Hang on, Seraphine ADC? WHAT? ARE YOU NUTS?

Season 11 in Summoner's Rift bring a lot of ideas for Season 1 Wild Rift, and Seraphine ADC (or bot lane) is one of them. here's why she is one of broken champ.

Pros

  • PERMA HEAL BABY.
  • One of the most game-changing ultimate in the game.
  • Flex pick, can be good for your lane priority.

Cons

  • Clunky champ, no escape mechanism.
  • Still considered as troll pick in solo queue.

Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

SeraphineSeraphine can fully use the newest item Staff of Flowing WatersStaff of Flowing Waters as she can shield, and make your opponent's life hard with poke, and if your support is a poke like LuxLux or even SonaSona (good God this lane is nasty as fuck)  and of course we gonna rush the Rabadon's DeathcapRabadon's Deathcap for another uranium power for AP champs, plus we're gonna use the Luden's EchoLuden's Echo as your poking ability is go to the moon.

Okay, this is where the perm heal comes out. you see, we don't have moonstone (an item supposedly for support in SR, look it up in Google ye lazy bastard) in Wild Rift so we going to use every AP that we have for this healing machine. 

After getting 3 core items, there are selections of situational. 

  • Void StaffVoid Staff : well, classic closing item, not much to say here.
  • MorellonomiconMorellonomicon : anti heal and more durability, maybe SeraphineSeraphine can find demonic song in there.
  • Liandry's TormentLiandry's Torment : ah, the anti tank item for AP, Seraphine loves to torture the community with her presence so why not?
  • Lich BaneLich Bane : more movement speed bonus plus extra damage after casting a spell. 
  • Guardian AngelGuardian Angel : SeraphineSeraphine want to live another day to make another song with KDA or perhaps, True Damage? but sometime it doesn't worth 3.4k gold investment actually.
  • Crystalline ReflectorCrystalline Reflector is actually a middle finger to every AD assassins or AD carry such as ZedZed YasuoYasuo or even LucianLucian . remember the more ability haste, the more you can be protected each cast.

Vayne is the only champion in Summoner's Rift and Wild Rift that doesn't have any AoE (Area of Effect) abilities. you can abuse this fact by shoving into her lane, and shut her down. however try to survive when you try to shut her down or you can out scale you hard.

anyway, who the fuck play VayneVayne in bot lane?

Seraphine

Sera's BFF

BraumBraum Winter's BiteWinter's Bite and Concussive BlowsConcussive Blows work hand-by-hand with Seraphine kits, remember those attack by Seraphine can help to proc the stun provided buy Winter's BiteWinter's Bite
JannaJanna ZephyrZephyr is one of the example of point-and-click CC and able to bring Beat DropBeat Drop into next level, especially if it is powered by Stage PresenceStage Presence then it is a dead champ who getting those cc.
Also can be her laning phase partner
SonaSona Yeah yeah, Sona 2.0 or whatever you fucking call it.
Sona and Sera are annoying regarding regeneration and if Sona has [Aery] keystone than good luck to kill both of them.
Put her with SeraphineSeraphine if you can, wherever she laning.



Seraphine

Early game

Early game is the great time to be SeraphineSeraphine as she can be annoying in laning phase, she can spam every spell in her kits WITHOUT GETTING PUNISHED, she's really the poke bitch you really like as bot lane, and hate as enemy.

what you gonna do is, FARM, FARM, FARM. SeraphineSeraphine doesn't have any kill potential until level 5 as you really need EncoreEncore as your initiate key and spamming galore can begin with it, and spam for stacking your Archangel's StaffArchangel's Staff mana bonus

Try to contest Mountain Drake as it will help you to cast your Surround SoundSurround Sound as heal instead of shield.

Seraphine

Mid - Late Game

This is where Seraphine is annoying little bitch for the other side. Thanks to her kits, team fight is her forte and she will punish enemy team that grouped up together or has no flashes.

Get your items and your team start grouping up to make the game ARAM (All Random All Mid) ? good. it is time to shine. if you can see any opportunity to use your EncoreEncore then proceed casting it. however be on lookout for any counter-initiation by enemy jungler or mid.

If your team has shield for you, always heal up your team with your Surround SoundSurround Sound .

tbh I think this was m0re viable back then. N0w, y0u aren't that str0ng, but at least its c0nsistent.

Overall, your guide is good for Beginners and I can see your idea of stacking your passive in your combos. Anyway, good work! Keep it up! :)

I recommend you not to spam abilities to farm. It's OK if you want to spam abilities to clear your wave when you're about to RECALL.

Plus, I don't think the Rune Loyalty have any value rn. It's too weak. Furthermore, you CAN be punished by spamming your skills on minions while farming. You'll be out of mana stacking your Tears.

Secondly, why do you need healing and anti-healing when you are the carry? As a carry, you need to have ego as an ADC. "I'm a carry! Somebody by anti-heal for me! I'm busy building damage items!"

Somebody buy anti-heal for me*
