This is Friendly Gauntlet. I got it from a Menagerist Goblin – possibly during Season 6 of Diablo III. This pet picks up gold for the player. I was playing a Witch Doctor, with a ton of pets that will attack enemies for me. It’s possible the corpse of the Menagerist Goblin got lost in the mob.
The flavor text for Friendly Gauntlet says: The tic-tic-tic of little metal fingers accompanies you on your journeys.
Imagine the sounds of this little, armored, disembodied hand, as it follows you around. The pet, like all pets, collects gold for the player. I think there are only two classes who would be especially interested in Friendly Gauntlet – the Witch Doctor and the Necromancer. Or, at the very least, neither of them would be creeped out about it.
Diablo Wiki says Friendly Gauntlet is a possible reference to Thing from The Addams Family. Or, it could be a reference to the Wallmasters from Legend of Zelda.
Kill a Menagerist Goblin, and it will drop a pet for you. The pet appears in your bag and looks like a Legendary item.
Friendly Gauntlet: This severed hand looks suspiciously alive.
If you would like to equip the new pet that the Menagerist Goblin dropped, you must go back to town and visit the Mystic. Head for the mirror and click on it – and all of your existing pets will be revealed.
My Witch Doctor did exactly that, and brought along several of his grotesque combat pets with him. The Templar and the Mystic appear to be absolutely horrified!
Friendly Gauntlet is a small pet. Witch Doctor for size.
