About Skarner

Skarner is normally a Jungler. But i think, Skarner is more a multi cast Champion. You can play him as a Jungler, as AD, AP not so much but you could, or as Tank.

The nice thing on Skarner is, that he isn´t like some other junglers. If I take War Wick now, his skill are more passive than offense! You play him more with out his skills.

Skarner is in this case diffrent to some junglers. You must play with his skills if you want to win and kill!

Greater Mark of Desolation
With this Runes you get some Armor Penetration. Armor Penetration mean that you *ignore* this number or % of Armor by the Enemys Champions and by Minions and monsters. You can also use or .

Those Runes give you Armor. So at the beginning (when you have all of them) you get +15 Armor. What you also can user for the Seal slots are: or .

They give you at level 18 +24,3 Magic resist. But if you don´t want them you can also buy or ether .

I did by Offense 21 because for me, Skarner needs Armor, some Crit, and AS. You can also do the Masteries Points in Offense for Mana and AP. If you play him as a AP Champ. But i would say there are not enough AP Abilitys.

For Defense I did mpst for Health regen. and some for Armor. You can also do some for Bladed Armor if you jungle or Indomitable instad of +30 Health.

In Ulity I put 0 because I dont play Skarner as a jungler. If you play him as, you can put Points for +Gold and for Buffs.

When you do basic attacks your skill cooldowns will be low by 0,5 sec if you do a skill it will be 1 sec.

This is the first Skill you get in the game. This also the first skill that you master directly. If you do it, enemys and minions/monsters in your range will get dmg. If you do it than a second time, it will do more dmg and also all in range will get slowed. If you wait to long and you do it to late, you wont slow them with your next attack. Also when you activate it and you dont hit one monster/minion or enemy your next attack wont slow anyone.
YOu can also use this attack to escape. If have low Health and an enemy follows you and he is faster as you dothis:
When he is in range, do Crystal Slash, he will get hittet. Than yyou do it second and he will get slowed.

You get this skill at level 2. You will master it 2nd. It gives you shild that absorbs dmg and while you have it your movement and your attack speed is increased.
Also you can follow enemys easylie to cath them. This works so:
Avtivat Crystalline Exoskeleton, followe your enemy (because of your fast movement speed you will cath him easy), when you are in range do Crystal Slash, do it second so he gets slowed and you can pick up the kill.

You learn this skill at level 4. You will also master it as last. By activating it, you will dmg all minions,monster enemys that are in line. Also (you can see it if there is a blue sign above them) if you attack the hitten enemys they will give you health.
This skill also helps when you play as a jungler. When you play Skarner as a jungler, learn this skill with level 3. Take still first Crystall Slash and than Crystalline Exoskeleton and lust but not least Fracture.

This skill is your ulty. You have to mark a enemy in range. Than it will get like frozen and it can do nothing. You can pull it around you while it is acitvatet. After this the enemy will get *unfrozen*. It will get dmg when markign an enemy and when the skill ends. Impale can help you also for a escape. When you have Impale and you are almost dead, the enemy wants to catch you. So do this: activate Impale, while you are moving you do Crystal Slash (so next attack will slow him), and when Impale ends do agan Crystal Slash so he gets slowed and last you do Crystalline Exoskeleton. Thats how you can escape and also deal some dmg to him.

Summoner Spells

Is a kind of must with Skarner. At beginning on game, you can easy first blood with it and with Crystal Slash

Also good to have when you already used Exhaust and you can´t slow your target with Crystal Slash, you can Flash to them and kill them!

Beginners who haven´t all Spells yet, can tak those:
