There's no grand definition of who's best. Janna shields, CC's, slows and heals a little bit, while Soraka on the other hand heals, refills mana, globally heals and can silence.

If yo were to put it as a a team fight of who can support the best through just utility and everyone is on the exact same skill level, I have to say Soraka but I am biased with that as I like both, I just prefer her over Janna

there's no straight answer to that. the top tier supports are Janna, Sona, Soraka, and Taric, but it really comes down to team composition. Practically any character with a heal can be played as a support, but some are more useful in certain teams than others. The 4 I mentioned are traditional support characters, but characters like Nidalee, Zilean, and Karma can be played with more versatility while still supporting the team.

Generally, Sona is the best because she's so easy to pick up and play. Other than that, Soraka and Janna are really great.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Supports are all different.

If you are super aggressive, Taric is probably the best support, Maybe Sona.

If you are super chill, then Janna or Soraka are better.

If you want to harass with little consequence, then Nidalee or Taric are probably your best bet.


It all depends how you define "best support"

There is no best support.

But the best tanky support is taric.

I think the best pure healer is Soraka or Sona.

Best in a team fight is Janna just due to her ult.

Soraka has 10x better heals than sona.

Taric's heals are a little behind Nidalee's, which are a little behind Soraka's.

Janna is good for fight resets, Sona is good for initiation, or punishing someone that is out of position.

Taric is more of an Aura Bot.
