Utility: 9


I won't be providing gameplay advice just yet, simply because I can't consider myself a professional at Sona until I play her for a couple weeks or so. But, I will provide my rationale below.

MASTERIES
I went with an Offensive primary and Utility Secondary masteries, while focusing on upgrading Rally and Clarity. This additional attack boost will certainly help throughout the game, and you really aren't missing much in the utility field aside from CD reduction, which is covered with the items.

SUMMONER SPELLS
I chose clarity and rally. Most people neglect rally, as it is a teamfight ability with a medium length CD, but rally really works with Sona. I went with clarity to ensure that you will be able to farm for extended periods of time ($$$). This is especially important early game.

RUNES
I decided not to go in depth with the runes, simply because rarely do people ever follow them word for word. I made point in mana regen and cool down reduction. You can easily go for CD quints, but I found that not needed.

SKILLS
Hymn of Valor will help with farming early game. Just be careful of ganks, and don't get in range of any stuns or taunts. You are very, very fragile early game. I then went with Song of celerity, which helps in case of gangs. I then went with Aria of pPrseverance. I prioritized Hymn of Valor, and let the W and E moves balance out. Of course, pick Crescendo as often as possible.

ITEMS
1. MANA REGEN (to build tear of goddess)
2. COMPLETE TEAR OF GODDESS and BUY BOOTS
3. COMPLETE MANAMUNE
4. COMPLETE BOOTS OF SWIFTNESS
5. SHEEN
6. TEAR OF GODDESS
7. BLASTING WAND
8. COMPLETE ARCHANGEL'S StAFF
9. COMPLETE LICH BANE
10. ZEAL
11. PHAGE
12. SHEEN
13. TRINITY FORCE

At this point the build is complete. You can build Rylai's crystal scepter if you need to (it is great for slowing multiple enemies and adding AP and much needed late game health).
The odds of completing this build, however, are low. But be aware, if you don't farm constantly and successfully as Sona, you won't do well at all.
