Demon Shoes for Gloo may not look pretty, but it’s what you need if you want to win your Mobile Legends: Bang Bang ranked games.

The recent overhaul of the emblem system has led to unavoidable changes in items and emblem builds for numerous heroes, and tank hero Gloo is no exception.

Usually played in the EXP lane, this hero acts as a dependable frontline with respectable damage capabilities.

Now the question arises — Why is Demon Shoes, a boots enhancement typically tailored for mage heroes, considered essential for this tank hero in the current meta?

Why building Demon Shoes for Gloo is actually a good idea, even though it’s not recommended in pro setups

Gloo has been highly favored in higher ranks due to his ability to relentlessly poke enemies with his first skill, Slam, Slam. This powerful skill not only inflicts damage and slows down foes but also provides healing to Gloo.

However, the drawback lies in its significant mana consumption.

Previously, Gloo went for the support emblem tree, which offered hybrid regeneration to manage the mana issue.

Unfortunately, with the revamped emblem system, the hybrid regen subtalent was removed, drastically altering the way Gloo is played. The reduced mana regen meant less frequent use of Slam, Slam, which affected Gloo’s dominance in the game.

To address this concern, Demon Shoes come to the rescue. This item offers +6 mana regen and boasts a passive effect that enables Gloo to regenerate 10% of his mana with each kill or assist, and 4% on minion kills.

By equipping Demon Shoes for Gloo, you can now be more aggressive without constantly worrying about monitoring his mana levels.

Moreover, the presence of Demon Shoes allows Gloo to avoid unnecessary trips back to the base when his HP is low.

Instead, he can repeatedly cast Slam, Slam to gradually regenerate his HP and get back to the fight.
