The Gladiator's Bane is a Unique Wire Fleece.

While it does not give bonuses to resistances, the Gladiator's Bane does nullify freezing and halves Poison length. While it possesses some of the highest "attacker takes damage" and damage reduction stats in the game, by the time it can be found and worn, such damage is of negligible value. Its faster hit recovery bonus, however, is among the best in the game.

While not very useful to many player characters, the Gladiator's Bane is a pretty good hireling armor. Since hireling deaths often occur via Poison Damage during a Baal run, this armor helps keep them alive. It can be a nice armor to use at the start of ladder because it can be acquired cheaply, making it a decent substitute until the player obtains an ethereal elite armor with either the Fortitude or Treachery Rune Words.
