Boots are too rare

Post by tangar » Wed Mar 02, 2016 2:18 pm

I've already told about it at my streams ~6 months ago.. :) Still wanna clear this for myself.

If you would check http://www.tomenet.eu/pstores.php you could see what I'm talking about. There are not much cheap boots (<100k), but loads of gloves, hats, cloacks, body armours.. It seems that boots doesn't drop @ low-middle levels (1-35). I barely remember when I get any good boots at all for all my playing TomeNet (not much, but still).

Are boots supposed to be the most rarest piece of equipment in-game?

Its not really logical, cause to create boots is much more simple then to forge an body armour... (if we are speaking about RP aspects).

It's hard to find good boots because for anyone who doesn't have ground ID the only realistic way to clear a pit full of valuables is to melt all the loot and pick up the remaining artifacts which are of course unable to be burned. That aside it's not only limited to boots, great gloves and cloaks are also rare.

As I wrote in first message, I see problem with boots for 1-35 lvl characters. At such levels there are no possibility to "burn vaults", and also not much ppl clear vaults at such levels. So its not a cause. I speak about NE mode firstly.

So if you would check players market you would see that all other slots have plenty of items; boots isn't.

It's just that there are only 2 good types of boots- elvenkind and speed, they are 30+ lvl, and they are so rare that it's no surprise that players don't want to sell them.

The way to get good boots as far as I know is to save up your money then look around for a secret footware shop in a dungeon.

Yep, but its also high-end solution. We are speaking about 1-35 lvl: low-mid levels :)

Stealth boots at low levels, then mirkwood boots. Mirkies maybe should be made less rare? There are also dwarven endurance boots, maybe those also should be more common?

Mirk boots are really common as rewards from the Dungeon Keeper event. Otherwise, boots of FA are great for low level characters.

I didnt meet any pair of Mirkwood boots in my TomeNets' life :)

FA boots good for lvl 15+.. But not for 25+. There are loads of powerful stuff in other categories of equipment for 20-35 lvls bracket, but boots are lack of it.

Funny, that at 35+ lvl the most rare items become hats %) It seems players collecting only ESP hats at high-lvl. Quite hard to find one with blindness resistance+other resist.
