Introduction

Hey, this would be my first mobafire guide, and mobafire has helped my quite a bit through my 500 sum odd games ive played (if you wanna find me my username is Berlox on the american server) I hope this will help you. I came across this build while playing a game as Skarner where we didnt really have a tank, so throught the levels i decided to fill this role. I started with another ranked solo top skarner guide on here but adapted it after getting the trinity force. Endgame i could solo just about anyone, no one could put a remarkable dent into me, and I hit 500s every time my sheen was up and it was just fun. . .

Items

I havent really experienced to much with this build but:

    i start with a regrowth pendant and a health pot for sustainability then i move to philosophers stone
    then boots
    sheen ( which i always recommend you have)
    finish off boots into mercury treads
    finish a trinity force
    build a frozen mallet
    then finish off with an atma's impaler
    sell the Philosophers stone for a Force of nature, and Warmogs armor
Core build:
    Boots(Berserkers Greaves or Mercury Treads or Ninja Tabai (ill talk about that in a second))
    Trinity force
    Frozen mallet/Rylais Crystal Scepter
Boots, which to get and what circumstances does it cover:
    Berserkers Greaves: are only the best choice if the other team is badly built has no threatening CC or AD
    Mercury Treads: Are the best choice if the other team has lots of CC or threatening AP champions
    Ninja Tabai : are best if there is a lot of AD and little AP it gives you that extra armor ad dodge chance
Alternative items:
    Heavy AD:
    Thornmail: The armor helps alot and it gives that great passive of damage return
    Sunfire Cape: Nice armor and passive AoE
    Guardians Angel: will really help best if theres a high burst champion like Leblanc and very high AD to go with it this would not be my first recamendation

Heavy AP:
    Banshees Veil: good Magic resist and the passive spell blocker this item should be sell explanatory
    Guardians Angel: will really help best if theres a high burst champion like Leblanc and very high AD to go with it this would not be my first recamendation
