Touching the stars - Soraka support guide

Learn how to properly use an incredibly underrated and horny (because she has a horn, dummy!!!) support - Soraka.

Pros

  • Has a very good laning duo to strong healing and long poke.
  • Has the most healing overall out of any support.
  • Very easy to pick up.
  • Short cooldowns.
  • One of few champions with a global ult.
  • Probably the most tilt-proof character in the game.

Cons

  • Very weak against items with grevious wounds.
  • Very weak against engages.
  • Her only skill of CC is very hard to fully utilize.
  • Uses her own HP to heal, leaving her weaker and weaker as the fight goes on.
  • Probably makes so much noise when she walks because of her hoofs.
