Introduction

Wow, you're really doing this, huh? Soraka mid is an ancient art passed down generations of hard working theorycrafters just to have been presented to me and me only. But I suppose EL FLAMBO (formerly known as brenda) of the OCE server can SPARE you with a few tips on how to wrangle this beautifully awkward concept of Soraka mid.


Guide Top

Authenticity

I know what you're thinking; "who's this baby OCE player thinkin he runs stuff round these parts? how do we even KNOW Soraka mid is good?"

First of all, I'M THE SHERIFF.

Secondly, if there's anything a Soraka mid is, they are someone who is confident in their word. And if my word is I'm a DAMN GOOD SORAKA MID then you BETTER BELIEVE IT.

Fun fact: I was gonna show you my unsuccessful Soraka mid games, but there are none.


Guide Top

Mentality

Before learning ANYTHING about my precious tactic, you must first have the mentality of a Soraka mid.

What do you think of when you hear the name "Soraka"? Someone who's compassionate? Caring? Courteous? Just? Well, yeah, that's about right. IF YOU'RE A BABY *** SORAKA SUPPORT. SORAKA MIDS ARE EMOTIONLESS, HATEFUL, SELFISH, CHAOTIC FORCES OF MASS DESTRUCTION THAT YOU SHOULD DARE NOT CROSS. You roam? TAX THEIR LANE. Killed an enemy? FLEX YOUR MASTERY. Stole an ally's CS by accident? CLAIM IT WAS COMPLETELY INTENTIONAL AND THAT YOU ALSO ****ED THEIR MOTHER. Accidentally forgot to ult to save an ally? SAY THAT YOU DID IT ON PURPOSE SO YOU CAN TAKE BLUE BUFF WITH MORE HEALTH.

Soraka mids TAKE NO PRISONERS and you better damn well start acting like it. We have an IQ of 7000 on average, outliers being you FOOLS who think it'll be EASY to pick this up.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Alright, positives.+Great laning against mages
+Decent waveclear
+So underground ya GRANDPA won't know this matchup
+Scales from a mid game damage dealer to a late game mega utility machine
+Enables you to FLEX on fools
+INSTANT AOE silence with decent range and damage
+Lets you be the JERK youve secretly always wanted to be as a Soraka support

Now, negatives.-If you're as good as me? There's none
-But assuming you're not, she realistically has NOTHING that others can't do except for crazy heals, in which you should just be playing her as support
-Obscenely high IQ required to make full use of her
-**** all mobility
-Requires u to swagg on kiddies unconditionally

Ranked Play


I'm assuming this chapter insinuates what to do when playing Soraka mid in ranked/when to play her. Well, first thing's first, consider muting your team. I guarantee they will ridicule you. Ice those fools, show them who's boss.

As for when to pick her, take a look at the easy matchup's above. If they have picked those characters and you feeling like the mentality mentioned above, lock in this banana slinging animal and prepare to ICE some fools. Also, consider it if running a hypercarry comp (Kog, Vayne, etc.)


Guide Top

Summoner Spells


Generically, or in blind pick, you're gonna wanna go Ghost + Flash. Flash is mandatory, obviously, but Ghost is interchangeable with Exhaust, Barrier, Cleanse, or even Ignite. It's a counterpick thing.

Skill Sequence

I don't CARE if your jungler flames you, DON'T TAKE YOUR W UNTIL LEVEL 13. MAKE SURE THEY KNOW YOU WON'T HAVE IT UNTIL THEN. THEY WANT HEALS? GO TO THE FOUNTAIN.


Guide Top

Items

If you think there are any core items for Soraka, you're wrong. Natural mana regen, low costs, easy sustain, all you REALLY need is high AP. Anything that gets you there is what you want, and any kind of CDR and mana is good, but not mandatory (although hard to avoid nowadays). All of the situational items listed above are just as viable as the ones in the core build. You must feel Soraka mid and build accordingly - there is no set formula.


Guide Top

Farming


Early on, you gotta be a MASTER of last hitting as Soraka. Luckily for me, I've been practicing by 'ACCIDENTALLY' stealing my ADC's CS in bot lane for years now. As for you? You gotta just feel the motion of the banana. If you manage to nab a NLR early, sorcerer minions are usually a Starcall and AA away from being turned into JUICY gold. When you get a Luden's, it usually handles them in one Starcall. Don't be afraid to use your Q JUST for CS'ing, it has such a small cost.


Guide Top

[UPDATE 7.13]

Items for Soraka Midâ„¢ (trademarked property of EL FLAMBO Corp.) haven't changed at all really in the recent patches. I will be updating matchups with new information where appropriate.

Summary

All in all, everything you need to know to get you started has been said. Just know that if an ally EVER asks you for mana, you must treat them with silence for the entire game - they must know how disrespectful of them it is to remind us of our past.

Now what the hell are you still doin in my presence? Get OUT of my SIGHT.
