You wouldn't want Power Treats on Sky. If your playing Sky as a strong support for a very good carry you'll want to get an Energy Booster at the side shop before brown boots to do ultimate harassment. Something you should be doing against Sky in lane is using a magic wand. Always remember to weave attacks with arcane bolt when chasing people. If your team isn't trash and actually reacts Sky can be a very strong roamer for ganks after you harass your lane. I would open up with Arcanes and a Rod of Atos. The rod is very good for stacking slows, catching out players, 350+ max HP and landing your ultimate without relying on your team to combo. Rod is an instant cast no projectile and basically screen wide range. The scepter on Sky seems more trolly than anything honestly. If your not being completely rolled you don't need to stack 2-3 Ults on a single target and be useless the rest of the team fight due to no MP. You should burst one target with your team then be spamming, slowing or silencing the next target to give your team a higher success rate in the fight. If you get an item like etheral blade you'll only need one ult to melt someone down. My third item on Sky would be an etheral blade or a sheep stick depending on the situation.

I was looking at the top sky players and they apparently have a preference for Power Treads. Is it for the attack speed or the switch? I always have mana problems early game and Arcane Boots solve them a bit. Treads doesn't word well for me, tough. So why choose Treads?

I really love your build! Chronosphere + Mystic Flare is absolutely the best, the combo which melted TI4 XD. +1

What about the all time classic combo with Legion Commander? I mean, when she uses Duel and then you cast Mystic Flare? That usually secures a kill for her and grants her bonus damage.

I was Played a game as OD laning against a skywrath Mage and well the Intel stealing should be bad of skywrath. And OD can also disjoint sky's spells if he inprission's him self I still had trobles in lane because of the shere amount of damage he was throwing at me. Anyway I was just not sure I'd OD should be under the foes area that all.

Great guide. You should add Silencer to the enemies section. His int steal reduces your mana pool and damage from arcane bolt, and of course he'll silence you every ----ing time.



Added him, thanks!

Maybe add Omniknight to the enemies section, seeing as Repel is really bad for you. Otherwise, good guide.
