dungeon gauntlet
Plural: dungeon gauntlets
Behold, the mighty dungeon gauntlet! This enormous gauntlet hails from the traditional male side of the armor wars. In other words, instead of being skimpy and wholly impractical, it's massive and wholly impractical. The huge hunk of metal is big enough to fit over anything else you might wear on your hands, even other gauntlets. Think of them less as gloves and more as brass knuckles on some serious steroids.

These have also been infused with the power of primal dungeons all over the world. And not the "king torturing his subjects on a whim" style of dungeon, but the "your imps have gathered some gems" style of dungeon. And, frankly, the later kind are a lot more fun and family friendly than the other. By wielding their mighty dungeon powers, you too can get phat loot and mega xps. You won't even have to wait in the DPS queue.

    • Players had to be careful not to attack and destroy the food accidentally.
  • The description contains a reference to the Chainmail Bikini trope.
