Why do people play support Janna?

She doesn't help at all in bot lane trades. Once her ult is down, her kit is near useless in a teamfight. She can't really harass without going oom and even then, her harass is unreliable. Is it really THAT important to be able to disengage well?

Let's compare her to Sona who can can: poke often for good damage, heal both bot lane champs, team stun, increase mobility, slow the enemy etc. You can make similar comparisons with thresh/nami/taric etc.

Janna can knockup multiple enemies with a short CD

Can Shield her ally + atk Dam up

She can also slow an enemy

Her ult can be used to heal the entire team

Her ult can push enemies away and if position the way she wants can make enemy pushed where she wants.


Passive makes whole team faster but that will be nerfed.

Many people, of course, use 'sentimentalism' as a term of abuse for other people's decent feelings, and realism as a disguise for their own brutality. G H Hardy

TIL: a free BF sword, a team wide short CD knockup, a slow, one of the best disengages in the game, and a heal makes for an awful support.

I know I would definitely steer clear of the highest winrate in the game.
