After months of waiting, players can finally test the Sona remake.
In the latest patch on the Public Test Environment (PBE), Riot has finally added changes to Sona that have been revealed for a long time. These changes will help one of the oldest utility supports return to the meta and update the gameplay.
For a long time, Sona has been pretty one-sided compared to other supports but that could change now. Riot keeps Sona’s core but adds some new powers that could make her return to the meta soon.
This is Sona remake in League of Legends
Although Riot considers this a big update, Sona still has to keep to herself the short cooldown spells and auras she’s always been known for. Sona will also keep her Super Ascension (R), which has always been her most powerful tool and the spell that can decide a team match.
As a new addition, Riot has added another piece to Sona’s Power Chord passive, which will help her a lot in scaling. The extra is called Accelerando, which includes stacks that Sona can collect by successfully hitting her other base skills. For each Accelerando stack, Sona gains 0.5 quick up to a maximum of 60. Once that limit is reached, Accelerando stacks will instead reduce Crescendo’s cooldown.
The sudden addition of Accelerando stacks will give Sona much better scaling and ultimately a champ to spam our endless abilities at the end of the game. This could make Sona one of the best scaling extensions support and could eventually compete with the likes of Seraphine and Lulu.
With these additions, Sona still looks the same as before. Sona will still be a weak champion without much mobility, forcing players to use her wisely. It’s not yet known how strong Sona will be with these changes, but players will likely find out soon as PBE testing progresses.
The Sona remake is set to hit live servers with patch 11.16 on Aug.
