Senna is the latest League of Legends champion which was introduced to the game on November 10th. She is a fierce marksman that supports her team by wielding the power of light and shadow which can be seen in her whole skill kit. At the moment Senna is one of the most powerful aggressive Supports and she can also be played on solo lanes such as Top/Mid lane. On top of that, Senna is also capable of being a fully kitted ad-carry, provided that you know how to play her as one. Although skill plays an important role within your win-rate with Senna, it’s also important that you pick the best Senna LoL Build so that you can rank up in the current meta– as the latest season is nearing its release date. In this League of Legends Senna Build Guide we’ll be going over the most powerful 9.22 LoL Senna Builds for Top, ADC and Support roles. These builds were carefully picked among the highest win-rate Senna players in the current patch so they’re going to be perfect if you’re looking to win games.
Senna’s Spell Kit
Senna’s Absolution is a Passive skill that traps unit’s souls which died near Senna. Senna can attack these souls to free them, absorbing the Mist that held them in death. Mist fuels her Relic Cannon’s power with increased Attack Damage, Attack Range, and Critical Strike Chance.
Senna’s Q Piercing Darkness fires a unified beam of light and shadow through a target, healing allies and damaging enemies.
Senna’s W Last Embrace sends forth a wave of Black Mist. If it hits an enemy it latches onto them hungrily, rooting them and everything nearby after a brief delay.
Senna’s E Curse of the Black Mist draws the Mist she has stored in her weapon into a storm around her, embracing darkness and becoming a wraith within. Allies who enter the area are camouflaged and also appear as wraiths as the Mist shrouds them. Wraiths gain increased movement speed, are unselectable, and hide their identities.
Senna’s R Dawning Shadow calls upon the relic stones of fallen Sentinels, splitting her relic cannon into a holy array of shadow and light. She then fires a global beam that shields allies from harm, while damaging enemies caught in the center.
LoL Best Senna Support Build 9.22
This Senna Support Build can be played by going pure support items, though if you’d like to also do some damage you can actually mix it up so that your item loadout contains both support items and some carry items (check the Top/ADC Senna loadouts)
Support Senna Runes
The bonus runes depend on your preferences: +9 Adaptive, +9 Adaptive and +6 Armor will be the generic setup. You can also choose to go with CDR, AP, MR instead.
Flash and Ignite are usually the best choices for a Support Senna build since she’s a very aggressive champion. If you think you can’t be aggressive versus some opponents, Exhaust instead of Ignite is also a great option.
The full Support build items are sorted in an order of importance (Boots first, Mikael’s Crucible last). As we mentioned before, this is a full support loadout which won’t deal any damage but you can mix it up with some damage items if you prefer to be aggressive.
LoL Best Senna ADC Build 9.22
Senna is more than capable of being a powerful ad carry because she can infinitely scale her passive which means she becomes stronger as time passes by. Fleet Footwork is currently one of the most popular choices to go as an ADC Senna but if you prefer burst damage, Electrocute is also a nice alternative.
ADC Senna Runes
ADC Senna works best with +9 Adaptive, +9 Adaptive and +6 Armor bonus runes. In some rare cases you’ll want to take Life/MR but that’s just a preference.
Senna’s spells as an adc are very flexible. On the first slot you must take Flash, but the second spell is generally determined by your opponents on the bottom lane. Ignite, Heal, Barrier and Teleport are all solid choices for an adc Senna on the bottom side.
This is currently the highest win-rate Senna ADC build for the 9.22 Patch. Boots of Swiftness should only be bough once you’ve acquired at least the Duskblade. Also, a thing worth mentioning is that the boots slot is also down to your own preference– you can buy Boots of Swiftness, Mercury’s Treads, Ninja Tabi’s or even Ionian Boots of Lucidity.
LoL Best Senna Top Build 9.22
Senna is a viable choice even on the top lane (though, only versus certain enemies so pick carefully). Even though she’s incredibly squishy and won’t snowball on the top lane, her ultimate can come in handy as it’s map wide– meaning you can help your team wherever they are.
Top Senna Runes
Electrocute Senna is incredible for high burst damage as she can decimate any low health opponent on the top lane. In, case you need much more sustain, go with the ‘ADC’ rune page above which uses Fleet Footwork.
As far as the bonus runes go, you’ll want +9 Adaptive, +9 Adaptive and +6 Armor (or Magic Resist depending on your top lane opponent).
Once again, Flash is mandatory and the second spell slot is mostly preference. In case you’re going with the Electrocute rune page then Ignite can make a big difference in scoring easy kills as you can burst the enemy and Ignite for a guaranteed kill. For higher sustain go with Teleport, Heal or Barrier.
There’s really only one generic “dmg” Senna item set out there and it’s on you to decide what you’re going to buy. The above item build works great for a top lane Senna but if you’re versus tanky/high damage opponents, also consider buying: Maw of Malmortius, Bloodthirster or Black Cleaver as these are great items in certain matchups. It’s also worth mentioning that the Boots should also be picked depending on what opponent you’re facing on the top lane.
