How to play Janna



Janna is a enchanter Support Champion. She excels at shielding and healing your teammates to keep them alive. She has a pretty strong laning phase you just need to be careful and make sure the enemy bot lane does not engage onto you because you don't have a lot of health. The later the game goes the better Janna gets. Her shields and heals become even stronger and you can do a lot more to keep your team alive.

Janna's Abilities


Tailwind (Passive)

Janna and nearby allied champions moving towards her gain movement speed. This allows Janna to roam in the early game to try and get an advantage in the jungle and other lanes.

Howling Gale (1)

Janna summons a whirlwind tornado that gains damage, range and knock-up duration as it charges up over time. When you re-cast or the charge time is up, Janna launches the whirlwind, dealing magic damage and knocking up enemies in its path.

In the laning phase, your best bet to land Howling Gale is to cast it in the bushes or by using it as follow up to any other crowd control. If you cast Howling Gale in a bush, the enemies can't see the tornado until it leaves the bush meaning you can catch enemies off guard.

Zephyr (2)

While Zephyr is not on cooldown, Janna gains movement speed and deals additional magic damage with attacks. This makes Janna's auto attacks hurt a lot in the early game.

Most of the time you want to auto-attack before you use Zephyr so you can deal a little bit of extra damage. Zephyr is a targeted ability that deals magic damage and slows the target for a few seconds.

Eye of the Storm (3)

Janna shields an allied champion or turret from damage and grants attack damage while it holds. This shield works well when using it on AD Carry duo laners as it will give them extra damage and a shield.

This shield works well with Ardent Censer and Staff of the Flowing Water because whoever you shield will get the extra bonuses from these items.

You can also use this shield on yourself if you feel like it is the best option to keep yourself alive or deal more damage with your auto attacks.

Monsoon (Ultimate)

Janna calls forth mighty winds to knock back surrounding enemies and restore health to nearby allies each second for the next few seconds.

You can knock back enemies to your team by using the Flash + Monsoon combo which will push enemies back to your team. This is super risky as it puts you in a difficult position but if you can catch out a high-value target it will all be worth it.

Also, be careful when using Monsoon to make sure you don't save your opponent by knocking them away from your team.

Ionian Boots of Lucidity - Redeeming

Janna does best with support items that give her shields and healing more power. With that in mind, Ardent Censer is the go-to and must-buy on Janna. Not only do you get health and ability power but the passive is the important part. When you shield or heal an ally they gain bonus attack speed and deal more damage. This is great as Janna's whole kit relies on shielding, healing, and buffing your team. Another core and must-buy item is Harmonic Echo. This gives you much-needed mana and a little bit of extra ability power. But again the main reason is for the passive. Moving and casting abilities build Harmony stacks. At max stacks, your next heal or shield on an ally will also heal them even more. So even more ways to keep your team alive.


With runes, we have the following:

Aery

This gives Janna more shield power and also allows you to deal that little bit of extra damage which is nice in the laning phase.

Weakness

Janna has plenty of abilities that immobilize the enemy so your team can follow up and deal 5% more damage to that enemy.

Loyalty

As a support champion, your main job is to keep your team alive and loyalty is a great rune that can help!

Manaflow Band

With Zephyr (2nd ability) being an easy point and click spell it's really easy to get stacks on this rune to gain more mana which helps a lot as the game goes on.

Flash
Heal

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get you out of a bad situation or allows you to flash and save your ally or even maybe get a kill. Heal works well as a 2nd summoner spell choice if your AD Carry takes barrier however if your bot lane duo (AD Carry) also takes heal it is really bad for you to also go Heal because you don't get the full effect. If this happens then change heal to Ignite to help kill the enemies.

Early Game


Janna does really well in the early game with poking from Zephyr (2nd Ability) and Howling Gale (1st Ability) and if you can time your Eye of the storm (3rd Ability) shield you can win trades vs the enemy bot lane every time. An important tip if you cast Howling Gale in a bush the enemy team can't see the ability until it goes out of the bush so it's a nice way to catch out your enemy.

Late Game


Janna does really well as you scale up to mid and late game because of her amazing abilities that can help keep your team alive. It is really important as a support that you stay with your team and help them during team fights. Prioritize keeping your carries alive and protecting them against the enemy team using everything possible to keep them alive. The AD Carry in your team is one of the main damage sources and keeping he/her alive is really important! 

Conclusion


Janna is a very safe and beginner-friendly champion to play! She is great at keeping your team alive so can pressure a lot in the laning phase to give your Dragon Lane partner a lot of breathing space.
