Threats & Synergies
He is Graves, and he will kill all Monsters until the game is over (Powerfarmer). So he will also kill your jungle Monsters and he can 1vs1 you. Try to fight him with your Teammates together that will be succesful.
Olaf`s ult makes him unstoppable and that will ruin you, because you have so much CC what makes you to a good Ganker and now you can`t do anything with your abilities.
I think this matchup is even because, you are both tank junglers and doesn`t do that much damage.
He is Darius, after the buffs he can now farm better in jungle and he is a 1vs1 legend with his bleedings. If he gets fed he is a Extreme Threat but if he isn´t that fed he is not a big problem.
If she doesn´t get that fed she can´t oneshoot you because you are too tanky and after her Combo u can kill her ez.
When he reach lvl 6 you will lose every fight, also you have antiheal. I also don´t know what Riot think by making this Champ. So play safe and don´t let them tell you that it´s your fault.
I mean he can always ult and you can´t follow but without ult he is an easy target, because he can´t oneshot you.
Don´t fight her early because that´s her primetime. If she doesn´t get that fed in early you can fight her in mid game.
If Evelynn hit her Charm an then her combo you can say bye-bye, because she has to much damage and when survive her combo you must run because you can´t fight her. So try to fight her early or when you know she doesn´t have ult ready.
Fight him early, he can´t do so much. Try to come lvl 6 earlier ( I know not that easy) so you can stomp him more and more because when he is lvl 6 his ults are always good in teamfights.-
I think in a 1vs1 both of you can´t kill the otherone. I mean he is tanky and do good damage and you do also.
She got a Hotfix so now she is a little bit better but in Jungle she nahhh. I recommend to buy anti heal and then you will win I think.
It´s so hard for you vs. a Hecarim he can fight you like all time and is one of the best Junglers in League so be careful and try to find a lane where you always gank so that this teammate can carry you the game. I wish you good Luck!
Hard to say I never played this Matchup but I think you can oneshot him when hit all abillities.
So don´t underrest that he will be a little bit tanky but when you are in a 1vs1 you can fight him easy aldo don´t underest Daisy and be careful that no enemy is coming.
He is a fighter and do good damage both isn´t that great for you so try to fight him when you have your Hydra or only with you teammates because his ult in 1vs1 isn´t Nice.
You can´t fight him in a 1vs1 because he is canceling your CC and also your auto attacks. When he get kills early and his Trinity he is a little bit busted.
When you fight him early with full life you will win so fight around the crab because the crab is important for you.
I mean he is squishy but do tons of damage be careful in early game and fight him until you have ult. But wait until you make your ult he can be invisible.
Her ult is very annoying for you and if she kite you well than this isn´t a nice matchup for you. As well she do tons of damge with Kraken Slayer.
I played vs him a few times and I won also to good Lee Sin´s. I would say it´s a great matchup for you.
So it´s even I think because she has a little bit more damage but you have more CC and both ults are in teamfights important.
We all know Yi if he gets fed he is an Unstppable Monster and will make a penta alone so try to fight him lvl 3 or with a Teammate that he doesn´t get that fed.
So Morgana is in the Moment very OP in Jungle she will out jungle you, be careful! But actually I played vs her and won always in 1vs1. So I think even.
I think with Nidalee it´s like Graves and Morgana be careful if she invade´s you. The difference between Graves and Nidalee for you is that you can kill Nidalee easier then Graves.
His Spaceshield isn´t effective vs you so go for E and then his Spaceshield is gone Q and do damage with your PTA. But with his fear he is dangerous.
Nunu & Willump
He is tanky AF and can do so much damage and have CC. I think he is a better version of you.
I know he is Pantheon and can do tons of damage but you block his combo and then you do damage back. If he gets doesn´t fight him!
With Poppy it´s the same like with Nunu but she haven´t that much CC. Get your Chance and CC her to death!
Uff after the little Rammus update he is a monster to you! So much Damage cause of his taunt and good CC with tankiness. Deadly!
Speciality: Her ganking potencial, the tons of CC
Me and my Leona Jungle: Welcome to this Leona Jungle guide, my name is MiningRicK and iam a silver player. I play League since season 9 but learned in the past more and more about items, runes, abillities and champs in League. Since the beginning I love to play Leona and my first favorite role was jungle so I tried to play Leona in the jungle and I think it works pretty well. You have with your CC a so great gank setup and farming isn´t that easy for Leona but it definetely works. So try It and have fun with this Guide!
+ very tanky|
+ can deal good damage as fighter-tank
+ very good early game lvl 3
+ amazing gank setup
+ enemy can´t move, great CC
+ isn´t that difficult to play
Leona in the jungle is a very tanky champion. But she can also deal good damage with Press the Attack and Titanic Hydra. In combination with the tanky items she is a biest! As well she has fine early especially on lvl 3 and an amazing gank setup where she can get easy kills or supports while ganking. Another Pro-argument is that she has tons of CC so the enemies can´t move and in gank situations often a free kill for you or your teammates. Leona is for everyone because with a little bit training you and others can master her!
- can get fast underleveled|
- farming isn´t that nice, bad clear
- can easy get outjungled
- once out of game, can´t do that much to come back
- must hit skill shots = Zenith Blade Solar Flare
- 1vs1 are sometimes difficult to play
The Cons on Leona jungle are a bad clear because she hasn´t abilities that do a lot of damage to monsters, so it isn´t that nice. Because of the bad clear she can get fast underleveled when she also gains no kills. That´s why Powerfarmers are her biggest Threat they will clear all jungle monsters and your jungle will they clear too. If Leona is once out of game she won´t come back so fast, then she is only a little bit tanky and unimportant for the game. In the Pros I sais you must train her a bit, what I mean with this is you must train to hit her skill shot´s Zenith Blade and Solar Flare. In some situations you can fight 1vs1 with Leona but in total be careful and fight with your teammates.
|Press the Attack||Leona can use Press the Attack very easy because of the tons of CC she have. As well it gives your good extra damage and in my view the best keyrune for Leona in the jungle .|
|Triumph||Triumph give you the life back from ganking or 1vs1, also it give you gold (20 gold for every kill or support) and with Leona your main task is too gank so for my playstyle a nice rune.|
|Legend: Tenacity||Legend: Tenacity gave you more tenacity and this is for tanks every time great. You can increase the stacks by killing your jungle Monsters or getting kills by ganking.|
|Coup de Grace||When you have a succesful hit with your skill shot Zenith Blade you have your CC combo and deal good damage. Normally your combo don´t one shot the enemy, so he will do his combo and if you fall under 40% of your life here is Coup de Grace! Now you have your Q Shield of Daybreak and the extra damage of Coup de Grace to kill your enemy target.|
|Cheap Shot||In the second tree I am going for Domination and not for Resolve because Resolve give you more tankiness what you can also use but I like Domination for the extra damage and Leona has enough tankiness. So I go for Cheap Shot probably the best rune for Leona in the Domination tree. It gives your more damage if you CC a Champion and like I said in all Chapters Leona is a CC bot.|
|Eyeball Collection||Like I said your main task is to gank and with ganking you get kills or supports. With Eyeball Collection you get for every support or kill more damage (1,2 Attack Damage) (2 Ability Power) that sounds not that much but you get more kills and supports and you will scale with your attack damage a bit.|
Your task with Turbo Chemtank is to activate the active and run, when you gank on lane and then insert your Q Shield of Daybreak to stun your enemy first and after Q you insert your E Zenith Blade to root your enemy. Also Turbo Chemtank give you great stats.
The Mobility Boots give you great Mobility like the name says. It´s always great to catch an enemy when you gank.
Dead Man`s Plate
So at first Dead Man's Plate give you again 5% Movement Speed which is a bit helpful, as well it give you Armor and Health to stack it for the tankiness and the Extra Damage on Titanic Hydra. Last but not least it give you a powerful Attack.
Titanic Hydra is one of the most important Item in this Build on Leona Jungle . When buying Item it give you 30 Attack Damage and 500 Health. At first 30 Attack Damage don´t hear that much but it scale with Health and both item´s you bought before give you health and Titanic Hydra too. So you get good Attack Damage. Also the second effect is very strong because you can clear the jungle much better.
Most time the Midlaner do AP Damage so here is Abyssal Mask it give you Magic Resist and health to stack also for Titanic Hydra. As well your teammates do more damage to enemys when you stun them.
Warmog's Armor is a great end for the items because it give you Health and Ability Haste. Health is very good for Titanic Hydra and the Ability Haste for spamming your Abilities.
