[Sona] Aura Rings Persist, Cause FPS Issues

**Date:** 17 Sept. 2014 **Summary: ** After seeing multiple reports of Sona causing FPS issues, I began looking into the problem. It seems that, after using an ability, the visual of Sona's aura does not fade away. As these visuals begin stacking over the course of a game, they begin to cause FPS issues for anyone unfortunate enough to view Sona. **Repro Steps:** 1. Start an ARAM or Dominion custom game*. 2. Level each ability. 3. Begin using each ability as able. 4. Previous Auras will persist, stacking to cause significant FPS issues over time. *These steps will work in every game mode, but are easiest to reproduce in Dominion or ARAM due to the initial starting level. **Additional Notes:** After testing multiple skins, there does not appear to be any correlation between the skin Sona is using and the existence of persistent auras. --- **Similar Reports:** *Sona and FPS Drops - * [1](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/YdL8XEEd-sona-causes-extreme-fps-drop-when-looked-at) [2](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/nN4VuYrP-bug-major-sona-lag) [3](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/FXYVErdL-sona-causing-massive-fps-drops) [4](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/QOEo1huR-sona-blue-ring-bug) [5](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/nN4VuYrP-bug-major-sona-lag) [6](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/xEJf2BTx-soda-drops-fps-from-60-to-2-in-seconds) [7](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/ilHx4K63-sona-huge-fps-drop) [8](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/xEJf2BTx-sona-drops-fps-from-60-to-2-in-seconds) *Sona and Persistent Auras -* [1](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/TNYs8YgJ-916-sona-aura-bug) [2](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/QOEo1huR-sona-blue-ring-bug) [3](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/iwEog1GE-sona-keeps-building-up-aura-causeing-lag-spikes) [4](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/Zf6Y3WB8-sona-aura-animations-indefinitely-stacking) [5](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/champions-gameplay-feedback/fEIEjbmG-sona-vfx-bug) --- *Latest Edit* 17 Sept. 2014 @ 5:50pm PDT: Added additional report links.
