The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Threats to Sona with this build
|Soraka||She has to aim- you dont! you can scale just as much - and your stun is easier to land then her snare|
Supporting as Sona is easy- IF you know the biggest trick in the book for any support main
Psychiatric support. That's right- almost everything on sona is auto aim - and easily done- hence you get to focus on getting your team pumped and ready to not suck!!
its to be noted that sona is a team player- and you do NEED your team to win- your job is to be the nanny - make sure no one is raging - and get them organised - YOU ARE THE BRAIN- YOU ARE A TECHNICAL ADVANTAGE
Runes as sona have two major ways to go - scaling or static
I personally static because of the big beginning advantage which will roll out as you helping you adc farm more- and thus you getting more farm - lets remember your here to empower everyone else- not ks thanks to a silly lich bane
FOCUS SUPPORT - like i mentioned - your goal is to make everyone else OP- you are not the center of attention- you are not the big scary carry!
my tree is focused on this particularly- giving loads of technical advantages to my team - keeping me in game and in fights longer and healing all game long
This is where i get alot of criticism
The big fashion at the moment is lich bane - and although efficient in its own right
I completly disagree with this
new sona players play sona like any other champ - focusing on her unique passive : power chord
This consists of using three spells and using your next auto attack to implment one of the following effects :
- Loads of damage when last spell is Q
- AD Debuff when W is last used
- a Slow when E is last used
these effect are ALL awesome when used well, but concentrating on lich bane means you intend to use the Q version of power chord alot- and do damage- WHICH IS NOT YOUR JOB
- Your job is to make sure that everyone else is fed
Now the start items are pretty basic- spell thief because you want to be offensive so you can poke down - cookies so you dont waste mp on healing you- and ward because vision is all!
A big trick alot of supports use is to hide in bush -thus wards wards wards
For optimal performance you should back when you have around 1300 gold- this permits you to get sightstone and frost fang- thus rewarding your pokes and keeping sight on the ennemy at all time- its also time to switch your trinket-
Next you want to back for 720 gold - and get the tear- so you can build early
follow up by rushing the morellonomicon, because cdr+ ap+ mp regen for 2100 = fun time
as time goes on - get boots, finish the staff - and the rest is more or less maliable - so long as you dont forget to getthe remaining 20% cdr and buttloads of ap
but i go usualy - finish sweeper, get the grail, choose a strategic last item- sell the frostfang and buy last item, my favorite being the rabadon because its a huge boost to ap- and thus huge boost to your entire kit - instead of just your Q ....like lich bane does
