Doran's Ring, after this I prefer going for Rod of Ages to boost survivability and AP a bit. If I were get further I go for Zhonya's for Ap and Survivability.

Sometimes I replace Boots of Swiftness with either Boots of Mobility or Mercury Threads.

Occasionally if team lacks survivability and we have no real tank I might pick up Aegis.

I'm more curious how people prioritize the skills. I usually start with Howling Gale or Shield, maximize Gale or Shield first, and Zephyr last.

If the game goes past 9999 minutes, replace a Doran's Ring with a Banshee's Veil.

Zirun #1 Janna trust him.
Skill order would be R>E>W>Q. Get 1 Q at level 4 or 2. Howling Gale should only be used for the pop-up, not for damage.

I think your skill order depends on your lane and the enemy team, if you're laning with an ashe or trist, I would say go for shield, for almost anything else I would go for tornado first, zephyr second if your team lacks slows or you're getting chased a lot

Skills depend on what you need at the time. Sometimes you need extra ranks in tornado if you're constantly being pushed to the tower, sometimes you want to max out zephyr first if you want to poke and harass, but 90% of the time, maxing shield is the smart thing to do.

I'm not the best player, but I'd consider myself pretty good and Janna is one of my favorite champs since she came out and was considered to be Eve-tier; I play her way more than I should.

This.

Most of the time, you shouldn't even have gold for more than this, because you really shouldn't be taking any creep kills from anyone else on the team (Zirun averages like 28 cs a game). Early-game you should focus on zoning the enemies in your lane (and Janna *should* be in the duo lane), and letting your lane-mate basically free-farm. Mid- and late-game if there are lanes that need to be cleared, you should let your allies do it unless you need to be there to help stop a push.

The only time you'll have enough money for things beyond this is if you somehow randomly picked up a kill or two during a team-fight because your tornado happened to hit someone at low health.

Catalyst, mejai's, boots.

That is the generic trinity of items for support champions. You can't go wrong. Janna, Sona, Morgana, etc all start out with this trinity and it works amazingly well.

Upgrade to RoA or Banshee's, get Soul Shroud for the CD reduction and team aura, then focus on building more auras like Aegis of the Legion or whatever your team needs at the moment. That's all Janna needs to be successful.
