You can spam in teamfights, just don't spam Q too much in the jungle?


I don't want to say much cuz I'm still testing builds, but all I'm saying is try different stuff out

Hm, maybe instead of selling my spirit stone/machete halfway through the game I may be able to actually build something useful!

I don't use his E on camps even when I have blue..... With Feral Flare, you can clear camps much faster, so you don't need to spam your abilities as much. It also makes him stronger in fights. TBH, you don't need to stay in the jungle forever, you only need to get through a clear or 2 with a gank in between. If you don't spam your W and E (which you don't need to do thanks to the sustain from FF), Skarner has easily enough mana to accomplish this.

I've been playing a lot of Skarner recently and I honestly think he's great. I admittedly didn't play him very often before the re-work so if he is in fact "worse" I don't see it. I have a lot of fun with Skarner and I feel like he's a really good jungler, who is in all honestly a niche' pick vs teams that know what's up, but I still feel like Riot did this one right.

Good work Riot, keep it up! ^^

it would totally fix scarner for me if you made the shield and move speed buff on w non dependant on each other so you get the sheild and a ramping move buff. what it feels like now is you either rush in with your shield and once it breaks your dead in the water or you try to escape with it and it gets broken so you lose the buff. IT FEELS BAD.
