The nine points in the Offensive Mastery Tree is obviously for Archaic Knowledge . The 15% MPen makes her abilities pack a bit more punch, making her harder to ignore. This helps divert attention away from your squishies somewhat, which is what you want to do as a tank.
In contrast, if I spend nine points in the Utility Mastery Tree, I benefit from Haste and one point in Utility Mastery . However, Leona isn't terribly reliant on buffs, and I feel the benefit of Archaic Knowledge to outweigh Haste .
The points in the Defensive Mastery Tree should be fairly self-explanatory.
- Greater Mark of Magic Penetration: These will help you dish out the damage early game with your skills for better harassment.
- Greater Seal of Armor: These will help you tank the damage early game so you can have an easier time harassing and farming.
- Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist: Early on, the harassment mostly comes from auto-attacks rather than abilities, while the inverse is true as the game progresses, hence the MRes/level runes.
- Greater Quintessence of Health: These will help you tank the damage early game so you can have an easier time harassing and farming.
