Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Must be taken in every game for obvious reasons

3.pngIs what i recomand  because it works great withstarcall.png,making it easy to chase or to peel for your ADC so he can escape

14.png Makes the 2v2 potential on lane in the favor of you and the ADC,however it can be not as  useful    as 3.png,it all depends on how agressive your playstyle is

Now, for 7.png and 21.png , i can only recomand  them against long range ADC (51.png,  236.png119.png) , Ap supports with 

huge burst if fed ( 43.png,  143.png,  37.png,  63.png,  25.png,  161.png), but still , 3.png 4.png is the best combination.




New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

On CUNNING  you need to go for Wanderer(free movement-speed), Secret Stash(more heal from potions),Meditation( even if 16.png dont  have mana problems), Bandit ( for free gold,working great with 3301.png) , Inteligence ( for having a 5 % cooldown to begin with and to reach the maximum 45 %), and finally , the keystone you must always go is 


 Windspeaker's Blessing  ( for stronger heals) 




On RESOLVE,  start with Recovery (for better regeneration early), Explorer ( for moving faster outside the lane) ,

Runic Armor ( for better healing and regenaration)  and Insight (for having the summoner spells cooldown reduced so 

 you can use them more often)

At level 1,go with astralblessing.png for helping the jungler and prevent the early damage your ADC might take from poke

A lot of people prefer to max starcall.png first, then astralblessing.png and the last infuse.png,but i prefer the stronger heal rather then dealing more damage with the maxed starcall.png.Depending on your playstyle , choose yourself what might be better to max,but i highly recomand maxing astralblessing.png.If you get a lead,i suppose maxing Q would also be a good idea.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Basic starting items
    Buy a lot of pink wards early and upgrade the trinket after u get Sightstone
    Also a good starting,if you want to go for Frost Quenn or Eye of the Watchers

Core Items

    Normal Soraka Build
    Good against heavy CC team and AP burst
    U can also go Eye of the Watchers

Situational Items

Start with Ancient Coin and 2 potions.You wanna go back when you have like 800-1200 gold,and buy Sightstone,boots,a pink and a potion or 2.Don't forget to upgrade to red trinket right after you buy Sightstone.After that,try to rush the CDR boots and get Talisman of Ascension completed.Next items you want are Iron Solari and Ardent Censer,which will give you the 45 % cooldown,and for the last item choose depending on what you need ,items like Guardian Angel,Banshee's Veil,Thornmail.And between every back,always buy a pink ward,5-6 pink wards should be bought per game at least.

VS

Alistar

Hard

Tank supports are well known counters to Soraka
Alistar's combopulverize.png+  headbutt.png is a nightmare for squishy supports,even if you use infuse.png to silence the combo,it's a hard matchup

VS

Annie

Easy

Don't let 1.png get an early lead and she won't have any effect on you,anyway ,you will not see her a lot in bottom lane.

VS

Ashe

Hard

22.png is so strong in this meta,she puts a lot of AP supports in a hard position because of her asheW.png

VS

Bard

Medium

If you get Bard an early lead,he will definetly destroy you,but overall ,the matchup is normal,try to avoid bardQ.png as much as possible

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium

Normal matchup, can't say it's easy but it's not hard either.In this kind of matchups you kinda depend on the ADC to be decent

VS

Brand

Hard

Desgusting OP 

He will literally get half of your Hp with a brandblaze.png and a brandfissure.png.If you know 100 % that he will go on bottom instead of mid,just don't pick Soraka

VS

Braum

Hard

If he gets the stun from passive on you,there's not much you can do.I suggest you guys to play super passive and wait for help from the jungler.

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

She is just OP ,so of course it will be hard, but not an impossible lane.Play safe and pay attention to her.

VS

Corki

Easy

He has mobility ,but he is not a problem.

VS

Draven

Hard

Imposible to deal with if he is fed. I would rather pick a tank against Draven.

VS

Ezreal

Medium

About this matchup, it only depends on how good the enemy is with Ezreal ,and trust me, a good Ezreal player is a rare thing.Stay behind minions and avoid ezrealmysticshot.png

VS

Janna

Easy

Picking Soraka against Janna is a very good idea
40.png has almost no effect against a good  Soraka player

VS

Jhin

Hard

Going agresive is not a good idea,since Jhin crits a lot and his kit makes you an easy enemy.jhinW.png can stun you,jhinE.png will slow you and jhinR.png will snipe you,so just don't make risky plays.

VS

Jinx

Easy

Easy to counter,easy to avoid,overall Jinx is good in combination with Soraka but weak against her

VS

Kalista

Hard

It is so hard to hit the starcall.png on Kalista, she also will be invincible with a tank like 12.png,so just don't pick Soraka

VS

Karma

Easy

Karma also got some nerfs , even if her empowered karmaheavenlywave.png hurts a lot,it's an easy matchup,unless your ADC is an idiot.

VS

Kog'Maw

Hard

What can a Soraka do against 5,00 attack speed...almost nothing to be honest,but you might win with a good ADC

VS

Leona

Hard

The all-in combos of Leona are pure cancer against Soraka
Try to avoid picking 16.png when you see 89.png

VS

Lucian

Medium

He is kinda hard to deal with,if Lucian gets a tank support,dont pick Soraka, but if he has an Ap support,it is easily to beat him

VS

Lulu

Medium

Lulu is strong in my opinion.Don't go to agressive , try to poke her a lot and wait for an oportunity, but if she is full Hp and mana , do not be impatient cauze you might do stupid mistakes.One mistake can make Lulu invincible

VS

Miss Fortune

Easy

Keep your infuse.png for when she usesmissfortunebullettime.png,overall is an easy matchup

VS

Morgana

Medium

Somewhere between Medium and Hard to be honest, a good Morgana player will make it really hard.Her kit is just broken with all the stuns and her shield,but once you have experience on Soraka, you can beat Morgana easily

VS

Nami

Easy

Just avoid her namiQ.png and you won't have problems.

VS

Nautilus

Hard

He deals so much damage and CC on you,even if he is behind.Avoid this matchup as much as possible.

VS

Quinn

Easy

Even if she is fast ,Quinn is not hard to beat ,however she might roam a lot,so make sure you have wards everywhere in the river to know her position

VS

Shen

Hard

Shen support is not played a lot,even if he is broken in bottom lane. Do not waste your time picking Soraka when you see Shen

VS

Sivir

Medium

An utility ADC ,who can be hard or easy ,depending on how you pressure her

VS

Sona

Easy

sonahymnofvalor.png  will hurt a lot ,and her sonaariaofperseverance.png is also a problem,but it's not hard to play against her,even if Sona is one of the best supports in this meta.You can anticipate her moves easily.

VS

Tahm Kench

Medium

If he swallows you with tahmkenchW.png, you're in a very bad position,it's a medium to hard matchup

VS

Taric

Easy

Even if he is tanky as fuck,he is not hard to deal with.Only be careful with his dazzle.png

VS

Thresh

Hard

If he catch you, there is nothing you can do

VS

Tristana

Medium

On lane is going to be easy, but in late game she is a monster.

VS

Twitch

Hard

He is just OP and he hurts a lot

VS

Varus

Hard

His harrasment with the varusq.png,combined with slows and stuns(varuse.png varusr.png), makes him a strong opponent .

VS

Vayne

Easy

Vayne is literally garbage,so yup.

VS

Zilean

Medium

Not a popular support,so you will not see him a lot. He can be hard to deal with,but overall i never had problems with him.

VS

Zyra

Hard

Absolutely terrible to play against. You will always be low Hp against Zyra, try to avoid her

Synergy Back to Top

Good with :

236.png202.png119.png22.png51.png429.png96.png





Bad with:

18.png104.png42.png15.png67.png133.png




How OP is Soraka? Back to Top

Overall,i have to say Soraka deserves a 8,5 out of 10.

She is way to overpowered,but in this patch,3504.png makes 40.png and 37.png even better.Now don't understand me wrong,the Soraka power is still the best,but we can't say that she is the best support unfortunetly.

Early game Back to Top

In early game,you wanna play passive and wait for opportunities. Remember one thing : IF YOU DIE A LOT EARLY,THE GAME IS LOST 90 %. And yes,i'm not kidding,Soraka is well known to be paper,if u get behind , you will just die over and over again. This is the risk of playing Soraka , you destroy everyone, or you go 0/10 .

Learn when to play safe and when to play agressive :)

Mid game Back to Top

On mid game, you need to have at least 35% CDR already. Items like3069.png3190.png3158.png must be there to bring the utility for your team.You have a decent mid game,but is also risky since you need to roam a lot and ward all the map ,not just bottom and river.

Late game Back to Top

On late game, i always go for 3026.png and 3504.png. This 2 items puts the enemy team in a very bad position. In my  opinion ,Soraka has a godlike late game ,you are tanky enough and your  heals are so damn strong. All you have to do is stay safe, don't get caught , stay behind the tank and close to ADC.Even if you get caught ,the 3026.png can save you .

From Bronze to Platinum Back to Top

soraka stats.png

Elo hell is not hell anymore once you learn the Soraka Power.I actually played a lot of champs this season         (12.png40.png201.png117.png25.png89.png53.png,etc),but Soraka is always my secret weapon.
