So my current skarner build is:

Trinity
Randuin's
Force of Nature
Tenacity Boots
Gunblade
Yomuu's

For CDR, tankiness, attackspeed, and move speed.

I'm thinking about trying:
Manamune
Frozen Heart
Wits End
Boots of Swiftness
Trinity
Nashor's Tooth

To max CDR and attack speed only. Get MR/health/attack speed runes. Any thoughts?

Try this:

1. Manamune
2. Boots (w/e...zerks or mercs)
3. Sheen
4. Hextech Gun
5. Finish Tri Force
6. Finish Hex

Then add defensive items. You would be surprised at your survivability with this build. It doesn't look like it would add a lot of survivability, but with the constant Q spam + your shield + your heal from E, it's crazy. You are are constantly healing yourself with all your abilities and the spell vamp + lifesteal.

I've had a ton of luck with this build. Also, I max R > Q > W > E

Q + auto attack is your main source of dmg. You max out manamune quickly, so you do a surprising amount of dmg with this build.

I actually like yours a lot. May switch FoN for Banshee's if enemy team has poke, and I might sub out Forzen Heart for Randuin's. But I like what you've got now.

Hotshot rushes catalyst and shurelia's followed by gunblade> banshees.

he always takes mid and always gets a very good score.

I have many questions about this build but I"ve seen it work well and consistently but I don't know if that's just because he and his team were very skilled anyway.


i'm not a hotshot fanboy but I did look high and low for players that made skarner work for them and he is one of them. he does still say skarner is UP but did well (in ranked) anyway.

I am not a huge Gunblade fan. Just seems to not fit in my build until after the game is over. Also, I jungle. Thus I have Wriggles which suffices for my life steal.

Wriggles
Boots (Merc, Ninja, Swift)
Trinity (not always rushed, but always get sheen)
Wit's or BV depending
Atma's (considering FoN, but Atma's seems to server me well)
By now, it is usually over so I don't have anything after this. This is where I would do Maldred's and or Gunblade.

Personally I use for endgame:

Wit's End
Atmas
Warmogs
Merc Treads
Aegis of the Legion/Guardian Angel (depends if support grabs it)
(Flavor Item [Trinity, Wriggles, Madreds Bloodrazor, Gunblade, Youmuu's, Banshees, Frozen Heart])
