Skarner jungle
 
How is Skarner in the new jungle? I haven't seen him played in s3 at all and don't know why. Thinking about getting him but want to know other people's opinions.

I know he is free and will be trying him out.

With the recents buffs/nerfs to the jungle once again, Skarner is hurt by it once again. It's not that he is really bad, it's just that his clear time is getting worse and worse. At the same time the jungle changes were made, Skarner had got hit with a nerf to his shield and his ult. See, Skarner clears the really small neutrals in the camps but the big ones have too much health for his AoE damage, whilst champions like fiddle do more damage to the big one with Drain. That is really the only problem with him. His ganks are the same as before but he just has a harder time through the jungle.

I regret buying Skarner in S3. The new jungle hurts him.

He worked well for me when I played him, and I've been seeing him do well in games. Maybe not the god tier he was in S2, but still a very good pick.

He isn't top tier anymore in the jungle. The first clear is very difficult and puts you pretty low. His ganks are worse since the nerfs that went through. He is an ok jungler but his ganks aren't as good until 6. His biggest problem is the niche he filled is filled better by other people. The only saving grace is his ult is still extremely good, it's just that's all he has going for him right now. I used to love Skarner in S2 jungle, but after the first couple tries in S3 I prefer stronger junglers. He's just a lot weaker than he was and there are better picks sadly :(

He almost needs to go straight AP. Support jungling fails in solo q since you have to carry your team more.

support skarner blows.

He is like tier 4 now. Horrible. Shield got nerfed, ult got nerfed, new jungle is not aoe friendly anymore.

I mained him jungle for s3 release, hes vulnerable to counter jungling and you have to play him as tanky support which is no fun when his ulti is on cd. You have to spam q so you have eternal mana problems without blue. Playing a support tank solo q is not fun when you can't trust yoyr team to follow up
