Final Build 2 (Doing Really Well)
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.
Hey whats up guys Im a LAN player, currently on silver 1, yeah probably you just noticied Im silver 1 and get out of here but give me an opportunity to be the first one who make the first guide for my favorite champ skarner.
An Offtank Guide.
Dont worry I already noticied that on patch 4.21 they would nerf the skrimisher sable and the devourer enchantment dont worry, I would update my build as soon as I test all the jungle items on skarner.Because also I heard that the counterjungling item would be buffed so probably it could be the new best item for skarner, as I said I´ll test all the jungle items and make the build with the most useful for skarner.
The reason why I made those masteries to defensive its because as you can see the new jungle hits really hard, so thats why.
Well talking about jungling, for me I normally wait till level 6 to have the same KP(kill potential) as a Warwick gank with the ultimate, but if you want to gank earlier for any reason, you should wait till level 4 to have your 3 abilities and the q upgraded to lvl 2.
Now talking about the counter-jungle, well as skarner you got a nice damage in early and mid game, so if you know that you can 1v1 to the enemy jungle-Go for him! , just ask your teammates to push or be attentive to any movement the lanes have, because the normal reaction are the same for high-elo and low-elo, that if they can help receiving a kill or an assist they inmediately go, well thats what I almost see on every cases, so becareful because if you dont have a good early or mid game(if you die), forget about your damage on late game, I personally dont like counter.jungling, for me thats to tryhard and also to risky, but you can definetely try it.
Always Keep In Mind
Remember to, buy first the items you need on this build, but if you folllow the build as its on there believe me, it would work(sorry about my bad english, I usually speak spanish but most of mobafire community speaks english)
Pros / Cons
-You really got a nice hybrid damage.
-You are an acceptable tank.(Imagine you as a trundle, but with hybrid damage, with this I mean that with just two tank items you become a nice tank)
-You can destroy anyone who doesnt got more than 1 or 2 tank items.
-You got all you need.
-If you dont have a top or support tanky, this build probably would need to be modified to get a tank on the team, "you".
-With this build you are not the invencible tank.
-Well a trouble I found out is that you need to start the teamfights with your ultimate and as your not so tank probably you can get killed while you´re doing it.
If you follow up one of the 2 build I can assure you would get nice results, probably this is to much talk to mi division(silver 1) but I have NEVER had a bad score following up this build, since s3, also thank you for giving an oppotunity to my build.
