Lets now start with our OP Immortal/Max Tenacity Leona Build guide and how to win games easier than ever!
Our Full Tenacity build is a combination of Sustain and item effects that will give your team everything they need to be victorious no matter the situation. With this build Leona become a really strong from early to full late game Tank/Support Champion. You will be able to tank an insanely big amount of damage against any Champion and help your team with what they need MOST, someone to do the engages, tank all the damage, CC all the enemies and win every single team fight while staying always alive!
Check out what our Max Tenacity/Immortal Leona Build can do here:
For me Leona is by far the STRONGEST support (and not only) champion, the reason is simple and most people can't understand that. Leona has everything you need, 3 type of stuns (and slow if you miss the center of your ultimate), damage and INSANELY BIG SUSTAIN from both AD and AP type damage cause of your W and Aftershock also her passive Sunlight allow your teammates to do an extra amount of damage FOR FREE!
But why to choose to play with the Full Tenacity build? Cause this build use everything Leona has and take it to the next level. Leona always is a champion that will do the "engage" that means you will go IN FIRST, so you will probably die first if you got stunned while trying to secure your combos, this build will give you up to 75% Tenacity, this means that anything that will hit you, stun or slow will be reduced by 75%, the 1 second stun will become ~0.3 seconds, sounds good? Trust me it’s INSANE.
And if you Want to Learn MORE about how Tenacity works, then be sure to check out our League Masterclass about Tenacity and learn new things:
Leona Cooldowns for her skills are pretty low, you can use your Shield of Daybreak W and Zenith Blade tons of times in each team fights, what you need to secure that? NOT TO BE STOPPED by anything and to sustain an INSANELY big damage while doing that.
So in full build you will have the following stats:
4500+ HP, 50+ Ability haste, 65-75% Tenacity and a really big amount of Armor and Magic resist. But it’s not just that, cause of our runes choices you will have an even bigger sustain cause of Triumph this will give you % of your missing health back after each kill/assist you take, this means you will go in, fight as long as you want, kill 1 or 2 and get back again for the rest 3 and if that is not enough, we will have most of the times Warmog's Armor passive effect to heal us back to full hp within few seconds out of combat!
This build will make your favorite Leona to be STRONGER than EVER and will secure your wins even in the hardest games that the SUPPORT will make the difference.
Lets talk about the combinations and why they are worth:
For the Support build version
Resolve + Precision
Aftershock One of the most powerful runes for Immortal type Support champions, this rune will give you a big amount of armor and magic resist after doing CC to your enemy, for Leona it means with 3/4 of her skills! The reason we are choosing this over Grasp of the Undying is cause as support you need to GO IN INSTANT and you wont have time to be in combat for 4 seconds to fully use the effect right away! The same apply as JUNGLER as well, if you are Top or MID, you will choose to follow the second build rune version that we will describe below!
Font of Life Bonus HP heal to the allies that will focus your CC target, this will apply for all of your teammates and it will be a very powerful support effect that its heal will also be multiplied by 20% cause of the power of Redemption
and another 5-15% if you choose to play with Revitalize over Unflinching
Conditioning Another useful and sustain pick, this is a MUST pick for our build, cause it will give a big amount of permanent armor/magic resist after 12mins of the game!
Unflinching Our Full Tenacity build needs this, 10% bonus Tenacity and Slow Resist that goes up to 30% while being in low HP! Something that will make you an absolute MONSTER the more you fight while avoiding any kind of CC or Slow Effects!
Revitalize This rune is super powerful and finally will be an option for Leona as well, cause now we got a shield effect with Fimbulwinter and a Heal effect with Redemption, making both of these effects to increase by 5-15%!!
Triumph This will give you back % missing health, %max Hp Health and bonus gold of each Assist/kill you will be doing in the game. Super useful cause you will need it after engaging 1v5 all the time!
Legend: Tenacity The MUST PICK rune for our build as Support, this will give you total 20% Tenacity at full stacks! Together with Unflinching Mercury's Treads and Elixir of Iron you will have the MAX TENACITY and the ability to go all in and take zero CC from any champion!
Note: If you decide to go for the Iceborn Gauntlet Immortal/Max Tenacity Build Version then you will also have bonus % Tenacity/Slow Resist with each item you will complete, making the numbers to go to the ABSOLUTE LIMITS, no matter the CC or SLOW effect, you will avoid it or reduce to almost ZERO and if you are lucky and get also chemdrakes these numbers will go even higher!!
For the Top/Mid or Jungle (As Jungler You can play with both versions but choose Aftershock instead)
Resolve + Domination
Grasp of the Undying While being in combat you will have the ability to do % of your max HP as dmg and also heal of your % of your HP plus 7 bonus health each time you activating it, that means that you will become stronger and stronger the more you fight!
Demolish You can also go for Font of Life but if you want a more Solo approach then go for this rune instead to do bonus damage to the towers and get them faster in order to move to other lanes and start destroying all!!
Second Wind gain health regeneration equal to 3 (+ 4% of your missing health) over 10 seconds that together with Doran's Shield will make you have so much sustain from early till late game that you will be insanely powerful just cause of this combination of rune-item!
Revitalize Bonus 5-15% HEALS and SHIELDS, a must to have rune, that working incredible good with your Spirit Visage and Redemption that will help you survive against anything and if you got a support with a shield-heal like Janna Yuumi etc. will make you even STRONGER!!
For the secondary runes tree we got two different options!
Cheap Shot Bonus True dmg after your CC, that means you will activate this rune non stop with Q-E-R making you use also true damage on your engages!
Taste of Blood If you want better sustain, then this is your option, bonus HP each 20seconds while damaging your enemies, this amount will multiplied by 40% cause of Revitalize and Spirit Visage
Ultimate Hunter Bonus Ability haste for your Ultimate, our Solar Flare is one of our biggest weapons for our Immortal Leona, now we will use it FASTER and destroy them more EASIER while having a bigger impact in teamfights!!
And also Precision:
Triumph Missing HP Heal plus bonus gold for every kill/assist, you think the heal value is low for this rune, but in reality you will be gaining more than 500-600 HP per kill/assist, cause you will multiply this heal by Revitalize and Spirit Visage
Presence of Mind If you feel like having mana problems, then this rune is for you, giving you bonus mana regeneration while damaging your enemies!
Legend: Tenacity Bonus 20% Tenacity, making you have a total tenacity of 60%+ that will let you avoid ANY CC while fighting 1v5! One of the most important stats in the game that will also let you the option of going for Plated Steelcaps instead of Mercury's Treads to counter both CC and Basic attackers with lots of ON-hit effects!
If you want to understand how Heals, Shields and Regeneration works and why we are choosing these runes over anything else, we got our league masterclass that will help you:
So what these runes will give you, no matter if you choose the Solo Lane or Support versions? Insanely big sustain with combination of Armor/Magic resist bonuses, Tenacity that will make you walk your way to the team fights and useful runes effects that will make you unkillable!
Leona will always going to be one of the strongest champions in the game and with our Balorian’s style we made her EVEN MORE POWERFUL!
Now that you fully understood how to choose your runes, it's time to start understanding our Items!
This explanation will be for both Support and SOLO(Top/Mid or even Jungle) Roles, cause only the runes will be different (Check above) while item build will be the same only with small differences that you will for sure fully understand on your own as you continue reading!!
As support, you will always start with Relic Shield and Health Pots its the strongest support item for our build. And also you will help your allies last hit better and give you much more gold as well! Overall the support items are the most gold efficient items in the game, they are getting upgraded on their own while you just need to last hit creeps for your ADC!
As Laner, you will start with Doran's Shield, this item is one of the MOST GOLD Efficient items in the game, will give you everything that you need to survive early and together with the Second Wind you will have a double regeneration effect to keep yourself healthy while fighting!
At your first back you will focus to have 1000-1150 Gold, and you will buy Bami's Cinder and a Refillable Potion that you will keep almost all game long, what I love about the new mythic change is that you can buy any item you want and fully use the stats for your own benefit to be something MORE than just a support!
Remember, you can also get Tear of the Goddess when you got the chance either before finishing Bami's Cinder or afterwards! Cause we need to start stacking it in order to have the full stacks after we start buying our 4th item! So when to buy Tear of the Goddess is up to you, if you think you can stack it after you complete your first item, then go for it, if not, then buy it as early as possible without of course changing the core build order!!
After getting Bami's Cinder the next part item that you will focus on getting is going to be Bramble Vest this item will give you armor and also an amazing heal reduction effect to the attackers, super powerful especially if you are playing against heavy heal type champions like Soraka Yuumi etc.
Now you got the Following options, either finish the Sunfire Aegis and gain the super OP stats plus burn Effects
Start building your Mythic Items and finish Sunfire Aegis afterwards!
For Mythic Items you got:
1. Jak'Sho, The Protean One of the most powerful, if not the Strongest for Immortal Builds, this item will give you everything that you need to overpower all, HP, Armor, Mr, Ability haste and a passive effect that will increase your armor/mr even further while also giving you a HUGE amount of health back from all the enemy champions around you!
Plus bonus Armor and Mr for each legendary item you are finishing, something that Leona will be greatly benefit from cause of how her W works!
2. Iceborn Gauntlet another powerful choice, that is going to be used for Support, jungle and Sol Lanes (Top/Mid) roles as well, if you need to counter high Mobile champions or team comps with lots of CC types of skills, it will give you HP, Armor, Ability Haste, bonus damage after you using your skills plus a HUGE (of the biggest in the game) slow effect and damage reduction that will let you lock down and make sure that no matter who you got against you will NEVER ESCAPE! As you can imagine, for a support, this ability will be the most important, cause for example to make the enemy ad carry to have a 70% slow effect on while also getting stunned non-stop will make them USELESS!!
Plus, for each legendary item you will gain Tenacity and Slow resist and make yourself even more UNSTOPPABLE the later the game goes!!
The next item that we will finish after our Sunfire Aegis and either of our Mythic Items, is going to be Thornmail an item too powerful to ignore, not only you will have armor-hp and repel damage, but you will also have a second heal reduction effect while CC the target that will reduce the heal effects from the enemy by 40%, making sure that champions with high healing won't have a chance to survive!
As Next item we will start building one of the MOST OP items that exist for our Immortal builds, this will be Winter's Approach a super cheap item that will give you HP, Tons of MANA to spam your skills, %Mana to HP effect and NON-STOP SHIELDS every time you are slowing (R) or CC (Q-E) your enemies, that means in the entire teamfight, cause you will always have something to CC your enemies with (3 total skills)
Now that we finished our 4 Core Items that will be Sunfire Aegis, Jak'Sho, The Protean or Iceborn Gauntlet, Thornmail and Winter's Approach
we got the following items for our FINAL IMMORTAL Leona FORM:
If you are a support, then you already got the sup item to fill the last item spot
so you won't be able to buy something from the items below EXCEPT if you sell it to go into the full late game with another option!
1. Spirit Visage, this item especially while having Winter's Approach fully stacked is a must to have, you will have HP, Magic Resist, HP Regain and the most INSANE passive effect of an item in the entire game, 25% BONUS HEALS and SHIELDS as stats. To understand right now what that means, you got 5-15% Bonus heals and shields with Revitalize, 25% With Spirit Visage making you go for up to 40% Heals and Shields making you the absolute Immortal!
2. Warmog's Armor One of the Most powerful items into this game, giving you a huge amount of HP, ability haste and HP regen plus the ability to always be full hp if you are out of combat with almost a fountain heal speed, making it useful if you want to continue fighting non-stop even after you left with 1hp!
3. Demonic Embrace Another powerful item that we can use to carry games easily, AP, HP, %HP to AP effect and also a %Max HP Damage effect that will help you melt any kind of enemies against you!
4. Gargoyle Stoneplate Especially now that we got the Jak'Sho, The Protean Mythic, this item becomes even stronger, you will have Armor, Mr, Ability haste, BONUS ARMOR AND MR while fighting PLUS a HUGE SHIELD to survive any kind of burst damage from the enemy team, making you reach 500+ Armor and 400+ Magic Resist stats easily!!
5. Redemption An item that lot of people think only meant for Support, while it will give you super cheap stats with a very powerful active effect, Ability haste, mana regen, hp, bonus HEALS and SHIELDS plus a huge amount of heal for you and your alllies while damaging the enemy team with a % TRUE DAMAGE AOE EFFECT!
So for Leona Top/MID/Jungle the build will look like these:
Sunfire Aegis Jak'Sho, The Protean Thornmail Mercury's Treads Winter's Approach Warmog's Armor Elixir of Iron
Sunfire Aegis Jak'Sho, The Protean Thornmail Mercury's Treads Winter's Approach Gargoyle Stoneplate Elixir of Iron
Sunfire Aegis Thornmail Mercury's Treads Winter's Approach Demonic Embrace Warmog's Armor Elixir of Iron
And for Leona Support the build will look like these:
Sunfire Aegis Iceborn Gauntlet Thornmail Mercury's Treads Winter's Approach Bulwark of the Mountain Elixir of Iron
Or if you choose to not play with Winter's Approach to go for this Full Build version:
Sunfire Aegis Iceborn Gauntlet Thornmail Mercury's Treads Redemption Bulwark of the Mountain Elixir of Iron
And this is the complete Max Tenacity/Immortal Leona build to overpower ANY KIND of enemy, no matter the role and most importantly while having tons of fun!!
