Mobility or Swiftness?

Both these boots grant speed. But the question is: is the mobility enough to outrun the swiftness?

I prefer mobility since with Alacrity, you can get the boots of mobility to become as fast as an unenhanced Swiftness.

If you can't run away from that, you're screwed anyway. But with the Mobility passive, it allows you to get to the battle field quicker, by around 2 times the amount.

Boots of Mobility are significantly better.

That's a very out-of-date link. Swiftness now gives you a reduction to slowing effects, which is hawt.

It depends on whether you need to be fast in a teamfight or just fast to move in between lanes.

Mobility speed dies as soon as you get hit or hit something, so if you're someone like jungle Alistar, mobility boots are probably better since you need to get to move from lane to lane as quick as possible and don't really need the speed once you engage and the cc kicks in. If you're someone like Singed, however, you may want to consider Swiftness(over Mobility, not in general) since it helps your damage to be able to run around during the actual teamfight.

Also, mobility boots are VERY easy to outrun if you have a ranged basic attack or a single ranged ability.
