Current Sorc boots better than the old Sorc boots!

Nunu benefits from MPen more. You aren't auto-attacking for damage with him consistently, even with your buff.

Ice Ball and Absolute Zero are your team fighting skills.

Shields and heals do better with straight AP. Other than that, you are correct.

So what would be better on a hero like Nunu? His ratios are insane so it would be better to have AP or MPen runes?



You'll still want magic pen.

You want Nunu's ult to it the carries/casters because that'll force them to die/run which will allow your team to focus on the tanks.

The closer you 0 MR the MORE %damage INCREASE you'll see. Carries and casters have low MR.

Haunting Guise/Abyssal scepter are good choices because you'll get AP and Magic Pen and defensive stats.

I'd just like to go over for everyone in the community (and one person in particular) why the current sorc boots are better.

Original sorc boots had 25 AP on them. That's it, just 25 AP.

With spell penetration being such a rare stat back then why in the world would you ever take those boots? The damage increase was negligible. You were (and generally still are for many situations) better off grabbing Merc Treads or anything else rather than those.

Even if NOBODY on their entire team for some ridiculous reason buys Magic Resist they will still have base MR as well as their potentially growing MR depending on which champ/runes.

Having 20 less magic resist will simply make you hit harder than 25 AP. So how in the world would 25 AP ever be better if you are truly looking for more damage?

Simply, it never would be.

Right or wrong, community, right or wrong?


Weren't the old boots A LOT cheaper?

Something like 450 extra from Boots of movement whereas mercs 850.

The meta was so CC heavy that most casters died whether or not you had Merc treds once you got stunned in the first place.
