Why use ad janna?

Most of the ad carry have common problem, that is too easy be focus in team fight. Especially champion like Xin Zhao, Diana dash, that made ad carry may die early in team fight. But Janna don't have this problem. When enemies want to focus Janna and flash or dash in, Monsoon can solve the problem.

Moreover, AD Janna have high movement speed with Taiwind and passive of Zephyr, that why you never can chase Janna. Howling Gale can help Janna run away easily too. So Janna not easy to die when get a gank from other team in bot lane.

Janna items build like normal ad carry's build. But the movement speed of Janna already fast enough with Tailwind and Zephyr, so Phantom Dancer not the core item to buy. Disadvantage of Janna is basic AD is quite low. So the build will be focus on more AD.

Infinity Edge is a must buy item for ad carry. U can deal many dmg with this item. Even your attack speed not very high.

The next item to buy is Madred's Bloodrazor. This item can increase your AD and attack speed. And have a op passive to shut tank down. For low basic AD dmg Janna, it will be a useful item for her.

Vampiric Scepter I usually buy it when i have $450 left after buy AD item. You can get this item more early if bot lane deal lots of dmg.

The Bloodthirster Phantom Dancer are for higher AD or Critical Strike Chance to deal more dmg. After you bought it, it usually become a late game. That mean you cant die in team fight, so that why you should buy Guardian Angel

Runes and Masteries

Normal runes and masteries for ad carry, I don't explain it in here.

Skill Sequence

The play style of Janna is quite similar to Sivir. Sivir passive Fleet of Foot can let you keep attack and chase enemy by passive. But Janna always have this benefit by the passive of Zephyr. It can help you to chase enemy easily.

In lane game, i usually use the combo of Zephyr and Howling Gale. It can create lots of time to let u keep usually basic attack to deal dmg.

Moreover, don't forget to use Eye Of The Storm that can increase your AD when the shield still active.

The role of ad carry in team fight is try to deal more dmg as possible. Eye Of The Storm can use it on yourself or other teammates. But I suggest use it on yourself. Because your role is ad carry. Not support anymore. So you should use the ability that can help you to deal more dmg.

When you start be focus in team fight, that's easy. Use Monsoon knock enemies back and keep use basic attack to deal dmg. This is the most advantage of AD Janna. Not easy to be focus :)

How about Zephyr in team fight? You don't need to use it. Because the passive will more important for you. When team fight almost end, its time to use Zephyr for chase enemy that in low health.

Howling Gale usually use to stop enemies ult like Katarina's Death Lotus or Nunu's Absolute Zer . Or use it to blow enemies away when champion like Xin Zhao dash to you. Try to keep Monsoon not to use because it is the finally method for you to keep alive!

Janna already have well protection on herself. So bot lane partner will be suggest more CC champion.

Taric have remote stun, heal, can give armor or even AD to Janna]. A perfect partner with [[Janna] . But the disadvantage is [[Taric's Dazzle can stun one person only. That mean when enemy ganking bot, enemy team still have some champion can keep attack. However, the advantage of Janna] is not easy to die when get a gank from enemy team. So [[Taric can give Janna easy kill in bot game and Janna can protect team very well under ganking. That why Taric is the best partner with ad [[Janna]

For all support champion, Alistar always have the perfect CC. He also have Triumphant Roar for heal. Always be the good choice partner

Leona have well CC too. But Solar Flare is ult. That mean may have longer cd than Alistar stun. And Leona don't have heal T^T. But she still a good choice when Alistar banned.
