Threats to Janna with this build
|Jax||Janna is generally strong against champs like jax. If you start landing your q's and you're near the ADC you can pick off jax easily.|
Hey, my name is CalGamingTV. This is my first guide on mobafire. But let me introduce myself, I started playing league in about january and a mained to for a while but now i main supp.Im not a great supp but i know how to get stuff done. Anyway, im doing a guide on my favorite support, Janna.
Pros and Cons
[*] Great cc
[*] Easy after a few games
[*] Useful ult
[*] Does godly if theres a yas on her team
[*] Great Disengage
[*] SUPER Squishy early
[*] No heals until 6
[*] Doesnt do damage
[*] No real escape (Except flash, of course)
[*] Can kill team if ult not used correctly
Her early game is fairly simple. After you get sightstone, you ward every 3 mins. Before you get sightstone, you should ward the river with your 3 min ward, and ward in the lower brush with your 1 min ward. Once you do that, stay near your ADC, this works out so much better if you are duo queing. If you are duoing, ask when hes about to go in then you E him. This gives him lots of damage and if also shields him. If you arent duoing, ask him to ping whenever he's about to go in. You could get off massive damage if you do this. Use your Q if the enemy team gets cocky, then you can E your ADC And if it goes well you get a kill.
First Back/Early-Mid game
This is my favorite time of the game. You buy your first major item. Sightstone. I buy this on all supports. Not only does it give you three wards every time you go back to base, but it also gives you additional health. so you can protect yourself from ganks and get tankier.If you have 200+ gold left over you can also buy a pink ward, mana pots, and some health pots. You want to use your pink ward defensively. You can either use it to protect from ganks or you could use it to protect dragon. Then you can go crazy with sightstone, ward offensively and defensively. Then when you get back in lane, if your adc has gotten a kill already, you can either help your adc get another kill (By slowing,knocking up, and ulting) or you could do my second option (Only works if you have a yas mid, or if a top yas agrees with you to roam mid) you gank mid and you then try hitting your Q. This can only go 2 ways. If you miss your Q Your cover is blown, so you would probably go back to bot. Or if you hit the Q, your mid laner gets a kill.
Laning Phase Is Over/Teamfights
When laning phase is over, you go to mid and try getting towers. The chances are that the enemy team is also mid. If they are stronger than you, you use your Q and ult to disengage if they go in. But if you are the ones that are ahead, you can easily get free kills and towers. Teamfights for janna is fairly simple. Just Q the carry and then your team goes in and possibly gets a kill. This works great if you have a fed yas on your team.
The reason i buy talisman is because it gives CDR, which is great, Mana and Health regen which janna NEEDS. And it gives crazy movespeed, which goes well with jannas W and Passive, and it gives 2 gold per 10 seconds. Since janna is a supp she doesent CS, so this helps so much.
It gives health and wards, need i say more?
This gives CDR, AP, Mana regen, and movespeed. I cannot explain how much i love this item on janna. It goes well with her movespeed kit. It gives her AP, which gives her a better shield and better damage with the E.
I like cooldown boots because janna just absolutely needs 40% CDR. Get homegaurds too
It gives you MR and HP. So it has that which is going for it, but why would i get this over Spirit Visage? I already have the CDR, and i don't really need all that health regen. I get Banshee's Veil for that amazing passive. Its good against ADCS like vayne or cait.
I prefer this against AD based teams, or teams with a fed adc, the slow is amazing too.
2 Words. Pro. Baits. This active gives you amazing baiting potential. It also gives you an additional damage boost with your E.
Janna is an amazing supp for everything, cc, warding, heals, and damage. If you want a new supp, pick her up as soon as you can,
