Changed picture, i think it's more visible here
Thunderfist's Brass Knuckles alt.jpg
And they come with a empty inscription slot (mine did anyways) Z4nd 16:30, 24 August 2007 (CDT)

A bit of trivia that could be added: the name "Thunderfist" may come from the character known as Corin Thunderfist from C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia. Corin received the surname via his proficiency at boxing. --Ebonywolf21

is it possible to add adrenalin + inscription? and will it work during boxing?

I'm wondering if the dagger mastery requirement will remain after the preview event - it seems rather odd that items for a multi-class activity would favour one specific character class --SnogratUser Snograt signature.png 01:13, 25 August 2007 (CDT)
I dont think it favours the class as the damage you do is set according to the skills u use. I believe however that daggers were the only 2 handed weapon that would fit the genre of brass knuckles, and decided to make it so u could use it as an assassin. Im not complaining as I kinda like the skin, and it gives my sin heroes a dagger set 2 use. Luminarus 09:06, 25 August 2007 (CDT)

Niftyness... you can't salvage this item normally, but if you stick a modifier on it, it gives you the option to salvage the modifier off. (You don't get the normal "Salvage for crafting materials" option.) I've currently got myself a sweet set of Thunterfist's Brass Knuckles of Fortitude. I'm surprised they didn't make them do Blunt damage though, seems like a no-brainer... --GEO-logo.png Jioruji Derako.> 08:32, 25 August 2007 (CDT)

So they can't be destroyed when salvaging? --SairRanger-icon-small.png 17:54, 25 August 2007 (CDT)
I haven't actually salvaged anything off, so I don't know. And I'm not quite sure if I want to risk it with my only pair, currently. --GEO-logo.png Jioruji Derako.> 19:06, 25 August 2007 (CDT)
Well yes, that's why I was asking first ;p --SairRanger-icon-small.png 12:47, 26 August 2007 (CDT)
Seems like they don't get destroyed while salvaging... I salvaged my Furious and Brawns over Brains mod off it without any problem even though it said there was a 44% chance of breaking. 70.231.248.130 00:32, 4 September 2007 (CDT)
This is no longer true. I salvaged an inscription off of mine and they were destroyed. Xylia 19:19, 12 September 2007 (CDT)

The skill damage IS altered by these, I sometimes do 100 damage (with 12 Dagger Mastery) with the Uppercut skill. --84.24.206.123 11:54, 25 August 2007 (CDT)

I highly recommend a Furious mod on these, as it helps build up the other boxing skills faster. Works great for me. ~ J.Kougar UserJKougar sig.gif 17:21, 25 August 2007 (CDT)

How about.....-5 Energy 15% damage mod? To help the stand up skill. VendingMachine 00:55, 27 August 2007 (CDT)

I put a -5 Energy, 15% damage mod... I still started with 15 Energy instead of 10. 70.231.248.130 23:18, 3 September 2007 (CDT)

The perfect mods would be Furious and Fortitude with Brawn over Brains inscription TheDrunkenHobo

Fortitude doesn't matter in the tournament, because your health is always set to 500 no matter what (that overrides any health bonuses or minuses). And +armor won't matter against the brawling skills. Suffix mod doesn't really matter at all, basically (not for boxing at least). --GEO-logo.png Jioruji Derako.> 08:51, 27 August 2007 (CDT)
But your opponents don't use boxing skills. They use their regular skills. Sirocco 15:43, 27 August 2007 (CDT)
hmm, guess it all depends. I think your armor might get reset while brawling too, otherwise caster classes would be at a disadvantage; we can test it out when the game's released (equip a weapon with no armor boost, then switch to a weapon with an armor boost and see if that damage changes). Sundering might be worth testing too, even, and I already know Vampiric works well (guildmate didn't know he needed to use the Knuckles, so he just beat everyone using a vampiric scythe). --GEO-logo.png Ĵĩôřũĵĩ Đēŗāķō.>.cнаt^ 10:55, 30 August 2007 (CDT)
Armor doesn't get reset, I took significantly more damage with my rit in the extravaganza than I did with my warrior.

Is it just me or does it seem wrong that these are slashing instead of bashing damage? It just doesn't make sense lol. I guess they didn't want to give sins the ability to do bashing damage or something.

You mean Blunt? Yeah, I was complaining about that the moment I got them. Warriors get a Blunt sword, why not 'Sins? --GEO-logo.png Jioruji Derako.> 01:45, 28 August 2007 (CDT)
The worst part of all I think is that, because they do "slashing" damage, they make the slashing sound when you hit people. It's very.. disillusioning. I have to wonder why they changed the damage type at all instead of just leaving it as piercing if it couldn't be blunt 24.247.248.93 20:57, May 20, 2010 (UTC)

i am doing only 99 damage with a vampiric(3/-1) Vengance is mine of dagger mastery in a uppercut with dagger mastery 12 with my monk....i also recommend a sundering or furius prefix...haven't tested the Brawlsoverbrain [crlshn]

So it's proven that furious works? What about zealous and sundering? Has anyone tested? Zeek Aran 18:06, 17 September 2007 (CDT)
has anyone ever used elemental mods (ebon, fiery, shocking,icy) in brawling? Zero kyos

Unique?[edit source]

This item is currently listed as a unique item, probably because of it's name, but It is gold and moddable. Any thoughts on whether it deserves to be listed as unique? I personally think it should be taken out of the EotN Uniques list. Bo Fairfield AMP 10:08, 23 September 2007 (CDT)

It doesn't drop from anywhere, right? If it doesn't drop from chests/enemies, and only from one place, it fits 'unique' I would think. Zeek Aran 02:38, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
I think this is more of a "Special" category... we don't list weapons like the Tengu Daggers or Destroyer Daggers as unique, even though they're gained through special means and don't drop. --GEO-logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 14:04, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
Since neither The Bison Cup nor Zehtuka's Horn are listed as Uniques, I don't see why Thunderfist's should be either. Felix Omni Signature.png 14:09, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Replacement if you lose it?[edit source]

I have somehow managed to lose these. Is it possible to reacquire them somehow? Is it possible to create something equal? --50.46.159.144 07:54, 19 August 2011 (UTC)

You can try to talk to Leroy Stoneking, from who you got them in the first place. Otherwise, you can always trade em with players, or get another goon to finish the quests. Arnout aka The Emperors Angel 08:52, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
Nope, these are a one-time quest reward per character, and there is no equivalent. But like Arnout said, you can always complete the quest with other characters. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 14:02, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
