The Scorpion King is my *****.

Hey guys, this is my first time making a build, so I would love your honest feedback! Skarner is quite the new champion, and I honestly LOVE to play him. There's SO many uses for him and this is the build I play most often. (posting pics soon)

This build is all about dropping those cooldowns with some nice attack speed and pretty decent damage. Basically, being a predator and staying on top of them 24/7. There are a few items I may try switching into the build (mostly Madreds Razor for fighting tanks off... SO ANNOYING).

I feel like most of the damage Skarner really does is mental. Honestly. When someone is being pounced on like that, usually their first instinct is to panic and run, which causes them to die because Skarner is one ANNOYING son of a *****.

Runes

The reason I chose the runes that I did was to basically boost what he already has, but boost it early and really give him that early game feed. (More details to come)

Masteries

I went 21 - 6 - 3 for obvious reasons. I dipped a bit into the other trees to really improve his survivability. He doesn't need much more in the offensive tree anyways.

Items

Regrowth Pendant: It's in the recommended build, but its actually really helpful for staying in lane. Just back off a bit when they poke and you could heal right back up to full in no time while still getting yourself some gold and xp.

Boots of Speed: You want to blue pill back and get these ASAP. Usually people wait a bit longer to get boots and this, along with your W, could really keep you on top of them and maybe even get you a first blood.

Cloth Armor: Just part of the Ninja Tabi really.. I go straight from boots to the tabi.

Ninja Tabi: Great early game armor and the dodge chance makes me happy.
(NOTE: IF THERE ARE ALOT OF CC'ERS OR ALOT OF AP CHARACTERS, PLEASE DONT GET THESE. GET MERCURY'S TREADS[/b]

Sapphire Crystal: That extra mana ends up being really helpful. All this cooldown spam is really going to drain you.

Amplifying Tome: Stronger shield, Better Heals, Stronger Ult, Recipe Item. Get this. duh.

Sheen: "WINNING!" Hah. But no really, this item causes you to hit a TON of extra damage after you use your shield or your crystal slash. Which happens ALOT. Great item for the DPS. Get it as fast as you can.

Dagger: This is where we start adding to the attack speed, This is where cooldowns start to drop. THIS is where you really get some early game kills.
