Soraka is a very good healer and very usefull in team fights.
I use pure Ability Power(AP) build because ap really matters on soraka.
With this build you can heal constantly your team and win a lot of games!

I use a


Classic AP masterie tree with points in ghost and flash.
Cd,ap and mana regen for low lvls is a must.

Guide Top


Greater Seal of Replenishment x9 for early and late game mana regen.
x9 more ap = better heal!
x9 cause cd is needed for faster heals!
x3 as i said more ap = better heal!

Guide Top


My build focus mainly on ap.
I start with because movement is a must for soraka, I then go in cause more speed means less time to go for an ally heal + good escape.( Alternative: you can buy for faster healing.)
Then I aim in pure AP build. Start building your and then go to ,because Hourglass boost your ap and can save you from death, and if the game hasn't finished yet go to more because>>More Ap is Better HEAL!
( Alternative: you can also start with to grow with assists but this isnt 100% valuable {Use it ONLY if your team is going well} and then you can go on and continue to straight AP ). Another option is to buy if their team has a lot of CC, in order to be able to stay back and heal without getting stunned,fear,etc..(Also can save you from death, use it + + .

5.You can save your team from enemies AoE spells with your ! (e.g: ultimate)

Summoner Spells

Flash is really good for Soraka for two reasons:
1.Because if you get in trouble you can always flash in wall and get out with
2.You can faster reach your team for a heal

Ghost is for reaching your team fast enough to heal and for saving your own life.
Alternative Spells:
Cause you have a 3rd heal that can really help your team in strong fights.You can combine it with .

Thnx Adonikam for these usefull gathered tips.

1. To heal yourself with your second skill use Alt+W, this prevents you from accidently targeting a minion (You'd be surprised how often this happens)
2. On the left side of the screen in-game you can see character portraits of your team mates. If you want to heal someone close to you click W and then his portrait. Again this saves you from accidentally targeting a minion. Also works for E spell.
3. It is a good idea to keep an eye on the portraits on the left to know when the best time to use your ultimate is.
4. Not sure of the range of your Q spell? Hover your mouse over the spell and you will see a radius of it's range.

Early Game
Go with a lane partner bottom or top and always heal your ally and yourself and try to always cast your E when is not in cd to yourself for constantly mana regen and constantly healing. Use your on enemies casters knowing that you are up to mana.
Mid Game
After your lvl 6 always look in your map for an allies if they need heal with your if you are far and with your if you are near to them. Always go in team fights, NEVER alone . When you are in team fights stay in back of your team and continue heal on the ones who needed (carries,tanks,etc..) and try to silence some casters and always saving your team with healing.
Late Game

If the game is still going on, always keep in mind that your heal is important to your CARRY as he do the MOST dmg and can harras easily the enemy team.
