The way I level my skills is personal preference.
Maxing Crystal Slash maximizes your jungle speed. This is essential.
What you chose to max next will change the game.
Maxing Crystalline Exoskeleton improves jungle speed and ganking powers, while maxing Fracture next improves survivability.
As with all champions leveling your ultimate whenever possible is highly recommended.Combos
Typically a gank will proceed like this (in terms of what you do)

Skill Range Demonstration

Crystal Slash Fracture
Impale

Summoner Spells

I take Flash to re-position myself if need be, and Smite as I play Skarner as a jungler.

Decent Choices


-Can make decent escapes with such a massive slow, also great addition to fighting with all the damage reduction.
-Works great with your ultimate and getting around the map faster
-Aggressive players who prefer to fight and not run.

Choices That Should Be Thought Over


-Removes debuffs
-Great for early to mid game to add to survivability in fights
-Improves damage and lets cooldowns refresh faster
-Get to anywhere on the map at any time, as long as there is a target

Non-viable Choices


-Would divert your attention to other places, you should put full attention to the jungle and the enemy jungle
-Need mana? Take blue buff!
-Not going to be in lane long enough for the full use of the spell
-uhhhhh.....what?

  • -Have greater mobility
  • -Lifesteal and spellvamp to help survive team fights more easily, also has a slow for an easier time chasing
  • -A lot of physical damage? Little crowd control effects?
  • -Free cleanse!
