Tips Against Skarner in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Narutoe says “As any other tank, you wont be able to quickly kill him so dont bother, better buy QQS as he might focus you with the ult.”

Tchouvline says “One of the worst matchups for Fiddlesticks, avoid picking Fiddle if you see a Skarner on the enemy team. ”

colingogo says “Does anyone even play this champion? You get to freefarm into him and as long as you buy Quicksilver Sash, he's useless.”

FalleN3 says “QSS can be a solid pick-up against Skarner, just use it whenever he ultis you. He shouldn't be an issue in your side of the jungle for the early levels and afer level 6 you should have no problem taking him down. Try to get ahead of him early and pick up some kills. If he buys thornmail, botRK can go a long way to providing the damage and sustain you need to kill him.”

EUWRATS says “Super strong pick against hecarim due to being able to R him out of ult and drag him into enemy team”

Holessando says “You won't probably see this champion vs you ever, since almost noone plays him, but if he's vs you, he can possibly kill you, but its nothing horrible, Skarner isn't that hard matchup, he is not good in late game, so you should win the game.”
[10.21] HOLESSANDO's ULTIMATE EKKO JG GUIDE by Holessando | Ekko Player
Rhoku says “Skarner can be very disruptive in teamfights and 2v2s due to his ultimate. He can isolate you very well and put you in a position where his team can destroy you. Fortunately, he is very weak when he is to himself. Just don't let him take crystals for free and just beat his head in if he tries to take crab or any objective from you. Pre-6 he is free.”
KamiKZ says “Skarner can be real trouble for you as he has one of the most efficient clear times for junglers and his early gank pressure can be insane. Add that to having a game-changing ultimate that can easily punish you or an ally who´s mispositioned and you´ll be regretting not shutting him down early. Skarner can be abused early game 1v1 scenarios if he misses his stun on you but be mindful when fighting in his spire zones. We suggest that you build a QSS if you´re being focused, or pick up an Edge of Night as a situational item instead.”
ak521 says “Not a huge threat, weak ganks, weak jungle clear, but his R is really good and his E is pretty good, too. Not much of a problem to "outplay" in that fact, he's quite immobile and it will be hard for him to get to your ADC. Your ADC should handle him.”

Tips Against Skarner in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Sovereign Kitten says “Skarners recent buff has make him very difficult to deal with. If you end getting matched against him or in a game, you have to realize that each one of his capture points around the map that he acquires grants him a very large amount of attack speed and movement speed while near them to get around the map faster, especially if he has predator. You'll want to try to capture some of those points every now an again, which will grant you a little bit of gold and remove it from his passive for 15 seconds until he recaptures them. They play him TOP and JNG. You really don't win any fights once he hits level 6, due to having too much lock down.”

ERNESTSAURUS says “CONQUEROR / FLEET FOOTWORK SETUP - DORANS SHIELD / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT = Skarner is one of those forgotten picks that nowadays even with the recent buffs, only One Trick players will play him since its such a niche pick. In laning phase Skarner will try to engage on you really hard so he will usually push the wave in your side of the lane. Once you hit lvl 6 and Sheen power spike you can kill him easily with Ghost but be really careful whenever you are close to his turret, since he can just R you into his turret, then hit you with the E stun and you are dead, you can't survive that, for preventing this, set up the wave on your side of the lane and look for extended trades not 100-0 dives since he can flip those once you start getting close to his torret disengage to prevent him from using R on you, also when doing extended Trades look to trade whenever he wastes his E since its one of the only abilities that will stop you from running him down. Once you get 2-3 items you already outscaled him and you should look to do teamfights since his teamfighting sucks due that he can't really R the backline so he will usually R you but your team will be there to punish him for that, Splitpushing will allow him to perma CC you and burst you so with the help of your team, you can prevent him from doing that.”

Drake6401 says “Avoid standing near his tower if the wave is pushed in. He can drag you under it with his ultimate and stun you there for an easy kill.”

Pathetic Singed says “Who? Skarner struggles to catch up with you and if he R's you in a teamfight it only takes the pressure off the backline.”

Defensivity1 says “Very weak 1v1 but great gank setup, be carefull to not get flash ult ignited under his tower because you may die to that. Overall he should be easy to kill 1v1 but i would recommend going triforce before sanguine because its safer as he has very good gank setup.”

Do1HaveTh3Sauce says “Skarner isn't a good jungler for a reason. All you have to do is hit him with your spears and dive when you think is good. Your ganking is significantly better and you have more mobility.”

EntxRecoil says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start. What you wanna watch out for when dueling skarner top lane is his E. If you get hit by his E you get slowed down and his first auto on you will stun you and grant him bonus attack speed. If you are able to dodge his E or he wastes it on minions that is when you want to trade. Skarner can get pretty tanky and deal a good amount of damage with conqueror + trinity force however Tryndamere has more out of combat mobility as well better farm and waveclear. Make sure to take control of his spires in areas that you are potentially gonna fight him (and the free 15g at the beginning of the game by taking a spire.) In the mid-late game splitpush look to catch out skarner away from his turret, or buy a QSS so you can dive him. Merc Treads are VERY good in this matchup because of his CC that is very easy to hit. Also if the skarner builds a lot of cdr be very careful trading with him close to his turret, he can E then pull you under turret, auto attack to stun you then e and auto attack to stun you again for a 4.5 second CC chain (that + turret dmg = u dead)”

Darrkescru says “Isto e meio que especificamente contra o Atemon, usa o impeto , não tenta matar ele que este bicho e BACANA, ele geralmente não vai conseguir te dar dano antes do lvl 6 mas depois disto tudo que ele vai fazer e ficar procurando uma oportunidade para te pushar para baixo da torre, farma safe e faz ele perder farm que late você ganha (use tempestade crescente)”
