Steadfast boots are a pair of melee boots dropped by Glacors, and are classified as tank armour. They require 85 Defence to wear. Steadfast boots currently provide the second highest overall, and highest non-degrading armour rating for the feet slot outside of Dungeoneering, tied with ragefire and glaiven boots, surpassed only by its upgraded version.
Steadfast boots can be combined with two steadfast scales to create a degradable pair of level 90 emberkeen boots. The process cannot be reversed by any means other than degradation through combat.
The in game skill guide lists completion of Ritual of the Mahjarrat as a requirement to wear these boots; this is not true. Completion of the quest is not required to buy, trade, or equip the boots.
