League of Legends New Champion Skarner

August 10, 2011, By Nicholas Davis

The newest addition to wildly popular League of Legends is gaining another new champion to their roster. This time it’s Skarner, the Crystal Vanguard. A crystallized scorpion that is great for jungling and aggressive gameplay.

Ability Descriptions:

Energize (Passive): Basic attacks lower the cooldowns of Skarner’s abilities by 1 second against champions and 0.5 seconds against non-champions.

Crystal Slash: Skarner lashes out with his claws, dealing physical damage to all nearby enemies and charging himself with Crystal Energy for several seconds. If he casts Crystal Slash again while empowered by Crystal Energy, he deals bonus magic damage and slows all targets hit.

Crystalline Exoskeleton: Skarner gains a shield and while the shield persists his movement speed and attack speed are both increased.

Fracture: Skarner summons a blast of crystalline energy which deals damage to enemies struck and marks them. Any further damage dealt to marked targets by Skarner will allow him to consume the mark to heal himself.

Impale (Ultimate): Skarner suppresses an enemy champion and deals magic damage to it. During this time, skarner can move freely and will drag his helpless victim around with him. When the effect ends, Skarner’s target will be dealt additional damage.

If you’re a relatively new user to League of Legends, Skarner might be a good way to harness your micro management skills. Watch the video below to get a good sense of how to properly use Skarner.
