Perk Breakdown[]

  • The perk does not immediately halt your momentum (though it does reduce it very quickly). As such, you can still slam into the ground (taking fall damage) if you are going extremely fast or activate it too late!
  • The Hover Boots perk prevents Dwarves from equipping any other forms of footwear encountered on Hoxxes, such as Jet Boots. This can leave the player at a major disadvantage on missions with guaranteed footwear spawns such as Spring Shoes and MK2 Jet Boots on Powerstone Harvest and Escort Duty respectively.
  • While active, you burn any creatures unfortunate enough to be right beneath you:
    • Damage per tick: 20
    • Damage type: Heat
    • Interval: 0.25-0.5 s
    • Movement speed: x0.8
    • Duration: 2 / 2.5 / 3 / 3.5 s
    • The area underneath the Dwarf's feet acts as an Environmental Heat Source with an Intensity value of Heat 3. This prevents enemies from cooling and causes them to gain 20° per second.
