Introduction

PLEASE DONT VOTE OR USE YET. I HIT PUBLISH ON ACCIDENT. SORRY!


One thing I must say before you vote. Keep this in mind. This Soraka build is for people like me, who like to fight and deal a lot of damage while still supporting your team.

This build makes her tanky, so it's harder to focus you. It gives her a lot of Magic Pen, so you can deal heavy damage. Also, it gives her a lot of Ability Power to support your team and still deliver heavy damage. Her crowd control becomes insane with Rylai's Crystal Scepter added to your arsenal.

This Soraka is built to get close and personal. All her items go well together. Especially after you complete the Archangel's Staff.

Remember, don't initiate the fight but don't stay far back after it becomes initiated.

Pros / Cons

Pros:

-Quite Tanky
-A lot of Ability Power
-Good crowd control
-Massive Heals
-Early-Late game sustainability



Cons:

-Entering fights too soon will get you focused
-You are still soft early game
-You may get told you are support and not to farm or get kills. Ignore it
-The build is expensive. Make sure you last hit many minions with auto-attack, Q and E last hits
-Easy for a beginner to miscalculate last hits with Q
-Pretty slow movement speeds compared to other champs
