Starting Items


Core Items


AD

Going full AD build means you're very vulnerable since you're squishy. You can replace Youmuu's GhostbladeYoumuu's Ghostblade and Duskblade of DraktharrDuskblade of Draktharr with situational items like Maw of MalmortiusMaw of Malmortius and Guardian AngelGuardian Angel (depending on the situation). You still can run full AD but you need to pilot the champion properly.

  • StormrazorStormrazor : Decent for SennaSenna since it helps her to kite better with the slow effect, as well as dealing more damage, crit and Attack Speed.
  • Enchant of your choice
  • Youmuu's GhostbladeYoumuu's Ghostblade : Gives Bonus MS when out of combat, also gives a decent Attack Speed when this item's passive is fully stacked (Spectral Haste). In short, more roam and more chase.
  • Duskblade of DraktharrDuskblade of Draktharr : Most AD item, armor penetration as well. Good for damage, basically.
  • Infinity EdgeInfinity Edge : Most AD item, provide bonus crit damage. Good for damage, basically.


Defensive

Be flexible. You don't have to buy them in order. Just buy what you need first depending on the situation.

  • Iceborn GauntletIceborn Gauntlet : Good for slowing people = good for kiting. Having mana and Armor feels great as well no?
  • Enchant of your choice
  • Maw of MalmortiusMaw of Malmortius : No more worrying about enemy AP since you ain't gonna die any time soon against them.
  • Trinity ForceTrinity Force : More Ability Haste, Attack speed, AD and MS when Auto Attacking
  • Guardian AngelGuardian Angel : 2nd life feels pretty good I must say.


Situationals

  • Maw of MalmortiusMaw of Malmortius : Good against AP Assassins that want you dead. Also provide a fair amount of AD
  • Guardian AngelGuardian Angel : Good against AD Assassins that want your head cut off. Also provide a fair amount of AD and gives you a 2nd life as well.

Summoner Spells

When to take which summoners

Flash
Even though Senna gains movement speed everytime she autos, she still can't go through walls and getting out of enemy's melee range.
Barrier
Shield that blocks a lot of damage for yourself. It can't be interrupted with anti-heal.
Exhaust
Due to its ability to reduce damage dealt and to slow the targeted enemy, this spell has become a spell for both defensive and offensive.
Heal
Can be countered by anti-heal. But it can also heal the most injured ally and provides movement speed for you and the healed ally.
Ghost
You have long range. With this, you can kite better. This will be super annoying for the enemy team to lock you down. Kite : Position yourself to a good position where the enemy can't touch you while attacking the enemy.
Ignite
Good if the enemy have healing champion(s) and lifestealers
Smite
It's not worth taking if you're going to lane since it reduces your EXP and gold gain from minions. Unless if you wanna try jungle Senna.

SENNA TIPS & TRICKS

  • Piercing DarknessPiercing Darkness and her Auto Attacks can't be blocked by YasuoYasuo 's Wind WallWind Wall . But remember, your Ult Dawning ShadowDawning Shadow can still be blocked by Wind WallWind Wall and BraumBraum can still block everything with his 3 UnbreakableUnbreakable .
  • Attacking an enemy champion twice will drop a soul. (5 seconds cooldown btw)
  • Attacking a soul doesn't proc your energizer stack from Rapid FirecannonRapid Firecannon , Statikk ShivStatikk Shiv ,   StormrazorStormrazor and Fleet FootworkFleet Footwork . Therefore, you can proc your movement speed without using your energizer stack allowing you to trade with the enemy.
  • Even though souls only have 1 HP, SennaSenna applies lifesteal and omnivamp on them as if she dealt a full Auto Attack and Ability damage
  • SennaSenna 's passive [senna:passive] gives her 1 AD per stack, 25 range every 20 stacks, and 15% crit chance every 20 stacks. 35% of excessive Crit Chance will be converted to Lifesteal
  • Rapid FirecannonRapid Firecannon not only extend the range of your Auto Attacks but it also extend the range of your 1 Piercing DarknessPiercing Darkness .
  • 1 Piercing DarknessPiercing Darkness that is extended by Rapid FirecannonRapid Firecannon will not proc your Rapid FirecannonRapid Firecannon 's passive until you hit an enemy champion. This means you can get a huge range on minion wave and and monsters. But it can still be proc by your Auto Attacks.
  • SennaSenna 's 1 Piercing DarknessPiercing Darkness cancel your Auto Attack animation allowing you to use the Auto > Piercing DarknessPiercing Darkness > Auto combo (Standard Trade) in an instant.
  • Auto Attacks reset 1 seconds of your Piercing DarknessPiercing Darkness . Buying Runaan's HurricaneRunaan's Hurricane can proc 3 Auto Attacks.
  • Your Piercing DarknessPiercing Darkness can be extended on plants and proc the plants when it got hit.
  • Last EmbraceLast Embrace is extremely slow. You can either do the [flash] > [senna:2] or wait till someone else CC the enemy team.
  • Curse Of The Black MistCurse Of The Black Mist makes you and your allies untargetable by Auto Attacks and on-hit abilities. Everyone inside the mist will also remains invincible as long as they're in the mist. This is a good surprise engage tool since the enemy team don't know who's inside and how many are there inside the mist.
  • You can treat Curse Of The Black MistCurse Of The Black Mist as a panic button you can press when an enemy engage happening.
  • Keep in mind you can't Auto Attacks or use Abilities while in the mist or else you'll just expose the allies inside including yourself.
  • Your Ult Dawning ShadowDawning Shadow have a global range in which you can use to execute enemies and shield allies whenever they're teamfighting even when you're on the other side of the map.

Gameplay

Basically, you let your Support farm as if they're the ADC and you're the Support. Preferably, you want to pair up with damage Support like SeraphineSeraphine , LuxLux , AnnieAnnie , and AsheAshe .


Note: You can also just play a regular ADC gameplay but you need to poke a lot so you get a bunch of stacks. Not as many as Fasting Senna tho
