Summoner Spells Back to Top

14.png always the better choise


Take 14.png not only when your foe is low. Sometimes its better to engage with 14.png, because the foes spellvamp is useless. Try it out urself. dont be so egoistic to kill and so waste your 14.png. be smart. soraka dont need this much kills. use your Ulti to get some Assits on everylane. this will be more important!

Its possible also to play with 7.png mid. i tested it myself and it works really good!

this is very offensiv! u have to play very agressiv and dont let ur opponent farm and it will be easy. take defense points with armor and magie resist to play more careful


u can try 21/0/9 with meditation, fleet of foot and summoner s insight. but i dont recommend it!

Start with E:

You can silence a foe when you invade or u get invaded. also in laning you can poke the foe hard and stop him from farming.

Max Q :

Its your ultimative dmg-skill. you need the magic penetration. in teamfights you can dmg them all at once and this is very important. You can do so much dmg only by spamming your Q

Max E :

With magic penetration and your stacks from your Q u can do unbelivable dmg with your E. This dmg is important to pick out the focustarget also you silence him and you can refresh much mana for your mates.

Why max W last?:

if your get focused your fucked. also if your W is level 1 or 5. Because you play mid u need to be selfish and use the W on your own. The seond priority is your mates. Dont forget you not play support your a full AP Carry

When start with Q?:

If you play against an invisible foe like eve or shaco because your Q also hits invisible targets. Try your best out! 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    epic start
    dmg ap start
    bully start against squishy targets
    situational

Core Items

    ap soraka
    tank soraka
    important items
    build 1 tankraka
    build 2 more apraka. also quite usefull FOR THIS BUILD U NEED CDR RUNES, BECAUSE U DONT GET 40% WITH IT! USE IT IF FEEDED
    Use this items while on laneing phase. Otherwise you are oom the whole game. If u are really feeded, build into athene's. If not sell it later for Warmogs
    support build

Situational Items

    if your enemy team is full of pokers
    vs full ad team and if your team is not so tanky. But i think you only need this iteam in 1 of 100 games
    for more support and a little cleanse + heal
    only if enemy adc is feeded or they have very high ad damage.
    good vs vlad, aatrox, warwrick, renekton. U can sell your boots lategame if needed

Remember! 

You are a better supporter with this guide but still doing some good damage.

Dont forget to ward early. Soraka gets often very early ganks!

Laning Phase Back to Top

WORK IN PROGRESS...Update coming soon!

tgehsmmu.jpg  click me


Top Lane:

These are important Ward-Spots!
The Topbattle is all about poke. Early Soraka is a pokemonster. Try to get first kill on toplane. Midgame is farming and harassing your opponent. Use your Ultimate to get some assists and help on other lanes without roaming. 

Roamsoraka: 

Mobile ambulance. Roam other lanes, and heal your teammate. Push a little bit and go back to your lane. This can be really annoying for the enemy team!

bild 1.jpg

 

Some Places you can ward, if your jungler didnt.

Wardspots for mid

Just lookt at the big map for more information


"and her roaming is ****, help during gank is **** and escape is ****..
but if all those things aren't

needed.. you rape mid"

Soraka Spotlight Back to Top



Riots Spotlight

at 3:20 Mid Guide begins. From there u can get some impressions of laning. But its Season 2 with the different items. I will update my own guide i a few days

The Engage Back to Top

16_icon_64.png

On Sololane

Her engage is really good and annoying for every champ, especially in early game. Thats the point. Try to get the most kills you can get in early game. Use Ignite often as possible, if you play with ignite. So you dont want to kill a foe with ignite you want to bring the health bar down. Silence your foe with your E and use Starcall. Autohit as much as possible. Sorakas range is very high. Remember that u are very squishy. Do not chase to much. Poke your foe and engage 3-4 times then your foe have to go back or is dead. DO NOT FORGET TO WARD YOUR LANE! Its very important so that you not get ganked. Buy 2 wards as soon as possible.


In Teamfight

As an ap carry Soraka is often the first target. Stay behind. Do not waste your silence. Wait for ultis where it is needed (e.g. Katas ulti, Nunus ulti and so on...)
Spam your Q and try to hit as much champs as possible. Heal around, look at the healthbars and wait your ultimate, with ap soraka its really annoying for the enemy team, because it has a 70% ap ratio and can heal up to 800 life and more on every champion.  






The Game Back to Top

Early Game:

Farm minions with your autohit and E. Do not forget to poke your foe with your E and Q. This will be a huge dmgoutput in this phase of the game. You can also try to kill your foe here. Thats the point: U can poke your foe and also farming at the same moment, thats why soraka is early game so strong.


Mid Game:

Now it will be more difficult. You will need some help mid or try roaming. Ask for ganks. Your focus now is farming, getting blue and look where is help needed with your ultimate. So you can get some assists and money. If you get ganked, hope for the best :)


Late Game:

They will try to focus you. What can you do to prevent? Stay behind and not go alone. Know, you more a Support with huge dmgoutput. Silence the focustarget. Try to get much blues as possible. Try not to steal kills so much. You should have get your kills in early and mid game. Its to risky to poke in late game this hard. Be more careful and stay alive. Still try to get assist with your ultimate. it is normal to have over 20 assists in a game.

What a game.

Final words Back to Top

Thanks for using my guide. Remember its still in progress. I still will figure out the best way to play with soraka.

Iam happy to read your feedback, so i can still improve my guide with your ideas and hints!
