Guide to Synergizing Vel'Koz and Skarner

Tips for Playing as Vel'Koz with Skarner

Be very careful about when to use Life Form Disintegration Ray. Many champions have abilities that can interrupt the spell.

When laning, use Void Rift to kill minions while building stacks of Organic Deconstruction on your opponent. You can then follow up with your other abilities.

Shooting Plasma Fission diagonally and splitting at maximum range allows you to hit opponents that are out of the range of the initial missile, but is more challenging to pull off.

Advice to Understand How Skarner Will Play

Capturing Crystal Spires before attempting neutral objectives or team fights around them improves Skarner's performance in said fights dramatically.

Basic attacks reduce the cooldown of Crystal Slash. Use them as often as possible for maximum damage.

Impale is extremely powerful when you use it to position an enemy so your allies can attack them.
