Janna's Runes

Janna will choose gems that interact with her poke ability. "Aery" can both deal extra damage and shield allies. With a relatively large amount of CC and the ability to slow down enemy champions immediately activating "Weakness" gem will increase the damage dealt to enemy champions by 5%. Specifically "Weakness" will interact with "Zephyr" very well.

At the 3rd rune point you can choose "Ultimate Shield" or "Loyalty" to create armor or shield.

"Hunter - Genius" is a rune that grants skill cooldown.

Janna position

Janna is a wind mage who plays a supporting role thanks to her knock-down and slow skill sets. Janna is playing the Dragon position.

How to play Janna

Early Game

Prick enemy champions as much as possible, especially always walking next to your ADC to buff speed as well as armor. With the annoying poke skill "Howling Gale" that will knock up enemy champions, you can increase your accuracy and the element of surprise by leaving the tornado in the bushes.

Mid Game

Always go with the ADC while controlling the ward vision regularly.

Late Game

Prick the enemy squad when entering teamfights. Using "MONSOON" can both heal and push enemies away.
