Summoner Spells Back to Top

Basic summoner spells for supports, flash is a must for the flash plays and escapes. Then exhaust is better if they have an assassin or just in general its solid, but ignite gives you more kill pressure and it's good to have against a healing support or a mundo or vlad. It also depends on personal preference. 

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

This is my preferred. This is focused on damage output more than sustain. Another option would be windspeakers for the sustain and shielding that works well too. Also you can take the 12 in resolve to get the runic armor as that helps your self healing a lot. These depend on preference and playstyle.

sonapassive.png This is nice and can be tricky to understand completely so read it over. It takes practice to use all the different ones correctly. The most important combo is for damage. Queue it up then hit your q and then autoattack. This does a lot of damage and gets off thunderlords if you have it. The others reduce their damage, and slow. Basically if you are confused try to throw out lots of autoattacks as you spam everything. 

sonahymnofvalor.png This is your main damage source. Tons of poke, focuses champs which is nice, max this first always for lots of extra damage. The mana cost isn't actually that high so you can spam it pretty easily. 

sonaariaofperseverance.png This is for sustain. Gives you (and your lowest health in range ally) health and an aoe shield. The mana cost is high though so don't spam this too much in lane but if your ally or you gets low by all means use it!

sonasongofdiscord.png Oh yeah that spell she has too... This is a nice speedup for chasing people or running away and helps others too. 

sonacrescendo.png Aoe stun that makes them DANCE!!! Very good teamfighting ult. Works great with a lot of other ults (mf being my favorite). Also gives you cooldown reduction oh your basic abilities that works separately from normal cdr which is great! Spam spam everything in teamfights! the auras are good and the damage and sustain output. 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Go this one it's perfect don't go any other. It increases your poke and gives you gold for it. Also ap and mana sustain.

Core Items

    So first priority is get sightstone then ward up (remember to swap your trinket for a sweeper). Then upgrade to frostfang as it gives you more gold and more poke. Then you can just sit on those for a while as there are more important items to buy. Eventually i prefer to go frostqueens and ruby because i like to reduced cooldown on actives and the active from frost queens but eye is a solid choice too for the tank stats and extra item slot. Especially if you are bad about using actives then go eye definitely.
    These two items work great on her. She does a lot of damage to get athenes stacks and then has a heal and shield to use them. Ardent censer gives them attack speed and it increases your healing and shielding power. Plus most importantly it gives you mana regen which you desperately need! Also ap.
    All of these are good unless they have no magic damage. Locket is better in teamfights, but banner i like for the ap and splitpushing power. If you go banner always promote seige minions or caster ones as they will last longer in the SIDE LANES. Then have your team leave that lane. You want their team forced into other lanes not the one that will push by itself. Only exception to this is if you have baron then you can promote the cannon minion as you push cause it'll do crazy damage and be really hard for them to kill.
    Good item for splitpushing, make sure to put in side lanes and tell your team you are going to place it. Also check the range if you want it to push the inhib make sure it's in range. Also put it in bushes or just out of the lane so it maximizes distance it goes but isn't in plain view for the enemy. And again push another lane.
    Both very good for damage they give lich bane increases your passive's damage so your autos hurt a lot!. But you are really squishy.
    All of these or any other tank items are good to fill out a build as you do need some tank stats. They all are good for different things so read them to understand which you want. Adapt the tank item you buy to the game so don't build armor against an all magic (or fed ap) team or visa versa.
    I tend to go magic pen boots, for the damage, but you could go any of the others but be careful with the cdr ones as you will max out cdr with this build so not worth unless you're changing this build
    This is nice to rid allies of hard cc if you practice using it. The mana regen and healing buff are also nice
    This is a fun item! Cheap and you fire out (on a delay) an aoe heal and damage dealer and you can fire it after you die. Pretty cool. If it came with ap it'd be perfect.

Tips and Tricks Back to Top

Sona is good with someone who wants to poke and do damage early but also keep them safe. She can really work with almost anyone. Her ult is great for anyone else who has an aoe ult or something like that (mf, amumu, wukong, illaoi, etc). My favorite is the MF combo because mf does a lot of damage early and in teamfights if you both land your ults you've won the fight even if you were down beforehand. 


The one thing to keep in mind as to when to pick her is she is not a tank even remotely. So your team needs one of those from either top or jungle. So if you don't have one I'd recommend another support. 

She does have the LOWEST base stats in the game so level 1 you can die super easily. Just know that and be careful of early fights. You still output a lot of damage early but you will die pretty fast.
