    Reinforced Boots nerf soon?

    It was clearly overbuffed and is being grabbed on mages and assassins now, not just tanks. Pros are even grabbing it on darn hunters sometime.

    The darn tank boot can easily replace t2 tank items component. It's so cost effective it's not even funny.

    On a magic char, Magi boot pretty much gets completely hard countered by this defensive boot, with additional tankiness stat after 2 hits.

    Any char that rely on CC also get countered by this boot.

    Want to make assassins cry? Grab this boot and laugh at them not being able to 100-0 your squishy.

    Because of a boot.

    Everyone is tanky!

    Probably could use a protection nerf.

    They will also have to bump the cost up if it grants even more than 15 protection after 5 stacks.

    It was made to be worth 1.4k with that stat. The extra protection just push its efficiency off the chart because with that 1.4k gold, you can grab a T2 defensive items and it still won't even be able to compete with the boot with a nerfed protection because it also offers that precious 30% CCR.

    I'm kinda sad it gives so much CCR that it's tough thinking about grabbing this on Anubis because he will only be able to gain 10% CCR from it.

    The only solution is to buff Warrior Tabi.

    An actually good, cost effective defense item?
    Can't have that!

    U can't be serious.

    It outperforms items that cost more.

    Someone should do the math for the lol and see if it can go up to 170% cost efficiency or something.

    Just compare Cloak of Concentration to it.

    for 1515 gold, you get 30 protection and 7% CDR

    But with 1400 gold on a Reinforced shoe.

    You get

    150 health
    up to 25 protection
    30% CCR
    15 physical / 20 Magic power
    and 18% movement speed.

    So for 100 less gold, you lose only 5 protection bonus and 7% CDR for 30% CCR, 150 health, 15 physical or 20 magical powre and 18% movement speed.

    What a trade-off. Even Spirit Robe struggle to compete with it and that cost 1k more.

    150 health with 25 protections isn't absurd by any measure. It's a minor boost to defense in the same way BotM and Warrior Tabi are a minor boost to damage; the items are really only good because they have MS. If any boots need a nerf, it's Ninja Tabi.

    It's because the shoe comes with CCR and MS at the same time along with protection, power and health that make it ridiculous. It becomes the ultimate offense-defense shoe with 0 trade-off while also costing less than the other offense options.

    Ninja Tabi might needs a nerf in the future but that's more of Trans needing a nerf for being too good. The synergy between Tran and the mana on Tabi makes the trade-off to getting AS instead of flat physical power too little to care about.
