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

checca says “Skarner can be a real threat if his ultimate pulls you into the midst of 4 enemies that can do more damage. I haven't played against Skarner much, so I can't really say how strong he is against Zac, but I can say that after level 11, Zac becomes stronger than Skarner. Also, Skarner is one of the few champions where the team composition matters more than what he picks; meaning, his ultimate is only good if it's pulling you in and killing you.”

Heca diffs says “[12.23] Skarner is tough. He beats you early game If he hits his e. And in late game teamfights he can disable you for about 5 seconds if he lands his e as well. Try to wait for him to ult one of your teammates, so you don't suffer getting instantly killed”
Bhyure33 says “So rare to face him that I can barely even remember what is it like to play against him. But from what I remember is that he isn't that big of an issue, and you beat him in 1v1s unless he somehow becomes fed. Be aware that he can use his R to for example force you under their turrets.”

RedNBlue says “A 4-ish, Skarner can be annoying when it comes to him pulling you around and then his team taking out your back line when you can block for them. Have a support peel champion, top lane peel will probably mean your team is a bit too tanky. ”

MythicalMinute says “Skarner is good in the right hands but overall any build will be fine into him, just spam gank and force teamfights, if he is always going for you, try to ult as he ults, it'll put his ult on cooldown. Any build is fine here.”
[12.19] D1 Shaco OTP Guide by MythicalMinute | Shaco Player
spuki97 says “Not a hard matchup. Just make sure not to fight in his passive zones and be careful not to get ulted when his team is around. Best build: Bruiser/Chinese Strat”
PiscesPomf says “Pretty bad champ right now, even if he's fast he deals no damages so it's not a problem.”
Agzer says “Run goredrinker, the black cleaver,s and serylda, counter gank as much as you can and invade him before level 6.”
Kao_Oak says “Careful with his R because it might f*ck you up. Try to dodge his E with Q so you don't get stunned. easy 1v1”

RengarNBush says “He is unkillable later, his R can be cleansed but he still has his E stuns. You can ignore him to an extent, his cc becomes annoying to play into. He is an excellent peeler, jumping when he is next to his carries leads to certain death if you can't oneshot on jump.”

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

lorensj81 says “Very rarely played as a laner, he is quite easy to win against, but be careful after 6 so he don't drag you under his tower without minions so you take tower aggro and dies.”
Azekar says “Conqueror+Bone Plating. Start with Doran Ring. Ignite+Teleport. Hey Merthos. Just kill him and that's it. Very easy matchup, just watch out for his R so he doesn't pull you under the turret and kill you under it. (Skarner can cast a 5 second CC, that's a hell of a long time.)”
V1kt0r555 says “[Summoner Spell: Ignite or Teleport] [Starting Item: Doran's Ring] [Free lane] [Be careful if you are going to kill him near his tower as he can suppress you with his R]”

Dekar173 says “P: Q: 3.5 > 2.5 (AoE damage) W: 13 > 11 (Shield + Movespeed) E: 14 > 12 (-1.25 per stun proc) R: 120 > 80 (Hook ult thing) Runes vs Skarner: HIGH Econ: MID Econ: LOW Econ: Strengths: Weaknesses: Notes: ”
kajinator says “Conqueror and Flash + Ignite. Extremely weak tank. You should be able to beat him easily at all points in the game and perma zone him off CS/XP.”

DixonTheGuideMaker says “Try to delay Skarner’s level 6 power spike by invading his jungle and stealing away his camps if he shows on one side of the map. Skarner’s biggest power spike in the early game is once he gets his Ultimate Impale(R), so he will be power farming for this. Place vision around his jungle entrances to make it harder for Skarner to get ganks off. Ping your team as soon as he leaves his jungle and be prepared to counter gank if you’re nearby .Skarner has good Dragon and objective control in the early game. Make sure you keep the objectives warded so you can spot him before he is able to take them for free.”

Kandrashun 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.”
Kindred Jg Build by Kandrashun | Kindred Player
NegativePhoenix says “Heavily team reliant and with tenacity you shouldn't have much issue against CC like his ult.”
CosmicTurtle88 says “Only one-tricks play this so they'll know there champion well, but there's nothing he can really do into you 1v1. He lacks the damage and tankiness to fight you so the ONLY threat is being pulled into his tower, avoid that and it's unplayable for him. Watch out for jungle ganks post-6 too. ”
Nino_euw says “get mercs and wait for your items, botrk and kraken.”

AnxialSociety says “Never fight on top of him, or let him flash ult you. He wins by getting on you for his team, or near tower. It always lasts longer than you think. Build boots early to not get run down. Otherwise you punish him early for being melee, and by poking his team out in fights since they have no mage. Build against their main damage/jg.”

FnafLover87 says “Pls nerf skarner he is a cancer to play against. I do not want to get touched by someone whose entire species got turned into a hoverboard. Actually I would like to become Seraphine's hoverboard I think it would be hot. ”
ThePieBeam says “Honestly I have no clue. Nobody plays Skarner and this champ can't lane. The (admittedly very bad) Skarner players I've seen couldn't touch me though so just do some classic Anivia gaming on them and it should be an easy matchup.”
