Why ad and ap runes together?

Sona deals magic damage when you press (q) but after that when you hit with 3 stacks you deal ad damage along with some magic damage. At this point with some ad/sheen/3 stacks you deal alot of damage. Lich Bane Also gets benefit from your ad.

Why you are building Statikk Shiv ?

Gives you a great poke damage. Sona is a mobile champion with her (e) and when I play her I seek chances to gank mid alot aswell so Statik gives you more mobility+hit on dmg+crit chance. Crit chance also synergise with our Ap Runes and with 3 stacks you can deal really op damage!

Since I am using AP and AD runes together I am using 2 Armor Pen and 3 AP pen. Also I am aiming to increase gold income while dealing more damage to players who have %40 or less hp. This is the Boom Sona build which is a Glass Cannon build. Means you need to play her careful. I do not recommend this build to players who are new to League of Legends. (Cause if you do this build you are gonna die alot)

Why you are building Essence Reaver and Infinity Edge ?

This build is designed to deal spike damage to targets who underestimate the power of supports. Sona deals really great damage when you build her full ap with lich bane but people dont know that lich bane also gets benefit from ad and dealing crit damage with your 3 stacks + your ap from q + your ad damage almost kills enemies with 1 shot. Teamfights in Narrow places great aswell just ulti2-3 people focus one of em with your 3 stacks and Boom at least 1 of em instantly dies. Boom Sona on Duty!

With this build I never had the chance to make full build due to surrenders on enemy team!

Skill Sequence

Stack 2 spells. Wait for your enemy to come into range.

(q)>>aa>> (Wait Lich Bane CD) >> (W)>>aa (Wait Lich Bane CD) (e)>> (q) >> aa
With this combo you deal 2 x 3rd stacks and most of the enemies dont survive till the full combo.

In teamfights thou you need to stack 3 spells and then ulti as much enemy as you can and use your 3stacks+aa to enemy adc or apc.

Guide Top


Sona's Passive Ability is the most powerful aspect of this build. Always keep your stacks at 2 and when enemy approaches use your q and aa. This build relies on poke so keep poking do not hard engage. If enemies returning base on their turret do not dive. Them returning base is better for you. Even if you are 1 level ahead of your enemies it means you can outdamage them assuming that you leveled q with that extra level.

Boom Sona Build designed for agressive start and for being agressive Whole Game Long!
In laning phase always poke your enemies without hard engages. Always use ulti on jungler who ganks and catch you outpositioned. Do not hesitate just use it then return to base. Your goal is to poke enemies or kill without dying in early stage. If you get 1-2 kills on lane you can buy sheen and sheen means you can deal great spike damsge. Use it wise. First poke your enemies in lane then if you are sure that they cant engage your adc go to river speed yourself up and go q>>aa mid laner and turn back to your lane. Do not overstay and do nothing more. This way you place the fear into enemies minds. In late teamfights you will notice that they tend to focus you (which is great enemies using ultimates on support means you already won the game) and if they dont just burst em! So it is a win win situation.

Ranked Play

First and most important of all this build DOESNT WORK WITH A PASSIVE ADC.
You rely on early poke and getting advantage on lane. When you are poking if your adc still farming mobs and not even aa to enemy... meh visit your mid lane more often. ( I mean all the time :) )

Also you can find how you should play this build in this cideo if you havent watch it earlier.

Pros / Cons

-Insane damage with 3stacks+aa
-Have sustain in lane
-Have sustain and shield and ultimate that makes enemy impossible to dive even if you are losing
-ultimate and 3 stack+aa+crit can 1 shot enemies

-If you get grabbed,grabbed,stunned,snared you are dead
-terrible synergy with passive adcs
-Weak vs long range APC

Since This is a support guide you shouldnt farm yea but in mid game every single support needs some farm in my opinion. So after a won tf or after 1-2 enemy kills if your adc turns base without pushing a lane and if you are sure you have vision stay a bit longer to shove that lane but do not overextend be careful. Instead of getting 6 mob advantage do not give enemy free kills.
