The Skeleton king dominating guide

With this guide you will be an amazing CARRY, who can kill pretty much every body so quick that you won't even have to waste your ulti.



-Very usefull pasive (lifesteal+crits)
-Amazing stun/slow with a great range
-You can ressucitate!!
-A fair amount of HP for a carry


-Mana issue early game
-very reliable on your stun otherwise people just run away from you
-Need a good farming/jungling


First you should head to the lane close from the jungle.
On early game, just focus on last hit (and deny) play safe, you don't want to lose any money!
just keep your mana in urgency case, stun to survive, or if you're SURE your going to get first blood. This is really important.

You can start jungling around level 4, but if your ennemy don't harrass much just stay on your lane.

Buy the sage mask first to fix your mana problem, eventually buy a ring of basilius which you can turn into vladimir's offering in late game.


Around lvl 10 you can really jungle hard, if your turrets aren't in danger. It will bring you the money you need to become really powerful. You can also gank mid if you want, with your 2 seconds stun and a good team mate this is almost a free kill.
When you'll have the orchid malevolance and your power treads, you'll be really powerfull.
And then the dominating will begin :)


-Always watch your mana to make sure you can use your ulti to ressucitate in case of need!

-You'll have around 2500 HP put notice that you're not tanky at all, the only things that make you tanky is your amazing lifesteal! Keep this in mind, you can make pentakill, but don't go alone against 5 ennemies!

-Around lvl 20, you'll still need a lot of money, don't hesitate to jungle, you really make tons of damage! You can even solo roshan!

-If your ulti is up, and if you have enought mana: TOWER DIVE!
With you nobody is safe anywhere, you must fear nothing! But only whith your ulti up!

-Most of people forget your ulti, take advantage of it! But remember to play more safe if you don't have it, you don't want to die, do you?

Personnal opinion

Just woaw oO!
I've not played so much with him, but i think he's my favorite!
This champion is a monster: huge lifesteal, really nice attack speed, huge crits and even a fair amount of HP.
This champion really seems to be OVERPOWERED to me :)
Hope you'll like him as much as I do :)

GoOd LuCK AnD HaVe FuN FeLla'!!
