League of Legends S12: Sona Support Build Guide

From runes to items, gameplay tips amd more, we've put together a guide to help you master playing Sona as a support in League of Legends.

Be mindful that there are several ways to build and play a champion, and you'll need to be adaptable as the game and the enemy team progress.

That said, this guide is a good starting point to helping you get to grips with the champion and making an impact in your games.

R > W > Q > E

Summoner Spells

These are the summoner spells most typically taken by Sona in this role. Naturally, this may change depending on match-ups.

Ignite - League of Legends


Sona has two jobs - keep her ADC healed and protected, and harass the enemy ADC through her Q poke. She's also a great roamer, who can move quickly with her E.

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Hymn of Valor, for the poke. Make sure enemy champions are within range.
  • Level 2 - Take W - Aria of Perseverance, to begin healing and shielding her ADC. 
  • First Back - Ionian Boots of Lucidity will reduce cooldowns, but perhaps a Bandleglass Mirror is better for the mana regen. 

Tips & Tricks

  • When returning to lane, use your Song of Celerity twice - this will mean your Power Chord is online, meaning you can immediately poke with an empowered Hymn of Valor for extra damage. 
  • If you don't need it for anything else in that moment, feel free to use Power Chord with an auto-attack for damage. It could be the difference between an enemy ADC choosing to trade or back.
  • Use an empowered Aria of Perseverance on an enemy champion, such as an assassin, who is attempting to dive your ADC. It will reduce the damage they deal.
  • An empowered Song of Celerity will slow an opponent. Use this to chase down fleeing targets.
  • Remember, your spells have an area of effect. Make sure your ADC is close to take advantage.
