Arcane Boots (also called arcanes or mana boots) is a support Item. It is made from Boots of Speed and Energy Booster, which are respectively found in the Home Shop and the Secret Shop, but can be both purchased from the Side Shop.
Arcane Boots can be disassembled.
Arcane boots are often used to help sustain extended pushes, especially in the early game. Since many early push strategies rely on heroes who use spells to quickly clear creep waves and damage towers, Arcane Boots are used to replenish mana and allow teams to continue pushing without needing to return to the fountain to regenerate mana.
The item is most commonly purchased by heroes that want to augment their mana pool to support heavy spell usage by themselves and their teammates. Adding +250 mana to the hero's pool and restoring 135 mana to allied units in a radius of 900, Arcane Boots prove themselves to be invaluable in a variety of situations; whether for providing the mana for extended pushes, to cast a needed stun, or to harass heroes in the laning phase, Arcane Boots will always be welcome on a team.
- On certain heroes, specifically Leshrac, Timbersaw, Storm Spirit, Queen of Pain, and Necrolyte, the Arcane Boots can later be disassembled to be used in creation of the Soul Booster item, which is a component in creating a Bloodstone or Octarine Core.
- On Chen Arcane Boots is the best method of restoring mana to persuaded neutral creeps without sending them back to Fountain.
