Overview

As an ultimate tier skin, DJ Sona includes new everything; she has three unique forms with new models, animations, spell effects, sound effects, and in-game music tracks, as well as a set of summoner icons and profile banners!

3250 RP (on sale for 2450 RP through March 1st)


As mentioned on the promo page, DJ Sona includes dynamic music that evolves as you play - with a unique track in each form -  and can share that music with her team mates:
"Dynamic musical styles 
Throughout the game, DJ Sona can spin one of three evolving songs – Kinetic, Concussive and Ethereal. Each one has its own distinct style and transforms Sona entirely, from her outfit and turntable to the look and feel of her abilities. She kicks off every gig in Kinetic but typing /toggle in the in-game chat cues up the next tune. The tracks will always go in order of Kinetic → Concussive → Ethereal → Kinetic, no remixes allowed. 
Warning: Switching tracks mid-teamfight threatens to ruin your team’s rhythm."

"Music sharing 
Music’s also made to be shared. If you’re on a team with DJ Sona, you can tune in to her beats by bringing up the in-game scoreboard. On the left side of the screen, next to her portrait, you’ll see a button. Click it and Sona takes over your in-game music, pumping her own songs through your speakers. Though you can’t pick what piece she performs, you can pull the plug on her show at any time by clicking the button again."

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT DJ SONA?

DJ Sona will have three forms that you can toggle through by typing “/toggle” or pressing ctrl + 5. Each form creates a unique musical experience that only she and her teammates can hear. This experience evolves dynamically as the game progresses.

WHAT ARE THE THREE DIFFERENT FORMS?

KINETIC
high-energy beats  
CONCUSSIVE
hard-hitting rhythms  
ETHEREAL
atmospheric vibes
Each form has a unique set of visual and sound effects.

HOW CAN HER TEAMMATES HEAR THE SKIN?

Her teammates (not enemies) can opt in to hearing by pressing a button located next to Sona’s champion portrait on the left side of the screen when you pull up the tab menu.

HOW DO I TURN OFF THE ELECTRONIC MUSIC WHEN PLAYING WITH THE SKIN?

You can opt out by pressing a button located next to Sona’s champion portrait in the tab menu. If you’d like to reenable the music later on, simply click on the button again.

WHERE CAN I GET DJ SONA’S MUSIC?

There are 3 radio edit versions of DJ Sona’s music that are designed to be representations of the three forms. They can be downloaded for free here. Her music will also be released on select other platforms after she goes live. Keep your ear to the ground!
