Hey GD, I main support. Mostly soraka,sona. I have heard and seen alot of people playing leona support. I was thinking about saving up for her. What are her pro's and con's?
Thanks.

She is a kill-lane support, as opposed to Sona and Soraka's I'm going to hang out and poke the **** out of you while keeping my mate a live. In my opinion, Leona has fewer room for errors, but is fairly easy to pick up. With a well-timed gank or just by yourself, she can keep them in place long enough for your ally to pick up the kill. Definitely worth owning, though.

Edit: lol they censored "krap?"

leona is a good bursty tank support. Play her tank and your team will love you for the AoE and stuns she drops. be warned she is a skill shot champ. the 2 you mentioned earlier are target champs so watch yourself.

Definitely this. Build her tanky and be prepared to die so that your team may live. Also, I don't know if I'd call Sona a target champ

I wack defense Masteries on her and try for some early health items too just so she can soak up a little bit more damage.

E>W>Q maxing her W first, her q last. That's just what I do.

She's sort of like hard mode Taric with more CC, more tankiness, and no heals. She's really all-in. There is no sending a stun by carrier pigeon with her and letting MF drop bullets on them from afar. (Well, there's her ult, but that has a longer cooldown.)

So... everything you do with her has to be worth it, or you're kind of screwed. If you can handle that, then she can be good, but there are times when you want to stun and run, but you can't because you're not Taric. In the end, Taric is more likely to be good in more situations, but Leona can be a little better in some situations - usually ones where you have to lock down one priority target for three seconds.
