The War Gloves increase the wearer's defense by 32 and attack by 10. This is the second highest attack rating for all armwear in the first game. They can be bought for 4000 coins and sold for 3000 coins.
Like the Battle Gloves and Vambrace before them, the War Gloves will most likely be worn for the attack boost rather than defensive purposes. Because of this, they can be considered more valuable than the Crafted Gloves, despite the fact that the Crafted Gloves are more expensive, simply because the War Gloves offer twice the attack boost. The War Gloves are best equipped to characters that either have low attack power, like Sheba, or those whose strategy focuses on physical attacks. Even if they are kept until late into the second game, they are easily outclassed by the Riot Gloves, which are stronger than the War Gloves in every category.
