Summoner Spells Back to Top

I'd always recommend to take 3.png+4.png. If you like playing aggressively 14.png can be useful, this should explain itself. But I don't see many situations in which 14.png would outclass 3.png as Janna. Even though it got nerfed some time back it's still the best Summoner to go for.

New Runes Back to Top

I personally like having some AP on 40.png so I go for the Sorcery Tree. Most of the runes are self explanatory but I'll get deeper into why I take which rune next time I update the guide!

W at level 2 for the extra safety. Never underestimate the ability to be able to walk through minions! Make sure to make best use of your W at all times.


I doubt there's ever a reason to max howlinggale.png before sowthewind.png, Movespeed is just too important.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Do I have to say anything about this? Coin was totally nice before and they even buffed it. Best support item to get even for Supports that usually go for Spellthief.
    If you like playing aggressively get this.

Core Items

    W-Max Damage Janna Not sure about the Liandry's yet but it seems like a very decent AP-Item no matter what so I like it.

Situational Items

    I don't like these, you go slow as soon as anything hits you and you don't want to be slow as Janna. Swifties FTW
    No. Do not buy weird items like some Soraka players do. It's very easy to go out of any game with 0 deaths even with 0 defensive Items as Janna. I accept Banshees and frozen heart, but other than that don't even try (me).
    You know the drill. Get these if you are pretty damn good at Janna and you KNOW that you're not gonna die at all or less than 3 times throughout a long game. Otherwise just don't waste money on these.
    Not recommended if you're not certain that it'll help you out. As I mentioned before, I LOVE doing Damage on Janna, but at the same time I prefer coin over spellthiefs so this is what I end up with.

Not much to say here, I basically explained everything already °3°

Blitzcrank

Hard

As always 53.png is not quite a matchup you should like. Being a squishy Support 40.png is a very nice target to use rocketgrab.png on. It's gonna hit sooner or later if you're not careful. Also his overdrive.png Speedboost can be big enough to catch you off guard for a quick powerfist.png+rocketgrab.png

Hints:

Obviously make sure to dodge rocketgrab.png. Getting hit one time is one time too much.
He can cancel reapthewhirlwind.png with rocketgrab.png, powerfist.png, staticfield.png. Use it wisely
His overdrive.png slows him when it ends, make use of that.

VS

Ezreal

Easy
81.png is slippery and scales well into lategame. But there's not much more to him than that, his damage is really mediocre and he needs to use his ability to really deal damage and it's not exactly hard to avoid ezrealmysticshot.png.

Hints:

Aggressive ezrealarcaneshift.png? Close enough to your Tower? 4.png+reapthewhirlwind.png unless it's suicide.
Wait out his ezrealarcaneshift.png before stopping him in his tracks with howlinggale.png.
howlinggale.png does NOT cancel ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png, stick to your Team instead of trying crazy Melee-mode-plays.

VS

Jhin

Medium

I personally really dislike this Champion. I don't consider him OP or anything, there's just so much to him that annoys me. The matchup is pretty situational and depends a lot on the players. His high Damage per each hit is very dangerous and with the usual Janna Build you really wanna avoid getting hit by him in general as soon as he gets some items.

Hints:

Try to stay away from minions if possible to avoid jhinq.png
Make sure to eyeofthestorm.png the right person when he uses jhinr.png
He has no CC to stop your reapthewhirlwind.png

VS

Lucian

Easy

The only reason I dislike 236.png is cause he's so overused. Why? Why does everybody play this Champion? But maybe it's just me, I don't like playing Champions you see every single game, but tbh 40.png is played pretty often in high elo. But you get me.

Hints:

Your howlinggale.png cancels lucianr.png.
His damage is very mediocre, especially without items, make sure he stays behind.

VS

Lulu

Medium

I really like playing Lulu right now, sometimes she just feels like a better Janna, but on the other hand nobody outclasses Janna. Janna is all we need in life. Still Lulu is not always easy to deal with

Hints

Make sure to protect your ADC as he will 90% of the times forget about luluw.png which makes him absolutely useless and many fights will be lost
Don't let her poke you too much, she can hurt quite a lot. (Passive)

VS

Master Yi

Easy

Yi is obnoxious as hell, no matter what you do, your team will always end up sticking him kills up his ass for no reason. So be ready for him to have a lot of burst. Here's how to easily deal with him

Hints:

Do NOT use your sowthewind.png on him, he's just gonna have a way easier time keeping up with you
Safe your reapthewhirlwind.png for his engage A L W A Y S
eyeofthestorm.png whoever  he's trying to kill, this is very obvious.
use your howlinggale.png after he used alphastrike.png or while he's using meditate.png

VS

Sona

Hard

One of the worst Botlane matchups for Janna. Sona can do a lot of things Janna can, but often better. Not only can she cancel reapthewhirlwind.png with sonar.png but at the same time open up for easy engages on you and your teammates. sonar.png is also useful to burst you quickly enough before you can react.

Hints:

Stay out of her range, as long as you get EXP and your coins (3301.png) you're fine, no need to get poked or killed for no reason.
you can easily see when 37.png is going for an engage. Use your howlinggale.png to stop her.

VS

Soraka

Hard

If Soraka is any good she'll make sure to use her sorakae.png on you whenever the time is right, THIS ability gets underestimated constantly and it's hilarious that people don't get how gamechanging it can be, I personally like Soraka a lot and used to play her all the time, 40.png was not at all a big fear of mine. She also outheals you and if you try to play aggressive she can easily get constant sorakaq.pngs off on you, healing everyone EVEN MORE.

Hints

Avoid her sorakae.png at all costs, not only does it cancel reapthewhirlwind.png but also stops you from using any other ability, also IMO getting stuck in any way (Snare/Stun/Knockup etc.) is one of 40.pngs biggest weaknesses.
Tell your ADC to focus her if you feel like it's the better idea.
Avoid fights in early if you don't get ahead in some way (e. g. gank), winning 2v2s against 16.png+ any kind of decent ADC-Player is difficult.

VS

Tahm Kench

Easy

This Champion gets outclassed by so many others and barely anyone can (or even tries to) play him well in his current state. Dealing with 223.png can only become a problem if you try to bait him for no reason.

Hints:

You can cancel his tahmkenchnewr.png with Q if it's not too late.
Your Movespeed helps you a lot to dodge tahmkenchq.png and avoid his Autohits.
Make sure to reapthewhirlwind.png if you or your teammate got 3 Kench-Stacks on them and the Situation is dangerous enough (ya know).
Simply keep him away from your teammates with howlinggale.png. He has no ways of catching you by simply placing a nice howlinggale.png.

VS

Vayne

Medium

This matchup is very even, 67.png is known to have a weak early game and scales insanely hard.

Hints:

Don't underestimate her early game.
Make sure not to position yourself in a way for her to land the perfect vaynecondemn.png.

VS

Zilean

Easy

Zilean can be a total pain in the ass, but for Janna he's really not a problem to deal with.

Hints:

eyeofthestorm.png at the right time before his zileanq.png explodes on whoever he used it on, it will always be worth for you
Obvious: don't clump and don't get hit by 2 zileanq.png

Hi Back to Top

As you probably noticed this is still a work in progress, I'll try to update it as much as possible, especially the matchups are very uncomplete and I have a lot of matchups to cover! I might aswell mention that the account I linked isn't my main, but as I have my main linked to another guide I figured I could use this one for Janna. My Main is Plat 2 and my Season 7 was horrible on it, the account I linked is at least a little better in case of what I as a player am capable of. This sounds like I'm totally arrogant but I guess I kinda am sometimes, lol. It's MMR should be better than my Mains aswell.


Hey. I've liked Janna for a long time now but only started playing her much more in Season 7, the main reason for this is that Jungle is pretty much Support in worse. Due to that I've decided instead of ruining my winrates, KDA's and elo to just start playing more Support and who would've guessed: It's extremely damn strong and fun to play, I especially like Janna (and recently started playing Lulu a lot aswell.) As you can see on my profile I still like playing Jungle, mainly 11.png

, unfortunately it's very difficult to carry right now as for one Jungle is horrible and the fact that 11.png is overused as hell makes it much less fun than usual. I'm waiting for his pickrate to be lower again before I really start playing him again.


 Janna


IMO 40.pngis the best Support in the game. A lot of people claim she's extremely easy to play and at some points they're right but all I can say is that League of Legends in general is not a hard game, saying this and that Champion is a "noobchamp" and then going ahead and thinking they're good playing 412.png, having their 45% winrate is really pathethic.


One of the things I like most about 40.pngis her insane survivability. If you die a lot with Janna you're definitely doing a lot of things wrong, there's no Champion in the game (except for maybe117.pngsometimes) that can stay alive with more ease than40.png.

Also I love her design and calm voice, I could play Janna allday long just due to that.


It happens all the time that enemies underestimate 40.pngs ability to keep her team alive, that's often the main reason you are able to carry games as 40.png even if your team is behind. In most scenarios you want to peel your adc as much as possible, but if you have something like a fed 107.png on your team and it's time to group then in very many fights you want to prefer Rengar over your ADC who might not even have a lead on anyone.
