Now normally in S2, I would build Mercs or Tabi on Skarner, for mostly obvious reason. With the introduction of the Spirit of the Ancient Golem, however, Skarner can get his Tenacity from a different source, opening up new options for boots on him.
This started me thinking about getting Boots of Swiftness on him. Since Skarner needs to move quickly for his initiation, the extra movespeed could come in handy, but what really made me wonder is the Slow Resist passive. Combined with 21 in the defence tree, this reduces the effectiveness of slows to 60% (63.75% if they stack multiplicatively instead of additively), which could make quite the difference in terms of his initiation.
Really, what I'm asking is how viable would the news Boots of Swiftness be on Skarner? Would the Slow Resist make them a viable choice, or is the Armour / MR from Tabi / Treads too good to pass up?
