Well, Leona is the newest champion in the League after many delays from riot... lol. Overall she is an awesomely fun character and quite formidable as well. I personally build her as sort of an AP-Tank and not to toot my own horn but im the best Leona I've seen so far so here's how i play her! Enjoy :)
For a tank she deals some pretty ridiculous burst damage (especially at low levels)
Very nice utility
Not a DPS
No real escape mechanic
relient on rather tricks skillshots for ult and dash
The reason I do
is because she is very slow and sometimes when you need to get back into a teamfight or chase someone down you need to be faster. Fortify is self explanitory, you're a tank. You get fortify.
if you think that you want more CC go for this
At low levels you are able to do a ton of damage, your W will hit for a lot and make farming minions less of a pain but your main dps combo is W-Q-E This way by the time you E in you will insta-stun with Q and your W should explode very soon, this is made easier by the use of your ultimate at later levels.
Protip: In teamfights, attempt to drop your ult's stunny part on the physical DPS's this will maximize its effectiveness.
I basically play Leona like any other tank, when a teamfight starts use your ult and then dash to the center of it, CC the highest DPS and go to town.
Well ya so thats how i play Leona, as soon as mobafire adds Leona ill change it to a guide thats actually for her :) Enjoy!
