White dragon-hide gauntlets is a type of gauntlets that provides cold resistance and some minor PV bonus when worn.

They appear as white gauntlets when unidentified — the same as white leather gauntlets (which are made from leather and do not provide cold resistance). They can be distinguished from their leather counterparts due to the -2 to-hit penalty; this, however, can only be checked by equipping them.

As all dragon-hide gauntlets are made of iron, players should be careful with these items with Mist Elves.

Desirability[edit source]

Cold resistance can be essential early on if an ogre magus is generated, or if facing Li-Hon-Kay in Arena.

Since Ancient mummy wrapping provides cold immunity, their value diminishes after completing the Pyramid.
