What are the Boots of the Comet?

Yet another question here from y'all,

Question=Hey, I've been wondering about something. From prospector zeke in wc, he sells these boots of the comet items. It gives +7%, and then this picture of a boot with wings. What's that? O. o


Ohhhh! You mean these items:



and



Those, my friends, are the new run speed enhancing boots. Buy those and you'll run either 4% or 8% faster than your friends in their regular old normal boots. They were barely released during one of the last patches, so they are fairly new. I really like the look on those too.

ZOOOOMMMMMM!!!!!

***WARNING!!!! One of my readers notified me that these may not be working as intended, please stay tuned to see if this is the case WARNING!!!!****

Happy Dueling!

If the boots are supposed to give you faster running, then they arent' working. I just bought the Boots of the Comet and I don't run any faster with them than I do with my regular boots...

They look cool, they just don't seem to work. Waste of 5140 crowns... :-(

Brahm,

Then that is VERY disappointing. Mind meeting up for a foot race so I can record it and make the right people aware of this problem?

That hasn't been the case for me . I got the Boots of the Comet as a Malistaire drop and they work just fine. I have even raced my friends and seen that they definitely work. Perhaps only crown bought Boots of the Comet aren't working as they are supposed to or maybe Brahm's situation is a rare, unfortunate one.

Thanks for posting that, Joseph! Good to know they have worked as intended for someone.

Brahm Ravenblood said...

Yes, I can meet up with you. when and where?

Ok, I did another timing run and all I am seeing a slight increase in speed for the Boots of the Comet. The slight increase is NOT worth the crown expense in my opinion...

The area I timed the run in was back and forth from the Library to the fountain in Wizard City and the boots shaved off about 1 second.

Now that reagent farming has us running everywhere and back again . . . I'm wondering if these would now be worth the crowns purchase? maybe?

remember guys, its only 8 or 4%, which is not a great deal of speed. But they do still make you go faster (Malistare drop)
