Gauntlets are the most basic type of Gauntlets in ADOM. They have base stats of (-1, +0) [+0, +1], though these do vary from time to time.


They are useful in the early game until a better set of gauntlets is found.

Keep in mind that while unidentified, they are indistinguishable from gauntlets of peace. The only way to be sure about gauntlets is to identify them first; alternatively, if a humanoid monster picks them up and equips them, their autocursing nature is revealed. Thus, luring some kobold or goblin over unidentified gauntlets can be useful.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

Gauntlets can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. Ratling duelists always drop gauntlets, which are never gauntlets of peace and can have higher than average armor bonuses.
