Catch to Death.
Maybe i add some other Scores. But now i dnt have more. Maybe when i play him again.. btw, no, these arent the only scores, i playd him much few days Ago :)
(im sorry that the Pictures are in German, but i think most of you understand what they show u :) )
Hey Guys. This is my first Guide so pls dont be mad if my english fails much. :)
I just wanna share the best Skarner Build i ever see/play with. Its full ap, with a bit HP on Midlane. (work with every other AP, but with skarner its best ;))
I bet u think its 4 troll the other player. But Skarner AP PWNS!
His e always heals him, his w secure him from dmg, and his cd reduce so much bcuz of Autoattack.
So your tower is hard to destroy. Opponents tower is fast down, and jungle cant gank u that good.
First Start with Dorans Ring, U need the HP, bcuz u are squishee at start. Then u need the AP (no comment :)) and Manareg. Skarner needs alot Mana if u play him aggresive like i do :)
Then (Perfect if u could buy both at first call back :)) buy
Needlessly Large Rod and Ionian Boots.
-Rod u need later for Rabadons.
-Ionians CD is good 4 all your skills. With auto Attack of Nashoors in Lategame u will be amazing.
After this, buy Rod of Ages.
-It gives u the HP u need for stayn alive, the mana u need for all your Spells and the AP u need for kills :) Same with the next item:
-Rylais. +Rylais slows your opponents.. f*ckn good. they cant escape after Ulti ;)
Then i always buy Deathfire Grasp ( Can be sold later.. but i dnt playd a round that goes so long till now. I guess i would buy Zhonyas then..)
-gives u CD again. And the Passive *-* +80 AP!
Now, after all of that stuff, buy Rabadons. Upgrade your Needlessly Large Rod.
-Nothin to say. Much ap=Much DMG.
Your next item will be: Nashors Thooth.
-Good for Skarners Passive/Spells. Givin hughe CDreduction.
And then, if your Round took that much time, sell Deathfire Grasp and buy Item like Zhonya or Abyssal Cepter. (Like i said. never playd such a long game.)
Always skill Fracture and Impale. The other i would do like u think its good. ;) I always skill them different way ;) But i guess it depends on your Opponent and Jungler.
Flash for Ganks or Grabs with Ulti. Teleport for commin out of Base fast. Nothin to say. U can use other.. but i think this are the best. Bcuz u heal enough, Mana regen enough. And rest.. u dnt need.. My oppinion.
Pros / Cons
-Hughe DMG, early AND late game.
-Fills much HP up.
-Hard to gank.
-Dnt excist. Maybe need much Mana. And CAN be squishee. But it depends on Opponents.
Creeping / Jungling
At start. Always let your Minions deal DMG to other Minions, then kill them with Fracture.
If u buy a bit AP.. ~ after Needlessly Large Rod/Rod of Ages, u can onehit Waves with Fracture.
Take one opponent out with ulti, or wait till a Teamfight start and shoot with Fracutre from behind. Deals hughe DMG both ways/ALL ways. ;) Play the way u like most ;)
