Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png  - For Escapes only. do not use to engage!

3.png - When an attack damage based champion is diving for a kill, or to secure a kill with the slow. Don't bother use on AP as you can just silence him using infuse.png.

Masteries Back to Top

Cunning:

- Wanderer: Walk around and ward
- Secret Stash: Extra health and mana instantly is good
- Meditation: Will keep your mana up
- Bandit: Nice for some extra gold income
- Intelligence: Cooldown = More heals in less time.
- Windspeaker's Blessing: Obvious

Resolve:

- Recovery: Health regeneration is your core stat
- Explorer: Will keep you safe in sticky situation, also helps you roam to mid or drake to Ambulance.
- Runic Armor: Extra Health regeneration.
Perseverance: More health regeneration, especially on low health.

What we are trying to achieve here is maximum health regeneration. 

We're avoiding taking the health on the defensive tree to reduce the cost of your astralblessing.png while trying to minimize trade damage by reducing basic attacks and minion damage with as much armor possible. 

Perseverance help us get health back when low on hp, while standing behind, very quickly.
It might even save from 14.png when using a health postion.

What you're going to do most of the game is just stand behind your ADC and spam astralblessing.png as he is fighting 1 vs 2.


Keep your infuse.png for when the support is trying to dive him (89.png412.png) and use it right under your ADC feet when that happens.

Since 6.5 starcall.png made Soraka even stronger, granting slow on anywhere it hits. Is nice to regen back up when you run out of health potions and has some spare mana, but don't bother spamming it, it's low level and does no damage.
The extra health regen can be passed on to your ADC which is nice, but try not to risk your own life for it, better heal twice at the back carefully than dying for that extra health regen.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Use this build if you're going for the sustain lane who farm a lot, and patiently winning trades. This build will also get your to Nomad's faster.
    Use this if you wanna try harass your enemies very early to port back to their base and lose farm.
    This build is for bullying your enemy. You will need your vision to get early vision and keep safe.

Core Items

    Get Nomad first for passive income, greater health source. Once you have Sightstone you can change trinket to sweeper. Boots for extra speed, vision ward for obvious reasons.
    Talisman for engage / disengage. Censer and Zeke if you're successful and your ADC is winning. The swiftness is because Soraka has no escape, so we need movement speed to be able to move around fast. Corrupting potion is good for heal and mana, and it refills, so use it as soon as you heal twice or more, and keep yourself with full hp at all time.
    With the recent changes to chalice and the mana cost changes, chalice is now one of the core items on Soraka and should be bought fast.

Situational Items

    Banner of Command is a very nice way to build up a lane. Use it on the last mage minion, not on the cannon as he will eventually tank and die. Mikael's is for when the enemy has too much CC and you know you depend on it to save you ADC from getting wracked.
    I honestly think 5 biscuits is best approach, but it costs. So consider alternatives if you want to rush a specific item and not waste too much money on pots throughout the game.

Early game, just stand behind your ADC, make him trade a lot and keep his HP up at all time.

At around level 5 your astralblessing.png cooldown is low enough for an all in situation.

Get 3096.png before 2049.png because it will win you the lane, while 3340.png does the job just fine at this stage.

Do use map awareness.


With the path 5.24 the mana cost on Soraka's astralblessing.png went up, so make sure to buy at least one 3114.png as soon as you can.

VS

Annie

Hard

You are not doing very well against burst, especially when 1.png picks 14.png.

Force her to waste her passive before trading.

Better not fight before wish.png is up, because it removes grievous wounds.

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium

Don't get caught by his rocketgrab.png you're done for it!

Ward the brush often. 

If he catches your ADC infuse.png under his feet and heal him.

Use 3.png on their ADC if it's critical.

Punish when possible.

VS

Leona

Medium

If you get caught you will most likely die, especially if she has 14.png.

If your ADC is getting caught by leonazenithblade.png just use infuse.png under his feet and astralblessing.png him to safety.

VS

Miss Fortune

Easy

Low mobility, easy to trade.

VS

Rengar

Medium

Once in his rengarR.png, you need to get near your ADC and just infuse.png under your feet.
If he does jump on you, he won't be able to use the rest of his skills and probably get snared for you both to run to safety or burst him down.

Don't forget to get a 3364.png and 2043.png.

VS

Tahm Kench

Medium

Be very careful not to get caught.

If he manages to put a stack or two on you use infuse.png at the edge of your feet towards your escape so he must either walk around it or in it and get snared while you run.

Same goes for your ADC.

VS

Thresh

Medium

If he catches you, you are probably going to die if he has 14.png.

If your ADC is getting caught by threshQ.png, use your infuse.png under his feet before Thresh can threshE.png.

How To Play Back to Top

Just stand behind your ADC, don't include yourself in the trades.

astralblessing.png often, when you are below 50% hp stop trading and wait for your regeneration to kick in.

If you are below 25% use 2031.png.


Get your 3096.png first, if u need the vision in the laning phase get 2043.png. After that go for 2049.png.


Ward carefully, use starcall.png to reveal brushes before going near to ward. The range is good and will keep you safe.

Idle ADCs Back to Top

67.png
Probably the best ADC you can have.  rush 3504.png for her! She can poke very often with vaynetumble.png. Can disengage with her vaynecondemn.png.

236.png
Very good at trading with lucianE.png AA + lucianQ.png AA. If you can survive this trade, heal back up, rinse, repeat, win.

133.png
Quinn's trades are awesome! He can pill people off himself using quinnE.png. Also if he buys 1304.png, he can get back in lane very quickly, making bottom lane a non stop pushing lane and easy to snowball if done right.

104.png
Tanky with his active has escape using  gravesmove.png. Has a nice trade capability, especially near walls, so can easily win trades. 


ASK YOUR ADC TO TAKE RUNIC ARMOR MASTERY!!!

This will increase the heals on him dramatically, allowing you to win trades and save his life even more often.

Soraka early, mid and late game. Back to Top

Early game - Strong

This is the phase Soraka is meant for. This is the time to shine, it's called Super Passive because you are standing behind. however your ADC must be super aggressive to compensate. 
At level 1-3 all you do is allow your ADC to TRADE an auto attack or two and a skill and go back. Heal back to full and then do that again.
Only at level 5 when your heal is at a low enough cooldown, and hopefully the enemy is already at 50% hp and wasted their potions, is when you can go all in.

Usually I prefer taking fight before level 6, because Soraka ain't good vs bursts.


Mid Game - Below Average

At this point you're going to have to ward around objectives, so use your starcall.png on brushes before warding them.
Getting caught is very bad because you have no escape so if you don't have team mates around you, at least do it when you already bought 3009.png and your 4.png is up.
Help people take towers down, ward around lanes you're going for.

Late Game - Weak

At around late game people are usually being taken down by bursts, so healing is not going to do much, but still it helps up to a certain point.
So what can you do?
3364.png often, starcall.png brushes, and vision vision vision! This is the best thing you can do for your team at this point.
Try and save your wish.png to when most of your team is hurt and not on the first one to get low.
