Brawling gloves (Agility) detail.png

Brawling gloves (Agility) (also known as Agility brawling gloves) are obtained as a rare drop from revenants in the Forinthry Dungeon, the Wilderness shared loot table, the Chaos Elemental, and from opening a sack of very wild rewards.

When worn, players receive a 50% experience boost to Agility. Most experience modifiers stack multiplicatively with the gloves (e.g. clan avatar gives up to 106% experience and brawling gloves 150% for a total of 159% experience). Upgrading the Infernal Puzzle Box to tier 4 provides an additional 25% experience boost to all brawling gloves. The gloves do not work during Double XP Live or with the enlightenment aura.

The gloves don't work with silverhawk boots when using silverhawk feathers. Silverhawk boots will not trigger when the gloves are equipped and doing the usual various activities to get them to trigger, resulting in no experience gained whatsoever. It is not known whether this is intended or not.

The gloves last 439 uses on any Agility obstacle. To maximise the experience gained from the gloves, they should only be worn during the last obstacle of a course. Two charges are used upon finishing a section, and three charges upon crossing the last obstacle at the Anachronia Agility Course. They can also be used on Agility skill training dummies.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included—see here for how to help out!
  • ninja 13 March 2023 (Update):
    • Brawling Gloves no longer function based on the Wilderness level you are in, and now just boost the XP rate by the base amount.
    • Brawling Gloves are no longer obtainable outside of the Wilderness.
  • ninja 27 May 2014 (Update):
    • Spirit gems, Treasure Hunter keys, brawling gloves and warpriest gear will now all show loot beams when dropped. Spirit gems and treasure hunter keys can be filtered out by setting your loot beam minimum value to over 50,000.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Before 13 October 2009, it was impossible to keep the gloves upon death, as players could not access the course in Bounty Hunter Worlds and Protect item was negated in PvP worlds. Chances of death are also high, as the agility course is a hot spot for PKers. The update on 13 October allowed players to access the course on Bounty Worlds.
