Ironfist is a pair of artifact gauntlets in ADOM. They have stats of (-1, +0) [+1, +3] and increase Strength by 7.

Their unidentified appearance is iron gauntlets, making identification trivial.


Ironfist offers little more than a pair of above-average gauntlets of strength. Stun resistance is situationally useful, mostly to prevent the effect of some door traps and strong hits from monsters. However, they have some advantages. As all artifact gauntlets, they will protect any worn rings from destruction while indestructible themselves, and the +7 bonus to strength (which greatly increases carrying capacity and melee damage) can be very useful, especially in the early game.
