Not Updated For Current Season
Hello my name is Torvi and I'm playing on Eu nordic east. I don't have 30 lvl yet but so far i managed to find a nice and steady way to play with Sejuani and she instantly became my main. Im writing this guide because i found a way you can be a versatile liner with awesome ganking abilities. Or a quite good solo toper.
Why not jungling?
Why not jungling?
I play sejuani as an offtank and my main lane is bottom with adc/support or solo top. Why not jungler you may said, it's simply because jungling bores the hell of me and i just don't like it that's why im making this guide. Because I do believe there are more people like me but just they still don't know if Sejuani can do it and the answer is... OH YES BOY, SHE CAN DO IT.
Pros and Cons.
Big size = easier to catch ults that are aimed on someone, on you like Ace in the Hole and suchs.
Damage scaling on hp
Lots of slows and stuns
good mobility due to her Q - can dash trough almost every wall on map.
underplayed = rarely baned.
Early game problems with ad carrys.
very cooldown dependant.
kind of slow.
Way of meant to be played!
I like to be focused ~I'm tanker duh~ but no honestly, other than every tank i played so far i see sejuani really begin able to take lots of early game damage. My usual strategy to win on bottom with adc is to ignite a teamfight and get lots of dmg on me while adc spam damage on their squishest, when i have low (200-300) hp i run with flash or Q, but usually I don’t need to. Sejuani on very beginning can apply lots of aoe damage and slow due to her W and E that makes her a real threat for carries and once she hit 3rd lvl and can go with Q, oh well their adc are quite ****ed.
If you play with supporter, make sure its a good support because now you HAVE to be very agressive to save your lane and acquire some kills (sejuani other than all tanks need some early kills for early money) If your support is good, just lurk in bushes, make them come at least a little further than half of lane then ram their ***es. Q is great initial skill, knocks them up and stuns for knock duration, you can also activate your W while dashing with Q which gives instant damage, if you haven't reach 2 of them with Q, i strongly advice to go with activated W just to hit second guy and go back to your target, that way you can harass them both with your E as the second guy have applied slow on him, guy who was just a little poked never except that additional boom from your E, thats your weapon, you must be scarry as ****. I actually used that strategy, although i haven’t had good support, it was sona but guy was a newbie, we actually outplayed garen and lee sin with my strategy.
If you play with supporter but enemy team is very good, well then just play defensively almost like you would play solo top because sejuani is somewhat dmg poor she needs a very good support or adc.
Explanation of items.
Why I don’t have Rod of Ages? Well i tested it on very first games, it sure gives lots of sustain but i preffer Spirit of the Ancient Golem in this place. Why? Spirit gives you basically all you really need, hp, cdr, REGENS and tenacity same as you would have on merc treads. Why I capsed regens? Because they are so important. They gives really good sustain, spirit is cheaper and basically gives much more due to this that RoA is not much of use in late game and spirit is.
Why Ionian Boots of Lucidity? They got cool down reduction which is very important for Sejuani, the more ults she can throw the more teamfights won. Other pick would be Mercury's Treads or Ninja Tabi but only if team is ap or ad oriented, for mixes i preffer cdr.
Liandry's Torment, this item shines, oh it does so! It just works so good with Sunfire Cape and Rylai's Crystal Scepter than no other item would, you get steady burn damage, magic penetration, health and ap, what you would wish for more?! THIS IS A MUST HAVE item for me.
Why Rylai's Crystal Scepter? and why it isn't viable now. As I've played many games i recognized that rylai dont apply slow on burn damage of sunfire cape but it's still good item as it comes to stats. Hp and ap does good but also i find that it could be exchanged to omhwrecker that gives AP, Hp, additional regens and Turns off turret for 2,5 sec making dives lots easier and safer.
Sunfire Cape burns enemies that are close to you yes? Yes, rylai applies slow to this burn, making it even more useful as enemy cant really run. Now here comes liandry and hers burn damage which is DOUBLED when enemy is slower so basically these 3 items lets you damage them... without even attacking them you just need to come close so they start loose their hp, these items are great for sejuani and i call them one of best items so far that sejuani should have.
Spirit Visage is a good tanking item and i think it works even better than warmong, or you could have them both but i dont see what item i could exchange, probably boots only. Still spirit visage gives 200 hp, 20 cdr, 50 mr and empowers your healing which means your heal is stronger also and that does SOMETHING in hard teamfights. Therefore i think it's better to have it than warmong.
armor runes are obvious and so are magic resist runes.
hp quints are also obvious if you come by this far, they give (obviously) hp and some damage to W
scaling hp quint gives a little more hp in the late game.
magic penetration runes are also pretty obvious pick.
