A pair of boots.

Boots are a form of armour worn on a character's feet slot. They provide a small amount of AC (especially when enchanted, max +2) and can have any of the following egos:

  • Flight: Activate to fly indefinitely, deactivate at will, costs food to activate
  • Stealth: +50 stealth
  • Running: Reduces movement delay by 1, stacks with other speed effects


If you have a rank 3 Hooves mutation or the Talons mutation, you may not wear boots. The following species can never wear boots:

Nagas and centaur may wear barding in their feet slot instead.


The jumping ego was removed in 0.16, which allowed players to make a jump attack.

The boots of the spider were removed in 0.15, along with the clinging mechanic.

Prior to 0.14, elven variant boots existed, weighing less and adding +20 stealth along with any other benefits the boots may have provided. Also, boots of jumping and the boots of the spider were introduced in 0.14.

The original boots of the assassin were removed in 0.13, only to return with new mechanics in 0.14. Prior to 0.12, boots of flight were instead boots of levitation, which were similar but had several annoying limitations.
