In-Game Description

Gauntlets of the Black Drakeblood Knights, who came from a land long forgotten.
The Drakeblood Knights, who worshiped the blood of dragons, were led by Sir Yorgh in a siege of the Eternal Sanctum, but sunk into the Sanctum when the sleeping dragon awoke.
The red cloth wrapped around their black armor represents the sacred blood of dragons.


Found on a body in the Dragon's Sanctum, in a large, descending room before fighting Elana, the Squalid Queen. It is in a room with six empty, opened iron chests, against a wall to the left.
