I will use this build on my next game (Soraka main here hifive xD) . I can see where you are going with the guardian angel ..and it's true . VS a good team , I will be the one focused. Not the adc , because I can keep alive the adc..imagine keeping alive a Vayne the entire teamfight..ofc they would focus the s*** out of soraka xD. If I can keep the carries alive enough , even if they try to kill me , with GA I can come alive and heal my team again. I will try this and I promise I will come back to tell my experience :D . Thank you for taking your time to write this !

This is a very poorly made guide.

As far as I'm concerned, there's a complete disregard for formatting. You did say this was your first guide right? Why not look at the guide help, and try using some of the templates there? Because right now, it just feels sloppy and poorly executed ( Camille would have you killed by now)). In the future, at the least try in-text references. Double brackets; it's that easy ( Kled, Ardent Censer, etc).

Also, I get that you aren't serious over Guardian Angel, but really? The armor is good and all, but you are wasting 1400 gold on an item that doesn't help you. Sure, the passive is good, but what are you going to do once you are revived? Wish your dead team in hopes of healing them? You are weak without them, making it a practically inefficient item.

Finally, as a support play myself, this build devalues the importance of assisting your team. Why is Eye of the Watchers so late in the build? It should be one of the first items you buy, since the vision is crucial for your team. Ardent Censer is extremely important too, since your heals are the perfect fit.

Overall, not a good guide. I personally downvoted.

Hello,thanks for the feedback.I really am very sad that you said that this is a poorly made guide,just because it doesn't have some pictures in it,I will learn how to use them though in later date.
I am serious about Guardian Angel,have you ever tried it? I do not believe so.The thing is that Guardian Angel works in teamfights like this - if you spam W all the time and you are low on HP a champion likeZED will look for a kill,sometimes much HP is not enough and while you die near teammates you can just redemption get up and yes,use wish.I haven't played a single game that this build doesn't work.I think that bad position forgiveness is crucial and is game changing.
I doubt you have read my guide,I believe you just got bored in the way and just disagree with a few things.I told you,you can improvise..."what do I need?" This is a personal prefference,You can take Eye of the Watcher much more earlier just as I do in some games,I don't see a problem there.
Finally I'd like to know how this is not a good guide,is it because of the lack of pictures only?

I have read through your guide, otherwise, I don't think I could have given it a fair review. It's not just the lack of pictures, it's the fact that Guardian Angel does not synergize with Soraka and even then, it promotes terrible positioning (because you are just gonna get revived anyways...so what's the problem?).

As a support, you are a very low kill threat. Period. A Zed would find it more worth while to assassinate a high damage dealer (like Tristana) versus assassinating a support. Therefore, by the time you are being focused, there is nobody else around to help you. You will end up reviving (or even worse, reviving in the middle of a teamfight) and have nobody there to back you up.

Finally, I understand what you mean by the fact that "you can improvise," but if we are being honest with ourselves, there are some people out there that just look at the build and don't read the guide. If I was a player starting to use Soraka and use this build, I would end up not playing her to her fullest potential and wasting my time.

In the end, both the information and the formatting are not beginner-friendly. Sure, an experienced Soraka play can use this build, but I feel that an inexperienced player will struggle with this easy champion (if they follow this guide).

Honestly, changing the build is probably going to end up being the only thing that will improve this guide. As with what I said before, some formatting would make this guide a lot better. Check out this guide for some more information on that.

But that's all. Maybe I'm just being nitpicky; other people obviously seem to enjoy your guide. I'm just inserting my two cents.

Really cool build concept!

I like a few of the fresh ideas in this, while you also utilize a lot of the central features of popular Soraka builds.

Going to give this a go today and report back!

Let's start off with masteries:
While they are generally fine, I disagree with taking Unyielding over Recovery and taking Fearless over Insight . Recovery is simply more valuable since you build next to no armor or magic resistance, thus making Recovery 's added health regeneration better for you. Fearless on the other hand is better if your job isn't to stay as far from the fight as humanly possible and keep your carries healthy. Insight offers better laning and you have your summoners up more often which makes you more secure.

Summoner spells:
Ignite is sort of trashy on someone like Soraka, since you aren't exactly a kill lane with her. I wouldn't recommend anything else but Exhaust or Heal when it comes to her summoner spells since those are the ones that best suit her. Ignite is very situational and has very few uses apart from winning some 2v2 situations, which are already quite easy for your with Soraka lane.

Build:
Guardian Angel and Locket of the Iron Solari are not core build. Locket of the Iron Solari is viable in many cases, but Guardian Angel is basically never. Core build is strictly Ardent Censer and Redemption. You should also start with Ancient Coin (better gold gain]].

You don't mention Mikael's Crucible or Zeke's Convergence at all in your builds.

Hello my dear Janitsu,I see you check a lot of Soraka guides and I respect your opinion.However I tested my build and I put a lot of thinking and effort in my guide.It has over 60% win -rate for me and it won many games of mine both ranked and normal!
First of all,thanks for checking it out.I take Unyelding and Fearless because it is exactly the reason I can stay up to fights.I checked recovery and I still believe that with my build the best choice to go Unyielding and Fearless because you get extra armor and MR,while you already gain a lot of hp regeneration with the extra ap from spellthief's (from average poking you get all the stacks at least at min 14!)and Ardent Censer plus your runes.I've mentioned that I'd suggest Heal if you'd be able to convince your ADC mostly and I gave exhaust as a choice for summoner spells so I don't think we can argue there XD.Ignite though gives you that early aggressive lane that you need as Soraka,we are an Angel we cannot play like other Sorakas! I've won all ranked games with that certain build and Gurdian Angel is a must have with that build since we are the undying Tenshi right?.The benefits are that it gives armor and the passive in teamfights may forgive bad positioning,people tend to underestimate its power,plus we need Locket of the Iron Solari because of the crispy shield and the extra armor and mr! Yes it's a core build with this guide as it protects every ally of yours who is near and gives you time to react with Redemption and your other healing spells!
My guide is different so I'd like you to know that it's purely made because it works for me and I mention a lot of information about my choices.For example I disagree that Soraka doesn't have a kill lane.Ignite can deny enemy's heal summoner spell or general healing spells and regeneration.With an ADC that does know that you are able to poke that much you might as well kill someone early which a lot of times happened for us bot lane to gain First Blood,just because of Ignite.Insight is useful but instead we get Ionian Boots which is kind of the same! So I prefer fearless! Trust me there I understand Soraka's capability very well.
I simply do not mention Mikael's Crucible or Zeke's Convergence because in my opinion with this guide these items are not needed! For example you could take Mikael's but you lose either Redemption or Ardent which I don't agree with my guide.Zeke's is indeed a great item but again,I don't like it with this kind of a build,I might prefer it in later patches!
Last but not least,thanks for checking my guide out and I am honored!I do play Soraka a lot and with the items that you mentioned but simply with other builds,not with this one.Wether you decide to use it is up to you.You can't deny something unless you've tried it though right?
Again thank you! And thanks for the questions <3

Thanks for the reply.

As for Unyielding vs Recovery :

Unyielding only increases bonus armor and magic resistance. You get 68,19 armour and 60 magic resistance with your build, thus giving you 3,41 armour and 3 magic resistance from Unyielding . Recovery gives you 2 hp per 5 seconds, which is 24 hp per minute. By six minutes, you would get 144 HP from it, the equivalent of a Health Potion. (I didn't take into account the time that you need to get bonus stats and the fact that you may not be low all the time)

I disagree with Guardian Angel due to the fact, that it excuses poor positioning on Soraka. It gives you stats that you don't necessarily need, you need to invest 2400 g into it for it to become good on her and you could just get Warmog's Armor if you need survivability.

The guide was good but I have a question for Soroka. You get spell thief instead of ancient coin first?
