1. Introduction

Lets face it, the way that Riot made skarner turns him into an awful jungler. So maybe its time to ignore the champion spotlight and use this bug the way hes meant to play.

THIS BUILD IS INCOMPLETE! I'll be reviewing it and adding content as I get to play him more.

2. Solo top or bottom lane with a partner?

I have tried him in both situations and i can say that solo top is better for him but you'll have to look to the enemy team composition, u can do very nicely on a 1v1 top situation, but if the enemy puts two hard harassers on the lane u may think about switching lanes with someone.

3.- Skill Order

R ---> Q ---> W ---> E

This skill order can make laning harder, but if u are lvling your Q by the time you get your , they will have to flash to get away from you.

If you get sent to a lane with two hard harassers, leveling E will be your top priority because it will give you lane-staying capabilities that will be much needed.

4.- Why those items?

Well actually because with and combined with your Q and W, you will be a threat to any one u hit with a charged Q. With these items you dont need more damage.
If the enemy team is caster-heavy or CC-intense pick , if not go first for an then get Banshees.
After buying these items u are nearly unstoppable, in the games i have played i havent gone further than this, but i think that maybe a Yoummumu could be ****ing insane on this champion build.

5.- Game tips

This section will be much richer in the future as i will be including tips here to get the max out of skarner.

- If you ult is on cooldown, auto-attack things. Once im in mid game I manage to have my ult rdy for every teamfight thanks to this.

- Be alert, every enemy stragler can be turned into a free kill with your ult, that is the only way you should initiate.
