So the reward item for the 7 year quest is very, very cool. My only gripe is how my PC holds his arm in the air 100% of the time now. Does anybody have any suggestions on ways to stop that?

His arm is stuck in the air like that whenever he has the sceptre out Sad

The sceptre is technically a torch, hence the "holding it up to display the thing" animation (which is why I made it a torch-based item). 

Evidently whoever originally made that animation didn't take into account the character using a torch.  It may have been copied from an NPC model originally, which would explain the lack of a good torch-holding animation.

Not being able to get in game right now... does the levitate style do this with all torch based items or just this sceptre ?

The style was likely copied from an NPC (Halaster ?) which would have no need for holding torches.

You could also try to do some DM-jiggery pokery and copy the item props to a shield style item which might give you back your folded arms pose, but destroys the idea of holding the sceptre.

I'm in-game right now, so can answer that: Yes.

Tried equipping a torch, enchanted deep crystals, the latter also using the torch animation. Both behaves in the same manner as the sceptre when using the levitation style.

Did some more testing; the only fighting style which doesn't support the torch animation is the levitation style(it's also the only one which twisted the arms to be folded--so yeah, probably what The Amethyst Dragon mentioned above about the modeller who created the styles didn't take into question the use of torches and similar items).
