Official Hero Spotlight:
I’ve added my Skaarf build! Not sure if it’s the most effective, but it works pretty well for me. I’ll have to experiment some with especially. Is everyone maxing A and C, or doing something wild with maxing A and B?
Personally I prefer maxing A & ult. His ult is still powerful enough to melt a team even though they removed the shield pierce.
That’s a good point - stacks might be easier to maintain now! I usually avoid it in my builds because most teamfights I’m a part of aren’t very coordinated, where I can sit on the edge of the fight for an extended period of time, or logical extensions of me bullying a laner. It’s usually me farming, then seeing something break out somewhere else on the map and skaarfing on over to poke poke poke and blaze up with the ult to burn up the stragglers. Or poke poke, oh crap we were over-extended, goop run run reflex boots run don’t kill me don’t kill me
I tried out the other day, and it was definitely easier to keep stacks through laning/harassing, but I still wasn’t getting much beyond 7, 8, 9 stacks in teamfights… I would have to crunch numbers to see, but I’m not sure it’s giving enough damage. Or I have to change my playstyle.
was quite nice though! The slow feels really good. It might be in the running to be a second or third item, depending on how my energy usage and damage taken are going.
Well - that’s 70-80-90 addition CP
But, a is a more simply way to have raw CP power.
