I chosed for my Support Jungle Skarner Attack Speed Runes, Armor Runes, Magic Resist Runes a Swiftness Quintessence and two Attack Speed Quintessences.
You need Attack Speed for Quick jungle and it is good for team fights.
The Armor Runes for less dmg in the Jungle etc, Mgc Resist for less mgc dmg and and a greater chance of survival while you try to gank.
You need the Swiftness Quintessence to have better and quick ganks and to slow the enemye qith your Crystal Slash.

I chosed the masterys on Utility, because i try to let the kills for my mates and by Greed and Wealth you get more Gold;), also through Summoner's Resolve with Smite
You have also more movement speed and a good CD - reduction.

You start with and 4 Health Potion.
After your first route you go back after a gank and buy Madred's Bloodrazor.
Jungle a little bit and gank so often you can.
Now you should have enough money for Wriggle's Lantern and maybe Berserker's Greaves too.
Nashor's Toothwill give you nice Attack Speed and CD- reduction, AP and Mana generation.
By Sunfire Cape you get some armor and passiv Dmg to nearby enemys (range:400) and 450 health.
Force of Natur will give you More Movementspeed Mresist and Healt regen.
The Guinsoo's Rageblade will give you nice stacks (up to 8 times) and also some DMG.
After you have these item you sell your Wriggle's Lantern and you buy the Hextech Gunblade.
It will give you Dmg, AP, Lifesteal and Spellvamp :)

Summoner Spells

Why should I take Ghost?
It is a very important Summoner Spell for Skarner.

It helps you by:

Noooow how do I start in the Jungle??
Ask a mate to give you a pull, so you have more health after your Blue Buff and so more chance to survive a gank. Smite the Blue Buff when he reachs 450 health.
After you've killed the Blue Buff activate a Health Potion and start to kill the Wolves then the Witches and the Golems .Attack the big one first and smite him.Kill the Red Buff and to another Camp and try to find the lane, where it is easiest to gank and to get a kill.

In the Mid game you should have Nashor's Tooth and you will see how quick you can kill a camp after a camp:)
You can buy Orakle's Elixir too find and destroy wards.-> better ganks and some gold:)
Also try to gank how often you can and hold a lane if a mate go back.

If you gank and they are not so far away from the tower...
use the thorn, which the developer from skarner gives him :D
And let the tower be a good friend;)


If the opposing team have Olaf wait if he used Ragnarok or just attack him with Crystal Slash, Fracture and basics attacks, if he has Ragnarok ready.
Otherwise when you put Impale on olaf he will use Ragnarok and he can run away.
Olaf have much Life, try to gank with mid together;)

Skarner should have the Blue Buff all the time for more CoolDown, its important too:)

Team Work

So my last Point is the Team Work.
When the situation come, try to stay directly behind the tank and use ur Ulti to pull some Enemys (Carrys) to your team.
And oh year,if you all do cuddle...just press Q all the timeg ;)
When you gank and the enemys could escape, lose no opportunity and kill them.
Otherwise feed your team;)
