I did, in Dom 2 or so, I think, on a King of Elemental Earth. 4 Attacks sounded hardcore. That's before I found about AoE weapons.

I did equiped some Dai Oni thugs with the Gloves. These are cool artifacts : 4 attacks, man, 4 !! if you give some additionnal stuff to your SC/thug, like Horned Helmet, Stone Bird & something for reinvigoration, you're ending with a real machine gun

I've used them for fun on an early awake cyclops SC.

They are pretty cheap to make arn't they?

Any unit that will suddenly appear too close to the enemy is a good choice. Particularly if the enemy is mages. Adding another item with an attack can really boost its usefulness.

Ive used it on assassins and seducers.

AoE weapons are generally preferred, but all of the cheap AoE weapons can be negated by resistances. Gloves can come in handy here. Particularly if combined with boots of quickness. Not many thugs can withstand 8 attacks/round for very long.

Could also be useful vs. a Mechanical Man defensive line; a Bane Lord would work well here.

I thought those more on the line of the KoEE or even a Niefel Jarl, or a Dai Oni) suggested by Ich. I see those work much better on a high-Str SC/thug than an assassin or a Bane Lord

Hey, on a quickened Davana, would 2 of those make 4x2x2=16 attacks per turn??? Can't believe it would work
