I'm currently creating a build for Skarner. The current items are:
Mercury's Treads
Hextech Gunblade
Lich Bane
Randuin's Omen
Force of Nature
I'm still considering the sixth item. It currently stands between Madred's Bloodrazor and Frozen Heart. Which one should I get? Or should I get something completely different?

You don't have enough AP to make Lich bane worth it. For for Trinity force instead.

I don't really like Trinity Force due to it just giving low boosts on pretty much everything. How about if I take Rabadon's for the last item, keep Lich bane and remove Force of Nature for Frozen Heart or Madred's Bloodrazors?

Then you're not tanky enough.

To be honest, Trinity force gives Skarner everything he needs. AP for shields and all his skills, AD for his basic attacks and 1 of his skills, HP because why not, Mana because he needs it, AS for his passive, MS for... running <_<
The procs are just bonus. Sheen combos nicely with his Q as well.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Trinity Force is a must on Skarner. I honestly build him like Udyr, grab a Wit's End too. Run around with tank items after that and be a boss.
+Rep me if i'm useful!

Ok, then. How about these items:
Mercury's Treads
Hextech Gunblade
Trinity Force
Randuin's Omen
Wit's End
Force of Nature or maybe another Trinity Force if the game lasts long enough

Frozen Heart is great on him, better than Randuin's. I never play a game without it. Never get two .

Skip FoN with your builds, you dont have the HP to back it up anyway. Wit's end besides boots as the first MR item is a good choice.

Ok, but I'll keep Randuin and change Force of Nature for Frozen Heart, but why not two Trinity?

The passive is unique so stacking wont improve that. Also with the gold you would have spent on the 2nd TF could be put toward pretty much anything else in the game. Maybe something with health? If you're gonna have FoN you need a decent amount of health to back it up.
Wanna know what item is the bestest evar?! Here you go :) :)
Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard and myself(:3) for the sigs!
+Rep me if I was awesome and said awesome things like i'm supposed to :D
