Brawling gloves breaking

A pair of brawling gloves breaking.

Brawling gloves are members only drops from Revenants, the Chaos Elemental, and the rare drop table. They can also be received by pickpocketing elven clan workers or defeating elven warriors in Prifddinas.

They were released on 15 October 2008 along with PvP worlds.

When wearing the gloves outside the Wilderness, players receive a 50% boost to experience gained in the corresponding skill, for a total of 1.5× normal experience. In the Wilderness, the boost scales according to the depth the player is in, from 50% bonus to 300% (totaling 4× normal experience). The 300% bonus starts at level 47 wilderness, just south of the fence. As the Mage Arena bank is the only bank in this area, it is recommended that players use their gloves here, if a bank is needed. Note that the bank is not actually in the Wilderness, so players will need to return via the lever to do any training with the gloves, in order to get the full bonus.

Non-combat gloves disintegrate after a set amount charges have been used. For example, smithing brawlers are destroyed after 434 items made, with other brawlers having different amounts of charges. Combat gloves have a cap on experience rewarded that does not increase at any depth in the Wilderness.

For players interested in the most use of their gloves, they should be used before or after the above events with the Refer a Friend Programme buff, so that a single Raf xp boost scroll can increase XP during both weekend/aura XP and Brawler glove XP used before or after the event.

If a player dies with these gloves in their inventory or worn, by default they will lose the gloves although protecting it will avoid this from happening.

The gloves will not work during a Bonus XP Weekend or with the Enlightenment aura, as stated by Jagex.

There are 13 types of brawling gloves:

Potential usesEdit

Note: (Skull) means the location is in the Wilderness.
Note: (Bank map icon) means repeated banking is required. This causes delays but is safer than carrying all your resources in a PvP area. Bank presets are recommended.
Note: (Dwarven chainaxe)(Dwarven fish extractor)(Dwarven ramhammer) means the BXP estimate equals or is less than the x2 XP gained using Dwarven tools.
Note: When referenced, the Four-leaf clover necklace works the same as its alternatives, including the Shiny four-leaf clover necklace, Sparkling four-leaf clover necklace, and Dazzling four-leaf clover necklace.
Note: Total XP below is an estimate, not exact.

MagicEdit

Since an update, instead of charges the gloves have approximately a 300,000 XP cap on extra XP gained. As this cap recognises XP buffs, expending them in the Wilderness only uses charges faster for no increased gain. It is recommended to consume them during normal skilling.

TriviaEdit

  • The gloves match the base colour of the skillcape of their respective skill. The melee gloves, which have no directly corresponding cape, have a similar shade of red to the Attack cape.
  • From 17 January to 1 February 2011, thieving brawling gloves wouldn't work inside Pyramid Plunder. It wasn't confirmed whether this was a glitch or an intentional update.
  • There was a bug where Brawling gloves obtained by pickpocketing elven workers in Prifddinas on the day of release would degrade to dust as soon as the player used them. The bug was fixed, but gloves obtained during this time retained the limited use.
  • On 28 April 2014, brawling gloves were added to the rare drop table.
  • On 10 November 2014, the bonus experience effect of brawling gloves was changed to scale with depth in the Wilderness.
  • A week later, on 17 November, brawling gloves were updated so that their remaining charges can now be checked using a right-click "Check charges" option.
