Skarner does look extremely undersized i mean it will be WAY too ridiculous when there is a little char like that pulling around a cho that has full feast stacks

i'm a little worried that his in-game model is rather small for a monster champion...

erm... i dont think the purpose of skarner is to pull the main tank of the opposing team. obviously you're in the tank focus bracket :\

You are right for the vorpal blade.

Shen Shadow dash is a taunt and Skarner's ult is a suppress (like WW and Malz ult). This champion have nothing to do with Shen.
actually to me it seems like the w is an AOE and so if you have a pretty good attack speed you can go into the middle of a minion wave 1 hit all of them then w again

depending on the cd of course
but still it is more of a mass skill heal

that is just what i see

imagine if you will

You are in a team fight and your Ezreal [or any other squishy] is getting hurt hella bad and is under about 500 hp so this cho is coming in screaming with a ghost to feast and pick up the kill wouldnt you ulti suppress him away?

I have a question for riot

While he is ulting someone will he still be able to attack the person he is ulting and if so shouldn't there be a different animation for it
(just a though that would make him seem WAY more cool)
