Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello everyone Agrnox here. If you are looking at this guide right now, believe me, you are at the right place. However, I must warn you, do no look directly at her chest! I know it looks hot but don't. Anyways, you've seen lots of Leona guides out there. DPS, Tank, and AP Leona. What I am showing you is a Tank Build for now, in the future I might put in some other builds as well!
Can Survive Team fights
Team fights are very dependent on Her Ultimate
Does not have any ability to protect herself once feared, taunt, or stunned.
Does not have a lot of damage
Team Mates will have to be very good.
NEW UPDATES: 2011/7/18- NEW MASTERY TREE(DODGE SEALS ARE REPLACED BY ARMOUR PER LEVEL)
Summoner Spell Change, ignite into cleance for survivalbility.
Runes are pretty simple.
Greater Mark of Insight *9 for your Skill to have damage.
Greater Glyph of Shielding *9 is a must have against mages in late game.
Greater Quintessence of Fortitude *9 for early health, so you can stay in lane longer.
For Dodge seals? Why dodge seals? Its based on luck.....Well yeah it is based on luck, some
people prefer armour seals over dodge. The reason I picked dodge is becuse your masteries
give you some speed to chase down an enemy. Plus, your "W" Gives a bit armour anyways, dodge
seals is how I put for leona, if you want something else, armour per level or flat armour are
You are a tank, however to be a successful tank you must farm as well. Leona is very dependent on expensive items. So for her masteries I'd get her 0/21/9 masteries. Ability power boost, more health, more magic defense, and especially the 4% damage decreased. Utility tree I put exp boost, health/mana regen, and more mana regen. This also helps her health regen for her defensive tree.
Dorons Shield First!!! +Health+Health regen+Armour. Who doesn't want those three during lane?
Booots for magic defense and Tenticy.
This is not a joke build- Hearts of Gold for health+Gold
Philosopher;s stone for health regen+Mana regen
(Helps a lot with your masteries)
Get Sunfire cape to look cool, its like a new skin for Leona. Lots of Health, and you have magic delt to surrounding enemies!!! I'll explain later why this item is a must item.
Force of Nature- More health regen, health regen added again with some magic resistence!
Finish this core build first, however if the whole team is made out of AP or DPS. Swithc around with some thornmail for dps, or Banshee's Viel for magic resistence.
Randuin's Omen is an excellent item to get next, with your "W" and your Ultimate. This item is the boss. I'll explain it later in skill order.
OH HO HO YES! RYLAI'S CRYASTAL SCEPTER. Health damage, and AoE slow. Again, this iterlinks with Leona's "E" and her ultimate.
SPIRIT VISAGE- adds bonus health regen with you masteries, philosopher stone is super effective with survivalbility in team fights. (+Health Potions)
Update: I found out Leona really needs Banshee's Viel when you are countering some crowed control fights.(Except for Slow) One stun on Leona is something really huge. Once Leona is unable to do anything in a team fight it means everything! She can't cast her ultimate, spells, and use Zenith Blade to escape, this is a must have item when you have multiple enemies that has spells that stuns, fear, taunts, and blows.
Let's Talk about her skills shall we?
WHATS SO AWESOME ABOUT LEONA IS HER FARGIN SKILLS!
AWESOME DUNDEE COMBO!
This is the order how you should go into a team fight...
-->their carry-->Activate-->the carry-->the group fight-->the carry.
WARNING, YOU MUST AT LEAST STUN 1 OR 2 ENEMY CHAMPIONS FOR IT TO WORK, this combo is for sure to have at least one kill and tons of assists.
Ignite For Kill SECURE!!!!
I choose Ghost Over flash because this spell doesn't mess up the team fight combo.
Leona's Zenith Blade
OKAY?.... why does her Zenith have its own chapter....
When you read social studies 9 (In Canada) the famous Napoleon has its own chapter in the text book.
Becasue its damn important!
is so useful if you use it properly.
In a team fight, you are about to wear down by Enmies, however you see one range enemy character. Useto hit any range character, when you do that,will blink "BEHIND" the enemy range champion, activate ghost and run away.
If however you are not escaping, you can blink to a weaker enemy champion in team fight, this allows you to focus on the weaker enemy champion, and the stronger enemy champion will have to walk around to fight you, which gives you time to plan out how to deal with the stronger one later.
If you do not know what the farg I was saying above, I'll post a video how to do it ASAP!!
Man this is like writing an essay!!
The conclusion is "PLEASE RATE AND COMMENT PLEASE"
This is my second guide, you can check out my other guide "Jax Holding A Lamp". Both are recent updates with the patch. More videos to come with this guide so stay Tuned!!!
I have started to get some losses lately, I've found out after all my spells are used, it is really important that your team mates can do enough damage. For example I hade katerina and Akali as my main source of damage. However katerina she is neutral, and akali is feeding horrible. After unleashing all my skills, the other team reneckton is doing so much damage at my "carries" once they are dead, their carries turned the tables around and slammed my face. I've been trying to find ways to solve this problem for now. At the end I got 10 kills 10 deaths and 10 assists. Howver funny thing is I found out the Leona on the other team is using the number 1 Leona guide. Ended up with a score of 1/6/9. Pretty dope which one is the better Leona lol.
