Build & summoners

As a tank you need to prioritize for the enemies carries and whoever is getting fed getting your negatron cloak or chain vest accordingly. Try and build so that you can hold onto your gold per 5 as long as you can.

The Will of the Ancients is extremely strong on skarner for the damage and spell vamp. With the Spell vamp plus his, on top of your shield, skarner gets a lot of sustain in fights. (Be sure to let your mages know if you intend on getting a Will of the Ancients)


I prefer/


allows you to escape or flash in for an ult
is useful for laning early and mobility mid and late game
is good when combined with Skarners ult
is viable for securing kills by usingto catch up and cast ignite
is NOT good on Skarner if you have problems with mana in lane conserve your mana better and Teleport is more useful for refreshing your mana , while still being very helpful later in the game

Lane

After playing Skarner I have not seen him succeed in the jungle. He works much better in a dual lane, an early point inwill allow you to harass early and use it to farm if needed.is useful for getting you gold per 5 items and returning to lane.

Teamfights

Initiating with Skarner is similar to Singed useand your Shurelya's to charge in and spamto perma-slow the enemy team,for the shield, andfor aoe Damage. Skarners ability to tank comes from his high aoe sustained damage over time. Use yourto suppress the enemy carry or the highest priority target, but only when your team is close enough to focus the target down.

As targets get low be sure to stick to them using yourandto pick them off, but don't ignore the larger group as your damage is aoe.

Items

Is useful if you need more Mr instead of sustain over a Will of the Ancients

Can prioritize over the Banshee's Veil if the enemy team Doesn't have as much hard CC

Prioritized over Merc Treads if the enemy team is auto-attack heavy

Wards are important no matter what role you are be sure to buy the. BUY THEM!!!
