    Boots

    I was just thinking, what if boots became universal. So all boots had both Magical and Physical power on.

    Meaning:

    Magical gods could access Ninja Tabi for Power and Attack Speed and Warrior Tabi for raw power (The concern would be how much mag power they might end up having on them to make them desirable given CDR/Pen boots give 55 power as is)

    Physical gods could access Shoes of the Magi for some flat pen and Shoes of Focus for CDR and mana.

    Meanwhile, one of Reinforced Greaves/Reinforced Shoes is removed as they're both identical (One of the things that spurred this idea, the fact that literally 50% of boots are just identical save Mag/Phys power)

    Travellers Shoes could stay as is, with the higher speed and mini-Pyromancer proc.

    Talaria Boots could become a variant of the previous Talaria/Traveller booties with that gold proc (Since who doesn't love gold?) or something else if TFG have something else in mind.

    Something to thing about to be honest. Since, Boots are core on every god (Except Mouseotoskr) and are an early start to your build (Often being picked up as 1st/2nd item) and thus more options to choose from could be pretty neat.
    Preferred Gods:
    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Hel, Janus, Jing Wei, Nike, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    Since we are almost forced to have boots I think it’s a great idea to get the stats you actually need. I mean even a hunter can use cooldown boots, well Medusa at least haha. Or you know, Sol getting the attack speed boots kinda thing.

    To much hassle for balance I think. Boots has seen so many changes for good reasons. Introducing AS boots to mages and CDR boots to warrior/assass would just upset the balance to much.

    It would also be interesting to see what off-meta things come out too.

    Like, seeing Zeus go AS boots for better wave clear basic attacking his Aegis (Or more attacks onto a tank with 3 stacks on) without having to invest into one of the rings that are quite expensive for AS.

    Maybe a pressure Warrior going pen boots to try and further bully their lane opponent who rushed phys prots?

    How so?

    Since, there will be trade offs for going these boots. Like, Assassins would lose the early powerspike of grabbing that 40 power from Warrior Tabi.

    Most Mages wouldn't have too much use for AS boots and those that do would have to trade off not grabbing the precious CDR boots or even pen boots (Since even the ADC Mages are reliant on their ability cooldowns for their stims/burst, Freya wants to use her 1 to burst for a million damage as much as possible, Chronos wants his 2 up as often as he can so he can boost his damage and Sol is very dependent on her 2 for much of her damage)

    While Warriors... Might actually have some boots that impact them like at all (Outside basic attack Warriors having Ninja Tabi to bolster basics and Berserker Shield synergy) with options for CDR boots or Pen boots to give them a powerspike despite them building tanky for their first few items.

    Like I said, I feel the main balance issue might come from Warrior Tabi on Mages, since to make it notable vs their already 55 power boots it'd need like 70+ power on which would be a significant powerspike early on. (That said, CDR boots already give 62-67 power with Book of Thoth...)

    Aphrodite, Awilix, BAEllona, Da Ji, Hel, Janus, Jing Wei, Nike, Nox, Serqet, Skadi, Sol and The Morrigan.

    Mmmhm...

    I mean, you can only have SO much flat pen though. Once you hit the cap it doesn't matter how much access you have.

    Given the ease of attaining that cap through just the mace tree alone, it might not always be better than getting the raw 40 power from Warrior Tabi (Or grabbing that CDR from Focus, or if you're basic attack based, sticking with Ninja Tabi, or even forgoing damage alltogether and grabbing the mobility from Travellers Shoes, which I note more Junglers are doing these days)
