Leona Matchups Overview

Leona General information

Leona tips and tricks

You can use your AA Shield of DaybreakQ AA combo to quickly destroy wards to deny vision.

Try to keep the minion wave even or closer to your side of the map as it will be very hard for you to engage in the early game if your lane is constantly pushing.

If you’re unable to get kills in the bottom lane post 6, don’t be afraid to roam and help other lanes. As your Ultimate Solar FlareR is a very good tool that can help you snowball, whenever it’s up, try to roam and help your mid lane.
