OSRS Mithril Gloves Guide: Fast & Efficient

OSRS Mithril Gloves Guide: Fast & Efficient

Mithril gloves are the best gloves for pures in Oldschool Runescape. It gives a +6 bonus in slash, stab, and crush in both attack and defence.

Given that both the combat bracelet and the mithril glove have the same strength and magic benefits, there is significant debate over which glove slot is superior.

It should be noted that mithril gloves are less expensive and may be bought for 2,000 GP while combat bracelets cost around 12,000 GP. This is a significant benefit since, particularly if you are inexperienced, you may die a few times on your pure account and it would be easier to replace the mithril gloves. Mithril gloves also have slightly better defence bonuses than a combat bracelet.

Also, since Mithril gloves boost your maximum hit and only require a few hours to finish the quest requirements, they are the superior gloves for pures.

The fastest way to get the Mithril Gloves

Ideally, you should complete the following quests to obtain Mithril gloves on your account as quickly as possible:

Step 1: Gertrude’s cat

Gertrude's cat Quest

This quest should be completed first so you can start growing your kitten into a cat while doing the other quests on this list. This would make the freeing evil Dave quest easier, it is also very short and can be completed in a few minutes.

Items required for Gertrude's cat quest

  • 100 coins
  • Bucket of milk
  • Seasoned salmon

Rewards for Gertrude’s cat

  • 1 quest point
