Got these tonight
# Mar 20 2002 at 12:44 AM Rating: Decent
Was killing these with my 31 Bard - 30 SK and 33 BL with me. This guy poped, we did not want to try and take him, he wasted me and my partner the other night - we actually had him down to 20% but we got an add and he cleaned us up.

I log off my Bard and log on my Wizard. Snare him, then kite him with Draught of Fire. Blasted him 5 times for about 650 each blast. I even got xp for it, shocked the heck out of me. I had no idea of his lvl. He droped the gloves. I looted and gave to my friend SK to give to my Bard. They look cool too, kind of a dark crimson color - match the highlight on his Iksar BP.

My Bard is a twink, but I was not wearing any gaunts on him, have been looking for the right ones - think I want crystal chitin - to match the arms and boots he wears. But these are a nice item till I can find the CC for the right price.

Gauntlets of the black

If the pricing on these is even near accurate, I would get gauntlets of the black instead. They have ac15, 4str, and 3 wis. I know the wis isn't super helpful on a warrior, unless you're tradeskilling and wis is higher. However, in my opinion, The 4 raw ac is worth losing 20hp and 1 strength. My level 17 human (weak) warrior was recently buffed with storm strength by a nice passerby, and currently has 180 strength with the buff, and thats just with Iksar scaled gloves, which are definitely not as good as these or gaunts of the black. I did hit for a bit more damage, but it didn't seem to make that much difference on my taunt, since I can hold taunt even over some lvl 18 and 19 warriors by dual wielding icetooth's claws and a blackened alloy longsword. However, 4 raw ac seems to translate to about 6 actual ac, which makes a large difference in the damage I take in a battle. since the point is for me to TAKE damage, not dish it, I'd take the Gaunts of the black any day. The ac difference will decrease damage by more than 20hp in any melee, and 1 strength is nearly meaningless. I can cook up some beer baised bear and make up for that, and then some.

when they say these gaunts are rare I have only seen one pare drop ever since I started hunting tizmaks man you have a better chance seeing the dog cap drop something besides the sholders than this gye I have seen the mace drop 100 of times but only seen drop once makeing the persent on the mace 99% and the gaunts 1% chance good luck hope you get them any ways tizmaks are great ex from 30 - 37 crap some are blue at 40
oh ya on ferther note there no ph for this gye kill kill he will spawn after a wile seen him spawn 11 times in one day guess his PH is a random tizmak so kill them all

I am a 39 Cleric and would like to get these for my twink warrior. Would I be able to single pull and then root and shoot this guy? Any input is appreciated.

Another 1st kill Gauntlet Acquisition

I was hanging around the 3rd cave entrance from Thurg getting Velium Morningstars for my pet, when Mr. Razorhoof spawned in place of a Champion. I was pretty surprised to see him spawned so close to an entrance, and I noticed he didn't have the Mace, so I was bummed. It was a tough fight, but I dropped him, and he had the Gauntlets. Needless to say, I was pleased. I replaced my Dreadscale Gauntlets (AC10 DEX+4 INT+2 SV MR+5) mostly for the added AC and I needed STR. I like the red color too, since it will match the Kylong Armor pieces I've been looking to acquire. BTW, I'm a 51 Iksar SK.
The Gaunts

Got them on the first sighting of him. Don't know if it's a rare drop or not, but I guess the first sighting of him and getting them on the first try is pretty good. Too bad i lost the roll on it!! hehe! Shakabra Phyrestyxx ( Druid of the 35th season Rathe Server)
how often do they drop?
# May 02 2001 at 1:35 PM Rating: Default
I have been Hunting Tizmaks for like 4 or 5 lvl's now, which is great exp for mid 30's, no cash but if you cash in the Armor and weapon drops then you can make some p, but the guants have not droped yet.
got the Mace everytime, I have killed this guy at least a dozen time if not more.
So they are very rare, at least on my server.
If anyone knows on the Rate of drop let me know

Dex useless?
# Apr 18 2001 at 8:42 PM Rating: Default
Whoever said dex doesn't matter on a warrior obviously doesn't know that more dex equals more criticals and more proc.... know what your saying before you say it....

Not to the extent that you seem to think it does. =)
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 27 2001 at 1:38 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I got mine for a sweet 112 pp. To all of you paying these exorbitant prices for things, I have one word for ya...
Warrior...
# Feb 15 2001 at 10:26 PM Rating: Default
I don't know about everyone else, but for my warrior I am using some cheap gloves that I think are really good. Iksar Scaled... 10ac 3dex 3str and 10hp for 100plat. I think people put too much into strength, I think that 1ac, 2str, and 10hp is defently worth 3dex... well, whatever.
RE: Warrior...
# Mar 05 2001 at 3:40 PM Rating: Default
Dex is amlost useless for a warrior, helps process a little. I think str and ac are worth about the same for a warrior, maybe leaning towards strength. My monk can lose 90 ac because of the 14lb limit and still fight ok, If he lost 90 strength it wouldn't even be funny.

FYI my brother and i made twin barb war to fool around with on off days and over camped nights we often dueled wich ended with him winning most of the duels. i got very frustrated with this being the fact that we both had idneticle gear, so we switched characters and sure enough i was winning and now he was losing most battles. we decided leave all our gear on our corpses and fight nekkid(used GZ because both our hand to hand skills suck). once again my brother war was winning hands down every battle this was at lvl 22. so we compared stats nekkid what had happened when i made my war i (thinking like a true brainless war) thought brute str was the way to go so i put all my points into str, well my bro at the time had a tenticle whip he had laying around and heard rumors that dex = more procs thus he put all his training points into dex. we then started to evaluate the actual duels and one thing we noticed when his war would be in beserker stage he had 5 more cripples in 7 duels but the biggest difference was his average hit with a GZ was 5 more dmg per hit then mine also with a GZ. i was convinced and still am to this day any war with 200 dex 100 str can beat a war with 200str 100 dex at levels below 30 after 30 i couldnt say because we are both lvl 28 now and yes he still wins most often

well iksar scaled gloves can only be worn by
HUM ERU ELF HIE DEF HEF DWF HFL GNM IKS
so that means any bar/ogres/trol warrs cant wear them so the iksar gloves are useless
have to go with heros and these as pretty good str additions
Warrior? Not!
# Dec 26 2000 at 9:08 PM Rating: Decent
Maybe not for a warrior, but for a bard...

I'd trade 1AC and 5 Dex for 5 Str for certain!
? depends

The 5 str and 20 hit points might help some warriors more than 1 ac and 5 dex. Dex only helps much at a certain point and getting it really high doesn't do a lot of good.

Str on the other hand is always good. The 5 str on my sk troll of these gloves adds a few attack points, and you can always use those.

#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 06 2001 at 3:27 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) the reason its not for warriors is that crafted gaunts are 12ac and 5str
Hmmm...
# Dec 25 2000 at 1:20 AM Rating: Default
Getting rid of crafted for these would have the following affect:

-5 AC
-0 STR
+ 20 HP

So, what's more important, 5 AC or 20 HP? BTW I think these look like BI and they have a better name.. so I'd go with these = )
Not BI, Kind of a Dark red color

They are a dark red color and really kind of cool on my troll sk. Also they have some kind of a graphic which you can kind of see since her hands are larger enough, but I really can't make it out.
They sort of go with the color of her darkforge boots.

On smaller sized characters gauntlet color is pretty meaningless though. I can barely even see my wood elve females verm gaunts on her.

Definately good sk gloves, did not know that crafted gaunts already had the 5 str.

# Dec 28 2000 at 10:03 PM Rating: Default
Sollalron you really need to go look at Crafted Gauntlets again...they are ac 12..not ac 16 so by switching from crafted to Gauntlets of Power would only result in a loss of 1 ac 0 change in str and +20 hps....I would diffently lose the 1 ac to gain the 20hps...at least for the low to mid-lvls anyway...but I have no clue where you came up with the -5 ac if you switched...gawd you are a twit...
cool
# Dec 20 2000 at 2:37 PM Rating: Decent
i think im gonna bag my crafted gaunts on my warrior for this thing.....IT ROCKS
RE: cool
# Feb 23 2001 at 12:10 AM Rating: Default
