Casts high damage physical spells on a single target.
Bound to his courtly duties, Dragonus could only dream in secret of restoring his beloved to her rightful throne. Deadly and only protected by the Shield of the Scion, Skywrath Mage quickly destroys his enemies with a barrage of powerful magic. Blasting concentrated Arcane Bolts at his targets and crippling them momentarily with a long range Concussive Shot. Those who stand in his way would be muted by an Ancient Seal, exposing their vulnerability before the Skywrath Mage annihilates and vaporizes them in the storm of Mystic Flare.

Bio[]

Skywrath Mage minimap iconDragonus, the Skywrath Mage
▶️ "Even on this fallen field, I dedicate my powers to the lofty Skywrath."
A highly placed mage in the court of the Ghastly Eyrie, Dragonus lives a troubled existence. Sworn by birth to protect whoever sits within the Nest of Thorns, he hates the current Skywrath queen with all his soul. As a youth, high-born, he was a friend and companion to the eldest Skywrath princess, Shendelzare, first in line for the Nest. He had loved her warmly and unshakably, but as his studies took hold, his mind turned to arcane learning and the mastery of Skywrath sorcery.

Obsessed with matters aetherial, he missed the mundane signs of courtly treachery that hinted at a plot against Shendelzare, and lost his chance to foil it. When the court was shaken by a swift and violent coup, he emerged from his studies to discover his oldest and dearest friend had been lost to him. The Nest of Thorns now belonged to Shendelzare's ruthless younger sister, and Dragonus could do nothing. The magic of the Skywrath Mage serves only the sworn protector of the Skywrath scion, so to act against the Nest would render him helpless. He clings to his post, believing it to be the best hope of one day restoring his true love to her rightful place. Meanwhile, his secret is known only to the goddess Scree'auk, whose magic it was transformed Shendelzare from a crippled physical creature into an embodiment of pure vengeful energy.

While he dreams of restoring his beloved queen to the Ghastly Eyrie, he dreams even more desperately of restoring Shendelzare herself to a fully healed physical form. The duplicity of his role at court tortures him, for he is a noble and good-hearted creature; but the worst torture of all is imagining the hatred that Vengeful Spirit must hold in her heart for him.

Within the Ghastly Eyrie's endless intrigue, only the clever and calm can hope to survive.

  • The bolt travels at a speed of 500.
    • The projectile has a 325 radius flying vision. This vision does not linger.
    • Also provides the same vision at the target's location for 3.34 seconds upon successfully hitting it.
  • Checks Skywrath Mage's Intelligence attribute symbol intelligence upon releasing the projectile.
    • This means that the projectile's damage is set upon launch and does not adapt when losing or gaining intelligence.
  • This is how much damage Arcane Bolt deals with a certain amount of intelligence (before reductions):

  • Arcane Bolt first deals the damage, then applies the debuff.
    • The spell lifesteal value of successive casts on the same target does not stack but refreshes the duration.
  • Whenever Arcane Bolt is cast, 3 different random targets within the search radius, prioritizing heroes, are also targeted by other Arcane Bolts.
    • The search radius is centered around the primary target, not around Skywrath Mage.
    • Since it uses a defined radius and is not based on the cast range, it is not affected by cast range modifying abilities (e.g. Aether Lens icon Aether Lens).
    • Treats clones and illusions as heroes and creep-heroes as creeps.
    • The other Arcane Bolts are released only if valid targets are found within the search radius.
  • TALENT
    Fully affects Animal Courier Radiant minimap icon Couriers upon learning the Arcane Bolt pierces spell immunity Talent talent.
  • Considers the extra Arcane Bolt casts of the Aghanim's Scepter icon Ability Upgrade as being unit-targeted directly by Skywrath Mage. This means that if both bounded heroes are targeted by the first set of bolts, a total of 3 sets of bolts will be cast.

Recommended Items[]

Starting items:

  • Tango icon Tango gives health sustain to Skywrath Mage and to lane mates who are constantly getting harassed by the enemy.
  • Healing Salve icon Healing Salve restores health to Skywrath Mage and allies.
  • Clarity icon Clarity ensure that you do not run out of mana while laning. Due to how spammable Arcane Bolt is, having the mana to use it consistently can allow you to harass and zone out your lane opponents.
  • Iron Branch icon Iron Branch gives a helpful boost to all your attributes for a cheap price, and later build into a Magic Wand should you need one.
  • Blood Grenade icon Blood Grenade provides early damage, AOE DOT, and 15% slow alongside Skywrath's Concussive Shot that can help secure an early kill and first bounty runes.

Early game:

  • Arcane Boots icon Arcane Boots should be purchased as quickly as possible, as they expand the size of Skywrath's mana pool and allow him to replenish a portion of it occasionally (as well as that of his allies).
  • Magic Stick icon Magic Stick can instantly restore some of Skywrath's health and mana. The health replenishment is crucial given his very small health pool, while the mana replenishment can allow him to cast one or two more spells in an emergency.
  • Null Talisman icon Null Talisman gives cheap stats and magic damage for a stronger early game; purchasing multiple Null Talismans is recommended for buffing Arcane Bolt.

Mid game:

  • Magic Wand icon Magic Wand grants all the same benefits of Magic Stick, along with attributes and larger charge storage. If Skywrath is given low farm priority, building one of these is cheap and effective.
  • Rod of Atos icon Rod of Atos pads out Skywrath Mage's health and Intelligence, and can root enemies to keep them inside Mystic Flare.
  • Aghanim's Shard icon Aghanim's Shard for Skywrath unlocks Shield of the Scion, a passive that grants stacks each time he deals magic damage to an enemy hero with an ability; each stack grants +2 intelligence and +0.2 armor per stack, and each charge stacks independently. If Skywrath Mage is struggling to survive, this can help him tremendously. If possible, obtain via a Tormentor.
  • Witch Blade icon Witch Blade gives him intelligence, armor and passive that synergies with Arcane Bolt and scales into the late game.
  • Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon Eul's Scepter of Divinity provides much-needed movement speed, Intelligence and mana regeneration, along with a defensive tool and a disable. Can build into Wind Waker icon Wind Waker for improvements to the aforementioned stats including a more effective defensive tool.

Late game:

  • Aghanim's Scepter icon Aghanim's Scepter effectively doubles Skywrath Mage's damage output, making him much better versus multiple opponents.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon Scythe of Vyse grants a large bonus of Intelligence and mana regeneration to Skywrath Mage, and the hard disable is great for setting up kills for both his spells and his allies.

Situational items:

  • Ghost Scepter icon Ghost Scepter prevents Skywrath Mage from being targeted by physical attackers, and can upgrade into Ethereal Blade icon Ethereal Blade for a powerful nuke and damage-amplification ability with some spare gold.
  • Force Staff icon Force Staff can be used to reposition and set up spells or as an escape tool for both Skywrath Mage and his allies.
  • Bloodstone icon Bloodstone greatly greatly improves Skywrath Mage's survivability (through raw HP and spell lifesteal) and mana pool. Its active grants higher Spell Lifesteal, further increasing his survivability in difficult fights.
  • Veil of Discord icon Veil of Discord grants cheap stat bonuses and softens enemies up for Skywrath Mage to nuke down more easily. It then can be built into the Shiva's Guard icon Shiva's Guard
  • Shiva's Guard icon Shiva's Guard gives Skywrath Mage a small increase in his attributes, health regeneration as well as powerful survivability against physical damage, while Freezing Blast keeps enemies in range of his spells, whilst taking more damage from them.
  • Phylactery icon Phylactery gives Skywrath bonus heath and heath regen alongside mana, mana regen and magic resist. Phylactery's ability Empower Spell causes the next single target spell every 6 seconds to slow them for 50% for 1.5 seconds and apply an additional 150 spell damage. This is incredibly strong for Skywrath, helping him land spells and stay on top of the enemy.
  • Dagon icon Dagon synergizes with Skywrath Mage's ability to nuke down targets by giving him attributes, spell lifesteal, and an additional nuke, though the gold and mana cost can be an issue (particularly when upgrading it).
  • Aether Lens icon Aether Lens fuels Skywrath Mage's spells with mana, mana regeneration and extends his cast range, increasing his safety radius and letting him better follow up on Concussive Shot. It can be later upgraded into Ethereal Blade icon Ethereal Blade.
  • Octarine Core icon Octarine Core gives him more health, mana and mana regeneration, and lets him spam out spells more frequently.
  • Blink Dagger icon Blink Dagger greatly increases Skywrath Mage's ability to position himself for casting his spells, allowing him to extend the range of his already long-reaching spells. It can allow him to get the drop on enemies and nuke them down with very little warning, or escape from pursuing enemies provided that he can activate it before taking player damage. Can build into Arcane Blink icon Arcane Blink, for the high intelligence.
  • Kaya icon Kaya increases Skywrath Mage's already considerable damage output and amplifies his much-needed mana regeneration (and spell lifesteal, if he has an item such as Bloodstone icon Bloodstone). Can build into Yasha and Kaya icon Yasha and Kaya for better mobility, Kaya and Sange icon Kaya and Sange for more survivability or Meteor Hammer icon Meteor Hammer for more offense.

Trivia[]

  • In the start of Vengeful Spirit minimap icon Vengeful Spirit's lore, the Skywrath is stated as being hateful and vengeful, yet Dragonus carries none of these traits, and is instead mild-mannered and tempered.
  • In DotA, Dragonus's hero model was a Dragonhawk Rider, a unit of the blood elves. Skywrath Mage and Invoker were related due to them both being blood elves. Blood elves are also a playable race in "World of Warcraft".[1]
  • The Skywrath race did not exist in Warcraft universe; rather, it was created in the Dota 2 lore for Vengeful Spirit minimap icon Vengeful Spirit, and then grandfathered into DotA afterward. Skywrath Mage was one of the first heroes created in DotA following the opening of the beta for Dota 2.
  • A silhouette of what appears to be Skywrath Mage can be seen in Bristleback minimap icon Bristleback's splash artwork, seemingly still having a beta model/texture.
