Hey, this would be my first mobafire guide, and mobafire has helped my quite a bit through my 500 sum odd games ive played (if you wanna find me my username is Berlox on the american server) I hope this will help you. I came across this build while playing a game as Skarner where we didnt really have a tank, so throught the levels i decided to fill this role. I started with another ranked solo top skarner guide on here but adapted it after getting the trinity force. Endgame i could solo just about anyone, no one could put a remarkable dent into me, and I hit 500s every time my sheen was up and it was just fun. . .

Pros / Cons

    very good late game
    very durable late game
    Skarner has very high base health and damage
    Incredible chaser
    Passive works wondors

    Sorta hard to play early game
    only has slows and a supress for CC
    somewhat item dependant

I havent really experienced to much with this build but:
    i start with a regrowth pendant and a health pot for sustainability then i move to philosophers stone
    then boots
    sheen ( which i always recommend you have)
    finish off boots into mercury treads
    finish a trinity force
    build a frozen mallet
    then finish off with an atma's impaler
    sell the Philosophers stone for a Force of nature, and Warmogs armor
Core build:
    Boots(Berserkers Greaves or Mercury Treads or Ninja Tabai (ill talk about that in a second))
    Trinity force
    Frozen mallet/Rylais Crystal Scepter
Boots, which to get and what circumstances does it cover:
    Berserkers Greaves: are only the best choice if the other team is badly built has no threatening CC or AD
    Mercury Treads: Are the best choice if the other team has lots of CC or threatening AP champions
    Ninja Tabai : are best if there is a lot of AD and little AP it gives you that extra armor ad dodge chance
Alternative items:
    Heavy AD:
    Thornmail: The armor helps alot and it gives that great passive of damage return
    Sunfire Cape: Nice armor and passive AoE
    Guardians Angel: will really help best if theres a high burst champion like Leblanc and very high AD to go with it this would not be my first recamendation

Heavy AP:
    Banshees Veil: good Magic resist and the passive spell blocker this item should be sell explanatory
    Guardians Angel: will really help best if theres a high burst champion like Leblanc and very high AD to go with it this would not be my first recamendation
