Introduction

This guide will teach newer players how to build skarner where hes tanky and still does some damage. Be careful this build is weak early and gets extremely powerful towards the late game. This is also my first guide so I hope you like it. Also as updates come out i will update this guide.

Build

This build allows for high attack speed for more q's and still keeping you a bit tanky. grab devourer first, then go into sheen. Once sheen is done grab lvl 1 boots. Then finish up trinity. Then frozen heart, into locket, finishing with ga. Note you have to clear a lot of jungle camps to make devourers very effective.


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

While jungeling you will want to focus the bigger monster on all camps except the krugs. The q damage is usually enough to wipe out the little ones if not 1 auto will do it. Make sure to use your w to take a lot less damage. Also if you want to clear all camps before first back do this, clear gromp with leash smite pop potion, clear blue buff, then wolves pop potion, then razorbeaks, then red smite, finish krugs and back.


Guide Top

Team Work/Fights

You want to jump on and focus squishy targets such as the adc and mid laner and keep jamming q and w e even, but it doesnt do to much i would save it for a slow if they try to run. Use your ult to engage if the other team is running to get a quick free kill or use it to pull the carries off your team, use it the best way you see it.

Skins

Battlecast or bust.
