Hey Everybody!!!

First of all:

Please please please don't be scared about my decisions concerning MASTERIES, RUNES and SUMMONER-SPELLS!

In my opinion, these have to fit to YOUR playstyle!!!

(everybody is different!)

Saying that, I only listed the combinations which i find more likely to be effective...
But if you have a different opinion, let me know! :D

Skarner

As Skarner entered the League... I was pretty disappointed!
Of course they didn't want him to be overpowered, but he was close to being useless...
I`m happy to say that the recent buffs really improved this champ and made him viable again! :D YAY!

Description

What you get here, are basically 3 builds:

- The first one is the one I like most (for playing solo top lane)

- The second one is a pretty good alternative to the first one

- The third one is TANKING FOR YOUR TEAM :D


Unfortunately Skarner doesn't work really good in the jungle for me... I tried it a couple of times; maybe it is me failing, maybe he is no good jungle champ - I'm not sure...
But that mainly is the reason for the missing jungle build! :D



As you can see I either use Regrowth Pendant or Doran's Shield as starting item. Just a matter of tankyness ;)

After that I usually wanna rush Trinity Force - The great benefit on Skarner is, that he has a very high basic movement speed, which makes it possible to wait with your lvl 2 boots until after the Trinity!

Then you should work on your tankyness again - I always try to buy damage items and tank items in turns... it's pretty effective! ;)


There are a few situational items that you can use if these items don't fit the game:

- Force of Nature
- Thornmail
- Frozen Heart
- Banshee's Veil
- Guinsoo's Rageblade


Well that's basically it! I don't want to describe every little detail... just play and get better with him! I hope this guide could give you some ideas!

The Dominion guide is pretty self explanatory... if you have questions - just ask! :D
