    Why people say new Book of Thoth is bad?

    It gives 170 power stacked, and more with another mana item like poly, blue boots or doom orb? These 3 items on top is close to another 100 power?

    Or have I misunderstood new passive?

    The item now ignores the god's mana pool. And that's why many are saying it's bad now. Yes it may provide a lot of power still once evolved, and it's still a decent item, but any early potential this item had just went down the drain and you NEED to rush this item if you plan on building it otherwise it won't be stacked by the time you actually need it to be. It has to be evolved to gain any sort of decent benefit from this item power wise, and to make the most of it, you need to build additional mana. Soul Reaver isn't a good item anymore cause of the massive nerf they gave it going into S6, Poly could be fine but only in very specific situations and only on very specific gods, and Book of the Dead could still be decent when paired with it possibly. But now it's putting too much reliance on other items instead of just getting a really good power spike cause of your base mana pool.

    Like you said, it's still good, but getting it to that state is now a different matter. I think it might have become one of those lowkey OP items like Blackthorn Hammer (and like Celestial Legion used to be until the patch today).

    So its worse before stacked that is what you are sayin?

    Doesn't take that long to stack though and its 170pwr, 197pwr with blue boots. Almost 200pwr ez from one item, what other item even comes close to this? Still looks OP to me.

    It's technically worse off in the short term build wise. You see to get oodles of power from it simply because mages get lots of mana anyways. It used to be powerful enough to build by itself manawise. Now, however, to get the same, you need to build more mana items, meaning a different build path than what people used to build from. The payoff is that, with more mana items, you do get more power from them in total.

    It's worse now because you have to stack mana items in order to get to the same power level as before it was shifted to where it is now. For some builds, that may be inhibiting.

    It's still pretty good as power/sustain item.
