In-game description before identifyingEdit

Boots are commonly hand-made by cobblers. Common boots are made by using a form, but good boots are designed for the foot of an individual.

In-game description after identifyingEdit

Boots of Speed: 'The Paws of the Cheetah'. These enchanted boots were once the property of a deadly assassin fond of chasing down prey. He moved with such speed that his target often didn't have the opportunity to respond, even on horseback. Over time the assassin's fame spread, and though his name was never known, all knew to fear the last words heard by his victims: you can hide, but you cannot run!.


  • Drizzt wears a variant of these boots (BOOTDRIZ.ITM), although his variant is undroppable. That's what gives him the extra movement speed.
