Summoner Spells Back to Top

Flash/Exhaust is really the only viable option on Janna. If you're trolling I can imagine Ghost over Flash for ult positioning or ignite over exhaust to mess with a Soraka. It's a very rare circumstance in which you would be better off without flash exhaust.

Masteries Back to Top

Pretty much everything in the middle column is non-negotiable. Very easy choices for Janna.


For the right column it all depends on whether or not you're going to get poked in lane. Explorer and unyielding are also fine choices if you play around them. Runic armor will almost always be better for you, as will insight.

E is what Janna is all about. In fact it's so much of Janna's kit you have to be careful because Janna has a weak level 2. E gives your ADC AD and protects them from damage so shield them any time they can attack or can be attacked. Early game just keep your eye on the enemies and any time they look like they can get an attack off, shield your ADC.

W is a really good ability in general, a rule of thumb may be: If you're chasing, use it. If you're running, keep it. Use it on AA reliant champs in team fights or anyone who just flashed in or out.

Q is your hardest ability to use effectively, you really don't want to spam it in lane because it's very costly on your mana. The best way to use this is to stop someone jumping on you or your ADC, aim the Q directly toward the enemy Zac, Lee Sin, Xin Zhau, etc. and as soon as you think they're about to move, trigger it. otherwise let it charge up and pass through teamfights or get close to someone and double trigger it for a short knockup.


Everybody at lower ranks loves Janna's Q and if you're at such a low rank you can let it charge all the way up and let it hit a group of people consistently, go for it.


Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Pretty much never anything else, you have a relatively short attack range and cant afford to spam out abilities so spellthief's edge is pretty bad. I might negotiate a Dark seal with you but it's almost never optimal since you cant easily secure kills.

Core Items

    Sightstone is non-negotiable at least above Bronze. Depending on how much you're getting poked I often buy 1-2 faerie charms instead of health pots early on if I have extra money left over. As much as I love Talisman of Ascension, It's such an expensive item for a support early on I rarely buy it, save it for situations where you'll need to charge as a team or when you need to reposition around AD.
    These items are godly for Janna they let her spam shield to a comical extent and offer great side utility. Redemption is good every game. Mikaels answers morg, ashe, lux and more. Ardent Censor is unbelievably good for any auto attack based ADC and you too. It's not which one to buy, it's which one to buy first.
    Locket is great especially against AP and in situations where you need to shield your whole team. I suggest upgrading your sightstone somehow. Control wards are great, place one just inside your jungle or right in front of dragon/baron. Switch to red trinket when you buy sightstone and upgrade it at level 9.
    Buy any of the cheap boots but be careful not to go over 45% CDR.
    If you make it to 50 minutes. There are countless variations though and Mikaels can often be worthless if they have no CC.

Situational Items

    Dark seal and Mejais if you know you aren't ever going to die. Deathcap can be a good item to swap your boots with at late game since w will give you the same speed if you have mana. Banner is really good against teams that will send like an annivia or swain to clear a wave plus it's a free split push. Zekes can be fun if you know your ADC and can be great for an Ashe. Knights vow I've built against fed AD assassins. (Don't go knight's vow for Zed just ult right after his ult animation ends.)

VS

Annie

Medium

Her burst with tibbers is really hard to handle but if you get past level minutes without feeding her or her ADC kills you're pretty much in the clear. Ask for ganks pre-6 and still stay careful after 6 because a fed Annie goes right through your shields. Stay away from your ADC so you don't both get ulted.

VS

Ashe

Easy

Get a Mikael's early for her ult. Easy lane.


VS

Bard

Hard

Bard's biggest strength is setting up ganks and roaming. Since you have no good engage tools bard can roam all over the map. Ward the jungle by their turret and keep those MIA pings up. Following can be risky too because his auto attacks really start to hurt 10 minutes in.

VS

Blitzcrank

Hard

The pick people think of when they think "Janna Counter" Stay behind your minions bla bla bla Blitz is just annoying, don't be afraid to get zoned and if you don't have your ult don't take a q for your ADC.

VS

Brand

Medium

Always annoying keep your shields and your dodging ability ready.

VS

Braum

Easy

Super boring lane, you both ought to keep your adc safe. Sometimes it's possible to zone him and his ADC off minions completely but don't go overboard trying.

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

Don't use your shield to clear traps.

VS

Corki

Easy

Shield his poke. GG

VS

Draven

Medium

If he start to go aggressive use all of your abilities, I wouldn't pick Janna into him because he's so easily countered but if you get stuck with him don't panic, and never go for a fight without a gank.

VS

Ezreal

Easy

Shield his poke, get annoyed, hopefully scale over him.

VS

Janna

Easy

Really, Really boring. Maybe go dark seal because you're not going to die any time soon.

VS

Jhin

Easy

If he ults use your q and your shield, otherwise just spam that shield because he's predictable.

VS

Jinx

Hard

Jinx is a big deal if you don't have an adc that scales at least as well as her. The lane will be casual but she will snowball hard.

VS

Karma

Medium

Poke<Shield. 

VS

Kog'Maw

Hard

You need someone to get on kog'maw and stop him early and you can never have a drawn out teamfight.

VS

Leona

Easy

All she has is hard engage. QER all counter pretty hard.

VS

Lucian

Easy

Just don't mess with him early. He may want to 1v1 your ADC, don't let him. Your shield makes pretty much and adc/supp 2v2 a win.

VS

Lulu

Hard

Lulu is pretty similar to you but expect a little harass with it. Don't hard engage against a lulu.

VS

Lux

Easy

Getting rarer and the supp role, dodge her snare and buy a mikaels.

VS

Miss Fortune

Medium

Don't get poked, try your best to cancel her ult but if you can't run.

VS

Morgana

Medium

Definitely buy that Mikaels and be careful around her q.

VS

Nami

Medium

Boring lane. Hope you don't have an aggressive ADC, she's too squashy late game so eventually she drops off as long as you brought the damage and not just poke.

VS

Rakan

Easy

Keep your distance his q has short range. w can be dodged pretty easily, and if you really get scared ult his R away, he does pretty little damage and doesnt have that much cc or tank.

VS

Sivir

Easy

You don't have to poke her and you can block all her poke and bouncing blades while your ADC outdamages her at every point in the game. Easiest lane.

VS

Sona

Medium

Annoying poke so get ready to shield. Watch out for her ult late game in teamfights.

VS

Soraka

Easy

Raka counters poke and you have none. You scale about equally though.

VS

Tahm Kench

Easy

Rare and not very good, don't get poked.

VS

Taric

Easy

Often wise to get your ADC an ardent censor. Your disengage hurts his ult ability badly

VS

Thresh

Medium

Thresh can be very strong throughout the game and can even counter you a little however threshes tend to suck for some reason. Could be hard. More likely easy.

VS

Tristana

Easy

Nothing too complicated. Your shield totally deletes her bomb utility.

VS

Twitch

Hard

Actually pretty hard expect a lot of damage at every point in the game. Early you can shield his e though. Use your shield wisely.

VS

Urgot

Easy

Really terrible against you in particular.

VS

Varus

Easy

Shield the poke forever.

VS

Vayne

Medium

Occasionally tricky. Ult her exhaust her and w her. In any major fight unless someone else nees the exhaust more like a kat.


VS

Xayah

Medium

Don't get too confident. She's very risky to try to zone but not that strong otherwise.

VS

Zilean

Easy

Shields and scaling.

VS

Zyra

Medium

A little tricky just because of the sheer damage output. stay near your minions so she cant 100-0 you.
