Introduction

Hello, and welcome to my very first guide on Mobafire.

I've been developing many guides for professional players on Solomid's homepage. Guides like -"Fear my stinger" (Another Skarner build)
"StingerDinger, your guide to understanding Heimerdinger"
"Stinger-Singah, your guide to understanding Lee Sin"
Those guides has taken up lots of my time, and I hope you will look positive upon them.

Pros/Cons

Pros:
- Very strong ganks all throughout the game.
- Maximal scaling with passive cause of the attackspeed Stinger gives.
- Almost no CD's, gapclosing and synergi with the laners.

Cons:
- No cons about the Stinger, very low cost of such a strong item!

Summoner spells, runes and masteries

Summoner spells:

For summoner spells I believe that Cleanse + Flash is the optimal choice for Stinger Skarner. Imagine if you are ganking mid, the opponent brand lands his stuncombo, so that your Stingers won't reach him. That would be terrible for the Stingers, not to be able to show of their great power. Flash is following up Cleanse, because if you arent in range, with no boots, you need to catch up to sting them!

Runes:

Even though Skarner doesn't use energy, I still think that energy Glyphs are the perfect choice. It takes alot of energy to run without boots and attack with the Stingers. Therefore he needs some more energy.

For Marks and Quints, attack speed is a great synergi between Skarners passive and the stingers attackspeed.

For seal runes, the dodge runes are great for skarner. Cleanse has a rather long CD, so you'd want to be able to dodge brands stuncombo with your runes since you aren't skilled enough to dodge him yourself.

Masteries:

Not much to say here. 30 offensive points to maximize the Stingers effect.

Items

Items:

Even though its only possible to have 9 items in your inventory slots in League of Legends, I still believe 10 Stingers are the optimal choice. There really isnt need for boots on skarner when you can have that much better stats like Stingers can give you.
