The Arcane Boots are an item purchasable at the Main Shop, under Support. However, it requires an item from the Secret Shop to be completed.

Additional information[edit]

  • Stacks with all other movement speed bonuses.

Recommended heroes[edit]

  • Support heroes generally need Arcane Boots to supplement their team's mana.
  • Nuker heroes that rely heavily on their abilities can use Arcane Boots to replenish their own 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 2.91 mana per second, which regenerates the bonus mana in 55 seconds.
  • Because Arcane Boots can be disassembled, they make a good intermediate boot choice for heroes building Aether Lens icon.png Aether Lens, Bloodstone icon.png Bloodstone, or Octarine Core icon.png Octarine Core.
