The Golden Gauntlets are a unique, powerful pair of gauntlets. When found, they are categorized as heavy armor and carry a powerful enchantment. Alteration Tables can be used to modify their armor type and armor rating, as well as the enchantment. The former has no requirements, while the latter requires soul gems.
By default, the gauntlets are equal in strength to Daedric gauntlets. The light armor variants are one point stronger than Dragonscale gauntlets.
The gauntlets fortify carry weight, two-handed, one-handed, archery, and unarmed damage, and will make weapons swing 25% faster. This final effect can be removed.
The Golden Gauntlets must be present for the player to obtain the Platinum Gauntlets.
The Golden Gauntlets are found in Forelhost, on an altar behind a dragon priest coffin.

Background and Inspiration Edit
The Golden Gauntlets were originally part of a standalone mod with the Silver Gauntlets. They were later merged into Relics of Hyrule.
Prior to version 6.47, the process for modifying the enchantment of the Golden Gauntlets was executed at the Ancient Enchanter. However, this conflicted with certain perk overhaul mods and was changed in version 6.47.
The gauntlets are retextured Dragonscale Gauntlets.
