Welcome to my first guide on Dotafire. I am still new to dota and this guide is for my actually favorite champ in dota, Wraith King (But i will still call him Skeleton King because he is Skeleton King). Skeleton king has a hard earlygame, which can be made much easier by a good build, but huge potential lategame to carry games. He is basically a tanky carry for your team.
+ One of the best lategames
+ One of the most amazing ults
+ Great stun
+ He was :( a skeleton
+ Gets constantly buffed
- If he wouldn't have his stun, he would be 100% useless earlygame
- Very high mana costs
- Must get near enemies to deal most of his damage
- Playing vs 2 ranged in lane basically means you are ****ed
- GIVE US SK BACK!!!
The new SK-Build is centered around Mask of Madness and the potentional damage it gives you. Movement Speed and Attack Speed, all stats Skeleton King needs to catch up.
Skeleton King can jungle at lvl 1 but I wouldn't do it. He is way to slow and this means he will not get enough gold for lategame, where he shines. Of course, his stun is great for ganks, but the fact that he wants so much farm is more important.
Of course, later in the game, you can easily start farming the jungle.
Things you do pre your reach your dominating stage are farming the lane, farming the jungle if you can't farm the lane and spam the **** on the enemy with the Wraithfire Blast+ Soul Ring combo. You are here to get as much kills as possible with that.
Also one thing, your vampiric aura sets up for nice Roshan attemps.
Stun one, activate all your ****, run at him, kill him. Rinse and repeat. Your job is to kill everything what is moving in teamfights. With Heart of Tarrasque and Reincarnation, people basically can't kill you while you are smashing their faces. Just focus down the enemy carries and win this way the game.
So, finally, my first guide at Dotafire is finished. I hope you enjoyed it and now know more about Skeleton King. If you don't like it tell me what you don't like so I can make it better.
