Summoner Spells Back to Top

Let's be honest here, you only ever need 4.png and 3.png with 16.png. If you play correctly, the only ever time you need 4.png is to escape a 4 man gank on bot. And there's really no excuse of not taking 3.png, that's the core of supporting in the first place.

The only thing to be noted here is that you always use 3.png on the enemy ADC, matterless of who the enemy support is, the support can maximum do a burst damage and then it hits cooldowns, meanwhile the enemy ADC always has constant damage with basic attacks. Meaning 3.png > ADC.

Now I know what you may think: "What the f**k Kozaq? Dangerous Game and Unyielding on Soraka 16.png?".

And yes, while I do preffer those for my playstyles they CAN be switched to their respective other picks Bandit and Recovery. That's just a matter of prefference.

For me personally, that 1 additional Gold from minions won't make a difference, I play way too frontline for that, I need that extra tankiness man...

Oh boy, this is gonna be fun...

So it's no surprise that you gotta unlock first and max out astralblessing.png(W), because you're literally not a 16.png without those sweet heals. There's a thing though that I keep seeing at wannabe supports, do NOT use astralblessing.png unles your ADC is at least missing 10% of his health bar (No, you can't tell exactly, you gotta proximate). If you heal the ADC when he's not missing more than 10% of his Health bar then you waste YOUR 10% health on astralblessing.png. Be conservative, be a winner!

Now the next thing you can notice with your eyeballs is that apart from level 6, 11 and 17 where you ALWAYS unlock wish.png(R) is that I highly preffer to do a Hybrid-type of unlocking for starcall.png(Q) and infuse.png(E). Now you'll ask me "But Kozaq, what the absolute f**k is wrong with you?", now my dear reader, the thing is, with all the fancy assassins ( 245.png238.png35.png ), all the overly-dramatic fighters ( 2.png122.png157.png ) and all the sniper mages ( 99.png161.png63.png ) you can barely hit the starcall.png(Q) nowadays without being poked back with a nearly instakilling ability, which makes me want to unlock both starcall.png(Q) and infuse.png(E) instead of maxing one at a time. Sure, while starcall.png(Q) won't be at max efficiency, you will have shorter cooldown for infuse.png(E) which will come in WAY more handy than wasting mana on a starcall.png(Q) that people can just walk away from. This of course can change based on your matchup. If the enemy has at least 3 melee attackers then go ahead and max out starcall.png(Q) first, but if they got at least 3 ranged (not including ADC) then Hybrid is the way to go.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    There's really no exception here. Always start with the Ancient Coin and 3 cookies. And may God have mercy over your soul if you don't take normal ward...
    If you're forced to recall too early, buy boots and a pink eyeball. But nothing else is better at early stages, maybe a cookie or 2.

Core Items

    Here come the fun stuff. This is the basic, core, main stuff, whatever. You NEED this!
    Trust me. This is literally heavenly build.

Situational Items

    The only health items viable with Soraka.
    The only Armor items viable with Soraka.
    The only Magic Resist items viable for Soraka.
    Only in case of Crits!

Oh God, so much to explain...

Beginning of the match is ALWAYS the same: Ancient Coin, 3 cookies and normal ward. Nothing will ever change.

Core items should ALWAYS be Talisman of Ascension, Ionian Boots and SIghstone. Only after having these 3 items you can start building tanky.

Now the problem of my other 3 items is that, the build with Guardian Angel, Mikael's Crucible and ZZ'Rot Portal is perfected for my OWN playstyle. I simply love building them, and taking advantage of every single active and passive I can get off them. That's just how I roll.

The situational items are actually more Core items than my own Core items, especially for a beginner 16.png. The reason why I put them as  "Only viable items" is because those are the most suitable items for a 16.png playstyle. Of course, situational means, if they got 3 AP and 2 AD, you build more Magic Resist, and vice versa. The only Health items are for situations where you're facing at LEAST 2 enemies with true damage ( 67.png161.png ) or if the enemy has at LEAST 2 enemies that deal Health % in damage ( 60.png245.png98.png ). If the enemy has at least 2 enemies that are based off critical strikes ( 157.png,  23.png {THIS INCLUDES ADCS} ), only then you build Randuin's Omen.

VS

Alistar

Easy

Way too easy to counter and predict.

When Alistar12.png goes in for his combo, just go around and SIlence infuse.png(E) the enemy adc, and job's done. The rest is up to your ADC to not suck at engaging...

Preferred items against Alistar12.png: Dead Man's Plate OR Banshee's Veil.

VS

Annie

Medium

Ah yes, the cancer of League embodied as a Loli.

Easy to say, hard to do: Stay away from Annie 1.png, stay out of her range, and NEVER, and I repeat, NEVER stack up with your ADC in the same spot. Do NOT give her a chance to Ult infernalguardian.png(R) both of you at the same time. That's just instant death. You just don't have any other tactics than avoid her...

Preferred items to buy against Annie 1.png: Banshee's Veil (IF only Annie1.png is AP in enemy team) + Locket of Iron Solari (ONLY if enemy team has at least 2 AP, including Annie 1.png)

VS

Ashe

Medium

This is a difficult one, but not impossible. It's quite tough to dodge Ashe's 22.png W asheW.png, I know, but oh well, try to stay away as much as possible and if you can't avoid her W asheW.png then don't get basic attacked. And pray to Lord Kozaq you don't get ultedasheR.png(R) by Ashe, cause then you're good as dead. But shouldn't be too hard of a matchup.

Preferred items against Ashe22.png: Thornmail and/or Randuin's Omen (ONLY if enemy has another enemy based off critical strikes)

VS

Bard

Easy

They just had to make another Celestial being...

It's easy actually, dodge Bard's 432.png Q bardQ.png and he's useless. Sure his basic attacks deal some damage, especially with Thunderlords, but you got Health Regen TO THE ROOF!

Preferred items against Bard432.png: None in particular, he's not usually a threat as damage,only as Crowd Control with his QbardQ.png

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

A classic "Dodge or Die". If you're getting rocketgrab.png hooked away, flash or die.

Preffered items against Blitzcrank53.png: Dead Man's Plate (for the movement speed to avoid his hooksrocketgrab.png(Q)

Preferred items against Blitzcrank53.png: Dead Man's Plate or Banshee's Veil.

VS

Brand

Hard

F**K THIS CHAMP!

Just towerhug, you have no chances of winning lane against a good Brand63.png. Unless you have a Caitlyn51.png because only she can harass back from safe range. Otherwise, don't even try to win lane, unless it's ganks. Stay in the back and enjoy the show "Last hitting with ADC".

Preferred items against Brand63.png: Banshee's Veil, Locket of Iron Solari, Spirit Visage or Warmogs (any of those work against Brand63.png in general, but prefferably to build only if enemy has 1 more more AP users, excluding Brand63.png)

VS

Braum

Medium

Honestly, it's easy and hard to counter Braum201.png at the same time.

Braum201.png really needs his adc to cooperate, meaning if enemy ADC is useless, he is useless too. Not really much to say, dodge the QbraumQ.png and you should be more than fine.

Preferred items against Braum201.png: Dead Man's Plate and Frozen Heart. (Frozen Heart is good against him cause enemies need to get closer to apply his passive, thus you can just slow down enemy attack speed with this and have better chances)

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

As we all know, Caitlyn51.png outranges the absolute s**t out of you and most ADCs. Meaning you really got nothing else to do than stay behind your ADC and watch as the farming's taking place.

Preferred items against Caitlyn51.png: Thornmail and Randuin's Omen (Randuin's Omen is best if enemy team has another critical strike champion. but since Caitlyn51.png is Crits dependant, it's good to get it only against her)

VS

Corki

Medium

Pew, Pew, Pew. That's Corki42.png for you. Basically a spamming little midget in a chopper. You really can't outrange him for pottential harasses or pokes, so by all means, stay back and just enjoy the show...

Preferred items against Corki42.png: Warmogs (since Corki deals mixed damage, building Health is just a good choice) and/or ZZ'Rot Portal (best used to counter his fast wave clearing and of course, because he has mixed damage)

VS

Draven

Easy

WELCOME TO THE LEAGUE OF infuse.pngsilence...

It's easy to counter Draven119.png, point your Qstarcall.png where his Qdravenspinning.png will land and bam, easy harass. If Draven119.png engages put a silenceinfuse.png in front of you, somehwere between you and where he's supposed to go and that should shut him up.

Preferred items against Draven119.png: Thornmail and Randuin's Omen.

VS

Ezreal

Easy

Time for a true display of infuse.pngsilence...

Easy as that, Ezreal81.png has no solo-engage pottential, and his pokeezrealmysticshot.png is laughably low damage, especially if he's unfed. Easy to dodge abilities, easy to counter with a silenceinfuse.png, just don't let him farm. Early game when his Q deals no damage, you CAN stay in front of a minion to block damage from his Qezrealmysticshot.png thus damaging his economy.

Preferred items against Ezreal81.png: Frozen Heart, Thornmail, Dead Man's Plate (Dead Man's Plate is best if he's building Iceborn Gauntlet so he won't slow you down completely)

VS

Janna

Easy

No offense to Janna40.png mains, but she's pretty much useless against Soraka16.png...

Let's see. Janna40.png has 1 engaging ability, her Wsowthewind.png, and that's just to slowdown, her shieldeyeofthestorm.png is good, but can't beat the constant healsastralblessing.png you can offer. Basically the only reedeming factor of Janna40.png is that her ultreapthewhirlwind.png is a good way to keep her ADC safe from full engages and ganks... Othewise, that's just easy lane.

Preferred items against  Janna40.png: Banshee's Veil (cause her Wsowthewind.png becomes annoying late game)

VS

Jhin

Medium

This guy hurts. But Soraka16.png can just fine handle a puss sniper...

Simple as that, laning phase means stay away from Jhin202.png when he has 4th shot (passive) available, and if you get harassed, dodge his WjhinW.png otherwise it might end badly...

Funny thing: when Jhin202.png ults, go ahead and Flash4.png towards him, and silenceinfuse.png his ultjhinR.png which instantly stops. Wasted Flash4.png indeed, but avoided any kind of sniperinojhinR.png

The only reason difficulty against him is "Medium" is because of his raw damage... Ew.

Preferred items against Jhin202.png: Thornmail, Randuin's Omen, Dead Man's Plate.

VS

Jinx

Medium

I'll be honest, Jinx222.png is that kind of champ where it doesn't matter how well you do, if your teammates do bad, she's gonna kill you anyway. That's why you're relying on ADC here, because your kit does not counter Jinx222.png in any way, but the thing is, neither does she counter you.

She has long range harassjinxQ.pngjinxW.png indeed, but her full engage is still easily winnable with a silenceinfuse.png. It's just a matter of who gets more harassed in lane.
Preferred items against Jinx222.png: Thornmail, Randuin's Omen and Frozen Heart.

VS

Kalista

Hard

The problem here is, if Kalista429.png goes all in, especially with ultkalistaR.png, you don't have too much to counter her other than Exhaust3.png, your silenceinfuse.png won't matter much, because she can just jump away with passive... Yea, you're dead if you don't have a gank or an ADC that harasses. Just stay behind and watch the show.

Preferred items against Kalista429.png: Thornmail, Randuin's Omen, Frozen Heart and Dead Man's Plate.

VS

Karma

Medium

Qkarmaheavenlywave.png OP :D

Seriously, Karma43.png is a nuissance to deal with. There's really not much you can do about it, she outdamages you by a long shot, especially with karmachakra.pngkarmaheavenlywave.pngR-Q combo. Just stay behind minions and pray that your jungler ganks.

Preferred items against Karma43.png: Banshee's Veil and Locket of Iron Solari.

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

BLERGHkogmawlivingartillery.png

Despite common belief that Kog'Maw96.png counters Soraka16.png, it's opposite actually. As Kog'Maw96.png has to stay in one placekogmawbioarcanebarrage.png and since his ultkogmawlivingartillery.png is a spam ability, just have a guess what counters it; hint:infuse.png.

Laning phase it's eeven easier, when he tries to farm with Wkogmawbioarcanebarrage.png just Qstarcall.png him and basic attack once or twice, to show dominance. Unless he has a Lux99.png or Morgana25.png next to him to help him, you're safe to harass him while he's farming.

Preferred items against Kog'Maw96.png: Frozen Heart, Thornmail and Dead Man's Plate.

VS

Leona

Easy

PRAISE THE F****NG SUNleonasolarflare.png

Leona89.png is one of those champs that goes all in, you know:Wleonasolarbarrier.png >  Eleonazenithblade.png > Qleonashieldofdaybreak.png. Now the thing is... When Leona89.png goes balls deep into your ADC, all you have to do is Qstarcall.png and Einfuse.png the enemy ADC in an instant. This will prevent serious engages and thus your ADC is bound to survive, and if your ADC is brave enough to engage back, you might just get an assist. If she goes in for you? Simple, do the same thing, but with a delay cause you're stunnedleonashieldofdaybreak.png. But you still follow the same stuff, Qstarcall.png and infuse.png the enemy ADC instantly!

Preferred items against Leona89.png: Guardian Angel (seriously, you'll be the last to be focused on if you have Guardian Angel...) and Frozen Heart.

VS

Lucian

Hard

-insert racist comment about Lucian's236.png ultimatelucianR.png here-

Lucian236.png counters the absoulte f**k out of you. If you try to Qstarcall.png, he does his fancy combo: ElucianE.png - pewpew - >QlucianQ.png - pewpew- >WlucianW.png - pewpew- and you're either half dead or dead.

It's simple: let the others kill Lucian236.png and you enjoy your passive gold and free assists. You can't do anything against him.

Preferred items agaisnt Lucian236.png: Thornmail, Frozen Heart, Dead Man's Plate and Randuin's Omen.

VS

Lulu

Medium

This tasted purple!infuse.png

Lulu's117.png a nuissance too, Like Karma43.png, but more annoying cause of her ultlulur.png and the fact that she can harass from long rangelulue.png and through minionsluluq.png. You gotta play it safe until you're tanky enough to have a 2v2.

Preferred items against Lulu: Guardian Angel and Dead Man's Plate (building these 2 will result in Lulu117.png and enemy ADC focusing your ADC, thus you can do your work)

VS

Lux

Hard

LAZORS!luxmalicecannon.png

You're gonna be towerhugging way more than you thought... Lux99.png outranges you by a LOT. You really have no other choice but to try your hardest to dodge her Qluxlightbinding.png  and Eluxlightstrikekugel.png, or even if you get hit, don't let her basic attack you to apply passive...

Preferred items against Lux99.png: Banshee's Veil and Locket of Iron Solari.

VS

Miss Fortune

Medium

You were fortunate enough to find this.

There's really not much to it. Don't stay behind minions, otherwise this missfortunericochetshot.png(Q) will hurt. When Miss Fortune21.png ultsmissfortunebullettime.png just silenceinfuse.png her instantly and BAM, no more damage taken.

Preferred items against Miss Fortune21.png:Thornmail and Dead Man's Plate.

VS

Morgana

Medium

I swear, everytime I see a Morgana25.png hitting her Qdarkbindingmissile.png I instantly imagine her yelling "GO F**K YOURSELF*.

To easily put it, Morgana25.png and Soraka16.png counter eachother, but based on timing. If Morgana25.png hits the Qdarkbindingmissile.png on your ADC then Einfuse.png and Qstarcall.png the enemy ADC and then focus on healingastralblessing.png your ADC. But do NOT start healingastralblessing.png if Morgana25.png hits you with all her stuff darkbindingmissile.pngtormentedsoil.pngQ+E.

Preferred items against Morgana25.png: Banshee's Veil and Spirit Visage.

VS

Nami

Medium

Easily put, make Nami267.png suffer after using her WnamiW.png with a Qstarcall.png and try to tell your ADC to engage once her WnamiW.png on cooldown. Otherwise, passive lane. Not worth to poke.

Preferred items against Nami267.png: Banshee's Veil

VS

Sivir

Easy

So how do you deal with a Sivir15.png? Simple, stay behind and look at your ADC farming.
Don't even try to Qstarcall.png her, she'll just get free mana with her Espellshield.png. When the enemy engages, it's way more efficient to Einfuse.png and Qstarcall.png the enemy support than Sivir15.png.
Preferred items against Sivir15.png: Thornmail and Dead Man's Plate.

VS

Sona

Medium

Ah yes, Sona37.png.
You can't harass her, you can't poke her ADC either...
It's pretty much a stalemate lane. Make sure to not stack up in the spot with your ADC so you won't get ultedsonacrescendo.png on. Let's be real, no Sona37.png would ultsonacrescendo.png a Soraka16.png instead of your ADC.
Preferred items against Sona37.png: Banshee's Veil/Spirit Visage (get Banshee's Veil if they got only Sona37.png or get Spirit Visage if they got another AP user) and Locket of Iron Solari.

VS

Thresh

Easy

A classic "Dodge or Die". If you're getting threshQ.png hooked away, flash or die.

Preffered items against Thresh412.png: Dead Man's Plate (for the movement speed to avoid his hooksthreshQ.png(Q)

Preferred items against Thresh412.png: Dead Man's Plate or Banshee's Veil

VS

Tristana

Easy

Is that a rocket in your pocket? No, it's my d**k.
Tristana's18.png easy, when she puts the Edetonatingshot.png on you, just walk away, not your problem.
Avoid staying near minions because of her Edetonatingshot.png passive. You can use Q starcall.png on Tristana18.pngfor slight pokes in lane, depending on enemy support.
Preferred items against Tristana18.png: Thornmail and Frozen Heart.

VS

Twitch

Hard

Twitch29.png counters Soraka16.png maybe a bit too hard. His passive with damage over time plus his stacks for the EtwitchE.png just hurt too much. You can poke him in lane with Qstarcall.png but when you don't know where he istwitchQ.png, just prepare your pink wards because his ulttwitchR.png hurts even more...
Preferred items against Twitch29.png: Thornmail and Frozen Heart.

VS

Varus

Medium

This guy110.png is a c**t.
Avoid his Qvarusq.png at all costs, and if he ever ultsvarusr.png you, instantly Einfuse.png him and just walk away/Flash4.png away. And never, ever stay in his Evaruse.png, lowers the heal and regen ratio.
Preferred items against Varus110.png: Thornmail and Dead Man's Plate.

VS

Vayne

Medium

The dark should fear my silenceinfuse.png.

While Soraka16.png is heavily countered by true damagevaynesilveredbolts.png, Vayne67.png has a hard time to actually do anything if she's not focusing the ADC. It's easy actually, don't get hit 3 times in the lane and don't stay near walls. When Vayne67.png ultsvayneinquisition.png exhaust her and she's good as dead.

Preferred items against Vayne67.png: Thornmail, Frozen Heart, Dead Man's Plate and Warmog's (Warmog's only if enemy has another true damage dealer apart from Vayne67.png)

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

Tentacle hentai...
Dodge Vel'Koz's161.png Q'svelkozQ.png in lane or it'll be your doom. Don't get combo-ed by his QvelkozQ.pngWvelkozW.pngEvelkozE.png or you'll just lose a chunk of Health without even getting close...
Whenever Vel'Koz161.png ultzvelkozR.png instantly Einfuse.png him, that stops his ult. And that's the best you can do.
Preferred items against Vel'Koz161.png: Locket of Iron Solari, Banshee's Veil or Spirit Visage.

VS

Zilean

Hard

Zilean26.png did 9/11.
He's both easy and hard. Easy because it's easy to understand how to play against, hard because he's actually countering Soraka16.png. In lane, just dodge his Qtimebomb.pngWrewind.pngQtimebomb.png combo, or just simple Q'stimebomb.png, and you should be safe till late game. But late game, if Zilean26.png slow's you downtimewarp.png, you're dead. That's why he's a counter to Sora16.png.
Preferred items against Zilean26.png: Banshee's Veil, Spirit Visage or Locket of Iron Solari.

VS

Zyra

Hard

In my opinion, Zyra 143.png counters Soraka 16.png the most.

She has extremely long range poke with zyraQ.png(Q) and and zyraE.png(E), plus those damned vegetables zyraW.png(E) and her passive are just too cancer to play against. Make sure to tell your ADC in advance to dodge or you'll AFK, cause otherwise Zyra143.png will just 2v1 win bot lane...

Preferred items against Zyra143.png: Banshee's Veil (IF only Zyra143.png is AP in enemy team) + Locket of Iron Solari (ONLY if enemy team has at least 2 AP, including Zyra 143.png)
