Introduction

Hello guys , this is my first Mobafire build. Also i wanted it to be some different from others. I will show you the AP Skarner at mid lane. It may look interesting but believe me its awesome. I will explain why did i chose AP Skarner instead of AD one.

Masteries

Masteries are classical for mages. But i gave 4 points at the Swiftness because you must be as fast as you can with Skarner.

Items

First of all , always start with a Doran's Ring. Because you wont be able to farm that easy , you have to use your spells. Doran's will give you a little Mana Regen. But if you have a Karthus , Cassiopeia , Brand etc. you must start with boots. Because you must escape their skillshots or you will get raped in early.

Remember , Lich Bane is your core item. You will always be pressing Q while attacking. And this will activate the Lich Bane every 2 seconds. So useful for AP Skarner. Also Rylai is a beast item for Skarner. Try to build this 2 items fast.

Summoner Spells

Flash is the best summoner spell for Skarner. You will always want to Flash + Ult everytime. And in teamfights , flash will help you out to reach the carries and ult them to your team.

Also "Ghost" maybe a quite useful spell for Skarner. With your W and Ghost , you can ult anyone whereever you want to.

Teamwork & Skills

*At teamfights always take an eye to carries. At the right time you gotta ult one of them to a easy kill.
*Go between attacks everytime , this is not a skill-spammer champion. With a Lich Bane , if you go normal attacks between your spells , that will be really helpful.
*At early farming at mid. If youre taking harass from enemy , use your E spell to mage creeps and use a Q to get them all and some heal value.
*Flash + Ult will be your combination most times. (Practice it)
*Try to using your Ultimate with spell cast system (Shift + R)
*If there is an enemy behind his creeps , Use one Q to creeps , then with W reach the enemy and use one more Q to slow him.
