|Unique Item: Thieves Guild Gloves (000d3ac4, )
Thieves Guild Gloves are the gauntlets for the set of armor used by Thieves Guild members. Alongside these gloves, this set of equipment also includes armor, boots, and a hood. The gloves have been enchanted to fortify lockpicking chances by fifteen percent, making it easier to get into things that are otherwise inaccessible. Tempering Thieves Guild Gloves requires a piece of leather and the Arcane Blacksmith perk.
These gloves, alongside the rest of the set, is originally given to you by the fence Tonilia upon successfully taking care of business around Riften. The gloves are not just a perk of membership in the organization; wearing the gloves with the rest of the equipment will also make it clear to guards that you are a guild thief, which they will comment on by saying, "I know Thieves Guild armor when I see it. You're not fooling anyone." or, "Try to hide it all you want. I know you're in the Thieves Guild... and so do the other guards."
After completion of Scoundrel's Folly, you will be told to see Tonilia once again to have her provide you with an improved version of one of the pieces of this set. The upgrade available for the gloves is worth more gold and provides more protection. Furthermore, its enhanced enchantment provides an additional ten points towards your lockpicking success chances over the basic version, for a total of 25 points through the enchantment.
- There is also an unenchanted version of these gloves which cannot be equipped under normal gameplay conditions.
