Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

Starting Items:

  • Long SwordLong Sword . Depending on what item you're building first, this will be your first item to purchase. This item will give you AD, allowing you to deal more damage during laning phase.
  • Ruby CrystalRuby Crystal or Cloth ArmorCloth Armor . These items will be the component of Iceborn GauntletIceborn Gauntlet just incase you plan on building it first. Ruby CrystalRuby Crystal gives HP while Cloth ArmorCloth Armor gives armor. These items will help you survive much longer during laning phase.

POWERSPIKE:

  • Last WhisperLast Whisper . This item is one of the main components of Serylda's GrudgeSerylda's Grudge . This item gives AD and percentage armor penetration. The armor penetration is very good in early game and even in late game since ADCs and supports usually build armor later on after building their core items.
  • SheenSheen . This is a component of Iceborn GauntletIceborn Gauntlet . The ability haste is very useful and the passive allows you to deal extra damage after casting a skill. 
  • PhagePhage . This item is a component of Black CleaverBlack Cleaver . The HP is really useful for added sustain and the AD is nice too. This item is good for chasing since attacks and kills grant you movement speed. 

CORE ITEMS:

  • Serylda's GrudgeSerylda's Grudge . Frozen Mallet has been removed lately as it was being replaced by this item. Serylda's GrudgeSerylda's Grudge is basically what you buy if you think Mortal ReminderMortal Reminder 's grievous wounds effect isn't needed. This item gives AD, ability haste and armor penetration. Just like Frozen Mallet, this item slows enemy targets hit for 1 second.
  • Iceborn GauntletIceborn Gauntlet . This will be your second item for SennaSenna since she is very squishy and her abilities have long cooldowns and high mana costs. This item grants armor, mana and ability haste. It's passive creates an icy field around your enemies that slows them every time you cast a skill. 
  • Black CleaverBlack Cleaver . This item allows SennaSenna to shred the armor of her enemies which allows your teammates to destroy tankier opponents much easier. The bonus HP is good since SennaSenna is very squishy and the ability haste is good for her cooldowns.

FLEXIBLE ITEMS:

  • Guardian AngelGuardian Angel . This item gives armor and AD. Only buy this item if you find yourself dying a lot.
  • Youmuu's GhostbladeYoumuu's Ghostblade . This item has the same stats as Umbral GlaiveUmbral Glaive without the ward detector passive. This item is good for roaming.
  • Maw of MalmortiusMaw of Malmortius . This item gives AD, ability haste and MR. I wouldn't recommend this item since Wit's EndWit's End is already in Wild Rift. However, if you want to survive against AP heavy matchups, the lifeline passive this item gives is good for you.
  • Rapid FirecannonRapid Firecannon or Runaan's HurricaneRunaan's Hurricane . Either one of these items is good for SennaSenna . Both give crit chance and attack speed, but the important part is: do you want extra range, or want to damage multiple enemies at the same time?
  • Wit's EndWit's End . This item is good for AP heavy matchups. It gives MR and attack speed which is essential for SennaSenna since her attacks are really slow.

For Damage:

  • Infinity EdgeInfinity Edge . This item is great if you want to build crit on SennaSenna since her passive makes her autos deal 50% less crit damage. This item mostly negates that and gives you AD and crit chance. 
  • Mortal ReminderMortal Reminder . This item is great if the enemy team has a lot of tanks or if they have a lot of healing and lifesteal. Most of the time though, SennaSenna won't be needing the grievous wounds. Your ADC should be the one building that. Besides the point, you can replace this item with Serylda's GrudgeSerylda's Grudge in the future if you think you only need armor penetration and not anti-heal.
  • ManamuneManamune . This item is good for SennaSenna since she has mana issues early game. Gives AD, mana and ability haste. This item will eventually upgrade to MuramanaMuramana . You'll want to build this if you're going lethality.

Grasp of the Undying
Domination
Gathering Storm
Gathering Storm
Resolve
Second Wind
Second Wind
Inspiration
Hunter Genius
Hunter Genius

This the usual Tank Build for SennaSenna . This build allows her to be tanky and still do so much damage because of her stacks. In PC, Grasp of the Undying and Font of Life can be used together, but in Wild Rift, they're 2 different runes. You can use either Grasp of the Undying or Font of Life depending on the team composition and your build. Gathering Storm is great as it further increases her damage overtime along with your stacks. Second Wind is good for sustain and Hunter-Genius is great for the extra ability haste. You can replace Gathering Storm with Weakness if you're building Frozen MalletFrozen Mallet on SennaSenna first.

Keystone
Summon Aery

Domination
Gathering Storm

Manaflow Band
Manaflow Band

This rune set is good if you're building SennaSenna as an enchanter rather than a tank or ADC. Summon Aery is good for poking because of its damage. Gathering Storm works well along with SennaSenna 's passive. Second Wind is good for sustain in lane and Manaflow Band is great because SennaSenna is a mana hungry champion.

Fleet Footwork

This rune set is good if you want to play SennaSenna as an ADC. Conqueror or Fleet Footwork are great choices for SennaSenna as it allows her to deal damage or increase her healing. Gathering Storm will always be good for SennaSenna since it works well with her passive. Second Wind is great for sustain in lane and Hunter-Genius is great because SennaSenna 's abilities has a lot of cooldown.

GalioGalio is an easy matchup for you. While his Winds Of WarWinds Of War can deal a lot of damage, that is his only way of poking you in lane. You can easily harass him early game since he's not that tanky. Just watch out for his knockup-taunt combo.

Best Synergies

LucianLucian . You were made to combo with LucianLucian . Your lane can be played aggressively as you are comfortable together. Look to auto-attack any champion he hits with his Ardent BlazeArdent Blaze to give him an easy trade. Layer your Piercing DarknessPiercing Darkness with his Piercing LightPiercing Light with each other to deal huge amounts of damage and set up his The CullingThe Culling
AsheAshe . Her passive pretty much gives you free Glacial Augments or in this case, Frozen MalletFrozen Mallet 's passive. If you're laning with her, you don't need to buy Frozen MalletFrozen Mallet . Instead, you should buy Iceborn GauntletIceborn Gauntlet instead. Her Enchanted Crystal ArrowEnchanted Crystal Arrow can be a great set up for your Last EmbraceLast Embrace . If you do take Frozen MalletFrozen Mallet + the Weakness rune with her, you'll be an annoying duo.
DravenDraven . If the one who plays him is good, you can both play aggressively and crush dragon lane. He can make easy work of any champion you root with your Last EmbraceLast Embrace . Your healing and shield will make sure he's alive to keep his adoration stacks.
JhinJhin . This is a flexible lane, so you can play passively or aggressively depending on JhinJhin 's playstyle. Look for combos on his Deadly FlourishDeadly Flourish and Captive AudienceCaptive Audience combo along with your root from your Last EmbraceLast Embrace that you can abuse.
VarusVarus . It doesn't matter if he builds lethality or AP, his ability to be aggressive in early game is always welcome. Try to combo his Chain Of CorruptionChain Of Corruption with your Last EmbraceLast Embrace to guarantee a kill or 2.
XayahXayah . Her passive feather range can match or even outrange you. Force enemies to engage you so she can use her BladecallerBladecaller with your Last EmbraceLast Embrace for high damage and lockdowns.
YasuoYasuo . Very aggressive post-level 3 which is what you want. Force fights with your YasuoYasuo while you can so you can hit multi-hits with your Piercing DarknessPiercing Darkness . If you manage to land your Last EmbraceLast Embrace , it's a death sentence for your enemies when YasuoYasuo is around.

Warding Locations

One of the most crucial but least talked about parts of playing support is warding. Wards can keep your team safe, help your jungler counterjungle, and contribute to securing objectives. Knowing where to place your wards is an essential part of playing support.

Warding Options:
Warding Totem. This is the standard ward. It has 3 health and gives 30 gold when destroyed. It's free and becomes invisible after a while. These are the best for short spurts of hard-to-detect vision such as before doing an objective or warding a river to avoid ganks.


Oracle Lens. This replaces your Warding Trinket and gives you a way to clear your opponents' vision. I would not recommend starting Oracle Lens for support since the vision that Warding Totem gives is much stronger.


Your First Ward:
Your first ward has only one true purpose: to catch the enemy jungler/midlaner when they are ganking. You'll be placing it as soon as possible so you can get vision of the enemy jungler/midlaner. If you're on blue side, I recommend warding the bush near the river, or the Scryer's Bloom behind it. If you are on red side, I recommend warding the blue side's tri-bush to catch their jungler. These wards are important if you're up against an early game jungler like Jarvan IvJarvan Iv . Of course, don't be afraid to use your first ward to push or defend against an invade if it's advantageous to your team.

If you're not against a strong early jungler, or perhaps their jungler started on the opposite side of the map, you may consider saving your ward. This way, you'll have enough wards to ward a bush to prevent ganks and/or ward the dragon pit.

Side note: You can't force your ADC to ward. A lot of them just don't use it. Even if they do, they only do so to hit the enemy behind FoW. You just have to play around this and get a feel for how and when will they ward. Use this to your advantage.

During Laning Phase:
In the laning phase, your wards should aim to prevent successful ganks by your opponents, enable successful ganks by your team, and control objectives. To this extent, I recommend jungle tracking if you're in a place to deep ward, as they can spot the enemy jungler and allow your jungler to counterjungle or gank the opposite side of the map.

During Mid/Late Game:
Mid and late game plays very similarly to laning phase, albeit more objective-focused. Concentrate on placing vision on objectives like dragons, Rift Herald, and Baron Nashor. Depending on your build, you should either have Umbral GlaiveUmbral Glaive or atleast Oracle Lens to remove enemy vision. Make sure to ward each objective about 45-60 seconds before they spawn. Warding Totems usually last from 90-120 seconds depending on your champion level, so it's important that visionis up on objectives during skirmishes. Alternatively, use Oracle Lens or utilize Umbral GlaiveUmbral Glaive by removing enemy wards. Don't go into jungle alone, so have someone follow you.

Senna

Early Game

This section will be different from the Warding Locations section.

SennaSenna 's early game is about harassing the enemy while keeping a safe distance. This is because she doesn't scale AD when levelling up without Gathering Storm, items or her stacks. Use Last EmbraceLast Embrace to set up kills for your ADC. Depending on your build, you'll want to buy Long SwordLong Sword as your first item and upgrade Piercing DarknessPiercing Darkness as your first ability. This will be your main harass and healing tool. You can use it on anything that is targetable, even wards, blast cones, and honeyfruit. This ability also goes through champions, minions and monsters so you can harass safely. Max this ability first, then Last EmbraceLast Embrace . Upgrade Dawning ShadowDawning Shadow when available and max Curse Of The Black MistCurse Of The Black Mist last.

As SennaSenna , you want to be picking up as many Mist Wraiths as possible during laning phase. It will always drop from a cannon, dead enemies, monsters and objectives like dragons, heralds and Baron Nashor. This will allow you to scale infinitely. Pay attention to the location of your jungler on the minimap. Help out your jungler by warding the river and objectives and use Curse Of The Black MistCurse Of The Black Mist to help your allies escape. 

Senna

Mid - Late Game

In mid-late game, you want to keep a close eye on the minimap. Try to find good opportunities to use your ult to save an ally and/or sniping off an enemy. Stick close to your ADC or your strongest member of your team and be ready to save them with Piercing DarknessPiercing Darkness . Last EmbraceLast Embrace can hold an enemy in place long enough for your team to arrive and clean up the fight.

At this point of the game, you have atleast 60-80 stacks. This is enough for you to outrange most ADCs without problem. If you're lucky, you might have 100+ stacks at this point, allowing you to outrange a tower, which also allows your team to push easier because of your damage.

During a teamfight, you must be positioned behind your teammates and away from the enemy. You don't need to be up close since at this point, you have larger range than most ADCs. Use your abilities to shield and heal your allies while damaging the enemies at the same time. Only use Last EmbraceLast Embrace if an enemy decides to jump on you or try to escape.

Stick closely to your ADC (if he/she's ahead) while roaming efficiently and safely to deep ward enemy jungle and objectives. If possible, you could use Oracle Lens or Umbral GlaiveUmbral Glaive to remove enemy vision.
