Why do they knock off the mov 5 buff? Working as intended?

IIRC, the speed shrines give you a quick ultra-fast boost of 0.5 second followed by a longer, but slower speed bonus. the boots 5 effect isnt lost, but you may get some diminishing returns tho, especially if you hit the shrine with ghost activated.

Speed shrines may be triggering an "In combat" effect which removes the +mobility bonus you get from them. Just a thought.

Can you provide evidence to support this?

If this is true, wearing boots 2 should give you the same speed number as wearing boots 5 on a speed shrine.

If anyone can confirm this to be true or not true, feel free to post it up (I'm at work now and can't test).

I already explained it, I tested it with a friend without boots, with boots 1, and with mobility. it doesnt put you in combat. it does exactly what I said above.

create a custom game, select crystal scar and test it.. how hard can it be ?

Or just look it up. Speed over 415 is reduced by 20%, speed over 490 is reduced by 50%. You're still faster, you just don't get as much bonus.
