I am confused to how his Q works, I am imagining it would be like Nidalee's Swipe?


I though that it was more like Amumu's Tantrum

I am slightly disappointed with Skarner. I agree with many others that Skarner's ult Impale should actually impale them. I know that would be a hard animation to pull off but look into it. Second and Finally I feel that instead of having Fracture he should have a move that is sort of like a burrow. In this move he would go under the ground and pop up attacking an enemy and stunning them for a short time. There could be aoe damage or slow but I think that would be to op and he is more of a one on one type of champion. I do believe that he would be a much better champion with these adjustments so for the good of the League look into it.

I love how people are like, "The Ultimate is OP! You can't tower hug, he can drag you back!" Well I think you guys forget that there are champions that can reposition you the same way or better. Like Blitzcrank's Rocketgrab and Singed's Fling, not to a mention they're on lower cool downs(assuming impale will have the average ultimate ability cool down).


I think you forget that Blitzcrank's grab is a skillshot, and the range of Fling means that you cop tower hits anyway. Skarner's is still way better, unless of course it has a tiny range.

Your most unique champ to date. Just some educated guessing here, an attack speed, armor pen rune page. Then rape jungle and get trinity force asap? sounds good to me

Dude, who cares about the animation, its fine the way it is. Afterall he is a magical crystal scorpion. Did you even think about how ridiculous it would look to impale a fully stacked cho and drag him around on his tail? no you didnt, it was a good choice by the department to make it a ethereal chain type of thing.
