Le-own-her

Leona the Radiant Dawn. A jazzy little title and it would need to be for the steep IP price of 6300. A price the LoL community is getting more and more familiar with. Is it all worth it though for Riots first female tank?

Movelist -
Shield of Daybreak – Leona charges her shield with the power of the sun causing her next melee attack to deal additional damage and briefly stun the target.
Eclipse – Leona raises her shield granting her additional Armor and Magic Resistance for 3 seconds. When the effect ends she deals area of effect damage and increases the duration of the defensive bonuses by 3 seconds if she damages an enemy.
Zenith Blade – Leona throws a blade of sunlight that deals damage to all enemies in a line. Leona teleports to the last enemy champion hit by this attack.
Solar Flare – After a brief delay, Leona calls down a beam of solar energy dealing damage and slowing enemies. Enemies in the center of the beam are stunned instead of slowed.
Sunlight (Passive) – Leona’s abilities mark the target with sunlight. Allied champions that damage marked targets deal additional damage and consume the mark.

It's a pretty good set of moves which remind people a lot of the champion Jarvan. I have to say though she feels very different to Jarv and while she doesn't flow or do jobs such as jungling well like him, she is still a decent champion that can fit well into a strong team. However, I find her damage currently to be a little lacking and I know you may be thinking, 'Well she's a tank' and that's true but tanks need damage to be a threat. Not as much as a carry of course but enough for them to be a presence in a late game team fight. 

If you're looking for a fun new champion give her a try I think she's one of the only 6.3k champions worth the cost. However, if you're looking for a champion that would carry games wait a while and hope that Riot gives her damage a little love next patch.
