if you are planning to build athenes as your only cdr item, use 9 cdr blues.


if you are planning to buy athenes and spirit visage, use 3 cdr blues.

use whatever yellows you want, armor, scaling armor, health, scaling health.

you can also use full ap blues

you can take jungle reduction if you want to take wraiths at lvl 1, although not required


also highly situational is 21/9 masteries against an extremely passive opponent. this may help you harass harder.

always change your masteries based on enemy comp.

your silence and heals now suck, so max out q asap and then heal.


if not taking damage, take another point in q at level 3 for harder harass.

Items

Back to Top ▲
Start With
Core
Situational

if mid and planning to take wraiths at lvl 1, take crystalline flask + 3. if top and you think thier jungler might try to gank you top then you can start crystalline flask + pot + ward.


to take wraiths at lvl 1, you spam q at the first wave and push asap and then rush wraiths, using 2 charges of crystalline flask.

otherwise start doran ring + 2.

max cdr is pretty much a must, if they have no ap then you still get cdr shoes, but get armseekers and rylais and maybe randiuns before building athenes. make sure you will have 35/40% cdr by your fourth item.

zhonyas and ga are good defensive items

unless massively ahead, do NOT rush chalice against ad, you will get wrecked

there is no reason to buy tear, it is a bad buy on soraka

Uh... My First game with this was top VS Rumble. Went pretty nice actually!
Ganks were a bit of a trouble but I won in the end.

In reply to your comment I think that you rate many enemies as to easy :p
It may be easy to poke them early. But a good enemy will not suicid to soraka that easy. Soraka falls off mid-lategame against some of those champs like anni,vlad,diana. Hence I rate them as medium and not easy.

However this is a good all around guide. There are many ways to play Sora.
I like your runes. Our item build is pretty different though. And I tend to need heal at lvl 3 or mostly 4.

Why do you go for Randuin's instead of Sunfire Cape? You are paying mostly for the slow and you already have a perma AoE slow with Rylai's.

Thornmail also sounds really nice, because of the MR shred on Q. Rylai's, Athene's, Thornmail, Sunfire Cape, Abyssal sounds like a strong build for heavy ad teams. (not necessarily in that order)

Against tanky teams I'd just swap out Thornmail for Liandry's.

Against heavy ap, maybe Banshee's or Bulwark.

How good is maximum cdr on Soraka? I only have 24% with the build above, but you can always get blue buff or an Elixir to (almost) cap out.

Upvoted, because of your thinking outside the box (no Thresh pun intended)

Well, randuins also gives an attack speed reduction and if you get hit by a ranged attack, then you slow them even more. Since soraka is ranged, sunfire cape would only be useful if you were in malee range. Which I guess could be the case in team fights. Idk, I just like more slows, I guess it's just a preference.

Thornmail is pretty good item if they have 2 or more auto attack based champions. I probably buy it sometimes if they are auto attack heavy.

Liandry's is just an overall good item on soraka with slows, unless they are all squishy in which case death cap would just be better.

Against ap, I think abyssal, merc threads, athene offers enough MR so that you should go for more health.

CDR is extremely strong on soraka since more starcall casts means more mr reduction. It's good to make sure you can get near max cdr with blue buff, cdr items, etc...

There are a lot of ways to play soraka, this is just what I do.

I think you have a point there. Sunfire only has 400 range even though the passive is really nice on Soraka. Also that attack speed slow on Omen, nomnomnom.

Omen seems to outshine Sunfire in team fights, but what about the laning phase? It sounds like a decent item against ad casters if you can buy it early. It has roughly the same dps as a level 2 Q.

well soraka still wants to try to keep her distance in laning phase, so sunfire passive still might not be that good.

also soraka hard counters pretty much every ad caster, seeker's armguard should be good enough.

Okay, agree'd ^^.

Are flat cdr glyphs an alternative to flat ap, if you don't go for a cdr heavy build?

Thanks for all your help and reasonings :)

flat ap is extremely useful, especially early game

without flat ap runes, you might find that 2 starcalls might leave the minion at almost no hp left, and you might miss the last hit or starcall again

A couple of friends of mine went into a normals game, and I wanted to play a champ in the top lane (I main top) that I haven't done yet, and I wanted to and proceeded to play Top Lane Soraka. I didn't know exactly what to build (Did a Meji for funsies) and I have to say, she is very, very fun in the top lane. She may have a bit of trouble early game, but whoo man, they had to camp me to get to my tower. Very nice guild, KirbyCake. Will refer to this next time I get the chance to play her. :3

Curious.. Why is Kassadin yellow instead of green? Just laned vs him, and he was utterly helpless since he's melee..

Is it cause he has really strong roam so he can get fed that way?

I am looking at the masteries, and may I ask why the default option is to have neutral monster resist? is it for the wraiths? also, would you elaborate as to why tear isn't a good decision for raka. I'm not a high elo myself, but i'd've thought a shield and more base mana would have been a good thing on raka? Thanks for the guide, look forward to testing it.

yes, if you are planning to take wraiths at lvl 1 then you can use the jungler monster resist.

soraka is a cdr mage, she needs athenes way more than tear. tear doesn't offer cdr or mr. she doesn't scale that hard on ap and a fully stacked seraph is only 50 more damage on e.
