Heroes with high split pushing potential should always consider Boots of Travel.


  • Boots of Travels is useful on all heroes during the late game, where it is needed to make desperate pushes or defenses, especially if one or both teams are dead or away from their bases.
  • Consider using Glyph of Fortification to prevent creeps from dying so Boots of Travel can complete channeling of Teleport.
