Summoner Spells

Back to Top ▲

The only two choices, flash for initiations/getting away/chasing. Smite for obvious reasons.



Thoughts on ghost: Nop. Why? You cannot possibly be able to waltz through the entire enemy front line to reach the backline where your ult targets are. You don't need ghost with your W speed-up aswell as the new passive stun, flash enables chasing way better than ghost will, especially if fighting at areas where obstacles provide flash destinations.

Runes

Back to Top ▲

Attack speed for faster clears and it synergizes really well with your passive on Q (reduced cd when landing an attack), and therefor is the obvious choice for stickyness,damage and cc respectively. 


Armor to stay alive in the jungle.

Scaling magic resist to become beefier the longer the game goes on.

AS quints+marks after 4.10 because the attack speed is just way too valuable for clear times and dps.

Defense all the way. Masteries altered for newer patches to grab more damage reduction


You can also choose to go 9/21/0 if you prefer the extra damage over buff dur+summoner spell cd.

Q first for clear and dmg, 1 point in E for the slow, W for the MS.


After 4.10 i don't see the skill order changing much. After trying a couple of games, W seems to be the way to go 2nd. Also tried going 1-1 each level, which also works okay.

Items

Back to Top ▲
Start With
Core
Situational

It all comes down to choice. Does your team need damage? If so, get a Wit's End/Gauntlet.  Are you getting superfed? Get tanky items with Gauntlet+Wit's End/trinity. Do you need a supporty jungler? Get and upgrade Aegis, get Shurelia's.


You have to play to realize when to buy what, since Skarner has many build paths, and none of them will be optimal in 100% of your games.

Well i gave you full rating. It's because skarner is my main too, but after new patch i didnt know what to buy and wasn't sure of masteries choice. Iceborn Gauntlet - i didnt even look at this item beacuse of ap it is giving, i dont need ap on skarner that much. But the effects are just amazing - never ending slow and actualy bonus ad dmg :]. Thanks for showing your masteries, wasn't sure if reduce dmg from champions or tenacity and now i will try your way. Very good guide for skarner. But i think you should make more notes on items choice, not everyone knows skarner so well, u may just write how the effects stacks with skarners skills so people will see how amazing skarner can become when they buy this items. But anyway good job on this one. Good luck in season 3 :].

Hi! well I have to try it, i have only played once since the new upgrade, and im not very good at ganking.

My main problem with skarner is ganking. Well im awfull at ganking with avy champ. But I like skarner the most so i wanna learn how to gank, can you give me some advices about ganking pre lvl6 ?

Thanks !

Try to gank top lane the most since it's prolly the one that will be the least warded one. Your permaslow will be better in a longer lane (top>mid) aswell.

Generally, which would be better Frozen Heart or Iceborn Gauntlet?

Quite situational, but personally I prefer Iceborn Gauntlets. (Frozen Fist!)

Good guide but with the E spell i dont understand u!

The E is practically useless. It gives little damage, little heal and is just a mana dump. Your other abilites scale way better and are way more useful in every single situation.
