As a starting Leona (support) player, I've been trying to decide whether to start off with Amulet Coin or Relic Shield. (I know that a lot of pro players take Doran's Shield but I'm not up to that standard yet, so that's not what I'm looking for, at least right now.)
Apparently Relic Shield is more gold efficient as support gold income items go, but since I spend a lot of my time in the bush to be prepared to ambush, I'm not sure if Relic Shield could be well-implemented on Leona or if I'm just playing incorrectly.
And in the end, it's also a question about added health or extra mana regen, and about the final upgrades to the items (I like the cooldown reduction on Talisman).
So my question is, should I be taking Amulet Coin or Relic Shield, and why? Do playstyles determine which I should pick?
