Hey guys and girls.

Got a quick question for you all, as iv started playing jungle Skarner again and i have noticed that in longer games (aka when i reach 5th item) i have no clue to what to build to add to him. I need some ideas on how to finish his build if any of you have any good items for it.


The current build is this:

1- Spirit of the Ancient Golem
2- Mobility Boots (with green upgrade)
3- Sunfire Aegis
4- Randuin's Omen
5- Iceborn Gauntlet (iv been building this lately mostly for the slow, but well willing to take it out of the build)
6-??? no clue....
7- Sweeping Lens
Current League Goals:

Reach 1000 Normal Wins (Done)
Reach 2000 Normal Wins
Reach Gold Tier (S6)

(ty to Ninja Trigger for the sic)

Spirit visage works for anyone. It is all about the 20% cdr, mr and hp; the healthreg and healthreg increase aren't really the most important aspects of the item. It usually is better than banshee's as a melee champion, you just gotta mind the CDR cap.

I also find Warmog's Armor to be a rather nice buy.

And if it's an all AD comp, with your present buys, a Thornmail might not go amiss either. But only in all AD comps and in addition to what you have already, not instead of.

Warmog's isnt that good anymore, I'd stay away from that. Thornmail is highly situational indeed.

A tad much armor and not enough MR. And no, don't get Warmog's Armor.

I'd get Trinity Force on him. Or if you'd like to stay tanky and prefer not to fork over all dat gold on it, stick with Iceborn Gauntlet and get a Wit's End perhaps. Works very well with Sunfire Aegis and beefs up your AAs.

^Iceborn's slow is nice, but with buffs to Trinity Iceborn is inferior.

Try this build:

Ancient Golem
Tabi
Randuins
Visage
Triforce
FH

Not necessarily in that order

Iceborn Gauntlet may be a bit better coming out of the jungle because you get the added damage, CDR and, most importantly, armor. When you go for Trinity Force you'll definitely do more damage and be more mobile, but you'll have to get all tank items after.

Just a personal preference, as I tend to build 2 offensive items or try to get the most defense/offense out of them, like getting Sunfire Aegis, Iceborn Gauntlet and Wit's End. They may be considered defensive items, but they do beef up your damage considerably. Enough not to be overlooked anyways.

That being said, I did mention that I too would get Trinity Force on him, but I found it to be a bit expensive and I'd just sit on the Sheen for a long time whilst getting tankier. When I went for Iceborn Gauntlet I finished it faster and got better results early game, as I was very tanky very soon.

Bottom line is test it out and see what works best for you.
