  • By default, Town Portal Scroll can only target buildings.
    • Level 1 Boots of Travel, allows targeting allied non-hero units, Level 2 additionally allows targeting allied heroes.
    • Treats the Lone Druid Spirit Bear icon Spirit Bear as a hero. Treats other creep-heroes as creeps.
    • Town Portal Scroll icon Town Portal Scroll notes fully apply.
  • Upon initially equipping this instance of the item, it automatically sells all Town Portal Scroll icon Town Portal Scrolls in the dedicated slot.
    • After that, it grants a free Town Portal Scroll to the hero, and further prevents gaining Town Portal Scrolls when dying. Also works for hero clones.
      • This free Town Portal Scroll has no value, meaning that it does not grant gold when sold, and it doesn't affect Net Worth. Despite that, the tooltip shows its regular sell value, and it can even be sold at "full price" within the time limit.
    • Re-equipping the item (e.g. moving it from the backpack, or taking it after dropping it) does not repeat these effects.
      • Equipping the Boots of Travel icon Boots of Travel created by disassembling Boots of Travel 2 icon Boots of Travel 2 also does not repeat the effects.
      • However, creating a new instance of the item (e.g. reassembling it after disassembling it, or upgrading from Boots of Travel icon Boots of Travel to Boots of Travel 2 icon Boots of Travel 2) does repeat the effects.
    • If the entire stack of scrolls can be sold at full price, all scrolls that have value will be sold at full price.
    • Only bought scrolls and the scroll granted during game start have value.
    • Scrolls granted by dying and the free scroll granted upon initially equipping the item will not grant gold.
      • Despite that, the game still registers whether they can still be sold at full price.
      • When a scroll is used normally, these valueless scrolls are always consumed first.
    • Selling Town Portal Scrolls owned by someone else will grant the owner the gold instead.

Recommended Heroes[]

Unknown Hero icon
  • Along with the Tempest Double minimap icon Tempest Double, Boots of Travel gives Arc Warden presence in two lanes, and helps him farm more quickly.


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 icon Glyph of Fortification to prevent creeps from dying so Boots of Travel can complete channeling of Teleport.
