Threat Hero Notes
1
Petal A tricky ult, but a weak fighter.
1
Skaarf Item lead wins. Farm good, win. Farm bad, lose.
2
Adagio If fighting in the lane, you should be able to deal more damage than him. Reflex block ult.
2
Glaive Easy to set ablaze with [[Spitfire]], so all you have to worry about is getting knocked around.
3
Blackfeather LANE: Easy, just stay out of range of [[On Point]].
3
Joule LANE: Easy, stay out of range of [[Thunder Strike]].
3
SAW Punish him if he tries to bully you out of lane. SAW isn't that good...
3
Vox Not as good as you early. Vox late game is great, but so are you.
4
Ardan Ardan's vanguards are an annoyance to anyone, Skaarf is no exception.
4
Celeste Just don't be an idiot and walk near a star.
4
Ringo Meh, not too bad. Play cautiously just in case.
5
Fortress If both of your allies die in a teamfight, you wont get away. Just stay and fight, you're gonna die anyways.
5
Rona Her ganks aren't as bad as the guys higher up.
6
Krul Don't let him get close! Easy to build stacks on, doesn't move much.
7
Catherine If you get stunned, you get targeted. If you get silenced, you can't target. :/
7
Skye Ouch. Forward Barrage is killer.
8
Blackfeather JUNGLE: Get those scout traps for the bushes! He melts late game.
9
Joule JUNGLE: [[Rocket Leap]] is the bane of all laners, but since [[Skaarf]] doesn't have an escape, he is especially vulnerable.
9
Phinn NOOO! NOT THE ANCHOR!!
10
Kestrel This guide was made in v1.12, so Kestrel is still broken. Avoid!!
10
Koshka You are a sitting duck in the lane, lacking an escape. Scout traps are a must!
10
Taka You are a sitting duck in the lane, lacking an escape. Scout traps are a must!

Intro Top

Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to read my guide. Skaarf was my favorite laner before Kestral, and in my opinion, this world-domination seeking dragon (Check out the hero splotlight!) deserves a shoutout on this site.

Check out my Ardan/Phinn Wombo Combo Guide if you have a guild to play with!

General Strategy Top

This build gives Skaarf insane AoE lifesteal late game with overdrived Goop and Dragon's Breath abilities. The reason for Spitfire being taken initially, but not overdrived, is because early on, your build isn't complete yet, so you need the ranged damage more than AoE in most cases. However, the damage output is better with Goop and Dragon's Breath. Hopefully switching abilities won't be too bad mid game, when most other heroes have an overdrive already. Late game, however, overdrived Goop is an insane benefit.

As for strategies to play with this, I recommend building Broken Myth stacks by kiting enemies and/or hit, run, repeat. Targeting tank may be necessary, if that is the only player you can safely build stacks on. Once you have 6, unleash Dragon's Breath to prevent enemy movement away and to BURN EVERYTHING :)

Other Teammates Top

Here is a list of which characters DO synergize with Skaarf, and which DON'T. Those not listed are average synergy. Feel free to discuss who you think would go well with Skaarf in the comments!

DO
Ardan - Gauntlet is awesome to make sure the enemies take full effect of Dragon's Breath.
Krul - He usually gets targeted in teamfights, so you will be free to build stacks on the Broken Myth.


DON'T
Koshka - She makes the enemies want to get Aegis. Also, double CP is generally bad. Go for a WP jungle.
Phinn - He tends to bring fights a little too close too you.
