Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Welcome fellow Sejuani players! My first guide ever so troll and criticize all ya want for I just don't give a @!*#. Now all pleasantries aside theres one thing I must explain about this here guide. I understand Sejuani truly shines as a jungler and has amazing gankin' skills I myself have tried Rezpite's guide on Jungle Sej (Found here.) , but alas jungling is not for me :'( and ganking for all its lulz is just not alluring enough for me to jungle. So if you haven't already realized from reading the title (Which I understand isn't as self-explanatory as I make it sound it seem.) this is a Sejuani guide for laning purposes only! If your looking for jungling and ganking lulz go to Rezpite's Jungling Sejuani guide which is very well done. (Again found here.) So lets get a crackin' to the wonderful world of Sejuani the Winter's Wrath!
Pros / Cons
Slows your enemies like a boss.
Initiates like a boss.
Stuns like a boss.
Tanks like a boss.
Helps get your carry first blood like a boss.
Kites quite well with Q.
Rides a boar LIKE A BOSS!!!
She don't dish out enough pain :'(
Meant to die as the tank and we all know dying IS a con :'(
This builds just a tad bit expensive so...try your best??
And I'm pretty sure there are more cons, but I just can't think of any so (RESERVED)
With runes I go ArmP x9, Flat Armor Seals x9, CDR glyphs x9, and Quints of Swiftness x3.
ArmP cause you'll be hitting people alot so your passive snares them down as well as being standard even for tanks...I think.
Flat Armor Seals cause thats standard for tanks (this I know fo' sho').
CDR glyphs for low CD'S so its faster to keep all the haters permafrosted.
Quints of Swiftness so you can keep on your enemies toes and chase anybody down who believes they have a chance in winters hell in running away from you.
Now this is just how I like my runes. If you'd rather have the MR glyphs hey more power to ya. Why not attack speed runes? Cause we be lanin' not junglin'. Quints are open to more suggestions, but as far as my puny knowledge extends these are the most viable. Everything else I believe is fine. Now onto the next section!
For masteries I take 1/21/8. 1 for the exhaust 21 cause your a tank and 8 for flash, more mana for your awesome skills and moar movement speed. I won't go into any more deets, but if you have more questions involving masteries go ahead and comment down below and I shall try my best to answer you.
As I said in the cons this builds a tad bit expensive so if you have any cheaper ways and still be able to get nearly the same results please help me out and I will thank you and send a cookie through my highly advanced asian compooter.
Regrowth Pendant + Health pot --> Philosopher's Stone --> Boots of Speed --> Phage --> Mercury's Treads --> Sheen --> Shurelya's Reverie --> Giant's Belt --> Glacial Shroud --> Trinity Force --> Warmog's --> Frozen Heart.
The items in bold can be chosen in whichever order it deems fit to you. Need more HP and not enough gold for Shurelya's? Get Giants. Need more CD after Shuralya's and not more HP? Get Glacial Shroud. You get the point get whichever whenever when the need arises.
Yeah I apologize readers of my guide I've left out MR and for a tank the magic resist on this build is simply just not enough so I'll be testing out some other build pathways and I'll be coming back to you soon. Until then please just wait. Again I apologize for this novice mistake.
First point goes into Permafrost. Why? Cause this is whats gonna enable you to give either you or your carry first blood 95% of the time. I'll explain this in detail more later for right now lets continue on with skills. second point put it in Arctic Assault so Permafrosting more than one enemy simultaneously is possible. Next put in Northern winds so you have three synchronizing skills at your disposal by lvl 3. After level 3 max Permafrost first then Northern Winds followed up by Arctic Assault as well as putting points into your R at 6,11,and 16.
Not much to say here except Exhaust is more cc in your already amazing repertoire of cc's as well as flash being excellent in emergencies when your Q is down. I can't say i find any other summoner spells viable with this build as your meant to be the crippling tank.
Laning and what to do for FB.
Getting first blood with Sejuani is amazingly easy. Basically what you do is let them push first tower hug with your laning partner target the enemy carry autoattack the carry (make sure that your partner is too) E and have your carry ignite the carrys butt BAM FB should be your carry's for the taking. You don't always have to let them push first but its just easier for you to achieve FB since they can't run back to their tower as quickly. Even if they flash it wouldn't matter since ignite should finish them off. Mess around with this method and perfect your skill aiding your carry to grab FB. Now you can be greedy and try to get FB for yourself, but it'll be much harder pending on the enemy players skill. Besides its one of the tanks responsibilities to nurture your carry to supreme power.
Now after you help grab FB your job is to soak up damage cripple people with your amazing slows and initiate. More details only on request. Reason being as long as you keep to the points of crippling the enemy team tanking and initiating I don't see why i should show you how to play her when other methods may come easier to you. Do ya guys get me?
Hope you've enjoyed whatever there is to enjoy on this rinky dinky plain jane guide on Sejuani. I didn't write this guide out for recognition and all that stuff just thought I'd give people a different way of playing her besides jungling so I'll leave this guide in your hands people of mobafire. Peace deauce ya fools. :DD
