How much does Soraka suck now?
Not at all.
Only a little.
Ruined forever.

gg to those who enjoyed playing Soraka solo top or mid. Now she's destined forever to have a laning partner. And sucks to be you if your AD is a manaless champion.

I'd think that solo lane Soraka would still be ok, you'd just have to run some mana regen instead of straight AP. Tear of the Goddess would mesh well with her spam style, methinks.

yerrr she's definately a weaker solo now, but she could still work. I mean Ryze works, and he has no natural mana regen. Though he does kinda build around it... Bad example >.<

The point stands, she can still use it to harass, and she can still get mana regen. Besides, if she has to B once in a while it's nbd, just get teleport, and you're fine :P

i wish riot would just buff the supports that are considerably weaker than Soraka/Sona instead of constantly nerfing them. This really doesn't change anything. Both will be played in favor of Karma, Janna, Alistar, etc.
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

they aren't even nerfing sona in the long run.

instead of her q aura giving, 8/11/14/17/20 ad/ap, its going to do something stupid like 4/8/12/16/20. they arent even touching her active auras.

Alistar punishes both the carry and support if either one gets out of position, which happens quite often in lower ELO brackets. He's a very strong support in lane, and I'm happy to play him even if Soraka or Sona is picked.

Soraka's in such a bad spot now.
First, she loses one of the best support skills and her heal is on a stupid long cooldown.

She's now kinda forced to build a tear and, that's not really a great item on her to begin with. Mostly because it delays other, more important items.
