Sejuani, the Winter's Wrath Revealed

Sejuani OriginalSkin old.jpg

By NeeksNaman[2]

As some of our more discerning lore-hounds may have anticipated, Sejuani Sejuani, the Winter's Wrath, is charging charging in as our next upcoming champion. We wanted to take a moment to talk to you about her gameplay, and what you can expect to see.

Hailing from the Freljord, Sejuani combines raw, physical might with the chilling ice of her homeland. After slowing enemies with her Frost Frost passive on auto-attacks, she can activate her Permafrost Permafrost ability to drastically increase the slow and inflict damage. This allows her to continuously disrupt enemy movements and create a threatening presence - a necessity of any primary tank.

Sejuani's initiation ability comes from two sources: the powerful skillshot charge charge from her boar boar and her Glacial Prison Glacial Prison ultimate. The former tramples enemies and applies Frost Frost, while the latter flings a giant ice shard from her flail, stunning anything it hits by encasing it in ice. Enemies near that target get stunned for a shorter duration. This makes accurate skillshots important, as Sejuani needs move into the right position to maximize the stun duration on her intended target. If used correctly, this ability can change the outcome of a teamfight. If used on a sub-optimal target, however, it will be partially wasted on a tank or lower-value target.

This being our first mounted champion, we're happy to release not only an epic barbarian woman on a giant boar, but also a tank who can use continuous soft disruption with bursts of big, ultimate ultimate initiation!

Champion rework: Sejuani, the Winter's Wrath

By Ryan 'Morello' Scott[3]

Sejuani Update Concept 05.jpg

Sejuani Sejuani girds herself for battle, eagerly anticipating the inevitable conflict brewing in the Freljord. There are a number of changes coming for Sejuani, including a visual upgrade, new gameplay mechanics, and a deeper exploration of her lore.


Sejuani's lightly-armored, skin-flaunting, fleshy apparel didn't mesh with the idea of a dominating, ice warrior. Now heavily armored atop Bristle Bristle, this visual rework clearly conveys the core of our concept for the champion. She's powerful, capable of conquering the Freljord, and leading the Winter's Claw profileicon.png Winter's Claw to victory.

If we were going to make Sejuani look imposing, we needed make sure her fierce steed, Bristle, could keep up. Here we added bulk and power to his model, and updated the animation on Arctic Assault Arctic Assault to show him tossing scattered foes into the air.

As with the Trundle Trundle and Karma Karma relaunches, those of you who already unlocked Sejuani will get a free skin based on Sejuani's Sejuani's traditional look.

In order to deliver on the promise of a powerful barbarian, we've added enhanced utility to her skills, allowing her to go head-on as a massive, tanky initiator. With a powerful armor-generating passive passive, a potent knock-up knock-up, AoE damage, and slow slow to go along with a tweaked version of Glacial Prison Glacial Prison, the Winter's Wrath is now even angrier.


Frost Armor

Damaging an enemy with an ability or basic attack grants armor and reduces Slow icon.png movement-slowing effects on Sejuani. If Sejuani already has Frost Armor, its duration increases.

Flail of the Northern Winds

Sejuani's next basic attack deals bonus magic damage to the target and enemies near it. She then begins to swing her flail, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies over time. If this ability is reactivated reactivated, she immediately starts swinging her flail.

Glacial Prison

In the jungle

Sejuani's still a riding CC machine out of the jungle. In the early game, Frost Armor Frost Armor keeps her health high while she tears through jungle camps with Flail of the Northern Winds Flail of the Northern Winds. The combination of Permafrost Permafrost and well-timed Arctic Assault Arctic Assault from the brush can quickly lock down an enemy for a kill. Once she has a point in Glacial Prison Glacial Prison, the additional stun makes Sejuani's ganks even deadlier.

Mid game

Heading into midgame, Sejuani makes an excellent split-push champion, pressuring lanes with Flail of the Northern Winds Flail of the Northern Winds, then using a combination of her other abilities to escape enemy ganks. Her full arsenal of crowd-control makes chasing or being chased a frightening prospect for the opposing team. Her passive passive armor allows her to wade into the front line of skirmishes, secure in the knowledge that her teammates can pick targets off at leisure.

Late game and teamfights

One of the most imposing initiators in League of Legends, Sejuani can use Glacial Prison Glacial Prison to force a fight near an objective, or hunt down retreating foes with Arctic Assault Arctic Assault. As a strong source of magic damage, Sejuani makes a great tank to complement an AD heavy lineup. Her charge charge can break up a channeled ultimate or wreak havoc on the enemy team's positioning. All the while she'll absorb huge damage and protect the squishier members of her team by forcing opponents to engage on her with her impressive crowd-control.
