Skyler is an excellent choice for a balanced gameplay strategy. He can damage as many as five Gloo walls within a 50m range through his Riptide Rhythm ability.

Players can also use Skyler for a better defense as his ability initiates an HP recovery with the deployment of a Gloo wall. The HP recovery starts at four points.

Skyler’s Riptide Rhythm has a CD of 60 seconds.

1) Alok (Drop the Beat)
