Skud is a Fighter who is capable of dealing destructive damage and excels in single duels. With the help of his allies, Skud can nuke down his opponents easily, however, his lacking in tankiness makes him vulnerable when fighting multiple enemies. Therefore, try not to get caught alone when facing Skud.
Passive – Anabolic Rage
Every 10 seconds, Skuds next normal attack deals an additional 20% damage while restoring his HP and Mana. Each normal attack also reduces the cooldown of his ability by 1 second. Therefore, items with attack speed are suitable choices for Skud
Ability 1 – Furious Charge
Skud charges in the target direction dealing physical damage to the enemies in his path and knocking them into the air for 0.5 seconds. Skud stops charging when he runs into an enemy hero, Skud also gains armor for 3 seconds after casting the skill. Furious Charge can help Skud chase down or run from enemies.
Ability 2 – Power Glove
Skud infuses boiling blood into his gloves, increasing attack speed by 20% and movement speed 10% for 5 seconds. The next normal attack deals an additional physical damage to enemies and reduces their movement speed. Power Glove can be cast before using Furious Charge, in order to instantly slow the enemies and keep them from escaping.
Ultimate – Wild Beast Fury
After charging for a brief period, Skud spins and hits all nearby enemies with his fists dealing physical damage. The skill also deals additional physical damage equal to 15% of the enemies current HP and resets the cooldown on Furious Charge.
Wild Beast Fury can be used to knock off enemies when allies are in danger. Since Wild Beast Fury can reset the cooldown on Furious Charge, the ideal combo is to use Furious Charge first, followed by Power Glove to slow the enemy, then knock him off by using Wild Beast Fury, finally, finish the enemy be using Furious Charge again.
In the early game, Skud can either judge or support allies in lane. As a jungler, Skud can clear the monsters quickly thanks to his insane single target damage. After obtaining a might Golem, Skud should help out allies in lane by using his control abilities in order to build up an early advantage.
In the mid and late game, if the team has a lead, Skud can initiate team fights using Furious Charge. Since Wild Beast Fury can knock enemies away, Skud can sneak attack from behind and push enemies into allies.
If the team is at a disadvantage, Skud should not plunge into battles blindly. Afterall, Skud is a squishy fighter and can easily be killed with out the help of allies.
Instead, he should wait for the enemy Assassins to jump on allies before knocking them off and nuking them down with the help of other teammates. The team can now outnumber the opponenets and finish the fight.
He was a mobile war machine complete with blood running through his veins that was infused with demonic rage.
Skud was Mganga’s proudest creation. Infused with demonic blood, he possessed an astounding destructive power and a thirst for carnage to match. His powerful fists could shake the courage of anyone who attempted to overthrow the dark rule. During the warring years, Skud was summoned to serve as Preyta’s subordinate and lead the Fallen to charge forward.
The battle for the Castle of Alchemy proved to be the pinnacle of Skud’s achievements. Even though he had fewer than one hundred men, he successfully led them to break through the mechanical defenses that were laid by Moen, the arms specialist. Then he single-handedly destroyed ten alchemy puppets and fought his way into the castle interior. At that moment, Omega, who had been undercover for some time, issued an order to attack. Soon Skud and his men were flooded by a sea of steel.
As he watched the Castle of Alchemy’s defense rose again and found himself surrounded by enemies, Skud became infuriated beyond reproach. The demonic blood in his body started boiled and his willpower was ignited. The iron blitz could not stall his progress. The strongest of armor crumpled like paper under his fist. The enraged Skud managed to single-handedly squash the enemy counterattack. Omega grabbed Moen and fled in panic, leaving Skud and his Fallen followers to enjoy the bounty of treasures and resources left by the army.
When the battle finally ended, Skud got the reward he deserved: a set of alchemy gloves forged by Moen himself. Mganga made some adjustments that allowed the alchemy gloves to bond with Skud’s demonic blood, giving him even more violent destructive powers.
“My blood is boiling again!”
