DJ Sona Review – The New Ultimate Skin
Since she was announced, there’s been a huge amount of hype in the League of Legends community around Sona and her DJ Sona ultimate skin – but does it live up to the hype? Let’s take a look at what 3250RP gets and ultimately find out if the DJ Sona skin is all it’s promised to be.
DJ Sona Overview
DJ Sona is a bit different to other League of Legends skins, in that you actually get 3 different skins in one, which vary depending on what style you choose. Styles can be changed at any time in game, with each style having unique visuals and their own soundtrack. Teammates can also listen to DJ Sona’s tunes at any time by activating the audio button next to her name on the scoreboard. DJ Sona’s varying styles are at the heart of this skin, so let’s look at them in greater detail.
DJ Sona’s styles
- Kinetic – A techno beat reminiscent of old-school Daft Punk songs. Ideal for quick skirmishes.
- Concussive – A heavier beat along the lines of dubstep. Great for late game team-fights.
- Ethereal – A cool, calming melody. Great for relaxing farming and the early game.
Each style begins with a base beat, which is built upon when DJ Sona first activates each of her four abilities. Therefore the “full” beat for each style is unlocked at level 6, after all 4 abilities have been used for the first time.
DJ Sona Music
Each style has a unique music track, which as mentioned previously builds throughout the game until all abilities have been activated at least once. Players can change style at any time by pressing “Crlt+5” – this will change both the visual and music style. It takes around two seconds for DJ Sona to change styles, so don’t do it in the middle of a team-fight! We’ve included examples of her music below:

Is it worth it?
There’s no way around it – DJ Sona is a very expensive skin (as are all ultimate skins). In fact, we could buy a full game for the price of just the skin. However, if you’re an avid League of Legends player like we are then you will find this skin absolutely awesome. It’s easily the best skin that Riot have ever produced and if you main support is a must buy. If you don’t play support then despite being an amazing skin, it’s a big investment to justify.
- Amazing visual artwork
- Top quality music
- Essentially 3 ultimate skins for the price of one
- Very expensive
- Difficult to justify if you don’t play support
Our Rating: 4.5/5 – it loses half a star for the price tag.
