How many builders or immorts or players have actually taken the time to
think about all the net 5 stat footwear in the game? What do we have:
Net 5 dex boots: Good align only
Net 5 dex boots: Neutral align only
Net 5 dex boots: Evil Align Only
Net 5 dex boots: Non-Neutral align only
Net 5 dex boots: Non-Evil align only
Net 5 str/con boots: No align restrictions
I might be missing a pair of boots or two but even if I am there are still
an over abundance of dex footwear and little else.
Maybe a pair of these dex footwear could be changed to something a little

kinda makes since those that different shoes would make
you a little bit faster, i have yet to find a pair of nikes
that make me smarter. (they actually make you dumber when you
realize how much you paid for a pair of ugly shoes)

Payne's right -- we generally do try to make some sort of link
between the item and the stats it gives, and more than any other
slot, I think boots make builders think about dex. But your point
is well-taken, and magical items that give +stat in 'non-logical' places
are built all the time.
Thanks for the reminder about this problem!

My brains are in my feet, so my shoes could make me smarter!

The immorts have always given space for balance of realism if it came
to a contest I don't see why this should be different than any other

That should read balance over realism.

Also, once upon a time Dex was what you had to have, so alot of
builders were swung that way when making EQ decisions in areas.

I think anklets could really be anything, the same way that
bracelets and necklaces can have any stat...especially if they
are magical items.
