Threat Hero Notes
1
Adagio Meh, he is not much as a laner. Can be easily poke out early game, mid and late with 2 eyes shut
1
Reim Easily dodge all of his skillshots then throw spitfire at him, not really a thread
2
  No Threat
3
Celeste A shorter version of Skaarf, can be easily poke out if stay outside her range. Watch out for Solar Storm tho
4
Petal Her munions can cause you problem, also her ult is really annoying, carefully play and you can kill her in time
4
Ringo Same as adagio at early game, but watch out for his mid and late game, you won't find him so much as a push up at that time
5
Krul If you got an atlas late game, meh, Krul will always fall before Skaarf. Not much of a challange if you know kitting, but watch out for his ult tho
5
Ozo Same as Krul, only a bit mobile. Do the same tactic with Krul and Ozo is out of bounce
6
Skaarf Stay focus and you can beat your mirror (dodge his skillshot + land your skillshot accuracy)
6
Kestrel WP Kestrel = Ringo. CP Kestrel = Be careful She can cloak herself afar then show up in an unexpected place. Keep our guard up, and always poke her out whenever you see her in every situation
7
SAW Bait him to use his B ability miss then spitfire+goop. Keep your distance with him, and do not come too close to him
8
Vox You will find yourself harder to land a spitfire on Vox, but when you did it, it's just another Ringo
9
Koshka Taka/2. Since she don't have the ability to cloak, if she fail to assasinate you, spitfire her #BeDisrecpectful
10
Taka Appear, dissapear, unpredictably where he is going. Ugh. Just want him to come here, show his face, so i can spitfire him

Added guide Top

- 1.18 new Hybrid Attack speed + Poking build for Skaarf

Know your abilities Top

A. Spitfire
Your main source of damage, max this ability as fast as possible to spam more frequently. Rely on your huge Spitfire range to bring down enemy from afar. Learn how t
B. Goop
Spitfire + Goop combo spells doom to every enemies that dares to step on it. Hit your enemy with your Spitfire first than follow up with Goop to maximise the burning goop's damage
C. Dragon's Breath
"Burn baby BUUUURRRNN". When your teammates are distracting your enemy team, one Dragon's Breath will turn the tide of the team fight to your team's favor, thus winning the ace. Use this ability wisely. I reccomanded using it when you are very sure to kill an enemy hero

Skaarf's best allies Top

SAW He is best if you want to go Jungle Skaarf. His high damage potential + your Spitfire damage gonna make a very good delete duo. Also his slow ability can keep your Burning Goop damage much longer than usual
Ringo Same with SAW, although he is only strong at late game, his A combine with your burning goop combo and the Hellfire Brew + Dragon's Breath can almost gurrantee to erase an enemy heroes in a teamfight
Krul Your frontline, reliable tank. He can bring down a toughest Ardan to 3/4 health and let your Spitfire finish him off.
Reim Same with Krul, and a bit more range, Reim can protect Skaarf from almost any situation thanks to his spammable A
Alpha Weak early game, mid game, if Alpha has Aftershock, get ready for a rain of ability damage pouring from Core Charge and Spitfire. Not much of a tank herself but what makes her a reliable frontline for Skaarf is mid team fight Termination Protocol. Combine with Dragon's Breath and the ace is yours
Catherine Her Merciless Pursuit can keep the enemy on a burning goop for eternity. She can keep Skaarf safe to carry the entire team to victory
Ardan His reliable Vanguard allow Skaarf to strenghten more Spitfire, thus increase his kda stats in a possitive way
Phinn He can increase the accurate of your Spitfire with his A and C, Polite Company also keep you longer sustain in the fight. Phinn can also increase the duration of the ennemy position into your B which deal increadible amount of damages.
If you watch Team Secret match vs TheTrueGentlemen this season. Phinn ultimate -> Skaarf B + A -> Phinn overdrived A stun into the goop on fire -> after few secs he use B to attract them again into the goop. This combo is such a deadly comp.

Best team comp with Skaarf Top

Alpha(Jungle)/ Catherine(Roam)/ Skaarf(Lane)
Krul(Jungle)/ Ardan(Roam)/ Skaarf(Lane
SAW(Lane)/ Ardan( Catherine)(Roam)/ Skaarf(Jungle)
Ringo(Lane)/ Phinn(Roam)/ Skaarf(Jungle)
Reim(Jungle)/ Catherine(Roam)/ Skaarf(Lane)

Item build order and reason Top

1. Why Eve of Harvest first?
Because we want more energy. Since Skaarf needs tons of energy to spam Spitfire, an Eve of Harvest is best for him at early game, also a little amount of health regen can make him stay in the fight longer in early game
2. Broken Myth over Shatterglass
At this forum: http://forums.vainglorygame.com/index.php?threads/83016/ , the OP had compared the damage between Broken Myth and Shatterglass Skaarf, and the result is Broken Myth deals more damage than Shatterglass. So the Eve of Harvest and Broken Myth are your 2 precious core items that you must build it in every situation
3. Frostburn as 3rd item
We need to slow fleeing enemies, also make kiting with Skaarf more easier, and Frostburn can do that job. With that incredible slow, Frostburn keeps save distance for Skaarf when battling against a melee enemy, and sometimes, i don't need defense, because with Frostburn, i can heal back up with my Eve of Harvest in time with the help of Broken Myth
4. Shatterglass
For more damage dealt. You want more regen, get Shatterglass. Shatterglass and Broken Myth together can take out 1/4 tankiest Krul's health with just a single Spitfire
