Are Arcane Boots Underpowered?

Arcane Boots are level 60 items with the following effects:

  • +8 armor
  • 15 to 18% increased MS
  • 10% to 15% Ward Retention

As a reference, Solarum Greaves are level 67 items with the following effects:

  • +90 armor
  • 15 to 18% increased MS
  • 30% to 45% fire resistance

Given that 1 int increases ward retention by 4%, its ultimately a trade of 82 armor and 30% to 45% fire resistance to what can (kind of) be simplified to 2.5 to 4.5 added intelligence. Honestly, considering this is only half of the effect of intelligence, it’d be more realistic to say 1.25 to 2.25 added intelligence. I feel like this is too big of a jump for 7 items level. Granted, some consideration needs to be given to the rarity of the stat, but while ward retention is hard to get on its own, intelligence isn’t. Should Arcane boots be buffed?

Yeah, I think it’d probably be reasonable to significantly increase the ward reasonable it’s a more useable figure for both Int-based and non-Int-based classes. Maybe buff it to 40%-60%?
