Introduction

Skarner is the best Bug in the league.

Summary

My Skarner Guide isn't going to be that In-depth because I frankly don't have the time. Overall It will Help you through early game and your overall role, but nothing helps more then experience. This guide isn't a "THIS IS HOW YOU PLAY HIM EVERYTHING ELSE SUCKS" instead it will need Improvement, and will change overtime.

Creeping / Jungling

Your first clear should always start with a leash from bot, on krugs or gromp smiting it. If you started Krugs you should then go do raptors killing the little ones first, then to red which you should smite, then you should go take blue. Starting Gromp, you should smite gromp then take blue, wolves, and red. Smite Red always. After your first clear Back or gank top or mid.

Team Work

Try to use your ult to chase or bring the squishy out of the back. Once you get on a squishy carry you should be able to either burn a escape or kill them. Overall it is all just depends on the situation.

Unique Skills

Skarners ult is hard to get used to. The timing is odd and you need to get to know how far you can get with it. At the end of the ult if pulling them Under or out of tower, turn around because they will be farther back and you will be in front of them for damage, slow and a stun.
