Champion Build Guide

AP Leona Midd/Supp

By TJack42
For this guide I will be using words and phrases that league players would usually know. I will not explain basic's, champions, or abilities, because you should not be playing AP Leona if you are newish to the game.

Most of this guide is made for the stadard Burst runes but the support runes also work.

When you play Leona mid, you have to remember you don't have a passive when you fight unless, you get ganked or roamed by a teammate, so until you hit mid game you should play extremely passive. Don't fret if you allies start flaming you early you'll make up for it late game. If it gets really bad just mute them,(which should probably just be done anyway).
Summoner Spells
When picking summoner spells gives you the damage and grievous wounds you need early considering your passive only procs when you are roaming or getting help from your jungler.

If your playing a game against someone like Talon or Twisted Fate with high roaming and objective potential I prefer to take over . When going SUPP, and are usually the best option, but if the enemy only has one or two potential carry's, is also a valid option.
Game play
When playing Leona you usually have to play passive level one, after you hit level two or level three it is your time for action. Let the enemy push in waves so you can freeze and keep vision in the bushes. If they don't leave lane rush them or - to engage and just mash your keyboard ( - - -AA- - -AA = standard full combo).

Always follow your lanner because you have amazing counter gank potential with your two stun's and a small root. Hit level 6 and set up for ganks as much as possible, once you get ahead roam, roam and roam.
Against life steal
If you against life steal champs like Yasuo you can rush first or second item if your the only real tank on the team. Otherwise go .

If they are insanely fed I recommend building ability haste to keep them stun locked an unable to life steal. Some good Items for this are or .

Going will also give you the grievous wounds early which is the main reason I believe its better than mid.
Tips and Tricks
E-Flash engage
When playing Leona there is a special trick that she and many other champions can do. You can use a ability, in this case her and immediately after casting to jump quickly towards the enemies. This can be useful when trying to run after and surprise your opponent. The will travel towards the direction of your cursor no matter which direction you .

If you want to increase your dmg output in fights or clear newly placed wards there is a special skill which is almost necessary on Leona. To preform it, right after Leona completes and auto attack you can rapidly click the enemy press and then auto them again. This increases your dps in fights although it might work against you as it gives the enemy more time to or use a ability. It can also be used to clear newly placed that fall next to you without or a control ward.

E TPs to last hit
If you are fighting in a large group of enemies but you need to get to a carry or a low enemy in the back lines, you can position Leona so that your Zenith Blade's target will be the last one hit and travel through a group of enemies.

Animations during E travel time
While dashing towards an enemy using you can use your other abilities to cancel there animation and prepare while in the air. This is especially useful with as it is very annoying when you accidentally cancel your auto or when using it normally.
