    The stone footware which can be fished up using a Lava Hook, have no other functionality but that of freezing up the user.

    Now, why would anyone want to be stuck frozen ?

    What are the possible uses for these items ?
    Thanks.

    Don't take the time to "Unequipt the stone boots to free yourself". Simply alter the boots/shoes to make them OPPOSITE of your race, gargoyle or human. A gargoyle trying to put on human shoes/boots gets a message something like "You can not wear these!" and they are AUTO dropped back into your backpack. Same with humans trying to wear gargoyle footwear. In either case, the webbing is broken & its a one step process. Simply set a macro in the new client to arm them or drop them on your paper doll in the old client and your freed :)

    I see, quite handy then....

    Is there some precise timing as to when equipping (or trying to equip) the stone footware ?

    Like, before the web hits or it is also fine after the web hits oneself ?

    I use Pinco UI so when I get webbed I get a nice big message across the screen telling me. When I see this I hit my hotkey to equip the boots then unequip and it frees me.

    If you are wearing them and frozen, do they prevent mobs from teleporting you to them?

    So, there is new information available after all.........

    Besides, I do not see the underlying logic as to how and why, wearing stone footware which stucks one to the ground, would actually work towards freeing up from a trapping web which is static.....

    So, I really do not understand how this was found out initially..... I mean, one is stuck within a web and thinks about using stone footware which stucks one more to get in end freed up ?

    Go figure....

    Would it work on Mephitis too? It's quite annoying when she pulls you in & kills you. Especially when you're on a tamer & can't heal your pet.

    For those using the Classic Client and UOA, here's how to do the same as Pinco's.

    1. Equip altered stone footwear on a gargoyle, leaving everything else off.
    2. "Save what is currently being worn" for one of the alternates.
    3. Log off and go into the character's UOAssist.cfg (it's plain text and can be edited in Notepad). Copy that dress section.
    4. Go into a human character's UOAssist.cfg file and paste in the dress section. Save.

    I never before bothered using stone footwear; it was too cumbersome. Now my Navrey hunter can go barefoot, and an alternate dress macro works in that it attempts to put on only the altered footwear, but of course the character can't keep them on.

    I'll sit back now and wait for certain people to accuse me of haxxoring.

    Thank you Zog, I was trying to figure that one out. I was close, but your tip sealed the deal and got it done. Much faster now than putting them on and taking them off.

    I was so excited when these first came out. I put on a pair on my archer to keep from getting "sucked" at Navery and it didn't work. I've not touched them since then. Thank you sharing this! *is as happy as her Avatar*

    You use a lava proof hook in the Abyss lava pools to get stone footwear. If you go in via the Tomb of Kings there is lava you can fish in pretty much in peace.

    You do not wear them all the time. you wait until she webs you, then quickly put them on and take them off. It removes the web.

    Yup, my fisher was confused when she first put them on. I was hoping they would protect my shoeless fee from getting hooks caught in them. Ya'know being stone and all. Imagine my surprise when I was stuck and could not move. :) My though was if I can't move, then she, Navery, can't pull me. Being an archer, it wasn't important that I be close, just yank them off as needed. Alas she still did it. Never though about it being the other way around.

    The other use they have is making others wear them, tying them up, and throwing them in the sea.
