Notes

  • Upgraded with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Gauntlets offer the highest petrification resistance and second highest curse resistance.
  • Effect: rare chance (5%) that normal attacks become critical hits (with 1.5x damage). A distinctive sound is heard when it happens.
  • Notes:
    • Tests show that actual critical hit chance is closer to 15%.
    • Gauntlets are compatible with bows, crossbows, spells, backstabs, ripostes, consumable throwing items and even guard breaks, though obviously no extra damage is applied in this case.
    • It seems that weapons degrade faster while Engraved gauntlets are used.
    • Counter damage WILL be applied to the attacks (assuming the attack that procs the effect is a counter) which can deal borderline ridiculous damage when combined with Old Leo Ring and a thrusting weapon with high counter damage modifier, such as Espada Ropera or Shadow Dagger.
    • Gauntlets have great synergy with items that hit more than once or quickly such as curved swords or Channeler's Trident.
    • Gauntlets also combine well with Vanquisher's Seal, resulting in more than 800 barehand damage with 2 handed strong attack with every critical hit.
    • Gauntlets are often used in pvp as that crit could be the deciding factor of the fight.

      I'm so conflicted with these. The defense to weight ratio is really bad, but I plan to start using a twinblade and my friends have said I would be crazy not to use these with it. I'm only mainly playing PvE, and the Red Iron TB already does insane amounts of damage faith infused with lightning. Decisions Decisions.

        I never found these notably useful, most enemies die quickly anyway and bosses are a matter of pattern recognition and timing, crits arent very helpful, but poise sure is. These have no poise. Back to forlorn gloves

          It is actually possible to miss the chance at the key for the door. How exactly is as follows; You let Creighton and Pete fight WITHOUT intervening on one or the others behalf at their climax. If you then go talk to the victor you will only be offered generic dialogue and no reward. Go figure huh. Also as a side note - You gain Sin by letting this happen. Not that it's a big deal as if you followed through with the quest line...you intended to kill one or the other.
