* Range:


* Sona Sona's Passive Power Chord Power Chord is very strong if leveled up quickly. While she is suited to fight against multiple champions at a time, she however does not survive a lot. Consider your possibilities before each game.
* Sona can be played as a DPS, Ability Power or Support Champion. Each Type of build is a unique gamestyle in itself and requires to test the builds beforehand.
o Building the new Innervating Locket Innervating Locket, a Philosopher's Stone Philosopher's Stone and building other supportive items increases her already high Support abilities to a maximum. Her variation of Auras and each power of her abilities are increasing her support factor even further.
o Her Passive enables damaging enemies with auto attacks and focusing, while her abilities remain certainly usable for each situation. It requires however the most experience to master.
o The AP ratios for her abilities are strong and her low cooldowns enable perfect usage of her auras quickly while dealing good damage and enabling quick aura switching.
o Though Sona excels at pushing in group play, sustained aura rotation depletes her mana pool quickly. Taking blue buff is ideal for truly making her presence felt.
