Penance gloves: Misc



Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Penance gloves are weight-reducing equipment and members-only armour. To wear Penance gloves, the player must have at least 40 Defence. These gloves can be obtained by exchanging 150 Honour Points of each type from the Barbarian Assault mini-game. They are notable because they have negative weight of 7.0 kilograms (kg) when worn. The weight reducing effect stacks with other such items as Boots of lightness, a Spotted cape, a Spottier cape, an Agile top, and Agile legs, making the maximum weight reduction possible -38.0 kg with all but the spotted cape of the previous items equipped (because you can't wear two capes). You can own more than one pair of this item.

By wearing the Fighter torso, Penance boots, Penance skirt and any Penance hat with these gloves they restore prayer over time.
