Material Leather

Alchemistic gloves are a type of gauntlets in ADOM. They have base stats of [+0, +0], though these do vary from time to time. Their main benefit is that they grant the PC intrinsic poison and acid resistances while worn.

It was reported that they also negate some of the poison hands corruption effects.


Getting poison resistance is useful for beginners although it is relatively easy to find a spider corpse (large spider, giant spider, cave fisher, tarantula) which can grant intrinsic resistance. An access to acid resistance is also beneficial as it will protect the PC from the occasional acid vortices or black baby dragons. It will also allow the PC to safely fight monsters with acidic skin bare-handed.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
