Descandant Of The Sun
Not Updated For Current Season
Hi I'm iSaido From Malaysia and this is my first guide! I'm currently a Gold I player climbing up the ladder. This guide is made for Leona currently one of my mains and I enjoy playing her very much. Her high skillcap and strength throughout the entire game make her one of my favorite champions to play. I began playing her towards the early of Season 3 and quickly found that she was particularly good in winning lower elo lanes because her mechanics are difficult to understand and the fact that her popularity was much lower at the time.
A little about Leona.
Leona is in my opinion, one of the strongest mid-lane casters currently in the game right now. Her kit offers a high-damage nuke without sacrificing any utility. Her purpose in the team is to sit at the back/ of the fight and nuke one the enemy champs with Zenith Blade and Shield of Daybreak plus sunlight. That's not all Leona is good for however, the utility in her kit allows Leona to actively peel for herself and other members of the team. Leona works well with a strong front line, while Leona may have the utility to peel for members of the team, she really shines when a front line is able to protect her while she nukes down the enemy team her Solar Flare and Eclipse.
Pros / Cons
Tons of CC and utility (stuns, slows, a gap closer and a shield).
Can burst an enemy down quickly with the help of her AD carry.
She can carry games,
Doesn't offer any form of sustain.
Requires a decent enough AD carry to be effective.
Depends on you hitting skillshots (mainly her ult).
Has to get into melee range most of the time.
