Armlet should be activated any time you join a teamfight. If you have lifesteal, it can be beneficial to activate any time you are farming.
Armlet is a highly aggressive item that grants increased attack speed, damage, and strength.

Armlet Toggling[edit]

Activation of armlet provides 475 hp over 0.7 seconds when turned on. When running away at low hp it is beneficial to toggle it off then on again quickly for a burst of 475 hp. If one is careful enough, they can survive for much longer than they usually would by using this mechanic.

Notable heroes[edit]

DPS based strength carry heroes benefit from the increased life, attack speed, and damage.

Synergy with other items[edit]

  • Heart of Tarrasque: Increased HP regeneration from heart negates the HP loss from armlet. Some heroes can leave armlet permanently activated if they have a Heart.
  • Morbid Mask (and it's upgrades): Lifesteal gives the user a regeneration ability to counteract the life drain from Armlet.
