Playing against Sona

Key Insights
Based on her last basic ability used,
P
has a different effect.
Q
increases its damage,
W
lowers her target's damage output, and
E
slows her target's movespeed.
Any basic ability Sona casts also empowers nearby allies when they walk into her aura.
Anytime a teammate walks into her auras, she refunds 30 mana from the ability's cost (up to once per cast).
E
's duration increases to 7 seconds (from 3) if she doesn't take damage.
Every time Sona ranks up
R
, her basic abilities have their cooldowns reduced.
Power Spike
Spikes incredibly hard at levels 6, 11, and 16 due to
R
's innate cooldown reduction.
Excels at keeping her allies topped off and safe while also regularly boosting their damage output in fights.
Spikes well on
Athene's Unholy Grail
since she can constantly stack it, and
Ardent Censer
since she can apply it to everyone consistently.
Vulnerable
Extremely squishy, leaving a lot of room to punish her.
Very high mana costs when her auras don't affect allies.
Takes a very long time to scale and will usually fall behind more often than get ahead.
