Also dps janna = fail
Crowstorm does damage which one would imagine has a less friendly AP ratio than a heal . . .in fact, over the full duration it has a 2.0 ratio.

No matter how you slice it the AP ratios on Janna are garbage. BTW, I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not so I just responded as if you were serious.


DPS janna is not = fail. There's no difference between a DPS janna and a Mana/AP Janna except what she gets to do between tornado and zephyr casts (AKA whether or not she's useless during that time period).

Both can keep their target in range indefinitely, via slows (and in Janna's case, extreme speed). . .Both auto attack, with a significant range.

Ashe has a powerful, semi-long cooldown stun with a nice damage component.

Janna has a line-based knockup and a targeted damage + slow on a short cooldown, an aoe knock back + heal, and a shield.

How is that MORE situational than Ashe? Just because the point of comparison (ashe) has less going on as far as capabilities doesn't mean she's less situational. Less versatile, perhaps. . .

EDIT: although I can't argue with really fun

Early game...and dps character just messes you up.

Please do not use this strategy :|
Tell that to agip33.

Thanks for this. I've been doing really well with DPS Janna this will give me some new ideas to play with.

DPS Janna works but I rather play AP

Howling Gale 0.75
Zephyr 0.8
Eye of the Storm 0.8
Monsoon 0.35 (each second, 1.4 over 4 seconds)

Those are bad ap ratios? rofl

When you consider how **** the base damage on Howling Gale and Zephyr is, that's a different story.

Why no lifesteal? I'd get a Vampiric Scepter in there at the very least.

I've never even spawned as Janna after 250 games played. I think I'll try this in a bot match tonight. Thanks

This sounds so f(cked up that it might actually work. Will test it out for the lulz.
