Climbing gloves are leather gloves which, when worn, improve the wearer's climbing skill. Technically, they also qualify as armour, though the protection they provide is minimal.

Long Description

This pair of gloves is made from thick, supple leather with heavily padded grips. It looks as if it would offer considerable protection against scrapes and abrasions, and the grips would undoubtedly also prove useful in the treacherous mountains.

Appraises As

The pair of climbing gloves is about nine inches long and about six inches wide. It is made of leather and could be worn as armour.

Effects

Wearing climbing objects changes several bonuses, but the amount of the changes seem to vary based on stats.

Climbing gloves provide the following boosts and penalties to a player's climbing bonuses when worn:

Skill Change type Bonus change
adventuring.movement.climbing.tree + 10 + floor( (dexterity + strength)/2 )
adventuring.movement.climbing.rock + 30 + floor( (dexterity + strength)/2 )
adventuring.movement.climbing.rope + 10 + floor( (dexterity + strength)/2 )
covert.manipulation.palming - floor(dexterity / 3) - 30
covert.manipulation.passing - floor(dexterity / 3) - 30
covert.manipulation.sleight-of-hand - floor(dexterity / 3) - 30
covert.manipulation.stealing - floor(dexterity / 3) - 30
magic.items.held.broom - floor(intelligence / 2) - 30
magic.items.worn.ring - floor(intelligence / 2) - 30

The stats used to calculate the bonus changes are capped by your unmodified stats, i.e. only overall negative stat effects are taken into account.

Acquisition

Climbing gloves can be bought from Joshua's Climbing Shop in Slice.
