New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

I go 21-9 for skarner because I like the damage it offers...But if you want to tank go 0-21-9 for the defense and 9 in utility for buff duration.

Max Q for the most damage possible. W is good for the speed boost + shield so max that second.  Only put one point into E for the CC and max it last. Of course put points into your ult whenever you can.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard spawn buy.
    Pick one - Warrior is preferred but if you need tank stats for your comp go Cinderhulk.

Core Items

    Get Sheen for Triforce and fit in boots somewhere.
    Get Triforce second and then tabis. If the enemy team is really magic heavy trade for mercs.
    Get deads mans then get spectres cowl to build into visage. Again, alter your build path if the enemy team is magic heavy.
    Example full build. If you want to you can go Iceborn instead of Triforce for your second item (not including boots).

Situational Items

    If you can trust your team to do damage get this. Also if you are the only tank you could get ice born.
    If the enemy team is all AD
    If you want to buy cleaver instead of triforce.

Skarner is still complete dogsh*t so don't play him.

Shyvana

Hard

Shy does a lot of damage even if she goes full tank and she is a monster late game. Try to shut her down and predict her movements.

VS

Skarner

Medium

If you are playing blind pick.....Why would you be playing blind pick again?

VS

Teemo

Hard

Teemo is the ultimate jungler he wins against everybody GG

VS

Udyr

Medium

The godyr has a stun every 2 ******* seconds....but that doesn't matter skarner is still the best champ and can beat him of course...

VS

Vi

Medium

I think this matchup can go either way...both have pretty good ganks but 1 vs 1 wise vi has more burst but skarner can offer tons of damage (see what I did there...no...PHREAK) through long lasting fights.

VS

Volibear

Medium

VS

Warwick

Easy

Warwick is the best champion NA..no one can beat him...and all those people thinking vi is better in every single way sssshhhh.   


No really Warwick is the worst champion. He sucks.Vi IS better in every single way. By the times warwick gets strong the game will have already ended. 

VS

Wukong

Medium

Wukong is easy to go against... attack him when he finishes his combo. 

VS

Xin Zhao

Medium

In lower elos (Bronze/Silver/Gold) Xin zhao should be much of a problem for you. 

VS

Zac

Medium

Zac can get to the point where u can't kill him ( cuz hes super tanky)...so just ingore him...if you see him just walk right past him cuz he does no dmg.

Info! Back to Top

Hello, my name is MTZero (formerly, now it's open mid lol)and I am a Plat 5 (atm) League player. This is my guide to Skarner. Remember all guides won't give Freelo...there is some sort of skill involved that you need in order to be successful.

Tips
-Try to gank a bit in the early levels but spend more time farming
-Farm a lot in till you get lvl 6. 
-Use W to get into range of enemy and then E and then QQ till the enemy dies
-Try to counter jungle the enemy if you know their location
-Flash ult to start fights/ catch people out of position.  
-Skarner is the best champ!

( I couldn't fit all of my match histories and I was only able to show the first five which kind of sucks...)

If you have any questions or anything you may disagree with PLEASE TELL ME. I would greatly appreciate your feedback. 

MATCH HISTORY FROM  na.op.gg

This is a VERY good site that shows you your match history and your REAL MMR. I would have like to post more of my matches but this is all that could be shown at one time...I would have had to scroll down which would not work too well for a screen shot. h;asjhfd;jsfd.png
