Summoner Spells Back to Top

Flash because its flash.

I always take exhoust because it gives a nice slow,AS reduction and dmg reduction ! Unlike Ignite, Exhoust is good in the laning phase, mid game and late game.
Ignite:Y ou can take ignite but exhoust will always be the better option! They changed the working of ''grievious wounds'' and now it only gives SELF HEALING reduction ! Before the nerf you could use this item against healers like Nami and Soraka but this wont counter them anymore ! Ignite also falls off late game. I don't recommend taking ignite..

Masteries Back to Top

 You can switch MEDITATION to ''MERCILESS'' for extra damage, but I prefer the mana regen on Sona. You can also switch ''PRECISION'' to ''INTELIGENCE'' if you want 45% CDR,but i don't think the extra 5% has alot of impact i take the extra armor/MR Pen because,Sona deals quite alot of damage ! ''BANDIT'' <> ''DANGEROUS GAME'', Because we will AA alot as sona to poke you can get alot of gold from BANDIT, i pref the extra gold over 5% health and mana after a kill/assist.

Most of the time you want to  Max Qsonahymnofvalor.png first because this ability gives alot of poke potentional and deals alot damage later in the game when you picked up some items.

Now you can choose between maxing sonaariaofperseverance.pngorsonasongofdiscord.png first,when you're  facing heavy poke champions like Nidalee,Karma and maybe cassiopeia etc etc. you should max your W second,this will give you a nice shield to absorb some damage and a heal to stay healthy.
You should also max your W second when you get bullied out of lane which causes you to stay in tower.

You  can max E second when you're snowballing and/or facing high mobility champions like Kalista !

When you're totaly getting destroyed in lane you have to max W to stay alive and farm.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Starting items..

Core Items

    Buy this as your first item,this is something i don't like because wards are really usefull but if you don't you will run out of mana after 3 abilities.
    These are your CORE items,this does not mean that you have to buy them in this order ! But you will always end up having these item under your belt at some point in the game
    This is what your final build will look like in most of your sona games.
    This is a great item on Sona,it gives an MR aura,flat MR,AP,HP,HP regen.Its just a really nice item.
    Finished build vs CC

Situational Items

    You can buy this in replace of Locket if you don't need MR but armor.The only con of this item:Its pretty expensive..
    You can buy this as your last item if you're more likely going to win,this is just more damage and it won't provide your team anything so i only recommend buying Rabadon's when you're more likely going to win
    You can buy this instead of Banner of Command but i like the Banner more because it also gives AP which is really usefull on Sona
    If you need more armor you can buy Randuins Omen.This is really usefull against champions who rely on their crits like Tryndamere Yasuo Draven because of the -10% dmg
    Nice items if you need more MR
    I personally like the Athene's Unholy Grail more because it gives alot more mana regen,you can buy this but its likely that you'll have mana problems early-mid game
    No.Don't buy this item.
    MUST BUY ! THE PLUS 15% SHIELD AND HEAL POWER IS JUST TOO GOOD ! Since you have a AOE shield,this item can be REALLY good when you have an attack speed reliant team..For example:Quinn top+Varus mid+ADC than the AOE attackspeed from Ardent cencer will be really usefull !
    This item also has a +15% shield and healing boost passive. But the ardent cencer passive and this one do not stack. I build this item when Im facing a Thresh,Leona,Nautilus.. This item is amazing when facing high-CC kits.Keep in mind,the passive of Mikeals and Athenes unholy grail do not stack ! Don't buy both of them.
3092.png Is a MUST BUY ! This item is just TOO good,huge slow + true sight.Always buy this item !
3100.pngThe stats on this item are really good for sona, AP,Mana,CDR and movespeed..But than,when you read the passive,the true OP-ness is revealed ! ''After using an ability your next AA will deal 75% of your AD+50%of your AP on hit'' Sona's passivesonapassive.png gives extra damage to her next attack,her Q sonahymnofvalor.pnggives extra AA damage + lichbane and you'll absolutely murder all the squishies from the enemy team ! This happens every single game,no one expects the banana,uh i mean damage.
3174.pngAlso a MUST BUY[when not facing lockdown-cc] for sona ! It gives 20% CDR,60AP,25MR and 100% base mp5..And the passive is just AMAZING for sona! Mana regen is love, mana regen is life :)
3020.png This is my personal favorite boots option on sona,just because you dont need more CDR bcause this build already has 45% and the extra movespeed from mobility/swifties boots isn't needed either because of your Esonasongofdiscord.png
3222.pngBuild this item instead of Athene's Unholy Grail when you're facing high-lockdown CC like Leona,Nautilus ! Don't buy both items ! The passives don't stack.

Playstyle Back to Top

Early game: 

Sona is ALL about that early game damage,to Snowball your way to victory! As sona you want to poke as much as possible ! Let your adc farm while you're poking, tell your adc to freeze so the enemies have to come into the middle of the lane,which makes it alot easier to poke ! Always place a pink ward in tri bush or normal bush [depends on what side you are on] and keep the dragon area warded.

Mid-late game:Heal allies,poke enemies and bait out teamfights.Sona is a teamfight monter since all her abilities are AoE or auras.Land a good ult and the teamfight is yours, fail your ult and the teamfight is mostlikely lost when you are behind. Make sure to keep everyone in  your ability auras,every ally inside the aura will increase the duration of it [max 5 sec].
Keep baron,dragon warded and try to remove as much wards as possible,because wards win games! Always carry a pink ward with ya.

Tips & Info Back to Top

Make sure your allies are in the aura of your abilities when you use them. sonahymnofvalor.pngsonaariaofperseverance.pngsonasongofdiscord.png

A well-timed Wsonaariaofperseverance.png  will grant you maximum survivability.Press W while taking dmg,this will make sure that your shields absorbs a portion of the damage,than you don't have to spam your W to heal up yourself and your adc, it costs quite alot of mana.



sonapassive.png:After casting 3 basic abilities, Sona's next basic attack deals 13 - 192 (based on level) (+ 20% AP) bonus magic damage, with an additional effect depending on the last basic ability cast.. Your passive is up when you there's a Blue/Green/Purple ring around Sona.The passive has the same colour as the most recently used ability.For example,if your passive is blue,than use Esonasongofdiscord.png,now your passive will be purple.
Blue passive effect: Power Chord deals 40% more damage.
Green passive effect:Power Chord reduces its target's damage output by 20%(+2% per 100AP) for 3 seconds.
Purple passive effect:Power Chord slows its target by 40% (+4% per 100AP) for 2 seconds.

Make sure you use the Blue passive [from Q] when poking in lane,+40% damage is quite a lot.
When you're about to get assasinated by a Katarina,Zed,LeBonk try to use the Green passive[from W] for the damage reduction.
When chasing enemies like Kalista you should use the purple slow passive[from E],the slow will keep them close to  you and your adc. 

This is what your passive looks like:
Blue passive     Green passive          Purple passive
Sona Blue Passive.png         Sona Green Passive.png               Sona Purple Passive.png

Pros and Cons Back to Top

CONS:

Very squishy
CC = Dead sona
Most of the time you'll need to flash to land a nice ult
Needs to get in AA range of the enemy adc to deal dmg bcs of her passivesonapassive.png
Great teamfights

PROS:
Nice dmg [I can 1v1 adc's or mid laners sometimes xD]
Decent engage/disengage                  
One of the best ults in the game, being an AoE stun   
Decent heal/shield           
Nice movespeed buff  
Great Poke

GODLIKE TIER: 110.png 81.png 119.png429.png
119.png:Did that just deal 75% of my HP with just one empowered AA? Yes, that's right.
81.png:Poke,Poke and oh yeah,poke.
110.png:Another godlike poke champion, the ult of varus is very nice when combined with sona's ult. When varus ults both of them,you do the same and they really can't move untill they respawn.
429.png:When kalista ults it's really  easy to land your ultimate because you can just jump into their faces and ult.Wait until the knockup's duration is over for max usage out of both ults.

DECENT TIER:18.png 222.png 236.png 21.png 22.png 67.png96.png

67.png:Maybe I should've just put her into the ''Godlike tier'' but thats mostly because vayne is just a really good adc. She doesn't do anything special combined with sona but Sona Vayne works really well so,yeah.
22.png:Sona ult+Ashe ult = 4~5+ sec stun
236.png:High damage output combined with Sona.
96.png: Kog maw, oh dear, this champion is just flat-out retarded. He's OP as fck. Why I didn't put him in the godlike tier ? He doesn't do anything special combined with Sona, and maybe  supports like Lulu Soraka or Janna are better with kog bcs he needs protection from assassins.

GARBAGE TIER:15.png29.png133.png
15.png:0 synergy here.Short ranged,low poke,low early game damage. Ok her Q is nice poke but its easy to dodge.

29.png:No poke,low range,low early game damage.
