Up until this point, Zeus (as far as I know) was considered the best nuker in the game; even ahead of Bane. Will Skywrath Mage change that?

Skywrath kills any hero in 1 combo at almost any point in the game, nobody comes even close to his nuke.
Born 2 the life. True 2 the code. Bad 2 the bone.

Skywrath destroys Zeus easily, both in a "can I kill this hero faster" situation and "1v1 zeus" situation.

That's why he doesn't have a global ability and aoe farming ability.
A true hero never wavers. My place is at the top.
Bring me a real challenge. CHA

Okay, I thought so too, but I wanted to ask. I'm a fairly capable Zeus player, and nukers are kind of my thing. A friend of mine is super excited about Skywrath Mage, but I feel like I'm the one who's going to be playing as him.

I'm sorry, Zeus. You've been replaced. Maybe. I think Zeus will always have a special place in my heart though.

Or maybe you're over dramatizing the situation and you should realise Zeus is still a perfectly viable of a pick.

If it ain't broke... they'll break it.

He absolutely is, but I feel like after playing Skywrath, Zeus just won't have the same kind of punch I'd expect. On the other hand, playing Zeus, I won't be screaming at my monitor complaining about how I don't have any mana and "**** this 800 mana cost!"

Zeus is cool because his Q is instant, mini stuns and hurts as hell, and his ult is awesome for Killstealing ballerness.

SW mage is cool because e213213214389243821893412 DPS of nuking power

zeus does aoe damage, dragonus does single target

I like Skywrath better because he can silence. He can also force enemies to move away from their spots. If you think about it, he has 2 anti-channeling spells.

All Zeus contributes to a fight is damage.
Jar Jar, you're a genius!

It's a lot of damage. A LOT of damage.
