Top 5 Builds for Senna

Senna, the Redeemer is one of the strongest champions in League of Legends. Originally a support champion, she can be also played on top, mid and as an ADC. She has everything: lots of damage from passive, heal on Q, root on W, camouflage for all teammates nearby on E and a global ult which has huge damage, travels very fast and grants allies a shield. Even as a support champion, you can easily carry with Senna. She is one of my favorite champs at the moment, and for good reason.

Build 1-The classic support build

Very good for healing and shielding allies, disabling wards and traps and also gives senna some additional damage and lethality. This build is good for a more passive Senna player.

Item build (cost-10 800 gold)

Starting items:

  • Spectral Sickle
  • x2 Health Potion

Early build:

  • Serrated Dirk→ Boots of Speed→ Duskblade of Draktharr
  • Boots of Swiftness.

Core build:

  • Black Mist Scythe
  • Athene's Unholy Grail
  • Umbral Glaive (passive reveals wards and traps and grants 1-shot on them)
  • Redemption

  • Ardent Censer 
  • Mikael's Crucible

Ability order:

early: Q-W-E-Q

late: max Q

        max W

RESOLVE - Bone Plating, Revitalize

Bonus:

+1-10% CDR 

+9 Adaptive (5.4 AD or 9 AP)

Build 2-Another support build: freeze them all

It heavily relies on Glacial Augment rune and on the active ability of the items. The big slows compensate for Senna’s immobility and can turn the tide of a team fight on your team’s favor. However, you sacrifice damage on auto-attacks.

Build 3-ADC 

A lot of damage and lethality make an ADC Senna an unstoppable force. 1-shotting squishy champions, as well as melting tanks

Build 4-Senna as a midlaner

Manamune is the key item here. It allows Senna to have a huge lane sustain: large mana pool and heal from Q. It is important to rush Tear of the Goddess since Senna has a small initial mana pool and big mana costs on abilities.

Build 5-Top Senna+Dark Harvest

Lethality and armor penetration against top laners is the safest option. Additionally, the Dark harvest rune goes well with Senna’s ult by making sure that she finishes off her enemy.
