Introduction

This is my first guide so bear with me. I love tanking and being a damage dealer like anyone else but sometimes we all need a change. Soraka is one of my favorite characters to play to fill that role. She is an awesome support by giving heals and mana and in times deal damage to lower the magic resist of the enemy team.

Pros / Cons

Pro:
Healer
Damage Dealer
Restores the mana of teammates so they can stay in a lane or a fight longer.
Silence
Strong late game play
Gives armor to friends. Really good for a tank pushing a tower or a mob of melee enemies.

Con:
Squishy
If the enemy team is smart they will tend to target you first.
Early game you are weak
Spells cost a bit of mana so you need a big pool and/or mana regin.

Items

As from the list of items above I try to make a 6 item combo that gives you close to the max cooldown reduction, mana regin to sustain you for long fights that require lots of spell usage, and lastly AP to give your healing spells that extra power behind to get a person from the brink of death or to rain death down in AoE to clear a lane fast to farm.

Team Work

As a ranged support who heals but has a weak life it's best to stay behind the tank(s) and the damage dealers. Push foward to do starcall but with care. You help your teams mages by lowering the enemy magic resistance but aren't any good if you die either.
