What Are The Gloves Of The Automaton

The Gloves of the Automaton are a pair of rare gloves that can be found during Act Two of the game. Besides giving you a +1 to Strength Saving Throws, it’ll also grant you the class action Circuitry Interface.

Circuitry Interface

  • Grants you advantage on all weapon Attack Rolls.
  • Grants you resistance to Lightning damage.
  • Makes you a construct.

As fantastic as they are on their own, the gloves also have excellent synergy with the Light of Creation, an uncommon polearm.

The Light of Creation grants you an extra 1d6 + 1d4 Lightning damage but has a chance to stun you if you’re not a construct.

Naturally, since the Gloves of the Automaton make you a construct after using its class action, it’s your best chance at using this polearm without any ill effects.

Being a construct may make you immune to certain buff and healing spells from allies. Be sure to read the spell descriptions.

Where To Find The Gloves Of The Automaton

To purchase the Gloves of the Automaton, you’ll need to befriend a cranky little deep gnome named Barcus Wroot.

Unfortunately, Barcus can’t seem to keep himself out of trouble, so here are the steps you’ll need to take to unlock him as a trader.

The gloves can also be pickpocketed from Barcus, though at a relatively high Sleight of Hand DC and at the risk of angering the NPCs of Last Light Inn—most of whom are important to the main storyline. Do so carefully.
