-So far, the hidden bonuses we've seen applies to animal-based items. Given this and the existing precedent for disguises that use animal-based items, it might be a good idea to focus further inquiry among similar "animal" items.

-Please try disguises while Etheric. Effects may vary depending on what kind of Etheric you have (or not having Etheric), so try to account for that.

-See if interacting with thematically appropriate enemies and other enemies gives bonus XP, new techniques, etc.
