Default Boots of the Vindicator should look like fine plate until September 2001

Boots of the Vindicator were originally not black, they had a fine plate look until September 2001.

Topic : New Graphics


This came off the official EverQuest message boards.

I noticed with the last patch, the Boots of the Vindicator were changed. They were previously a silver, original non-velious texture, pretty much looking like fine plate. Now, they seem to be a dull gold/brown color. Any chance we could get these changed back? One of the reasons that I wanted these boots was for the plain look they had along with great stats. I miss my old boots!

We changed the look of a few items with the last patch. While your preference obviously would be that this particular item remain as it was, we thought it better that it look a little more unique. A few other items were cosmetically changed as well.

In the long run, we understand that it's just as likely that people will prefer the old graphic as it is that they will like the new one. I think the old saying goes something like this: I don't know art, but I know what I like. We have to go with our instincts on this sort of thing.

Fixed, pending update

Supplemental Research of Chest/Boots, possibly Blackstar:

And sadly it doesn't get much better in the high end:
BP: Chestplate of Vindication
Legs: Donals
Boots: Boots of the vindicator
Gloves/Arms/Bracer: Templars
Shield: Shield of the Dragonkind
Melee: Blackstar
Since I dont have a pic of how interesting this looks, the BP is this poo brown alt velious plate, boots are kind of a tan plate, arms are maroonish (i'm a high elf), shield look like a bladestopper and mace looks like one of the newbie velious maces. I dont think there is any point in time that this char has actually matched heh [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

According to some, Blackstar originally had the appearance of a classic mace. All of the posts were made before the September patch in question, though one post after that point does mention it having the appearance of a Velious mace instead.

The only excuse VI can possibly give to excuse the lack of creativity on these "uber" items is with the graphics over haul on the horizin they didnt want to spend a lot of time creating icons and then, creating new icons again.

it hits like a double bastage on crack, yay variety (no sarcasm there!) i think FS morning star is the best looking weapon i ever had, dark ember looks like a poo, i wish it looked like EBM. wraith bone looks poopy too. stuff that beats FSMS look that i have seen: this one amazing nak hammer from chardok, looks like the wvelium 2h hammer look but it's 1hb, the translucent white block on a stick. aslo, cleric epic woot!

also:
this hammer has better over all stats than the epic, (i'd still get an epic, even if i had this, epic is cool) dunno what blessing does tho

Are you people just plain retarded or what?

First off, If cleric only dumbasses. Second the stats are better then the cleric epic except for the rez. Btw: this comes from NTov, and if you have this, you more than likely already have the epic. I weild this instead of my epic.

Third, there is not cool looking model, it looks like an ordinary mace. You dont normally go attacking crap in NToV, but its fun to use when doing exp or messing around and whatnot. The effect is a PROC that is 100hp group heal.

BTW: highest level rez in game besides a GM 100% rez is 96% not 97%.
