I don't know...

I don't know either. I do know that this is not a viable build for Athena jungle.
Kriega1 (126) | May 10, 2019 11:24am
Why are you building book of thoth on *Athena jungle? Especially with only 1 other mana item in the build?

Try this instead: Shoes of the Magi, Stone of Binding (or Dynasty Plate Helm), Breastplate of Valor (or Dynasty Plate Helm if you get Shoes of Focus instead of Shoes of the Magi), Void Stone, Ethereal Staff, Spear of Desolation (or Divine Ruin).

Lategame sell Stone of Binding for Book of the Dead or a defence item like Magi's Cloak or a counter item like Winged Blade etc... Can sell boots for speed elixir and another situational.

Probably wouldn't build Stone of Binding on Athena for Jungle, but you can start with Dynasty Plate and sell for high damage items like Spear of Desolation, Bancroft's, or another defense item.
Kriega1 (126) | June 1, 2019 8:23am
Ok maybe not first item after boots, but I don't see a problem building stone of binding after dynasty.

What's arena jungle?
Gulfwulf (81) | May 12, 2019 2:44am
Those buff camps on either side of the map. Surely you remember those.
