Summoner Spells Back to Top



14.pngSo when do I use exhaust or ignite?3.png

Ignite / exhaust is a 50 - 50. When I see a lot of tank on the enemy team but a killable bot lane I'd like 14.png more. But when I see someone who needs to be exhausted such as55.png39.png238.png I'll favor 3.png. This is all your choice. Ignite just helps finishing off kills in fights. Nobody expects ignite on Sona.

Masteries Back to Top

These Masteries are pretty straight forward.

sonahymnofvalor.pngCunningsonahymnofvalor.png

  • 5/5 Wanderer: because Supports roam a lot. No need to add to your last hit.

  • 1/1 Biscuits for added sustain

  • 5/5 Meditation: to add to your Mana sutain. Since mana pots are gone this helps, I can see taking 5/5 Merciless but this is my choice.

  • 1/1 Bandit: Adds to our gold income. You're not a tank support so no need for Game.

  • 5/5 Intelligence: Free CDR Plus caps your CDR at 45% making late game more fun!

  • 1/1 Wind Speakers: Obvious choice. Tage everyone you can for free stats. Adds to your shield and heal power too.


sonaariaofperseverance.pngResolvesonaariaofperseverance.png

  • 5/5 Recovery: Adds to our sustain. Helps avoid potions.

  • 1/1 Explorer: Helps us roam and deward. You can take 1/1 Tough Skin if you want. This is my choice.

  • 5/5 Veteran's Scars: Makes Sona less Squishy in the early levels.

  • 5/5 Insight: No real use for the other one plus it's always worth trading your cool downs in trades for the enemy ADC's since your's will be up sooner.



sonasongofdiscord.pngWind Speaker's or Thunder Lord's?sonasongofdiscord.png


Both are strong on Sona. I just love the idea of adding more stats to my team mates and increasing my protection potential. Take TLORDS vs a full squishy team or a lane you can bully. Your choice. In higher ELO you'll find Wind Speaker's to be better. Spam TLORDS to get out of Silver.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    SIMPLY THE BEST STARTING ITEM ON SONA. GOLD FROM AA ATTACKS WHICH FAVORS YOUR ABILITIES. PLUS A GP10 PASSIVE MAKES IT SELL IT'SELF LATER. BUY THIS.
    TAKE 3 OF THESE TO START. BUY 2-3 TILL LATE GAME.
    START THIS. SELL IT AFTER YOU GET YOUR SIGHTSTONE.
    BUY THIS IF YOU'RE NEW TO SONA OR DON'T WANT TO PLAY AGGRESSIVE AT ALL. BEST VS LEONA THRESH BLITZ. STILL WOULDN'T TAKE IT.

Core Items

    WHILE WARDING IS NOT YOUR MAIN JOB ANYMORE, THIS STILL IS THE MOST GOLD EFFICIENT ITEM IN THE GAME. BUY WARDS OFTEN AND UPGRADE THIS INTO EYE OF THE WATCHERS.
    VERY MUCH IMPORTANT THROUGH OUT ALL STAGES OF THE GAME. TELL YOURSELF AND TEAM TO KEEP ONE HANDY AT ALL TIMES.
    MOBIS IF THEY HAVE AN IMMOBILE TEAM THAT YOU CAN GO AROUND AND GANK FOR. SWIFTNESS IS BETTER FOR DEWARDING.
    GET THIS LEVEL NINE AND DEWARD YOUR JUNGLE CONSTANTLY.
    CURRENTLY THE BEST UPGRADE FOR AP SUPPORTS. FROST QUEEN'S ACTIVE IS WHATEVER AND THIS GIVES PRETTY MUCH THE SAME STATS + AN EXTRA WARD.

Situational Items

    I ONLY BUY THIS ON "SAFER" SUPPORTS BUT IT'S OKAY. IF YOU'RE ROCKING BUY IT.
    ONLY BUY THIS IF YOUR TEAM HAS 2 AP CHAMPS THAT ISN'T GETTING THIS AND YOU'RE VS'ING TWO OR MORE AP CHAMPIONS. STILL YOU DON'T MAKE THAT MUCH USE OF THE AURA.
    GREAT BUY VS FULL AD COMPS AND ALL THE STATS ARE WELCOMED FOR OUR SQUISHY MAVEN.
    USUALLY LOCKET WILL BE YOUR SECOND MAJOR BUY. GOOD VS ANY AMOUNT OF AP CHAMPS BUT I'D RATHER INVEST MY MONEY IN BANNER.
    PROBABLY THE BEST CHOICE RIGHT NOW. SEND YOUR BANNER BOT LANE AND PUSH ANOTHER LANE. I PREFER THIS > LOCKET IN MOST GAMES.
    YOU'RE THE BEST SUPPORT TO MAKE FULL USE OF THIS ITEM WITH YOUR CONSTANT SHEILDS AND HEALS. GREAT FOR TOWER PUSHING. BUY BUY BUY.
    GOOD FOR CONSTANT SIEGING. I ADORE THIS ITEM ON SONA. ADDS TO YOUR OVERALL OP SONA DAMAGE. NOW GIVES CDR MAKING ITEMIZING EASIER.
    NOT GREAT ANYMORE. ONLY BUY IF YOUR ADC ASKS FOR ONE WHICH YOU STILL SHOULDN'T DO. THEY HAVE MUCH BETTER STATS TO BUY FROM KIT INSTEAD OF THIS. IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR ARMOR I'D SUGGEST OTHER OPTIONS.
    USUALLY MY LOST ITEM SLOT VS BALANCED TEAMS IS DEDICATED TO THIS. THIS ADDS TO YOUR PEELS POTENTIAL AND DOESN'T MAKE YOU SQUISHY ANYMORE.
    ONLY GOOD VS CC YOU NEED TO GET OFF ON SOMEONE. THE STATS ARE DEFINITLEY WELCOMED BUT IS NOT A MUST.
    IF YOU REACH (SOMEHOW) A 3K HEALTH MARK WITH THIS AND YOU'RE VS'ING AN AP TEAM.
    FOR WHEN THE FED ENEMY LEBLANC IS SPAMMING "WHITE GIRL" IN ALL CHAT AND KILLING YOUR SQUISHY ASS.

sonahymnofvalor.pngTHIS META THOsonahymnofvalor.png

Undeniably, this meta has become a fast pushed META. You will often see 3512.png and 3060.png on anyone that can make use of it. My build focuses on our seiging power which Sona's abilities are good at, while still staying true to your support role.

VS

Alistar

Medium

Some Sona's have problems with this match up. I don't, and you shouldn't either.

  • This lane is all about zone control, use yoursonahymnofvalor.png on the enemy adc when you are out of Alistair's range.
  • Two points into sonaariaofperseverance.png can help mitigate some of their damage.
  • Play aggressive level one and don't let him near you.
  • Most Alistair's will run ignite vs. you and will try to flash pulverize.png and headbutt you into the enemy adc, don't let him do that.
  • Most Alistair's suck at the headbutt.pngpulverize.png combo, but do note if he does land it, it can be VERY big for him.
  • triumphantroar.png His heal isn't very potent, but he can do it help with his ADC with your damage.
  • You should win level 6.
  • He makes ganks easy, ward river well.
  • Run 3.png

VS

Annie

Medium

The Support Annie hype has died down (thank god) but she can be a nuisance if you let her.

  • Go aggressive in the early stages, especially after level 2.
  • I advice poking her and not so much her adc so she'll be a scared child whimsed by your music.
  • If your ADC gets stunned, sonaariaofperseverance.pngPower chord her adc so their damage output goes down, this is very vital.
  • If you kill them before level 6, you won the lane. You cannot survive a flash tibbers combo.
  • She has enormous pick potential so keep wards up at vital locations.
  • Two points in sonaariaofperseverance.png can help but not necessary.
  • Run 3.png, and make sure you exhaust sonaariaofperseverance.pngpowerchord the enemy aadc if she's looking to fight.

VS

Ashe

Easy

Not the hardest match up, she can be difficult if the Ashe is good, but that's rare.

  • Most people play Ashe when they don't play adc
  • For her to activate her asheQ.png she has to have AA's 5 times prior. It's very strong if she can get it off.
  • Watch out for her asheW.png volley cone, if you trade wrong you'll get Volley'd and smack with some AA's and that's no good ):
  • Her asheR.png lets her engage easily, and set up ganks easily. Be wary of this.
  • Most Ashe's kinda stutter before they ult, pay attention. A well time'd flash can save your life.
  • Max sonahymnofvalor.png and mess her up.
  • 14.png Run ignite if she's laned with other stationary supports, if not take 3.png

VS

Bard

Easy

I really have never had a problem with Bard, he's annoying but that's about it.

  • Max sonahymnofvalor.png and poke him often, hes pretty soft.
  • Avoid his bardQ.png from stunning you, this is vital for trading with him.
  • His kit is a lot like your's. Make sure he knows who the ORIGINAL stationary support is.
  • Assert your dominance early.
  • His heal is pathetic.
  • His ultbardR.png can make or break a team fight. Stay away from it.
  • Keep wards behind his tower brushes because they usually love to bardE.png in with their jungler, especially from the purple side.
  • Run 14.png and kill him early.

VS

Blitzcrank

Hard

Oh boy. You first picked Sona and they locked in Blitzcrank. Lucky you. But luckily for you, you're reading this guide. I'll help you

  • He's so annoying. Keep brushes warded because he loves to stand in them.
  • Even if he's a bad Blitz, respect that one successful rocketgrab.png pull can win him the lane.
  • Always ping MIA's he loves to roam a lot more than you do.
  • Just do what you can to ask your jungler for ganks, and hope your adc isn't dumb.
  • In team fights, you excel a lot more at peeling, shielding, and have more damage.
  • Two points into sonaariaofperseverance.png can help a lot.
  • Always wsonaariaofperseverance.png powerchord his adc if you or your adc get grabbed.
  • Run 3.png

VS

Brand

Hard

He is so strong right now. We have the tools to beat him but you have to play smart.

  • Most brands will start hisbrandblaze.png and they'll push for his level 2 all in.
  • When he misses an ability, poke his squishy self into olbivion.
  • Don't forget about his passivebrandpassive.png, it deals DPS over time. Your sheilds will help soften that.
  • Do not always be so clumped with your adc, combined with his brandconflagration.png and his ultbrandwildfire.png, you will get killed and die.
  • He doesn't roam as well as you so take advantage of that.
  • Keep wards in his brush at all time.
  • You can win a 2v2 if your adc is competent, and you get the engage first with your ultsonacrescendo.png
  • 3.png Helps a lot.

VS

Braum

Hard

This lane can go either way. However his tools are more likely to beat you if he wishes to focus you and not your adc.

  • Do not let him hit you with braumQ.png and proceed to get his passive off, 9/10 times you'll die, especially early game.
  • His wbraumW.png gives him a gap closer on minions, always look to when he wants to go aggro.
  • He does a lot of damage early, especially when his passive procs.
  • His braumE.png Can block your ult from hitting his adc and you will cry and you will die. Play around it.
  • braumR.pngHis ult is pretty meh now, your's is more detrimental IMO.
  • You can win this lane, I usually do.
  • Two points sonaariaofperseverance.png might help, but it's not needed,
  • Run 3.png

VS

Caitlyn

Hard

Mmm she's hard to poke, and will probably be paired with 412.png or 40.png. We can win this game for sure.

  • Always trade back with her and let her know you mean business.
  • The width of her caitlynpiltoverpeacemaker.png got reduced so it's easier to dodge.
  • Now she loads her caitlynyordletrap.png, so stepping them isn't as easy as it was. Avoid them, and step on them when you're out of her 1,000 range.
  • She's a much better 2v2'er thanks to her caitlynentrapment.png, if she lands this on your adc they'll take more headshots.
  • She's incredibly annoying because she says "Boom, Headshot," every 3 seconds; well when she charges a head shot.
  • Her ult does a lot of damage, block the path between you and your adc. If you're both low and she's ulting you from afar. say good bye because your selfish adc will not save you.
  • She sucks late game now due to not scaling as well as other adc's with the new items.
  • Run 14.png or 3.png according to her team, you shouldn't die in this lane.

VS

Corki

Medium

He does a lot of mixed type damage, we don't really like that in a 2v2 lane. Still he's squishy and his moves are easy to dodge.

VS

Draven

Hard

Make sure you cry and soil yourself because I guarantee 412.png89.png or 111.png will be paired with this fool.

  • Remember, Draven does everything, with style. He only fights you at 1% or so I've been told.
  • You'll notice if he's good or not by how he catches his axes and trades.
  • Trade a quick sonahymnofvalor.png AA with him while he's catching his axes and back off ASAP.
  • Draven does a boat load of damage to Sona the squishy maven ):
  • Play safe a smart.
  • If he's paired with mentioned ^ Start Ruby crystal 1028.png and play safe.
  • If the lane is going bad maybe even maxingsonaariaofperseverance.png but two points should suffice.
  • run 3.png no exceptions.

VS

Ezreal

Easy

The squishy little baby can't stand you. Awhile ago, 37.png81.png was the premier bot lane. Times changed, and sometimes you seem him.

  • He is so soft, go hard on him level 1 and make him fear you.
  • Play around his ezrealmysticshot.png, if he just used it, poke him.
  • Block the travel path of his q with your body sometimes, your sonaariaofperseverance.png will heal you, and your adc will usually thank you.
  • You can kill him in almost all instances post 6 with a well placed sonacrescendo.png.
  • He has a lot of potential in his kit, but you probably won't see it at your elo.
  • Run 14.png unless there's a 238.png or 157.png on the enemy team.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Easy
Nobody really plays him support anymore, but in case you do see it, I want you to be ready.
  • Most fiddly sticks max his terrify.png. It's a fear that lasts awhile at max level.
  • His drain.png can be an annoying tehter, get out of it fast and trade hard with him back.
  • He's so soft you should win all trades.
  • Be wary of his ult, it can do quite a bit of damage. If you ever see him charging it make sure you 4.pngsonacrescendo.png him asap to cancel the channel.
  • Keep good wards up, he engages well in certain spots.
  • 14.png Ignite is standard, kill him early and dominate lane for roams.

VS

Graves

Hard

The new 104.png is more bursty and annoying than the last one. He will probably be paired with an engage type support, so be ready.

  • Avoid taking free damage from his aa's, if he's in your face he will get 3 buckshots on you and you'll die fast.
  • Dodge his supports moves and live to safety.
  • You can still start 3303.png vs him, just depending who he's paired with. If not maybe 3301.png or 1028.png will do the trick.
  • Keep your sonaariaofperseverance.png power chord handy, its barely possible to win fights.
  • 3.png is necessary.
  • Two points sonaariaofperseverance.png to live lane.

VS

Janna

Easy

I'll put this on medium because the lane will go either way..

  • People don't really pick her for her lane presence, but what she offers is far more than what you can do.
  • She makes ganks easy for her jungler so ward up.
  • Play around her shield CD, and poke her the most, this will make her afraid to do much.
  • She can Ruin your engage attempts with reapthewhirlwind.png so make sure you blow them up ASAP.
  • Running 14.png is nice, but go with what her team is.

VS

Kalista

Hard

When someone picks Kalista, they know how to use her. She's annoying and jumps too much and will be paired with an all in support.

  • Not much to say other than watch her rend stacks.
  • You'll see when she channels her ult, prepare accordingly.
  • You have the tools to beat and punish her. Poke her often with your sonahymnofvalor.png power chord.
  • If by some chance she dodges your sonacrescendo.png, proceed to cry.
  • I recommend 3.png.
  • Max sonahymnofvalor.png

VS

Karma

Medium

Karma has the right tools to trade with you, but you can win this lane easy,

  • Her empowered mantra karmaheavenlywave.png is what she will be looking to hit you with. It does a lot of damage. Dodge when necessary.
  • If you take a full duration of her karmaspiritbond.png before you have your ult, you'll die in most cases.
  • Shes very soft so trade with her adc often.
  • She sets up ganks well so plan accordingly.
  • Run 3.png or 14.png depending on the enemy team.
  • Max sonahymnofvalor.png

VS

Kennen

Easy

You'll either see him support, or adc.

  • ADC Kennen does a lot of damage early but falls off hard mid game. He's squishy early to so trade with him when he wants to hit your adc.
  • Avoid taking his shurikens as he will usually stun you, same goes for support kennen.
  • He has wonderful all in potential post level 6 so be wary.
  • His ult lighting spikes count as single target, so he makes great use out of Rylais and Spell Vamp.
  • Use your ulti for disengage if he engages first.
  • Hit level 6 first and kill him.
  • Max sonahymnofvalor.png
  • Run 3.png

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

Oh kog maw is so cute, and riot really nerfed him this last adc patch. Poor thing.

  • Hes very good at extended trade thanks to his kogmawbioarcanebarrage.png, hit him with sonahymnofvalor.png AA and back off.
  • He will usually be paired with a "protect kog" support, since he isn't that great at all ins.
  • Punish him often and make him miss CS.
  • Zoning him from CS won't let him scale into the late game.
  • Max sonahymnofvalor.png for ultimate harpi carrying
  • 3.pngExhaust really ruins his day.

VS

Lucian

Medium

You can trade with him, he does a lot of damage, but so do you. He'll probably comes with an all in support. Plan accordingly.

  • His lucianQ.png is pretty much unavoidable and does lots of damage.
  • He has the biggest level 2 power spike in bot lane imo.
  • A lot of mobility comes from his lucianE.png, make him use it offensively.
  • He will start to respect your damage post level 5.
  • Interrupt his ult lucianR.png with yours sonacrescendo.png and make him cry.
  • Ganks help.
  • 14.png3.png depending on his team. If the lane's in his favor, two points sonaariaofperseverance.png

VS

Lulu

Easy

She's just annoying. Show her your OP Sona damage and we will win.

  • Some lulu's max luluq.png and play aggressive and look to poke often.
  • Her luluw.png can really work wonders in trades, dont let her get to close to you or your adc.
  • Some lulu's max lulue.png and play reactionary. This is good for trading. Blow that shield up with your sonahymnofvalor.png AA combo and proceed to kill them.
  • Doing mized damage to her and her ADC is best, if she ults lulur.png the ADC, kill her instead.
  • 14.png works wonders and will catch her off guard.
  • Maxsonahymnofvalor.png

VS

Miss Fortune

Hard

The new MF is so strong, and she loves to trade just as much as you do.

  • Her new passive makes her do more damage to new targets she hits, so when you go to sonahymnofvalor.png she's going to AA missfortunericochetshot.png AA you.
  • Don't stand behind minions too much, her missfortunericochetshot.png does 150% bonus crit damage to the second target hit, and applies her passive. You can be at 100% hp to 50% it's silly.
  • Now interrupting missfortunebullettime.png s even more vitals, try to hit her with your ult sonacrescendo.png if you can and retreat to safety.
  • Run 3.png
  • Two points sonaariaofperseverance.png will help a lot.

VS

Morgana

Easy

You have the right tools to beat her and you should.

  • Dodge her binding, and poke her back with sonahymnofvalor.png AA.
  • She will only use her tormentedsoil.png to stack up her 3303.png passive, but don't stand in it.
  • When she E's, blow up the shield with your sonahymnofvalor.pngAA and make it useless.
  • Her ult can be flashed out of, but if you can use your ult right before you get sunned it'll make the duration even, and you can reengage.
  • Run 14.png vs her.
  • Max sonahymnofvalor.png for effectiveness.

VS

Nami

Easy

This is the fake Sona. Your kits are almost identical, except you've gotten nerfed a lot, and she hasen't. So who is the real champion here?

  • A well placed namiQ.png can spell death. It's easy to avoid though.
  • Her namiW.png will heal her if she's in range and uses it on you, back up, don't let her heal get to her, then trade back with a solid sonahymnofvalor.png AA.
  • This is the trick to me, if she uses her namiE.png on herself to land an easier bubble, her adc's damage output goes down. Reengage with a sonaariaofperseverance.png powerchord on her adc and make her wish she wasn't bad.
  • Her ult is simple to dodge, your's isnt.
  • 14.png is strong.
  • Max sonahymnofvalor.png

VS

Poppy

Hard

It's in the name. Just FF at 20

VS

Quinn

Medium

You still won't fight a lot of Quinn because she'll always be a half-assed champion. She can be a threat though.

  • Riot wanted to make her identity from "the duelist adc" into "the anti split push" adc.
  • Avoid taking Harrier damage, you'll see it mark you and you should back off.
  • Trade with her often she can't do much to you.
  • Always ping MIA's she likes to gank a lot.
  • 3.png or 14.png depending on her team.

VS

Sivir

Medium

Not too hard besides the fact that she can avoid your damage.

  • Play around herspellshield.png cool down, she can avoid your sonahymnofvalor.png AA combo because of it.
  • If she spellshield.png your ult, proceed to cry because that trade is GG.
  • She has huge team fight potential, be wary of all in teams combined with sivir.
  • Play on the agro when you can, unless she's laned with an all in support, which she probably will be.
  • Run 3.png to help with her silly engages.
  • Max sonahymnofvalor.png.

VS

Tahm Kench

Hard

Not much you can do here, he's pretty annoying and his adc is unkillable because of him... Just wallow in self pity.

  • He can all in you level 2 with his tahmkenchQ.png 3 stcaks and tahmkenchW.png. Combined with ignite you die every time.
  • Keep brushes warded.
  • Always ping mias because he likes to roam and gank a lot.
  • If you think you're about to kill him, you're not. His shield is crazy strong. Play around it.
  • If he went away, and you see his ult behind you, his jungler is probably with him. Flash and run.
  • Make it out of laning phase, your team fight is way stronger.
  • Run 3.png in most instances.
  • Two points sonaariaofperseverance.png helps.

VS

Taric

Easy

He's too magnificent and beautiful, you'll be stunned by his beauty (for real).

  • Taric's ranges are really short, you have advantage in poke.
  • You never know what he's maxing, most cases it's w. Some Taric's (like me) max heal, and some max stun. But you can never really tell.
  • He gains armor, you damage is magic, play around that.
  • His ulttarichammersmash.png gives his team a mini baron buff. He likes aura's just as much as you do.
  • 14.png helps a lot, but run exhaust if it's better.
  • Max sonahymnofvalor.png

VS

Thresh

Medium

Normally you are a fantastic choice vs. him since he's afraid to trade early depending on how low his adc is.

  • This match up is a completely skilled match up.
  • Watch his ADC if it's something like 236.png or 21.png I'd avoid hooks at all cost and get good at my sonahymnofvalor.png power chord harrass.
  • He sets up ganks easily for his jungler, so ward up well.
  • If he's running ignite be wary of hooks, you can protect your adc far much better than he can.
  • His team fight is good! But late game you offer more to your team in the form of protecting, while he has more cc and peel.
  • If the thresh player is good you'll be in for a hard time.

VS

Tristana

Hard

Annoying little jumping bean, she trades with you super well at all stages of the game.

  • Trade sonahymnofvalor.pngAA's fast with her and back off, she can out damage you with her detonatingshot.png and some AA's.
  • It's impossible for her to freeze lane, so ask your jungler for help.
  • If she's laned with an all in support, two points sonaariaofperseverance.pngother wise max sonahymnofvalor.png
  • She scales well into late game, shutting her down is your job.
  • 3.png is probably better.
  • Keep your sonaariaofperseverance.png Powerchords handy.

VS

Varus

Easy

Immobile but does a lot of damage. Make sure you weave around a lot in a zig zag formation.

  • His Q does a lot of damage, dodging it is essential to win the lane.
  • You can sonahymnofvalor.png AA him often and heal most of his damage back.
  • His passive makes him do a lot of damage, don;t let him get 3 stacks then varusq.png you.
  • He sets up ganks easy with his varusr.png engage. The animation is weird and hard to dodge.
  • Run ignite to win this lane.
  • Max sonahymnofvalor.png

VS

Vayne

Easy

She scales well late, and will usually be paired with an all in type of support. However, Sona does really well at shutting her down.

  • Hit her often with sonahymnofvalor.png to zone her from CS. Your adc should do so too.
  • In all ins, if she ever switches focus, she will lose the trade. Her damage comes from her vaynesilveredbolts.png passive. Make sure she switches a lot and gets dumped on.
  • Keep a Pink ward handy for when she wants to rollie pollie around.
  • Don't be afraid of her till she has enough attack speed to trade back with you.
  • Run 14.png if you can, otherwise 3.png.

VS

Zyra

Medium

You don't see her much anymore, but she's still a threat. She can kill you fast, but you can dodge her skills and she can't.

  • If she aa'd you or your adc before she summoned a plant with her zyraW.pngzyraQ.png, it'll attack the last person hit. Trade fast with a sonahymnofvalor.png AA and back off.
  • Do not get rooted with her zyraE.png or youll die.
  • If you engage first with your sonacrescendo.png youll most likely kill her.
  • Always focus her, shes soft.

ADC Synergy Back to Top

In this section I will go over which ADC's are the best to lane with Sona. Since she is a jack of all trades she's good to lane with mostly anyone. This is just my personal preferences (opinion opinion)

 Caitlyn is literally my favorite ADC to lane with. The constant Poke and harass that comes from this lane makes any enemy ADC and Support crap their pants. Once Caitlyn obtains a BF sword I would suggest having her place 3 of her Snap Traps caitlynyordletrap.png in the horizontal motion blocking the adc and support allowing you to farm safely. Whenever they get close to CS punish them.

There was once a time where Ez and Sona were the premier bot lane. Times have changed but since his reamurgance of coming back into the rift, it is a time for Sona to shine again. The double sheen bot lane is undeniably a lot of damage and will make even 412.png be afraid. Don't be afraid to go for the level 2 engage since you two can definitely win this.

 The amount of mixed damage that comes from a Sona / Corki lane is ridiculous. I'd advise to get a sheen after a sight stone. After such forcing level 6 engages is the best thing to do. Do not be afraid to flash ult if corki has flash. There's probably nothing they can do vs you two.

 I always felt like MF and Sona were made for eachother. MF is a huge lane bully combined with her missfortunescattershot.png makes for easy poke on your powerchords. Use sonacrescendo.png to keep the enemy in line for MF'smissfortunebullettime.png

He's a strong champion in the early game. He really needs kills in order to scale into late game. You two can completely shut down a laner or completely lose it. Use your sonacrescendo.png in order to keep the enemy in line with his lucianR.png. Boom Boom Boom

 Contrary to how it sounds you two do work surprisingly well together. Sona's constant AA harass in coupled with Kalista's passive kalistaQ.png makes your poke that much harder. Also her throwing you into engages allows her an easy sonacrescendo.png. Still kali has been kinda weak this season, but this lane presence is undeniable.

 Not much going on in this lane besides graves' cheese damage. You don't really have to do much since he can usually lane with himself. However, you add to his damage but you won't feel like you contributed much. Still he can make use out of your sonacrescendo.png.

 Nowadays people who pick Ashe, play Ashe. You add to her damage and can protect her from harm. She has a nice laning phase since her AA range is 600 (25 under 51.png.) In combined with both of your ultimate you provide a lot of CC. Also Ashe scales well into the late game, but you're really going to have to look to protect her in team fights.

Another mixed damage poke lane is exactly what Sona loves. These champions brong a lot of mixed CC to the table. You provide a lot to Varus' trading power. Use your sonacrescendo.png to keep them stuck in his varusr.png. Always build a 3504.png for him in order to increase his DPS. You'll rarely have to lane with him, but most people that pick him know what they're doing.

Draven does everything, with style of course. You don't do much for him besides add to his damage. I advice looking for when Draven wants to fight and going off of that. If he dies early, this lane will become hard. You can tell how good your Draven is in the first 3 minutes of the game.

Undeniably so, 8/10 Vayne players will suck. I really wish this champion wasn't as popular as she is. She brings little CC and wave clear to your team and isn't good until she gets a lead, goes even, or you wait till LATE GAME. However Sona is probably Vayne's best support to lane with. Put pressure on the ADC allowing vayne to farm effectively. Notice when she decides to go hard, and use your skills, particularly sonaariaofperseverance.pngsonapassive.png to win trades. Do as much as you can for the baby Vayne.

Probably the best ADC on the Rift atm, Sivir brings a lot of utility to the table. Her goal is to shove lane with her skills and fight in skirmishes which she thrives in. Protect her in team fights and watch her AOE do damage the enemy team can't deny.

Awh Kog Maw is so cute :3. A farmed and even Kog Maw is no joke. With his two item power spike being 3085.pngand 3124.png, Kog Maw will be able to 2v1 no problem. However, with a meta full of assassins we really need to protect the kog in every shape and form to get us to victory. Build according to the enemy team and use your ult defensively.

She's a weird champion at the moment. You guys do a lot of mixed damage but can't fight all that well together. Focus on out shoving and seiging the enemy towers. Use my recommended build and take towers and focus on objectives. She's very strong in the late game due to her kiting power and range, so use your skills offensivley.

While Quinn does have one of my favorite names, she's not my favorite ADC. While she's undeniably strong in solo lanes, bot lane jut does not favor her. Her blind can be a problem and your guy's level 6 burst can be a problem, but I'd rather lane with someone else.

He's my loving and adoring husband. I play a lot of urgot and Sona is just not the support for him.
