take an educated guess.

Tipp: The answer starts with "n" and ends with "o"

because all of the other boots provide hard to get stats, and are thus just better.

The movement wont stack, but the other unique passives will.

Honestly? people hate far too much on zerkers grieves.

In situations and games where the other team is low on CC or will have a hard time punishing you Zerker's boots can be legit choices on characters like Udyr, TF, or even Ashe.

Not kidding. Many high elo players build these boots fairly often.

I can definately see zerker on TF and maybe ashe(i prefer swiftness personally) but otherwise it is usually a different choice. TF is about bombing yellow cards and killing people before they can respond and you want all the attack speed you can get for his E.

Malady still sucks though, even for TF.

I seem to recall Phreak saying that attack speed has excellent itemization. Honestly I don't know what he meant, but I guess that means it's cheaper than other stats. Whatever.

You're going to want Merc Treads in almost every situation, or maaaaybe Ninja Tabi.

This is completely wrong, even low CC teams will have high magic damage, making the magic resist on Merc Treads far better than 25% attack speed, which is a pathetic amount to begin with that isn't helped by the fact that a dagger nearly provides as much IAS.

Because zerk vs tabi,
You'll only increase 25% of your chance to miss 12%+ of time.

zerk vs merc is out of league.
