Summoner Spells Back to Top

Even after the nerf, 3.png is the perfect spell for a duo bot lane. You can take 14.png if you want some added lane pressure and kill potential, although the utility of ignite it gonna fall off later in the game, unless they have champions like 8.png36.png266.png.

Cunning 


5 points in wanderer because you won't need to 5 extra dmg to minions. 

Secret stash for the extra potion effectiveness

Meditation because Sona is a very mana hungry champion and the extra mana regen can mean the difference 
between saving your ADC with the W or let him die because you were out of mana. 

Bandit is a must for all supports because it will supplement your income. 

You can take intelligence or precision. If you are more poke oriented, take precision. If you like to stay back and 
heal, take intelligence. 

Windspeaker's Blessing is just the best keystone for Sona. The extra heal and shield means that both components of your sonaw.png will be strengthened. Adding all the items you will build, your W will heal and shield for crazy amounts of damage. 


Resolve 

5 points in Recovery to help you sustain in lane.

Explorer to help you roam.

Runic armor for its crazy synergy with your sonaw.png

Insight for increased playmaking ability with 4.pngsonar.png or peeling for your ADC with 3.png.

Power Cord  sonapassive.png: It's really important to know how to cycle through your passive skills and using the right one for the right situation. Let's say your team is chasing someone. In that case, you will want to sonaq.pngsonaw.png to get your passive count to 2, then use sonae.pngAA to slow them down. Rinse and repeat that skill sequence for OP slows. On the other hand, if a Yi or Draven is fighting you and your ADC, sonae.pngsonaq.png for MS/added AA damage, then sonaw.pngAA to reduce their damage dealt. You will usually use all your skills in 2-3 seconds so it's important to look at your cooldowns. 


Hymn of Valor sonaq.png: Your poking skill. In lane, you want to abuse it and use it every time it's off cooldown. With a 850 range, you can use it at 800-850 range for free harass. Also be sure to give the aura to your ADC :) 


Aria of Perseverance  sonaw.png: With 1000 range, you can easily heal people and save them from what would appear to be certain death. Keep in mind however that you do not choose the target of your heal so in some cases, it's best if you wait for your intended target to fall to the lowest %HP or to get out of range of your other teamates. The passive is an AoE shield which is OP if your team is grouped as 5. This skill has a large mana cost so don't spam it too hard in lane. The opportune moment to use it is when your ADC is below 100%HP (say 90%) and he is about to get traded. The shield will prevent some damage and the heal can bring him up to 100%HP. 


Song of Celerity sonae.png:  Use it to move around map or speed your teamates up. Pretty simple. 

Crescendo sonar.png: This skill has a long travel time so be sure to aim it when the enemy is at least at 60%~ of max range. If you aim it at a fast moving target at max range, they'll just walk out of him, making you look like a total fool xd 
Also, this skill doesn't work on minions or monsters so don't try to use it for a desperate nexus save or baron steal.

VS

Alistar

Medium

If you can survive his WQ combo, the lane is pretty much won. If you can't, you will be in for a rough time. Stay outside of his W range. Also, if you are shoving them early, watch out for his "Flash+Q+W into his turret" combo. 

VS

Ashe

Medium

Her W poke is annoying. Stay behind minions to avoid taking free damage. Once she hits 6, you want to not overextend too much to avoid getting CC'ed + ganked losing tower. 

VS

Bard

Easy

Don't get hit by Q and you're golden 

VS

Blitzcrank

Hard

Blitz will have more pressure than you in lane. Stay behind minions to avoid getting pulled. If you get pulled, flash away immediately. If your ADC gets pulled, you can only hope he gets better at dodging hooks as the game progresses :^)

VS

Draven

Hard

At levels 3+, he will just try to out trade you. Ask for gank or focus him down with your R+ your ADC's R or he will double kill you. 


VS

Ezreal

Medium

He isn't that much of a threat. Just make sure he uses his E before ulting him or he will just E away. 

VS

Janna

Easy

Free. 

VS

Jhin

Easy

Watch out for his 4th shot. Otherwise, he is pretty harmless and you can get free harass off him with your Q

VS

Malzahar

Medium

Pre-6 is free. You get easy poke on him and if he uses W, just run away and it's free voidling gold for you :D 

After 6, you want to stand away from him because him using R or flash+R is a guaranteed successful gank unless your ADC can interrupt his ult or your jungler makes a godly countergank. 

VS

Miss Fortune

Medium

If you dodge her Q, lane is easy. Watch out for her R though, it can kill you faster than you would expect it

VS

Soraka

Easy

Focus her. Their botlane probably wont be able to kill you, but you will be able to kill them. If you can land an ult on her, then it should be an easy kill. 

VS

Thresh

Hard

Getting hit by his Q is literally a death sentence :/

Stay behind minions and even if he misses his Q on a minion, stand back to watch for his Q onto minion+W+E+R combo.
