Skarner's Passive
Skarner's Passive
Skarner's presence causes crystals to spawn in set locations around the map. Crystals can be captured by either team by standing on top of them. Capturing a crystal prevents them from being captured by the opposing team for 15 seconds.

While within range of a Crystal Spire, Skarner gains 70-120 Movement Speed and 43-160% Attack Speed, while restoring 2% of his maximum Mana every second. Spire radius is 1600.

Skarner slashes around himself, dealing physical damage equal to 1 / 1.5 / 2 / 2.5 / 3% of target's maximum health (+0.20 of attack damage) to all surrounding enemies.

If an enemy is hit, subsequent uses of Crystal Slash within 5 seconds deal bonus magic damage equal to 1 / 1.5 / 2 / 2.5 / 3% of target's maximum health (+0.20 of attack damage) (+30% of ability power) to the target.

Basic attacks against non-structures reduce Crystal Slash's cooldown by 0.25 seconds, quadrupled to 1 against enemy champions.

Skarner receives a shield for up to 6 seconds which shields him for 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14% of Skarner's maximum Health (+80% of ability power).

While the shield persists, his movement speed is increased by 16 / 20 / 24 / 28 / 32%, ramping up over the first 3 seconds.

Skarner summons a blast of crystalline energy which deals 40 / 65 / 90 / 115 / 140 (+20% of ability power) magic damage to all enemies in a line and slows them by 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50% for 2.5 seconds, while also afflicting them with Crystal Venom for 5 seconds.

Skarner's next basic attack against a target afflicted by Crystal Venom deals 30 / 50 / 70 / 90 / 110 additional physical damage and stuns them for 1.25 seconds.

Every time Skarner triggers Crystal Venom or stings an enemy with Impale, Fracture's cooldown is reduced by the corresponding base duration of the disable.

Skarner suppresses an enemy champion for 1.75 seconds, dealing 60% of his total Attack Damage as physical damage and 20 / 60 / 100 (+50% of ability power) magic damage to them. During this time, Skarner can move freely and will drag his helpless victim around with him. When the effect ends, Skarner's target will be dealt the same amount of magic and physical damage again.
