Seriously, I'm sick of Skarner being so powerful.

Skarner is definitely a strong offtank and jungler, but I wouldn't call him OP. His ult doesn't have the same kind of game-changing utility as Morgana's, Sona's, janna's, or Amumu's, but it can certainly win a fight. Still, he's not impervious, and there are still other strong offtank choices that could be just as effective. As an example of another strong offtank who would be taking the carry out of the fight, one could bring up Olaf. His E does 1/10 a carry's HP no problem, he's unkiteable, and his damage increases as he gets focused.

Both of these guys get at the carry and try to take him out of the fight, but they do so in different ways.

And it's not like QSS is ever a bad item to take anyways, as it adds a good amount of MR.

I'm not just talking about his damage, what about the speed advantage he has on pretty much every single jungler?

I don't care about my rep, but you can +rep if you want to.

Sorry m8 skarner is not too powerful..

Meta calls for ganky ****ers(only know 1 team which runs with an afk-farming jungler is Atlanta Dat yi)

Skarner just can't perform a mid-gank pre-6, his speed-boost is pretty mediocre at early levels. So even a pushed top-lane might not even need to burn a summoner to escape a red-buff skarner. When teamfights start, u can kite him through eternity. And if his team isn't following right up.. you aren't gonna do **** to ur opponent. Hell, not even his post-6 ganks are that good unless u reach the opponent, then he's dead.

He can't split push very good.

He's lacking cleartime compared to Udyr and Shyvana, don't know if there are others.

Skarner is powerful, just like any champion is. But he's not gamebreakingly op. Imo he's in a good spot.

Edit: He kinda needs blue-buff to have a exceptionally good clear-time.
Ty MM and Blood for the sigs :3 | Rammus is comming back - heard it here first!

Hes a fairly good champ, ganks are so-so without a slow pre 6.

But that ulti .... no, not even close to sth I'd call useful. Its only strong point: Its a supression.
But that also applies to WW's/Malz's ulti, plus even while the dmg on Skarner's is ok the others are better overall and have range.
You can drag ppl into your team? Yeeeeah, right. You can drag them for 1.75sec if your guys arent in range by the time you started the pull a simple non-cleaned stun/fear/taunt/snare would have done the same.
Maybe there is this split-second scenario where s1 from Skarner's side can land his stun too for an actual kill thx to the tiny drag distance, but you dont have an ulti to be slightly better than a normal hard-CC.
(+ while Skarner can drag a target other guys will just CC it from a distance..)

Against Melee's, Skarner's ult isn't even better than Puncturing taunt, which lasts 3 seconds with 5 ranks and has a 12-second cooldown (**** as a disable it still works against ranged, although you can't drag them). What does this mean? Rammus is better.

Ok.
