Diviner's footwear is a prize from Treasure Hunter or as a possible reward from an experience-earning Guthixian Cache that boosts Divination experience by 1%. It is also a possible reward from an experience-earning Guthixian Cache. Wearing all five pieces of the diviner's outfit will give 1% bonus experience in addition to the 5% from the individual pieces, for a total of 6%.
On release, a glitch allowed players who had won a piece of the Diviner's outfit to reclaim a pair of these boots without having won them on the Squeal of Fortune. The glitch was patched a few days later, and trying to equip a pair of boots obtained through the glitch resulted in the player getting the message "The Diviner's footwear disappears in a puff of smoke!", deleting the boots.
