Threats & Synergies
Very easy to outplay, if he stun you, just activate your E and run away.
Little bit hard but if you can dodge her skills she should be easy as pie.
You don't know what's he doing right now. Just stay away from walls, minions and your adc and hold ready your E to dodge his ult.
He's very hard to counter. If he grabs you, you are to 90% dead without help your adc. Just look around and hold your E ready to dodge.
He can stop your ult with his shield but that's not so hard. Just play around it and exhaust the enemy adc and stun after the shield is down ;)
You can poke but Caitlyn too. It's literally dangerous to trade with her. Better concentrate your fire on the support or save your mana to heal your adc.
Has so much damage and it's like the same as Caitlyn, but he concentrate more on to catch his axes than trade with you.
Just "Ez". Short range, low damage in early. If you cast Q+Poweraccord and he use Arcane Shift -> you hit him. In the late you can 1v1 him.
Her shield is very useful but if you don't do some damage you gain gold from your support item. Be ready with E if he slows you or your adc and Poweraccord+E her -> passive useless :D
His criticals are hurting you and in late the lethality but calm down and play around his critical shot.
Literally a problem but not so great. Poweraccord+W and the damage is simply zero.
Good to play around. If she want to pull out his spears -> Poweraccord+W her.
One of the hardest support to play against. Her shield is stronger than yours, the damage is bigger and her speed buff is literally tilted and overpowered. Stay behind minions and f*** her up.
"Stay behind your minions" don't work by Leona. Stay away from her and let try to miss her E and/or ult and attack back. That's the only way to "counter".
Has high rapid damage but if he use his ult Poweraccord+W him :D
Could tilt you with skills but you can do the same - here comes the poke~
Could be dangerous. Just stay out of her skills.
"Don't stay behind minions" work here very good, easy to play out.
Morganas shield? Don't worry, just focus that target which don't get the shield. If you want to confuse her, target one for 3-5 poweraccords.
Has on all skills more mana cost than you. Just dodge her bubble and make herself out of mana.
Only stay away from her and poke the support.
Only her shield is a counter to you but you can confuse her with Q+W+E+Q+Poweraccord and curls out her shield and then ult her.
Has the same poke power as you. Only poke herself out of mana and maybe her life :D
Weak tank, low heal, skill setup is bad. Only poke him and he will be out of mana. Just careful about his flash+stun
Maybe dangerous but if you can dodge he is very easy to handle. If he catch your adc and the enemy adc comes -> go on the enemy adc with all you got :D
If you stand wrong, she can kill you easily. Just stay out of bomb range and poke herself down.
I don't know how to play against such champion - Sorry.
Long range? Easy for you, poke him.
Could be very dangerous in late game - Stay careful!
Don't play so much against her but she is a chicken if she can't hit you with her strike back feathers
Her plants are stupid. They can outrange you! Just stay save.
THE BUILD IS UNDER PROGESS AND WILL BE FINISHED AT 06/24/2017
I see so many Sona where I think "What are they doing?" or "What bought he/she?".
I play my Sona for some months have her on Level 7 with more than 100k points (okay that's little bit low) and have a 65% Winrate with her.
Here I show you how I build my Sona in the actually season and situation in League of Legends.
First the seals, I have the seal runes of armor cause we fight against an adc. We're squishy and need a little bit defense. Same with the glyphs. Here we build magic resist 'cause we play against ap-supports and maybe ap-midlane. Now the marks. I have double penetration in the marks, 'cause we hit the enemy with spells and auto-attacks. Last but not least the the quintessences. Here I have two of ap (ap is everytime good) and one of armor (we have to compensate armor and magic resist).
First of all we bought the blue support item [spellthief's edge], normal, normal.... If we go back we have to buy the frostfang [frostfang] as fast as we can 'cause why? We get 15 gold per enemy hit and that's more than 8 gold :D
After this we will buy the normal support items like boots, sightstone [sightstone], sweeping lens and the 5-boots. Aaaaaand after that we buy.... Ardent Censer? Wait what? Sure, it's more useful than redemption on Sona. Redemeption is good in teams fights.... but the clear stats are.... wasted. Ardent Censer heal your adc very good up with each auto attack and later in teams fights? Delicious. W -> run in all allies -> all get the buff from Ardent Censer. After that.... only sheen? Hey! Wait before you hit me with something let me explain. We need sheen for the extra prog on our auto attacks. Each time we use a spell (and we use often a spell) we prog sheen. Sounds very good huh? Okay forward... ehm ludens echo? For sure, we could need this extra prog too, movement is nice, ap is nice and the buff <3 but why we won't buy lich bane? 'Cause we need only the "extra damage" and buy first more damage as ap and can use the lich bane prog better, explain: Sheen has a ad prog, Lich Bane a ap prog and scaling and we don't have so much ap. That's why sheen -> ludens echo -> lich bane. I think frostqueen is little bit wasted, you have the ghost but you are fast enough with your E to chase an enemy. Eye of watchers combine two items -> frostfang and sightstone and the result is? Yay an item slot more. In the last item slot I put Banshee at most 'cause the shield is very good and the MR, CD and AP are very good on us. If we have all items, we have 40% CDR ;)
