Introduction

~WARNING, THIS GUIDE IS STILL IN THE WORKS~

If you have any feedback, leave it in the comments, this is a fairly new design I'm fiddling with, and still haven't finished it entirely so bare with me.


Guide Top

Early jungle route.

Start by getting a smiteless blue, and start with Crystal Slash for a faster clear. After you grab blue, rush to red and use smite to kill it. If you can, gank top, it will most likely not net you a kill, but will give your top lane an advantage. After that, get wraiths and wolves. Then check to see if you can steal wraiths and head bot for a gank. After that you should back and buy.


Guide Top

Items.

I'm still working on this, but I've got the basics down, I was going with Tear of the Goddess for mana, but found I needed some health late game so I swapped it out with a Rod of Ages.
The only three items I think are a must on AP skarner are Nashor's Tooth, Rod of Ages, and lichbane.

If they are a really heavy AD team, swap out Rabadon's Deathcap for a Zhonya's Hourglass.

If you are getting bursted by a mage, swap out Spirit of the Spectral Wraith for Spirit Visage because it will give you increased CDR aswell as more healing from Fracture.


Guide Top

Ganking

When you come in to gank, you want to fight near minions, unlike other junglers because of Fracture. I've come in and ganked someone when there were two waves, and was healed nearly half my health from Fracture.

When you come in to gank, you want to position yourself behind the enemy by leading with Crystalline Exoskeleton, land a Crystal Slash and lead their flash/jump(depending on the champ), after that use Fracture and quickly use Impale. Drag them back while using Crystal Slash. If you find that the lane you gank for misses a skillshot when you drag them, hold them in place with Impale instead of dragging them.


Guide Top

Mid-Late game

This Skarner build is played a little like a melee assassin, because of Fracture and Crystalline Exoskeleton you can take a lot more abuse, but you're still not the teams tank. Your job is to try to position yourself to either catch someone out, or use Fracture and wait to grab their carry with Impale. At full build your Impale will deal nearly 1,000 damage after magic resist against their carry, along with Fracture and Crystal Slash you should be able to kill their carry in a single combo.
