So, one cosmetics-nerd fact about me is that I’m addicted to gauntlets and gloves. Those are often the pieces I spend a good long time fretting about: I want them to be right. And, of all the items in-game, gauntlets and boots seem to suffer from the most clipping issues — that is, when I put a great pair of gauntlets on a character, and the pixels from their hauberk or robe still show through. Vexing! Anyway, fashion’s in the details, I suppose.
So here are a few of the gauntlets that I default to, time and time again. How about you?
The Gloves of the Eorlingas and its identical items in the other Rise of Isengard pre-order armour sets are fantastic items for Rohirrim characters, and given that I am ALL ABOUT ROHAN, I use them a lot. I love how the one gauntlet is fingerless and has its white-horse motif. They’re fantastic gauntlets that can be used with a lot more than just the outfit of which they’re a part.
