I just need an simple answer, no hatin' since he is good at both, I prefer him in jungle since he got his shield, spell which gives lifesteal and his q, although my brother and friend wants me to go in lane. Your opinion?

Thanks Xiaowiriamu for the awesome sig!

Any champion can lane, but Skarner is a pretty solid jungler.

Skarner toplane works! i did it many times and it is pretty strong.

comparing jungle to toplane skarner is useless tho because they fulfill different roles...

when you pick skarner in ranked, its not about where to play him.

Its about who fills his respective role best (skarner does fine against most toplanes but there are champions that outhsine him, same goes for the jungle)

why would you lane skarner? his potential is in ganking and his ult. It's like laning with nocturne, it works, but what's the point?

The reason why lane Skarner isn't that popular is that most top laners can farm with little hassle against him, running the risk of going against a very farm dependent champion who will out scale you with ease late-game: Nasus, Poppy, Vladimir, Singed etc.

He is simply not that good of a duelist compared to the likes of Jax or Olaf.

Lane Skarner is terrible. Anyone can shut him down at top.

I have managed to do really good with Skarner in lane, but let me tell you... Omagma and I have something in common, Skarner being our best champion. He is much better in the jungle.

With this game, you can put anybody anywhere and play any role. What's important is who does it and what they do best. Examples: Skarner = Jungle, Kassadin = Mid, Akali = Top...

Au contraire, don't limit yourself. Just figure out what works best, and have fun.
