So... what exactly IS kangaroo punch?

Talk about the game. What game? The game with the power? What power? The power of ... aw, skip it.

So... what exactly IS kangaroo punch?

It's not a normal Naturalist skill, but it doesn't seem to be a spell either. So what the hell is it?

Normal Naturalist attack skills (charge, trample, maul) still trigger weapon effects, such as the Iron Scythe's foe-weakening effect. Kangaroo Punch, on the other hand, doesn't trigger it. Which, I guess means... it's a Gadgeteer-style skill?

It's a very accurate combat skill that results in a punch. You're not using your weapon, so no weapon effects are involved. The others are combat skills that result in weapon attacks.

Hm. Do +melee damage effects (like from the Spiked Gloves) apply? And, if I had a draining or weakening effect from a non-weapon source (like an accessory) would they apply?

I think +melee does, but I can't remember. I think I remember specifying the details somewhere. Or expecting spades to spade it. There may be a cap.
