Since when did they get so expensive? :O i checked basil out of curiosity and they go for almost 28 mil x_x i remember me and my friend were making a bunch of noobs just to do the quest and get some gloves xD, that was wayyyy back though. So i checked my mule and i still have one pair :o I've been wanting glitter gloves but i just recently bought my zhelm so I'm poor atm ._. should i save them and make my own glitter gloves?
It's not the fact that it's a work glove that makes it expensive, it's the stats on the work glove.
Weapon Attack is the most influential factor in damage, therefore many people scroll their gloves for it. Clean, attackless work gloves are essentially worthless. However, as the attack value goes up, value increases exponentially.
I'll use Khaini rates as an example: 3 att - roughly 1 mil 6 att - 10 mil 9 att - 40 mil 12 att - 160 mil 15 att - 800 mil
A perfect, non-chaosed 21 attack brown work glove would probably be worth 2 characters' inventories of max meso (4.2 billion).
