+1 for mithral gauthlet (or a under a different name. Adamantium, quicksilver, Orichalcum, Uru, it doesnt matter it just has to be +4str gloves. Anything else wont work to be a reprint. Maybe you could get away with +2hit/+2damage and an elemental type and still have them feel the same but we have had

Gloves of finesse +3 hit (since hit is more valuable then damage or so someone said)

Gloves of the brute +5str/-2dex, which is arguably more powerful, but the negative will balance it or so someone said

Gauthlets of fury +5 dmg with two handers, not everyone uses two handers so it will help with class identity.

And everytime we make a new alternative we have to wait 3 year for it to "at least be out of print a while before we talk about a reprint". All the while a large number of people just keep asking for a simple +4 str gloves.

I've been watching this for nearly 10 years now, if we do it new melee gloves this year, let's finally put this to bed and just make then +4str.

Actually, I would be interested in some UR gloves that specifically help One handed weapons. I feel like we have many items that help 2 handed weapons, and I for one would like to see something that helps the "sword and board" style.

Perhaps +2 hit/+3 damage? Or something similar? Maybe +/- a typed damage?

Balanced accordingly, a buff for one-handed without a shield could be cool too. Like a fencer or duelist.

Last year I suggested a parrying blade as a offhand weapon. +1 melee damage, +1 ac. Adjust as appropriate for rarity.

Not a bad idea, as long as it triggered the extra buff as long as you equipped a shield. Ex: Gloves of Bashing: +2 hit, +1 Melee damage. +2 melee damage if you equip a shield.

Overall though, if I can’t Have Mithral gloves, I would prefer gloves that buff str and dex. Probably +3 /+3.

I think such gloves might be too good at +3/+3. That's a Stu-Pendous not in the neck slot.

As for the other glove proposal, would we want them to be useful if someone doesn't equip a shield? I suppose that would broaden their appeal.

The rapier is a decent idea, though I think of Brawler's horn as filling that role to some degree.

I’ve thought about the gloves options a fair Amount . There is no neck equivalent to gloves of the brute / cutpurse (buff 1 stat +5 and dump a stat you may not care about). I’m not sure if it’s to good or not, but I think Gloves at +2 str and +2 Dex wouldn’t be terribly popular so there isn’t a very large window to work with.

As a cleric, I really just want something without a Dex penalty, so Mithral Gauntlets work. If I can’t have that, something that buffs both ranged and melee attack in a single slot would be great, even at lesser values, as there aren’t that many slots that aren’t already taken in a cleric build. Honestly, If gloves of weapon expertise were +3 to both melee and ranged, I would already have them, but I couldn’t quite pull the trigger for a melee only buff.

I would propose upgrading the sapphire prism to

sapphire marquee: +2 all saves, +3 ac, or the reverse.


Tier upgrading Ioun Stones is a DANGEROUS idea with the number of Ioun Stone equip slots.

We are looking at 3 IS slots filled with nuggets, leaving 2. I’m not too worried about a +2 save +3 ac IS compared to, say, the topaz trilliant.

If your concern is loading up on slot expanders, let’s go ahead and print no more expanders and errata existing ones?


Endgame I think that this is a great idea, and one I've thought about many a time myself. I think that the best place to champion this though, for my own efforts, will be for the second piece of the Arcanum Set. After we craft the multi-year shirt we should do a muti-year ioun stone transmute as part of the set.

I agree that something without a Dex penalty might be what a lot of people are hoping for and a +2/+2 wouldn't be very popular (at UR)

I am not against a reprint (or functional) of mithral gauntlets either.

If you don't require the shield, then you actually help dual-wielding Rangers and Monks more than sword-and-board. It'd be nice if that gap didn't keep growing.

I definitely think that gap is wide enough!

"While equipping only one usable 1 hand melee weapon"
"(May use shields or off hand items that are not weapons)"

That should eliminate the issue of Monk/Ranger power creep?
