75 ectos ? really? a bad joke? Biz 12:30, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

The note about them looking identical for every that confirmed? Because so far glacial gauntlets don't look the same on mesmers as they do on others. Mesmer glacial gauntlets end abruptly at the wrist and don't cover any of the forearm. :( -- 14:49, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
Indeed, 75 ectos! BTW, they look plenty good and unique, plus expensive, lol! --NeHoMaR User NeHoMaR sig.jpg 18:08, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Not worth 75 ectos IMO, all they basically do is dye your hands white. --Doom 18:45, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

^Agree^ its about as insane as setting 250 destroyer cores for Destroyer Gauntlets. Biz 19:07, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
well, but your char will be as flashy as if you'd wear a chaos axe^^ could be annoying after longer time, but you'll be conspicuous :P —ZerphatalkThe Improver 01:20, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
Mind you my flawless Chaos was 4 times cheaper =D Biz 09:07, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
yeah^^ but it wasn't part of your armor and shown in outposts —ZerphatalkThe Improver 14:14, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

I think someone should mention they dye like a chaos axeRaginMoto 06:37, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

Then dye it white to be blinded or black to be almost transparent -elviondale (tahlk) 12:50, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
I dyed mine pink and something went wrong, dyed them red+purple+purple and you can see part of my arm through the shiny bit, looks like hands been amputated T_T. Ah well, still looks ok. Can supply a pic if needed, Slaphead Monk

It looks kinda like The Devil Bringer from DMC4, but with both hands lol

Ooooo ghost hands71.222.47.119 10:25, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

75 ectos? Fuck that... -- 17:16, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Jeez, why did they put this price on some "decent" hand art? It could have been useful otherwise as a fun gimmick, because that's all it feels like -- a fun gimmick. Not an awesome new armor/equipment or anything, with that price. -- Jonas N 07:44, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

It is only in-game currency and if you don't like them don't buy them. There are always going to be some people who like an item and others who don't. It is just a sad fact of life. What price would you put on them? I personally like them but they don't go well with any of my armor so I probably won't get it. About the only thing i could see putting them on(for me personally) is my Rit. AndersTheBloody 02:41, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Hmph, tha guy should have a use account here, hate it when they cuss on the wiki...anyway, if it werent for the 75 ectos id buy it...maybe...--Raph User Raph Sig.png 01:43, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

This is an extremely nice piece of armor. First time I saw one of those, I actually wrote a bug report to tell them something was wrong with the armor graphics! :D Yet I can imagine my assassin swinging his daggers – all my enemies could see would be a glowing and whirling cloud of… pure ectoplasm. -- 18:55, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Mesmer Version[edit]

Did SB get a picture of the Mesmer Gloves? These look always diffrent, don't they? Mesmers have only little gloves for the hands. —ZerphatalkThe Improver 14:17, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Simply because mesmers have sleeves. :D -UserDrago-sig.gif Drago 20:35, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

so mesmers will get them half price right :D --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: .

So what's the deal? Only the hands for Mesmers then? Anyone who could confirm this? BlazeRick 09:05, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

nay, they all have the same gloves, i saw one in EotN, sorry that i cant confirm with screenshot ~ Abbadon

i can...just saw one next to the mad king.

oh noes![edit]

it are the anal gloves (i seem to be the only one in whole gw to hate em, same als those dragon things) ~ Abbadon 20:35, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

I think they fail...but I don't mind other people wasting their money on them. Lord of all tyria 20:37, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

its just the same as getting obsidian armor considering it has the same defence bonus as armor u can pay 4 - 6k for

Epic Fail[edit]

Epic fail Anet... 75 ectos to dye your hands white? Lord of all Tyria --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: .

It's called a gold sink, and it's a little more than just dying your hands white... -AyaStowar
Sure looks like dying your hands white... Ugly. --fraught · (talk) 18:46, 9 December 2007 (UTC)
Whats the prob if you think it just looks like dying your hands. You dont have to buy these if you dont like them. Some ppl do, and they are willing to use 75 ectos to these, looks cool & rich ofcourse. And yes, it is a gold sink. I wonder whats the next one, i already have these, obsis and tormented weapon. I want something cool, looking rich rocks. Limu Tolkki 15:52, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
Gold sinks work best if people really want to get the produced items though. ;-) -- Jonas N 00:59, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

I have them, it took me awhile to build up the ecto, but I feel they are totally worth it. They look amazing with a monk dyed blue. As I was saying, it took awhile to build up the ecto, but I have nothing else to spend money on, I have already gotten every skill in the game, and ideal weapons for my main character and heros. Are they expensive, yes. Are they attainable, yes. Are they worth while........that is up to each person. Med Luvin 16:25, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

these + monk FoW + mask of the mo zing is hawt ^^-- 08:18, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

I salvaged them (not on purpose!) and only got some glittering dust :'(The Holy Dragons 19:04, 13 July 2010 (UTC)


I salvaged some to see what they turn into, found out ^_^.Quetzal 21:40, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

O.o so what do they turn into when you salvage them? I've had people tease me, asking me to salvage mine. Noo way. §Azhure Sun Soar 10:52, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
People don't tease you becouse they want to know what it will be, they tease you becouse they don't have 75 ectos to waste. One item can remain with no salvage data as far as I'm concerned. Biz 11:04, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
I'd assume it's something like Obsidian armor. Ecto or dust. §Azhure Sun Soar 11:13, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
Crafted items always salvage into one of their materials needed to craft them afaik, so you're right, they'll likely either turn into dust or ectoplasm. —ZerphatalkThe Improver 11:31, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
Can you imagine if they crafted into dust? Haha pwnt! User:Mara Scythestorm
It could be A LOT of dust.
My friend salvaged it with sup salvage kit, and he got nothing xD Mr HaXx
Impossible. Did he bother to look in the chat log to see what it salvaged into? Anything salvageable will always produce something when the item is destroyed... did he perhaps have some Glittering Dust or Ectos in his inventory already, and then got more of them from the salvage but didn't notice as they went into those pre-existing stacks? If you don't see what you got from a salvage, always check the chat log for the details. ~ User:J.Kougar J.Kougar 20:16, 8 September 2008 (UTC)


I noticed some speculation about how these gloves dye in above sections, but it doesn't look like anyone actually provided any clarification, and the article page just mentions that they are "Fully dyable".
I'll attempt to provide some helpful information pertaining to this below.

They do not dye in the same backwards fashion that the Chaos Axes do, and where as putting Black on a Chaos Axe will result in a cool ghostly-transparent effect, you cannot obtain the same result on these gloves... and putting on a color such as purple will result in the gloves glowing purple.

Like many, I'm not a big fan of these gloves. I find them to be too bright in most instances and I personally think they look much more fitting on say a Monk, than they do on a Warrior.
However, if you want the gloves but don't want them to be so bright/glary, you can dim the glow down a lot with the use of Black Dye. One black dye doesn't help much, but two of them can effectively dull the glow down significantly. Then you can add in a third color for a lesser amount of glow. Using two black dyes and a silver will result in a dim bluish glow (less bright than two blacks and a blue), where two blacks and a gray will result in a very low amount of glow with a mild purple tint.
Personally I found the two black and one gray to be the ideal balance for dimming the glow down but still leaving a nice effect, and as such I use this combination on all my Chaos Gloves.

I realize the above information is less helpful in text than an actual screen-shot of the gloves with the various dyes applied would be, but given the extent of the different effects you can obtain via applying multiple dyes to these gloves, it would be hard to make a collage style image with only the basic colors and not be compelled to include the more interesting combinations of dye as well. Perhaps if I have time I'll attempt to assemble such an image for reference for those considering the purchase of these gloves and then post it in the item's article. When I might accomplish this task is very hard to say, so if anyone else feels they'd like to take a shot at it instead, please don't let me intentions to do it eventually dissuade you from the task.  ;) ~ User:J.Kougar J.Kougar 21:52, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

Anyone know what these look like black? Not that I would ever do it, but I was wondering if they would like the Chaos Axe dyed black, clear. Mason717 04:46, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

A Price that Matches the Ego[edit]

90% of the people i see with these thing have at least a people know me title, and another full set of elite armor (most of the time FoW armor). either they have been saving up for 3 years on ectos (i highly doubt it, since no1 even knew what they were saving up for) or they really need to get out more. waaaay too egotistical for me. id rather spend that kind of money on a FULL armor set. elite luxon ftw!!xDValion Sentis 03:03, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Bah, you get People know me and have several 15k armor sets or fow, most expensive weapon(s) of its time JUST by playing casually since Prophecies. People are faced with the fact that they have hundreds of thousands with out anything to spend it on then a single armour peace comes along where for some 300k you get something that for some professions even looks good. Biz 06:22, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
I don't play GW allot and when I do play I multitask, like surfing the web, developing my program and such and I still got enough money to buy FoW armor in a week. I'm saving for the Chaos Gloves for my warrior because I think that it looks great with Chaos Axe + Eternal Shield/Tormented Shield (the first axe is blue and the second is purple). But you're right, I also do it for the rep.--Itamar Dishonorable.jpg 08:40, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
I missed this little lol. Thank you for that. – josəph 17:45, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Salvage Conflict![edit]

I've just salvaged some chaos gloves, and I got 25 ectos, and thus I propose that the number of ectos one can salvage is random (possibly up TO 39, but not a set 39 as the page would suggest.) Screenshot: Chaos Salvage.jpg Revelation talk 20:17, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Um... wow. Salvage for great justice? --User Vorith sig.jpgorith is so fail 00:01, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
Hell yeah, they were sitting on a mesmer (Dominating Enigma) Who I've not logged into for god knows how long, I already have tonnes of other "impressive" items, countless tormented weapons/obsidian armours/voltaic spears, so I decided to make a character slot, and get all I could out of Mr. Enigma.

The salvage notes? Feel free to update them, if you want. o_O But the note as written says, you can get a bunch of dust and a few ectos, a bunch of ecto, or, if the gods really hate you, a bunch of dust and no ectos. Freedom Bound 23:13, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
the second note under dye...thatd be about dye, not salvation ^_____^, the counter-tuitive thing →Darklɘs McChaosmongɘr 05:14, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Counterintuitive. For instance, using a red+blue dye, you'd expect a purple color, but the Gloves will be dyed green. -- Arduin talk 15:28, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

These look good on mesmers, but that's about it.  :/ The other classes all look weird since it fades out, leaving a lot of your arm exposed. They also lack detail. I suggest Destroyer Gauntlets, but destroyer cores are harder to get than ectos these days.  :| --Jette User Jette awesome.png 03:26, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

I think they're kinda cool, but they really ought to let you wear other armor over them. They look kind of silly on most classes, it's like you rolled up your sleeves to make ecto cookies or something. —Jette User Jette awesome.png 20:28, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

I saw some ele with gloves and the arms colored in black (with FoW armor). How can it be done? I tried using black dye but the arms are still without additional color. 10:14, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

You sure it was Obsidian? Elite Stoneforged causes the arms to turn black. —Jette User Jette awesome.png 10:58, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

WHY WOULD ANYONE pay 75 ectos for glowing hands, thats the dumbest thing i've ever hurd. Why even waist time i realy wish they changed it. >.< For something that makes your hands only glow should be 1 ecto which is still to much for something so lame imo...

I don't get all the hate. If you think it looks ugly why do you even care about how high the price is? Just don't buy it then. I think it stands out and looks good depending on the armor set, so I bought my pair. It looks fine on Monks, it looks even better (more discrete) on Mesmers.

Does it look good with a choas axe like it does with destroyer guantlets and destroyer weapons? Does the axe like melt together?
