Pros And Cons

Pros:
+You can do quite a bit of damage with Starcall and Infuse
+You will keep your team up for a long time, despite the changes to her healing.
+Not too squishy mid-late game

Cons:
-People will focus the heck out of you just for playing Soraka in the first place.
-Squishy early game, plus heals are easily shut down with Ignite.

Introduction

I hope you don't harass the heck out of me because of this build, i know it is not the ultimate support build, but you sure support more if you got AP. In addition you harass the enemy team quite good.

Runes

I pick these runes because of durability and defence, if I can substain in my lane longer, I can support my team more. i sometimes change the Magic Resist runes with HP because of Sorakas passive, which gives me MR.

Masteries

These masteries will give me a bit of AP and alot of utility as exp, gold and mana regeneration.

I sure could pick more offence masteries, but i prefer to buy more ap in stead of mana regen.

Items

Philosophers stone is maybe the most important item early on for Soraka.
Then head over for a Mejais Soulstealer, because I am getting a lot of ***its and this will stack FAST.
As soon as you have enough, recall and buy Ionian boots of Lucidity, I buy this boots cause I need CD on Soraka, that way you can spam those Q's in teamfights and hopefully heal more then one ally.
Now I got some CD and should be able to finish of my Shurelya's Reverie, its active is a huge + when chasing or fleeing enemies.
If the game is still going, I should soon be able to build Morello's Evil Tome for even more CD, mana regeneration and AP.

This is where my build seperates a bit, if the enemy is going strongly AD, I buy Zhonyas Hourglass. If they are AP, I buy Abyssal Scepter.

After this I finish my build with the other item I didn't buy. (Shonyas Hourglass or Abyssal Scepter)

Remember to always buy wards when able to!


If you want to go even more supportish you can get Aegis of the Legion early to help your AD carry even more.

Skill Sequence

Ultys are always picked when available!

I want to harass my enemies early on, and I always lane with a champion that can poke together with me and that way we push their tower instantly. Thats why i pick Infuse.

And of course I am going the support role, so picking Astral Blessing should not need any explanation.

At least i pick starcall for my last maxing, but the game is usually over before this.

Summoner Spells

Flash is simply to get away if I need, or to help teammates in need.

Teleport is to get to my teammates in need, or for pushing lanes fast.

Farming

As I am not going full support I am not going away from the exp, I always try to stay in range of exp. But I do not last hit as this is my AD carry's job. Remember you are both support and heavy AP caster.
