Its me ya know
My summoner name is the same as mobafire, RaneOFTerroR. I am interested in joining a ranked team for serious play, not trolling and flaming, I play to win. My main positions are ADC, top, and jungler. My main junglers are Shyvana with smite and exhaust, and Skarner with flash and smite. My main top laners are Fiora with flash and ignite, Rumble with flash and exhaust, and Yorick with, flash and ignite. My main ADC bottom is Ezreal, Miss Fortune, and Varus. I am very adaptable as a carry these are just my favorite three. I am good at matching up with supports for example, I would take Varus with Nunu so they end up snared inside his ult, Blitzcrank and Vayne for the pull and condemn into wall. Ik many more combinations and would be glad to use them for your team, If you have or are starting a ranked team add me and I will accept when my laptop is back from the shop, I am currently using someone elses laptop and I wont download stuff on a cpu that isnt mine.
This is my first build on Mobafire and im hoping it goes well. I prefer to jungle skarner rather than lane but if somebody chooses a jungler after I have already chosen him on draft, then I will lane Skarner with this build. For the jungling, the Boots of Swiftness and Hextech Gunblade helps with ganks, the speed boost from your shields combine well with the boots and the Gunblade can slow enemies from afar. When about to pull an enemy use shurelya's reverie and immedatly use quicksilver sash if you are affected by any cc (crowd control).
Skarner may be more viable as a jungler in general although in some cases he can be a great top lane, for example if there is a Yorick top then Skarners Fracture (E) will hit the ghouls and his Crystal Slash (Q) will let him use all the marks, healing him and killing the ghouls. Another example is if akali is top, skarner can use his Crystal Slash and if it shows that he gained a charge that means you hit her, and if she attacks you quickly drag her away from her shroud. When about to drag somebody use youmuu's Ghostblade for the speed boost. If a melee enemy tries to attack you when they are pushed, feel free to pull them to the tower and slow them it helps a ton. Youmuu's Ghostblade will give skarner extra attack speed for his passive and Wit's End, while adding damage to his attacks, will help prolong the attack speed and movement speed boost. He can effectively escape enemies when a jungler ganks and can also support ganks his jungler makes. For example if Nocturne ganks then Skarners pull will help Nocturne stay in range for the fear.
