    I, personally, always use War Travelers. Since all my sorcs use full Tal's ( i don't like lightning, so I am content with Tal's ) i pack some nice MF ( around 300% ) without breaking a sweat.

    It all depends on your needs. Generally,rare boots are a great slot to pick on some resists and some set and unique boots can give your more life/dexterity/strength.

    And, of course there are these nice ole' Silkweaves :thumbsup: :

    Defense: (112-130)
    Durability:16
    Required Strength:65
    Required Level:36
    200 Defense vs Missile
    (150-190)% Enhanced Defense
    Increase Maximum Mana 10%
    30% Faster Run/Walk
    +5 Mana After Each Kill

    Other than that, beats me...

    I second the motion of the thread creator. I, too, would like to know your opinion, guys.

    depends on what you mean e.g. I think that silkweawe provides 15% to maximum mana.

    I'm more looking to see if anyone has come up with some interesting boots. Obviously there is no +skill or FCR, so maybe high resist, mana regen is the best. Been playing for a LONG time, and actually never really paid much attention to my footwear!

    Nice work. So I'm guessing that magic boots are out for sure. So then it's a matter of figuring out what different combos can be made with rare/unique boots. Maybe a monday morning project... :clap:

    Silkweaves add 10% to maximum mana.

    If a sorc has let's say 1000 mana, that would be +100 mana = 50 energy = 50 stat points more to invest elsewhere, except you have a no-energy sorc. However, for PvM, stats aren't that vital for a sorc and she won't have any problems anyway if she wears Tal's set (as already said), so my choice would be (and actually are) WT because of MF.

    That's too simple. +energy, +mana/Clvl and +energy/Clvl (doesn't appear anywhere tho) aren't boosted by +% mana, so in most cases a sorc with 1000 mana won't get +100 mana when wearing Silkweaves.

    That's right. A sorc would need to have level + base energy = (1000-35)/2 = 483 to have 1000 mana and that would be an insane amount of stat points invested into energy.

    Incorrect, kris... as plain +mana items ARE boosted. So all of mana charms, and +mana from items (like trang's helmet) would count. Wearing trang's helmet instead of shako (although no one would do that) would make a huge difference.

    So what I am getting from this is that people either use Silweave for mana boost or War Trav for MF. Pity - I was hoping to hear of something different, something good...but guess I'll stick with my WT's...but when I find those boots I want, I'll post it! :thumbsup:

    Aldurs boots: +life

    Waterwalk: +to max fire resist +life +dex

    I have to agree with the triple res boots. Something like the following would be really nice.

    Sapphire - Cold Resist +(31-40)%
    Ruby - Fire Resist +(31-40)%
    Amber - Lightning Resist +(31-40)%
    of Speed - 30% Faster Run/Walk
    of Fortune - (16-25)% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items
    of Balance - 10% Faster Hit Recovery

    Some other usefull mods for a caster could also be:
    Emerald - Poison Resist +(31-40)%
    Dragon's - +(31-40) to Mana
    of Wealth - (41-80)% Extra Gold from Monster
    of Remedy - Poison Length Reduced By 25%
    of Accuracy - +(6-9) to Dexterity

    And for a melee character there is also:
    Godly - (101-200)% Enhanced Defense
    of Warmth - Half Freeze Duration
