Default Boots of quickness for SCs

What is the value of Boots of quickness for a SC? While they double his attack rate, they do the same as far as his fatigue is concerned. Besides, 10 water gems seem a bit expensive for an average SC.

What is the best combination for the use of this magic item?

All suggestions appreciated!

There are at least 4 cases when quickness is a viable buff. 1: the damage output is so high that quickness makes the thug kill his enemies before passing out. 2: you have enough reinvigoration anyways and the damage increase is enough to warrant it. 3: your thug has 0 enc, like a gargoyle or tartarian. 4: your thug is weilding a life draining weapon so the extra attack gives more fatigue back than it costs, for example the ageless Olm pretender can buff quickness, a thug weilding athames or wraith sword and so on. An sc buffing soul vortex works too.

In CBM, the items that reduce encumbrance rather than provide reinvigoration: the owl quill and the weightless mail, they combo well with quickness since enc is reduced before quickness doubles it and the effect is therefore effectively doubled. For example a thug with base enc 3 and an owl quill will reduce that to 1 which quickness doubles to 2, without the owl quill it would double to 6 so the effective reduction is 4. This combos well with a light e bless or a cheap reinvig item.
