Guide LoL Sona, Support, S10


League of Legends

Sona is a versatile champion able to poke and control as well as healing her allies.


  • Boots of Mobility are very useful to provide vision or to accompany your teammates' roams.
  • You can opt for Ionian Boots of Lucidity if you know that you'll need 10% less cooldown for your spells to reach maximum cooldown.

Core items

  • Spellthief's Edge will be upgraded and give wards to get vision on the map.
  • Ardent Censer and Athene's Unholy Grail are two support items. Ardent Censer is a more offensive item while Athene's Unholy Grail is focused on healing allies.
  • Redemption allows you to heal your allies in battle, even if you are far away (or dead).

Situational items

  • Rabadon's Deathcap is a really good choice when in need of more power to decimate the enemy team. Lich Bane is also to be considered since it works very well with Sona's Kit.
  • Twin Shadows is very useful to catch enemies in the jungle and can create a panic state

Playing Sona

Sona needs to keep her allies healthy while poking the enemy as much as possible.

  • Level 1: Play with your Passive - Power Chord giving additional damage after three uses of Q - Hymn of Valor to poke the enemy.
  • Level 2: Use W - Aria of perseverance to heal your ally and keep him longer on the lane.

E - Song of Celerity gives a speed bonus, very useful to follow or flee a gank.

In teamfight:

Poke enemies with your Q - Hymn of Valor and your Passive - Power Chord.

Use E - Song of Celerity on you and your ADC to ease your movement and boost your damage thanks to Ardent Censer.

If the enemies are packed in a small group don't hesitate to use your R - Crescendo to stun them all.



Tips & Tricks

  • You can charge your passive even before going back on the lane.
  • If an enemy assassin dive on your carry you can use W - Aria of perseverance + auto-attack.
  • If you want to catch an enemy use E - Song of Celerity + auto-attack.
  • Your spells have an AOE secondary effect, get close to your allies to buff them.
