Skarner and history

Centuries ago, there lived a race of creatures as ferocious as they were wise. The brackern were unusual beings blessed with the earth's primal magic, embodied in the form of crystals. Their kind knew of an arcane ritual to bind their life's essence to a crystal, communing with the magic embedded in it. With this power, the brackern thrived in the Odyn Valley, protecting both creatures and crystals alike. Despite attacks from those looking to claim the primal magic, it seemed that nothing could get past the brackern's defenses. Nothing, that is, until the devastation of a Rune War.

A vicious battle was fought near the Odyn Valley and the unleashed chaotic magic poisoned the crystals. The brackern began to grow sick and die, and no amount of defensive magic could reverse the effects. To avoid extinction, their only course was to hibernate underground until the wars stopped. The strongest, most intelligent brackern hibernated closer to the surface to awaken first and assess the world's condition for the return of their race. The recent mining operations and violent escalation in Kalamanda were enough to awaken the first of these vanguards. When Skarner burst to the surface, he lashed out in anger and confusion. Reason eventually won out over his anger when he realized that the agents of the League who found him were simply functionaries. Skarner was invited to the Institute of War to share the brackern's story. In return, the summoners told him about the history that his kind had slept through. Much had been done to curb the unchecked use of magic since the Rune Wars, but it was obvious that the world was not yet safe for his kind to reawaken. For now, however, there is a place where Skarner can use his power to change the world into one to which his kind could eventually return: the League of Legends.

''The humans have not yet learned to control their magic - what once was Kalamanda is now a crystal scar on the history of this world.'' � Skarner

- Very good Chase abilities

- squishy if played this way
- CCed easily

OP passive. The more attack speed, the more effective!
Very low CD. Together with the passive, CDR and additional attack speed it's the ultimate spam ability.
An ability which absorbs damage, boosts movement speed and attack speed....
Skarner's only ranged spell. Hit as many minions as you can to maximize the heal when using E-Q-Combo.
Very nice ultimate. Makes an enemy unable to do anything for 1,5 seconds and lets you pull him around. Try to get the enemy team's carry with it or someone who is channeling an ultimate to abort it (like Karthus).

ATTENTION: You can't use Flash while Impale is activated.

i try and the ult stop so if u thing that is a bad idea......

I put as mastery 9/0/21 because I'm not going to focus on putting as Jungle skarn and proven because the jungle and are not as good as Udyr, Amumu, WW Rammus or you think you can with passive Jungler but need a lot of exp for that but I put it on the other side to it as mid or top and bot for a lane as it has many abilities to tap a fast enemy in battle 1 vs 1 with the help of a fellow

Guide Top


I put the runes are more or less to help with the mana reg and also a lot of armor and magic pent pent so that they can cause great damage to the enemy with all their abilities as skarn normal hurts more magical damage

Guide Top


many people think or may think that using the flash ultimated skarn and could draw the enemy much farther than it does by chance that in using the Ultimate Ultimate more flash automatically cancels skarn

Another might be to ghost and intentato auque not yet that could follow in doubt unless your team is winning and has secure victory try to see if you can (if you try it let me know if it works thanks for your cooperation)

I put ignited so you can kill the enemy if he is a streak of life to have a guaranteed kill also can use it in this order W + Q + E + R + ignited

Guide Top


if they are enemies Karthus, TARIC, sona, WW has ultimated annoying then I say they sell and buy RYLA banshees crystal center `s vail to deny those annoying ultimated

As you can see items I put a hybrid to have a good balance of power with skarn

the first item that will give them magic power put to a combat using Q and applied power can give Secundary damage bonus with more power and to have the enemy in your clutches,after I put the boots to more movement and to help them with W and his second ability gives them more speed and attack speed so they can make a big villages or simply flee if necessary.

Hexter is the gun so they can put more magic damage and to steal some life from the enemy,trinity item in force in any order to buy the 3 item needed to create that always depends on whether you need more life or magic dmg or attack speed. (they get to offer physical damage, magic damage and attack speed to balance all of his abilities) also to cause the enemy damage bonus at all times.

In the boot did not get the berserker and greaves that alone has a high level attack speed but if you want to buy, buy but I would put the boots for more magic pent to the enemy to take into account the magic attack bonus.

madred's razor to cause more damage and neutral domains and to choose monster buffs and to help push, and other things and them madred's bloodrazor to increase damage, attack speed and damage to neutral monsters

nashor's tooth they get to increase the speed of attack c / d for all abilities and mana reg

Rylai's crystal center will put them to increase their HP, their magic and power to their enemies slower and if necessary when using your Ultimate enemy is going to make you harder to escape

and updated some items, put them in it `s Rageblade Guinsoo stack to increase steadily in front of an enemy attack and increase the attack damage both physical and magical for every hit is given a stack and if the enemy is campion body body then everything will be good in your favor
