Boxing gloves ( [ )
Item Type Gauntlets

Weight 6s
Danger Level 4
Material Leather

Boxing gloves are one of the basic types of gauntlets in ADOM. They have base stats of (+3, -5) [+2, +1], though these do vary from time to time. They are impossible to distinguish from regular gloves while unidentified.


The armor rating of these are quite decent for the early game. They do have a -5 penalty to missile to-hit, making them undesirable if the PC is relying on missiles in combat; the tradeoff is probably worthwhile overall, though, especially if the PC has good Dexterity to somewhat counteract the penalty.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

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