When wearing the gloves outside the Wilderness, players receive a 50% bonus to experience gained in the corresponding skill, for a total of 1.5× normal experience. In the Wilderness, the bonus is 300% (totaling 4× normal experience). The 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.
Brawling gloves will also stack with Sacred clay items, Sköll boots and the Penance horn for eight times the experience in the Wilderness, and triple experience elsewhere. However, this makes the gloves last half as long, giving the same exact amount of experience overall, just twice as fast. The gloves have no effect if a Bonus XP Weekend or Refer a Friend Programme experience bonus is active, but the gloves will not degrade either during such events.
