Sona Dark Harvest is really broken in the late game, especially against squishy targets. Its literally 1 shot potential
Sona Dark Harvest
Ok so the reason why Sona Dark Harvest works, is because of her Passive and Q. Let me explain, Passive: After casting 3 spells, Sona's next attack deals bonus magic damage in addition to a bonus effect depending on what song Sona is currently playing. If the song used is Q: Deals an additional 40% magic damage.
Q: Deals magic danage to the nearest two enemies (prioritizes Champions) and changes her Power Chord to Staccato. When used Sona will also get a small damage buff.
We can then use Sona's Q to empower ourselves while we have stacked our Passive to 3, and therefore with the damage of the Q and the empowered auto attack will do imense amounts of damage on an unsuspecting victim.
In the laning phase you should always be trying to poke your enemy. Try as much as you can to get your Dark Harvest stacks. You should always use your Q just before you use your auto attack, just to get that little bit of extra damage.
If playing against a tanky support, then you should focus the ADC more but always try to just poke as much as you can.
If you get ahead early, then you should use that and zone the enemy ADC and support away, and really use the lead to your advantage. But if you get a bad start, you shoul play a bit more defensiv and wait for mid game. But you should still be poking and supporting your ADC.
Dont shy away from getting kills. Of course dont kill steal your ADC, because then he will probably get mad. But if you can secure a kill that your ADC cant, take it, because later your damage is going to be mad.
A great way to engage a fight with the enemy botlane, is by getting at least one of them with your ult, and then doing the combo with Q and empowered auto attack. Be aware of where your ADC is when doing this, because you want your adc to follow up with more damage to kill the enemy
When mid game comes around, you should begin to do more damage and there will probably come some teamfights, as Sona Dark Harvest you are really strong in the teamfights. You should always try to kill the squishy targets first (ADC, Mid or whoever is squishy).
Again like i said in the laning phase, do not shy away from getting some of the kills. They are a great source of gold, which will make you scale even more and do more damage.
In the late game you should be able to one shot the enemy ADC and midlaner (if squishy) So thats basically all you should be doing in the teamfights. Kill kill kill just kill
