Dragonus is a sky-bound sorcerer astute in the arts of arcane warfare. Mystical in nature and veiled in secret motives he joined the sentinel to battle the scourge. He is said to come from the ancient bloodline of blood elves that has ascended to unknown heights in the arts of mystical magic. It's suspected that Invoker and Dragonus were prodigy's of ancient time and were fighting for the prestige title of the supreme mage. The art of his supreme knowledge of magic enables him to seal any magic and his Mystic Flare is capable of burning any foe in matter of seconds. Many allies are proud to have strode alongside this mythical being, but few enemies have lived to survive the full extent of his mystical arsenal.

  1. keep concussive shot at lv 1, needed for slow debuff only
    stay with arcane bolt & ancient seal
    use mystic flare wisely

    with dagon bloodstone
    that new shoes (mspeed, armor, heal. all you can eat in one packet)
    this guy kick in the ass.

    dont forget add some escapee mechanism item

  2. coz imo
    arcane bolt lv4 - better cooldown and do decent damage
    concussive shot lv1 - slow 40% at all lv
    ancient seal lv4 - with dagon & arcane bolt spam => ROCKS!

    mystic flare - use wisely, 800 manacost at lv3 with small aoe.
    this is why bloodstone needed
    still better when combine with concussive shot

    i bet this guy got nerf soon

  3. New boot + linkin = ownage

  4. My item build is ;

    1st item -   Tranquil Boot/Arcane Boot
    2nd item -   Bloodstone
    3rd item -   Dagon
    4th item -    Guinsoo5th item -    Linkin / Heart6th item -    Shiva Guard / Dagon raise till end

  5. i would personally prefer PT, the new item with 2 staff-of-wiz (magic amply), dagon upgraded later (agree with zaw), shiva, orchid and bloodstone/Heart depending on the enemy.. :)

  6. *the new item i was referring to was the veil... so not the 2-staff-of-wiz xD my mistake..

  7. lols.. item of that is youjizz.com ahahah fack u all

  8. mine is:  

    force staff
    arcane boots
    linkin sphere

  9. mine is:

    1st item-  salve 100
    2nd item-  clarity
    3rd item-  tango
    4th item-  sentry wards
    5th item-  observer wards
    6th item-  scroll of town portal

  10. 1st item no item bobo mo

  13. Item Build: Guinsoo of the Vyse,Dagon 5, Power Treads(Intelligence),Bloodstone,Shiva's Guard,Linken's Sphere

  14. He needs lots of mana to spam and also high int to boost arcan bolt. My items would be as follows:
    ring of basilisc
    2 x nul tulisman
    Arcane boots
    dagon (with ancient seal is realy usable)
    Shivas armor
    buy ghost sceper if you need escape hard caries (cheap and provide additional 8attributes)
    At 25 level hes got some 2500 manapool and arcaine bolt does nearly 400 dmg

  15. yeah, 20 second cooldown with 800 mana , Mystic flare will definitely be recalculated, you cant regen 800 mana in 20 secs, except for bloodstone.. maybe they fix the cooldown like what they did to Kaldr, the Ancient apparition

  29. this is a nice build :)

  30. MKB? youre not a carry with skywrath. There are 2 imba ways to play skywrath; if you get enough money. Method 1: Bottle; Arcane boots, Shiva (start with platemail then staff) Guinsoo. and If you get more then lothar for survival, Eye Of Skadi for decent upgrade to everything and HoT for a crapload hp, Shiva gives the armor. Buying dagon is stupid since you have powerful 2 sec nukes; other method is bottle; arcane; shiva; veil of discord; stygian; assault for crapload of dmg with ult

  31. No its not. Any build that says to buy dagon with this hero and suggests other boots than arcane is terrible. Always get bottle, ONLY FARM mid A LOT, get arcane, then shiva. Other items such as eye of skadi, ethereal, HoT etc... are great, however theres the other build where you simply rape the enemys armor; but always get bottle arcane and shiva

  32. My Items for Skywrath:
    Intel Treads
    Urn of shadows
    Dagon lvl3
    Etheral blade(believe me the spell dmg is epic)

    Late game sell earn and buy skadi.. GG

  33. My items for skywraith:
    arcane boots
    urn of shadows
    kellens dagger

  34. Ethereal






  35. 5 bloddstones 1 BoT

  36. haiz all not good.. 1st item mantle int 4 go mid.
    then buy boot then buy null talisman 3 then sell 1 mantle int. after that peseverence then see what hero u dealing with. if got so many skill buy linken.. if not buy soulbooster so can get bloodstone. once u c u doominating the game buy hex. if u find urself dificult not to many skillerbuy ghost. if u think u got money to spare buy shiva if u wan to play safe buy radiance. but for me i will buy bot after i done with hex. -KODO-

  37. My Item build :
    1st item - Heart Of Tarasque
    2nd item - Heart Of Tarasque
    3rd item - Heart Of Tarasque
    4th item - Heart Of Tarasque
    5th item - Heart Of Tarasque
    6th item - Heart Of Tarasque
