Welcome and Why You Should Read My Guide :)

Hello Everyone,
This is my first Soraka guide. I am experienced in Soraka and manage to achieve a 75% win-rate (ranked game) in NA server.

Okay, okay....I know I am just a Silver V player, and I don't deserve the right to guide you. Still, you have to know something from me before examining me.

    - First, I only play during the vacation (summer and winter breaks only). My rank starts to drop due to my inactive.
(*Note: You start dropping LeaguePoint after 29 days of not playing LOL)
    - Honestly, I played Soraka only 4 times in ranked game, and I won 3 games only.
(*Note: Actually, I lost one game because my ADC DCed. I have to one vs two bot games. Soraka solobot, sad..... With my guide, I didn't feed and almost managed to get a double-kill) “Excuses...”
    - Within those 3 games I won, people called me “ninja soraka”, “banana soraka”, “minion-boss soraka”, and.... “virgin soraka”
(*Note: I got the name “virgin soraka” because the enemy team never manage to kill me. You get what I mean....)


“Wow, even worse. You are an inexperienced player, writing a guide for me!”

Okay....This time I am speechless. You don't have to read my guide if you don't want to.

But if you do, welcome :)

Pros / Cons

Pros:


High Sustainability with Q (Starcall)
Good Sustain for ADC (to farm longer)
High movement speed
Can Heal Minion! (My favorite)
Great Crowd Control
Assist King = a lot of money (I wish there is a skin called Penta-Assist Soraka)
Can Help JG a lot (actually everyone...)

Cons:


Q (Starcall) is hard to land (for greater distance)

Low HP Stats (Squishy)

High Cooldown especially ulti (Solve this problem with my guide)

No escape (Solve this problem with my guide)

Really Situational (“moderate” to play)

Remember and Understand As A Soraka

- You are a support, and you MUST ward the "world" wisely.

- As a support, you always think for the good of your team.

- As a squishy girl, you should always avoid taking damage. This gives you more chance to heal your allies.

- As a Soraka, you should kite with enemy team. Throw and LAND your Q, while not taking damage.

- You always play passive, not agressive. Your Q is only for you to heal your teammates more.

- If you want to play aggressive, don't pick soraka.
