Comprehensive Overview of Skarner's Updated Capabilities

Intrinsic Trait: Vibrational Echoes

Skarner’s basic attacks and certain abilities mark his adversaries with a resonant effect. Accumulating three of these resonance marks on enemies triggers additional percent max HP damage over a duration.

Primary Skill: Rupture and Flare

With his foundational skill, Skarner extracts a boulder from the terra firma, augmenting his ensuing three strikes to inflict augmented damage, expanded reach, and enhanced attack rhythm. The culmination of this trinity of hits launches the boulder at a chosen foe, diminishing their speed and inflicting extra harm.

  • Second Activation: Skillful re-use of this ability hurls the boulder in a linear path, exploding upon the first rival it strikes to mirror the damage and deceleration effects of the final auto-attack.

Defensive Stance: Tremor Guard

This protective maneuver erects a barrier around Skarner and propels him into a forceful ground pound, discharging a damaging shockwave to slow adversaries in close proximity.

  • Effect: Personal shield creation
  • Consequence: Shockwave causes damage and deceleration to nearby enemies

Mobility Attack: Ixtali Ambush

Skarner lunges forth, defying physical barriers, and seizes upon the initial opponent champion or sizable creature in his path.

  • Result: Short range transport of the captured target
  • Terrain Interaction: Stuns and harms upon collision with the environment

Ultimate Move: Apex Predator’s Grasp

In a display of predatory dominance, Skarner can latch onto a maximum of three enemy champions within reach, dealing damage and enforcing a suppressive state.

  • Supplementary Speed: Temporary acceleration enables him to traverse the battleground with his targets in tow.
  • Limitations: Skarner's ability to initiate other attacks or flashes is restricted during this ultimate maneuver.
