About Edit

An offensive weapon commonly used in the Spires, especially by the Spirearch's Guard.


Leather through copper casework around the forearm.[1] The gauntlets are made up of a copper cage around the hand and lower arm, and contain a crystal that can be used to fire blasts of energy.

Power Edit

  • The strength of the blast seems to depend on the intention of the wearer.
  • Gauntlets are less powerful than Long Guns. Long guns can blow whole stones out a wall instead of just chips of stones. (Ref?)

How used Edit

Gauntlets are primed for use by the wearer mentally.[1]

Blast Description Edit

Side Hazards Edit

  • They are not design for steady discharge—overheat. "The copper wires that served as a cage for the weapons Crystal, encasing the user'er forearm, smoldered, heated, and began to glow."[2]
  • If used too often, the copper becomes hot and can set the wearer's clothing on fire. [3]
