Hey guys it's ShreddedSky, it's been a WHILE since I've done anything on this wiki, but I've come today to show you this Sona build I came up with. If you want to see this in video form instead of reading it, feel free to watch the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFDaJRZe4Gc&list=UUfuxXF3TSMDa63_I35Q_SVAg
We'll be taking a look at the factors of this item interaction: Ardent Censer and Sona's W: Aria of Perseverance
Ardent Senser Stats: 40 AP, +10 Mana Regen (per 5 secs), 10% CDR. Unique Passive: Your heals and shields on another unit grant then 25% attack speed for 6 seconds.
Sona's W provides a long range heal and a shield once the ally(s) come close enough to the aura.
These two items can create a continuous chain of Attack Speed. Notice how Sona's W has a 10 sec. cooldown across all levels and Ardent Censer's Passive lasts for 6 seconds if not refreshed. If we apply 40% CDR (the max), Sona's W will go down to a 6 sec. cooldown, allowing a continuous Attack Speed Buff!
Looking at Sona's base level 18 stats, she has a 1030 mana pool, and a maxed out W costs 90 mana per cast. So, at level 18, Sona can consistently play approximately 11.5 Ws (1030/90) given that mana regeneration does NOT exist. Being able to press W 11.5 times whenever its up keeps a consistent 66 second 25% attack speed bonus! And this is not applying Mana Regeneration!
Pre-Rank 5 W Tactic
While you haven't achieved 40% CDR, you can simply step away from your allies, and give them the aura shield to refresh the attack speed buff when neccessary (Ardent Censer also applies to shields)
Using this tactic, you are effectively carrying 1 2/3 daggers for your potentially your WHOLE team which translates into a free 1200 gold!
This item interaction is only useful to auto-attack reliant champions, and I only recommend you pull this off when there are at least 2 or 3 champions who can effectively utilize this.
Some Item suggestions to top off your build are: Zeke's Herald, Athene's Unholy Grail, Talisman of Acension, and Ionian Boots of Lucidity. (You need a sightstone of course).
Thanks! If you liked this build please consider subbing to my channel (I make league videos about once a week).
