Thick gauntlets are one of the basic types of gauntlets in ADOM. They have base stats of (-1, -2) [+0, +1], though these do vary from time to time. In addition, they prevent the effects of the poison hands corruption for as long as they are worn — being the only item in the game that can do this.


1 point of PV is always useful in the early game, even at the cost of some accuracy. As they are not very common, one should always stockpile or keep some handy in case of a poison hands affliction.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

Thick gauntlets can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. They are commonly dropped by (enemy) chaos knights. All Chaos Knight characters start wearing a pair, in case they start with poison hands.
