Penance gloves detail.png

Penance gloves are weight-reducing equipment melee PvP armour which require 40 Defence to wear. These gloves can be obtained by exchanging 150 Honour Points of each role from the Barbarian Assault minigame, or 60 thaler. They are significant because they have a weight of -7.0 kilograms (kg) when worn. The weight reducing effect stacks with other such items as boots of lightness, a wicked cape, a wicked robe top, wicked legs, a spotted cape, a spottier cape, an agile top, and agile legs, making the maximum weight reduction possible -41.5 kg. More than one pair of this item can be owned.

The penance gloves can be upgraded to a hardened penance gloves using a barbarian assault armour patch.

The gloves are part of the penance set, which restores prayer over time (30 points per minute) when the full set (fighter torso, penance skirt, runner boots, penance gloves, and any penance hat) is worn.
