I have recently started playing Skarner off and on and found out he is a tank. I don't get a lot of kills but a huge amount of assists. What role do you think Skarner plays?

You can play Skarner as a "trinity-off tank". This is the way that i prefer (and the way that pulled me from 800 - 1000 elo, still rising.)

Playing him as a full tank is waste of potential, he CAN do it, but far from advised.

Do you jungle Skarner? if not, then you need to learn it. He is in many peoples opinion, the second best jungler in the game, some even think he is the best (like me)

The way i build him is following:


x 5






And so on.
Thanks to me and Elleeeeeka (love that name) for my sigs.

Hes most effective in jungle, can be also played top. He is considered one of best junglers. He can be build in many ways, currently most popular is Trinity Force way. Most appreciated is his one-target ultimate which can win team fights if done well. Also his perma-slow is very good on ganks.

i prefer a more magic damage oriented role, not as off tanky as others but more damaging.

Sorcerer's Shoes
Sheen
Hextech Gunblade
Guinsoo's Rageblade
Lich Bane or Trinity Force, i usually prefer lich bane unless im doing really good, money is usually the deciding factor for me.
Abyssal Mask
Zhonya's Hourglass

in no real order there.

in my experience, Skarner is a tanky DPS hybrid initiator.

which basically means he deals magic and physical damage, doesn't burst, and is really damn good at starting fights.

generally Skarner can turn a 5v5 into a 5v4 just because someone on the other team made a tiny mistake.

I would suggest that Skarner jungles, because in a lane he pushes it like crazy and, IMO, isn't using his full potential. If a Skarner with red buff ganks around level 4, it's a nightmare, especially if he's ganking with someone that has CC.

Plus his clear time is quick, he's sustained, and can win fights with most junglers.
Credit to jhoijhoi for this intense battle.

Well I am semi-new to the game but i have bought Skarner and played him often. His jungle is great no question and his ult makes for the best ganks ever ( nothing like pulling someone to there death). There are some good guides out there.

Anyway to the point JUNGLE and gank, gank, gank.

Thank you guys because I was getting scared that I was not playing him right when I didnt get a lot of kils. What I did was just tank and Impale the squishies back to my team so then my team would finish them off. And yes, of course I also play him as a ganker.
