Goliath gloves are obtained as a reward from the Dominion Tower after killing 500 bosses and all the monsters in Set 1: Nomad, Eruni, Leeuni and Ayuni, The Untouchable, Dagannoth sentinels, Balance Elemental and the Ice demon. They are currently the 3rd best gloves for melee in the game, after Razorback gauntlets and Pneumatic gloves.

Goliath gloves will last for approximately 4 hours of combat before degrading. To replace them you must spend a reclaim credit at the Dominion Tower. Each credit requires 5 boss kills and you may have a maximum of 15 credits.

Previously, before EoC, equipping these gloves without a weapon provided an invisible bonus of +82 strength bonus and approximately +82 crush attack. Additionally, while fighting without a weapon equipped, the gloves had a chance to hit with a typeless attack which could not be blocked by prayers. It may have also randomly stunned the opponent for about 5 seconds. This worked in both PvP and PvM.

However, along with the EoC update, they received a passive effect which reflected 1% of ranged damage received.

They were changed again with the Legacy mode update, which gave them the effect to negate 50% of damage occasionally.

They come in 4 colours: black, red, yellow and white. You choose the colour when you first receive the gloves and it cannot be changed afterwards. You can, however, claim an additional set of gloves and select a different colour.

Beating the No More Nomad... No More! Special fight does count for the requirement of killing Nomad for the Goliath gloves, but you must kill both; only killing the first and dying to the second does not count.

When equipped they have an orange particle effect around your hands. Along with the Spellcaster and Swift gloves, they are the only gloves in the game which have such effects.
