Sona Matchups Overview

Sona General information

Sona tips and tricks

Use your Passive to the fullest by always auto-attacking after a trade.

Set up picks with your CrescendoR around objectives like the Baron or Dragon. Hiding in an unwarded bush and ambushing the enemy is a great tactic for Sona.

Watch your positioning at all times. Stand next to your ADC at all times so you do not get picked off before or at the start of a team fight.
