Champion Build Guide

[11.18] Sona Build/Guide

By thirstE
DISCLAIMER!!
This build might not be the best for everyone, but it works well for my playstyle. My goal with this build is to keep Sona as a late-game scaling champion, but give her options to build enchanter or burst. Burst for if your team is not great and you need to carry.
Shurelya's vs Everfrost vs Moonstone
Shurelya's
Use Shurelya's if team fight will be quick and the added MS will be enough to keep yourself and your carries safe.

Everfrost
Use Everfrost if the enemy team has many champions that will dive into the backline of your team. You just use Everfrost to cc targets hunting your carries. Think of Everfrost as an AP champions locket with a slightly different way of protecting the carries.

Moonstone
Use Moonstone if your team has a solid front line or if your team fights will be longer. If teamfights are short or there is no front line Moonstone won't be active long enough to be useful.
Haste Comparison
w/ Ultimate Hunter

w/o Ultimate Hunter

Secondary Runes
Both Domination and Resolve are good options. I personally choose Resolve just because games typically end before you get to level 16 which is where having ultimate hunter really shines. Even if you do get to level 16 with Resolve ultimate hunter is only saving you 7-10 seconds, which is 2-3 spell rotations with Sona's passive.
Shard vs Sheen vs Alternator
Level 4 | Q + PC (AA)

Why Build Shard
Sona is obviously a late-game champion, but shard will help her be a threat early/mid game when she is technically at her weakest point. If you are behind skip over the shard to save money. Otherwise, it can be very useful to help you snowball and scale to Sona's OP point quicker.

On-Hit Choice
The alternator is out of the picture instantly due to its high cost for little damage increase. It also has a long CD on when its passive can be used. Sheen and shard are worth the same amount of gold, but shard does a little more damage. Additionally, sheen requires you to cast spells to proc its passive while shard only requires an auto which can be problematic early when Sona has mana trouble. However, you will be forced to sell shard late-game whereas with sheen you can upgrade to lich bane. I think shard is better in most cases because it has the best early game use which will help you snowball into the late game. The only situation when I would pick sheen first is if you plan to rush lich bane first item which isn't ideal in most cases even if you are planning on a burst build.
Burst Build
The burst build is fun and can hard carry, but when it comes to reliability Sona's burst build is aweful. You will have games where you go 25/0 and games where you go 1/15, so be careful with this build especially if you take it into ranked. The only time I would even consider this build is if you get fed out of your mind before you even finish building boots.
