Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
purple is a manley color
eh somone already took the crystal meth joke... anyways this is a laning build it seems to work for me i pwn with this build it's good for some survivability and dmg. dont worry you still do a ton of dmg. i like skarner cause hes really fun and i used to love scorpions as a kid i always wanted one as a pet. and hes actually pretty good if you play him right.
i dont feel that runes are all that important thats why i didnt fill that part out. i would just suggest AD AP a little health and mana thats pretty much it.
this buy order is setup to help you survive fairly well and make you pretty tank and still put out a lot of dmg. this build doesnt have rabadon's death cap or infinity edge cause i needed room to help his mana cause skarner sucks mana like a fat kid in front of cheese burgers. also he needs a little more survivability cause your gonna die fast if you dont squeeze in some health. the sunfire cape greatly helps his aoe dmg so it's like adding to his crystal slash. and the slow of hextech gunblade and frozen mallet help alot when trying to get close to use crystal slash cause yer crystal slash is gonna slow them even more and if you cant get close to do that then they get away. remember to sell doran's ring b4 you get your last item.
i chose exhaust and flash cause it helps to flash to your target while they are under the turret, then ulti, then pull them under, then exhaust aaaaaaand... theyer dead.
the reason i like to upgrade fracture so much is 1. the heal helps you stay in the lane longer 2. those ranged guys can be annoying and you certainly want to keep your health squared with theirs by shooting em when they run to you to shoot you. the shield is really only good for the speed buff and attack speed buff. but the extra shieldness helps too. crystal slash does a fair amount of dmg and trying to use crystal slash while you have the buff asap will help you keep up with your opponents easily.
Pros / Cons
he's cool looking
you can pull people under your turret
you can pull people into your group to be ganked
you can pull fiddlestick away from your allies when he ultis and save your whole team from certain death and become a grand hero *gasp*
his voice sounds like deathwing which is awsome
have you done his slash laugh?? he sounds like an evil villan of evilness awsomeness laugh of epicness.
oh and i've noticed it's quite easy to tower dive people and kill them and get away with it.
his fracture can be a little hard to aim
some crack addicts might try to smoke him
his long range abilities... are really short range...
well i picked these masteries because the dodge speed buff is helpful for catching ppl. uumm... the extra ability power helps alot. and extra survivability will stop you from feeding, because scorpion meat is prolly really tastey. the magic pen helps cause believe it or not... he does a lot of spell dmg
