I found Sona a little over a month ago and have experimented with a few builds. I decided to make my own and i did surprisingly well. The reason i made this is because Sona is free to play this week and I have seen so many terrible Sona's it isnt funny. This is my first build ever so please be gentle. Also I am all for constructive criticism.

Pros / Cons


    Awesome support character
    Does high damage
    Heals like crazy
    Can win the game for a team

    Very squishy
    When oom useless
    Heals are pathetic early early game
    A bad Sona can lose the game.

This is the build i have nearly every single game. With the occasional change of items

I start off with a Meki Pendant and 2 Health Potion. Then i rush a Morello's Evil Tome. I then go with Ionian Boots of Lucidity. After that %90 of the time i get a Rabadon's Deathcap if i am playing with a lot of casters on my team or we are getting thrashed i will get a Will of the Ancients. Then i follow up with a Lich Bane. and 2 Rabadon's Deathcap to finish it up. if it ever gets as far as having 2 Rabadon's Deathcap then i would sell the Will of the Ancients and get my 3rd Rabadon's Deathcap.

Since i havent played for a very long time i dont have much ip. so i devote all of it to runes. With the ocassional champion. When i play Sona i have pure mana regen runes. This is so that i dont have to worry about spending money on a mana regen item.

9 greater mark of replenishment
9 Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration
9 Greater Glyph of Scaling Mana Regeneration
3 Greater Quintessence of Scaling Mana Regeneration

or you can use this

Since i tried many builds with Sona i tried the ad build. i particularly liked the fact that i could crit with her. so i also use this as well

9 Greater Mark of Critical Chance
9 Greater Seal of Critical Chance
9 Greater Glyph of Scaling Mana Regeneration
3 Greater Quintessence of Scaling Mana Regeneration
3 Greater Quintessence of Critical Chance

use the Greater Quintessence of Critical Chances if u dont mind having to be oom more but have around 17ish crit chance.

If you choose the choose the crit chance runes i suggest u change the first 3 points in offesive from Archmage's Savvy to Deadliness
If someone comes across a better rune build for please tell me.

Skill Sequence

With my skill sequence i always get my Hymn of Valor first then my Aria of Perseverance. From then on you should be asking your laning partner or assessing the situation that you are in. if your getting your *** harassed then upgrade your heal if you have no trouble raping them, rape them some more. i suggest you always get your Song of Celerity at some point before lvl 6. As you will need it in ganks.

Summoner Spells

I go with Heal and Teleport as i found that as a support character nothing helps more in a teamfight than a stupid amount of health. Teleport is handy for those times when your pushing top and see a squishy teemo taking your bottom tower and you decide to teleport. start with Crescendo then Hymn of Valor and auto attack while using to chase him down Song of Celerity. you may not get a kill but you saved the tower. At a point i was using Clarity but decided against when i realised that all sona should have is Heal and if you have mana regen runes then you will be fine. Someone else can get Clarity if they really need it.

Early Game

Start off with a Meki Pendant and 2 Health Potions. Rush to the bush furthest from you in your lane. Try to be out of the fountain before 10 seconds. You know your on time if you get there at the 50 second mark or earlier. After I leave the fountain I unlock my Hymn of Valor and use it until i get my Power Chord. Once the gank is over (hopefully you have won it) see if you can afford a amplifying tone. If you can't just go back to the tower and wait for your minions. If your pushing then keep upgrading your Hymn of Valor and when you get your Power Chord put on your Hymn of Valor aura and attack (it does double damage with that aura if you didn't know that). Once i can afford a Morello's Evil Tome i go back unless im 200 gold from getting Boots of Speed. just keep healing and going back when you have enough gold for your next item. When you recall you should assess what your enemies are doing. Are they tower hugging if so quickly run back up there with your Song of Celerity. If their attacking your tower Teleport up there and use your Crescendo then Hymn of Valor. And auto attack the **** out of them. After you have your ionian boots assess your situation. Would you and team do better mid game with a Will of the Ancients or do they just need 500 damage and 400ish heals(i forget) with a Rabadon's Deathcap. oh yeh i forgot, if your having large mana problems get blue buff and own.

Mid Game

This is once you have your Rabadon's Deathcap If the game is going well then you will have your Lich Bane. just keep goin with your build and soon you will be doin enormous amounts of damage but you can be killed in half a second. Some people say "get survivability" i say "kill them faster". With your Lich Bane you will be killing people left right and center.

Guide Top

Late Game

If you have gotten to your 2 Rabadon's Deathcap Im guessing you lost the start and decided to push at the end. With a second Rabadon's Deathcap you can 3 shot a tower with your Lich Bane. At this point you have probably deided to recall by the Rabadon's Deathcap then you Teleport back up and 3 shot some towers 5 shot the nexus with your team and win.
