Sona's basic abilities each generate a unique aura for 3 seconds that empowers her and all targetable allied champions who enter its radius, and they place her other basic abilities that are not on cooldown on a 0.5-second cooldown.

POWER CHORD: After casting 3 basic abilities, Sona's next basic attack has an uncancelable windup, deals 20−240 (+20% of ability power) bonus magic damage and applies an additional effect depending on the last basic ability cast (depending on level).

Power Chord resets Sona's basic attack timer.

Sona gains a stack of Accelerando each time she hits an enemy with Hymn of Valor or supports an ally with Aria of Perseverance. Each stack grants her 0.5 basic ability haste, up to 60 basic ability haste at 120 stacks, and each one gained thereafter instead reduces Crescendo's current cooldown by 1.5 seconds.
