Guide to Countering Sona as Lissandra

Tips for Playing as Lissandra against Sona

Casting Glacial Path and then running in the opposite direction will leave your enemies uncertain which way you will actually go.

Lissandra's abilities are shorter range than those of many mages. As a result, buying items that offer both ability power and defense, like Zhonya's Hourglass and Banshee's Veil, can be a great choice to help her both survive and deal damage.

You can instantly use your ultimate on yourself by pressing the self cast key and the ultimate key at once (alt+R by default).

Advice to Win Against Sona

Spread out when you see Sona so she can't make your entire team dance.

Kill Sona first, as she will heal up her team if left alone for too long.
