I see a lot of hate on the boots from circles that have a gravehands/piety. Intredasting. How dare people be able to escape you with an artifact, right?
As for the chains, reducing the number uses seems fair enough. Chains and shackles though have been around for a long time, and everyone has used them. I just question why it's suddenly an issue now
. They're used in all kinds of situtions; not only offensive. There are defensive uses for things like shackles. Shackles are also pretty scarce now; I think the last time I was shackled by anyone was @Septus
and that was quite some time ago.
Boots already punish you for escaping from piety/gravehands. If you don't know what that punishment is, I'm sure you have a pair of ethereal boots lying around because no one uses them for some reason. Do FRONTFLIP <dir> and see what it does for yourself.
