Well, let's see. Both have really good ganks, it just depends on what you prefer. Skarner is usually built as a tank, and he's great for it between his AoE slow and his ult. Lee Sin can be built either as a tank or a bruiser, and either way he's an awesome damage dealer. The skill cap is markedly higher on LS, though, since his main source of damage is a skill shot.

So ask yourself, do you want a good safe tank jungle with a relatively low skill cap, or a bursty, threatening scary AD jungler that requires a large amount of finesse to master? I personally enjoy both of them depending on what my team needs, since they're both extremely strong junglers.

From what I've seen, both have great clear times.

Lee Sin has better ganks, but Skarner is almost impossible to counterjungle.

if you're playing in blind pick - go skarner
if you're playing in ranked 5v5 and you're low - mid elo - go skarner
if you're playing in ranked 5v5 and you're high elo - you can go either skarn or lee sin

the reasoning behind this is that although lee sin is a good hero and his ganks are nice and all.. he can't carry games on his own. you need to really rely on your team to pull through. sadly for most games this isn't the case. so skarner would be the better choice as he is just beastly when he gets his feed train rolling. skarner can actually carry games. lee sin cannot.

the downside to playing skarner is that he gets pretty repetitive and his skill cap is low. lee sin on the other hand is extremely challenging and has a lot of potential... that potential lies in supporting your team though and sometimes you just can't sit back and let your team carry the game (unfortunately)

id go with skarner if you ca re about winning

skarner is a tank/tanky dps. fantastic ganks post 6, and his ones beforehand arent exactly negligible. He is able to carry games unlike lee sin, and he dishes out alot of aoe+ a perma-slow.

leesin- better ganks early, not ult reliant. can easy set up your lanes to snowball with an early gank, however, he is much harder to be good with and cannot carry games.

so if you're new to both, pick skarner.

skarner is a tank that doesn't really rely on good teammates to gank and kill people. Lee Sin, with a good team comp, can wreck teams with ganks that enemies can rarely run from.
