Guide to Countering Sona

  • Try to catch Sona alone before initiating a team fight; having her in teamfights makes your chances of winning much lower. Sona's huge AoE stun counters just about anything in a teamfight. The only real defense is spreading out or killing her.
  • Don't group up when engaging with Sona, because she can get multiple champions in her Crescendo leaving an opening for a counterattack.
  • Sona is very effective at poking in the early game. Her individual damage will fall off as the game progresses and she is forced to build more support items.
