Maokai is much closer to Leona in role sorta like how Malphite is much closer to Amumu in role.
I think you still failed to see the point I was making, I wasnt being serious on how alike mumu and mao were, I was pointing out that talking about other champs being better means nothing in this post. This post is not about who is better at jungling then leona but how to jungle her in the first place. Nothing more then that.

The problem with Leona jungle is the same problem she's always had as anything other than support.

Her ability damage is balanced around her passive's damage, but she has no direct access to that damage alone.

Her ganks are really strong, unfortunately, her slow jungle clear speed due to having no access to 40-50% of her on paper damage potential when alone means she'd easy to counter jungle and would falls ridiculously behind to any other jungler with better speed.

Longest running and most informative/rational Leona discussion on the forum.

I'm honestly surprised it hasn't gotten a single red comment yet.

I understand what you are saying, and in my original post I stated that she CAN jungle which is what this thread was originally about. I only made a suggestion that even though she can jungle, she doesn't do it as well as some others who would fill a similar role in team fighting. I don't think there was anything wrong with making that suggestion, in fact suggestions from other players, and trying out new champions is how players get better. It's very possible that I was suggesting to the OP that if he wants to play a jungle champion similar to Leona that may be a bit stronger in the jungle then Maokai is a good choice. Nothing more than that, nothing less.

I have been jungling leona with great success recently. I run attack speed and ad in offense(9 points) and 21 points in defense. My runes are ad reds armor yellows mr/l blues and ms quints, R>w>q>e I take w q then e at levels 1-3 and pretty much just gank as much as possible. I buy spirit of the ancient golem mobility boots and frozen fist as my core, generally sunfire abyssal and warmogs or some other tank items end game

ive jungled leona alot in ranked and i run alot more utility than other people are suggesting. instead of going stone builds you build into wriggles to help your clear time and get movement speed to help you move faster and gank more often. leona has what she needs to clear even if its slow but you jungle her for ganks so the best way would to make sure her ganks are good and frequent

Hybrid pen Marks, AD quints, armor and MR for rest of runes. Go down offensive tree getting both AP and AD pen and the rest in defense to stay in jungle. She does a lot of dmge early and you can get tanky fast. It works.

Maybe they changed this but I remember Leona's passive not being proc'd by her own attacks...

you are right... however IF you build ad tank items instead of going straight AP tank items you will be more of a threat and clear jungle a lot faster..
