Skarner is a jungling champions with the ability to pull off really effective ganks. His shield allows for him to close the gap between him and the enemy. Once he gets close to the enemy he can then use his slash to keep the enemy slowed, then use his ultimate to drag the enemy back toward his teammates or back into a team fight.

Some items that work well with Skarner:

  • Wriggles lantern
  • Sheen
  • Trinity Force
  • Atma's Impaler
  • Hextech Gunblade
  • Randuin's Omen
  • Banshee's Veil
  • Warmogs


  • Energize (Passive): Every time Skarner preforms a basic attack on an enemy, the cooldowns on his abilities will decrease by 1 second if a champion is hit, and 0.5 secons if a non champion is hit. This passive is not activated by attacking towers.
  • Crystal Slash: This ability is an area of effect damages all enemies hit. If he hits the same enemy again a slow will be applied. After the first slash hits Skarner also becomes empowered allowing him to do addition magic damage on his next hit.
  • Crystalline Exoskeleton: This ability is a shield that blocks incoming damage. While the shield is active Skarner gets a considerable boost in both movement speed, and attack speed.
  • Fracture: This ability is a short range skill shot that deals magic damage to enemies hit and leaves a glowing mark on them. If Skarner attacks marked enemies with his basic attacks or Crystal Slash he will regain health. The amount of health restored is reduced with each subsequent hit.
  • Impale(Ultimate): Skarner latches his tail on to a target champion. While attached his enemy is suppressed and Skarner is free to drag them around behind him for a few seconds. This ability deals damage both on hit, and when the effect ends.
