I don't like her, don't play her in ranked. She is bad end game tank, and is only really good if your team needs a tank. Her damage output just isn't there, so any skirimishes in the jungle are eh. If she gets counter ganked while coming to gank not good either. Much more strong junglers than leona. She should definately just fade into support.

He even stole my blue, so I had to take the time to get over to his blue. I run attack speed marks and move quints.
plz allow her to proc her passive on monsters

The way I learned to do it is go 21/9/0 straight down the AD tree and go AD quints/reds. Start Q, and machete+5 pots, you AA the big creep > Q > click the creep again for an instant auto attack and that's your triple Q for crazy burst at low level. Take W at lvl 2 and repeat at the other camp, get E, go gank. Build a SotAG and a tiamat (don't make hydra til like super late game if fed) and boots and you're set to build whatever other tanky/hp items you need. Once you get a tiamat your farming speeds up a lot and a Q combo and tiamat proc will clear out small camps, and a W will help speed up buff camps/reduce damage taken to no more than your SotAG will regen. Its actually pretty straightforward, very similar to Nocturne imo.

It obviously depends on your team composition, and picks. That being said, her ability to lock people down and soak damage is insane. When you discount her damage though, make sure you're remembering her passive. While it doesn't show up on her damage chart at end game, it's a substantial amount of damage. With the emergence of carry supports like Zyra, she makes a lot of sense.

Leona jungle is a beast! Try building an Iceborn Gauntlet on her, it rocks. Also, her clearing time is actually pretty fast after Madreds. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmFwPgzK0-M

when i play jungle leona i go spirit of the elder lizard into spirit of the ancient golem with armor boots and run flat ad quints and reds with a 21/9/0 page. Her clear speed is slow-medium and her ganks are insane. for summoners i go exhaust smite
end game items i consider are sunfire cape if i can get it early, spirit visage, abyssal scepter if I am doing well but need MR, and randiuns
brofist would be a solid item too and I have been playing around with tiamat at the suggestion of another avid leona jungler.

Her clear times are fine. My major problem when I've done it - enemies are so scared of her ganks they play ultra passive and all the lanes are so pushed that you can't pull off a safe gank.
