Soraka is an incredibly strong support that can damage and silence enemy heros in an AOE with Equinox and heal allies anywhere with Wish.
Soraka has a global heal, Wish, that can be used to save allies from getting killed or during a teamfight to completely shift the momentum.
Since Soraka is fairly squishy, stay back and cast spells from afar during the laning phase and teamfights.
Q: What can I give Soraka so she doesn't have to go back to base all of the time to heal back up?
A: For a good sustain Soraka build that allows you to avoid having to go back to base all of the time, you should consider grabbing yourself Warmog's Armor. It can help you heal back up between fights. Because her main healing ability take a percentage of her max health with each use, stacking health won't help you. You will lose the same percent of your health no matter how much bonus health you have earned from your Soraka build.
Q: What is the most important thing to consider when playing Soraka?
A: Soraka's positioning is the most critical thing to pay attention to. She can deal some damage with her poke, but she's really just a healer. In teamfights you need to be safe. Do not engage the enemy directly.
Q: What are Soraka's greatest strengths and weaknesses?
A: Soraka's greatest strength is her incredible healing ability. She can do massive amounts of healing between fights to keep her teammates on the front lines as well as mid-fights to prevent them from dying. Further, with the current item meta, she can provide a lot of other buffs with her heals. Check out the Soraka build guides above to see what current items and runes best fit into the current meta. Soraka's greatest weakness is that she can do almost nothing on her own. If your allies are incompetent, you will lose. There's nothing you can do on your own to turn the game around if you allies suck too.
League of Legends Soraka players could find her to be a difficult character to build out properly. You will see that her build varies when she is fighting either generic or specialized team compositions, meaning you should not take the same Soraka build every round of League of Legends
The most important items to use in your champion's build include: Moonstone Renewer, Ardent Censer, and Staff of Flowing Water. Players who included these pieces in their builds had a greater win rate than players who tried for other Soraka builds. Similarly, if you are facing a varied enemy team comp, you should strongly consider getting yourself the Sorcery, and Resolve runes. In recent matches, she won the largest fraction of her rounds when using these runes.
