Skarner Diamond Scorpion has a super annoying combo and has super resistance, but it is very rare for LoL players to use him to climb the ranks.
In spite of Skarner is a champion with a special playstyle, but his pick rate is always at the ‘bottom of society’, which has caused a lot of controversy in the League of Legends community. Therefore, in the list of champions voted to remake in 2023, Skarner is the face with the highest number of votes.
So why not use this champion in solo queue matches and also in the professional arena, let’s find out why in the article below!
Skarner relies heavily on passives
If in your game there are Skarner, then surely you will be no stranger to his Crystal Towers scattered across the map. One in Dragon, one in Baron, one in Red and one in Blue. These towers can be activated by Skarner, as well as by his teammates.
If Skarner is in an active tower, he gains movement speed, attack speed, and mana regeneration. This is great for clearing the Jungle from early levels, as Scorpio can easily finish off enemies and gank easily. Only when in his area does Skarner have a chance to outperform others.

The towers can increase the crazy power for Skarner, but also his weak point. Sure, he gains powerful target control when the spire is active, but since his strength depends on the spiers, without them Skarner would of course become extremely weak.
To Skarner If he can thrive, he will have to rely heavily on his teammates to be able to control the towers on the nearby Forest side, where he is not present. This commitment doesn’t always happen smoothly in solo queue, where all teammates are random.
Skarner’s stats are pretty weak
As mentioned above, Skarner will have a lot of disadvantages at the beginning of the game if there is no passive. Riot only makes Skarner equal to the enemy based on his towers, which is quite unfair to this scorpion. Meaning that without the Crystal Towers, he would be much weaker than the enemy Forest.
This makes it extremely easy for the enemy to surpass Skarner, just taking over the tower can destroy his martial arts. And just like that, Skarner will roll himself to waste.
Skarner has only one strong skill, the rest are too ‘chief’
The only thing that makes this champion’s brand, and what makes him interact with teammates better, is the ultimate. Honestly, .’s ultimate Skarner quite strong, it helped Skarner get his place in season 10.
But sadly, this is the only skill that helps Skarner become powerful in Summoner’s Rift. However, this weapon did not last long, but right in season 10 Riot conducted nerfing it. The only skill that can be used is also nerfed, making the fate of Skarner since then it has also become gloomy.
Hopefully Riot will fix up the gameplay for Diamond Scorpion in the new season, doing something to reduce his reliance on towers on the passive. Skarner’s rework is expected to be released next year. So let’s hope that Riot will improve him to the name of a Shurima scorpion.
