Threats & Synergies
tanky and knocks you up so not worth targetting for poke
this champion is just a troll
Your mobility is crap. GL if you get hooked
just dodge his skill shot is the only way
This ADC is strong as you guys know, but if your ADC or duo ADC is good then its fine
Screw this champ, I just hate it
Tanky and good initiation, cancer
Roots you + auto= low health
HOW LONG IS HER Q DURATION?
not the worst to go up against, id like to play nami supp :)
Other Sona probs don't know how to play so you will have upper hand (Usually upgrades Q)
just dodge her skills but doing so is really annoying
watch out, if you get caught, u either die or waste something. remember, you have really low base health of 483...
Her poke hurts so much ;-;
hurts, stuns, annoying. try veigar support its actually fun too.
I quitted League and not been around much in 2017 but i came back and playing for few months, dont let that make you turn off this guide because this still will be great!
You are a support (obviously), and you will find ap tank/health items ,because I personally hate being squishy and i feel safer and you will too, because of that ap you are not only utility support but you can "kill setup" for your team to take, or you can take it yourself for greater goods later.
Taking kills might seems like a troll but you or any support needs money to support better. Just stay with me and following this you will be even more useful as a support.
This will get your Heal stronger and gives u some mana regen, nice.
Build Liandrys and finish off frost queen's claim whenever you can.
Liandry will give you that extra health and ap, it will also burn so you don't let an enemy run off with the thinnest health.
After that, I usually go with rod of ages since it will give me more health and ap over time plus it has extra mana but could replace for rylais for slow which can be good too
You probably managed your shoes yourself, the last item will be Lich bane for obvious reason, its just good item in general, mana, movement speed, ap, and also will do bonus damage after casting a spell which is perfect with sona's Q+passive as you all know.
Alternate items i've put just incase are Nashor's tooth which will just keep you attacking until you have your Q cooldown back.
Redemption for extra support but I dont find much use for it.
Theres Hextech protobelt for extra ap and health.
Starting with W will make Jungler some easier times. Even if junger dont start at bottom, take W to heal early for poke and start building up your passive, then when it hits level 2, upgrade Q and you will probably at 2nd passive/heal twice by the time you get Q and start your job.
E is rarely used but just in case upgrade it at 5th and max it last.
If you see an unusual support such as shen, yasuo, and you get the idea... it will be difficult since they're not really support or adc and your health is very low so try to play very safe.
Very late game when everyone is at full items you should get elixirs like or not, but would be nice if you have extra gold.
If you are losing, try to survive untill very late game to get full items, and if your teammates are not braindead then you might have a chance.
Not so much of easy champion to go up against isn't it? but as long as your jungler and adc is decent enough you will do fine, after all, its a duo lane.
Just never give up, stay positive and most importantly don't criticise on anyone and you will have better game as well as your team.
