Introduction

Hello to everyone reading this, my first ever LoL champion guide. I don't have any experience with this so bear with me alright?

Skarner is my favorite champion to play or all the ones I currently own (42/84~) as of 9/28/11.
However I've found that none of the guides on here for Skarner are efficient for my hyper-aggressive playstyle. So I decided to make this one.


Guide Top

Runes

Why did I choose the Runes that are up on the cheat sheet?

Magic Pen Marks: Most Magic Pen w/out taking up Quints, (most of Skarner's damage comes from magic damage and magic damage bonuses)


HP/ Level and Flat HP Seals: Skarner NEEDS Survivability, it's one of his big flaws so getting these alongside the quints helps out alot (Lvl 1-3 turret dives anyone?)


Magic Resist Glyphs: Mages are annoying, from Annie to Malzahar, and Swain to "Magewick", you need some solid initial defense against any mages you come across. Lane Skarner will survive and comeback for a double kill.

Masteries

Standard AP Caster/ CDR Runes. Skarner needs mana and spammable abilities. so just do this and problem solved.

Items

Now this is the tricky part.
Start with ato off set Skarners mana costs easy as pie.

Then buildPeople ask me why I build an AS item after ranting about Skarner's ability spam. Simple his abilities compliment his natural AD, which is extremely high, so make him hit faster and by the time Ashe w/ 220 dam has hit you twice, you've hit her 4 time for a total of 500~

Proceed onward to buildfrom that oldNow you hit EVEN harder when spamming abilities.

Next up isThis is one of Skarner's must haves. AP for his abilities AND AS for the aforementioned
AS & AP > AD.

After that :Our pet scorpion needs to live through the toughest barrages so that he can get double and triple kills when ganks happen(and they will). Also the AP that come with it is nice :)

Most likely the last thing you'll get to build is :due to time constraints.

Again Spam abilities, get MOAR damage for your rapidfire attacks.

If you end up in a game where you a either g-g-g-godlike or it takes more than 50 min to finish build a:out of afor AD(ugh finally he adds some real AD) and AP + Spell Vamp
