Items



Item Sequence











Talisman of Ascension
2400

Locket of the Iron Solari
2200

Boots of Mobility
900

Randuin's Omen
2900

Twin Shadows
2400



1. Sightstone

Sightstone is the most important Item for any support.
Having free wards will help you controlling your lane and saving your gold for other Items. The extra life will help you tank anything for your team



2. Shurelya's Reverie

shurelya's reverie
Shurelya's Reverie gives you enough Health and Mana Regeneration to stay in the lane. Besides the useful Health and Cooldown Reduction you can use the active to engage very fast or disengage and save your buddy's lifes.



3. Locket of the Iron Solari

The aura of Locket of the Iron Solari is good to protect your Teammates against incoming magic damage and provides some health regeneration too for everyone. The Active shields your whole team which can be good for teamfighting. Besides these utility reasons it also gives some good stats for you.



4. Boots of Mobility

Most people would take Mercury's Treads or Ninja Tabi for Leona because they provide resistances but especially for the laning phase i prefer Boots of Mobility to get faster to the lane and to chase down your enemies like no one else. You can switch to Merc's or Ninja Tabi later if you like.



5. Randuin's Omen

With this Item you should be tanky enough to protect your ADC even better from any incoming Damage. With the Passive you are able to escape from the enemy ADC and with the Active you can keep your foe's close to you by slowing them.



6. Twin Shadows

Twin Shadows is the last Item you should buy to make the most profit out of Kage's Lucky Pick's Passive. The Active sends out two ghosts that hunt down the two nearest enemy Champions to reveal and slow them on hit. With all these Items and your own CC abilities you are now able to chase every enemy with fast and strong engages, disengage with high movement speed or shield your allies in a teamfight.

Skills



Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18



(Passive) Sunlight

Leona's passive marks the enemy champion with your spells and makes extra magic damage, if hit by another allied champion. This is very effective with a champion with fast cast sequences, like Ezreal.



(Q) Shield of Daybreak

If activated your next auto attack stuns the opponent for 1.25 seconds regardless of the level of the ability. You should skill this first to get rid of annoying enemys going in your bush. After the first Skillpoint don't max this ability because it will just cost more mana to make more Damage. You don't need the Damage. Just stun. You're the Support not the AP Carry.



(W) Eclipse

Eclipse gives you a shield for 3 seconds, increasing your Armor and Magic Resistance. After the 3 seconds your shield explodes and deals Magic Damage to nearby enemy champions. If you hit any enemy Unit, your shield will save you for continuing 3 seconds. After you skilled it with level three, you should max it for maximum Armor and Magic Resistance to tank the whole enemy Team for your allies.



(E) Zenith Blade

With level two you skill your E to complete your most important E-Q Combo. With Zenith Blade Leona throws her "sunny sword" and dashes to the last champion, hit by the blade. While Leona dashes the last hit champion is immobilized. Now you are able to engage and show presence in the lane. This abilty should be max'ed after
Eclipse because it's basic cooldown is higher then Shield of Daybreak.



(R) Solar Flare

Leonas Ultimate is Solar Flare. With Solar Flare you can Stun or Slow enemys from a far distance. To Stun the enemy champion you have to hit them in the middle of the Ult. Otherwhise he gets slowed. Well timed, the enemy gets immobilized up to
3.25 seconds (2.75s stun - 0.5s snare) and thats a very long time for any champ. If you initiate well, you can change the whole fight.

Utility: 16


Summoner's Insight
It's always nice to have a lower cooldown on your flash. Support is no exception. [1/1]

Meditation
A little bit Mana regeneration, so you won't get out of Mana too fast. [3/3]

Mastermind
Reducing the cooldowns of your Summoner Spells is always a good choise. [2/3]

Artificer
The active parts of your Items are very important. With this mastery you may be able to use them for engage and they will propably be ready again after the fight [2/2]

Greed
As a support you abstain from farming but you need to buy your Items, too. So you will need the 2 Gold every 10 seconds additional to your 3 Greater Quintessence of Gold Runes. [4/4]

Biscuiteer
If you skill this mastery, you will start with a consumable item which regenerates Health and Mana for some sustain in lane.[1/1]

Wealth
Take this to start with more Gold to start with the Items I showed before. [2/2]

Explorer
With this mastery you start with a 60-seconds-ward. This is good for Leona to check the bush in the Lane because she has no abilty to check it without going in. [1/1]
