Sejuani Build Guide by Consequentialism
Mastery Tree Is Outdated
WARNING: These masteries are still using the old tree and have not been updated to the new tree by the guide author. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Sejuani? What the ****?
Wow! You actually picked this champion? This champion is complete and utter ****! Yeah, such fail AP scalings, even Leona's are better than hers. Not even a single steroid for AD. I'm going to report you for trolling. Riot fail. Refund please.
If you think that is true then you are a noob. Sejuani is the best ganker in the entire game and is a beastly CC machine. Today we will build her tank to exploit her extreme CC even better! Hell, having this lady on your tail is like having chewing gum on your bellend, it sticks to you and it hurts to get it off.
And yeah, I rushed this guide because Sejuani is free this week and I don't wanna see no nooblords clowning around with her.
Pros / Cons
Let's talk runes.
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Quintessence of Health
9 of Greater Mark of Attack Damage
9 of Greater Seal of Armor
9 of Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
3 of Greater Quintessence of Health
9 Attack Damage
24 Magic Resistance@18
9 extra attack damage makes the entire jungle smoother, even though the Blessing of the Lizard Elder and Crest of the Ancient Golem has 20 armor, they're still effective due to their mediocre damage reduction. Armor for jungling and fulfills your main role as a tank. Magic resistance per level for...oh who I am kidding tanking of course! Your Northern Winds scales with HP, getting HP will give you significant advantage in event of a level 1 teamfight. Allows you to stay longer in the jungle as well. You can take movement speed if you want. Personal preferences only.
Wait. These runes cost a ****ing lot and not everyone has them.
If you can't buy the Movement speed or Health Quintessences I suggest a different matchup.
Greater Quintessence of Armor Penetration
Greater Mark of Attack Speed
Greater Mark of Armor Penetration
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Now you have 20 ARPen, golem & lizard will die faster. and 5.1% extra Attack Speed but you lose about 74 health.
Don't recommend MRPen marks because you're going to be squishy and miserable with that puny 9 MRPen.
Typical jungle tank settings. No explanation needed.
Yes, the item sequence is a pile of **** because you can't always expect teammates who aren't complete airheads and are intelligible as such. If done correctly you're going to be an immortal CC machine.
You don't always have to completely follow the build, different games calls for different needs. But this build is a BADASS all-around build and will dominate most games.
Builds for different situations
AP heavy teams
AD heavy teams
Your BRILLIANT Q ability.
Access jungle like a boss.
Baron crash like a boss.
Surprise gank like a boss.
Counter jungle like a boss.
You can do EVERYTHING with this Q ability.
Your exclusive Sunfire Cape that scales with HP and AP. That's what makes building Sejuani tanky an excellent choice. Slows your enemies while dealing crazy damage.
Your bread and butter. You rely on this ability to slow the **** out of your enemies in pre-level 6 ganks. Deals EXTREME damage to your enemies while slowing them for like, 70%.
Completely BADASS linear skillshot AOE stun, dealing TONS OF DAMAGE while rendering the enemy team completely useless. OP! Use it to gank, initiate, save a life, clean up enemies and close the gap while they are stunned.
I suggest you to save this ability early game as it has a long cooldown, and is useless if you miss. So make sure you can land it before you use it. Usually, unless your Flash is up, missing Glacial Prison fails a gank.
Northern Winds first because you're going to clear wolves first in an instant with some help from teammates. Then one point in Arctic Assault because time is money and it saves a lot of time walking around camps. One point in Permafrost to complete your combo for jungling.
Walk up to a camp, Arctic Assault into Northern Winds then Permafrost until the camp is dead.
After that, Ability priorities are Glacial Prison> Permafrost> Northern Winds> Arctic Assault. Always take ultimate at level 6, 11 and 16 or I will stick your eyes open while I rape your entire family with a white, hot and rusty iron fork.
You're a jungler.
Double gap closer for double success. Ain't nobody gonna get away from the INSANE CC.
Allows you to stick to your prey... Can't say no to that. But not as useful as Flash.
Let your support take this. Wait. You are a tank and you are most likely to be initiating, thus your teammates will be behind you, I suppose you can take this.
Completely counters Dr. Mundo. Trolololololo. Aside from that, let your carries take this.
Disables enemy AD Carry for 2.5 seconds.
Deadly ganks from the base all day, every day.
You have Mercury Treads and 10% CC reduction from masteries.
Not going to be useful you're the tank and will probably survive everything so why bother
Uninstall if you have those
Seriously, go look in a pool of piss.
This is how your early game should look like.
Seriously though, you can gank bot lane when enemy team pushes.
After you hit level 3 you will have red and blue buff and you should immediately look for a gank.
Be SURE to ping the hell out of your teammate and make sure he's ready to gank.
If all is normal, the closest lane to you is MID. So gank that lane if there's some poor sucker overextending. Arctic Assault into Permafrost and Northern Winds. if your teammate doesn't finish him off you may have to tank 1 or 2 tower shots. Immediately Flash away after. First Blood! (if nobody on your team fed already.)
Even if you carry the game hard you should always educate your teammates on what to do in team fights, because cliches say 'a chain is no stronger than it's weakest link'. If you don't help your clueless/new player/unskilled teammate pick up on the game, you're definitely going to lose. Don't blame everything on them, but instead, try to inspire them to play better. That way you're more likely to win and everybody has fun.
Right here, this is what 'a chain is no stronger than it's weakest link' means. You can't win by just carrying, as the strongest and the most important person on your team it is of utmost importance that you also take up the responsibility as a leader.
By now you should have built your build halfway. It is especially hard to gank since your enemies will be sticking together. So there are a few things you need to be sure of before starting a fight.
1. You are in an advantageous position (underneath turret, ambush, etc)
2. The enemy team isn't doing the same thing (Manly Enemy AD carries who rush up front in team fights)
3. The numbers are even (doesn't apply to enemy.)
4. Your team knows what to do ( e.g: Tell your carries to sit in the back until you initiate, landing an AOE ult correctly, etc)
Then you toss out your Glacial Prison -> Permafrost -> charge in with Arctic Assault then pop Northern Winds to soak up as much damage, while dealing some as well. You should be prioritising the enemy carries to MAXIMUM EXTENT while disrupting them HARD to make their jobs as DIFFICULT AS POSSIBLE. Trapping 3 in your ultimate is already successful and now your team can commit to the fight. Now you will press on, rush into their carries, activate your Randuin's and lay down your CCs while stopping your team's carries from being focused. As the battle winds down one or two will have tried to run. From this point on, a basic attack will slow them by 67.5%, if you have the red buff. They cannot escape.
You're probably not the only person who roams the jungle. So it's good to keep a tab on whoever is jungling on the other team.
Some of the most annoying picks
Definitely not someone you want to see in your own jungle. He is great at escaping, chasing and fighting. You probably shouldn't attempt to counter jungle him. But he can. There's nothing much you can do about it. Advice: Gank sooner than he does. Let him know agony as you gank lanes successfully and there's nothing he can do about it.
This sneaky little ***** will always try to counter-jungle you, if he doesn't then the person behind the computer is probably ******ed. So you can simply avoid that happening by counter-jungling him as well since sneaky Shacos always lay box traps when you try to get that Blessing of the Lizard Elder or Crest of the Ancient Golem . If your timings are good enough you may catch him at very low health as he's not very tough.
This guy is really tough and 1v1 with him means you lose. There's not much chance against him as he has HP percentage damages which are especially bad for you.
As I said before, gank before he does.
I'll add more when I can bother to.
