Oh.. I misread "Force" as "Focus" >.>
Kinda similar.

Soraka isn't a good AP champion. But do ignore me if you refuse to realize that. Because I'm done.

It's ok, I've done that before myself.

I'm not playing her as an AP champion in the sense you think I am. I am building AP to boost my healing, which is the way I support my team.

I build GP/5 items and have Avarice quints so I can give farm to my laning partner and still get items. I've also included most of the regular support items in the situational items section for a reason. I think I will replace the Zhonya's Hourglass with a different item because it should be some other surivibility item that costs less.

If I was the only person playing her that way, I would agree with you.

A more accurate statement would be that it's not really viable in high elo play. It's perfectly viable in normals or even reasonably viable in low elo/elo hell, but in high elo you should be playing straight support Soraka.

Seeing as I don't play straight support Soraka, I wasn't willing to write a guide about it.

ANYTHING is viable in normals/low elo/elo hell.
And I'll leave you with that.

to be honest, "not really viable in high elo play" means not viable.

Normal games still count as games.

You can act like they're not worth mentioning, but there are people who never play ranked games.

A guide for normal games exclusively, or low ELO, is akin to a guide for sub-level 30 players. Guides for high ELO generally work everywhere, and very well at that.

I'm not gonna argue anymore, I've had a headache for the last hour. (-_-')

*sad face*

Sorry about your headache.

Just be happy I'm unwilling to write guides about things I don't know anything about.

Not to be harsh, but can everyone shut up and go back to arguing somewhere else? There's now a page of arguing on my review thread and I really don't like that. >.>

Also done Pik's Malz guide, it's up on the first page. ^^
