Skarner's blue dependence is now solved by Spirit Stone + Philo.
correct, skarner can now free farm forever.
I tried gold quints and 2 gold mastery with rest in defense and cleared just fine with machete 5 pot start. upgrade for aoe dmg and get philo. Just build pure tank as before and let the machete upgrades clear for you.
At the current state of the jungle and skarner taking the farm route and just clearing till lvl 6 before ganks is best imo. come out and ult kill go back to farming till your ult is up. You will be as strong as if you had a solo lane. --- I don't always lose, but when I do it's purple sideu!!!
Once you finish your Iceborn Gauntlet, get a Twin Shadows.
That item is made for Skarner.
Well gee, a 40% 4 second ranged slow on Skarner?
Its essentially a guaranteed R and a team fight, or you kill the target and gain the advantage. --- Actually, since Wedge Antilles > Carriers, and Carriers = Instant win, then it should be Wedge Antilles > Instant win. He's just that good XD -PsionicDude
