Everfrost Soraka

By Cimcia484
Everfrost Soraka
Everfrost SorakaEverfrost Warmogs Soraka is a building path for Soraka that not many people seem to be using. I made this guide, because i was surprised this build remains so unnoticed by most Soraka players. So why would you play Everfrost Soraka? What are the pros/cons of this build compared to Moonstone or Shurelya's?

Pros:
Everfrost + Warmogs + Shard of True Ice give you the total of 1125 bonus Health, which makes Soraka much tankier compared to other builds and activates Warmogs passive very early in the game. The reason why Warmogs isn't used as a 2nd item in Moonstone/Shurelya's builds is that they both give Soraka 200 Health each instead of 250 like Everfrost. You can make up for it with Relic Shield start, but that makes your early game much more passive compared to Spellthief's Edge start with bonus Ap/Mana Regen and you don't actually benefit from Relic shield's bonus Health Regen as Soraka has the lowest Health Regen in the entire game of 2.5-11 Health per 5sec. That is why in Moonstone builds Warmogs is usually built after Redemption as 3rd+ item. Warmogs lets you cast your W on cooldown without sacrificing your Health, which makes your Healing scyrocket the moment you buy it. But of course Warmogs is not the only reason why you would pick Everfrost. Everfrost roots enemies in place for 1.5 seconds and Soraka's E duration just so happens to also be 1.5 seconds, which means that on 30 seconds cooldown (Everfrost cooldown) you can create an AOE Silence + Root for 1.5 seconds with a guarantee to also hit your second E for another 1-2 seconds Root depending on your E rank. This combo is a gamechanger for Soraka. This is an AOE 30 seconds cooldown Malzahar ult, but you don't need to channel it. The only downside is you need to hit the combo, but it has a surprisingly long range and enemies can't dodge it with dashes, because your E Silence is instant.

Cons:
If it is so good why doesn't everyone build it? First off you sacrifice a little bit of what Soraka is best at - her healing. You still heal a lot, even more than Moonstone Soraka outside of combat, but after 5 seconds during combat Everfrost can't compete with the healing from Moonstone. If you are able to hit Q before your every W during those teamfights you aren't going to suffer 10% of your max Health each time you heal someone. In fact building Shurelya's lets you position yourself better and hit those Qs more consistantly. Shurelya's also sacrifices Moonstone healing, but instead of Everfrost's crowd control, it grants Soraka and her allies a little bit more mobility, which is a huge factor in League of Legends. The best example of this is nearly every champion using Flash as their Summoner Spell. The biggest downside of Everfrost + Warmogs start is it's Cost. Both Moonstone and Shurelya's Cost 2500 Gold and the following items in those builds Cost around 2300 Gold. Everfrost costs 3200 Gold and Warmogs Costs 3000 Gold. What it means in practice is Everfrost Soraka gets her powerspikes later - around 14-18 minutes, when she completes Everfrost and 22-28 minutes, when she completes Warmog's Armor compared to 12-16 minute for Moonstone/Shurelya's and 20-24 minute for an item like Ardent Censer/Redemption. In high elo games are generally shorter and a consistant 2-3 minute delay on such big powerspikes every game could set you back a little bit. High elo players also have much better positioning, which lets Soraka survive despite being very squishy without all that bonus Health from Warmog's Armor.
