|Black dragon-hide gauntlets ( [ )|
Black dragon-hide gauntlets is a type of gauntlets that provides acid resistance and some minor PV bonus when worn.
They appear as black gauntlets when unidentified — the same as black leather gauntlets (which are made from leather and do not provide acid 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. Cursed gloves/gauntlets do not allow to equip/unequip rings.
Acid resistance is rather desirable as acid is the most damaging element. However, except for acid traps this element is not met often early on, and better gauntlets such as elemental gauntlets may be found later on.
