It appeared to be a 3 second stun though it could have just been a root. It happened twice in a row so either I am really unlucky or the failure rate is pretty high.
edit: Confirmed, it is a stun.

That's not how Rocket Boots Xtreme work.

Rokzilla gains Rocket boots Engaged.
Rokzilla gains Rocket boots Engaged (part 2)
Rokzilla gains Rocket blast.
Rokzilla's Rocket blast hits Rokzilla for 258 Fire.
Rocket boots engaged fades from Rokzilla.
Rocket boots engaged (part 2) fades from Rokzilla.
Rocket blast fades from Rokzilla.


That's how it looks with boots. And I didn't see anything in patch notes about a change to rocket boots.

Dude... that's a screenshot of it happening to me. You can't argue with that unless you claim it's a fake. I know it's not in the patch notes, that's why I posted it here. Use them a few times and they will backfire. I'll try to get a better SS for you.

Also notice they changed the wording on the boots:
"Use: Engage the rocket boots to greatly increase your speed... most of the time."
instead of "Use: Engage the rocket boots to greatly increase your speed. They sometimes have some serious backfire...."

it's true, they gave the boots a 2 second stun backfire, and removed the damage at the end of the speed increase

at least now i don't have to level eng for my alt priest

Anybody have a sense of how high the new backfire rate is?

Also, QQ that they removed the damage at the end...no more CC breakage. :(

I was just about to start using these in arena, too. It figures they would get nerfed.
