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.

Desirability[edit source]

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[edit source]

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