Choosing Purifying Bracers over fellow “water” support item Tidecaller’s Mark means giving up a lot of defensive stats in exchange for a hefty amount of cooldown reduction and an extremely powerful “panic button” in Purification that can single-handedly save an otherwise doomed ally. The massive 90-second cooldown is a significant drawback, however.

Recommended Heroes and/or Situation:

Water items are to be taken over wind items when your priority is protecting your damage dealer(s) at all costs. Devotion mitigates some of the gold lost by your ally when they have to share bounties with you, and Tidal Force will keep nearby allies topped off, reducing the need to teleport back to base.

Purifying Bracers in particular is great for supporting a fragile damage dealer, as the CDR will keep your CC abilities off cooldown and Purification will save them from even the most sticky of situations. That said, you’ll be giving up a lot of defense by foregoing Tidecaller’s Mark, so we recommend Purifying Bracers for very skilled support players who can make the most out of Purification. Also, support players who need lots of CDR can approach the cap with just Purifying Bracers and The Aegis, focusing the rest of their build on utility or hefty defense.

  1. With Valiance arcana and Aegis, you can easily hit max CDR with this. Add a defensive boots and you’ll have an a tanky utility support with 3 more remaining item slots. With CDR runes and CDR boots, you can also hit max CDR with this while leaving 4 slots for customization. This will open up a lot of possibilities for utility supports to branch out. Holy of Holies on Alice comes to mind.
