Quick tips to play Skarner

Make sure you farm as much as you can in the early game. Hitting level 6 quickly will increase your kill pressure as Skarner relies heavily on his Ultimate

SkarnerImpaleR

.

In team fights, use your Ultimate

SkarnerImpaleR

on key targets that do not have QSS. Do not use it on champions who have QSS.

Avoid team fighting unless your Ultimate

SkarnerImpaleR

is up as you’re somewhat limited to what you can achieve while it’s on cooldown.
