How to play Leona

Leona tends to attack and apply control effects, not protect and block damage for ADC. Therefore, to be most suitable, choose an ADC champion with high damage and fast movement speed.

Leona’s goal at the beginning of the match is to reach level 2 early. As soon as I reach level 2, I often hide in the bushes both to keep Leona’s health just enough before rushing to attack the enemy champion and to create surprise so that the enemy cannot avoid the skill “Zenith Blade”.

If so, the soldiers are too close to the enemy tower and have no chance to attack. I will abandon the lane and look for gank opportunities in other lanes right from level 2.

Before the main battle, Leona’s mission is to place wards to control vision. As long as “Solar Flare” can capture many enemy generals, your team is sure to win the overall teamfight.

Leona pros and cons

Pros

Good resistance.

Many control effects.

The ultimate slows and stuns a wide area.

Strong early right from level 2.

Can roam right from level 2.

Cons

Cannot protect ADC as much as other support.

Having difficulty confronting ranged champions.

It's easy to be lonely if you choose the wrong time to rush into the enemy team.
