Pros

soraka is a life saver who has amazing support and a decent cc


Guide Top

cons

low cooldown reduction till late game CANNOT HOLD A LANE !!!!! squishy. slow attack animation (hard to last hit) can feed if used wrong


Guide Top

Positioning

As soraka you need to know how to stay out of fights and heal teammates but a lot of times u will be charged. Also as Soraka you need to have your carries protect you or you might end up feeding. as soraka u also need to really hump your carries leg due to her low survivability.
Also try not to stay to far back or you might get ganked or out of range for your heal/mana/silence

How to use soraka's spells

As soraka you should only be using your e skill on champions who have mana needs or being used to interrupt a spell. With your w u need to keep your high damage carries alive but also make sure you don't let the tank die. your r and your Heal summoner spell should be used to aid your allies only because as soraka if you get ganked your most likely going to die unless you have your carry nearby. Also when your ally is fighting someone use your heals for assists or if there far away and your ally is about to die use your ulti at the last second to so the enemy wont expect it also DONT BE AFRAID TO OVER HEAL its not good to over heal but at early and mid game it can be a life saver due to the fact that everyone has such little hp UPDATE!
if there is a vlad on your team please know
that if he is in his pool while you ulti he
will NOT be healed


Guide Top

Farming

As soraka you'll find last hitting extremely hard but luckily soraka doesn't need many items to be usefull. Also if your laneing with a carry who knows how to last hit i suggest you just stay in EXP range and not last hit while keeping the carry's mana up. After lane phase you can try to farm but make sure you don't miss a team fight!


Guide Top

reasoning for items

MM for your carry who should be laneing with you if your carry doesn't use mana i suggest getting boots of speed so you can keep up with your partner then u can turn them into boots of mobility and then start building your soulshroud if theres not very many mana users on your team u can shurelya's for the MP5 and use. Morello's tomb for the CDR and AP ( the mp5 isn't bad either.) Rabadon's deathcap for increased ap. Ageis for the extra defense to help your team out live your heal cooldowns. the tear of goddes for the mana and then archangel staff MAKE SURE YOU MAX TEARS FOR BEST STATS!!!!!


Guide Top

summoner spells

most summoner spells are just personal preference but this is what i prefer


Good:
heal
flash
ghost
teleport
fortify
clairvoyance

Ok:
cleanse(not bad)
Revive

Bad:
ignite(your not a carry...)
exhaust(^^^)
clarity( you e is all the mana you need)
smite(WTF?)
rally( not as good as it use to be =/)
