Not Updated For Current Season
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.
Welcome, it's been a long time since I wrote a guide, a la Season 1. But now I come back with years of analyst experience watching the world play supports. One of the supports, Sona, being my all time favorite supports. I am here to guide you a low elo/mmr style of playing Sona all the way up to Plat 1. Guaranteed to help you carry your lane.
Pros / Cons
- OP passive. Your passive has 3 different effects. One inflicts extra damage, one reduces armor/magic resist, and one slows. Your passive is powerful, especially with your early game aggression. You will nuke at level 1.
-Your Auras may seem weak early, but they do help with the lane phase and can even help with level 1-3 team fights, even invasions/defense from invasions are well off with your auras.
-You only scale through out the game. You are going to scale whether your lane does well or not. Your skills scale well with the length of the game and your level. As long as you keep up your levels and have your GP5/Warding. You will be in the game most of the time.
-Your ult is an AOE stun that makes them Dance. As long as you land it on one person in a 1v1/2v2 situation you're good. But in teamfights you want to catch everyone off guard and at least get 3 people minimum with your ultimate.
-Highly recommended champion for beginner supports. It's literally click the button and do something, minus your ult. A very low skill floor, but a seriously high skill ceiling for wanting to master this champion.
- Squishiest support. You will die if you get 3 man dove by a lv 3 jungler and you're only lv 2.
-Zyra does beat you, so stay safe and ward the opposite bush if she's camping from the lane bush.
Runes are somewhat standard, but may be different than what normal supports in low Elo use.
+ Armor Runes: You go Armor Reds and Yellows for your lane and mid game. You are squishy, and the ad will do most of the damage to you half the time so you need to be geared up enough to tank some hits and peel for your ADC.
+Magic Resist Blues: Most of the supports are Magic Damage dealers. They'll deal little magic damage, or in Zyras case, a lot of damage. So be ready.
+Gold Quints: You're gonna be starved for gold all game. This helps you transition while you babysit your ADC.
End of guide. Final notes and words to the guide reader.
This is still a wip as I can still change things around to find even easier ways to make a Sonas job easier and to help win the games for you and all of those in the Fields of Justice.
