How does leona play into pyke with this build?

Leo can handle Pyke quite well since he doesn't have a lot of disengage (unless he manages to stun you with E, but that's it), he can't poke you, he's squishy and vulnerable to being locked down and, finally, he can't really assassinate Leona like he can squishier supports a la Nami, Janna etc.

What's your opinion on Iceborn Gauntlet on Leona? I tried it some 3 years ago and I liked it back then but I haven't use it since. I realise some of the slow is wasted when your Q procs it but I still think it can be useful sometimes. Just wanted your opinion in this.

I wouldn't get it in any game personally. I think CC is the last thing she needs and Gauntlet is just not something I'd prioritize over Eye, Knight's Vow, Locket or Zeke's.

Hey Jovy,

Nice guide as always! ^^
Leona was the first support I ever played back when I started league and she is and will always be one of my favorites! :)
It's nice to see such a good guide for such a great support!

Good job! ^^

Thanks Kaji :D She was one of the first supports I ever tried out too (probably because she's gorgeous tbh) and that got me into playing melees/aggressive supports :)

Why should I play Leona over other engage supports like Alistar, Rakan,and (my personal favorite) Shen? I feel like Rakan just outclasses her in every way (maybe except tankiness, but even then he has shields).

Jovy (846) | June 5, 2018 3:19pm
Even with his shield (only one, his E doesn't affect him), Rakan is more than just a little bit squishier than Leona. Even if Leona wasn't so tanky, and she does get extremely hard to kill, Rakan himself is just a noodle. If he weren't so squishy, he'd be incredibly broken imo.

But as for why you should play Leona over Rakan or other supports, you shouldn't really. She gets countered easily in champion select and, with all her tankiness and CC, she's still immobile which can be hard to deal with in a lot of games and being an aggressive and immobile bot lane attracts jungle attention. She doesn't get picked a lot in high elo because other supports simply do a better job than her. Alistar and Rakan do for sure. She's also somewhat predictable and sometimes it feels like she only has this one thing she can do, kinda like Blitz. All you have to do is dodge her R or E and she's benched until they're back up usually.

But that doesn't mean she's terrible. Being a killer tank and having this much CC can still be a great asset in the early game (as long as you don't get hard-countered), she's a strong roamer and she can transition well into mid game. Most importantly, at least if you don't simply want to climb, she's a really fun champ to play!

Jovy (846) | May 17, 2018 3:43am
there are no relevant changes, but I'll fix the tags on my guides soon.

OH, alright, I didn't know if there were any new changes/items that would be used for her. But if it is all the same stuff then I thank you for replying anyway <3

Hi! Nice guide. Is it worth it to take Overgrowth over Unflinching? Only wondering because I've seen other guides take Overgrowth. Not sure how much impact that might have, if any. Thanks!

Jovy (846) | May 14, 2018 8:55am
don't think there's any reason at all to take Overgrowth. The boost is super tiny.

Wow... This guide has been incredibly helpful. I am Supp main and getting into Leona has been one of my main objectives to kind of solidify my role in games. Thank you. I have this Guide saved and will absolutely refer to it in the future. Also, I main Soraka. I have M7 with her, as she is my main, but I need to say that I am a fan of how you put things into perspective. Would there be any chance at a Soraka guide as thorough as this?

Glad you like the guide so much Mastaflash! Sadly I'm not planning on releasing any more guides as I'm full time at uni and 5 guides is already too much to keep updating. But if you'd like I can relay my build for her and maybe some tips and stuff like that in a private message, like a mini guide :)
