Gauntlets of Dexterity: 'The Brawling Hands'. This pair of gauntlets was likely developed in Kara-Tur to aid masters of the martial art. Legends speak of such masters from the Far East bringing these items with them on their journeys, though details remain sketchy.


Due to their nature, party members with low Dexterity are the best choice for wearing the guantlets.

In Baldur's Gate Kagain, Jaheira, Ajantis Ilvastarr, Minsc and Yeslick Orothiar are the most likely users of this item.

In Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn Keldorn is one such character, as are Korgan and Anomen.
