The old name for Iceborn Gauntlet. What many people still refer to Iceborn Gauntlet as.

Which is why we must ask if it's any good on her.

1. You already have a slow
2. You have the health of a caster minion
3. Good luck getting enough gold from babysitting Ez in bot lane

I make a good bit of money as a support. It's a heavy investment, true. That's why I'm asking.

As support Sona, you should be spending that gold on wards (via Sightstone or otherwise) and other items to buff up your team. Her AP ratios are low, the CDR's fine but there are cheaper options, the slow is unnecessary and the armor is too little for how much you're paying. She's offensive enough in lane and needs to have enough tankiness/support items late game to help out with her ulti and have real presence aside from some slight dmg and aoe slow

on paper,it seems pretty good:

- she spams a lot which makes proccing it easy.
- all the stats on frozen fist are great on sona
- can perma slow someone if you can juggle your skills well
- sheen complements her poke in lane and glacial shroud is helpful too

But getting 3400g to buy it is very harsh as a support and she will still be squishy as hell even with the armor

I know how to support, thanks.

I was thinking more along the lines of being able to lay down constant slow fields and also benefitting from the stats. The inefficiency of the AP is a good reason though.

Though I feel I must refer to my original question--has anyone actually TRIED this, Support or otherwise? Or should I be the first summoner to prove that it sucks terribly?
