The next thing you should highlight about Skywrath Mage is his concussive shot. Even though this skill can also be found as other heroes’, the concussive shot that Skywrath has is a different one.

For that reason, te Ancient Seal that Skywrath has can be combined with many types of skills such as Concussive Shot, Mystic Flare or his ultimate skill, or the Arcane Bolt.

With his ability, he is able to make a great damage up to 1000 points with only one beat. Amazing, right?
In addition, Mystic Flare is also effective to take the enemies’ HP and kill them with that. The Mystic Flare can be used in a small scope or range of distance between Skywrath Mage and the enemies, thus it is difficult for the enemies to avoid the attack. If you want to make the greatest damage, you can combine the Mystic Flare with the Concussive Shot that will decrease the enemy’s movement speed.
