Hello all, i'm trying to create my first guide here at mobafire but looking through the champion rune build section I can't seem to find the seal energy runes listed at all. o_o Am I the only one?

It's because they're not in the database right now. I'll tell Matt about it.

In the meantime... the energy runes in general are pretty bad. I wouldn't use them if I were you.

Energy runes are useless, Energy regen are situational, but can be useful on characters like kennen for a small Dps increase.

Its on shen seeing as hes the only champion that suffers greatly from energy problems. Its that or flat armor seals, but 14DEF becomes irrelevent late game where I feel getting the energy back quicker for another skill such as SD is normally the deciding factor in battles, no?

EDIT: Yes yes I meant energy regen runes.

Akali has also a huge lack of Energy in team fights, escpecially if she doesn't get energy from Q back. But still,other runes are way better IMO.

Just stick in armor runes for now, working on getting energy runes. (And, imo, armor runes are better on Shen anyways :3)
Thanks to Minho for my sig!

Energy aren't useless. But most players favor other choices.

Spam less E.
Also, autoattack the guy you hit with Q ffs.

On topic: Energy runes can be useful, but other runes are so much better in general that they're very rarely used. I personally would never use them, since they would replace what I consider to be stronger runes.

Armor seals are better on Shen than energy imo. If you want a better late game, you could try HP/lvl instead if you like.
Thanks to MissMaw for the sig!
