6.81 - Standard Skywrath Mage (Middle) Build
By Torte de Lini
Skywrath Mage is a damage-dealer who goes in the middle lane for the fast levels. Skywrath Mage is best known to gank with his incredible long-range slow: Concussive Shot and his silencing ability: Ancient Seal that causes foes to be weak to magic damage.

During the laning phase, be sure to use Arcane Bolt to punish your enemy for trying to last-hit while also solidifying your own gold gain. Items such as Force Staff and Eul's Scepter of Divinity further amplify your maneuverability and magic-damage.

Skywrath Mage suffers from lack of health and survivability as he is very frail and susceptible to ganks. In addition, your direct counter, Pugna, can destroy your entire arsenal with his ability, Nether Ward, as your ultimate can cause you to commit suicide.
