Keep in mind these are just general recommendations, you will need to alter your rune and stat builds based on what content you want to use this monster for and what team you are using him with.
If you’re looking for detailed rune and stat builds you should take a look at SWMaster’s Rune Farming Guide – I have been a member of their site since I was new to Summoners War and would highly recommend it to all players.
•The Wind Giant Warrior, Skogul is a huge damage dealer that doesn't need CR or CD.
•His 2rd skill does huge fixed damage. This means defense doesn't really matter.
•His 1st skill does ATK bar strip.
•His passive allows him to reduce cool downs if he's hit while the stone is in the air.
•His Leader skill is great for keeping your team alive.
•He is amazing for R5 as a tank and damage dealer.
•Skogul needs over the top HP to be truly effective.
•The giant stone won't drop if he is stunned or sleeping.
•Monsters that can ATK bar strip, stun, or sleep are his worst nightmares.
GB12 (0/10): Skogul is not good in Giant's B12 because 66.6% of his rock damage is absorbed by the two towers instead of the boss. There are tons of better F2P options so don't use him here.
DB12 (0/10): Skogul is not good in Dragon's B12 because 66.6% of his rock damage is absorbed by the two towers instead of the boss. He also has element disadvantage, there are tons of better F2P options so don't use him here.
NB12 (0/10): Skogul is not good in Nerco B12 because he has no Multi-hits to break through the boss' shield or important buffs/debuffs.
ToA (0/10): ToA monsters have tons of HP so Skoguls damage will not do much, he also doesn't provide any type of important crowd control.
Rift of Worlds (7/10): While Skogul is pretty bad in all the Rift Beasts he is a great frontline tank that doubles as a damage dealer. His high HP combined with his passive that increases his Def he can easily tank the frontline especially if you build him on Vampire runes. His skill one also provides ATB push back and his skill two does a good amount of damage to the boss.
Dimensional Hole (7/10): Skogul is being used in a few good teams for KZ5 and EL5 (The Rune Dungeons).
Labyrinth (7/10): Skogul is a great option for certain Labyrinth stages.
Guild Wars (10/10): Guild Wars and Guild Siege is really where Skogul shines. He's currently the absolute best 4-star tower defense monster and insanely strong for regular Guild Wars defense as well. Skogul is also a beast on offense.
RTA (4/10): Skogul is not a great pick in RTA, his HP scaling gets nerfed after a few turns when HP gets reduced and ATK gets increased. The RTA meta also has a lot of units that can easily control Skogul to stop him from landing his Atlas Stone.
