Once a noble knight protecting his kingdom, the man was thrown into Hell, where he was ripped apart over and over for centuries. Now, Lucifer has thrown him back onto the soil, corrupted and mindless, as King Leoric, the Skeleton King. He marches on, leading his minions with an unfaltering gaze, knowing only one thing: the orders given to him by the dark lord himself. Able to cripple his opponents by drawing power from the fiery depths of hell itself, King Leoric is a major threat on the battlefield. His mighty blade allows him and others in his presence to drain the blood of their enemies. It is said that he is unkillable, and those who are struck down by his hellfire don't wake up again.
One of my favorite heroes in DOTA. Skel King has 4 great skills that allow him to dps and kinda tank at the same time. Kinda underused nowadays but still viable. This guide will teach you how to play SK on a competitive game.

~ConclusionSkeleton King has 3 skills that allow him to be a good carry hero. He has a stun with a slow, a crit and lifesteal to deal loads of damage and survive because of it. Though he can also be a great tank with a different item build, this is the trend right now at the competitive scene and maybe because he can dps much better than tanking. Having the ability to resurrect doesn't automatically make a hero a tank. In the same way that sniper and morph still stays safely behind the team at the start of battles even after acquiring aegis.

Good luck! And remember, reading guides gives you ideas, but, only thru constant practice does one achieve greatness.
