Thick gauntlets are one of the basic type of gauntlets in ADOM. They have base stats of (-1, -2) [+0, +1], those 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.

Cursed gauntlets do  not allow to equip/unequip rings.


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 sourcesEdit

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