If you start casting a fist and equip stoneboots, then you can run while finishing your cast .its working too with spellweaving and necromancy .please remove stone boots from the game ,pvp is horrible now ,instant fly for gargole and casting on the run

    How about they just fix the casting issue instead of screwing over the pvm folks because pvpers can't play without trying to exploit stuff.  The boots have a legitimate pvm use with narvey.

    How long have stoneboots been in the game and how long has this been going on but now all of a sudden it a major deal and is totally destroying PvP, priceless.

    It may have been in the game for a while, but not many ppl knew about the bug till recently. Now a lot of ppl are abusing this bug. So yes all of a sudden, it has become a problem. And it should not be ignored because it is a huge problem.


    I don' t think anyone can say it is working as intended when ppl are casting on the run.

    I also think in pvm, ppl should not be get out of the Navrey paralyze for free. Makes the content way too easy

    Just so the dev's can replicate this...

    It's not just about equipping the boots. You have to "attempt" to equip boots that do not match your race. So a human attempts to equip gargoyle boots and vice versa... Immediately after the fail equip, you have a small moment of time when you are not frozen by anything else such as.... while you are casting a spell.

    So equip/fail the boots and now you are free to cast some spells which are normally 2 second+ casts WHILE moving. Its pretty game breaking in pvp, because now people are literally stopping for a fraction of a second, and then running after you while casting holy fist or essence of wind etc. instead of being frozen in place while they cast.

    Gargoyle characters are also exploiting this in order to fly immediately after the dismount debuff cooldown is over. The normal 2 second wait is being bypassed, and you can't interrupt them taking flight. 

    As far as navery goes... yes, using the boots to get out of her web is also another method in which the boots are being exploited. They were not added for that purpose.

    Since this is a rather urgent issue, I hope a fix can be implemented with the release of the next pub. Preferably sooner.
  • This is good time to make examples of people abusing the exploit with a mass ban-hammer, then fixing it right afterwards.  Its no different then duping or using illegal 3rd party programs.  If they are caught knowingly using this exploit then they should be banned.
