Sona's ult needs to be looked at.

If you play as Sona, you know she's full of advantages with some considerable drawbacks. Everything about her Q, W, and E seem to be pretty fair for the role she plays, and not singularly overpowered.

However her ult confounds me. Okay, so it does very little damage at all 3 ranks, 150 at 1 350 at 3... By the time I'm 6 my Q is usually doing more than my ult without any AP... So, I think it's fair to say that sona's ult doesn't do very much damage.

It has a CC, those you hit dance in place for 1.5 seconds, really nifty, just about the only useful thing about this ability... But, it's really only useful for group ganks. Only in early game are you able to use this cc to survive. Late game, champions will be much faster than you, even if you have boots, and especially if they have any run speed buffs or flash. So the cc is nice, but it's also pretty short.

Now, we get to the cooldown. With the low damage and the short cc in mind, you'd THINK this ult would be usable quite frequently, right? Hell no. rank 1 - 160 second base cooldown, rank 3 - 120 second base cooldown. WHY? Sona's abilities as a whole, even though they all have a relatively short cd, are set back at a reasonable rate of setting off a 2 second global cd, but for some reason her ult has to be one of the higher end cd's in the game?

It's extremely frustrating to wait 3-6 encounters for my ult to come off cd, while many other characters can use theirs every encounter.


I really think Sona's ult needs to be looked at, and 2 of the components of her ult need to be changed. I think her ult needs a moderate cd reduction, and either the damage or the cc,(more likely the damage) need to be buffed a bit, or at least more scalable.

Sona is an OP champ, having an UP ult helps balance her out

Like, I don't even believe this. Sona's ult is probably the most powerful CC move in the game. It is Galio or Amumu's ult, only at zero risk to Sona. Its a freaking "Win Teamfight" button. It is THE reason she is OP. She does everything other support champions do, and then has Amumu level CC teamfighting ability.

Please tell me you are joking.

Are you kidding me? An AMAZING CC/INTERUPT that can hit the whole opposing team needs to be buffed? Do you think the damage on Amumu's ult needs to be buffed? This ult is AMAZING and game changing simply because it has the ability to CC an entire enemy team.

Please no.

Never.

Sona's is definitely above average in term of tier... Some of the older supports need a buff IMO.

I beat Kayla one on one as sona, she might hits harder, but I also heal faster and more. I had 1/3 hp left when I killed her from full hp.

Sona is amazing how she is. Buffing her would possibly be the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

Sona's ult is like a balanced version of Amumu's.
