SKARNER SPELLS

  • Crystal Spires
    Crystal Spires

    Skarner's presence causes crystals to spawn in set locations around the map. Crystals can be captured by either team by standing close to them. When near crystals his team owns, Skarner gains movement speed, attack speed, and increased mana regeneration.

  • Crystal Slash
    Crystal Slash
    • Cost: 10 {{ abilityresourcename }}
    • Range: 350

    Skarner lashes out with his claws, dealing physical damage to all nearby enemies and charging himself with Crystal Energy for several seconds if a unit is struck. If he casts Crystal Slash again while powered by Crystal Energy, he deals bonus magic damage.

    Skarner slashes wildly, causing all nearby enemies to take physical damage equal to {{ qbadratiotooltip }} plus {{ qbonusdamage }}% of their maximum health. If a unit is struck, he charges himself with energy for 5 seconds, causing Crystal Slash to strike twice and deal 100% (+{{ qapratiotooltip }}) additional magic damage. Basic attacks against non-structures lower Crystal Slash's cooldown by 0.25 seconds (quadrupled against champions).

  • Crystalline Exoskeleton
    Crystalline Exoskeleton
    • Cost: 60 {{ abilityresourcename }}
    • Range: 1

    Skarner gains a shield and has increased Movement Speed while the shield persists.

    Skarner is shielded for 0 (10/11/12/13/14% of his maximum health) (+80% 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.

  • Fracture
    Fracture
    • Cost: 55 {{ abilityresourcename }}

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

  • Impale
    Impale
    • Cost: 100 {{ abilityresourcename }}
    • Range: 350

Skarner Enemy Tips

  • 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.

SKARNER LORE

Skarner is an immense crystalline scorpion from a hidden valley in Shurima. Part of the ancient Brackern race, Skarner and his kin are known for their great wisdom and deep connection to the land, as their souls are fused with powerful life crystals which hold the living thoughts and memories of their ancestors. In an age long past, the Brackern entered hibernation to avoid untold magical destruction, but recent, threatening events have roused Skarner. As the only Brackern awake, he strives to protect his kind from those who seek to harm them.
