Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello and welcome to my second build here on Mobafire.
I've read pretty much all builds about Soraka and I did finally come up with a build that does not lack of damage, heal or defense.
Some of the builds I have seen have far too much AP since they rush AP straigt away. that is not the way to play Soraka. She has to stay alive in a teamfight and spam Q to reduce enemies magic resistance and silence the most deadly champions.
Other builds lack of AP, they rush gold items and no AP items whatsoever and doesn't take up in starcall which is a must for her. Since her heal has been nerfed to 2x the time it can't be spamable and therefore starcall has to be upgraded. And other builds lack of Aura.
I believe this build is what you were looking for:)
Pros / Cons
She's a great farmer
Good at harassing early game
The enemy will hate you for taking all of their MR
Can carry team
Easily focused if not careful
Now to the runes.
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
Magic penetration to make starcall and infuse work better.
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist and Greater Seal of Armor
I take them because Soraka is very squishy and easily focused down. When duolaning I always take flat.
Greater Quintessence of Gold
I don't think I have seen anyone who has bought these Quints. Anyway, they're very good for supports since supports do not get many minion kills.
With her Quintessences and Masteries she gets a total 4gold/10sec passive. Free $$ in my eyes.
I start with
because it gives Soraka a very nice start with some HP, Mana regen and a bit AP. Compared to other items this is the best start item.
After that I get Kage's Lucky Pick because passive gold is very important to Soraka. Then I get because mobility is very important to her.
I want to support my team and myself as much as possible, therefore: grab It has such a nice aura and your armor + Magic resistance will jump to about 90-100 Amazing:)
Upgrade to So you can keep up with your teams speed. The Cooldown reduction makes starcall more spamable.
Now We're fast and not squishy that means it's time to get some AP. Start off with You get stacks pretty fast I can promise you that.
Now upgrade to It helps your team nuking down hard carries or players with high HP but low Magic resistance.
TIP: Get their resistance low with starcall and then use
Now buy if your team lacks of CC, if not then buy and
Whenever you are buying remember to buy the most defensive item first, which is Giant'sin this case.
With it's [icon=Negatron Cloak
Don't forget to buy wards inbetween - Remember that it's not only your job to buy wards, it's the whole teams job.
Soraka does need gold, but do never take minion kills from your carry if you're laning. You can get easy gold with Starcall in Mid-Late game. She shuts down waves easily and is a fast jungler aswell.
In the lane phase you should stay in the bushes as much as possible, throw a banana and use starcall, if the enemy overextends then go a bit back, silence him and throw a banana and another starcall on him.
Just keep on harassing with bananas, starcall and infuse.
Teamfights: In teamfight you should silence the AP carry, and hit as many as possible with starcall to reduce their magic resistance. Mainly focus on healing your carry or any other squishy carries of your team or the one being focused.
Don't waste the ultimate on 1 person unless it will safe him. Wait till everybody on your team has lost the amount of HP your ulti can heal them for.
This one is for pictures and videos
Anyway write below what you write:)
Thank you for reading my Soraka Build.
