Summoner Spells Back to Top

One little thing...


Before we begin I wanna say,
This is a guide to how I play Soraka, so you learn my way.
It might not be the best or most efficient way of playing her, but I have fun when I play her this way.
I will try to explain as good as possible why I build or think things, if you have questions, feel free to ask me and I'll answer the best I can.

This guide is not finished yet, please keep that in mind, thank you!

Summoner Spells:

These are the basic spells for about any support. Some supports take 14.png but this is not suited for Soraka. She has to come way too close to use it, and you already lose health when healing so taking 14.png is not a risk worth taking! I have seen people pick 21.png which is possible, but not a good option on my opinion. Yes you save yourself, but who saves your ADC? If you really wanna pick 21.png, only do so when someone else in your team has 3.png.

Leveling skills with Soraka is all about what you yourself prefer.

I personally like to deal a little damage on the beginning of the game to help my ADC push a little, and this is why I start sorakaq.png. This will also heal me up a little when I get hurt, plus, it slows enemies that are hit. If your Jungler is no sustain or if you think you can survive easily until level 2, you can take sorakaw.png first. I always level my sorakae.png 3rd, and, obviously, you take sorakar.png at level 6,11 and 16 respectively.

The reason I level my skills this way, is because I want to self healing and damage to increase on sorakaq.png, so I can keep up with the poke of the enemies and so the buff I transfer to my ADC is good too, but I also want my sorakaw.png to go on lower cooldown and to heal more, which I level one first, then the other, and then the first again. This may look weird and stupid, but it works for me. Feel free to give it a try.

If you want to level 1 skill to the max first you need to look at what you want the most. Do you want the poke and self healing from sorakaq.png or do you want to heal your ADC a lot with sorakaw.png, which cooldown lowers with each rank.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Basic start

Core Items

    First items you should get. More vision, more regeneration and boots to dodge skills.
    Finish your Medalion somewhere in between the Redemption and the Chalice of Harmony. Chalice gives nice mana regen, and you need it for Athene's Holy Grail to heal A LOT.
    Example of a final build. You can see what your team needs the most. Ardent Cencer is nice since with your ult since its passive works on everyone at the same time at that moment. This is what I mostly build. Yes I have 10% cooldown too much, but no matter what support item you build, you will always face this.
    Other end build option. Eye of the Watchers gives less health than a Ruby Sightstone, but you can make up for the Health loss by going Rylai's. This also gives a nice boost to your AP as well.

Situational Items

    Get one of these instead or Ardent Cencer if your team is having trouble and depending on the match up.

Why I build these items:


3069.png or 2302.png>>>>>> Depending on the team you are facing (or what you prefer), you build these. If you face a lot of AD champions, and need kiting, you can go for 3069.png because of it's passive. Otherwise, you can pick either one. The 2302.png gives you an extra item slot, which can come in handy, but it also means you cannot upgrade your 2049.png into 2045.png, which means you'll lose the extra health and the passive of the 2045.png.

2045.png>>>>>> If you build 3069.png, get this item. You are a Support, you buy the Sightsone that gives the team the much needed Vision. This Ruby Sightstone is even better than the regular Sightstone, as it gives more wards to place, more Health AND it lowers the Cooldown on your items with Active's! So upgrade that stone!

3009.png or 3117.png>>>>>> Pick one, Soraka is SLOW, so one of these would be the best, especially since you reach 40% Cooldown with your build. If you roam and Run much, go for 3117.png, if you want some speed but don't roam and stick to your ADC or other ally, go for 3009.png

3107.png>>>>>> A strong item, ideal for Supports. It gives them Health and Mana Regen, 300 Health and Cooldown, all stats that are great on Soraka. With its passive and so the ability to help allies at a distance, and, without costing you health yourself, it almost is a must-have on her. The item also has Heal and Shield Power, making your heals stronger.

3174.png>>>>>> This item has so much too offer Soraka, it gives her much needed Mana Regen and Cooldown Reduction, it gives her Ability Power and Magic Resist, which is ideal against team comps with mages and AP Supports. Besides that, this item has a really nice Passive, which increases your healing abilities by a lot. It almost doubles.

Fill-in items/Situational:


3116.png>>>>>>Since it got cheaper, it became an easier buy for the Supports. And, it gives good stats for Soraka, Health and Ability Power. With all these items containing Health, you will not be nearly as squishy.

3504.png>>>>>> An item I also buy often in my main build, though this is more situational. The stats are good for Soraka, Ability Power, Mana Regen and Cooldown Reduction. The secondary passive is also nice to have for your fast attacking allies, but in a team with mages or an ADC like 81.png the item falls off a little. It is a beast on 51.png22.png222.png429.png29.png and other fast attackers though. Examples of non-ADC's being 23.png157.png102.png11.png

3222.png>>>>>> Another nice item on Soraka with its Magic Resist, Mana Regen and Cooldown Reduction, and an ideal buy against teams with lots of Magic Damage and Crowd Control. If the enemy team is full AD though, no need to buy this...

3190.png>>>>>> A nice item to make you more tanky, since it gives a bit of Armor as well as Magic Resist, and it has a nice passive. I rarely buy it since the Aura got removed though.

3060.png>>>>>> A nice item to make you more tanky, since it gives Armor and a little Magic Resist, and it has a nice passive if the enemy team has AP Ability spammers. I rarely buy it since the Aura got removed though.

3050.png>>>>>> This item could also be a choice, to give ADC's that build little Crit chance some more Crit. The stats, Ability Power, Armor, Mana and Cooldown are also ideal for our Unicorn.

Other options:


3065.png>>>>>> Ideal if you want to profit from your own healing power, and against those pesky AP champions that want to burst you down all the time like 84.png55.png105.png245.png7.png and many more.

3075.png>>>>>> With this item, you make these quick basic attackers like 157.png11.png102.png56.png and all ADC's cry, and they will think twice about picking you as a target, leaving you alive to do your job: Give your allies those insane heals and keep them alive!

3102.png>>>>>> Ideal to block spells and CC first, plus it gives Health and Magic Resist.

3089.png>>>>>>>>>>>>It gives a whole lot of AP! Even more so thanks to it's passive, which makes this item great to make your heals stronger. But as it costs 3800 Gold, it is really expensive, and you might not get the opportunity to buy this unless the game keeps going and going as neither side gives up.



ARAM:

3027.png3116.png3174.png3107.png3065.png3083.png

As of patch 7.8  3301.png or 3096.png are no longer availible!!! Start with components from your 3027.png right from the start. I mostly buy 1026.png and 1028.png first, since I already got enough mana thanks to the 13.png spell that I take..

About me Back to Top

Hi! I am CrystalWolf, a League player from the Netherlands.

I made an account back in 2013, because a friend thought I would love the game, but since he forced it on me a little and explained nothing I never really played.
This was until 2015 or so, when a new friend of mine who also plays League calmly and quietly taught me how to play the game, how it works with runes and masteries, everything. Ever since then, I play League on an almost daily basis. I started with ARAM's, and started practicing on Summoner's Rift much later.
Despite that, I became GOLD V in season 5, and ended in GOLD III in season 6, because I had not enough time and focus to play due to private reasons. My friend told me if I had more time, I could have easily reached Platinum. 
Oh well, better luck this season right?

I main the Support Role, but I also like to play ADC or Mid-Lane. Jungle is fun too but I still need to get used to the new changes. Sometimes I play Top, but only when I am playing solo as my friend loves the Top-Lane. My favorite champions are Nami and Ashe, but I play lots of others.

The guide is not completely done yet, so please be patient... Match ups are a lot of work haha

Why Soraka? Back to Top

Why do I play Soraka?


Ever since I started playing League of Legends, I liked Soraka right away.
Just like in real life, I like to help people, and in the Support Role, I feel like you can do that very well, especially if you have a Support with heals or shields.
Soraka is a real healer, her only downside being that she is squishy and loses health healing her team.
However, depending on how you are building her, you can heal up so much damage, that you just keep your team alive for ages, and they can deal all the damage they like, and, with 45% Cooldown and your sorakaw.png at max rank, it has only a 1 second cooldown. Imagine the frustration of your enemies when you keep healing your carries. Also, sorakaq.png is a great ability in my opinion, it heals you, makes you run away faster and it gives a small healing buff that you can transfer to your ADC. Her sorakae.png is really strong CC and with your sorakar.png you can save a dying ally from across the map. Combine your insane healing with the item 3107.png and you're golden. 
She is also fun to play in ARAM, if you're using the build I described or something along these lines. Thanks to the massive amount of health in all items (except 3174.png) you get way over 3000 health, activating 3083.png's passive, making you if you combine it with the summoner spell 13.png the annoying "Walking Ambulance" as I call her.

This is why I like Soraka, and I will not trade her away easily if I get her in ARAM!

Soraka Things Back to Top

16.png16.png16.png16.png16.png16.png16.png16.png16.png16.png16.png

Answers to questions people asked me about Soraka:


Why do you like Soraka so much?

I like her because most people hate her haha. Joking aside, I like Soraka since she has a global heal with her sorakar.png. If you build her well, she can heal a great amount with her sorakaw.png, plus, she can heal herself if she hits opponents with sorakaq.png. Then there is the ever annoying silence and, if lucky, snare on sorakae.png. So CC and healing, I love it. Plus, she is a unicorn :D


What is your favorite Soraka skill?

I like all her skills really, but her sorakaq.png the most, as that heals her, and you're able to keep healing your team!! The sorakar.png is nice too for the assists you get when your team mate wins a fight.

What is your favorite Soraka skin?

Dryad Soraka is my favorite, but Celestine Soraka is really nice as well.


What is your least favorite Soraka skin?

Program Soraka and Order of the Banana Soraka. I can't pick which one I find worse. I think the first, as I really dislike robots... the other is just overused and in my opinion, ugly..


Favorite ADC to pair up with?

Soraka fits nicely with any ADC really, as your job is to keep them alive while they deal damage. I am just careful when I pick her, against a Janna for example I'd do it, but not against a Blitzcrank.


What Mastery level are you on Soraka?

Level 5 at the moment. Haven't played her in a while.

AD Soraka? Are you nuts?

Yup, I guess so. When I am bored, I try random stuff... against bots first, then in normals... funny thing is, it doesn't do too bad! Though I'd say the build I used is more a "hybrid" than AD.
I recommend first trying it against bots, and in normals later. I do not recommend it for ranked, unless you don't care about what you want to play... or risk reports.


Which items  are good for AD Soraka then?

As I said, I build her more hybrid than AD, this because her heals are otherwise useless.
Nice items are:
3072.png3153.png3139.png3046.png3085.png3094.png


Example build?

3072.png3165.png3094.png3153.png3089.png3158.png


Explain the build?

3072.png and 3153.png are for the Life Steal, so you heal yourself, so you can heal others.
3094.png is for the extra range, as your range is rather short. Plus, it gives attack speed, making you heal faster with the items mentioned above.
3165.png and 3089.png are for the AP. With 3165.png you also get cooldown reduction and extra mana.
3158.png are for extrs cooldown.

Are  you going to make a guide for AD Soraka?

Not likely, unless there are requests for it.
