When You manage to take some early kills, and you want to snowball as midlaner, roaming/ganking often, is a good idea to build Boots of Mobility ? On many mid laners You can take magic penetration with Haunting Guise and You can sell later those boots ... If it is a viable idea, when is it viable? And what characters would benefit more?

Probs on already good roamers like Akali/Diana and the likes. I personally hate those boots and find them ******ed.

Pantheon and Talon also want to roam and don't benefit from MPen, so Mobility tends to be great on those two as well. Or they can build Merc's, depending on how the game goes.

I am talking right about those games that go really well in the beginning , being ahead in CS and with a kill or two, while You're playing an assassin (AP or AD) in midlane...

If you are doing well in lane, as an assassin, you're probably just not worried about what your lane opponent is doing. You see them, you kill them. Not really a big deal what kind of boots you have.

Honestly, the decision should be based mostly on how often you're leaving lane and running around. How you are doing in your own lane isn't the main factor in the decision. If you are leaving lane and running around a lot, get Mobility. Otherwise, get defensive boots.

Entirely this.

I've had to run games where I wen Mobility+Guise on Swain, simply because I could kill the guy and had to run to other lanes a lot. This was also in S2 so, take away from it what you will.

As an assassin in a solo queue game, you must get them. You will need them to roam everywhere and snowball all lanes out of control to archive victory in your game. That is why you pick them in solo queue.
He is gonna kill you!!!

I've never taken Boots of Mobility on any assassin.

I only take this item for Sion mid.

That is because he can poke easier with his Q-W combo.

I also take this for supports sometimes.

Except for those situations, you won't see me with dat item :P
Change is gooooood

I used to build it on supports, but I've found that nine times out of ten it works just as well to not upgrade your boots until later. Several supports have ways to increase their mobility anyway. Defensive boots are also really nice on supports.

Mobility would probably not be very good in Sion, if you only want to poke with it. It takes too long to get the extra MS and is too easy to lose it, so you'd probably find it more consistent to use Sorc's and get an early Alacrity enchant to help close range.
