Other than - as has been mentioned - her mana costs going through the roof (seriously, 3-4 button presses and she's nearly oom), they nerfed the absolute f*** out of the damage on her blue passive. Gone are the days where she could get a lichbane and legit chunk a squishy for 2/3rds of their hp.

Didn't they buff the ratio so that if you're playing full ap Sona the one shots are even stronger after ~300 ap? Yeah her mana costs feel awful though, especially since her heal costs 10000 mana and is completely negligible.. not to mention in mid lane you're cutting the heal/shield in half

No, they nerfed her blue passive. Going full AP with a Lichbane doesn't work anymore. Used to hit like a freight train, now it hits like a wet noodle...compared to what it used to do, at least. :^)

I remember I saved a gif of a game where I one shot the enemy support (did ~1100 dmg with q+auto powerchord to a level 9 support lux) and this was with only one dedicated dmg item (lich bane) and all the mana regen items stacked with Athene's. Was before all the nerfs though

Exactly. Before the nerfs she could absolutely vaporize squishies with her blue passive + Lichbane. If you were going full AP you could come close to one-shotting squishies.

But that was then, this is now. Now you use 3 spells and you're oom, and your blue passive + Lichbane does a fraction of what it used to.

They only nerfed the flat damage on her Q Aura's on-hit (from 20-60 down to 10-30) and buffed the AP scaling on it (from 0.2 to 0.3). So... she only need 300 AP to break even with her old damage :^)

Unless you mean her Q Power Chord going from 100% to 40%, yeah... that was pretty big drop.

That's what I was talking about when I said "blue passive". :^)

Should probably get more mana sustain somewhere, being oom 70% of the game...I don't know man.
