[balance] make chaos knights start with thick gauntlets

With no possibility to buy from ratling traders, poison hands is really harsh. I think thick gauntlets fit a chaos knight?

Perhaps a slightly more complex implementation could have the Chaos Knight given equipment dependent on their starting corruptions.

So, for instance, if starting with Poison Hands, let the Chaos Knight also start with Thick Gauntlets. It makes conceptual sense, since if you have been living your life with poison hands, you're probably going to already have stuff to allow you to eat.

Other classes start with thick gauntlets, so it makes sense for the Chaos Knight to get it too. Dependence on corruption is an unnecessary complexity.

What i really meant is that i would like chaos knights get stuff dependant on race, like:
-dwarves and orcs - thick gauntlets.
-hurthligs - don't know maybe ring of tp control -although that is tad too much.
-elves some sort of mithril visor blocking aura corruption which eventually makes shopkeepers hostile
-gnomes some magic gloves blocking mana absorption from wands....

Or give them option like hunt Kranach o behalf from crime lord to obtain thick gauntlets. Well, that i just thought off but it could work I think.

Hmm, having Kranach always drop thick gauntlets would be good. It would explain that his huge poison attack is due to corruption.

You meant Hotz guy, right?

Chaos knights (the monster) have a chance of dropping thick gauntlets in addition to their eternium gear. So it kind of makes sense for the PC to start with some too...

Yes, whoops. Hotz always dropping thick gauntlets would be good for the game in general - a guaranteed way of dealing with poison hands, but on a semi-powerful boss.

Since a PC entering the Drakalor Chain doesn't come naked, we can assume he has prepared for the journey. I can't imagine a person with corruptions like teleport/poison hands or some new stuff (e.g. mouth tentacles) starting an adventure w/o some countermeasures.

Edit: I think a situation when player hits Shift+Q (or at least has a strong desire to) right after character creation screen is a design flaw. Well, I didn't quit when I generated a trollish CK with both poison hands and teleport, but then again I do have some experience; guys that'll buy the game on Steam - who knows.

Chaos knights now flat out receive thick gauntlets.
