I tested in a normal game. Yeah, I did that and it doesn't work as intended. To tank as Sona, people need to focus on you and you have to build enough items to migrate the amount of focus fire damage. Trust me when I say this... the chances is, after the initial focus fire, you should be dead or near dead and if your team didn't take the opportunity to kill their squishes, you're in a world of hurt. Whether you used your ult or not.

I don't think he meant as your team's sole tank. Building Sona tanky (opposed to AP) is definitely the way to go. Her ratios are 100% trash and her base heal is decent. I usually go Chalice -> Mercs -> Aegis (or Shroud if my tank wants to get Aegis) -> Banshee's -> Omen/Frozen Heart -> Trinity Force (it actually works pretty well with her) or Rylai's/Mallet.

Most good supports should be built tanky... your job is to keep you and your teammates alive, not to pewpew.

If he meant that, then you should be building some survival items. I don't see why you shouldn't.
