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.
Thanks for showing interest in my Leona guide. Very appreciated!
If may not look pretty yet but I will work on that.
The point of this build is to show you a different way to build Leona. We will focus mainly on hp which lets us survive 5v5 fights. Provided you buy all the items you should be pretty much immortal.
Leona the tank
Yes! Leona is a tank. A very powerful.Not only can her stuns break huge damage chains but also you can help your allies get away from enemy. Here we will focus mainly on hp, which for me, is the way to survive.
:Flash is a great escape ability but it may be used to catch opponents as well. Quick combination of
+ and is a very effective way to stop enemies.
: This will help you to deal with heroes having short immunities such as . It is also excellent for finishing low hp enemies.
Most builds suggest maxing Eclipse first. I have tried it and in my opinion it is not the best way. After many successful games as Leona, I suggest focusing on Shield of Daybreak. The bonus damage from the skill is very helpful which helps in a 1v1 fights too. Usually enemies are smart enough to avoid Eclipse.
Runes and masteries are hp oriented. I pick offense mastery since there is nothing viable in utility.
I usually play very aggresive. This is why I take Shield of Daybreak first. Usually I am able to grab a kill in the first few minutes with it. Especially if you have a good damage dealer with you on the line. The idea is to stun in a good spot which allows the second person to lower enemy's hp.
After some time you should already have your Shield of Daybreak/Zenith Blade/Solar Flare. These 3 abilities are perfect for ganking. Try looking for opponents which could be potential kills. Signal your teammate to be ready. Open with Zenith Blade then stun immediatly(your teammate should be attacking already). If the target survives you can throw ulti to buy more time. Eventually you can always Flash/Ignite or Flash/restart the stun combo. Do NOT be afraid to rush low hp enemy by the tower. Leona is capable of taking a few tower hits as well.
During late game you should have plenty of hp which makes you a hard to take down target. Dont be afraid to dive into 3 enemies and open the way for your team to fight. AOE stun is an excellent way to hold a few opponents in place just long enough for your team to kill them.
As you may have already noticed. The items are HP-oriented. HP is a great way to counter both AP and AD enemies. Completing whole build takes quite a nice amount of gold but the number of kills/assist will let you buy it eventually.
Hall of Fame
These are my recent games. Should you want to show your screens, do not hesitate to write to me and I will be glad to put them here !.
Leona is an excellent tank. With this build you can make her immortal-like. Leona is a very strong addition to the team due to her stuns and ability to lock enemies.
Thank you very much for getting interested in my build. I am awaiting feedback anxiously.
