As Riot Games continue to roll through their roster of heroes giving each a visual update as well as tweaking their abilities to balance them with all the new heroes that have released since their entry into the game, they’ve detailed the changes coming to Sejuani, the Winter’s Wrath.
This includes more clothing and a bigger wolf/tusk/bear thing.
Riot explain their changes in a recent blog post, saying “Sejuani’s lightly-armored, skin-flaunting, fleshy apparel didn’t mesh with the idea of a dominating, ice warrior.” This led them to cover her fleshier parts up with armour. As well as this they decided that her mount, Bristle, needed to be larger, so they “added bulk and power to his model, and updated the animation on Arctic Assault to show him tossing scattered foes into the air.”
What this means, in layman’s terms is she goes from looking like this:
Her moves, too, have been tweaked to “deliver on the promise of a powerful barbarian” by adding “enhanced utility to her skills, allowing her to go head-on as a massive, tanky initiator”
So, her abilities list now reads like this:
Passive: Frost Armor – Damaging an enemy with an ability or basic attack grants armor and reduces movement-slowing effects on Sejuani. If Sejuani already has Frost Armor, its duration increases.
Q: Arctic Assault – Bristle charges forward, knocking enemies into the air and dealing magic damage. The charge ends after knocking an enemy champion into the air.
W: Flail of the Northern Winds – Sejuani’s next basic attack deals bonus magic damage to the target and enemies near it. She then begins to swing her flail, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies over time. If this ability is reactivated, she immediately starts swinging her flail.
Passive: Abilities and basic attacks apply Frost to enemies.
Active: All nearby enemies with Frost take magic damage and are slowed.
R: Glacial Prison – Sejuani throws a frost-forged bola in a line. If the bola hits an enemy champion, it shatters, stunning the target and nearby enemies. If the bola reaches its maximum range, it shatters and slows enemies. All enemies in the shatter area take magic damage.
