Shifter’s Deadly Gloves

Aura: moderate transmutation; CL 6th; Slot: hands; Price: 16,000 gp, Weight: —


These rugged magic gloves are often made of soft leather or fur, stylized with motifs of nature and animals. They are prized by druids, shapeshifters and spellcasters who use transmutation magic to assume alternate forms. The gloves double the threat range of one of the wearer’s natural attacks while using wild shape, shapechange, Form of the Mythical Beast, Form of the Dragon, or Giant Form abilities, or the beast shape, polymorph, form of the dragon or giant form spells. Each set of gloves is attuned to one specific type of natural attack, such as claws, hooves, bite, gore, slam, etc. The increased threat range benefit doesn’t stack with any other effects that expand the threat range of a weapon (such as the keen edge spell or Improved Critical feat). The gloves also make the affected natural attack count as a magic weapon.

Note: These gloves can be enchanted to include a bonus to hit and damage, just as if they were a +1 weapon, for example. Add the cost and construction requirements for a +1 weapon (or +2, +3, etc.) to the gloves’ cost and requirements.


Feats Craft Magic Arms and Armor or Craft Wondrous Item; Spells beast shape, keen edge; Cost: 8,000 gp.
