League of Legends (LoL) Question: Is anyone running Sejuani up top?

    Is anyone running Sejuani up top?

    Or can she only jungle? what about a aura based support for a kill lane with the AD?

    I'm thinking about grabbing her she looks like a neaat variation on mounted heros.

    I play sejuani top. You cannot push the tower but you can easily defend it and escape all gangs. You also have great synergy with your jungler while gangking top. If played against two or ranged you underfarm but you can still keep the tower unharmed while your jungler harashes the other lanes. Start with philosophers.

    proof of concept

    To overcome the issue of underfarm, take coin of ancients with refillable health potion as startup items....that allows you to hang back behind minions, get gold & xp until you reach lvl 5-6. Build ancient coin into nomad's medallion, and eventually into eye of oasis. This gives you constant gold income, health gain and an added bonus of rechargeble stealh wards.

    Oh btw, that is for random games. I am not doing ranked.

    well Kaemdar, with her skills and scaleings but pretty much weak early game she is way better as a top lane champ or aura support... even Mid lane... than jungle. Decent nearly unkillable late game champ if u know what and when to build on her with massive over time dmg (up to 1.8k/6s with just her W)

    With the new itens she is very interesting top, if your jungle helps you enough, or at least if you farm a bit without feeding much, you will get a bit more gold than if you was jungling, and you'll get sunfire + Lyandri's faster, and for sure you will see what a Huge AoE Over time damage means

    RoA first item imho.
    PrawdziwySmok (2) | March 20, 2013 2:10am
    Sunfire and Liandrys r very popular but if u'll do maths u'll understand that there r better items for her, like Randuins and RoA.

    I honestly play her as top or jungle. She does not do too well solo, however, so i usually need someone to carry till i get ult, then I go full throttle. But, I've played her since she came out soley top, so it really depends on the player imo.

    if you want an interesting top that can win some matchups, pick up shyvana. She's very similar to Sej, besides the obvious lack of CC.

    No, no one plays her top lane.
    PrawdziwySmok (2) | March 20, 2013 2:08am
    i do play her top lane and i win many mathups, the only problem r overaggressive champs or those with dmg based on enemies max HPs like Jarvan, Vi or Amumu.
    GrandmasterD (531) | December 31, 2012 7:50am
    No, with good reason. Her damage is low, her mana costs are high and she pushes the lane. Also, making use of her ult is hard.
    PrawdziwySmok (2) | March 20, 2013 2:06am
    this just means u have no idea at all bout how to play her. She gets massive damage on her W just with boostin' her max HPS and she pushes the lane only if her enemy is not there as she can't zone them, and usin' skills all the time means u have problems with mana as u just did. Her ult is very esy to use as it has high range and is AoE.

    I don't feel she has enough damage to win a lane or even not lose it if you want to play her top just wait a couple weeks for her buff(maybe longer)
    OTGBionicArm (415) | December 31, 2012 4:56am
    She actually has great sustained DPS, I just won lane against Pantheon because I had too much armor to be bursted and out DPS'd him afterward.
    OTGBionicArm (415) | December 31, 2012 1:42am
    When she was released I always played her top. (As a bruiser)
    She's was pretty ****py at dueling then, and went oom rather quickly.

    Perhaps with the new items, such as starting with a flask, and playing her like some kind of... makeshift- Rumble, going AP and Abyssal Mask/ Sunfire Aegis and Liandry's Torment. may work. Ultimately Rumble obviously does this better, but hey, if you like Sejuani enough.

    Another funny notion could be to play her mid and go AP. You'd get blown up insanely fast, but hey, YOLO right? Northern Winds actually has a pretty insane ratio of .9 AP (If it hits for the entire duration, and the enemy is permafrosted.) and also scales off health, so items like Rod of Ages or Liandry's Torment would compliment you.

    I personally have had a Sejuani support as well, and while it's absolutely not going to outclass Leona, it's odd enough to work in a "I've never seen Sejuani wat do" kind of way.
    OTGBionicArm (415) | December 31, 2012 4:55am
    That's what I was building, hah.
    dat_ez_lol (1) | December 31, 2012 4:21am
    The build looks pretty good on sej but your last item should be warmogs IMO
    OTGBionicArm (415) | December 31, 2012 2:36am
    For kicks, I tried it myself and here is the result:

    Nocturne fed Jayce FB, so I lost the lane hard, but I got to roam and gank to great effect, so not all was lost.

    Sejuani cannot handle a super aggressive character like Jayce.

    I solo top quite frequently and I have only ever seen one Sejuani in top lane, and that was part of a duo-top with a Trndamere. Top probably isn't the best lane for Sejuani since she doesn't really have enough damage to consistently trade 1v1.

    I have seen a few Sejuani players go bot lane as a support and it seems to work out alright, so perhaps that's worth looking into.
