Guide to Countering Skarner

  • Your team needs to coordinate stuns and disables when Skarner tries to go on a gank on your carry.
  • A mobile and tanky Skarner counters any single carry. If your team is built around 1 scaling carry, you may find it hard to compete. Unless you have enough CC or mobility, he will easily pluck out your carry and bring them to his teammates for execution. Slow is effective at preventing Skarner from reaching your carry or from pulling him all the way back to his team.
