He seems cool but did we really need another self heal? D: He seems kinda Nocturneish! :x

I can promise that the passive will be nerfed.

First champion in awhile that seems a little lackluster IMO.

First of all, I thought he was portrayed as a --GIANT-- crystal scorpion. Not a tiny little crystal scorpion that's about the size of a preteen little pyromaniac girl. He should DEFINITELY be bigger, and more brutal looking, he's a scorpion. I thought you guys were making a monster?

Also... Impale... wow, disappointment. I like how the ability works, but seriously? His tail shoots a little ray that "impales", I guess? He's supposed to be a giant monstrous scorpion made of crystal (sharp) he should impale the **** out of someone with his tail, in a brutal manner, THEN drag them around, and the second damage part could be when he brutally rips his tail out of the victim. That's what I imagined this whole time at least, and was very excited.

His passive seems alright, but it's a definite rip off from Ezreal. Why not listen to the community and make a burrow type skill as a passive? Maybe every 4th spell he uses will cause him to burrow afterwards, while still being able to move (similar to Vlad's Pool) and slows and damages enemies above SLIGHTLY. Also if you time this passive on the 4th spell when you Impale someone, instead of dragging them around you just impale them then lift them up and slam them brutally in the ground, for the same amount of damage and a stun.

Just a random suggestion, don't mind me. But yeah, some minor changes could definitely cause more players to buy him, as he stands now he seems like the least attractive champion you guys have had in awhile.

-Thanks, Hate.

They complain about champions sustaining in lane, which is why Wukong got no heal of any kind, and then they go and give Skarner a self heal. :S

while the impaled one is being held, can your teammates still atack him? or he will be untargetable?
