Skarner, RQWE or RQEW?

For Skarner, should I get the shield first? Or do I get fracture?

Maxing shield is more important (after you've maxed Q) - because it's not just a shield, it's a speed boost (i.e. better ganks) and an attack speed boost (i.e. better clears and better deeps)

Although for your first clear of the jungle you should go Q > E > Q > W - taking the E at level 2 lets you aggro things through the walls to shave about 5 seconds off your total clear time, it also keeps you healed as you can spam it if you start on blue.

skarners nowadays don't get E till 12

Jungle is Q > E > Q > W, then RQWE is the order to level in. E is only really good if you're laning, otherwise you want more points in W to gank and clear more effectively. Spamming E to heal is a good way to go OoM.
If you read this signature, then that meant that I had control of what you read for 5 SECONDS!!

^That. Skarner only needs 1 pt on E for jungling.

I don't bother with E at all. Ever.

I'll always take that one point in E early. Maybe it's not what the pros do, but I've gotten many kills that would have otherwise gotten away by firing an E as they were running.

And in lane, I prefer R>E>Q>W. E gives you sustain, a ranged poke, and you can use it to last hit from a distance if necessary.

Though other people probably know better than I. I always play Skarner as a jungler, and have racked up hundreds of games with him there, and have maybe...3 or 4 games with him played as solo top >.>

With the new jungle, Skarner doesn't need the point in E early at all. You go

Q - W - Q - W - Q - R - Q - W - Q - W - R - W - E - E - E- R - E - E

I get a point in E at level 2 or 3 if my leash sucked.
