Hello, AlexHawks here. 

All of the helpless souls who are searching for help. All of the hungry souls who are looking for more food. All of the pig souls that are begging for skin. And all of the silly people who believe in souls. Welcome.

Welcome to my blog post, where I, AlexHawks, am about to teach you many things about how you, people, and you, normal beings can use this Knowledge I will provide you to play certain champions in unconventional roles, as, say, Akali. Although after all of this Knowledge provided to you, you might feel a little fat.

Now, putting silly, not understandable to majority jokes aside. Although as this might be simple to you, kind Sir, this might as well be as difficult as Mathematics. Let's start. (This blog is a proper blog post, not another champion concept which only makes moderators Chase after you. Up to 999kms)

LeonaSquare Leona

LeonaSquare Leona is one of the mid laners, that can provide you with really strong burst potential with no items, or with very little amount of them. Zenith Blade Zenith Blade and Eclipse Eclipse both have 40% AP scaling, while Solar Flare Solar Flare has 80% AP scaling. Shield of Daybreak Shield of Daybreak applies on hit effects such as Lich Bane item Lich BaneSolar Flare Solar Flare has a range of 1200 which should make you able to execute your burst on your target easier. You should Max Eclipse Eclipse first for it deals the most damage, and provides you with armor/magic resist, or simply not to get Cold. Maxing Zenith Blade Zenith Blade next is a good idea, 'cause it deals more damage than Shield of Daybreak Shield of Daybreak, and costs less mana at higher levels.

Who is Leona good against in the mid lane?

She is best against squishies like LuxSquare Lux KatarinaSquare Katarina or TalonSquare Talon 'cause it's easy to lock them up with all of your cc.

Who should you avoid while playing her mid?

AP LeonaSquare Leona should have problems against such champions as ZedSquare ZedAhriSquare Ahri or EzrealSquare Ezreal or any champion with high mobility, because they could simply kite her.

What should you buy as a Mid Leona?


SonaSquare Sona

SonaSquare Sona is a really strong mid laner, even Bronze mages use it. It does have really good Stats. Power Chord Power Chord deals bonus magic damage with your autoattack , and if you have Hymn of Valor Hymn of Valor activated, it deals double damage, up to 384 bonus magic damage. It works well with magic penetration. Hymn of Valor Hymn of Valor has a 50% AP scaling. Her heal, Aria of Perseverance Aria of Perseverance, has a 25% AP scaling, so building AP helps her sustain more. Song of Celerity Song of Celerity has an ap scaling, 2% MS per 100 AP. Crescendo Crescendo has a 50% AP scaling, as well as high base damage, and it stuns opponents. You should max Hymn of Valor Hymn of Valor first, since it deals the most damage, and you will be maxing Aria of Perseverance Aria of Perseverance second.


Who is Sona good against in the mid lane?

Medium range champions such as RyzeSquare Ryze or SorakaSquare Soraka should have a problem with you, as well as champions with no sustain like MalphiteSquare Malphite.

Who should you avoid while playing her mid?

AP SonaSquare Sona should have problems against champions with gap closers on early levels like KatarinaSquare KatarinaZedSquare Zed and YasuoSquare Yasuo

What should you buy as a Mid Sona?

TaricSquare Taric

TaricSquare Taric isn't a great mid laner, however he can be quite a good top laner. Doing what TaricSquare Taric dislikes, can lead to your Demise really quickly. Gemcraft Gemcraft deals bonus magic damage equaling to 20% of your armor, after using an ability. That makes armor on him more cost efficent. Imbue Imbue has the heal scaling of 5% of his health and 7% HP scaling on self-healing, which makes building HP on him more effective. Shatter Shatter increases his armor by 12%, and deals magic damage which scales of 20% of his armor. It also decreases his opponent's armor by 5-25 depending on level, and this armor reduction has a 5% armor scaling. Radiance Radiance deals magic damage and increases his damage and ability power by 30/50/70. You should max Shatter Shatter first and Imbue Imbue second.


Who is Taric good against in the top lane?

AD champions like RenektonSquare RenektonRivenSquare Riven and ZedSquare Zed.

Who should you avoid while playing him top?

AP champions like AkaliSquare Akali and Dr. MundoSquare Dr. Mundo should be a problem.
