fishbully's S11 Janna Climbing Guide

By fishbully
Who am I?
Howdy! My name is fishbully and I am a Janna OTP playing primarily in NA. I have peaked in platinum as a support main and over all my accounts I have a combined 1.5 million mastery points on Janna.

I am not a "perfect" player in any sense. I prefer to have fun and most of my guides are of off-meta builds that only work like 5% of the time that I just enjoy playing. I started in season 8 and ended in gold, hit platinum is season 9, and have played more casually since then hitting gold again in season 10 and sitting in gold right now (season 11 -- march).

Janna is my favorite champ of all time, I have many, many games on her and I believe that this is one of my most knowledgeable champs. I hope that this guide serves as beneficial source to players of all caliber, from iron to potentially diamond!
Who is Janna?
Janna has a strong history of being one of the best supports in the game. Not only does she deal decent damage, her high movement speed and ability to kite allow her to do poke. Combined with a "get out of jail free card" which is her q, allowing knockups, Janna has a shield that scales with AP.

That is why Janna is the perfect support.

Janna's Q is a tornado that does damage and travels based on the cast time. It can be re-casted to activate. The tornado is best for getting out of sticky situations.

Janna's W is your damage dealing poke. Therefore this must be leveled first. It scales with AP damage.

Janna's E is your shielding. It helps to turn ganks into your favor and can save you if you get in a sticky situation.

Janna's R heals and can knock back enemies. It is good for getting out of sticky situations and healing your teammates if they make a bad engage.

Janna Pros:
1. Strong peel
2. Fast movement speed
3. Good gank/roam material/potenial
4. scales well
5. easy to pick up

Janna Cons:
1. positioning is very important
2. hard to play perfectly
3. squishy
How to play Janna?
The ideal playstyle for Janna is either incredibly passive, or incredibly aggressive. The matchup is very champion dependent. If you are wanting to win the lane, you must first decide whether or not you need to play passive.

When to play passive:
Janna does not win against champions with gap closers or that can alter her high movement speed. For this reason, let's say a DR. MUNDO manages to hit you with q, he will run you down and you will die. Let's say a SWAIN hits you with E, he will pull and be able to land more abilities and kill you. Therefore, your option to win is under your own turret/play passive.

Why is Janna under turret so good you may ask?
Janna has insane healing, knockups, and shields. Therefore if a tower dive occurs, Q to knock up, E to tank damage, and ult to knock up once again and heal. This is the perfect counter to all tower dives.

When to play Janna aggresive:
Janna wins against tanks and squishy champions for the most part because she is able to out-kite, out-run, or out-shield their damage early. Therefore this is when playing aggressive is very viable. If the lane is pushed roam with jungler for a triple gank mid. Janna does not need kills to scale well.
Early Game
I almost always go:
support item (ice) + potion + warding totem.

Depending on who the enemy jungle is; an invade may be inevitable.
I almost always in this situation go:
support item (ice) + control ward
I then place the control ward in pixel brush or another commonly passed location for invades.

Once in laning phase focus on a total of 3 things:
1. Positioning
2. Poking
3. Supporting

Positioning on Janna is everything, it allows for poke and at times to support, if done correctly you will not die and get your ADC fed. Avoid the problem of Janna's squishiness with positioning.
Mid Game
Mid game is not as important as Early or Late game for Janna.

My top piece of advice is VISION CONTROL:

focus on warding objectives and commonly passed brushes that junglers take. This control on vision can allow for your jungler to gank often and will help in the late game. Vision is the most important thing.

At this point your support item should be complete and an ORACLE LENS should be purchased.
Late Game
Late game is very passive and Janna should not be playing aggressive (she will get one shot by assassins and most mid lane champions). Focus on playing for the team and shielding squishy carries (assassins or ADC).

Use Janna R sparingly as it can be used to escape, don't use it to heal a teammate like 200 health.
Janna is my favorite champion and I hope that this guide can serve as a starting place for your own love for this champion. I plan to update this guide often so please let me know if you would like me to cover/expand on any topic.
