Bracers of defense are a common type of bracers that provide a bonus to DV while equipped. The base value for this bonus is +2 but variations are possible (even as far as netting a negative effect on the DV).

Bracers of defense appear as either copper bracers (and look dark red on the floor) or silver bracers (and look white on the floor) when unidentified. The other unidentified name of this pair will always correspond to bracers of protection.

Bracers of defense cannot be improved with smithing.


As there are not many types of bracers in ADOM, these can often be useful in the early game for a minor DV increase.

Guaranteed/Common sourcesEdit

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
