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

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

Bracers of protection cannot be improved with smithing.


In the early game they are fairly useful, as every point of PV makes a large difference. However during the mid-to-late game, they become less useful as better bracers are found.

Guaranteed/Common sourcesEdit

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. Drakelings of some classes start with bracers of protection.
