|Seven league boots ( [ )|
Seven league boots are a useful item found in the Drakalor Chain.
Wearing the boots alters the base energy cost for movement, and also affects the amount of game time required to traverse the wilderness.
Prior to v 1.2.0:
- blessed pairs reduce it by 50%,
- uncursed pairs reduce it by 25%,
- cursed ones increase it by 50%.
v 1.2.0 onwards:
- blessed pairs reduce it by 25%,
- uncursed pairs reduce it by 10%.
This gives a base energy cost of movement of 750 with blessed boots, 900 with uncursed, and 1500 with cursed. This stacks with other energy cost modifiers.
Seven league boots are extremely desirable, as a blessed pair will allow the player to outrun most common opponents, though particularly fast ones such as quicklings may still be faster. Reducing wilderness travel time makes it unlikely that background corruption will increase.
Like any non-artifact item, they are vulnerable to item destruction. Aside from blessing them, which reduces the likelihood that they will be destroyed, they can be given some further protection by having their PV increased. Once a player has a pair of SLB, it is a very good idea to use scrolls of protection to increase their PV, which makes them less vulnerable to being destroyed by monster hits.
They can be found as random loot. Many players find it worthwhile to spend a wish to gain seven league boots due to how useful they are. Note that as of 1.2.0, only one pair may be wished for at a time.
