I'm gonna like this champion, he interests me. I have a feeling he is going to be a total boss.

If you remember correctly, we (or at least quite a few people) said that about Leona and Wukong too, and look how they turned out.

Yeah, well I mean what are the chances of him being bad he is a giant crystal scorpin. He is gonna be pretty good....wait I just said that. Well, bad news is that whenever I say these things the opposite will happen.

hope you all don't insta-buy him.

That's a tad annoying and unfair, but will be an interesting mechanic.


well i think it will only mean skarner cant attack but he can move tooltip says so

Umm... NO? Suppression is called suppression because it "suppresses" summoner spells.
That's why it was invented.

Skarner will be able to move. Read the tooltip.

There's nothing to indicate suppression-skills suppress the users. Malzahar, Warwick, and Urgot only look self-suppressed because of the nature of the individual animations that involve single targets.

That's why those 3 were given suppression in the first place. Nether Grasp, Infinite Duress, and Hyper-Kinetic Position Reverse are highly important to those champions' success while being single-target, making being able to use Cleanse unfair against their high-cost ultimates.

I wonder how good of a jungler Skarner will be. All his basic skills point to him being a pretty solid jungler.

@PotatisFarfar:

Remove Scurvy and Quicksilver Sash are the only items capable of defying suppression.

My belief is, QSS was left to make it stand out as a decent niche purchase; and GP, was left alone because it is his only escape mechanic, and melee-carries need high-utility to do well.

So, just wait for him to cast the escape ability first, then Ult. Right?
Catching GP with cc after he eats an orange is like catching Garen without his spin: "NOOO!!!"

inc Jungle rework. Red buff hastes instead of slows. Derp
