Best Janna Build Guide | Runes | Spells | Items in League of Legends




Janna is a support champion in LoL whose abilities are somewhat complicated to use for beginners, but in the hands of those League of Legends players who have put more time into playing with her, Janna is quite annoying. With her unpredictable CC, shielding, and healing, she can be the doom of the enemy team if they underestimate her, and in this section, we'll go over her best builds.

Best Janna Build

The best Janna build boils down to a support who’s there to provide shields and buffs, and of course, bother the enemy team as much as possible thanks to her magic damage and her “Q” ability. When playing Janna support you want to be careful since she resists very little damage.

Best Janna Runes

Her best runes in League of Legends are the “Inspiration” rune set and “Resolve”. For the Inspiration rune tree, the Keystone “Glacial Augment” will grant overall Crowd Control in the bottom lane, or other lanes as well. For the rest of the rune slots “Magical Footwear”, “Biscuit Delivery”, and “Cosmic Insight” will give you the sustain you need in the laning phase.

For her second rune path, “Font of Life” from the “Resolve” tree will be the little help she needs to heal her ADC in the early game, the second keystone would be “Revitalize” which will strengthen your shields and heals.

Best Janna Rune Shards

The best Rune Shards for Janna, starting with “Offense”, would be CDR, which stands for “Cool Down Reduction”, followed by “Adaptive Force” as a “Flex”, finishing with “Armor” in the “Defense” spot.

Some may think because of her ability power the "Sorcery" tree rune tree would be on the best Janna runes section, but she benefits more from "Resolve".

Best Janna Spells

Janna’s best summoner spells in League of Legends are “Flash” and “Ignite”, and one would think “Heal” could be one of the best summoner spells for her than “Ignite”, but the extra damage when you play Janna and her auto attack, could set the difference when getting officially involved in a fight.

Flash, as almost always, is a must-have in a champion, it will help you get out of tricky situations.

Best Janna Abilities Order

Janna’s best skill order focuses on protecting your ADC and slowing down enemy champions while using her "Howling Gale" as a threat. However, your first ability in your skill order should be “Howling Gale”, followed up by “Eye of the Storm”, and “Zephyr”, which should be the order for the first 3 levels.

Janna_AbilityOrder

At levels 4, 5, and 7, focus on leveling up your “Eye of the Storm”, unlocking your ultimate at level 6. From level 8 to 13 focus on maximizing your “Zephyr”, “Eye of the Storm”, and “R”, being your first ability “Howling Gale” the last to fully complete in the skill order.

Best Janna Items

Best Janna Starter Items

Janna’s first support item build consists of “Spellthief’s Edge”, a couple of “Health Potions”, and a “Stealth Ward”. The first item is key for her to stack up gold since she’s a support, while the “Health Potions” are meant to keep her alive since she’s quite weak, finally, use the “Stealth Ward” to avoid any surprises by having vision.
