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

You get this chick with a huge shield and sword, covered in gold. Anybody looking at her, that doesn't know who she is, will immediately think of her as a bruiser.

She is also covered in golden armor, which makes her look like she has Gold. But ironically, as a bot lane support, she has the most gold-starved role in the game!

But why is she a support? Because her passive screams to put her in a duo lane, otherwise its a waste of a good passive. And because she is balanced around the passive, if she is put anywhere else, she will be at a disadvantage.

I would like her to be able to compete against Diana, whether it be in mid, top, or the jungle, but how should this be done? Simple!

A Sheen/Hunters Machete on Leona now procs her passive! Why not Riot

Let me be able to solo lane/jungle Leona.. Riot pls.

You have no idea how to play leona do you? yes it would be nice for her to proc her passive too but she can still jungle fine and solo lane

I agree but here's the thing, she's much stronger with a team with all that CC, the passive encourages teamwork.

BUT:

She should be able to detonate it with auto attacks, nothing else, then I agree.

From the other hint thread, I garnered that the next adc was going to be a girl in ridiculous amounts of Armour who's weapon is a bird. Just my interpretation of the hints, and it would go along with why he'd think the op wouldn't like it (fully-armored ranged ad carry who isn't a tank or bruiser!)

While that is fine (especially in teamfights, which is where she is meant to be), it means she can't really go anywhere but bottom lane.

You could go to the old days and run two tanks or something, then it'd work. But she still needs an ally, so it has to be bottom, unless we start running two top or two mid.
Ganks are a thing, ya know. While her passive, for CS'ing, is useless in a solo lane, if you have a high-damage jungler like Evelynn a Leona top could be extremely effective.

Except in order to get an assist through her passive, she has to hit the target with a spell. Which, y'know, would give her an assist anyway.

Her passive is designed to give her an extra layer of "hey, punch this guy!" in the form of a glowing mark and extra damage for the other person doing the hitting, while (subtly) boosting her base ability damage in teamfights. It also works very well in 2v2 encounters, either as a support or (less reliably) during ganks for/by Leona.

Buying Sheen seems a horribly clunky mechanic, and just letting her proc her own debuff would probably make her devastating in top lane thanks to her CC and durability. Though the lack of sustain and escapes might hurt, her huge gap closer makes her less vulnerable to poke than someone like Darius. And she would do pretty darn well in the jungle, with Amumu-level CC and better damage for ganks.
