Far as I can tell, the new support build is Philo, Kage's, Ward item(don't remember the name... sightstone maybe?), Aegis, and maybe that promote banner thing.
Philo into SR, Kage's into the AP active item, Ward into ruby ward thing, Aegis into the new Aegis upgrade.

Boots are still the same(Ionic, Mercs, Tabi) - looks like the Captain enchantment is the ideal support one.

I actually haven't needed to play a support yet since the update - lots of people are trying it out, so it's less avoided then before. As a result, my thoughts are based on my evaluation of the new item lists.

I go: Boots/2 Wards + Biscuit/Explorer Ward > Sightstone > Crystalline Flask > Ruby Sightstone > Merc Treads > Emblem of Valor > Homeguard Enchant > Aegis > Bulwark. From there, build what the team needs aura-wise.

so far what ive found works best is getting the flask and 3 wards, going philo, boots 1, getting pieces of locket like kindlegem, finishing merc treds, finishing locket, then going for shurelyas and building situationally.

i find the sightstone actually not useful/viable early game. its too expensive and i can only get 2 wards out of it. before the patch i would typically be buying 3 wards each back anyway. its not as if the sightstone saves me from filling an item slot or anything. if i get the sightstone its after laning.

edit - what i meant by the sightstone taking up an item slot was that if i want to ward 3 places and have the sightstone i now have to take up 2 item slots for that instead of the just 1 slot for 3 wards

I actually won't get the sightstone at all. I find just buying wards works better for me since I like to have complete vision.

i still consistently find myself very low on gold, even when i do very well in lane. i think i have to get kages now too in my build.

If you're still having gold problems, may I ask if you're running GP/10 Quints? I did before the update and still do, still works and helps just as well.

This is a waste.

You really should be starting with boots on Leona because she needs to make her plays early game to stay relevant in mid game and beyond.

Typically on Leona I run armor reds and yellows, MR blues, and GP10 quints.

Yes, I'd recommend switching it up to GP10 Quints, I run them on every support page I have.
