Not Updated For Current Season
Greetings fellow Freljorders!
My name is Lyxodius and I've been playing Sejuani since her release.
She is my favourite champ and I keep carrying games with her, and today
I'm going to show you how!
Preseason 5 is here, and a lot of things changed!
I played every day and gathered all the experience you need to be successful!
New jungle is tough! Be prepared!
Okay this has been a tough one to figure out. Everyone is so fixated on buffs, but season 5 works differently!
Make your team ward your buffs with their trinkets at around 1:20.
Start at the Krugs! That's where the golems were before.
Smite them immediately to get their buff ("Heavy Hands"),
this buff proved to be the best one to start.
A laner should help you with this.
Now head for those nasty birds and give them a sound thrash.
I'm talking about the place where wraiths were before.
Now it's the time for RED BUFF!
"But Lyxodius, Blue Buff is better for Sejuani!"
You won't have mana issues til this point,
trust me, stranger!
You need that health though.
Smiting the red buff will restore a good chunk of health.
Time to kill those wolves!
After that, just go back and get your Trailblazer and pots.
Don't think about buying other stuff, the Trailblazer is just ******* awesome!
I tried all those jungle items, but this one is really what you want.
Now kill the big frog, smite it somewhere in the midst of the fight to get health from Trailblazer and to use the stun effectively. Now kill blue buff.
After this, you're free to do whatever you want!
Maybe gank, counter jungle, or continue with your own jungle.
Another good thing about this route is: The enemy jungler will never expect those timings on your buffs, especially blue buff!
Okay look, the biggest mistake people tend to do nowadays is to start at the buffs and to finish the jungle item first. Don't do that! Finishing the jungle item really isn't worth it. You should better get your core items.
Now, the boots of mobility plus runes and masteries give you really good movement speed. Use it! Help your lanes, always look at the map and go to places.
Someone near you is in danger while you are doing jungle camps? Run there, forget about the camp! But only if it's not suicide of course.
I'm seeing a lot of people just finishing their camp first, that's a very bad idea in most cases.
Keep your vision and awareness (!) on Dragon and Baron up, that's very vital! That's your job as a jungler!
If you kill some guys, head immediately for one of those two if they're up and you got your smite. If the enemy jungler is around and you got no smite, ping your team back. But the Trailblazer usually does a good job in making your smite available. That's one reason why you want to get it above other jungle items! The other reason is the sustain, sustain has become such an issue in S5 Jungle.
Now, with that in mind, become unstoppable!
Become a huge tank that their team needs to be afraid of!
Stand in front of your teammates, look out for good times to engage, be the shield of your team.
Use your cc to protect your carries or to chase enemy ones.
It is very important to understand when it is better to do which one of those.
Sometimes protecting is better, sometimes is chasing is better. Learn that, it will improve your game a lot!
And don't forget: If your team kills an enemy champion, NEVER GO INTO THE JUNGLE, get an objective. Getting enemy buff IS an objective, sometimes it's ok to do that, but most of the time you will want to get a tower or an epic monster.
Another thing: Get back if you're low. It's no use trying to get an objective if enemy Katarina can Pentakill your team. Watch their death timers and go back if you would lose a fight, don't get greedy.
Always know when it's time to go back. That makes comebacks for enemy team very hard.
I guess that covers the most important things!
Ward, ward, ward!
Thanks for reading my guide, I hope it will help you to carry!
