Hi, this is my first guide, so please tell me what you think and what needs to be improved. This is my short guide to Sona. She is a great support, with lots of poke with her Hymn of Valor, and good sustain in lane with her Aria of Perseverance. Her Crescendo is a great aoe stun that will leave the entire enemy team dancing for joy, and unable to do anything. Enjoy!

I usually focus on gold per 5, cooldown, mana regen, and armor for a support. These help in lane sustain and poke, as well as getting your items quicker. Other viable options include ability power, health, and mana.

The masteries I choose focus mainly on mana regen and mana, cooldown, and health. These help your laning phase go smoother and allow for quicker kills, and greater poke.

Most of the items I chose are based around either ability power, mana/mana regen, health, or armor. These allow you to lead the charge and be able to tank the damage as you use your ultimate. Rylai's Crystal Scepter is a great choice for a mid/late game item because it allows you to chase fleeing enemies, or slow down enemies that are chasing you. Runic Bulwark gives you and your team spectacular armor and magic resist that will help your team win teamfights. shurelya's reverie is a must have with Sona, as it gives great regeneration and a speed boost that helps to catch up to fleeing enemies or engage. Another great item is Mikael's Crucible. This item frees a high-priority teammate from any cc on him, allowing you to win a crucial battle.

Skill Sequence

The skill sequence for Sona isn't that difficult. If the lane is going well, max your Hymn of Valor first, allowing for greater poke and harass in lane. If you are losing the lane, or need more sustain in lane, max your Aria of Perseverance first, giving you that extra sustain. Obviously, max Crescendo asap, and finally, max Song of Celerity last.

So that's basically it, use your poking ability in lane to scare the enemies without taking too much damage yourself. Remember to build health, and always place wards as a support, in the river, and in the tri-bush. Mana regeneration will help your lane immensely, as will cooldown reduction and health. Play Sona to her fullest, make 'em dance!
