Got these in PoK for 500 plat the other day, dude was firm and wanted nothing to do with my hageling. Still I am quite happy with them for that price, also they have really decent ac for a ranger feet item.

How to use these?

Could someone please explain to me how to use these boots. This is my first item with this tough of buff. How do I activate them , how to use on others. How to shut them off. I am currently wearing General Coterie boots as a lvl 30 pally. What are the negatives to these (other than looks). Whast spells wont work with these. Can I just shut them off to use other spells. Seems great to have when I am out in the middle of nowhere and buffs run out. Will it work with holy armor. Thank you very much. Megapec (cazic thule) Paid 100 plat.
RE: How to use these?
# Mar 03 2004 at 8:09 PM Rating: Decent
These are a right click item. Unfortunately most other buffs over write this buff so it is useless for a pally of any lvl. Good thing you paid 100 pp for them. Put them on your alt warrior when you get better

Just a mild warning on these boots as far as looks go.. they are hideous lol. Worth it... but hideous.

I just put them on my ranger (who's armor previous to this had been dyed a very nice shade of blue.) only to discover that these boots.. while great in every other respect.. look like they have no graphic at all save the ugly green shade they give your chars feet...So I had a ranger in shiny light blue plate leggings.. with ugly green barefeet sticking out.. and they are NOT dyeable.. the foot slot had already been dyed a matching light blue.. it totally did not take the dye... I tried to re-dye and it STILL would not change color.. so.. I am now dyeing my beautiful armor.. dark green *sigh LOL. (I have logged out and logged back in.. left the game entirely.. everything.. it is not a glitch.)

So if you want these nice boots with a lvl 1 clicky.. be prepared to deal with the ugly factor and change your dye accordingly. (unless you like darkish army green lol.)

Talk about lucky.. someone on our server had cheap spider fur gloves.. i was thinking of buying them to re-sell.. I asked him how much he wanted (Starting the whole haggling process) when he said he was about to page me and ask if I would trade for my stein of moggok. I sat there for a second a little unbelieving.. when next thing I know he is offering 2 pairs of spider fur gloves.. AND THESE BOOTS... just for that stein.. course I stopped pausing and said yes right away LOL... my baby lvl 3 ranger will be very happy ;)

For those of you that read /gu comics, this story will seem oddly familiar. My friend was searching in the bazaar on a computer next to me when I asked him to look up the prize of a Lodizal Shell Shield (I told him to just type in Lodizal.) The query spit out 3 lodizal shell shields (1 for 3k, 1 for 3.5k, and another for 4k.) and 2 Lodizal shell boots, one selling for 950pp and one selling for a whopping 100pp. That's right, the man missed a zero and was selling them for a whopping ONE HUNDRED PLATINUM. Needless to say we got them ASAP and are now happily enjoying free turtle skin. (His Spirit armor is actually better at level 35 (friend = pally)) How's that for a deal?

You know I understand that it is a good deal, but I personally have made buys like that and then waited for the person to come back from afk and give the item back to him/her for what I paid several times. Just think how much it would suck if you screwed up and someone took you for a 900 Plat loss. You can put the traders name on your friends list even if they are afk. Yeah go ahead and call me a sucker, but I try to make the gaming experiance something to be enjoyed. Oh yeah, one last thing...Karma baby, Karma :)

Nice Boots for Ranger

I managed to grab these boots for about 600pp on the FV server.
My level 20 Ranger is loving them. Turtle skin is a great AC buff when I am soloing because it stacks with the skin buff lineup.
The stats are these boots are very decent for the price. 7 strength!
The only minor complaint I have is how the graphics look ( on luclin female woodelf model). I thought it would have at least a chain look to it, but nope, they're your birthday shoes. I've got my feet slot dyed so it looks like my ranger has green ballerina shoes on. Eck, that is not the look I'm going for! I can't imagine kicking a bad guy and not breaking a few toes. But the boots are so nice I will set all fashion sense aside and continue dancing around the baddies.

Did you know that this is a lvl 14 Shaman AC buff?...obviously it is not as good as a cleric buff...also did you know if the Cleric is going to give you a better AC buff like greater than lvl 14 then it will overtake the buff, which means you dont have to remove it.

Just an observation: While shopping for a new feet slot item I was satisfied with the stats of Crystal Chitin Boots (Ac20 Str7 Dex3) for my warrior. The price listed on this site is 4k. These boots are ac14, str7, hp20 and an Ac Buff at a listed price of nearly 1k. Anyone see my point yet? The triggered Ac buff puts the ac well over the 20ac provided by the CC I am going to grab these over CC boots. hope that observation helps any others out.

turtle skin is not stackable with others AC buffs (such as cleric ones)
so you shall loose AC when grouped... is it what you really want ? :)

LOL...warriors solo?? must be on some serious drugs

Heh, I can understand that its been nearly a year since you posted Kayyn, but even a year ago my warrior alt was in his 30s soloing Tribals in Dawnshroud. He solo'd the levels leading up to 30s and is still soloing today. This solo process has been made so much easier with the introduction of the lvl 10 warrior regen discipline, increased HP regeneration while sitting, and the ability to bind wounds up to 70% I have found that a second or third player just slows me down =)
Hope you try to play a solo warrior sometime to find out the benefits for yourself.
Oh... and this is also post weapon nerf, so its not because I'm wearing 50k pp worth of armor and stuff.

Since when is a warrior a solo class?? Hehe that's pretty hillarious.

Saw these boots at 1k in the Bazaar on Bertox, which intrigued me so I looked 'em up on my other computer. A great shopping stratgey I must say, since I like to read about an item before I make a decision. Think I'll pass on 1k for these.

A good warrior can solo things... If they are hunting loots anyway. As far as getting exp... the downtime on bandaging or sitting makes it pretty much a waste of time

Aye. Admittedly you'd need to fork out a bit of cash. But there's no reason why a War with right-clicky heals (ie: cobalt breastplate) and some nice hp regen items couldn't solo. I think it'd be feasible.

I can understand your frustration. Nothing like a greedy jerk to spoil your day. Was hunting goblins in High Hold and had a ninja looter SK, took 20 consecitive kills. When the Pg Fragment I needed dropped, I asked for it and this was the reply "How much will you give me for it?". Gutt-less leader wouldn't do a dang thing. Just want to add if you were the leader, kick the greedy #%@ out of the group. I think they should instatute a auto-loot command like anarchy usess. If not that im thinking of starting a web page with lists of chronic ninja looters.

Was in WW trying to find certain named dragons to kill. There were seven of us when all of a sudden a guild member in guild chat said Lodi is up. After a quick ponder, we decided to port to IC and hunt him down. All seven of us went a huntin, miracously our druid finally got him on track, snared it, gave us loc and we proceeded on our killing spree.

He hits pretty dam hard, has quite a few hp's, but was quickly slowed by our 60 chanter. He became well managed after.

He dropped the boots, (two pair), shield, and fourth war plans. (i believe that is the name of it).

Look forward to using the boots.

I've been kicking around the idea of buying these just for an extra buff but they would be worthless if they don't stack well.

Will they stack with cleric AC buffs (I.E. Shield of words/bulwark of faith)?

Will they stack with the shielding line of spells (I.E. Major shielding from my blood ember BP)?

Will it stack with ranger buffs (Call of Earth and Strength of Nature)? I'm fairly confident this one is a yes ;)
Ok, I'll shut up now.

I like these boots, got them as a concelation prize as I did not win the Club like I wanted. I put them on my SK as I already have both Cobalt & Skyshrine Warrior boots. The clickable AC sure is nice as a SK =0) esp since I solo mostly with my SK.

Just kinda shocked that these boots aren't Monky usable. Now I'm not one of those everything light is a monk item, but I just think they should be for how good they are for a monk. Maybe it would be "too powerful" for a monk, I dunno as I dont play one, just my thoughts tho.

I havnt tried clicking these on anyone else yet, but I'll give that a shot soon and let ya know what I find out (unless I forget, hehe)

Hello everyone. Quick question: is the Turtle Skin effect right clickable on anyone? So if I'm in a group, I can use these to give the effect anyone? Or I could just wander around NFP aimlessly giving it to people? Thanks!

My 25 warrior twink casts fine with these, though the effect does not stack with the spirit armor line of spells. Also, the ac posts on this board are all over the place, so my guess is that the ac boost may depend on the level of the char casting the spells. In practice I only got about 5-7ac boost on my 25.

Ok, does Turtle skin stack with shield of words at least? It's a lvl14 shammy buff. Will group with shammy alot after 50, does that make this effect pointless? DW boots is 21AC, this one is 14AC, 7Stren, 20HP. I'd take 7AC rather than 7stren and 20HP for Pally. Besides DW Boots are way cheaper than this one, just my 2cp.
RE: Turtle Skin
# Nov 26 2001 at 7:22 PM Rating: Default
The effect does 7ac, at least for me at 40, so that would make these just as good as DW boots. Maybe the effect on the boots makes up for the str.

Full Cobalt at 55 is not that hard to attain in high level guilds farming quest armor in ToV. Most guilds hand down the Cobalt to lower level guild members as they fill their quest armor from Kael.

#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 22 2001 at 7:48 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) These items shouldn't go to monks. Monks don't need AC if they have a good group. Monks aren't tanks they're bascially manaless nukers. They are intended to be used for pulling and damage output; not taking hits. If these had agi buffs and lower AC yea I can see it being monk suitable, but a monk getting 24 ac +7 str and 20 hp off boots is too good and you know it.

Monks can't use these boots, however we do need AC and str and hps. I am a monk and I have yet to see anything less than a warrior tank (Pal, rang, rogue forget it) at least two to three levels higher then me taunt anything off me for more than a few seconds. Monks pull, get agroed on, get doted, nuked and overall abused more than any other class. Verant keeps our hp low for class balancing purposes, and therefore monks should get as high ac and hps items as they possibly can. Haste items just makes it harder for warriors to taunt monsters off of us. Give me AC/hps!

Ummm... It is very difficult to take the taunt off of an equal lvl. and similarly equipped Pally or SK ( unless they actually mean too, in which case the argument is pointless.. ). Those two classes are the masters of holding agro, Either Anon's posting of siphon, shadow, enfeeble, heart flutter or the Pally FoL, stun, yaulp, stun... if those two classes are the MA and need to hold the agro, they will.

You need to understand that if you are getting the agro as a Monk, YOU are doing something wrong, you don't need more AC, you need to reevaluate your play and adjust accordingly.

Getting the agro is the MA's job, holding less agro than the MA is the group/raids job... why do you think that Monks have FD? It's to let the defensive tank regain agro if you **** off the mob enough to start looking your way ( great for pulling as well, you aren't one trick ponies after all :) ).

Just my thoughts on the subject, of course this is no flame, just my observations... play well and have fun all.

Also, if you are getting blasted by spells while pulling, you need to invest in resist gear, not ac/hp.

As a Cavalier of the 51st Shield, I must also comment on my taunting abilities. Fully equipped members of my profession have these taunting abilities at their disposal:

Flash of Light
Holy Might (stun with 60 DD )
Flame of Light (125 DD drop spell)
Divine Might (quest spell 65 DD proc to all attacks while active)

With a decent dexterity such as given from a shaman, Divine Might gives a good blast. I have had it go off 3 times in a row, or every 3 or 4 swings.
Those that know their job, what it is, etc, know how to do it well. Leave the critizing of paladins alone. We have a specific job in a group. We can save the enchanter or cleric like no one can, or take aggro off of the warrior a few moments for them to be healed. Once we get group heal, we are mana conservers for the clerics during down time...even during a fight if need be. Sometimes a gheal or sheal is all that is needed from us for a cleric to med a bit more for a better heal incoming soon.
I was main tank in Hands and did well with 2 bards, druid, cleric. Aggro was on me when the Sentry of Sathir came up. That was one tough fight with it hitting for 145. After everything was done, one of the dead mobs had cobalt boots which I won. I traded for Lodizal boots to an ally guild member.

Reason why a rogue doesn't taunt off you for more than a few seconds. We have this thing called Evade. It works well, almost like how your FD would work if you knew how to use it.

#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 22 2001 at 9:10 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) WTF is everyone's problem with Mend? I'd rather have 25 % more HPs than Mend. Would make me a much better tank.

High level mend > 25% hps.

And FD does work in group. Did you ever get the message when you tried to FD: "Sorry, you can't use this ability. You are in a group."

Then you say "WTF I can't FD when in group cause then the cleric/chanter will die"

Then I say "Uh. Your cleric should heal you, and chanter can mez. Besides, if you tank in a group on higher levels, you will die anyways."

And grouping/raiding is what you do? And you don't use FD? hahaha my god you are not supposed to take aggro, and if you do then FD to make it go away! Also you should PULL! Tag! Etc. But I guess ... if you don't FD in groups or on raids, noone wants you.

You have a cleric then. Use him/her.

hermm what are you smoking? a ranger half your lvl could taunt a mob off you. not 45 i can out taunt a lvl60 monk with epic. Its easy. press taunt, cast snare, press taunt, cast flamelick, press taunt, cast stinging swarm, press taunt, random nukes and re aply would have to kill the thing before getting it off me. I friggin held aggro on mobs in CoM while grouped with a wizard who was nuking as soon as i got to our camp. only when i really wasn't trying or we got a n add did he get attacked...and even if it did start twards him i would have it before it even got halfway to him. You obviously have no clue what rangers can do. And never grouped with many who knew what they were doing. We are the ULTIMATE peelers....any smart caster knows and loves a good ranger....ohh and btw i can't think of any other class that can hold the aggro through a fight while a wizard is cahin nuking from other class can...SKs are close but still rangers would win. And btw rangers need ac/hps more than monks do...heck rogues have higher defensive skill cap than us...
#bobjohnson, Posted: Nov 11 2001 at 7:16 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) id rather heal a warrior, sk, pallie, cause rangers are little ******* that cant take hits as well "can u say platemail" get this out of your head rangers, u are good pullers then take the aggro off of u and put on tank cause it really sucks being down all the time healing ure ***. just because you can get alot of aggro doesnt mean that you can..**** i can get aggro w/ any casting character..doesnt mean that my wizard is goin to start tanking.

My main is a 41 ranger.. but i have been playin for awhile.. many classes seem to be able to taunt ok.. as long as they know how with what tools they have.. I spent a few hours in Mm last night with a 54 wiz.. was getin some help getting granite.. He only had a few problems.. and when he did, my job was to peel, and it was very easy.. A snare/taunt/flamelick/taunt icetooth claws/crystalized blade/call of sky.. definately kept them on me.. Damage isnt always the major factor in getting a mobs attention.. its how bad you **** them off so i have seen.. and makin them walk slow and lowerin their ac a little seems to do that fine ;)Oh ya the boots.. very nice.. lol

sk is ten times better at taunting. Taunt it, siphon str shadow vortex,wave of enfeblement, heart flutter, etc. and you will be taking hits like a *************.

Actually I only see these going to monks or bards. They are **** fine monk boots without the buff, which if I remember right doesn't stack with clerics' AC buffs. And bards' spell stacking is coded a little differently so they can stack certain right click items over spells that don't normally :). The other classes listed won't need the buff in a group and should have boots with at least a little better stats by level 55+ :)

If your an Sk and wanna keep aggro just debuff the mobs ac. Maybe followed up by a darkness spell or disease cloud. Works for me.

Only a newbie could believe:

"These boots are too much AC for a Monk"

"Monks get BEST equipment in the game"

"These were only designed for Chain classes"

These boots should be all but "pure" casters imho, and all races thereof.

Not that it matters but are these boot green? I have a full suit of Ivy Etched Armor less the boots and it would be cool if they went with the set. But I would not care if they were HOT PINK with those stats. Like I said just wondering. :)

RE: Nice boots!
# Mar 07 2001 at 3:59 AM Rating: Default
Yes they are a very dark shade of green. The funny part is that you can STILL see green boots when in wolf or werewolf form. Easier to find your corpse that way in a pile of wolves I suppose.

Turtle Skin is a triggered level 14 shaman ac buff. It can be cast on others and stacks with the skin-like series.

hehe these r sweet boots with ac vs wt rayio and they dont let monks wear them?? there the only class i can think of that would want these the most lol... if u can kill the turtle u r already in Planar\Kurnak armor plus or minus things here and there.. ughhhh i am not a monk but i feel for them and think verant should re-think this item's class compatability. just my 2cp ;) later

Aye Iagree..
I was so glad when I saw the stats, and I thought with the 0,1 weight they are ought to be monk wearable. Stupid Verant. These culd be the allmost perfect monkie boots.

***** that, Monks get like the BEST things in the **** game its a good thing they didnt get to wear these.....Just look at all the monk equip and the war equip...Monks get way better stuff, you monks to whine about EVERYTHING until u get it your way. Just look at that Ton Po Bo's staff of Understanding....Its godly just just one thing, there are alot more monk stuff that is godly out there, they need to come out with some good war stuff

Too perfect. Just because something is light, doesn't mean is should be monk wearable. The AC is way high for a monk item. There's only a couple items that are even close to that AC, one drops off the efreet in Velketor's lab and weighs 3.0, the other drops in Veeshan's peek and has haste as well as 0 weight.

Also note that it is only wearable by chain or better based melee classes, so those are the classes the boots were designed for.

I almost had one going for 12k on Tarew Marr. The seller cast it on me and it boosted my AC my 10.
