In a small village just south of the vast moors of Nolir, an old craftsman works long nights to provide a much needed service to bandits and thieves in neighboring cities. He uses the hide of a rare lizard that is as tough and durable as rock, adorning with blistering steel to create a pair of gloves worth fighting for.
Due to how significant the increase in damage from a critical strike is in early game trades, gettingBrawler's Gloves on champions who rely on critical hits can lead to devastating damage early game. This can either be on a champion who has a ranged on-hit effect ability such as Gangplank'sParrrley, or a champion like Tryndamere who has a kit which relies on critical hits.
Combined with critical damage runes, Brawler's Gloves can sometimes lead to an easy first blood when used with champions who have strong attack damage boosts, such as Fiora'sRiposte.
