Hey all,

I just bought Leona and am trying to figure out why it says she is AD but her abilities are ap?

I like to build her as super tank but I want to get the most out of her w.

Should I build some ap? or AD? why does it say she is ad??

Thanks!

Play Alister, instead.

Most 'tanks' abilities scale with AP but you don't build for it. Leona can go AP and do meh damage, but her stuns help that out. You may not burst like, for example, Ahri but you can lock someone down for so long, you make up for it.

Im thinking about getting trinity force + Health that should do well.

Maybe I try Alistar.

Thanks

Her ratios don't make AP worth it usually. If I do pick up an AP item (and I usually only pick up one), it's Abyssal or Hextech Sweeper. After full CDR, try picking up a Frozen Mallet.

If you build Triforce, you're giving up a lot of tankiness, and you won't be able to build the CDR you need to be relevant.

You're a CC tank with mediocre ratios. Build tanky CDR.

This is just me personally but..

R > W > Q > E

I start with Boots + Kindle Gem + 2 HP Pot + 2 Mana Pot
CDR Boots
Shurelias Reverie
Sheen
Aegis
Iron Solari Trinket
Frozen Mullet
Trinity Force

The items can be swapped for other depending on the importance at the moment, for example if your team has good damage I would save sheen for later.

For Runes I do Red and Blue MR, Yellow are HP/Level

Defense Masteries and Utility, getting all movement speed enhancements.

I use her W and Q For active mitigation rather than getting huge MR and armor items, grabbing utility and HP items instead

REMEMBER if you get TF or sheen, you need to space out your ability use to get the most of it.

Never tried TF on Leona, probably never will. Her role is not to do damage, but to enable damage.

R>W>Q>E
Heal / Garrison
22 Defense / 8 Offense (to get 4%CDR)
Defensive runes / movespeed quints

Priorities are, as has been said, CDR and health because resist comes from W, runes, and masteries.

Generally, I go CDR boots, which combined with runes and masteries brings me to 30% CDR or so. A kindlegem fills the rest.

This lets me rush a mallet, which, with stuns and whatnot makes it impossible for most champs to ever get away from me. Free food for my teammates.

Build order:
Phage + pot for windmill
brown boots if I die
giants belt / CDR boots if I don't
mallet
kindlegem
wardens mail (that slow proc is incredible)
negatron cloak

That is my core - the rest is situational (FH, Thornmail, Veil, QSS, w/e is needed). Sometimes I finish Randuin, sometimes not.

In any case, I usually run something like 4/8/24 while shutting down targets and defending top like a boss. Leona is amazingly fun, and is a huge force multiplier for a team.

build CDR. She's not there for damage she's there for disruption and focusing a single target quickly.
