Best Leona Runes
If you are trying to beat a well-mixed enemy team comp, you should really consider grabbing yourself the Aftershock, Demolish, Conditioning, Overgrowth, Legend: Tenacity, and Presence of Mind runes. In recent matches, she won the greatest percentage of her matches when built with these runes. However, if you are fighting a more homogenous enemy team comp, such as an AP heavy or a crowd control focused team, you should instead glance below to view the best Leona runes to win your particular round.

Best Items for Your Leona Build
The best items to include in your Leona build are: Locket of the Iron Solari, Abyssal Mask, Zeke's Convergence, and Vigilant Wardstone. Moreover, similar to our rune recommendations, you can also find great, dedicated, Leona item builds farther down for the specific enemy team comp you are fighting in your current game.

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.
