's neck. It was bad for the demons we were fighting. ;-)

All of that is moot, though, as your second point is well-taken. It makes sense that the destiny weapons can't be further modified. I'll just change it to an AoMF +1, same cost.
