According to Kamaljiori, the Titanstone Knuckles were taken from the brutalized corpse of their proud owner and worn by a terrible half-giant turned tyrant in Westruun. According to Grog Strongjaw, his uncle Kevdak possessed the Titanstone Knuckles as one of his two prized weapons. It is unknown if Kevdak understood their true origin or power. After Vox Machina successfully dispatched Kevdak, the large gauntlets were passed to Grog.
The Titanstone Knuckles became exalted after Grog just barely defeated Earthbreaker Groon within the Trial Forge, the temple of Kord in Vasselheim. Two beams of light, similar to lightning strikes, came down from the ceiling of the temple, hitting the gauntlets and causing them to glow.
