You are not your f&$%ing Desert Boots.

To blantantly plagiarize someone else's theme/idea, I wanted to point these out to anyone who doesn't know about them.You may see "Sandstorm:" and think "Wow, that's really useful."

But as the Wiki points out, "While under the effect of Sandstorm this latent will be activated."

Scholars may not be a dime a dozen (yet), but there's plenty around and more than likely one in any endgame shell. Either as a Scholar yourself or with a little help from a Scholar friend any job in the game can get some Ghetto Gaiters.

Movement+12% can be the difference between kiting/training successfully and running away to die somewhere (hopefully) safe.

One Dynamis-Jeuno run the Mega Boss pull got messed up and all the mobs were popped. While people waited at the Auction House again for the boss I went and aggroed all the mobs as SCH/RDM with Desert Boots and Sandstorm. I dropped my hourglass, took off for the Mog House entrance, and was warped to safety in Ru'Lude Gardens. No movement+12% and I would have died before getting away and probably been unable to reraise due to repops. Handy indeed.

There's plenty of other applications in groups (and many more for solo Scholars).

So if you haven't already, consider checking them out!

  1. Wanna come do the same for us? For some reason after a reasonably good run we completely messed up the Boss pull.... /headdesk
