If you have any feedback, leave it in the comments, this is a fairly new design I'm fiddling with, and still haven't finished it entirely so bare with me.
The only three items I think are a must on AP skarner are Nashor's Tooth, Rod of Ages, and lichbane.
If they are a really heavy AD team, swap out Rabadon's Deathcap for a Zhonya's Hourglass.
If you are getting bursted by a mage, swap out Spirit of the Spectral Wraith for Spirit Visage because it will give you increased CDR aswell as more healing from Fracture.
When you come in to gank, you want to position yourself behind the enemy by leading with Crystalline Exoskeleton, land a Crystal Slash and lead their flash/jump(depending on the champ), after that use Fracture and quickly use Impale. Drag them back while using Crystal Slash. If you find that the lane you gank for misses a skillshot when you drag them, hold them in place with Impale instead of dragging them.
