Threats to Sona with this build
|Zed||You counter his W and R with your Q because it follows even if he's not visible. Just dodge his shuriken.|
|Twisted Fate||Dodge with E, Shield with W, Damage with Q|
if you're reading this you obviously want to play Sona Midlane. In the following i'm going to show you some advice with her, the pros and cons playing Sona midlane, some help with combos and the best positions for your early game wards.
Just a little reminder that it teally works. You can see here i switched from the normal support Sona to a more agressive playing one and after that i finally changed to midlane, what shortened the game a lot more.
Low Mana In The Early Game
Don't press Hymn of Valor every time it's available. Only if you really need it for the big minions. Also dont overdue it with a Song of Celerity + Hymn of Valor push combo wasting your mana.
Hymn of Valor Does No Damage
Enemy built magic resistance. Ask for ganking or lane swichting from an AD Player in your team.
I Am Stunned - Too Much CC
R.I.P. - Ask for ganks or try to escape with Aria of Perseverance + Song of Celerity combo.
More useful advice:
- Don't follow like a noob with your Song of Celerity, someone else will come, stun you and kill you
- Don't push too often, relax and listen to your music
- Never try to 1v3 or higher. It's possible if your fed but you still won't win with your dual hit Hymn of Valor and weak autohits
Pros / Cons
+ Very high damage
+ Very high movement speed ( Song of Celerity)
+ Only one skillshot ( Crescendo)
+ Shield and heal, thanks to Aria of Perseverance
+ Still good support in late game
+ Nice music ingame for you and your teammates with DJ Sona
- Very Squishy (Depends on build)
- Autohits do nearly 0 damage
- Horrible waveclear
- Vulnerable to nearly all cc
Combos & Help
Foreword: Power Chord = Auto Attacks with three spells before
Flash + Crescendo
Stuns 0-5 enemies and comes unexpected.
Song of Celerity + Hymn of Valor + Power Chord ( Hymn of Valor)
'Kites' the enemie and hits them quickly from a long range
Song of Celerity + Power Chord ( Song of Celerity) + Hymn of Valor
Works like an Exhaust
Aria of Perseverance + Song of Celerity
Shields you for upcoming damage und gives you the opportunity to escape fast
Recall (B) + Aria of Perseverance
Speeds the process of beeing healed in spawn
Run + Song of Celerity
Lowers the time to get on your lane
Just Vision Ward on the one side (Over the wall) and place a normal ward on the other one. Worked for me the whole time.
