I was curious, too, so I checked on this and found Rocket Boots work on a different system, and won't benefit from the boost. Basically, the boots ignore areas where we typically cannot use a mount, so for now, we decided not to extend the speed increase to this perk.

Thanks for asking. If it makes sense to change this in the future we'll let everyone know.

Despite the inevitable bikeshedding that's about to ensue, I just wanted to thank you again for the ongoing communication improvements

Please change this in the future. Players are used to having the same speed on mounts and rocket boots, especially in group content (flashpoints, operations). Right now, when moving between trash groups, it doesn't matter much whether you use a mount or rocket boots, so you are free to use either but players prefer rocket boots because they're instant and they're small; they don't block half the screen.
Yes, this will allow players to clear that content faster; specifically, there is the issue where the gap between players with/without rocket boots will become wider. Though I don't see that as reason enough to not add 130% rocket boots.
I understand that you can't change this immediately, but I'm hoping you can add Tier IV and Tier V unlocks for rocket boots in the future.

Makes perfect sense.

By the way..... good to see you "lurking & stalking" us after Austin normal business hours.

It's very refreshing after literally years of "no gold posts after hours" unless a server crashed and sank into the sea"
When you find yourself surrounded by hostile Clowns... always go for the "Juggler" first.

Same. I was really surprised when I saw Keith posting last weekend; Musco has never done this. It really shows me how much he cares about the game, and makes me much more confident for the game's future.

What about changes around increasing the time rocket boots work for or reducing the cool down or even making them permanently on like a mount?

Nothing is more annoying that "Oh great, I've got to walk/run again until CD is over".

My partner started new toons on another server and had noticed the rocket boost doesn't open even if you have a legacy. She had to get CS to fix this for her. Is this some bug?

Rocket boost guys. It's rocket boost. Just because flames come out the soles of your feet doesn't mean the language has changed. Put your little mouse over the icon and practice reading.
