I can see both being good buys on him, but I think most of the time I would still go fh for the extra armor (30) cdr (5) and it's aura. But I don't think it's a 100% buy on him anymore.

Just if someone forgot gauntlet's passive/doesn't know

Iceborn Gauntlet 3400g (640)
+40 Ability Power
+500 Mana
+60 Armor
+15% Cooldown Reduction

UNIQUE Passive - Spellblade: After using an ability, your next basic attack deals bonus physical damage equal to 125% of your base Attack Damage to surrounding enemies and creates a field for 3 seconds that slows enemies inside by 35% - 2 second cooldown.

Depends which ADC the enemy has. If he's big and dependant on AS, Frozen Heart will always be better.

Iceborn gauntlet is a snowbally item if you already are in the lead if you ask me. I helps the ganks a lot.

Wait, when it says deals 125% of base attack damage, does that mean it does NOT include any bonus ad?

Correct, like the guy above me said sheen and triforce dont take into account bonus damage either. Which is why its bad on champions like riven with low base damage. Skarner however can make great use of it as i believe he has one of the highest base damages in the game, as well as a spammy enough skillset to keep procs going constantly.

Why choose ? Iceborn Gauntlet is a choice to be made with TF not Frozen Heart.....

You'll probably go both on Skarner for an even better AoE perma slow due to Q/IBG proc stacking....

Sheen procs as a whole aren't that great for urgot due to terrible range.

I'd just go quad-cleaver for CDR/Arpen >.>

There's no situation where you need or want that much armor outside of ridiculous all-AD comps.
