Sejuani, the Winter's Wrath Revealed

By NeeksNaman [1]

As some of our more discerning lore-hounds may have anticipated, Sejauni, the Winter's Wrath, is 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 Sejuani combines raw, physical might with the chilling ice of her homeland. After slowing enemies with her Frost.png Frost passive on auto-attacks, she can activate her Permafrost.png 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 Arctic Assault.png charge from her Bristle boar and her Glacial Prison.png Glacial Prison ultimate. The Arctic Assault.png former tramples enemies and applies Frost.png Frost, while the Glacial Prison.png 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 durartion. 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, Glacial Prison.png ultimate initiation!

Champion rework (Full Relaunch): Sejuani, the Winter's Wrath

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.

Visuals

Sejuani 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 ProfileIcon0547 Winter&#039;s Claw 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.png 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 traditional look.

Abilities

Frost Armor
Frost Armor

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

Arctic Assault

Bristle charges forward, Airborne icon knocking enemies into the air and dealing magic damage. The charge ends after Airborne icon knocking an enemy champion into the air.

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, she immediately starts swinging her flail.

Permafrost

  • Passive: Abilities and basic attacks apply Frost.png Frost to enemies.
  • Active: All nearby enemies with Frost.png Frost take magic damage and are Slow icon slowed.

Sejuani throws a frost-forged bola in a line. If the bola hits an enemy champion, it shatters, Stun icon stunning the target and nearby enemies. If the bola reaches its maximum range, it shatters and Slow icon slows enemies. All enemies in the shatter area take magic damage.
