Introduction

I use this build for my personal goods, I do not encourage you to use it, but i would love to share it.


Guide Top

Items

As you can see my first item is boots. I just put a final build up there. You might wanna start with Dorans ring for early mana regen health and AP. After that build an soulstealer asap, you have enough movement speed without boots (cause of your passive / E passive). Build your boots after you soulstealer and start ganking a little, help out others. If everything is ok you can build an deathcap. If you aren't going that well, build an catalyst first then rush a RoA.

Pros / cons

Pros: Insande burst damage (You can consider buying deathfire grasp instead of mejais if you're not going that well)
Your shield / ulti will absorb / heal 4 times as much as normally.
You can still support cause you got slows / cc and healing.
People underestimate janna's damage, Try to bait them in a fully charged Q skill and slow him down with your Zephyr
You can get chased down by 5 man and still escape. Try to save flash as long as possible.

Cons: You are still pretty vulnerable for damage, So don't go all chuck norris.
You still gotta buy some wards to keep your team supporting (Else they start crying)
Don't go 3v1 / 2v1, You have excellent damage, but you're better 1v1

Tips

Whirwind position:

DONT Cast it in the middle of a creep wave if you are not farming those creeps. This will only push your lane and the enemy will ''think'' that you will cast it in a creep wave.
Always try to cast your whirlwinds to the top or bottom of the last enemy ranged minions (The place where the ad carry will prolly stand). Run to the other side of were you targeted the WW to confuse them. They will back of to the other side and will most likely get hit by your Q. In mid air trow an E skill and back up again.

I know these are situational tips but they work most of the time.

Why clarity?

It keeps you in lane for twice as long. If you prefer mana regen runes over AP runes, You can always take ignite or clair. But remeber that you are playing as a carry, not a support. That doesn't mean you don't have to buy wards! Janna's ulti with 500 AP can fully heal up an mordekaiser who's stacking warmogs. Improved clarity can bring your team up to full mana (including your ult) + full health. Very usefull after a teamfight, so you can keep pushing.

Summary

Thanks for reading my guide. I wish you luck with AP janna.
