Orcish boots are a type of non-magical boots that appear in EvilHack and Hack'EM. Orcish boots are orcish-made versions of the iron shoes from NetHack, which are called "dwarvish boots" in those variants. They have a base object material of iron, and appear as crude boots when unidentified.


Uruk-hai and goblin-captains have a 13 chance of being generated with orcish boots; orc-captains have a 12 chance of being generated with Uruk-hai armor, giving them an effective 16 chance of generating with the boots.

Orcish boots can be created at a forge by combining an orcish short sword and gauntlets.


When worn, orcish boots grant 1 base AC before enchantment and object material adjustments, along with a bonus point of AC for orc player characters and other orcs that wear them.

Orcish boots can be combined with an orcish helm at a forge to create an orcish shield.
