Water walking boots are tricky to identify, because walking on water to see whether you sink is dangerous!


If snow boots are boots of fumbling do they still make you not slip on ice? if riding boots are fumbling boots do they help you ride stuff?

Water walking boots aren't so bad to identify. If you have a pair of boots with base cost 50, they don't speed you up, and you can't jump, then you know they're water walking. Lotte 07:09, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
There is furthermore a guaranteed pair of water walkers in Vlad's Tower.--Ray Chason 14:02, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Steel Boots

I came across a pair of steel boots in SLASH'EM recently, which identified as an elven boots.

SLASH'EM uses steel boots as a randomized appearance for magical boots, in place of buckled boots. The actual identities of magical boots in SLASH'EM are all the same, just for some reason one of the randomized appearances is different. Steel boots are not actually metal, but rather are the appearance associated with kicking boots (which are metal) in the source code. That doesn't mean that steel boots will be kicking boots any more often than any other type of boot, by the way, it's just a thing in the source code. -Ion frigate 23:53, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
