Crystal Slash's attack speed buff is 5 seconds not 6 seconds
Exoskeleton's cool down is still 18 seconds.
Mana cost of Fracture is 40/45/50/55/60 not 30/35/40/45/50

Are these an older or new version from what you posted friday?
Yes, good catch. The next PBE update will have the Exoskeleton cooldown at 14 seconds like I said. Also, fracture mana costs will be reduced to match the patch notes. The attack speed buff will remain at 5 seconds and I will update the patch notes.

Edit: these numbers are still not final so they may change again.

Awesome! Thanks for the response.

He feels pretty good, although I would suggest a slight buff to the damage numbers on his Q.

Hec dishes out 200 damage plus scaling on each of his 1.5s cd Q cleaves. It'd be nice if Skarner could deal a bit more damage as skarner and hec are both sort of the same niche jungler.

I love the changes. They feel so right atm. Only thing i have to add. At a certain point if you got good enough stats his power level rises exponetialy.

Hey all, I have another quick update. We will be pulling Skarner off PBE tomorrow for just a few days so that we can totally lock down Xerath and Heimer testing. Play him today and collect whatever info you can and he should be back on PBE very soon.

Keep up the discussion, this is all very useful. Thanks!

Thank you for looking at our favorite Brackern. He really needs it.

Really strong work here, I've found his mid game a little mana intensive. Even with spirit stone just throwing out a few q's to clear some jungle seems to run him out of mana before he can enter a lane to gank, other than that he's pretty much in a good spot.

Scruffy, can you address the concerns some of us have had about how this new Skarner's kit feels generic and how you've seemed to refuse to comment on any criticisms of the idea.

Seriously, stop ignoring us. We keep telling you the new Skarner feels very un-Skarner like.

I understand that it's for summary's sake.


But I don't think we understand why it is that you ignored pages and pages and pages and pages of questions regarding (not the strength!) the uniqueness of the champion, and how this version of his Q and E are near carbon copies of Hecarim's rampage and Lulu's glitterlance. What fantasy do we get to fulfill now with the kit outside of his ultimate that we can't get somewhere else?

Are you using E at all in the jungle, or are Q and W alone running you dry?
