Nautilus Eh,he is nothing before such angel as us.E him when he tries to do anything on you or your baby ADC.Your heals negate everything he does but he is just like blitz,E him if he pulls you or you will die from the enemy adc since you cannot really escape.

Items

~Guardian Angel:Why's that? You are an Angel that's why! You can get up and heal again and again!Extra armor and 50% HP given back when revived duh! Of course we must obtain such power!People keep underestimating its power on our Tenshi,prove them wrong.Bad position can be forgiven with this item,plus more Angelic Banana Power.
~Locket of the Iron Solari:Extra Armor and Mr,plus that Shield is spicy as heck;gives Redemption time to be cast and heal your allies without them dying!In close range.It can protect you as well.
~Redemption:The heal and the HP that it gives is great for team figthing! It can be used as a second ult,as you use it below 40% HP it does more healing
~Eye of Watchers:Extra AP and mana regeneration!Plus you get the CDR you would get from Eye of Oasis.Now even Forstfang gives us 10% CD since it is buffed it benefits us more now,AP is not useful on Soraka you say? Try ulting!After you stack up you get extra movement speed when you hit any spell! That makes a great ally with Q as you slow them and you just Angelically fly away and escape;saves your life.
~Ionian Boots:Extra CDR for spells and summoner spells!
~Ardent Censer:That heavenly AP and CDR is so helpful for your W and R,its passive is also insane for an ADC that mostly scales well on late game.

Having a Hard time?
~Warmog's Armor:If you feel you must obtain it then you can replace it with,Guardian Angel! Yes yes it's a shocker I know,but how are we an angel then? We are an UNDYING Angel so Soraka has the ability to be always full HP just by going few secs away from combat.With this and Elixir of Iron and Redemption you should be fine as you have Locket of Iron Solari as well.
~Athene's Unholy Grail:You can replace Ardent Censer with Athene's Unholy Grail if you'd like,since Redemption gives you already 10% of more healing (plus Windspeaker's!) Both items give you AP and CDR,which make both very useful.Now you take this when you feel your baby ADC dies way too fast or you absolutely need that MR.Your poke gathers stacks and then you gasp heal him with your Angelique powers.I bet you will stay with your mouth wide open from the shocking heals.
~Knight's Vow:It got nerfed but it is a great item it gives HP,armor,Healing Power,CDR and movement speed.Replace it with Redemption if you need extra armor or a bit more of an HP,it works as an Unholy Grail since you can use it on a squishy ally (mostly your baby adc).Why replacing it with Redemption? Simple you arleady have mana regeneration from Ardent and Eye of Watchers plus,you will be able to heal anyway without Redemption.But why I didn't replace it with Guardian Angel and I replaced it with such exaggerated item as Redemption? Well it's simple,you take 12% more damage now,having Guardian Angel gravely helps you,you rise up again with 50% of your HP and you can sustain yourself greatly.
Boots of Mobility:I would recommend them if your Mid Lane does badly and you have to roam,or if you don't want to get caught while go warding,it even helps going faster with your passive,you are a walking ambulance,an Angel coming to aid people to the battle!

Questions you might have about items!
Q:Can I improvise?
A:Yes of course you can,you are smart enough to grasp the situation and not follow my guide entirely.

Q:Why do you think your guide works well that way?
A:Simple,because I've put a lot of thinking,effort and time to calculate what's useful for us Angels to not die and let us carry hard.

Q:Why only these items?
A:Aren't they enough?

Skills

Salvation(Passive):This ability can be used both to position yourself better in teamfights or as an escape as your teammate has low HP you can kite with Q and E,if you believe you have reached a distance which you can heal do it.Plus when your ally has 40% HP or below you can use that to calculate R and W!
Starfall(Q):This abillity is so useful for kiting and poke! You can just sustain yourself forever in lane just by landing Qs!A good way to use it is to poke the enemy ADC while it goes for minnions.
Astral Infusion(W):This abiliy especially in early has a high risk,as it has around 7s cooldown! A good way to use it in lane is when your ADC has below 40% of HP ,use Q first on the enemy and then cast W on your ADC,or any other ally.
Equinox(E):This ability is amazing,silence and root! Plus it does damage both when you cast it and when it is about to fade away! Make sure you use it in lane for rooting wheen the jungler is ganking,or negating enemy's support sustain and CC! It does incredible combo with your Q as you can just slow them and then E them.
Wish(R):Just as your W Wish is a heal.Use it when your allies have low HP,do not misuse it when they have 50% or higher.It can change the flow of a teamfight.

Masteries

~For Masteries we go 0/18/12:
Cunning:
Wanderer:That extra movement speed will mostly aplly to your passive,which is to actually fly your way to your dying ally.
Secret Stash:Who doesn't like mana regeneration and HP regeneration items,this little guy is the most useful one out of these three,once you are below 50% HP you can use it,never use it for mana only.
Meditation:Meditation is going really well with spellthief's poking the enemy adc while it goes for farming is no problem for us while having Meditaion.
Bandit:With spellthief's you gain so much money from it.
Intelligence:Extra CD heck yeah!
Windspeaker's Blessing:10% more healing plus that armor and MR is huge.

Resolve:
Unyielding:So why Unyieldying and no Recovery? You see we already have a great health regeneration from our runes and Q,this extra armor and magic resist is gonna prove useful in late game.Since it scales with your actual level!
Explorer:I use explorer because since you are a support you really need to go ward sometimes/roam with your jungler or even go mid for a kill.It helps you go wherever you want and you can escape from a gank while you are walking in the bushes.
Runic Armor:The healing power with Windspeaker's is huge and your Q is gaining so much from it.
Fearless:It gives MR and Armor,great to have since you don't have MR from runes.

Runes

Glyphs of Ability Power: These runes give you poke and great healing potential in early.
Quintessence of Health Regeneration:These runes do a great job with your Q,especially in early,you will be amazed how well they can sustain you.
Mark of Armor:Armor is useful no matter how you look at it,basic attacks and ADC spells are very dangerous on you so these runes are gonna give you more survival ability.
Seal of Health: so why these? well since you take Runic Armor this is gonna give you the early HP you need,don't worry though Redemption makes up for it and Guardian Angel is not gonna let you down.

Summoner Spells

Flash:You need flash,to kill secure better with Flash Q,or fly away from danger!
Ignite:I love this summoner spell so much! It's basically your preference if you want to use it or not,but I'd recommend it to mostly kill secure or when engaging to deny the baby enemy ADC's heal to themselves or their support.An angel like you shall burn your enemies with your sacred light!
Exhaust:Mmmm,a good summoner spell if you don't feel confident or if you feel you must play passively.
Heal:If you convince your baby ADC to play barrier and you heal that'd be suggested.The undying Tenshi does exceptionally well with this one!

Tricks & Tips

We all know that our Angel Soraka is perfect so far right? Yes she is.The thing is that besides knowing what to build you need to know what to do!For example when or where to ward how or when to engage!


~Warding/Engaging:Warding is crucial and can decide wether you must play offensively or deffensively! Knowing where the enemy jungler is,is gonna help you lots! Therefore we must have as an all seeing Tenshi; MAP AWARENESS.Knowing that enemy jungler is Top or somewhere that he cannot aid their useless bot lane;allows you to poke a lot and of course get easy kills.I'd suggest you looking for enemy wards too because if they can control vision they are equallizing their strength.

~Roaming:Roaming as a support means that you leave your baby ADC un protected.Therefore you should not leave lane for a long time,I suggest you roam for only 1 minute maximum because if you roam mindlessly you are not gonna get any gold or experience and probably your ADC is gonna die(and then ping to you that enemies are mssing).Deciding when to Roam is up to you! I mostly roam when I recall back to base,to control ward river bush and allow mid lane and me to have vision in such important place.If you see mid lane is pushed,go for a kill (Always though keep in mind where the enemy jungler would be).Roaming with your jungler is a great choice if he is close and if there's an Infernal prioritize it first.

~Positioning:Positioning on Soraka is not only important is everything!Even with your Guardian Angel you should not get devoured by your sense of power! Hiding behind a Fighter or a Tank is the most reasonable and logical choice.Never go near your ADC in a teamfight first thing because they will instantly get focused,remember your ADC wants goood positioning as well.

~When to use Wish:Wish is a great ability but you can overestimate it or underestimate it,certain times you might feel you won't be able to save your ally if he is caught and you will hesitate using it but certain champions like Kayn can escape easily from enemies.Don't hesitate to use your ULTIMATE when you believe you can save someone and don't let the enemy team to receive a kill.Sometimes though there's nothing you can do to save someone who has done a mistake.Try to use it in late game while in teamfights (teamfights sometimes are sudden so that's why I am yelling for you to not waste your Angelique power that easily) and don't overestimate it by using it whenever thinking that you have a low cooldown on it.Your ultimate is a huge teamfight helper!Nevertheless your ultimte in late is gonna heal everyone almost full HP when they have below 40%,I'd suggest using it then.

~Be Positive!:Last but not least,I'd suggest you always try to laugh off your mistakes and learn from them.As much as you don't believe it learning from your experience pays off more than any guide,many pros advise you to watch your replays in order to learn from your mistakes,if you feel you lack something you should do so!Never blame your mistakes on others and try to never flame your teammates.You are a support so provide emotional support to them when they flame or tilt!(You are an angel so when an enemy is tilting then tilt them more!).
