Wondrous item, Rare (requires attunement by a monk)
These silver gloves are composed of silk and platinum strands woven together. A star symbol is visible on each hand.
As a bonus action, the user can expend 5 or more ki points and unleash a barrage of unarmed strikes on a target within melee range. The target must make a Dexterity saving throw (based on the user's Ki save DC), taking full damage on a failed save or half on a successful one.
The damage is calculated as follows:
(ki spent)*(Martial Arts die) + (ki spent)*(Dex modifier)
Thus, if a level 6 Monk with +4 Dexterity uses 5 ki for this attack, they would deal
5d6+20 magical bludgeoning damage (thanks to Ki-Empowered Strikes).
