Champion Build Guide

Enemy teams hate her! Win games with one simple build!

By Mysterlool
Introduction and Basics
Hello there,

my nickname is Mysterlool. I have been playing Sona a lot ever since she came out. I consider her an easy to learn, hard to master champion and one of the best supports in the game. She is also extremely fun to play and relax with while playing. My highest rank achieved was Diamond 1 on EUNE server. Currently, in season 11 I aim to reach grandmaster/challenger rank finally (playing fill only), that is if I find enough time to play. I hope you like my guide/build and in advance sorry for any grammatical mistakes you might find while going through it.

Sona is one of the best supports out there, who offers the one single thing that the others do not. She can almost all the time support more than one ally using her auras and spells. I want to make this build as easy to read as possible and as easy to be understood as possible. So let's dive right in. When playing Sona it is all about sustain and movement speed, dealing great early (late) game damage, and also being able to support more people at once, with the use of your spells. She is well suited for aggressive early game playstyle with ignite granting her high kill potential.

Easy gold/plat elo games examples (old items) -

Early Game Back to Top
As stated in the above chapter, there is not a lot to write about here. You always concentrate on sustain and movement speed. You need a great mana pool and mana regen to be able to spam your spells all the time. Do not forget, your spells refund mana when near allies! You might go out of mana fast if you don't focus on sticking to your teammates.

In the early stages of the game, you almost always max Q and try to poke the enemy to maximize your gold income. You max W only when you need to and your adc is getting hard beating, although your healing in early levels won't be as effective as in the late game (with your mythic item - Moonstone Renewer).
Mid and Late game Back to Top
There is not really a lot to write about the mid or late game either. You just do the usual Sona stuff. Run around your teammates, try to cover them all with your auras and spam spells. Doing all that you shouldn't forget to either put down the wards or clear them.

Remember you do not go into the team fight first, Sona is not a tank champion and your main role is to stay behind the team and try to boost them and also secure the kills. If your team needs some extra damage, you can always build Lich Bane in combination with Liandry mythic item (replacement for Ardent). All in all, Lich Bane is a really strong item, of which the potential and the damage shouldn't be forgotten/looked over, build it even when you don't plan to build Death Cap.

Do not use the ultimate immediately in a team fight, use it when you are 100% sure to hit more than 2 enemies. The only time you use your ultimate outside the team fight, on a single target is when you must kill an overfed enemy and group up on him. You can also save your ultimate to protect your adcs from getting shut down, that is when the adc is capable of carrying.
Final Words Back to Top
With all that being said I thank you for going through my build/guide and wish you all the best and fun while playing. Also if you liked my guide, I'd appreciate you giving the guide thumbs up and telling your friends about it.
