Description of Problem:


Item Boots of Speed under tag: BOOT01 does not provide said effects of Equipped Ability : increases movement rate


There is no change in speed whatsoever for anyone wearing them, spells such as Haste sometimes work as per normal. While the Haste effect has been removed, there still is no change for those that do not have normal enhanced speed of monks or barbarians.


This is unbalanced by the fact, enemies such as Illasera still are under the effects of permanent haste, and move far more quickly without the aid of the spell.



Couldn't see this issue anywhere else, sorry for all the formality, not my usual way of posting y'know? :(


Anyways, this could do with a bit more tweaking to keep the item useful. ;)

Oops, must've missed that by accident. :(


My mistake, sorry. ;)


Yes, the Boots of Speed work without Free Action also equipped.

Was a bit confusing however as the only thing I was aware of was Free Action against Stun, I checked the document files made and didn't see it.


Anyway, again I'm sorry for this misinformation.

Free Action protects against most effects dealing with movement (hold, slow, haste, web, grease, etc.). The various sources weren't equivalent and didn't provide comprehensive immunities in the original game, so you'd sometimes get hasted or have a movement rate bonus if you had Free Action from certain items and spells (and other times, the haste would be blocked); they should behave more predictably with the fixpack.


Per one of the game designers, it doesn't defend against stun (which is supposed to be classified as a mental effect) -- the game was always inconsistent here (some sources of Free Action protected from stun while others didn't), and I believe we have an optional component to restore stun immunity to all the items and spells granting Free Action (so you can choose which behavior you prefer).
