  • On level 1, can target allied non-hero units and buildings. On level 2, can additionally target allied heroes.
  • Units can be directly targeted. The effect then chases the unit. Buildings cannot be directly targeted, the ground is targeted instead.
  • The targeted unit`s priority is lowered, meaning it is attacked as the last auto attack target by other units.
  • Both are visible and audible to everyone. The visual effect is also visible on teleporting invisible enemies.
  • Also marks the point on the mini-map for allies. The mark is in the player`s color and lasts as long as the channeling does.
  • When the target unit dies or changes ownership during the channeling, the teleport gets cancelled, wasting the cooldown and mana cost.
    • Since buildings are not directly targeted, the destruction of the building does not cancel the teleport.


Because of its Teleport ability Boots of Travel is a very effective item for split pushing because of its ability to teleport to allied creeps. In end game situations it is a very powerful item for this reason, and that replaces the need for a player to dedicate an item slot for a Town Portal Scroll.

Tinker`s ability to Rearm Teleport allows him to split push everywhere on the map, and recover quickly at Fountain.

Beastmaster will sometimes obtain Boots of Travel because of the ability to Teleport to his own Hawk in combination with his strong ganking spells.




  • Boots of Travels is useful on all heroes during the very late game, where it is needed to make desperate pushes or defenses, especially if one or both teams are dead or away from their bases.
