Hands of the High Templar is a pair of unique Crusader GlovesCrusader GlovesArmour: 121

, exclusively dropped by Sirus, Awakener of Worlds. When dropped, the gloves will be non-corrupted, and will not have any Vaal implicits or white sockets.

Normally, corrupting an item makes it impossible to apply further currency to it, aside from changing sockets with the crafting bench. This item offers an exception to this rule, making it possible to corrupt it over and over again until the corruption outcome turns it into a rare item, at which point it is "bricked" (destroyed) and loses the "Can have up to 5 Implicit Modifiers while Item has this Modifier" mod and therefore all accumulated, powerful corruption effects.

Therefore this item can become incredibly powerful and versatile, through up to 5 Vaal implicits and white sockets. But every corruption carries the risk of turning it into a rare item, removing this unique property.

Mechanics

Even after Corrupted, players can still craft the gloves using the following methods, and more:

  • Using Blessed OrbBlessed OrbStack Size: 20Randomises the numeric values of the implicit modifiers of an itemRight click this item then left click another item to apply it.

Multiple Implicits

The Hands of the High Templar is the only pair of gloves in the game that can have multiple rare Vaal implicits, crafted on the item using Vaal OrbVaal OrbStack Size: 10Corrupts an item, modifying it unpredictablyRight click this item then left click an item to corrupt it. Corrupted items cannot be modified again.

s.

Every time players use a Vaal Orb on the gloves, it has an evenly split chance to (25% chance):

  1. No effect (other than adding the corrupted property if not already present).
  2. Changing one or more sockets to white sockets.
  3. Adding a special Vaal implicit OR replacing an existing one if there are already 5.
  4. Bricking the gloves by converting it into a rare item (sockets, links and six random affixes are randomized). This outcome removes all accumulated implicits and white sockets, while making further corruptions impossible.

It is even possible to reroll implicit Vaal modifiers by further corrupting this item when it already has 5 of them.[1] In case of a Vaal OrbVaal OrbStack Size: 10Corrupts an item, modifying it unpredictablyRight click this item then left click an item to corrupt it.
