Skaarf galore! Top

Skaarf ala 1.7 is one of the top choices for both lane and jungle carry. She has exceptional CC with Goop and Spitfire, and a great situational slow and speed boost in Dragon's Breath. In this guide, you will learn the ins and outs of Skaarf, the Quintessential Mage.

Abilities Top

Spitfire is your best weapon, much like Celeste's Heliogenesis. Use it to poke and harass enemies, but be extremely cautious when against a Ringo.

Goop is a great utility ability, as it can be used for big bursts of damage, or for slowing enemies to help an ally flee, or to help chase.

Dragon's Breath is a very situational ability. Use it only to slow weak, fleeing enemies.

Items Top

Provides you with most of your ability damage.

When bought after Shatterglass, it greatly amplifies your damage.

Your best friend. Provides protection from deadly stuns, and gives a great deal of HP.

Not much to say here.

With the damage from Shatterglass and Broken Myth, this will greatly increase your sustain, as well as provide some energy regeneration.

More items to come.

Strategies Top

-When you miss a Spitfire in lane, immediately place your Goop under your enemy to prevent them from harassing you while it's on cooldown

-Never use Dragon's Breath in the middle of a teamfight, as it will provide almost no damage

-To make last hitting easier, try moving closer to the enemy minions. However, don't do this if your lane enemy is present, as he will take advantage and harass you

-Never engage a teamfight. You are naturally squishy and will die very easily
