Notes

Strategy[edit]

Aggressive Use[edit]

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.

Defensive Use[edit]

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.
