Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Threats to Sona with this build
|Annie||Often check her stun passive stacks.|
|Poppy||Try to not dive unless her E is in cooldown.|
|Sona||Poke her more than she pokes you, if she has no balls, she's going to max W, still, care adc.|
How to burst and masteries choice.
When you want to burst a bit, make sure to prepare 2 or 3 Power Chord stacks, I like to prepare two stacks, hit an auto, use Hymn of Valor then hit the passive charged auto, the 3 hits procks
, nice, isn't it?
An alternative Thunderlord's Decree is using Windspeaker's Blessing , it provides more sustain during teamfights and laning phase, and you don't need to hit two autos to prock Thunderlord's Decree and since you don't need to hit two autos, you can retreat quicker so you don't get poked back ^^
When not using Thunderlord's Decree there is two ways to manage your passive :
-get 2 stacks on Power Chord then use Hymn of Valor then the charged auto.
-get the 3 stacks on Power Chord (prefear the blue one), wait for the cooldown on your Hymn of Valor then auto once, then use your Hymn of Valor.
Your best bet is to go with Exhaust since your only CC comes from your purple Power Chord and your Crescendo, that way, you can secure more kills for your team.
But if you allready took Thunderlord's Decree and you still want more D, you can still take Ignite, it dosn't hurt (well, yest it does obviously, but it dosn't hurt your plans ^^).
Using your supp item.
Try to make the most use possible of Frost Queen's Claim passive, POKE A LOT using Hymn of Valor if not against a CC heavy botlane.
Remember that before upgrading it to Frost Queen's Claim, your supp item ( Frostfang and Spellthief's Edge) can't prock gold on champs and turrets for 12 seconds after you last hit a minion, so let the farm to your adc, sometimes, when he isn't there, it's better to let 1 or 2 minion die to continue to prock it's passive on enemies.
Try to make use of Frost Queen's Claim active to get vision and prevent ganks during the laning phase, later on, you can still use it to help your mates chasing or to get assists from far away ^^
And obviously, don't forget to make good use of your Sightstone and your Sweeping Lens/ Oracle Alteration to keep the vision adventage !
Some times, you want to buy a Vision Ward to put in the river bush, it saves up a trinket's use to unward, and it saves up a lot of uses of your Sightstone so you can use it to ward the tribush or the wall bushes ^^
Go for the damage, forget that you're a supp, your supp item gives you so much gold that you can build AP like you want !
Gou can roam earlyer than you think, so if your botlane gets boring, go get assists elsewhere.
Basicly with this build, you're a POKE and VISION god, and you provide a big amount of sustain and mobility during teamfights ^^
