Boots of Speed
« on: July 09, 2012, 06:31:14 AM »
Hmmm... I bought my wizard some boots of speed, but his movement stays at 6, while everybody else's rises to 24.

Are boots of speed not working for magic-users?

A wizard would have to be pretty encumbered to have a movement rate of 6 to start with.  Try dropping some stuff and see if the movement rate increases.

They work for me.  I've never seen a problem with mages using them.

Some days it just doesn't pay to gnaw through the straps.

Unless the items have been hacked it works for all types. However, if you have two items readied for your feet, or another item which it might not stack with magically, that might be the problem.

Also, it might be possible that dispel magic removed the speed temporarily from the boots. Try unreadying them and then readying them again.

Wizards often have encumbrance problems, especially if carrying loads of darts.

If nothing works check to see if the items have been alterred. Boots of Speed are Items.dat record 45.

I assume the question is about FRUA.  If it isn't, it should probably be redirected toward the Dungeon Craft portion of the boards.

No, FRUA. I assumed this was a FRUA thread. But now that the forum name has changed, and there is no FAQ for DC, I wonder if it is for both.

Maybe if we knew what game design was being played we could check it out?  ???

The name change didn't really change the layout of the forums.  The main forums are still primarily for FRUA, while DC has its own section.  If additional boards are needed for DC (like a FAQ board), someone will let me know and I'll add it (this is where people should be writing me PMs so I can make these things happen).

Anyway, it seems like we need more information to figure out what's going on with the Boots of Speed.

Not sure how much use it will get, but I think it would be great if you could create a Dungeon Craft FAQ board. Thanks Ben!

The darts were the answer. The greedy wizard carried over 200 darts, probably a bit much... I dropped most of them, and the effect of the boots of speed kicked in.  :)
