Hi all, my nick is Spooch and i play on EUwest. This is my very first guide and first time here on MOBAFIRE. I really love al the guides here. I hope you don't judgme to harsh. ^_^
Centuries ago, there lived a race of creatures as ferocious as they were wise. The brackern were unusual beings blessed with the earth's primal magic, embodied in the form of crystals. Their kind knew of an arcane ritual to bind their life's essence to a crystal, communing with the magic embedded in it. With this power, the brackern thrived in the Odyn Valley, protecting both creatures and crystals alike. Despite attacks from those looking to claim the primal magic, it seemed that nothing could get past the brackern's defenses. Nothing, that is, until the devastation of a Rune War.
A vicious battle was fought near the Odyn Valley and the unleashed chaotic magic poisoned the crystals. The brackern began to grow sick and die, and no amount of defensive magic could reverse the effects. To avoid extinction, their only course was to hibernate underground until the wars stopped. The strongest, most intelligent brackern hibernated closer to the surface to awaken first and assess the world's condition for the return of their race. The recent mining operations and violent escalation in Kalamanda were enough to awaken the first of these vanguards. When Skarner burst to the surface, he lashed out in anger and confusion. Reason eventually won out over his anger when he realized that the agents of the League who found him were simply functionaries. Skarner was invited to the Institute of War to share the brackern's story. In return, the summoners told him about the history that his kind had slept through. Much had been done to curb the unchecked use of magic since the Rune Wars, but it was obvious that the world was not yet safe for his kind to reawaken. For now, however, there is a place where Skarner can use his power to change the world into one to which his kind could eventually return: the League of Legends.
''The humans have not yet learned to control their magic - what once was Kalamanda is now a crystal scar on the history of this world.'' Skarner
Last 2 items can be swapped for Blackcleaver and an Bloodthirster. Maybe even Guinsoo but didn't tryed that out yet.
Boots of swiftess or mobility for if you really want to GANK alot.
Guinsoo Rageblade - Just tried this item, it does work on Skarner.
Malady - Didn't tried on him yet.
Madres - Could work on him.
Since we're gonna use alot of basic attacks, we need armor penetration to the max ^.^
And 9x Armor + MR will definitly help us aswell.
Exhaust - With the mastery of exhaust you will hit harder.
Ignite - And the ignite just for more DPS. (And more AP if ignite is on CD ofcourse)
Ghost - Ghost is very great ofcourse, especially if you also get flash. You can you flash into teamfight, grab someone with ulti, ghost + W on and run to your team with the victicm.
Flash - Very handy for escaping and chasing over walls etc.
Farming mid & late game is easy, cause all spamming Q so fast will get you alot of minion kills.
Also whenever you have the chance, try to jungle a bit for more gold (unless you have an jungler).
You should gank alot with Skarner. I always start off with putting W on then E on enemy for lifesteal ofcourse.
After that spam your Q and right mouse button.
If they get away > R to pull them back and continue with W > E > Q
Easy as that ^_^
