viability is situational, as is itemization and role. regardless, there are optimized roles for leona and it includes support bot going gp5 and transitioning into tanky supportive build.

I used to build frozen mallet + atmogs but then I found that lots of hp doesn't really help you in the long run.
I find that agis of legion and philo stone to be good things to aim for at the start. Then a Triforce is good. If you need to be pure tank then build frozen mallet instead of Tirfoce.

I've always fancied the tri force of tankyness, Warmogs, Force of Nature and Thornmail, but that's mostly out of habit. They are all rather expensive though

A:Yes
B:Yes
C:Personally I build her as a tanky support, philo and hog into abyssal, randuins, shurielias, frozen heart, etc.
D: ALWAYS support bot, her passive is a massive damage boost to the carry in lane (since you cannot proc your passive), and there are very few lanes that can go against the amount of cc she has. If you throw in a carry with cc (ie vayne) people die before they can really react to your initiate. If your carry may have trouble staying in lane you can always take heal, which is fairly good since the recent buff.

A note on my build: I do not build any pure damage items on Leona simply because her passive generates an absurd amount of dps when your team procs it. Therefore I favor utility and survivability.

She doesn't have the DPS to be wasting money on Atmogs/Malle. Your damage comes from your passive, your shield (W), and supporting your teammates.

She's better for support bot. She can help your AD play extremely aggressive and get kills early. She CAN solo top, but she's not going to be racking up a bunch of kills. It will be a farm fest.
