Hi guys, and I'm SFFO, most of you don't know me, well everysingle one of your to be fair, but this is my Skarner top lane build. Yeah yeah I know what you thinking "Skarner top lane is so boring he's Jungler dude", but I'm here to show you the other way of playing has Skarner, and that is Solo Top. I've played Skarner jungle for so long, and I started trying him out has a solo top, results where amazing. So before you judge a book by its cover take your time understanding my thinking behind this build will you? Thank you.

When you are farming with skarner in top lane, only use your E if theres a huge wave of minions, and then Q, so your health pops up on place, but if its normal waves, just last hit them and keep zoning the enemy, when you have pushed your lane, try to invade their jungle steal the big golen, the wraiths, etc...

The runes I have are what probably enhances skarner of my point of view, you can try other runes has well, he is quite a effective when jungling whithout proper runes so he can lane has well.

The masteries focus Ap, but we are going to focus ad, why is that? Because its for your E>Q combo early game, so your health is high and you can keep poking him with you E.

Manamune? Trinity force? I'm out of here! Wait wait Don't leave it, try a few games with this and you will see, it works just fine, believe me. if it doesn't work you can come here and say what you thinked about the build and how you played so I can see what you or I did wrong.

Skill Sequence

Ok so, i don't know the skill lvling process D: so I just say focus E and your Q, lvl W last and priorize your ulti. Level E at lvl 1, Q at lvl 2 and W at lvl3, and keep on lvling E for sustain.

Team Work

In a team fight, try to engage their ad carry or the ap carry, they are easyer to take down then their tank or jungler if they are tanky, use your ulti on those carrys, and let your team rape their *** (Bring me that bootie).

So I did this build in like, 10 minutes, I know its pretty lame with no pictures and stuff but oh well, you came here to learn or to admire text costumization hum?
Overall this build on my point of view is one of those that you must try.
