Which champions have skills that require timing, positioning or finesse? Similar to some Dota/HoN heroes ( Pudge/Devourer/Soulstealer/Valkryie), or have a spammable Q like Pandamonium from HoN?....OR are unique like Invoker from Dota?

I ask as those tend to be my second favorite. After heavy nukers like Annie.

Ashe is the only Skill shot champion im aware of atm.

Well, Ezreal would probably be first on the list, as pretty much all his abilities are some form of skill shot.
then, there is:
Amumu (bandage toss)
Anivia (ice-ball-stun-thing)
Ashe (big-arrow-of-doom/stun)
Blitzcrank (rocket-grab)
Dr. Mundo (Infected Cleaver)
Janna (tornado thingy)
Morgana (Dark Binding)
Nidalee (Javalin-that-hurts-more-further-away)
Olaf (axe-throw-of-annoyance)
Siver (giant spinning boomerang of **** it's coming back!)
Twisted Fate (throwing 3 cards and missing with 2)

Then we have the 'skill shots' that are "choose an AOE and hope someone is standing there in 1-3 seconds when it lands", but that's another 1/3 of the champion list. I think most champions have some form of skill shot, or skill reliant ability, but I think the ones listed above fit the more precise meaning of the term.

I can't compare to DotA, I never played it.

Anivia is a pretty strong skill shot champion. She does not spam her skills as much as other champions so its all about positioning and landing that stun. Excelent team player, powerful caster AND good anti caster And good anti melee. Ranged dpsers like ashe or tristana can be a pain though since they will not go near you knowing you can burst them in half a second.

Ezrael has the most skillshots, as pointed out above. If you're looking for Pudge, Blitzcrank is very similar; the only difference in his grab vs. pudge's is that blitzcrank's cannot grab people on the way back. He doesn't have a slow, but he does have a speed buff and a spammable knockup.

Also Karthus first skill (Q) named Lay waste is pretty spammable, and is sort of a skill shot (that you place on the ground and doesn't move).

Karthus' Q is a different type of skill shot; it's a delayed target ground (or however you want to label it) ability. Others are Swain's snare, Cho'Gath's knockup, Cassiopeia's Q (similar to Karthus', slightly longer cd, but poisons instead of direct damage), Veigar's meteor, Brand's Pillar and I'm sure there are others I'm leaving out.

I was going to ask where Lux was after the initial response then I saw her in a reply. She is highly dependent in skill shots.

But the bigger concern, at least to me, is which "skillshot" champs have been given unfortunate animations and/or limited range such that most competent champs will dodge a large percentage of skillshots meant fir them.

Tier 1:
Ezreal.
Tier 2:
Ezreal.
Tier 3:
Ezreal.
Tier 4:
Everything else.

Sorry to sound troll-ish, but the truth is, Ezreal is pretty much a skillshot based champion with a high risk, high reward type of play. And. He's. Just. All. Skillshots. Period. There is no and or but.
