Leona shouldn't have been designed as a support champion. We need to fix her passive.

Thresh, by looks alone, looks incredibly boring.

The other supports I have that I play in other roles are Nunu, Morg, Kayle, and Nid. These came out before the role of support was fully accepted, and thus now that the meta MUST HAVE a support, I feel that the general diversity of champions' play styles have suffered. Here's hoping I can enjoy jungleing with this spectral masterpiece as well =)

Considering they implemented more items in direct correlation to jungling, maybe they will listen to the voice of the people, but that is only if they feel necessary to buff Leona. I would think she is partially off of Riot's plans, based on how many champions they are releasing. Perhaps more item/passive interactions will be added as season three progresses?

Leona's not a support champion, but plays the support role - there's a difference.

Leona's design is to be a tank and initiator. She is not designed to do respectable damage, and I think it would muddy what's unique about the character. The state of where she's valuable puts her into bottom lane for optimization.

If the live team is OK with it, I have no problem seeing her jungle, but I would be opposed to seeing her be a damage dealer.

Why not just allow her to only proc her passive for minions and monsters only then? Not champions, then she still retains needing a team member to fully dish out her damage and gives her a little wiggle room in the meta.

Her in the jungle would be okay I think because the ganks would be really good, but tanks shouldn't have crazy dps so her damage to champions is fine with the amount of CC i think she has
