Well i think skye is still a god since even after dmg nerf her only counters are assassins like taka and bf.
And I loved your guide i hope you keep it up to date(you can start with putting ardan as a high tier threat. because of his perk there is noway for a cp skye to kill an ardan also he can easily bodyblock skye’s attacks)

And i agree with the other guy ardan is tbh the hardest support to kill for skye as he heals for every time he takes damage so its not very effective against him and currently more supports are getting echos so its harder to get out of 2 gaunlets huh. Next catherine is the easiest support to kill like what the other guy said as skye A can go through her bubble to the very end. :)

Clockwork is actually very useful compared to shatterglass. Clockwork reduces colldown of all her skills. For example her A from 5 sec to 3 sec so basically you can spam A and B. Shatterglass has more damage however cooldown makes skye the best hero. And what rabk are u anyways.

Damage is even more important after the nerf, which is why Shatterglass is more important than ever. Shaving a few seconds off your abilities isn't worth it if you're damage output suffers. If you're going the glass canon route you can maybe take a Clockwork as a third or fourth crystal item, but it's definitely not core.

And why are you asking about my rank?

I noticed you put Ardan as a low tier threat but he is actually really dangerous. His passive allows him to heal back a chunk of the damage you do to him making him one of the best tanks to counter Skye. Only better tanks are Lance(with his B passive/active) or Grace(if she has a shatter with her A up).

This doesn't quantify him as more of a "threat". It's not about how hard he is to drop, it's about the degree that he's able counter you. Passive health regen isn't a counter, the only real dangerous thing is his Ultimate but that can be blocked or dodged. Out of all the support classes he's among the least problematic in my experience.

Oh and additionally, you put Catherine as a medium threat saying "Do not attack while her stormguard is up" but it's actually completely fine as your damage is in small increments instead of large chunks, allowing you to bypass her shield(CP Skye is the best counter to Cath probably).

The reason that's included in the description is because you can be damaging nearby allies due to the reflect, pre-nerf this was very dangerous and can still be an issue if you're not careful.

I made an account to comment here right after i heard about the 2.7 nerf. Any changes you'd make to her build in light of this HUGE crystal scale nerf on her A? Like for example would maxing her C to increase lock-on range be more viable now?

Still playing Skye to get a feel for her post-update performance...the damage reduction is really noticeable. Needs more testing

In the range section I have also noticed that you put Lyra as slightly less range than Skye. Her range can also vary, being low in the early game, going back to normal(what it was before the change) when she gets lvl 2 on her ult, and inreasing a bit more(making her range about the same as Skye's I believe) if she chooses to max out her ult. I know, all of these range changes can be confusing but I'm pretty sure that Lyra and Baron are the only heroes whose ranges can change.

In the range section, you put Baron as slightly less, but when he gets points on his ult, he will actually out range you.

Thanks for pointing that out, I don't play Baron very often hadn't noticed that detail. Will fix it :)

Congrats. You got featured twice in a row! Good guide although maybe you should add a WP build? What do you think of my WP build right now? Currently, it revolves around a Breaking Point, a Tornado Trigger, a Tyrant's Monocle, Journey Boots, and a Reflex Block plus whatever else I need, overdriving the B first with the other abilities being situational.

Thanks ^_^
Yes, I've been considering adding a WP build and I probably will in the future, still need to do a bit more experimentation. Believe it or not this is the exact build I've been going with, definitely a good one! Agree with overdriving Suri Strike first, I'd also rank up Death From Above when you can and overdrive it.

I'm a main Skye, but using hybrid kinda build. Seeing this build helps me going through use/against CP Skye. Thanks!

You're welcome.
I'm curious about this hybrid build you use if you care to share? Can't say I'm familiar with any hybrid builds that work well.

You're welcome :)
Having more defense is always better if you are new to Skye, if the lane is too busy you can always try jungling to ease into it.
Good luck!
