Skarner ability - Crystal Spires

Skarner's presence causes crystals to spawn in set locations around the map. While near crystals his team owns, Skarner gains tremendous movement speed, attack speed, and mana regeneration.

Skarner ability - Crystal Slash

Cooldown: 3.5/3.25/3/2.75/2.5Cost: 15 manaRange: 350

Skarner slashes wildly, causing all nearby enemies to take physical damage equal to 33/36/39/42/45 plus 1/1.5/2/2.5/3% of their maximum health. If a unit is struck, he charges himself with energy for 4 seconds, causing Crystal Slash to strike twice and deal 100% (+30% bonus Ability Power) additional magic damage.

Basic attacks against non-structures lower Crystal Slash's cooldown by 0.25 seconds (quadrupled against champions).

Skarner ability - Crystalline Exoskeleton

Cooldown: 13/12.5/12/11.5/11Cost: 60 manaRange: 1

Skarner is shielded for 10/11/12/13/14% of maximum Health (+80% bonus Ability Power) damage for 6 seconds. While the shield persists, Skarner gains movement speed that ramps up to 16/20/24/28/32% over 3 seconds.

Skarner ability - Fracture

Cooldown: 14/13.5/13/12.5/12Cost: 55 manaRange: 980

Passive: Crystallizing enemies with Fracture and Impale grants Crystal Charge for the disable duration and reduces the cooldown of Fracture by the same amount.

Active: Skarner summons a blast of crystalline energy, dealing 40/65/90/115/140 (+20% bonus Ability Power) magic damage, slowing targets hit by 30/35/40/45/50% for 2.5.

Enemies hit by Fracture are afflicted with Crystal Venom for 5 seconds, causing Skarner's next basic attack against them to deal 30/50/70/90/110 additional physical damage and stun the target for 1.25 second.

Skarner ability - Impale

Cooldown: 120/100/80Cost: 100 manaRange: 350

Skarner suppresses an enemy champion for 1.75 seconds, dealing 60% Attack Damage physical damage plus 20/60/100 (+50% bonus Ability Power) magic damage. Skarner can move freely during this time, and will drag his helpless victim around with him. When the effect ends, Skarner's target will be dealt the same damage again.

General Tips

General Tips Playing as Skarner

  • Basic attacks reduce the cooldown of Crystal Slash. Use them as often as possible for maximum damage.
  • Capturing Crystal Spires before attempting neutral objectives or team fights around them improves Skarner's performance in said fights dramatically.
  • Impale is extremely powerful when you use it to position an enemy so your allies can attack them.

General Tips Playing against Skarner

  • Skarner can't harm you very much outside of short range, so stay away from him!
  • Skarner's Movement Speed is increased as long as his shield, Crystalline Exoskeleton, persists. Attack him to lower his speed.
  • Skarner is especially dangerous when inside Crystal Spire zones his team controls. Try to capture them ahead of time if a fight may break out around them.
