In-Game Description

Gauntlets as if hewn from a giant boulder. Offers stupendous defense, but weighs a ton.
The origin of the name Havel is not clear. Some say it was the warrior who wore the armor, but others say that it was the name of a great kingdom ruined in a barbaric war.


Havel's Gauntlets are available in the Upper Gutter after receiving the Forgotten Key from the giants at the bottom of Black Gultch, hidden away near The Rotten


Havel's Set in general is one of the most protective armors in the game, if not the most protective.
