so guys the new patch is out and guess what the core item for most sona builds when out :( so here's the alternative that i came across and it has worked for me quite nicely so far. like all supports, once you get to late game, all you can really do is sit there and look good not like your can do 3000 damage in 5 seconds like some other champs. not really gonna do much damage nor can u heal for much. hence to make sure your not completely useless late game, you got auras. especially the spell vamp and the life steal. if you can heal them with your spells then they might as well heal themselves ;) just let them know you have all the auras and they can focus on the attack damage, the attack speed, armer penetration and ability power, and magic penetration. and as well in intense team fights you do want to keep spamming all your spell at max speed so you can maintain all 7 auras very much needed in 5 on 5 fights. more like 4.5 on 5 if your really just supporting.
now for the item explanation:
Archangle = lots of mana = lots of spam = win in team fights. (get this first but no need to rush it)
soul shroud = cool down reduction to everyone = everyone spell spam = win team fights (it also has mana regeneration so its all good and your ult is really useful to give your team the edge. but be wise on when and where to use it)
shield of aegis: sometimes if your team is winning theres no need to get this but get it if the game is tied or your losing, get it as it will make your team live longer and most importantly help you live longer so you can maintain the auras
Will of the Ancients = spell vamp = lifelink for spells = help caster carries and nukes to recover health after they killed one person = kill another enemy champ... maybe
stark's fervor = lifesteal aura = attack damage champs gain health for killing enemy = take out that tank over there
ok maybe the build is not too solid :( but in theory it should work you only problem is farming. so here's a tutorial on farming :D
farming with sona:
so your hymn of valor is cast and do damage spell. so the idea is, hit minions until they're low and then hymn of valor it for money. but a problem with is is hymn only hits the 2 closest targets so as a result, you'll have to A: hug the minion u want dead or B: attack the closes minion. of course option B is better so do option B. my record doing this is about 1000 ish gold going into level 5. first time i recalled that game had 3200 ish gold to spend. but all in all, when innervating locked whet out, so did sona, udyr and soraka now sucks more than ever.
