bootsof swiftness viable?
are the Boots of Swiftness viable on any champion? i never saw them in any competitive stream or in a good build.
Consider being 50% slowed for 1 second. Then, you'd cross 50% of the distance you'd normally do.
Tenacity would make this 50% slow for 0.65 seconds. Means, you'd cross 67.5% of the distance you'd normally cross.
Swiftness passive makes this a 37.5% slow for 1 second. Means you'd cross 62.5% of the distance you'd normally cross.
Conclusion. Even against a full slow-based team, Tenacity will always outclass Swiftness. If you aquire Tenacity through alternate items rather than Mercury's Treads, you could consider them against high-slow based teams. However, there aren't many teams like that out there and the other tenacity items are kinda bad atm.
I agree with you.
I really think they are outclassed by every other type of boot, but they have a teensy tiny place, although with the new 'alacrity' enchantment, boots 3 are even more fringe. I know for a fact that bruiseleet runs them on 90% of his cho'gath games.
Outside of cho, though, I can't think of any champions that would benefit from boots 3 over other boots.
P.S. sorry for my very very bad english
