Nightmare gauntlets detail

Nightmare gauntlets are tier 85 Ranged power gloves that can be obtained as a drop from nightmares. The gauntlets increase the player's hit chance by 25% when using Snipe and allow the player to use the ability while moving.

Nightmare gauntlets degrade to a broken state over 60,000 charges of combat. They can be repaired by a Repair NPC for 300,000 coins, or for less on an armour stand. Once equipped, they instantly become untradeable, even if they have not been used in combat. Repairing the gloves will make them tradeable again.

The drop rate of these gloves are 1/2,000 on task and 1/10,000 off task.[1]

Repair cost

The base repair cost of the Nightmare gauntlets when completely degraded to 0.0% item charge is 300,000 coins. It can be repaired by:

Alternatively, it can be repaired on an armour stand in a player-owned house, or a whetstone device anywhere. This provides a discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).

If it is only partially degraded, then the cost of a full repair is multiplied by the percentage of item charge that needs to be repaired to produce the current repair cost.
