Elder rune boots and Steadfast boots are different beasts essentially.

Not only are Steadfast non-degradable, it can't be upgraded to T92 boots.
Elder Rune can't be upgraded to t92 either, so I'm not sure what you're trying to say here.

The non-degradable nature of Steadfast Boots will keep them in some demand of some players who don't want to spend much. However, being not upgradeable will hurt its value more, so its demand goes down and so is its price.


Dilbert, Steadfast boots are upgradeable to emberkeen boots, which are t90 power armor boots. These are degradeable. Since emberkeen is less desirable, the price in steadfast drops. You can read the rest of the thread to find out more about this.


IMO the solution would be to give emberkeen boots a special effect or add a lifepoint bonus to them. Give emberkeen a niche.




Emberkeen have a prayer bonus that Mesterwork don't. That's the niche.

"Elder rune boots and Steadfast boots are different beasts essentially."
.

I clearly wrote that. Why are you still trying to compare Elder Rune Boots to Steadfast Boots? They are different beasts.

If one really wants to compares Steadfast Boots to the BiS boots now, they should be comparing Steadfast to Masterwork Boots and their T92 upgrades.

Emberkeen Boots are also only T90, not the Bis T92 variety.
