    tancred's hobnails, do they exist???

    Hey all,

    Does Tancred's Hobnails *the boots* even exist? I don't think I've ever seen a pair in a game. Logic tells me that they must appear somewhere, but I'm starting to wonder, no one seems to have a pair to trade, or has seen one scince ver 1.10 was released.

    Are they just super rare?

    Does anyone know where the best place to find them is?

    Does anyone have a pair to trade :innocent:

    I'd like some of your thoughts on these elusive wonderboots

    Rock :wave:

    Thats something I've been wondering. 1.09 days, it was not uncommon to grap this pretty cute pair of boots in normal games, but since 1.10 release, i haven't seen any of them in any difficulty games. Interesting thing is I found a pair of botspur, unique boots.

    I found a pair of them, but I actually threw them out to keep some Dracul's I found later on in the same game.

    I have one now on mule, whcl. Together with ammy and weapon I think. Ammy will give good mf so it's good for some low lv mf build.

    Yes they do exist, and yes they are very rare. They're the set-collector worst nightmare ! I've seen about 3 offered on EU Ladder so far, every other set piece 10* more.

    I belief it had something to do with an unfortunately overpopulated TC.


    If I find them again....I'll certainly keep them...


    However Amu + Boots (78 MF on lvl 20). Unfortunately no FRW :p

    Typical....when you have them...and even want to give them away for free, nobody wants them. And just after you sold them to Gheed you meet someone who is willing to pay a SoJ for them since he's been searching for months for one and never finding it.


    Ain't Murphy great ? ;-)

    Easily explained, you'd wanna go searching act 1 normal for those low level sets. High level monsters have a spectre of items to choose from ----------- THIS BIG --------- while the normal act 1 monsters are more like -this-

    Is 30frw gone? As far as I remember it gives 30 fwr when u use ammy and boots together, and boots themselves has +10 dex ! The boots were One of the best normal set items, I would say, for MFers.

    Items with high ilvls from TC3 are hellacious to find (Tancred's boots, Sander's Paragon IIRC).

    And don't even get started on Blinkbat's form. ilvl 26, I think, and in TC3.

    I sold them to somebody a few weeks ago, probably to one of the posters here :p

    Some facts about the armor 3 TC can be found here. Although it's 1.09 info, nothing has changed for this TC IIRC.

    The armor 3 TC is not crowded, it contains just 7 items. The problem is that the qlvl of Tancred's Hobnails is much higher than it's normal for items of this TC - it's 27. Therefore I don't believe that Bishibosh or any act 1 normal monster can drop it. Monsters in TC27+ areas have a very low chance to drop TC 3 stuff at all. For example, hell Pindle drops more TC 87 stuff than TC 3 stuff IIRC.

    The weapon 3 TC is a crowded one with some class-specific stuff. I guess that stuff like Bone Ash, Torch of Iro and Death Knell are rare as well, although act 1 normal monsters can drop these.

    I think the reason that the boots are so hard to find is that no one MF's in Normal, especially not low levels. THe most MF that goes on in normal is usually rushing. Many rush characters don't have high levels of MF.

    But the reason no one MF's low levels is that very few of those items are worth much in the later game, even if upgraded.

    I'd say a lack of anyone MFing in Normal has caused the hobnails to be much more rare than they should be.
