Would Skirmisher's be viable on Nunu in certain...

So I was wondering about your opinions on Skirmisher's Sabre on Nunu & Willump if you're in heavy counterjungle mode. The vision, damage reduction, and true damage from a challenging Smite would be very useful if you find yourself duking it out with the enemy jungler in his own house. Although, most counterjungling these days is just opportunistic so maybe just stick with Ranger's Trailblazer? I'm not sure so what do you all think.

with Blood Boil and Ice Blast, Nunu & Willump should have very little trouble getting away from junglers. Because nunu doesn't really kill champions fast, i'd still be a little against Skirmisher's Sabre for the reason that in order for you to really make the most of it and try to punish your opponents jungle, you'd be forced into an extended, long, all-in, which your opponents can quite easily react to and trap you.

I'd still moreso support a Ranger's Trailblazer / hit n run kinda counterjungling style from nunu.

I don't think it's particularly effective for counter-jungling, but yeah it's viable. You can use it in team fights on the ADC for the damage reduction and it gives you a sort of Ignite type effect in ganks. It's pretty easy to stay close to someone and keep autoing them so you'll probably get a lot of value out of the true damage.
Thanks to Minho for the sig!

Every pro scene Nunu jungler uses Skirmisher's Sabre just to shut down the enemy ADC. Tho, he is rather bad at solo queue, as he can't carry.

As a lover of Devourer nunu I unfortunately ave never tried it. I'll look into it; poachers is fun just to Q and Smite and run.
Eyy
