Recommended Heroes[]

  • Support heroes generally need Arcane Boots to supplement their team's mana.
  • Some heroes need Arcane Boots to stay mobile by using their abilities more often.


  • Techies minimap icon.png Techies must have Arcane Boots in order to lay as many mines as possible.
  • Necrophos minimap icon.png Necrophos is not extremely reliant on mana after the early game, but Arcane Boots gives him the most utility for his team, and can be built into Guardian Greaves icon.png Guardian Greaves later for more survivability.


  • If the player drops items which provides a large amount of mana (e.g. Bloodstone icon.png Bloodstone or Eye of Skadi icon.png Eye of Skadi), then uses Arcane Boots, and then picks up the dropped items again, the player will overall gain far more than 160 mana. This is because upon dropping the mana granting items, the player's maximum mana drops while the current mana percentage stays the same, but Arcane Boots still gives the full amount. After picking up the items again, its maximum mana raises, and its current mana percentage stays the same.
  • Using Replenish Mana every time it is off cooldown is equivalent to 3.18 mana per second.


  • Arcane Boots was originally created as Arcane Ring, being built out of Ring of Protection icon.png Ring of Protection, Energy Booster icon.png Energy Booster, and a recipe. Its recipe got changed and its theme reworked into Arcane Boots in the 6.68 gameplay patch.
    • Arcane Ring icon.png Arcane Ring's appearance is designed after this as well, sharing aesthetics with Arcane Boots.
