I could use a good tank mentor for leona and tanking in general. I love the idea of tanking, hell i even love trying to tank. But the problem is im not all that good at it.

So if there is anyone interested in mentoring me tanking i would appreciate it!

Thanks,
Andytori

I've been using Shen, and I may not be the best, but tanking can be taught easily if you're interested.

How to tank:

1. Build tanky items according to enemies.
2. Initiate and take damage.
3. ???
4. Profit.

Tanking isn't all that complicated, just beef up, according to enemies (a lot of magic damage? Force of Nature), initiate fights, die for your carries, absorb damage, push towers, etc.

Read around top guides on this site and solomid.net and leaguecraft for more champion-specific tanking.

All you need to know:

-Beef up yourself with items according to the enemy
-Know when to initiate the fight
-Attract all attention to yourself, so the carries can murder
-Always support you teammate
-Tank tower hits if you are diving, getting out of enemy base, etc.
-If bot lane, Babysit carry. Buy gold/5 items so your carry can farm more than you do


and my leona guide is coming up when its ready. hopefully itll be good :D
