"second best boots in the game"??

Is it just me, or is that line in the article not strictly true?

Armorwise they're identical to draken (or steel, for that matter), but have a little magical strength-&-weakness where draken have a substantial speed-boost.
Ignoring, for the moment, that Crystal boots are identical (just different elements) and also ignoring guardian boots (which, though lower percentage... have a generally more useful strength and a weakness which is mostly irrelevant).

I guess to determine which is best, you have to give a definitive answer to this question:
"Is a 3% fire-resistance and 3% ice weakness 'BETTER' than a +15level speed-boost?"

Given that this is asking for a definitive answer to an apples-to-oranges comparison, I don't think that "second best" label is entirely accurate.
I would rather say they're arguably the second best, and likewise on the draken boots page.

I guess that was a lot of text to basically say "that line is bullcrap", but maybe I'm missing something?
Can anyone see a reason for that line to be justified?

You're right, they are by no means the second best because we haven't given any criteria on how boots are rated. Since there are numerous best pairs of boots now we can't make these judgements. I don't think anyone would have argued if you just removed that without this long post, if they knew your reasoning. Removed. -- Sixorish 18:53, August 15, 2011 (UTC)
