Goldsmith Gauntlets are a unique pair of gloves in "Old School RuneScape" (OSRS) that offer a specialized advantage for players engaged in the Smithing skill. These gloves enhance the experience gained when smelting gold into bars, making them a valuable tool for more efficient skill training.
Goldsmith Gauntlets are one of the possible rewards from the "Family Crest" quest, alongside Chaos gauntlets and Cooking gauntlets. To acquire the Goldsmith Gauntlets, follow these steps:
1. Complete the Family Crest Quest: Before obtaining the Goldsmith Gauntlets, you need to complete the "Family Crest" quest. This quest involves various tasks and interactions with NPCs. Begin the quest by speaking to Dimintheis in the eastern entrance of Varrock.
2. Steel Gauntlets and Coins: After completing the quest, you receive steel gauntlets. To upgrade them to Goldsmith Gauntlets, take the magical steel gauntlets (and 25,000 coins, if they are still steel) to Avan. You can find Avan in the Al Kharid mine.
3. Transformation Process: Give your steel gauntlets to Avan. He will use a small hammer to reshape them into Goldsmith Gauntlets. As the transformation occurs, you'll see the message: "Avan takes your gauntlets, takes out a small hammer, and pounds them into a slightly new shape, then hands them to you."
4. Enhanced Smelting Experience: With the Goldsmith Gauntlets equipped, you'll experience a notable increase in the experience gained from smelting gold ore into gold bars. This boost raises the experience from 22.5 to 56.2, approximately 2.5 times the regular amount without the gauntlets.
5. Superheat Item Spell: Additionally, when casting the Superheat Item spell on a gold ore while wearing the gauntlets, you'll receive 56.2 Smithing experience and 53 Magic experience.
1. Enhanced Experience: Smelting gold into bars yields significantly more experience (56.2) compared to the base experience (22.5), making Smithing training faster and more rewarding.
2. Skill Synergy: The gauntlets synergize well with the Superheat Item spell, combining Smithing and Magic training into a single action.
If you lose your Goldsmith Gauntlets, you can reclaim them for free from Dimintheis, located south of the eastern Varrock entrance. They are always lost on death and cannot be stored in death storages. After completing the "Family Pest" miniquest, you can claim additional Goldsmith Gauntlets from Avan without the 25,000-coin charge. You can own multiple forms of the Family Crest gauntlets simultaneously, including Goldsmith Gauntlets, offering versatility in your skill training approach.
Please note that Goldsmith Gauntlets can be claimed in free-to-play worlds but cannot be equipped in free-to-play.
