The Best Runes, Items, and Advice to Dominate Your Competition
We set our Leona build recommendations by analyzing 167,569 recently ranked League of Legends matches with her selected. We only propose the best winrate Leona builds that were built by ranked players enough times for us to suggest them. With so many rounds in our data, we are very confident in our suggested builds.
If you would like more champion specific build advice and strategies, please take a look at our guide farther down on the page. Additionally, to view the top Leona build for a different skill rank, please choose a different one from the dropdown menu above. The calculated Leona builds will update to capture that skill level’s meta.
Best Leona Runes
If you are fighting a mixed enemy team comp, you should really consider grabbing yourself the Aftershock, Font of Life, Bone Plating, Unflinching, Legend: Tenacity, and Last Stand runes. In recent games, she won the greatest fraction of her matches when built with these runes. Yet, if you are playing a more single focused enemy team comp, such as an AD heavy or a CC heavy team, you should instead look further down to view the best Leona runes to defeat your particular set of opponents.

Best Items for Your Leona Build
The best items to incorporate into your Leona build include: Sunfire Aegis, Zeke's Convergence, Randuin's Omen, and Gargoyle Stoneplate. Yet, as with our rune recommendations, you can also get quality, focused, Leona item builds farther down for the specific enemy team composition you are fighting in your ongoing game. Players who included these pieces in their setups had a better win rate than those who used other builds for Leona.

Guide to Playing with Leona
- Shield of Daybreak can be used offensively or defensively. Use it when engaging an enemy carry or to help your allied lane partner escape a gank.
- Zenith Blade shoots an image of Leona's sword dealing damage to units it passes through and if it hits an enemy champion, Leona will dash to the last unit hit. Use this to get Leona to a squishy support in the rear or a carry that's farming effectively in lane.
- Leona can cast Eclipse which provides her a boost of armor and magic resistance for 3 seconds, after which it deals magic damage to enemies around her. Use this during teamfights.
