Laning Phase

With this Leona Build she remains powerful throughout the whole game, provided things are going smoothly. Her kit ensures that she can create many opportunities for her botlaner to get kills, stay safe, and farm up.

Leona
Leona’s level two is one of the strongest in the bottom lane. With both
Zenith Blade
Zenith Blade and
Shield of Daybreak
Shield of Daybreak, you can close the gap between yourself and the enemy botlaner or support and stun them with ease. With a level advantage at level two,
Leona
Leona can easily either secure a kill or burn a few Summoner Spells.

Leona
Leona's an excellent roamer thanks to her ultimate. You should be especially vigilant in ganking lanes that have no Summoner Spells or gap-closers. Ganking in conjunction with your jungler is all the more deadly, so try to coordinate with them to pull off successful ganks, and turn those kills into objectives as well.

Team Fights

Team fighting is

Leona
Leona's forte. She excels at initiating fights, either by catching enemies out with her
Zenith Blade
Zenith Blade or stunning several enemy team members with
Solar Flare
Solar Flare. The latter is also a terrific tool for disengaging unfavourable team fights.

If your botlaner is very strong, it might be worthwhile sticking by their side throughout the entire fight and peeling. With

Shield of Daybreak
Shield of Daybreak,
Zenith Blade
Zenith Blade and
Solar Flare
Solar Flare all together, you can keep enemies stun-locked long enough that your botlaner can kill them or flee.

  • Short Story: The Light Bringer **
    The raiders attacked before dawn; fifty wolf-lean men in iron hauberks mantled with strange furs and bearing ash-dulled axes. Their steps were swift as they entered the settlement at the foot of the mountain. These were men who had fought as brothers for years, who lived in the heartbeat between life and death. A warrior in battered scale armor and bearing a heavy-bladed greatsword over his shoulder led them. Beneath his dragon-helm, his face was bearded and raw, burned by a lifetime of war-making under a harsher sun than this.
