You forget that everyone uses quicksilver flasks and full life even if hard to sustain is protected by ES even for a short time at low lvls. If i find em i will surely use them plus we dont have much (or any?) full ES and even low ES uniques. Too much low and full life as it is though.


Low level uniques being powerful at low levels is not exactly bad. Look at lifesprig, the many 2 hand uniques,wanderlust,goldrim, auromvorax..etc. It's really fun to find a unique at low levels that make progressing at a certain point quick and fun. It's a change of pace.

With the penalty and higher movement it would have been an interesting speed unique. At low levels getting around 30 ES or so is what is achievable when progressing normally. I don't think the current boot design is bad if it had no penalty though.


Yeah, i would love some epic speed boots at some early lvl but oh well, what can we do?

i upgraded to eternal 16.12.2013 and ,my idea for item was pretty simple
-very low level boots (lv1-10)
-+50% running speed at full life
-you take more damage
-some random stats

they are risky but fast and fun for speedruns (i asked to make them common unique drops)

after that they reply my questions once about 3-6weeks, this was really frustrating...
then they raised item level to lv 27,changed full life to ES and dropped running speed to 40, i reply that i dont like it coz the whole point for low lv race boots its gone, and then they nerfed stats and put to 16.
i took 9 moths to make these and i have already stopped playing game so i dont care anymore, about my new avatar i have asked about 5 times and its still not done or they forgot whole thing.

same thing with my first item http://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Essentia_Sanguis
when i started make those i have faith that melee will be fixed someday. they launch my claws same day as ghost reaver keynote (next to claw+CI tree) so they become useless at day 1)


You need to stick to your guns bro. Even if you don't play you still spent the money so you deserve to be happy with the product. If the boots have to be that bad then they deserve to have at least a 50% run speed bonus. If the devs won't allow 50% then the boots should be buffed in other areas.

Maybe allow the 40% but give it something else to compensate. Reduce the penalty and add some life or something.

Add this mod to them:

Upon Damage Taken there's a [small chance] to trigger Phase Run for a [short] duration.

Or wouldn't this work / can't be done? (it's probably too late, anyways)
I'd seriously look into delaying those boots. Not only are they not what you wanted, they're obviously baffling just about everyone else.

I love low level uniques, but I think they deserve as much creativity and usefulness at their level as anything else. This game does not need more uniques that will just need buffing later, and likely will never get it.
I am W James Chan, author of Blackcloak: A Man of His Sword, the novel from which the PoE unique Oni-Goroshi is derived. So if you liked that, give the book a go on Amazon. I think it's pretty good -- but like Her, it isn't to be come at lightly, and it definitely isn't what it first seems to be.
Reading Myrmi's take was depressing.
Have you made a cool build using The Coming Calamity? Let me know!

I'm not happy about it. And I have an unfortunate habit of doing something about things I'm not happy about, especially if I suspect the victim feels powerless.

yeah... that is a massive downer, honestly they should give him another go at desgining a claw or something because the GR thing is really nasty.. or at least let him revamp the claw for the current game

i remember when the claw was introduced, it seemed like a good option for CI builds to use as an offhand for the ghost reaver when the keystone was not in the game..

making a user designed unqiue (for which he donated 1k $)completely obsolete is really shitty

wow sad to hear that myrmi you shouldn't allow them to release the boots as is!

They have to make a better alternative for you.

They should either remove the full ES requirement or the 30% bonus damage. Such weird item does not deserve to have 2 negative effects! In fact no unique item in the game has 2 negative effects yet LOL.


some uniques with two negative effects, there are others.

I'd like to hear about the design process and philosophy behind these boots. I strongly doubt there isn't something to them. As others have so callously noted, 1k isn't a small amount, so I'd like to believe there's method to this seeming madness.

Thanks for answering.

I would delay it if I were you, it looks like the penalty wasnt adjusted after nerfing the initial idea. Full ES is much harder to keep than full life.

I would suggest asking for two separate movement speed rolls on it. +15% base and +25% more when on full ES for example sounds pretty reasonable for the downsides.

Or if possible and its somehting you'd like, go with vortexnomad suggestion regarding phase run.

The current state of the unique is pretty bad, I think you should propose a bit more, delay it, I know I would considering the price you pay. Tis not like you are creating a thing without downsides.

Hopefully GGG will stop abandoning leagues after 4.0.0 is released
