Welcome and Why You Should Read My Guide :)
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.
- Honestly, I played Soraka only 4 times in ranked game, and I won 3 games only.
- Within those 3 games I won, people called me “ninja soraka”, “banana soraka”, “minion-boss soraka”, and.... “virgin soraka”
“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 :)

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.
