Low elo Sona
Not Updated For Current Season
Hi, this is gonna be my first guide. I'm not american or english so sorry for my bad english.
This guide is for Sona's Player in low elo.
I'm a Euw player that got stuck in elo hell (Bronze in my smurf) and my main is support, so i know how to play well support in low elo.
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Gold
9 Greater Seal of Armor - It's great to the laning phase since the burst of the bottom lane is the adc, so it will prevent less damage taken and it will give Sona tankinnes.
9 Greater Mark of Magic Penetration - It makes the Power Chord more burster with the Hymn of Valor aura.
9 Greater Glyph of Magic Resist - give to Sona more tankiness against Ap supports like Leona, Nami, Zyra... and Ap champions like Ahri.
3 Greater Quintessence of Gold - give Sona more money (more important early game) for wards and compensate the farm lost.
Offensive - Gives CDR (great on Sonafor better sustain in laning phase).
Defensive - Gives Sona Armor, Magic Resist and Hp (tankiness).
Utility - Gives Sona Gold, CDR, Mana regen ( Sona is very mana hungry), Experience and CDR in items.
The Blue Sona ( I call this build " The Blue Sona " cuz all items are blue, except the ruby sighstone and the trinket):
Ruby Sightstone - Very comun in the support items because gives wards and refils in the shop, so don't need to spend more money in wards.
Iceborn Gauntlet - Very good for chasing enemies, gives Sona Ap, Armor, Mana...
Frost Queen's Claim - First item to purchase, gives Sona gold per time and gold for spell or attack dealt to an enemy (10 seconds Cd).
Ionian Boots of Lucidity - Gives Sona CDR and Movement Speed (very good).
Deathfire Grasp - Gives Sona alot of Ap and CDR
Oracle's Lens - clears areas for do baron and dragon (OP).
Liandry's Torment - gives alot of magic penetration, Ap and Hp.
Situational Items ;):
Frozen Heart - when enemy adc is feed like Vayne cuz will reduce her Attak Speed thats the key of Vayne late game Burst.
Athene's Unholy Grail - better mana regen and Ability Power.
Banshee's Veil - Enemy team poke very strong like Nidalee.
Locket of the Iron Solari - better sustain and the shield of the passive
With the "Blue Sona" you got 40 % CDR or close like 38% in core items ;D.
You must level up first the Q for better harass with the passive, but sometimes you need to upgrade first the W, when its a hard lane that need very good sustain like with a Draven and plaing against Blitzcrank and Miss Fortune but you will know when its need.
This abilities make Sona a good support champ (sustain):
Power Chord - After Sona cast 3 spells her next attack will deal magic damage (this damage scales with her level) and gains an additional effect with the current aura.
Hymn of Valor - Best spell of Sona until 6, deals magic damage and scales with the level of the skill. When Sona is playing Hymn of Valor (Aura) nerby allied champions gain additional damage and ability power ( Scales with the level of the skill )and the passive Power Chord deals double magic damage.
Aria of Perseverance - This skill is the one who makes Sona a good support, because gives sustain, armor and magic resist (Double of the Aura) to the lowest Hp allie (in range ofc) when ativated. The aura of Aria of Perseverance ives nearby allied champions armor and magic resist. When Power Chord is done to an enemy champion with Aria of Perseverance aura it makes that champion lose 20% of his damage for 3 seconds.
Song of Celerity - Sona gives movement speed when ativated for 1.5 seconds for all nearby allied champions. Nearby allied champions gains movement speed when Song of Celerity aura is up. Power Chord with Song of Celerity slows the enemy champion hit.
Crescendo - Sona's ult force enemies in the area dance (stun) for 1.5 seconds dealing magic damage.
Pros / Cons
Sona's Pros and Cons
High Sustain with
Strong CC on teamfights with Crescendo
Power Chord combined with auras for cool effects
It's hard for new
Squishy (that's why you need tankiness)
Very Mana Hungry
Hard to escape without Flash and Crescendo
Creeping / Jungling
Doesn't farm! ONLY IN MID LANE
Very Very hard jungler champ but possible.
Sona is a champions that alone can't do **** unless warding (LOL), Sona in my opinion is the most teamworker champion in League of Legends because in teamfights her Auras are so strong and can help win.
Sona's best skin is Arcade Sona because:
The splash art is AwEsOmE
In-game abilities are AwEsOmE
So it's end of this AwEsOmE build! Tell me what should I do, like new builds or more information of this one. Bye ;D.
