Her Q, deals damage to two targets, super easy. You press Q and if there is a nearby champion it automatically hits them. Power Cord modifier- your aa does 40% more damage
Her W, heals and gives a short lived shield. See i am keeping this simple. Power Cord modifier- your aa does a short lived damage reduction to the target.
Her E makes you and those around you run faster. Power Cord modifier- your aa does a slow to the target.
Her R, is a stun but Riot decided that just a stun would be boring so they made it into a dance-stun-button….ability.. Whatever it is a area of effect stun with dancing.
Now i will add as a side note, if you are having issues staying alive or are getting bullied a lot in lane replace the Linchbane with Redemption. It is a pretty sweet item on her.
For the Video on her items check out my video I did on her:
Now you may ask when should i do this, when is a good time to poke? Well boys and girls the best time is to punish them for taking their CS, when the ADC is going to last hit, that is when to use your Q. the ADC will either miss the cs because they ran away from you or they will take the CS and will be punished for it.
Lets say you are late to the fight, so as long as you heal or speed boost at least one of the people who attacks the enemy champion, you get a assist. Makes since right? Put another way, if there is a chase going, and you speed boost your way for a heal on a teammate that did not really need it for the kill, you still get the assist. I have done that numerous times where i did not help in the fight but i did get off one heal right before the fight ended so i was awarded for the support.
Sonas ult is a stun not a snare or slow, this means Miss fortune, Jhin, Vel-kaz, and other champions with similar ults can be interrupted and affected by her ultimate. A amumu grab or a tristana jump, and hecarim charges will be stopped.
A good thing to remember, Sona loves the mana i mean let's be honest she is a mana addict. So just spamming abilities is not the best idea. When trying to maximize her kit her heal does a bonus shield so having good timing is important but take note that her W is 2x as much as her Q for mana cost.
If there is a really tempting morsel of a kill that is hiding under a tower you can go in first, about 2 at most 3 tower shots is all you want to take, but dive for the kill and for the love of God make sure your adc is following you and you can heal right after the first tower shot. Weather the dive was successful or not use your speed burst to clear the tower range. It is a nifty little trick that helps make plays happen.
Though it is tempting to wait to use your ult on the whole team, make sure to use it when there is one player that is out of position, the stun is only 1 second but if you have your adc or your jungler you should be able to kill them quickly, even if they flash away the speed boost from Sona makes chases simple
