Heading into the third week of September, Leona, the Radiant Dawn, is the top character to play in the free champion rotation of League of Legends.

If you’ve never played Leona, the Radiant Dawn, she truly is one of the top support champions you can have in League of Legends. Not only can she hold her own against top enemy champions, her kit is relatively easy to master.

This week, Leona is free to play in the weekly champion rotation and for good reason. At this point in time, she’s a popular option as support and has a 50.84 percent win rate as per Champion.gg. She can stun enemy champions, create a shield to gain Armor and Magic Resist, dash to opponents, and an ultimate that can stun enemies in an area and empower her to dish out more damage for a few attacks.

Summoners who have never played as Leona should focus on items that have Health, Armor, and Magic Resist. Trust me when I say, Leona is one tanky support champion that doesn’t take damage easily thanks to how defensive her kit is when used properly.

Ideally, if you want items that give you the best chance to win, focus on Boots of Mobility, Eye of the Equinox, Knight’s Vow, Locket of the Iron Solari, Frozen Heart, and Thornmail. When it comes to runes, equip greater Mark of Health (9), Greater Glyph of Magic Resist (9), Greater Seal of Armor (9), and Greater Quintessence of Armor (3).

Make sure to let your fellow ADC and teammates know for the best results, make sure to ban Janna, Taric, or Soraka as they counter Leona pretty hard. If your ADC asks what champion synergizes best with Leona, let them know Miss Fortune, Twitch, and Varus all are viable options.

Overall, Leona is a blast to play with if you prefer tanky support champions that can also be a difference maker once leveled and geared. Leona’s ultimate works great in team fights but whatever you do, don’t look into the light.
