Early Lane Phase Explained
-Side note: Sona's Ultimate and sustain Syncs up REALLY well with vayne's Condemn. Most cases where Vayne is countered It wouldn't really matter if you land the condemn and Ult them after. 9/10 times guarantees you at least 1 kill if not both!
- Starting items: 2 vision wards, Vision trinket and Frost dagger, why? Gold per second keeps you helpful and the warding is still your job every time you B you should be able to afford and keep at least 1 or 2 wards while continually getting the items for your build. Neat Right?
- where should i always keep warded?: I tend to ward Right in front of dragon and their bush or ours, Depending on who is pushed back them or us? If you get extra money for an extra ward i recommend warding their blue buff for that extra heads up.
- Why No boots you noob?: Sona REALLY does not need boots to escape honestly, late game especially. Sure you could get cooldown but its really not needed totally. ( you could just change ap runes to cooldown reduction) plus i don't know if its just me, but i find boots to be a double edged sword.
Why? Because sometimes the ability to get greedy and chase someone isn't the best idea, and two, because i feel it takes away from your true potential to learn how to escape from a bad situation, If you can escape with no boots from 2-5 people whamming on you, you can DEFINATELY do it with them. *Plus later on the rylai's is there to slow pursuers ;)*
Why not magic pene?: Thats really only valuable early game from my understanding when no one has MR. Besides all you want to do is maximize your heal, and your movement speed buff. those are far more important tools as support.
What is your prefered build order?: I can't tell you honestly, my play style is for me find what works for you. i recommend lich bane or rabadons.
Your movement speed boost can help push lanes fast, chase down low hp enemies OR disengage a enemy chasing your teammates. Sweet right? After u hit all 6 items and are wonder what can i do to break 900+ ap, if the game gets that far, you can sell your Frost Dagger for another Death fire for Cooldown or another Zhonia hourglass for the bonus armor. *either way you get 120 AP* :D
Well Good luck guys this is all i can think about to touch bases on.
