Trivia

In the earlier versions of Dota, Arcane Boots were known as 'Arcane Ring'. This item underwent a name change and some adjustments in its mechanics before becoming the familiar Arcane Boots in Dota 2. The concept of providing mana regeneration and a boost to allies mana was preserved, but the name transition from 'Arcane Ring' to 'Arcane Boots' occurred during the evolution of the item in Dota's history.
