: Okay this is just bollocks. Sona, POWER CHORD: basic attack deals DAMAGE: 15 - 235 (based on level) (+ 20% AP) bonus magic damage Hymn of Valor: MAGIC DAMAGE: 40 / 70 / 100 / 130 / 160 (+ 50% AP) Hymn of Valor AA bonus: BONUS MAGIC DAMAGE: 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 (+ 20% AP) STACCATO: Power Chord: 「 40% bonus 」 damage. Crescendo: MAGIC DAMAGE: 150 / 250 / 350 (+ 50% AP) Lich Bane: 75% base AD (+ 50% AP) bonus magic damage So at lvl 7/12/18 (lvl 7 To make this easier will assume Q is maxed at lvl 7 I know it can't but w/e) Power chord + Hymn +Hymn AA+ Staccato+ Crescendo + Lich Bane + AD Lvl 7 65+160+60+26+150+65 with 190% ap scaling. = 526 +(190% ap scaling) + (75% base AD) Lvl 12 145+160+60+58+250+80 with 190% ap scaling. = 753 +(190% ap scaling) + (75% base AD) Lvl 18 235+160+60+94+350+101 with 190% ap scaling = 1000 +(190% ap scaling) + (75% base AD) Syndra: Assume we Max in priority R>Q>W>E Dark Sphere MAGIC DAMAGE: 50 / 95 / 140 / 185 / 230 (+ 65% AP) Force of Will MAGIC DAMAGE: 70 / 110 / 150 / 190 / 230 (+ 70% AP) Transcendence Force of will DAMAGE: Bonus True Damage 20% Scatter the Weak MAGIC DAMAGE: 70 / 115 / 160 / 205 / 250 (+ 60% AP) Unleashed Power MAGIC DAMAGE PER SPHERE: 90 / 135 / 180 (+ 20% AP) (Min damage multiply by 3 Max damage by 7) So at lvl 7/12/18 Lvl 7 185+70+70+ 270 up to 630 with 215% AP scaling = 595-955 with 215% ap scaling Lvl 12 230+190+70+405 up to 945 with 215% AP scaling =895-1435 with 215% ap scaling Lvl 18 230+230+ 46 True Damage+ 250 + 540 up to 1260 with 215% ap scaling and a 14% True Damage scaling off of ap = 1296- 2016 with 215% ap scaling, and 14% true damage based off of ap. At all three levels, Syndra has higher base damage and higher scalings without having to AA or be in AA Range, and that's assuming she uses her ult in the worst possible way, even assuming that Sona has acquired a Lich bane at lvl 7. At Syndra's max, she more than doubles the damage of Sona and has higher scalings. Don't talk shit about Sona having more burst than Syndra please.
Dude im a Syndra main, I know that she is a one shot burst but c'mon take my point at least. Sona is a support that could use less dmg on the Q and maybe focus more on the heals and the MS they can get as a group, then I at least woulnt say that Sona is "broken" but more of an stronger healing support rather than a insane dmg dealer in the bottom lane, I mean dealing more dmg than her ADC before the core items is ridiculous as I said there is no hate towards the champion I do like Sona as a support, I like the strong heals and the good MS engage with a nice (5man) stun with her ulti. it's just the overall dmg she have that I find annoying other than that I like her alot and I like the fact that she is a strong support if u ignore the dmg part, I mean I have no trouble killing Sona with Syndra, Orianna and so on. But I mean that when I play as an support or an ADC and match up with a Sona she deals over double the dmg than her ADC would do with IE (eks. dont worry im not here to exaggerate).
: Yes, but all kata has to do is dagger shunpo ult and sona is dead. If you build full damage, you do damage, however you no longer have a support build. If kata, who won't be obligated to buy a sightstone, buys a banshee. Sona will be rendered unable to deal with her, and she will os her all day long. Sona isn't particularly op. The build that is seeing success is the one with ardent censer, because she can proc it on her whole team quite easily. Damage Sona is high risk high reward, but completely non-viable vs tanks and bruisers. If the enemy team is made entirely of damage dealers without a single banshees, she can do extremely well. Otherwise she's a very standard burst damage dealer, but there other champions out there that outscale her at doing crazy burst, e.g. annie fizz and katarina off the top of my head.
Fizz and Annie is 2 champs I can agree on a 100% but they are 0 fcks given champs who can outrade u without consequences... Those are also a problem for many (me also ofc.) and I dont like that they can go in unpunished, ofc. it's counterplay against them but there is some split seconds only and that annoys me af :/
: So lemme get this straight, when a support takes all damage items, they do damage. STOP THE PRESSES RITO MUST KNOW ABOUT THIS!!!!!!!!! Literally the only reason for sonas win rate atm is the shield build works ridiculously well with ardent mikaels etc etc. Once they pull some of the stats out of ardent she will go back to her mediocre win rate and we can all complain about, I dunno, katarina?
Dude the only thing Sona needs to do against Katarina is just R Q And AA and shes dead no question she burst Katarina down faster than the other way in early-mid game
: I completely agree with you, but that's not the only problem with Sona. Support items are too strong in general right now. That aside, she can still do 30 ish% of an ADC's health at lvl 6 with one Q AA while building support. Her ult is too fast to properly dodge for champions without mobility such as Ashe, Varus, Kog'maw, Lulu, Soraka and the list continues. Besides it moving way too fast, it's also kind of wide, easily stunning multiple people in the fraction of a second. Her cooldowns are too low for the way she works. She ends up being an AoE spam-bot that is way too effective for how easy it is to play her. You can hardly make any mechanical errors with this champion so punishing is very hard. If you make a mistake she is gonna press Q without aiming, aa you and whoops, you got punished really hard. Hey, you still have CDs, go after her and tr-- Nope she pressed W and E, soak up your damage and disengage. Also, she is very squishy but her W both HEALS her AND SHIELDS her. (And everyone around her xd)
Nerf te ap scaling so ppl stop buying full ap items such as lich, deathcap And so on. Just support items, i mean I like sona as a champion but I dont like that insane ap scaling as a support she deals more dmg than Syndra And the other burst champions out there
