Guide to Countering Leona

  • Leona counters enemy carries. With 3 hard CC abilities, she is able to lock-down one or many enemy champs. This is especially effective against close range champions that will be easy for her to reach.
  • Leona's Eclipse deals damage around her at the end of the 3 second duration. Move away from her during this to avoid taking damage.
  • You can avoid getting stunned by Solar Flare if you move out of the center quickly.
