  No Threat
2
SAW saw is very slow, and when he does suppressing fire, he can't move, so he is an easy target.
3
  No Threat
4
Joule Not really a problem. Can stun you if you don't watched out but you can easily stay out of her range.
4
Krul Can be very hard to kill, because he heals all the time and can stun you. But he has a rahter low damage output, so shoudln't really bother you. Just watched out for his throwing sword.
5
  No Threat
6
Adagio Adagio is a ranged hero, so this can make him harder to attack because you will never come close to him. However, he has low damage, so he shouldn't bother you.
6
Skaarf Better aiming and a good timing will give you the advantage.
7
Catherine Catherine has high health and defence so can be very hard to kill. She can also stun you.
7
Ringo Can be dangerous because of his high damage output and his agility to dodge skills. Aim wel
8
Koshka Very speedy and has an abilty to stun you. If you hold some distance you can hurt her enough to so she will flee. Don't try 1 on 1.
8
Petal Not really dangerous but her pets are annoying, you barely can burn her with spitfire because her pets will block it. Howerver, goop is very effective on the pets.
9
Taka Has high damage output and can easily outrun you. Watched out! Don't try 1 on 1
10
Glaive He is a real pain. He can kill you in just 2 seconds. With his afterburn and his insane power he can kill you easily. if you see Glaive, run.

Introduction Top

Skaarf is a little dragon that deals long range and aoe damage. He is a strong yet squishy hero.
The most important thing is aiming, because all his skills are aimed (this can take some practice) and stay away from enemy fire. You should move with your minions to the front and when pushed back, stay behind your turret.
Skaarf is a very strong crystal powered hero with high damaging skills.

Abilities Top

Fan the Flames
Slot: Heroic Perk

Skaarf's abilities burn targets and his basic attacks deal bonus crystal damage to burning targets.
  • Burn: 8 damage per second for 4s.
  • Basic attacks: 2% (+2% of crystal power) of the target's max health as crystal damage.
  • This damage can crit for 2x.
  • Deals reduced damage to Kraken and structures.

Tips
  • You burn your enemies and the burn will refresh and do more damage when you use your basic attacks. So, when someone is running after you, move, then attack, move then attack. This way they will keep taking damage from the burn. Do this only when you can take a few hits or you have Frostburn.

Spitfire
Slot: A

Skaarf spits a fireball that collides with the first hero, structure or boss monster it hits.
  • The fireball damages & passes through smaller minions.
  • Each time it passes through a unit, its damate is reduced to 85% of before.
  • Deals 50% less damage damage to minions.

Tips
  • Long range, so stay behind minions or turrets when there are enemies
  • Aim well and try to predict the path of your enemy

Goop
Slot: B

Skaarf hurls a goop onto the target location. Enemies walking through the sticky substance are slowed. Any of Skaarf's flames will ignite the puddle, dealing burst damage and burning enemies over time.
  • A flaming puddle does not slow enemies as much as a goop puddle
  • Deals half damage to minions & Kraken.

Tips
  • When running, don't put it on fire and put it in front of your enemy, not on your enemy
  • Use it to kill minions in the lane, it hurts them a lot and you will mostly get all the last hits, so you will be swimming in the gold.

{$ability.display_name}
Slot: C

Skaarf inhales for 1.5s, then exhales a huge flames for 3s. Skaarf may move freely while spewing fire.
  • Skaarf gains a quick burst of move speed when wxhaling.
  • While inhaling or exhaling, enemies moving against the current are slowed while allies moving with it are sped up.
  • Skaarf temporarily gains fortified health while channeling.
  • Deals 50% damage to non-heroes.

Tips
  • Get on a short distance with your enemy, otherwies if he flees, you won't hit him.
  • It gets lots of it so it can be used to deal the last hit and steal the Kraken

The game Top

Early game
Start by buying Energy Battery and 2 Halcyon Potion This will give you enough energy and health to stay in the lane for a while. Pick Spitfire as your first ability because Goop won't do any damage without it. When the mining begins you should have enough gold to go to the jungle shop and buy Sprint Boots and a Void Battery. Go back to the lane and farm for more gold.


Mid game
When you have farmed enough gold buy Eve of Harvest and Frostburn. Now your abilities will do a lot of damage and Frostburn will help you pull of that last shot to kill an enemy because it slows them down.
Make sure you also upgrade your boots to Travel Boots while doing all this.
Now it's time to add some more health. Buy Oakheart and work up to Crucible.


Late game
If you have a hard time surviving work up to Metal Jacket if the enemy builds weapon power (red) otherwise, if the enemy is building is building crystal power (blue), work up to Aegis. Like this your enemies wil have a hard time killing you. After this, you finish your build with Shatterglass this will give you a huge crystal power boost.
If you see the enemy is building a shield like Aegis then go with Broken Myth so you can do more damage because of its shield pierce.
If you don't have a hard time suriving, i would suggest to first work up to Shatterglass or Broken Myth and then to Metal Jacket or Aegis
Don't forget to upgrade to Journey Boots

Tips & Tricks Top

  • You can use the combo Spitfire + Goop both ways. if an enemy is on fire and you you goop on the enemey, the puddle will burn. You can also use Goop first and then put it on fire with Spitfire.

  • If you are attacking minions in the lane, first use goop then put it on fire. Because the minions don't have much health, they can die when you use Spitfire. so if you use Goop afterwards, it may not be put on fire because the minion already died

  • If you are attacking an enemy hero, first put him on fire with Spitfire then use Goop This will ensure good hits.

  • Use Dragon's Breath to steal the Kraken. If the enemy teams is hitting the Kraken, and you're on your own, hide in the bushes and wait until the Kraken is almost dead. Then use Dragon's Breath. This does many hits on the Kraken and will give you a big chance of stealing him and turning the tide.

  • Use relfex block or Crucible just before you use Dragon's Breath. otherwise, there is a chance you will be stunned.

Ending Top

By using this build, I always have lots of kills and very few deaths. You should have a k/d around 7/1 with this build.
