Introduction

Hello, blablabla...Name 00000X blablabla.
I play support role, but sometimes i play some weird ap champions, like Tristana or Yi, I dont play ranked very often but whatever.
This is not the best role for skarner but his ratios are good for an AP champion.

Items

EARLY and CORE
Why Boots and pots?
Boots for a better laning, helps you last hit, dodge ss and gives you some regen.Buy Dorans against champions with great burst, like lb or annie.
RoA- for tankiness, as you have to start sometimes and you're melee.Try to finish before boots buying level 2 boots.
After RoA you can go for either Philo or Sheen, Philo if youre having a hard time, Sheen for more damage.
MID GAME
Rabbadon!!!!Become a burster.
LATE GAME
Just situational items.Go for that Lich for great damage, You can upgrade Philo into Shurelaya for better initiation, or abissal scepter for double ap compositions.Pure Tank Items are nice too, as you give decent damage as long as youre alive, Randuin against AD, or thornmail for pure ad, Banshee if their team has good initiation, or QSS against heavy CC.
If they have a lot of MR go for Void Staff, alot of life: Deathfire Grasp.

Skill Sequence

Max E for damage and sustain in lane, good harass good farming and heals back.
W makes you win trades and lets you escape ganks.
1 point in Q at4 just for the bonus slow( Remember to use your Q in minions before going for the champion, because q first wave does not add slow).

Summary

You win most trades, as you have your W and you E harasses a lot.Lvl 6 ask for ganks to your jungler, with your ult a kill will be no problem.

Mid Game:
Be always ready for dragon fights, always buy 1 or 2 wards when you're base.Ward river side, baron and dragon.

Late Game:
