Does anyone even use the Tenacity items?

Here's the rub with these items:

Merc treads will always be better, because you don't have to alter your build to grab them. Instead of (for example) Zerker boots, you can just get merc treads instead. In order to get the other tenacity items, you either have to:

1) hold off your core build item(s)
2) wait till you've finished those items and play an additional ~5-10m without tenacity, to get either: 25% AS, 20 MPen, or some other small benefit.

35 tenacity is just so much bigger than anything else you can build boots into.


QFT. Unless you need other boots for some reason, you're better off getting merc treads for your Tenacity, or forgoing Tenacity entirely. And it's hard to think of anyone who needs other boots except perhaps Jax with Ninja Tabi.

Not only that, there are champs who pretty much excel with Mercs, like Irelia, Singed, just about any tank...

I don't use them, mostly because I can't find them :/

They need their own section in the shop. Or perhaps under movement?

Theoretically, Cloak and Dagger could be good on champions that actually want the stats- like perhaps Tryndamere.

On the right champion, I could see an early Berzerker's Greaves and a C&D making a dangerous combination.
