Is Skarner viable anywhere besides jungle?

I want to use skarner, but I don't want to be *****ed at by my teammates or cause endless dodges if he's not really usable anywhere else.

can be a good top sometimes.

I don't see how he's good top. His abilities are designed for ganking: his permaslow, his shield's movement speed bonus, and his ultimate. No reason to use him in any other role than jungler.

Before the updates he was amazing at turtling top. And just top in general.

Haven't seen one since the patch yet though.
History is only as accurate as the Author of the Book.

Yeah, he's a perfect jungler. His initiation is solo queue proof too.

He can do well in a lane if you can solve his early game mana issue.
Are girls something with ".jpg" at the end of their name?
