These boots will protect you from all Mordenkainen's Disjunction spells targeted directly at you
This item will lower the concealment of any Ethereal Visage or Monk Empty Body effect on the wearer by 10%
Intended power level
55-60. A Paragon tier version with better immunities or specials would also be cool.
The build it is intended for
Non-Conceal based builds. It gives a alternative setup to the end-game classic PW ring+breach boots, so we might see some more love for Quaternary Exotica + these boots, if you don't need environmental survivability. Not being randomizable should keep the power bump from more gear options in check.
The item currently used that it would replace
There're already ''Mord Boots'' that provide breach immunity, hence the NEED for some ''Breach Boots'' with mord immunity.
Iron Will and Lesser Spell Mantle are cosmetic alternatives to Shield Proficiency and Exp Retreat/Lesser Restoration, but can help some builds and fit quite good the item concept imo.
Don't get me wrong i love the item, and I commented on it to see it being approved sooner.
Items seldom have Immunity to all exotic, given spell mantles I would expect more affinity/protection to/against magic. Theme is the reason. Now that I think about it, considering the abjuration school (which it grants immunity) and energy immunity spell, a flat five elemental +5% Immunity could fit.
On the active, it covers 15+ 1d4 levels of spell. would it prevent 2 castings of weird? (I want to understand it's usefulness)
Yes, it shoudn't really make people forget to learn/cast the proper spell or make them believe they're spell immune, just a weak panic button that takes 1 round to activate or, if casted in advance, risks to be wasted very soon.
Mostly cosmetic stuff that one time in 10 runs might save your life anyway Breach boots have the underused restoration power, wanted something similar.
