Threats & Synergies
She just does way to much damage and her E makes it hard for you to run in and poke her.
Once he is 6 he has the potential to crush you by getting you into a full on fight with this ult. however if you got quick fingers you can knock him out of his dash or if he ults you deep in lane you can just ult him into turret and you win XD
To much damage! you can go even and play safe... but she can push the lane so hard so you cant really roam without losing a lot of pressure
Dodge the charm and you win. when you get swiftys its easy enough to dodge her stuff so just go in for pokes until she is half hp and all in and kill her. easy
Dont get stuned and just poke as much as you can. His ult makes it hard to get kill confirms but you should be able to go even pretty easy. what sucks is he can push lane pretty hard making it hard to roam.
Dont get hit by ult XDD... no but for real, if he misses ult you win. you will have enough MS to dodge full power E so if he misses ult you can kite and sheild him.
He pushes pretty well so its hard to roam. Obviously you dont want to be pushed and have him flash ult you and get ganked but you can farm it up and try to roam.
Fed zed will win... so dont let him get fed... however you can lane really well against zed. you can poke him endlessly and even at 6 you have your ult to put him way out of position. play the lane smart and you can also roam a lot.
Wind wall sucks. other then that lane can be a little rough if you let him e up to you without punishing him. His 6 really isnt strong because your ult just wins it. However he is a late game beast and you wont be 1 v 1ing him there....
dodge snare which is easy with high MS. poke and ward and you'll shut her down putting her under tower. just make sure to ward!
Just dont let her poke you. Wait out Smoke. If she lands her e just tornado her. you can bully her a lot and roam after you push wave.
you can bully her pretty hard early and roam since her wave clear isnt the greatest when she is getting smacked. dont let her just stand in minons and push for free! 6 just ult and win :p
lots o' damage here. dont let her poke. Try to push as hard as her and kept the lane even. you will have more value late game.
Pushes you in... so try not to have to farm under tower. Makes it hard to roam but if you dodge his e you should be able to poke him well however his q and w are hard to dodge up close so dont trade unless there on cd
Ew... will out heal most of your damage and kept you pushed pretty well and its hard to trade since his q range will match your w range. late game cant really do much to him since most vlads will build MR.
just dont get hit... duh. you have the movement speed so dont get hit by cage and he shouldnt be able to do much. you can push faster as long as there slow farming there Q so roam a lot
Perma push op. Damage also high af. just try to kept lane pushed and farm it out. Late game you are worth more!
Champion Build Guide
Janna is at heart, a support and when you play her mid you will be doing a lot of the same things... however with a twist. Those tornado's that would fly around and just knock someone up will now chunk squishys. Your ult that was used to knock back most of the time is now beyond broken healing well in the 1000's during a team fight.
With her W passive and building Swiftys you will be flying around the map able to help your team with your amazing roaming power... you also have pretty good wave clear as you stack up that ap and get a full charge Q at a wave giving you optimal time to get around the map.
Janna isn't going to be the 1v9 carry might have been hoping should would be, but she is still going to destroy your enemy's hopes and dreams as they try to catch you. Janna's natural peeling becomes deadly as you now can pack a punch often catching enemy's off guard with your damage. This often leads to you softening up there team for anyone of your carry's to come in and clean house.
All in All Janna is a fun pick that I would highly recommend for Casual play. She can be a fun and unexpected pick and can net you some wins. Her ranked capability is there and I play her there... just be ready for the flame. XD
Janna has always been a bully in bot spamming W. It has a low CD and good enough ratios in the early game that it can get pretty annoying. This is your best friend in mid lane. Any time you notice your enemy cycle through CDs walk up and give 'em the good old bird to the face. The slow attached will make it very difficult to approach you after and a lot of times you get away with free damage.
Janna's Q is going to be a learning curve ability however. Your Q can save your life or get you kills depending on how you use it. If I'm doing well in a lane I often just let it hit the wave and help me push so i can roam. However if your getting ganked a lot hold it and it can save you every time.
Shields are awesome and Janna's E will pretty much be used exactly the way you use it as support... for shielding XD
Monsoon is amazing and at 6 gives you a lot of power. It will deter any assassin from jumping on you and if you get ganked will just make you not get ganked... :p This ability is best late game but if utilized to push an opponent towards tower or towards your jungler it can be an amazing tool.
Even though you play Janna more or less like a support late game there are a few big differences in how feels. Your shields and damage are going to be on steroids compared to a full support build... obviously.
Late game you can pump out tons of damage and turn a teamfight around fast. if you land a 2-5 man Q with full AP you can swing a fight fast. If you get a good ult in your back line you can easily kept your tanks alive when they should be right and dead. Your W will have an almost 70% slow with your AP making it easy to catch people out if they get separated.
Janna should be played just like a mage and you need to stay in the back because you are very squishy. As long as you stay alive you will be a massive addition to your team.
However! you will not be winning very many 1 v 1's. Janna is not a dueling champion. If you do catch some one out you will have to play it slow and smart. Your low CD's is your biggest weapon and don't all in a full HP opponent!
