Such a sorceress is Janna, who first learned magic as an orphan growing up admist the chaos that is the city-state of Zaun. Janna eked out what living she could on the streets. Life was tough and dangerous for the beautiful young girl, and she survived by her wits, and by stealing when wits weren't enough. The rampant magic that characterizes Zaun was the first and most alluring tool which Janna realized could both protect and elevate her. Janna discovered that she had an affinity for a particular type of magic - the elemental magic of air. She mastered her studies of air magic in a matter of months, almost as if she was born of it. Janna went from a street vagrant to an avatar of the air virtually overnight, stunning and surpassing those who taught her. Such a rapid ascension also changed her physical appearance, giving her an otherworldly look. Seeking to right the injustice in the world (particularly the insanity that has become the city of Zaun), Janna has brought her talents to the League. She is a voice for the regulation of magical experimentation and a supporter of the development of techmaturgy, making her an indirect ally of the city-state of Piltover and the amazing techmaturgical minds that live there. Janna is also a new favorite of the League's many fans. She is often the center of attention at functions, fan appreciation days, and other celebratory events. There is something untouchable about Janna, however, and her affections can change as quickly as the wind. Do not be captivated by Janna's beauty. Like the wind, she is one gust away from terrible destruction.

Alistar was lured from his village by the machinations of Keiran Darkwill, General Boram Darkwill's youngest son and commander of the Noxian expeditionary force. When Alistar returned, he found his village burning and his family slain. Bellowing with rage, he charged an entire regiment of Noxus' elite, slaughtering them by the hundreds. Only the intervention of some of Noxus' most skilled summoners checked Alistar's rage. Brought in chains to Noxus, Alistar spent the intervening years as a gladiator in the Fleshing, pitted in endless battle for the entertainment of Noxus' wealthy leaders. Alistar's once noble soul slowly became twisted, and he would have been driven to insanity if not for Ayelia, a young servant girl who befriended him and eventually arranged for his escape. Suddenly free, Alistar joined the newly formed League of Legends to fight as a champion, hoping to one day exact his final vengeance upon Noxus and find the girl who had renewed his hope. Initially unwilling to cater to his celebrity status as a champion, Alistar has since discovered that there is power in fame, and he has become a vocal advocate for those whom the Noxian government treads upon. He also calls to light things that the Noxian military would prefer remain hidden -- something that has made him very unpopular with Noxus' nobles. His charitable work has earned him several philanthropic awards, which serve as an interesting contrast to the rage and destruction he brings to the League of Legends. "If you intend to grab the bull by the horns as a summoner, Alistar might have something to say about that."

As was his people's way, Kegan sailed far and wide with his fellows, stealing treasures from those unlucky enough to catch their attention. To some, he was a monster; to others, just a man. One night, as they sailed through the arctic waters, strange lights danced over the frozen wastes. There was something hypnotic about them; it was something that drew them to it like moths to a flame. Trekking across the frozen waste, they came to a cave covered in ancient runes. The meaning of the runes long lost to them, Kegan led the way inside. There, inside a perfect cage of ice floated a dancing column of flame. There was no way such a thing should be burning, especially not in this place. However, its movement was as hypnotic as a siren's song, captivating and seductive. While the others stayed back, Kegan could not help but approach it while holding out his hand... That is the last thing Kegan Rodhe remembers, for now his body belongs to Brand. It is a creature of olden times, perhaps even a casualty of the Rune Wars. It is known in ancient texts as the Burning Vengeance. It is a creature of pure fiery hate that exists for no other reason than to lay waste the world of men and yordles. No one is quite sure how Brand found his way to Valoran, but he began his predations at once. Overcome by Demacian forces, he was given a choice: fight within the confines of the League or die.

Like so many conflicts, this war split families. One side proclaimed themselves as beings of perfect order and justice, fighting to unite the world under their law and strong central governance. Those that fought against them saw their kin as tyrants, creatures incapable of seeing the larger view, who would sacrifice individuality and freedom for the illusion of efficiency and safety. Morgana was one who fought against what she perceived as the tyranny of her kind, and for that she was branded ''fallen.'' Morgana was not innocent, having plumbed forgotten ways to gather forbidden might to become a powerful mistress of the black arts. This goal was driven by her obsession to defeat the general of the opposition's army - her sister, Kayle. While the two were in fact birth-sisters, Kayle struck the first blow by disowning any filial connection when Morgana refused to join her cause. Eventually, Morgana grew in power enough to not only reach, but challenge Kayle. As the time approached when the two would meet in what could be their final conflict, Morgana was suddenly summoned to Valoran. At first, Morgana made a deal with the League's summoners to fight in exchange for greater power. With the advent of Kayle into the League, Morgana now willingly fights in the League of Legends for the privilege of being able to destroy her sister again, and again, and again. She lies in wait for the day the bonds of the Institute of War no longer hold her, and on that day she plans to destroy Kayle once and for all and return home a hero.

However, Targon's peak is reserved for a special group of Rakkoran who answer to a ''higher'' calling. Members of this group, called the Solari, retire their mantles of war, choosing instead to devote their lives to reverence of the sun. According to legend, the Solari were formed by a warrior who could call the raw might of the sun down upon his enemies in combat. He claimed Mount Targon's summit, the point on Valoran closest to the sun, for his solar devotion, a tradition which generations of Solari have preserved to this day. Though they maintain their reverence, no other warrior possessed the gifts of the founder -- until Leona. Leona's parents were traditional Rakkorans, both bred for the heat of battle. To them, Leona was a problem child. She was capable of fighting as fiercely as any other -- including her childhood friend, Pantheon -- but she did not share their zeal for killing. She believed that the true worth of a soldier lay in her ability to defend and protect. When it came time for her Rite of Kor, a ceremony in which two Rakkoran teens battle to the death for the right to bear a relic-weapon, Leona refused to fight. For this, the Rakkoran leaders ordered her execution, but when they tried to strike the fatal blow, sunlight burst forth, bathing Mount Targon in light. As it faded, Leona stood unharmed and her executioners lay unconscious around her. The Solari immediately claimed Leona, demanding that her sentence be repealed. She donned the golden armor of the Solari and they bestowed upon her the sword and shield passed down from the ancient sun-warrior of legend. The Solari helped Leona focus her abilities, and when she was ready she left to join the League of Legends.

As an infant, she was found abandoned on the doorstep of an Ionian adoption house, nestled atop an ancient instrument in an exquisite case of unknown origins. She was an unusually well-behaved child, always quiet and content. Her caretakers were sure she would find a home quickly, but it soon became apparent that what they mistook for uncommon geniality was actually an inability to speak or to produce any sound whatsoever. Sona remained at the adoption house until her teens, watching in hopeless silence as prospective adopters passed her by. During this time, the caretakers sold her unusual instrument to anxious collectors, hoping to build her a trust. For a myriad of bizarre and unexpected reasons, however, it would be returned, or simply appear again outside the house. When a wealthy Demacian woman named Lestara Buvelle learned of the instrument, she immediately embarked to Ionia. When the caretakers showcased the instrument for her, she rose wordlessly and explored the house, stopping outside Sona’s room. Without hesitation, Lestara adopted her and left a generous donation for the instrument. With Lestara’s guidance, Sona discovered a deep connection with the instrument which Lestara called an “etwahl.” In her hands, it played tones which stilled or quivered the hearts of those around her. Within months, she was headlining with the mysterious etwahl for sold-out audiences.

The High Command had just put down a coup attempt from the self-proclaimed Crown Prince Raschallion, and a crack down on any form of dissent against the new government was underway. These political and social outcasts, known as the Gray Order, sought to leave their neighbors in peace as they pursued dark arcane knowledge. The leaders of this outcast society were a married couple: Gregori Hastur, the Gray Warlock, and his wife Amoline, the Shadow Witch. Together they led an exodus of magicians and other intelligentsia from Noxus, resettling their followers beyond the Great Barrier to the northern reaches of the unforgiving Voodoo Lands. Though survival was a challenge at times, the Gray Order's colony managed to thrive in a land where so many others would have failed. Years after the exodus, Gregori and Amoline had a child: [[Annie]]. Early on, Annie's parents knew there was something special about their daughter. At the age of two, Annie miraculously ensorcelled a shadow bear - a ferocious denizen of the petrified forests outside the colony - turning it into her pet. To this day she keeps her bear ''Tibbers'' by her side, often keeping him spellbound as a stuffed doll to be carried like a child's toy. The combination of Annie's lineage and the dark magic of her birthplace have given this little girl tremendous arcane power. It is this same girl who now finds herself as one of the most sought-after champions within the League of Legends - even by the city-state that would have exiled her parents had they not fled beforehand.

During her youth in Bandle City, she spent most of her time wandering alone in the forest or lost in a daydream. It wasn't that she was antisocial; the day-to-day bustle of Bandle City just couldn't compete with the vibrant world of her imagination. She saw wonder in places most people overlooked. This was how she found Pix, a fae spirit, pretending to be stuck in a birdhouse. Lulu's imagination distinguished her to Pix, and he seized the opportunity to lure her into his life. He brought her to the Glade, the enchanted home of the fae, which lay nestled in a clearing in the woods. There the rigid properties of the outside world - things like size and color - changed as frequently and whimsically as the direction of the wind. Lulu felt at home in the Glade and she lingered there with Pix, fascinated by this secret place. She quickly lost track of time. Her life in the Glade was comfortable, natural. She and Pix played fae games together, the sorts of games that she had been told were "make believe"... and she got exceedingly good at them. It caught her by surprise when she suddenly remembered that she had left a life behind in Bandle City. The Glade had a way of making everything outside seem distant and surreal. Lulu decided to revisit her former home, to share some of the lovely things she'd learned, but when she and Pix returned the world had changed. Time, she discovered, was another property that behaved differently in the Glade, and centuries had passed while she was away. Lulu sought to reconnect to the residents of the outside world, but her attempt had unfortunate results. She led all the children off to play hide and seek, temporarily changing them into flowers and animals to spice up the game, but their parents didn't appreciate her efforts. When the yordles insisted that she leave their land, she turned to a vibrant, magic place where those with unusual gifts were not just accepted but adored: the League of Legends.

Though many doubted her, Nami had the bravery and determination to take on a dangerous quest when no one else would. Now her people believe she is the Tidecaller, a chosen one destined to complete a quest essential to the survival of her entire race. The Tidecaller's sacred duty is to acquire a moonstone, a powerful object found only in the towering reaches of the surface world. Her people, the Marai, rely on the moonstone's light to ward off the terrors of the depths. However, the stone's power lasts only one hundred years. Before its light fades, the Tidecaller must journey into the Great Deep, retrieve an abyssal pearl, and carry it to the surface. There, on the night of the winter solstice of the hundredth year, the Tidecaller makes a ceremonial exchange with a landwalker bearing a moonstone. By trading the pearl for the moonstone, the Tidecaller ensures the survival of the Marai for another century. However, in Nami's time, as the hundred years drew to a close, no Tidecaller had been found. Without a chosen one to complete the quest, her people would face disaster, but the Marai waited in faith that the Tidecaller would appear. Nami refused to sit idle, insisting that without a Tidecaller to save them, someone had to act. Bravely, she decided to begin the quest herself and ventured alone into the dangerous depths. None expected her to survive, but after six days of battles with untold horrors, Nami returned with the pearl in hand. The Marai hailed her as the new Tidecaller. All that remained was for Nami to journey to the surface and complete the exchange. When Nami arrived at the surface, however, she found only an empty shore. She waited for days in a mystic cove, unsure of what to do. In all the legends of the Tidecallers, the bearer of the moonstone had never failed to arrive. Nami faced a choice. She knew the surface world only through tale and rumor, but the survival of the Marai depended upon her. Summoning the tide to bear her ashore, Nami began her search for the moonstone and became the first of her kind to explore the world above the ocean. She left her home behind, and vowed not to return until she had completed the Tidecaller's quest.

The unchecked nature of experimentation has taken its toll on the city. However, Zaun's lenient restrictions allow their researchers and inventors the leeway to push the bounds of science at an accelerated rate, for better or worse. It was under these conditions that a team of doctoral students from Zaun's College of Techmaturgy made a breakthrough in the field of intelligent steam automation. Their creation, the steam golem Blitzcrank, was developed to exercise judgment on-the-fly in order to assist with Zaun's hazardous waste reclamation process, since so often the conditions did not allow for human supervision. However, he soon began exhibiting unforeseen behaviors. Over time, the scientists were able to identify a demonstrated learning process, and Blitzcrank fast became a celebrity. As is sadly often the case though, credit for the golem's creation was scooped up by another - Professor Stanwick Pididly - though most now know the truth. In the wake of the ensuing legal maelstrom, it became evident that neither party truly had the steam golem's best interests at heart, and Blitzcrank humbly petitioned for personal autonomy. Backed by overwhelming support from the public, it took the liberal Council of Zaun only a few weeks to declare Blitzcrank a fully-independent, sentient entity. A unique being, the golem left Zaun, distressed by the controversy and feeling there was no place he could fit in. His travels led him to the one location in Valoran where unique beings have a place - the League of Legends. Fortunately, he was easily able to adapt his design to suit the rigors he would face on the Fields of Justice. Though Blitzcrank may batter anything that stands in his way, he really has a heart of gold... encased in a framework of iron... in a carapace of steel.

While her peers explored the torrent of emotions that came with adolescence, Karma meditated in the Lotus Gardens. She was convinced that the true path to enlightenment was a journey inward, to a place within the self, overlooked by most. She exuded such inner contentment that she quickly became a go-to mediator and confidante in her village. Her instructors used to say: ''That girl can not only weather a storm, but calm it.'' Karma did not live extravagantly; her parents owned a local business selling antiques in the Navori province and they often struggled to provide for themselves, though they did so with cheery optimism. Her most prized possessions were two exquisite fans taken from her family's shop. When Noxian troops invaded southern Ionia, her village was one of the first to fall. The villages who survived the assault were captured by Noxian forces. It was then that Karma found her calling. By exploiting the insecurities of the Noxian commander, she negotiated the safe release of the villages to the northern lands. She was present at the Placidium, where the Elders had considered surrender until Irelia's impassioned last stand renewed the Ionian's hope. Karma used this hope to solidify the Elders' commitment to remain defiant against the Noxian onslaught. For her devotion and charisma, Karma was made the figurehead of the Ionian resistance. She never compromised, and she shared every hardship with her people, even when it came to combat. By tapping into her inner resilience, she discovered that she could bring great force to bear against her foes on the battlefield. She modified her fans into lethal implements, and was tutored by Janna to enhance their effects. The Noxians called her, ''The Enlightened One,'' a nickname she embraced, and one which they would come to dread. She joined the League to represent Ionia in the ultimate political arena. "Her fan technique is a deadly art of grace and poise, but her truest strength lies in the hearts of those willing to die alongside her." -Irelia [spotlight_embed_url] => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWIj3IRz8DI [role] => Mage [defense_rating] => 7 [magic_rating] => 8 [attack_rating] => 1 [difficulty_rating] => 5 [damage_rating] => 2 [mobility_rating] => 1 [cc_rating] => 2 [toughness_rating] => 1 [utility_rating] => 2 [health] => 522 [health_increase] => 0 [mana] => 374 [mana_increase] => 0 [movement_speed] => 335 [armor] => 20.4 [armor_increase] => 0 [magic_resistance] => 30 [magic_resistance_increase] => 0 [attack_damage] => 53.5 [attack_damage_increase] => 0 [critical_strike] => 0 [critical_strike_increase] => 0 [health_regeneration] => 5.6 [health_regeneration_increase] => 0 [mana_regeneration] => 8.5 [mana_regeneration_increase] => 0 [attack_range] => 525 [attack_speed] => 0.625 [ability_power] => 0 [ability_power_18] => 0 [attack_speed_18] => 0.869 [health_18] => 1933 [mana_18] => 1224 [movement_speed_18] => 335 [armor_18] => 85 [magic_resistance_18] => 38.5 [attack_damage_18] => 109.6 [critical_strike_18] => 0 [health_regeneration_18] => 15 [mana_regeneration_18] => 22.1 [attack_range_18] => 525 [tip_playing_as] => *Gathering Fire rewards aggressive play.

Centuries ago, she and her kind dominated the Plague Lands, using thorns and vines to consume any animal that set foot in their territory. As the years passed, the animal population steadily died off. Food became increasingly scarce, and Zyra could only stand by helplessly as the last of her kin withered away. She thought she would perish alone, until the appearance of an unwary sorceress presented her with an opportunity for salvation. It was the first time in years Zyra had sensed a creature wander so close. Hunger drew her to the sorceress, but some other, deeper instinct compelled her. She enveloped the woman in thorns with ease, but as she savored this final meal, foreign memories invaded her thoughts. She saw great jungles of metal and stone where humans and animals thrived. Potent magic surged through her vines, and she devised an elegant but risky plan to survive. Using the woman's memories, Zyra poured her newfound magic into the creation of a human-shaped vessel. She didn't know what sort of world awaited her, but she had nothing left to lose. When Zyra opened her eyes, she was overwhelmed by the raw power ready at her fingertips. It wasn't until she noticed the shriveled remains of the plant she once was that she realized how vulnerable she had become. If this body died, there would be no network of vines to retreat through, no roots to regrow her...but she felt truly alive. She beheld the world for the first time as animals did, and a dark smile crept across her lips. She was reborn, and there was so much now within her grasp.

While the young science of techmaturgy does much to advance civilization, its research and use in Zaun pushes the boundaries of morality on a daily basis. Zaun, choked with pollution from the countless factories and laboratories that spew waste into the environment, suffers greatly. As polluted as Zaun is above-ground, its subterranean levels are far worse. All of Zaun's runoff waste pooled together in its sewers, mixing into a toxic and mysterious concoction. A single plague rat rose from this alchemical nightmare - Twitch. Unlike his lesser evolved cousins, Twitch became as sentient as anyone else... provided they were as insane as he. A seeming byproduct of the evolutionary brew that spawned him was maniacal insanity, albeit in a functional form. Twitch came to the League of Legends to represent himself ''as the only one of his kind'' on the Fields of Justice. Since then, he has found a generous benefactor in the city that gave him his evolutionary sentience - Zaun. Twitch is one of Zaun's premier champions in the League, and as such he fights for Zaun when political disputes between Valoran's city-states arise. Twitch has publically stated that his goal is to gain enough influence and materiel from his work in the League to try to recreate the process by which he gained his sentience. While many challenges lie ahead in his quest - one of the largest being his own insanity - were he to succeed, it would mean a bold and brazen step forward in the evolution of all of Runeterra. Zaun has pledged its support for Twitch in his quest, though it remains to be seen what Zaun's ulterior motives are in the matter.

She was once a celestial being, but she sacrificed her immortality and entered the world of mortals. So long as evil threatens life in Valoran, Soraka will not allow herself peace. Soraka lived for centuries in an enchanted grove. A being of the stars, she healed the wounded and sick that sought her out. One man called Warwick came to her grove and begged her to heal his wife, who lay lifeless in his arms. His despair touched Soraka's heart. Though it was too late to save his wife, she offered to help heal the pain of his loss. Unwilling to let go of his grief Warwick ran from the grove, but returned over the following days to hear Soraka's guidance. She began to grow attached to the grieving man. One day Warwick told her he had found the men who killed his wife. He believed revenge would heal his pain – and if he died fighting, he would at least find peace. Though she pleaded with him, Warwick ignored her and left the grove. The voices of the stars warned her not to follow him, but Soraka had to intervene. She stepped into the mortal world for the first time, and soon found Warwick desperately fighting a group of men. She tried to heal him, but for every wound she closed, the men inflicted two more. Soraka realized that she would have to fight to save her friend. The stars screamed in her mind, telling her not to use her powers for harm. Ignoring their warning, she struck the attackers with a flash of brilliant light. Crying out in terror and shielding their eyes from her divine radiance, they fled. Soraka's celestial form faded and the stars fell silent – for her transgression, she became mortal. She still felt the power of the stars within her, but they no longer offered her guidance. She took comfort in Warwick's safety, gently healing his wounds, but the man she had called her friend slipped a dagger between her ribs. As her blood spilled, Soraka realized he had fooled her, and everything he had done was a complicated ruse. Feeling humiliated and betrayed she called once more on the power of the stars, searing his flesh and cursing his cruelty. He retreated with an agonized howl, leaving Soraka to reflect upon her fate. Though her life had changed, she felt empowered and renewed with a singular purpose. No longer bound to the grove, Soraka set out into the mortal world, vowing to heal the wounded and protect the helpless.

Hello, I am Utopus, and I am a diamond rated support/mid laner on the north america server. I have been playing support frequently, ever since I started playing league back in 2011. Though things have undoubtedly changed since then, I do like to say that I am very comfortable in the role.

As you can see from the picture below, I do play quite a bit of Soraka, and I consider myself quite knowledgeable when it comes to playing her.

I hope you get something out of this guide. If you have additional comments, criticism, or questions, feel free to comment on this guide, or shoot me an email at mk.harris8@gmail.com. I will also be accepting screenshots of your successful games. Depending on how many screenshots I get from you guys, I may compile them and add them to an imgur album at the bottom of the guide.





Soraka is a low risk, medium-high reward champion, who is adept at laning. While her damage is lackluster, the amount of survivability she grants her team through raw healing power is threatening enough that she is often times focused down before important carries are. Her ultimate, Wish makes Soraka a menace to all her opponents. It gives her global map presence, and allows her to turn around a lost fight into a victorious one for her teammates. Her Equinox allows her to shut down many champions from bursting down her allies, making her a strong counterpick to many assassins.






Pros
+ Good CC
+ Best healer in the game
+ Global map presence
+ Complements tanks very well
+ OK Mana Costs
+ Cannot be ignored in fights

Soraka's Strengths

Soraka has a strong early game; Because the health cost of Astral Infusion is percentage based, her teammates can often take losing trades, and end up winning them because the health cost of Astral Infusion is so little during the early stages of the game. While there are some unfavorable matchups for Soraka, I personally don't believe there are any blatant counterpicks to her.



Soraka's weaknesses
While Soraka's early game is usually strong, people have learned that champions with catch potential like Blitzcrank are pesky to deal with, and can suppress her power spike until a later stage of the game.

Soraka struggles against Thresh, Rakan and Blitzcrank. These kinds of champions have medium catch potential, and can punish Soraka severely by being able to catch her if she mispositions. They all have strong forms of engage as well.

Soraka's weakness is also observed in her lack of early damage. Her ADC may find it frustrating that he is frequently the target of focus from both laners. Soraka lanes cannot push lane very quickly, and deal comparatively low damage compared to other supports.

Additionally, Soraka can often times struggle greatly against team compositions that have high mobility champions that have the ability to catch you and burst you down. For instance, champions like Kha'Zix, Twitch, or Zac can make even something as simple as warding dangerous for Soraka.
Cons
- Very Low mobility
- Susceptible to catch
- Weak roams
- Long Cooldown on ult
- Low defenses
- Low damage
- Can't Dance well



(Innate) A moderately weak passive, intended to give Soraka the ability to rescue her teammates and come to their aid. It gives a massive movespeed buff when walking towards low health allies.


(Active) This is Soraka's primary self-healing spell and escape spell. Upon damaging a champion, Soraka is healed over time, and gains movement speed when running away from champions. Landing this spell in lane will give you a large boost in health and will allow you to heal your lane partner for more without the risk of putting yourself in critical health percentages.


(Active) Your bread and butter. The sheer healing that can put out from this spell makes you a threat that your opponents cannot ignore. With cooldown reduction, the cooldown on this spell can get as low as 1.1 seconds. Soraka's healing can compete with the damage of medium damage champions like Renekton and Irelia.

In the early game, the low health cost can be used to its fullest when your ADC is constantly trading autos with the opponent ADC. Simply put, you can whittle your opponents out of lane. In fact, during the early game (and most other stages of the game), this spell is so powerful that it's usually more important that your carries take damage than you do.


(Active) A instant-speed, AoE silence/snare that often negates a lot of playmaking your opponents can do. Its usage will vary greatly from game to game. Against cooldown reliant champions - champions that are dependent on dealing a bulk of their damage in a small period of time, it is best to save Equinox for when they go in. Some examples of cooldown reliant champions are Riven, Katarina, Zed, and Ryze.

Equinox can also be used as follow-up to hard CC for its snare. It can also be used to zone opponents in narrow areas.

When placing Equinox, it's important to place the center of the field slightly in front of where your opponent wants to go.

(Active) A global ult that can be used to turn around fights anywhere on the map. While personally, I only use Wish when I see that it can be used to change a 1 for 0 for my oppponent to a 1 for 0 for my team, it can sometimes be useful to just use Wish to save an ally from dying to something like Ignite.







You want to level up Wish whenever possible to maximize the amount of team healing, and also lower its cooldown. Astral Infusion is levelled up next to reduce the cooldown on the heal, and maximize the amount healed. Starcall is levelled next to increase the duration of the heal over time and the slow duration. Equinox has been levelled last.

Some points early on may be put into Starcall over Astral Infusion if your opponent's lane has high poke.












Starting Items

An itemization path that consists of a gold income item like Ancient Coin and three Health Potions has been quite conducive to my success in my early laning phase. The healing potions give you enough sustain to survive and commit to skirmishes and all-ins that would normally be impossible when starting with just a Refillable Potion. Additionally, the gold generated from these items will allow you to smoothly transition into your power spike by getting you enough gold for your sightstone and some pink wards.

Core Items

Season 6 brought some controversial changes to warding. While rushing Sightstone is still the safest option, it isn't necessarily always needed. If you recall with less than the 800 gold required for sightstone, or don't urgently need extra vision, (e.g. you and your carry are constantly being pushed under your turret), it may be wise to consider rushing Nomad's Medallion for extra gold income before switching to Sightstone. Viable sightstone upgrades include Ruby Sightstone and eye of the oasis. Nowadays, I prefer upgrading to Ruby Sightstone because i have a heavily specialized rune page that allows for a Warmog's Armor rush and a massive level 12 power spike. If you need your powerspike slightly sooner, rushing eye of the oasis into Ardent Censer is probably slightly safer.

Due to the reduced duration of Warding Totem wards, I find that it is safest to keep that trinket until at least level 4, unless you know that it's critical to have the vision denial so that your jungler can sneak in a gank, or a dragon. If it's not obvious already, you should look to upgrade your Sweeping Lens around level 5 or 6. This is to deny your opponents vision, but also it allows you to upgrade to Oracle Lens as soon as you hit level 9 so you don't have to wait 2 minutes to make use of its powerful vision denial. Your ability to catch your opponents is a function of your vision control, and of your judgment with regards to how to react with knowledge of your opponent's position.

Try to always have 1 Vision Ward on the map at all times. Because supports are limited to a cap of 3 wards at one time, having this extra ward that doesn't expire makes it much easier for you to keep vision on critical areas.

Refillable Potion isn't always necessary, but I personally like purchasing it during the mid game. Some supports like Nami don't really use Refillable Potion well. Soraka isn't one of those people; It turns out that Soraka uses Refillable Potion excellently and the extra regeneration that this inexpensive item gives allows you to pump out several more heals in the middle of a team fight before running into critical health problems.












Utility / Defensive Items

The following items are the standard support items that you'll likely be seeing built most games with Soraka. These items tend to give defensive stats, and have a nice active ability.

Ardent Censer is a very strong pick at the moment. Most Soraka mains rush this as their first purchase following their sightstone upgrade. If you do not have the runes to accomodate the rune page I listed in my cheatsheet, I would recommend rushing this as a first purchase. The lifesteal this gives really helps your ADC spike in team fights slightly earlier.

Warmog's Armor gives Soraka a lot of health and gives her a strong out of combat health regeneration, and is now the item I rush as my first major item purchase. With my runes, masteries, and itemization ( Ionian Boots of Lucidity -> Ruby Sightstone -> Warmog's Armor), it's possible to have 2751 HP by level 12, and benefit from warmog's massive out of combat health regeneration.

Locket of the Iron Solari is an incredible item on Soraka. I buy this item every game, but I usually buy it as a 4th or 5th item. The active on Locket of the Iron Solari acts as a second Wish, in a way.

Redemption is another staple in my build. With its active, you can heal both yourself and some of your teammates for a large swath of health. I tend to purchase this item after Locket of the Iron Solari, because it has a long delay on its healing.

Zeke's Convergence is item that increases your carries' damage after you cast Wish, in addition to adding an additional slow to your kit through its passive. While I personally dislike the item, it would be inappropriate for me to not put it on the list of possible items.

Mikael's Crucible is an item that allows you to cleanse a debuff from an ally, and massively increases the overall power of your healing. This is a valuable purchase if you need to cleanse an important CC-effect such as a Dark Binding, or an Enchanted Crystal Arrow from a high priority teammate.







Level 1
Soraka has a vulnerable level 1. While her Astral Infusion allows her and her carry to very soundly win trades, Soraka and her team are often susceptible to invades and early skirmishes, since Astral Infusion doesn't help win pre-minion spawn team fights as decisively as the pick potential from something like a Rocket Grab, Death Sentence, or Dark Binding.

Because your solo laners tend to have power spikes very early in the game, junglers prefer to start on the jungle camp closest to their duo lane, so they can clear their buffs, and then quickly transition to gank a solo lane. This means that it is important for you to place defensive wards to detect for any early jungle invades and react accordingly. Once your jungler's monster spawns at 1:40, help him leash by throwing down a Starcall and a couple autoattacks. If you jungler starts top side, cast a Starcall or two and wait until the ~1:50 mark to show in lane. You'll make your opponents believe that your jungler started bot side, which will make ganks for your jungler easier when he ganks from the bot side of the map when he hits level 3.

Below are some common places for me to ward depending on the side i'm on. While you don't always have to ward in the spots highlighted below, they should be able to cover most of the entrances to your jungle.
For Blue Side:
For Red Side:


Once you get to lane, you should be trying your hardest to hit level 2 before your opponent. When playing more CC-heavy supports like Leona and Thresh, I would often secure first blood from this level 2 cheese when I was in gold and low platinum. The extra spell, damage, and defenses granted from that level can easily convert itself into a kill.

Because of this, getting level 2 as quickly as possible is of utmost importance. Soraka doesn't have a particularly strong level 2 power spike, so that extra level is mainly there to boost your defenses. Pushing and beating your opponents to level 2 can make it safer for you in lane, especially since it's so early in the game that junglers are usually busy clearing their first buffs and cannot punish your aggressive play. It takes the first whole minion wave and 3 melee minions to hit level 2, so for those first two waves, if I'm not repositioning myself to avoid poke, I'm always autoattacking high health minions. In certain lanes, the level 2 rush can be so critical for your safety that as much as 2 CS can be given up for this safety.

Level 2-5

In the early game, you are looking to make advantageous trades for you & your carry. Generally, the way to play lane correctly with a Soraka is that your ADC should be looking to constantly be in combat with your opponent lane, yet never committing to your opponents all-in unless there already exists a large health differential between the ADC and the opponent lane. You'll find that doing this will force your opponents out of lane to the point where you can deny them CS and experience by forcing early / undesirable recalls.

Also, you'll find that in general, you'll win a trade if your ADC takes the damage in the trade, and you'll lose the trade if you end up getting focused. While there are things that can swing trades more or less in your favor (e.g. large minion waves), i've included a general check-list below to help you gauge the quality of trading done in your lane.

Here's an example of a common mistake that a lot of Soraka players make.

In the picture above, I try to position myself in such a way that the caster minions would block any hooks that Blitzcrank shoots. The instant Blitzcrank walked past our first caster minion, I should have ran back to tower so the incoming new minion wave would block hooks for me and keep me safe. However, I instead tried to stay behind Miss Fortune. She, wanting to dodge Blitzcrank hooks, tried to position funny by moving such that a caster minion was always between her and Blitzcrank. Because I didn't run back to tower, Miss Fortune felt forced to stay in lane, at which point Blitzcrank could just Power Fist + Rocket Grab me at point blank range and kill me.

In the GIF, I was positioned well enough so that I was never in any risk of being harassed by Ezreal, but both Miss Fortune and I failed in that she didn't punish Blitzcrank for walking past his minion line, and I failed in that I didn't play safer and reduce the chances that i'd be picked off by a hook.


Level 6

You hit a power spike once you hit level 6. While champions like Thresh or Morgana hit combat power spikes with The Box and Soul Shackles respectively, Soraka's power spike is a utility power spike, since Wish allows you to turn around fights in other lanes.

While Wish can be used for clutch heals in an all-in situation in bot lane, ideally, the spell should be saved for emergencies in other lanes. I think that Wish is used best when you can change around a fight where your opponent will kill you ally to a fight where your ally kills your opponent. Ultimately, you need to assess each critical situation and see if it's worth the long cooldown of Wish to save that teammate. Evaluate the speed of the game - if tons of plays are happening around the map, it may be better to let an ally that got caught out die to an ignite so that you can instead use your Wish in a clutch team fight at some later point in time. Alternatively, if the game is largely a standstill, it may definitely be worth it to just save an ally with Wish.


The Rules of Trading

I've compiled a list of rules that I've learned to follow over my ranked climb last season. Most of these should be obvious, but hopefully some of these may be of use to you.

  • If a trade isn't going well for you, try to disengage as quickly as possible
  • If a trade is going well for you, try and push the envelope as much as possible, while maintaining fluidity between you and your ADC. If your ADC is backing off from a trade, you back off with him. If your ADC is chasing your opponents, you chase with him. You want to keep a steady buffer distance between you and your ADC.
  • Always try to pop a potion at the start of an extended trade, or if you are below 60% health. This can make a life or death difference in all-in exchanges.
  • Never, EVER take free damage. If you're taking too much free damage, learn to stand farther back or position yourself in such a way that your opponent can be easily punished by your ADC if he tries to poke you. A good Soraka player will never give her opponents the chance to get damage down on her.
  • Pay attention to the health of your own minions. You can learn a lot about your opponents by their behavior around low health minions - both yours, and theirs. If your opponents play defensively (such that they position to not take poke) when you have low health minions, and they play aggressively when there are no low health minions to last hit, then you can use that to your advantage to set up ganks with your jungler. Additionally, a change in this kind of behavior indicates that something is abnormal - your opponents might be preparing for their jungler to gank you, or perhaps they think that your jungler is nearby. These kinds of details are paramount to communicate with your team.
  • It is important for you to keep track of your opponent's cooldowns. If a Blitzcrank early on misses his Rocket Grab, you know that you have a 0% chance of getting hooked for the next 13-15 seconds. Punish him by trying to trade during this time, disengaging well before his Rocket Grab comes off cooldown.
  • In fights to the death, I try to gauge the amount of damage my opponents do. If my opponent lane has a very low damage team, like Sivir + Alistar, then it can be worth it to just stand behind your ADC and heal for him. If your opponents have a high damage lane like Lucian + Thresh, you won't be able to keep sustaining the amount of damage that that lane can put out, so it may be worth it to try to run closer to your ADC in an attempt to juggle aggro from your opponents. While you'd be getting focused, the extra couple of free auto attacks that your carry can put out may be enough for him to win the all-in.
  • Starcall is most effectively used when
      1. Your opponents are clumped up in a trade
      2. You have more than 30% mana, and you need to regenerate some health.
      3. You have a strong minion wave in front of you to block the bulk of skillshots your opponents will throw at you.
      4. Your jungler is looking to tower dive and you want to take the first part of the tower aggro
      5. You want to check brushed area for champions




Laning Phase, Blue side Ward Map

o - Warding Totem & early game ward placements before you get Sightstone.

o - Placements for Sightstone wards in the early game.

o - Good places to put Vision Wards


You'll only have your Warding Totem for your early levels, so don't see too many spots for those. You have to choose between having river vision or lane vision early on. Placing your Warding Totem ward in river will allow your lane to have increased safety from jungle ganks, while conceding brush control. If you find your lane is pushing hard, it'd do you good to ward this as a safety measure.

If you place your Warding Totem ward in lane, you'll have more vision control over your opponents far brush. This can be critical in dodging skillshots like Death Sentence and Rocket Grab.

The exact placements of your Vision Wards depends on your current success in the game. If you are slightly behind/even, it might do you good to make the most out of your Vision Wards by placing them in the tri brush near your lane, or to place them in the brush behind your jungler's red buff - places that are really safe for you to ward, and really difficult for your opponents to clear. In contrast, if you are ahead in your lane, it may do you good to place your Vision Wards in more aggressive places, like the death brush in the bottom side of the river, or near the dragon pit. While these are easier for your opponents to clear these wards, placing your pinks in river will allow you to control vision near the dragon area much more effectively; You can use this vision control to catch an opponent, or force a dragon fight that may end up in your favor.

When VERY ahead

o - Possible Sightstone warding locations

o - Possible Vision Ward locations

When you're tied, or very ahead, your goal is try and get as much information of your opponent's movements. More importantly, you want to get intel of your opponent's location NEAR AN ACTIVE OBJECTIVE. For example, if you JUST took dragon, then you probably don't need to have many wards near that area since there isn't much for your opponent to take near that area for another 5 minutes. You'd be better off rotating to the baron side of the map and deep warding there.

Consequently, if both baron and dragon are active objectives that can be taken, it might be good to have ward coverage of both areas. Keep in mind that Towers count as active objectives too. If you plan on taking a tower, it may do you good to ward areas around that tower so as to see how many opponents at a given time are close enough to that tower to defend it against an organized push.

As a general rule of thumb the deeper your ward coverage extends, the more information you can get on your opponent's location. However, it can be risky trying to place very deep Sightstone wards in your opponents jungle without teammates being nearby, or you already having vision of the area near the area you're trying to ward.

While it is important to have deep wards of your opponents jungle, you may need to place tactical wards too. Tactical wards are wards that you use to cover blind spots in an area close to you, if you know a team fight is about to happen. For example, placing tactical wards is critical when you are playing against a team composition that can flank well, like Fiddlesticks (with his Crowstorm), or against high mobility assassins that are looking to pick off a carry, like LeBlanc or Rengar.

When Behind

o - Possible Sightstone warding locations

o - Possible Vision Ward locations

When you are behind, it is important for you to get as knowledge of your opponent's location, while also being sure not to get caught out. When you are behind, you are looking to try and ward your own jungle. It's important to try and stratify your warding, and ward areas where current objectives may be contested. For example, if you're at the 35:00 mark, and your opponents have a lead on you, but they are not sieging your inhibitor turrets, they will probably be looking to get baron to make their sieges easier. To get vision of baron, it's safest for you & an escort to first ward the two brushes near the wolves area, and then place a ward over the blue buff wall, into river.

Warding is a very complex subject, with intricacies that change from division to division.



Soraka's team fight presence is really strong, especially after she gets some cooldown reduction items. As my guide is titled, the purpose of Soraka is to be a combat medic. You'll basically want to be healing the most desirable targets as fast as you can with Astral Infusion and Wish, helping your teammates kite with Starcall's slow, and throwing a wrench in your opponents plans with a well timed Equinox.

You want to be positioned as closely to your team as possible without being in real risk of getting jumped on and focused.


Notice how i'm positioned. My opponents would have to plow straight through Ezreal to get to me. While this is normally a fine thing to do (since Ezreal is squishy), this was an attempt at trapping out one of the opponents and killing them before they could get back to their turret. While I am a little exposed, my team is close enough to converge on my opponents quickly such that i'm not in any danger.





In this picture, my Trundle is too far out of position. Although I want to, I cannot run back to heal him, lest I get Leap Striked by Jax and die needlessly. At this point, it is best for me to continue running back, and saving my cooldowns for helping out Ezreal.


I'm positioned close enough to my teammates to be able to heal them while Astral Infusion is off cooldown, but i'm still positioned safely enough; Look at my opponents, and ask, "What could possibly get to me?" My opponent's ADC isn't going to be joining the fight for a little while, so my opponents likely don't have enough damage per second to take down both the Lee Sin and the Vayne with the combined defenses from Lux and me, since Morgana's ultimate is down.


In addition to healing her allies, Soraka adds additional utility to her team through her Equinox. Equinox can be used for either zone control, or for disruption. It largely depends on your opponents team composition, and the context of the team fight that determines which use of Equinox is more desirable.

As you can see below, I used this Equinox as a way to zone my opponents. My opponents team is getting flanked by Nasus so they would like to push forward into my back line ( Vayne, Lux) so that the carries can be killed and the damage output of my team would be stifled, however my Equinox forces my opponents to path awkwardly to avoid my snare, thus buying my teammates enough time to reposition.

Other times, you will need to save your Equinox to disrupt your opponents. In this example below, my opponent Rammus just Powerballed into my Jinx. I know that puncturing taunt will soon follow, and if that happens, then my Jinx will get chain CC'ed, focused, and killed. I use Equinox immediately after Rammus hits jinx with Powerball so the puncturing taunt won't immediately follow. Conveniently, Thresh was also hit with the Equinox, thereby buying jinx enough time to escape with her summoner spells.

A perhaps more obvious example of a distruption Equinox is in the picture below. Zilean mispositions and gives Katarina the chance to quickly assassinate him and Shunpo out, towards the safety of her turret. However, I save my Equinox for until she starts her channel of Death Lotus so that I can interrupt it, preventing her from assassinating Zilean. Champions that are heavily ability reliant like Zed, Katarina, and Riven - to name a few, can really get messed up with a distruption Equinox.




Supporting requires fewer mechanics than most other champions; This means that it is easier for you to be looking elsewhere on the map, and evaluating where plays can be made. Knowledge of objectives and creep wave manipulation make it quite easy to shot call for your team. Your ability to catch your opponents makes you have a terrifyingly large map presence. While mastering Soraka's team fight mechanics is critical, the best way to carry as a support role is to have as much map presence as you can.

Here is a list of objectives that you can control to get an edge over your opponents, in order from most important to least important. The list isn't universally accurate, but it should give you a good idea of the relative value of each of these objectives.
  • Nexus turrets
  • Inhib tower + Inhibitor
  • Baron
  • Inhibitor Turret
  • Exposed Inhibitor
  • Vision Denial
  • Vision
  • Large Forward pushing minion wave

If you were to put me in a sandbox environment, where I could choose any objective and take it without negative repercussions, I would start at the top of this list - at nexus turrets, and then work my way down. Realistically, though, teams don't simply give away their nexus turrets. In fact, that might be the most difficult objective to get, in the same what that it'd be difficult to waltz over to baron and take it freely without first catching a carry and killing them. Because Soraka is adept at facilitating sieges, and excels at assisting allies in team fights, this is the list of the reward you get from controlling an objective that you can while weighing in risk.
  • Vision
  • Vision Denial
  • Inhibitor
  • Baron
  • Inhibitor Turrets
  • Nexus Turrets
  • Large Slow Pushing Side minion wave*
  • Tower

The list will vary a bit from team to team. For example, if your team composition is good at sieging turrets (e.g. they have poor wave clear, you have a Tristana), taking an inhibitor turret may be easier and therefore less risky than a baron. Conversely, if your team composition prefers team fighting (e.g. your opponents can defend towers easily, you have a Vayne), then tower sieging will be more risky than baron.

Try to get the most out of any advantage you get over your opponents. Utilize both vision and vision control to look for windows of opportunity in which you can gain an objective. Whenever you find yourself having a numbers advantage over your opponents, it does you good to use that to your advantage. For example, whenever you kill an opponent, you should always look at your minimap and try to force an objective. Additionally, if you find that a solo lane player has Teleport ed to your lane, you should be advising the solo lane to either match his Teleport, or push his minion wave into tower so as to both deny the opponent CS as well as grant your team gold as well as map pressure.

Wave control is heavily important in the laning phase, and a lot of players (certainly players below plat level play) don't fully understand what is going on.

During the early game, wave control can be used for various things, including setting up ganks, dives, preventing trades, forcing winning trades, rotations to dragon, and alleviating pressure from solo lanes by creating map pressure on the bottom side of the map. While it is critical to understand minion waves, it is difficult to cover all bases (or else someone would have done it already). Below, I've tried to teach you guys through example of some ways you can evaluate the state of your minion wave, and shotcall appropriately.

Freezing your minion wave
Advantages for Freezing:
  • Safety from jungle ganks
  • More control of minion wave
  • If winning, you are able to zone opponents from CS
  • If losing, you can farm more safely
  • More opportunities for allied jungler ganks
Risks of freezing:
  • More susceptible to tower dives depending on size of minion wave
  • Vulnerable versus long range poke
  • Vulnerable to lane ganks
  • Penalty (in CS, experience) if you need to rotate to your bot side jungle, mid, or dragon.

How to freeze:If left entirely alone, a minion wave with the higher number of caster minions will tend to push forward. For example, if your minion wave has 3 caster & melee minions, and your opponent minion wave has 4 caster minions and 3 melee minions, the minion wave will almost certainly push towards your tower. The rate at which this minion wave will push to your tower depends on the rate at which your opponent ADC kills your caster minions compared to your own ADC. This means that if you want the wave to push into your tower, you or your ADC should be autoattacking caster minions less frequently than your opponents (assuming both laners deal approximately the same amount of damage); If you want your lane to stay neutral (e.g. your opponents can poke you easily under tower), you want to be autoattacking minions as frequently as your opponent; Lastly, if you want your lane to push to your opponents side (e.g. safety in trades, you want to set up a dive, you don't want your opponents to recall), then you want to be autoattacking the minions more frequently than your opponent. This also means that a carry with AoE damage like Jinx can push her minion wave into your tower faster than say, a Vayne could.

Another factor that is important for freezes is the timing of your minion wave/your opponent minion wave. Because freezes vary so much depending on the rate at which your opponent's lane can push, and when your minions get pushed with respect to your reinforcement minion wave, it's important to establish the bounds for the amount of time your minion wave can freeze.


Because the opponent minion wave was pushed into our turret by the time our melee minions reached our turret, our minions spent more time attacking the minions before continuing forward into lane, whereas the opponent's minion wave did not. This means that the wave would be frozen right outside of range of our tower. Moreover, the melee minions took some damage from the leftover opponent minion wave, which means that the wave will likely (80% chance) push into my turret again by itself. Based on the health of both minion waves and the items and levels Lucian has in this example, starting when the minions in the first minion wave (in the GIF) die, the lower bound for the amount of time that my minion wave can stay alive before pushing into turret is about 12 seconds and the upper bound is around 25 seconds. This is the window of time where Lucian wants to be in bot lane, autoattacking minions and getting gold, and also the window of time where it is easiest the jungler to gank the Lucian.

When a wave is frozen, that means that it is easy for the jungler to gank the lane that is further pushed. However, most players misunderstand this to mean that once you have successfully frozen your lane, you should call your jungler over to gank; This is too late. What the more successful player does, is call his jungler over to gank right at the moment he knows that his minion wave will freeze. This wastes the least amount of time for your jungler because your opponent ADC will be kind of 'forced' to stay in lane to grab that CS, and also because it'll be super obvious if your opponents know your jungler is there.


Pushing your minion wave
Advantages to Pushing minion wave
  • Easier rotations to neutral objectives, jungle, and mid
  • Exert more map pressure
  • Easier tower dives
  • Easier ganks for junglers through lanes
  • Opponent cannot easily trade because of large minion wave
  • Easier to poke opponents under tower
  • Sometimes allows good opportunities to recall
Cons to Pushing minion wave
  • Exposes one to TP gank / jungle gank
  • Harder to control minion wave
  • Depending on your carry, it may be difficult to break your opponent's freeze
  • Melee supports ( Alistar, Trundle, Leona e.g.) lose kill pressure if lane gets frozen to your opponents tower.
  • Carry is more exposed against pick supports like Alistar or Thresh.

How to push minion wave: Pushing your minion wave correctly is inherently harder to do than freezing a minion wave, because you have less control over your minion wave which makes it less predictable. Simply put, your opponent has more options: He can choose to keep the lane frozen in lane by matching your autoattacks on minions, or choose to not match your autoattacks on minions and instead freeze the lane closer to his tower, granting him safety from all-ins and jungler ganks.

The way to correctly break an oppponent's freeze is to kill your opponents minion wave, and push your wave into tower such that they die well before the next opponent minion wave appears.
Pop quiz!!!

Both Corki and Lucian have farmed up and are looking to recall. There are many objectives to be taken like dragon and also mid tower or bot tower.
Is the bolded statement below true?
In this GIF, Corki successfully manipulates the wave such that recalls at a smart time. Corki had built up such a large caster minion wave, that Lucian would not be able to successfully freeze the minion wave successfully; He would tank too much damage from caster minions, and by the time Corki got back, he would lose all of his presence because he wouldn't be able to trade with corki due to his health / item differential, and he would be poked under tower with Missile Barrage.
Answer





In the gif above, the opponent Lucian has built up a massive minion wave. Because he has the backup of his caster minions, he is looking to aggressively trade. Additionally, this minion wave that he has built up is so large that it is impractical for us ( Braum and Kalista) to freeze it. When a wave is pushed up to tower, it is common for supports to ward the brush in river that's close to bot lane. Because of this, I told Aatrox to gank bot lane through tri brush well before the minion wave hit tower.

This is important. I did not tell Aatrox to gank once my opponents minion wave was pushed towards my tower, I told him 30 seconds beforehand, so that he could walk to bot lane as soon as the opponent minion wave started pushing towards my tower, thereby reducing the window of time my opponents have to ward.




With Soraka's dynamic kit, it is no surprise that she works well with many champions. For laning, she synergizes well with people who deal enough sustained damage that they can severely punish opponents for focusing Soraka instead of them. Some examples of this are Kalista, Lucian, Draven, and Vayne, although there are many other carries that synergize well with Soraka. Champions that have low (in relativity) sustained damage, like Caitlyn or Sivir will not work as well with Soraka.

Compositions that mutually synergize with Soraka are compositions that have a strong initiate, a semi-tanky front line, with some CC. This means that champions like Jarvan IV, Vi, Amumu, Shen, Zac and Gnar, to name a few, synergize well with Soraka. It is important to note that all the champions I mentioned are tanky; Having a top laner, and/or a jungler itemize a tanky build path will greatly improve your chances of success in team fights. In addition to this, champions with good sustain, like Vladimir and Aatrox benefit greatly from the extra healing that Soraka can do.





There are two types of compositions that give Soraka a little bit of trouble throughout the game.

The mechanic that hinders one's success as Soraka the most, is catch potential. This is why Blitzcrank is a commonly seen counterpick to Soraka: It is very easy to catch her or her teammates out. However, most assassins tend to excel at catching out Soraka. Champions like LeBlanc, Rengar, and Lee Sin come to mind, as their strong burst and high mobility make even simple tasks like warding a dangerous endeavor. In team fights, it is important that you stay close to high priority targets so they cannot get instakilled by the assassins.

The second mechanic that Sorakas struggle with is long range champions. In team fights, long range AoE champions like Xerath, Gangplank, Miss Fortune, and Ziggs can give Soraka trouble in team fights, because it is difficult for you to position safely while continuing to heal your teammates. It is very easy get executed by a long range spell like Cannon Barrage or Mega Inferno Bomb. Additionally, their AoE spells make it so that there's no one focus target, and almost everyone on your team will need heals
