It's a bit tiresome having a wonderful champion like Leona being pigeon-holed into the "support" role bottom, resulting in being gold starved and making it very hard to have her live up to her full potential.

Are there any changes in the works to free her from this spot? Perhaps, as many have suggested, allowing her to proc her own passive on creeps and thus giving her the option to jungle decently?

I think Leona's in a pretty decent spot. She's very functional in a bottom lane setup, and I don't see the need to give her the added power to allow her to jungle. Furthermore, to do so may compromise what's currently fun about Leona to balance her in this new role - something I think would be a net loss for Leona players.

It's something we talk about regularly, but right now we're not really looking at making changes here.

Indeed.. I suggest you stay away from her...

FAR away.

I agree Morello. Her ganks would be more powerful than Maokai's - an already strong, if not strongest ganking jungler. Leona is nice down bot. Gives me something pretty to look at when I'm last hitting

I think leona's fine, she has a role to play and she does it extremely well.

A support does so much more than just let the AD carry last hit. You're responsible for zoning, warding, protecting...pretty much everything except last hitting, which is arguably one of the most boring aspects of any MOBA that has it.

A new skin would be very welcome though ^__^

It's a bit tiresome to have players think that the support role is a "pidgeonhole" that players are forced into to make the meta work.
