The Spirit Gloves (スピリチャルグラブ, Spiritual Glove?) are a Glove-class piece of armor found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, and should not be confused with a different pair of Spirit Gloves (ミステリィグラブ, Mystery Glove?)found in Golden Sun.

Basic Description by Game Edit

The Spirit Gloves increase the wearer's defense by 40 and maximum PP by 20. They can be sold for 5400 coins and subsequently rebought for 7200 coins.

In The Lost Age, the Spirit Gloves are found in a treasure chest in Shaman Village, just to the left of Moapa's house. In order to reach it, players must leave out the back door of the inn and cast Growth on a sprout across the river. In Dark Dawn, the Spirit Gloves can be found in Ayuthay. They only become accessible during the Grave Eclipse; the player must go to Ayuthay's throne room, and access a secret room beneath the throne. In all appearances, the Spirit Gloves can be equipped by all Adepts.

Analysis Edit

In The Lost Age, the Spirit Gloves are best given to an Adept who uses Psynergy often as he or she would logically need the PP boost the most. However, players may have already acquired a Crown of Glory or two in Lemuria, which restores PP during battle rather than simply increasing the amount of PP you can enter battle with. Also, 20 PP doesn't make a significant impact at this point of the game, so the Spirit Gloves have little practical use and may be replaced shortly afterward. Even if they are not used at all, they should not be sold immediately as they can be used as "fodder equipment" in Trial Road so that players do not have to discard their more valuable equipment.

In Dark Dawn, the Spirit Gloves could be given to any Adept that uses Psynergy often. Amiti is a logical choice, being the mage-style Adept with the lowest PP pool. As in previous games, however, the Spirit Gloves are more useful for their defensive boost that for the PP boost, as 20 PP is not a significant amount at this stage of the game. In any case, the Spirit Gloves compete with other arm equipment available that have better side effects.
