Keystone Rune

  • AftershockAftershock : When you engage, you're kinda invulnerable until you press your 2Eclipse 
  • This will help reducing LeonaLeona 's damage taken and also a burst of damage around her after 2.5 seconds that deals magic damage but scale with your max HP.
  • Font of LifeFont of Life : This rune is good for a lot of tanks to give your allies free lifesteal but it can be countered with anti-heal so... I honestly like thicc LeonaLeona better.

Domintaion Rune

Resolve Rune

  • ConditioningConditioning : Good against a team with a good team comp. Since you're gonna need both AR (Armor) and MR (Magic Resist) against them.
  • Hunter TitanHunter Titan : Good against a team with high crowd control (cc) to lock you down in a place.
  • Adaptive CarapaceAdaptive Carapace : Good against a team with a bad team composition.
  • LoyaltyLoyalty : Low value. Don't take it. You want LeonaLeona to be thicc so she can engage and ignore people's damage

Inspiration Rune

  • Hunter GeniusHunter Genius : Cooldown Reduction is ALWAYS good for perma CC
  • PathfinderPathfinder : Good if you roams a lot.
  • Pack HunterPack Hunter : Ima chase you boi and I'm gonna be rich AF! jk. Good for bonus movement speed and a little bit of bonus gold.

Tips & Tricks

  • DON'T BE A FRIGGIN' COWARD! You're a LeonaLeona with THICC @$$ ARMOUR! JUST DO IT! You need a mindset, "Ima make them suffer the whole game"! Be Aggressive (Once you hit lv3)! TRADE! TRADE! TRADE!
  • Lane Dominance : You gotta conquer the brush in your lane. If the enemy is trying to get inside, MAKE THEM SUFFER! If they warded it, use your sweeper. If they randomly cast abilities in the brush, dodge it or MAKE THEM SUFFER for it!
  • When tower diving, take the tower aggro before you let your team in or else your team will die for nothing.
  • Keep CCing your enemies! Let your team do the damage especially with bonus damage they git from your WeaknessWeakness andSunlight
  • Freeze the wave for the team!
  • During your Zenith BladeZenith Blade 's animation, you can also cast another 1 of your abilites including your Ult Solar FlareSolar Flare
  • If your 3 Zenith BladeZenith Blade is hit by multiple targets, LeonaLeona will dash to the last one hit.
  • Only the last one hit by your 3 Zenith BladeZenith Blade is rooted.
  • Your 3 Zenith BladeZenith Blade is easily hit whenever the enemy is Auto Attacking and casting abilities with delays like JhinJhin 's Deadly FlourishDeadly Flourish , JinxJinx 's Zap!Zap! , and AsheAshe 's VolleyVolley .
