Gloves of silence detail.png

Gloves of silence are a pair of thieving gloves requiring 54 Hunter to wear. When worn, the gloves reduce your chance of failure while pickpocketing by 5%, eventually breaking after 62 failed pickpockets.

To make the gloves, players must bring two unnoted Dark kebbit furs from the Piscatoris falconry area (level 57 Hunter) and 600 coins to the Fancy Dress Shop in south-east Varrock. Before they break, the gloves can be repaired by using one dark kebbit fur on them, while having one spool of thread, a knife, and a needle in your inventory; repairing them requires level 64 Crafting but does not grant any experience.

After completing the medium Ardougne diaries, the gloves become ineffective when used in Ardougne and will not degrade, as the 10% reduced chance of failure the diary provides is higher than that of the gloves and both bonuses do not stack.[1] Upon completion of the hard Ardougne diaries, this extends to the rest of Gielinor and the gloves become completely obsolete. This effect does not require an Ardougne cloak of any tier to be worn.

Degrading[edit | edit source]

Gloves of silence are damaged when players are caught pickpocketing. A new pair will be destroyed after 62 failures.

The right-click option "Check" gives one of the messages below depending on the gloves' current state of degradation. When the gloves are one failure away from being destroyed, there will be a chatbox warning saying, "Your gloves of silence are going to fall apart!". Gloves of silence can be repaired at any time by using one dark kebbit fur, a needle, a thread, and a knife on the gloves, requiring 64 Crafting. This yields no experience.

The gloves' condition is connected to the player and not the gloves themselves, meaning all gloves will show the same status. Upon falling apart or being repaired, all other pairs will display the new condition, similarly to the function of ring of recoil and ring of forging.

"Check" message Will fall apart in
"Your gloves are new." 62 failures
"Your gloves are in good condition." 61 failures
"Your gloves are starting to look quite shabby." 33 failures
"Your gloves are starting to need repair." 19 failures
"Your gloves are in need of repair!" 9 failures
"Your gloves are about to fall apart!" 1 failure, then destroyed
