Tips Against Soraka as a Support Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
Deathbat1 says “Enchanters are insanely broken and are really hard to deal with even after healing nerfs.”
MorBidMike says “the silence is annoying and she out heals so its a tough matchup but play for the all in and target her for the kill. the beauty of rell is that you can target both the carry and raka.”
Touka1 says “Can be annoying because she kinda makes you rush Putrifier if you wanna kill enemy otherwise it's kinda even match-up. If you utilize your movement speed to play around her Q's it's not hard to punish her in lane and also run ignite everytime you playing against Soraka...!”
DocturShaco says “Buy Antiheal or Target her when you engage, unless she is playing back. If so then take anti heal and just burst ADC. If she is good she will put silence under her ADC which can fuck you over. So bait out her E and then Engage.”
Tqnshi says “She heals, she pokes, she silences and she roots. Her E starts as a silence but if you stay in it for too long it'll root you, the silence doesn't disable your W though. Build oblivion orb early against this cutie because her healing is outright disgusting.”
spirit legacy says “Rush Anti healing and when trading, avoid getting hit by any Q. That way you'll slowly win the lane. Focus Soraka and avoid taking even trades. Soraka punishes even / bad trading very hard due to her healing. ”
Challenger Project says “Soraka is an interesting case. You can easily snowball this lane, if we hook constantly and consistently. However after she builds moonstone it is getting near to impossible to kill someone. Pre 6, hook her and focus her down with your ADC. After 6 however, it’s best to hook enemy carry AND ULT SORAKA, this way, you can CC lock her carry with HOOK into KNOCK UP from ULT into PASSIVE AA. The problem on Nautilus vs lots of healing is we need rly expensive Thorn Mail to apply Grievous Wounds. The problem with all enchanters is all the same - if we don’t snowball early hard, we fall off and get outscaled.”
Maxwell_Shaco says “Avoid getting hit by Sorakas Q and any poke you do will be maintained.
With good box placement and follow up she can be easy to kill since she lacks mobility.
Try to target her or burst your target before she can get to them.
Grab early antiheal.”
Demonsedge90 says “Soraka isn't a pain on her own, but a pain due to her healing. You need to make sure to rush thornmail and force of nature to make sure she can't poke as much and still be able to cut her healing. Not a hard matchup. Due not that her e can silence you which disables your engage and you need to plan around it.”
Cordiall says “Another champion that can't do anything to Braum. Take Ignite, buy an early Bramble Vest, congratulations, you've won lane against Soraka. Just be careful of her silence on her E keeping you from doing anything and you should be fine.”
hampenguin says “Pretty insane healing and unexpected damage early. Only lane I would ever consider rushing grievous into. Pay attention to the wave or how they position, because you'll only die in this lane to ganks.”
Eu como Miilena says “Caso ela fique atrás de o máximo de poke no adc inimigo para ela ter que perder muita vida curando e se ela ficar perto do adc foque ela. se ela vier jogar o Q dela em você de poke nela e não deixe ela recuperar vida.”
AvengingAvacyn says “Soraka is not much of a threat as long as you can get up to her. If you can get in her face and stun her, she tends to die extremely quickly. She doesn't have much that naturally counters Rell, as long as you can help your teammate set the kill up.”
TheBlueImperial says “Soraka is pretty much a heal bot with limited utility, you can mostly counter her with a Grievous Wounds item. She is an immobile enchanter with no real self protection, so you can easily jump on either her or her carry very easily.”
teaa says “Soraka é o suporte mais tranquilo de jogar contra, ao contrário da maioria das matchups, nesse caso você deve focar o poke na Soraka, pra que ela fique sem vida pra curar o ADC inimigo.
Faça corta-cura cedo e com certeza você vai dominar a lane.”
a8qoyrl says “A good soraka will just put down silence field on her carry where you and your 'adc' are engaging. Just be carful of it and dont both get stunned. Early on, her healing is whatever, so engage early so that she cant get much healing for suriving carry.”
Winter Nicole says “Soraka: She can heal her adc which can be annoying but she can be easily kill a lot of times If you keep stunning her for your adc and make sure to shield/heal your adc so they don't die. (Recommend stunning her a lot and her wasting for health a lot for her adc to a point where she cannot help which can leave their adc helpless)”
Discord231 says “"Que no tu adc estaba a 1 de vida" Implorale a tu adc que gaste 800 de oro en heridas graves (pues tu necesitas un ítem completo para aplicarlas bien), o si no, un 2 vs 2 no será posible de ganar. Ten cuidado con su silencio. ”
GuanaTv says “Procure focar o Soraka durante a Fase de Rota e não terá muito com o que se preocupar o resto do jogo.
(Try to focus on the Soraka during the Lane Phase and you won't have much to worry about for the rest of the game.)”
Gobomo says “Either poke her ADC out until she loses health from healing them while dodging her Qs so she can't heal, or failing that, win through your better mana sustain. This is a pretty skill based matchup, though. ”
eiensiei says “Bait her Q by walking forward just barely in range and then walking back again. When her Q is on cooldown, poke freely. Ping when she gets level 6 to let your solo lanes know their 1v1 might not be a 1v1.”
Doglightning says “run ele or pred. In lane she can poke you pretty hard early and negate most of your poke. You really can only all in when you have ignite. You need to find big ults to start fights or her sustain will ruin your team.”
Twisted Tea Fate says “I don't think you can pick a card while you're in her E so prioritize getting out. Her only sustain is landing her Q on you so just stand back and force her into a bad position and then jump on her.”
Terroronyou says “Very annoying, can spam heal most of your damage, will require an all in. Do your best to dodge her spells and consider a early Morellonomicon if team is not building Executioners Calling / Morellos early.”
Mystral says “Hard lane for Lulu, her heals make your poke useless. Try to poke her a lot before she hits 6 and if you're in draft mode/ranked, take Ignite instead of Exhaust. If she's a good Soraka, she'll stay behind in every moment.”
eiensiei says “Bait her Q by walking forward just barely in range and then walking back again. When her Q is on cooldown, poke freely. Ping when she gets level 6 to let your solo lanes know their 1v1 might not be a 1v1.”
LimTheDestructor says “In the early laning phase, don't get poked down but force Soraka to use Qs and hit nothing. Mostly, focus Soraka first (her adc only if you have enough damage to kill him fast enough). Snowball the game before she outscales you.”
warmfishu says “Very annoying poke if she lands Starcall (Q), and can reset your W if you stand over her Equinox (E). Otherwise, not usually a problem. Will heal back poke damage, so try to burst her down quickly. Her R now cleanses Grievous Wounds, so it is harder to back her and her teammates into corners without multiple sources of GW.”
Rasta Da Masta says “Literally the only thing you have to worry about is her Q since that's how she heals herself. She's easy to poke down & she can't stop your pushing.
She can R to help allies across the map if you look to roam, but as for lane, focus your poke on her & look to CC her away from her partner (or vice-versa).”
LegendaryOstrich says “Soraka will poke you down a lot early game. Try to avoid her Q as much as possible. Look to fight once her E silence is on cooldown since it's the only way to stop you. Soraka players sometimes take barrier but always take ignite in this matchup to cut her healing down. If behind, look for fights only when ignite is up.”
Korippo says “Total skill matchup IMO. Same deal being that late game you want Chemtech Putrifier due to her global healing ult. Early game she's going to try and poke with her Qs, it's MUCH better to try and chip her down over her ADC since she can heal them but not herself, and she needs to use health to heal which is quite draining early game. She can be very oppressive and have a lot of say over teamfights though with her ult, so rushing Oblivion after your mythic is actually a good idea overall.”
CorgiBorgi says “ALSO ONE OF YOUR HARDEST COUNTRS. Outscales, Out pokes, and has better everything than you. Try and ruin the laning phase for her so it takes longer for her to scale. (Build moonstone)”
Flackojodye says “build grievous wounds somewhere between 1st back and before your 2nd item. You can oneshot her later, and in the lategame she cant approach brushes to ward or clear vision, because you'll one shot her.”
Distinger says “Sona's little sister.
She has an INSTANT silence on her E stopping you from doing anything.
Late game she can spam her heal every 2 seconds, and her ultimate not only is a GLOBAL HEAL for her entire team, which means she can stop you from ulting at any time and location, but she also removes GW making it even harder to counter her.
Soraka is a priority target in every teamfight if you are playing Pyke,”
Frappessb says “Incredibly annoying as they can heal quite a lot. Ignite is a must for this match-up. To help mitigate as much healing as possible, try and avoid the falling star as that gives her a free cast of her heal. Also try and get Oblivion Orb as soon as you can.”
Lynter says “Runa Recomendada: Conquistador.
Soraka puxará lane com Q e tentará te acertar com AA também. Nos níveis iniciais, é possível matá-la com certa facilidade, mas é importante que você seja agressivo após ela utilizar o Q (Starcall) para assim ela errar e negar toda a recuperação de vida que ela possa receber ao te acertar. Caso ela te acertar, além da vida ela ganha velocidade de movimento, dificultando o posicionamento das adagas. Apesar da facilidade de jogar contra, dê roaming pois ela mesmo assim poderá ajudar o time dela com sua ultimate global e pode prejudicar lutas nas outras rotas e assim dando "roaming" sem sair da lane. Em teamfights, é um suporte e portanto faça corta-curta com Morellonomicon para reduzir seu efeito e tente foca-la de imediato para seu time poder ser eficiente. O potencial de perigo de Soraka é baixo visto que a Katarina possui alta mobilidade e consegue reduzir a cura com a ultimate em um percentual ainda maior (60%).”
SlippStream says “You can match or surpass her poke in lane, and while her healing is better than yours early game, you can fit Executioner's Calling into your build. Beware of her ability to turn fights incredibly quickly.”
0Banda says “ Soraka is not a difficult champion to play against, you just need to roam, roam and roam. As she will be healing a lot your enemy ADC and you are not likely to kill him. Thats why you will be looking for kills in midlane
When engaging, always focus her, as if you don't kill her the first one, she will be healing her allies and you won't be able to kill anyone
Against a Soraka you should build as second or third item Morellonomicon because of all the healing she will be granting, in the rune section you can take Waterwalking in order to roam even faster”
Idleangelo says “Alt ban. Dodge the Qs, You cant trade with her if she keeps hitting those. I recommend bringing ignite and bait her into Qing you instead of your carry, who's easier to hit due to focusing on CSing.”
Luiscencias says “I don't respect Soraka. Not even a little bit. Tell your ADC to build executioner's calling and you win the lane. Focus her, not her ADC in lane. Don't eat her Q's if you wanna actually be able to kill her. Once you have Lich Bane you can literally kill her by yourself. I often catch Sorakas warding and get me a tasty kill. Do respect her silence and remember she and her ADC have 300-500 more health than their bars seem to indicate. Be smart with your ignites.”
Hanjaro says “Soraka has an unparalleled ability to trade, and her silence can easily stop a Yuumi in her tracks. She can outheal Yuumi, and if you/your team doesn't take grievous wounds, it's hard to compare.”
Jowoey says “Good Soraka players are very annoying. I recommend rushing Chemtech Putrifier and making sure you focus her down almost every time. Refill pot if she knows how to poke in lane. Try to dodge her Q as well as you can.”
Melyn says “Early game is very hard (until level 3 or so) as she will poke you to oblivion with E and Q. Do not all in without ignite and try to focus the Soraka when possible. E max is effective here.”
Hanjaro says “She has extreme sustain, and a silence which can negate your engage, stop your escape, and turn into a root if you stay into it too long. She has decent poke on her Q, and can ult her team from across the map. She is squishy, but takes a lot of focus.”
Biotic says “Buy antiheal and this champ is useless. She has good base damage but you can match it. Again easy to lockdown CC Level 3+ and as soon as your Adc has Antiheal you should win all the time 6+. Also call jungler she is easy to gank. ”
Rayzer74jr says “She will silence you and you will not be able to send out your W or dash towards the enemy so she is going to be hard to get anything off on. If anything try to bait her silence by walking to her and changing direction to the ADC. Might work in low elo, haven't gone against a good one yet to know for sure.”
Guoblide says “Soraka is a pretty hard matchup for Braum due to her poke and sustain letting her get out of the laning phase alive and scale well into the later stages of the game. Soraka is an Enchanter support who specializes in healing her teamates and making plays around the map with her global heal from Wish. Soraka powerspikes at Level 2 where she gains access to Astral Infusion which is her main sustain tool, Level 3 where Equinox gives her amazing peeling and sometimes catch potential, Level 6 where Wish gives her global presence around the map, and Level 9 where she maxes Astral Infusion which sets it on a ridiculous low cooldown and makes it heal a ton. In lane Braum should play safe and out of range of Starcall at Level 1. If Soraka throws one out then take the 8 second downtime to walkup, pressure her ADC, and poke with Winter's Bite. Once Soraka hits Level 2 she gets extremely strong. The sustain and safety she gets from it makes it virtually impossible to get poked out of lane. She can also finally transfer her Rejuvenation passive from Starcall onto her allies. Dodging Starcall at Level 2 and after is extremely important because Soraka landing one lets her cast a less strong Rejuvination for pretty much nothing. Keep in mind that Unbreakable can block both the damage AND the Rejuvenation part of Starcall though. Once Soraka hits Level 3 her Equinox makes her pretty much impossible to be engaged on. She can also use it as a form of CC if she catches someone out with it and they don't react in time. Continue trying to dodge her Starcalls and pray for a jungler to come and gank your lane. If Braum somehow manages to shove the wave into her tower then look to roam. After Braum hits Level 6 he can look to get a pick on Soraka or her ADC with Glacial Fissure if they are out of position due to Soraka's only major defensive spell being Equinox. Roaming is important on Braum due to Soraka having horrible roams and usually not being able to punish him for doing so.”
Billehz says “Pretty useless against you as well, especially if you rush Grievous Wounds early. She doesn't have a good way of dodging your charm, so take that into account when playing against Soraka.”
Jaori says “She will have her item completed before you reach 400 gold. Q spam is kinda annoying, her E stops your E. If you manage to ult her and stun near your tower, she won't be able to do anything.”
Go Getter says “Soraka is a hard champ to play for most and you can easily avoid a lot of what she does. Sadly for her the same cannot be said.
If you got a confident ADC you can demolish her early game.”
Hanjaro says “Squishy if caught out, but she can heal a lot of your damage if you let her land her Q's. Avoid her spells, watch out for her silence if you get close to engage. Take morello's as she scales well into late game.”
baginthecup says “You lose this lane because Soraka does a better job at controlling the lane than you do. You can quietly win by making more money than Soraka using klepto and q double procs when you aren't at risk of getting Soraka combo-d but there's low chance of killing Soraka and you probably won't out trade her either. ”
SupportTooEz says “You are better than Soraka in almost every way. Just make sure not to detach when she places silence and don't let your adc be poked out. Play with your adc, if they are playing kaisa, just farm, or if tehy are playing ashe, engage level 6.”
HerYandere says “Rush boots, don't let her Q hit you, and kill her first if you can. If your ADC doesn't get grievous at level 6, don't engage. Let them do the work, cause you're useless without grievous.”
terrybogar1 says “CC her and she simply dies. (assuming she didn't put her root thing under herself), But, beware of the infinite poke she will shit at you and heal her adc with. They will both always be full health if you can't avoid her Q poke. ”
Esoterica says “While a dedicated healer, Soraka's true threat comes from her ability to stop your kill attempt at any time. When jumping in, DO NOT STAND THERE PRESSING W TO BLINK BACK. Play as if she will ALWAYS try to silence you when you engage.
Her Q poke is frequent but easy to avoid, and she cannot hit both you and your ADC at the same time. Aim to punish her while walking out of her silence zone as fast as you can.”
Dotje says “If you're able to dodge her Q you can win this. If you're confident harass her as much as you can for the easy spellthief stacks. Make sure you know who to focus in this lane. And consider taking ignite.”
KeleiX13 says “There is nothing keeping you from running Soraka down in lane once She's used her E so punish her if she randomly uses it to poke which is something a lot of people do. You probably won't be able to do a lot of damage to her if she hits her Q's but if she doesn't, she's just a fragile sack of gold. For that, try to dodge her Q's with your E and get your team to get Grievous Wounds since her mid-late heal is massive especially if she hits her Q's and she can just spam heal.”
Discord231 says “"Que no tu adc estaba a 1 de vida" Implórale a tu adc que gaste 800 de oro en heridas graves (pues tu necesitas un ítem completo para aplicarlas bien), o si no, un 2 vs 2 no será posible de ganar. Ten cuidado con su silencio.”
LilRidge says “Soraka will try to poke you out with her (Q) Starcall, especially when you're trying to proc your Support item. Try your best to not get hit by it at all as she will keep her and her ADC healthy. When going for an all-in, it will be wise to bait out Soraka's (E) Equinox before engaging. This will also be applicable when your Jungler is about to gank you.”
SpartanDumpster says “Crowd Control can be a nightmare for Zilean. Being silenced means you can miss the perfect chance to stun enemies, you can't boost your own or your teammates speed, and you can't cast your ult which can require clutch timing (or at the very least you need to cast it in a tight window).”
Ruiner of Fun says “If properly peeled she can be far more valuable than the enemy ADC. She can constantly heal off your lack of range. She can also just silence you the moment you go to flip. High priority target.”
Starchase says “Her poke is better than yours, so heal all her poke damage with your E.
Ping your teammates when she gets lvl 6, the healing that this ability gives catches people off guard.
Rush Oblivion Orb.
Depending on the ADC's, you outscale her or not.”
Takitsu says “Another Hook = Kill lane.
Early game is where you punish soraka. always focus the soraka until you, or your carry gets grievous wounds. Soraka healing will make you question that you even did any damage. Just kill the banana user and make the enemy carry watch. Dodging her Q in lane helps massively in ensuring you are healthy enough to fight the 2v2.
Post-6 She just has an additional heal, a hook will still kill.”
AvengingAvacyn says “Most Soraka players build around healing instead of damage and this makes her extremely squishy. She also doesn't do much for her ADC besides healing. She can silence you, but that's not much of a threat because you should be far enough away to recover from it. ”
losolkos says “very much healing speed bost and slow. atack soracka use passive on soraka and dodge her q to dont let her heal so much when you make atack use ign or adc beafore 6lv and after 6lv use on soraka also just stun her you need to kill her fast. Alway move to make her hard to jit you with Q.”
Discord231 says “"Que no tu adc estaba a 1 de vida" Implórale a tu adc que gaste 800 de oro en heridas graves (pues tu necesitas un ítem completo para aplicarlas bien), o si no, un 2 vs 2 no será posible de ganar. Ten cuidado con su silencio. ”
Tartmeringue says “Soraka is a stand in for the enchanters. Your main threats are enchanters with cc. If they're good you'll never get close to them and they will poke you down. Probably winnable but def a skill check lane.”
Bear Gummies says “Soraka is a pain because she seems to be able to heal all of the damage you do to her with little health/mana cost in the early game, so this might be a situation where you want to rush oblivion orb and try to force an all in, since she can only heal so much during an all in in the early game.”
PalestinianLuck says “Skill based matchup
If she silence you while you try to Hook or dash/flash you will lose the Trade.
The challenging part is the heal which may deny you a lot of succesful ultimates.
Remind your teammates to buy Antiheal”
Jannito02 says “Soraka is not known for being a support that really gets the enemy team in trouble in terms of damage or CC. But her heals are stronger than Yuumi's, her E silence can stop you from using your W, and if she stuns you with it, you may give Soraka a calmer lane, making her hit you her Q to heal herself a bit, or even killing you with her ADC.”
EionThePepega says “Rushing out Oblivion Orb will significally improve your lane experience. In terms of the champions, it's a easy lane, altough an experienced summoner will be harder due to Soraka's zoning abilities.”
mscocca says “Immobile champion. Play safe and you will be able to melt her once you get access to Luden's Echo.
Only sore point are the heals on her W and R as she might be able to outheal your damage if ahead.”
xDopii says “Soraka has a lot of sustain and her R can be very annoying against your own R because it heals people back up again.
Overall she is squishy and immobile though so try to pick her a lot. Avoid walking in open space and trying to hook her as her silence will cancel your hook and root you in place.”
EionThePepega says “Tell your ADC to rush Executioner's Calling and focus her first, as she can do much except Slow or Silence you, but you can bait them off with fake engaging. But of course respect it if she does have Silence up.”
Tradicale says “Soraka will prove to be incredibly challenging for a few reasons.
1. She can silence you with her E after you land your Q, which will prevent you from continuing your combo, root you most times since you won't have enough time to walk off, and can follow up with her Q to heal herself. Play around her cooldowns, focus her first if possible, and ignite will be invaluable so make it count.”
Jexeff says “Not really a threat to you at all. The more annoying part is that she will be healing any damage you are trading onto the ADC. Since she relies on her own health pool to heal, try to avoid her Starcall abilitiy. When she hits an enemy champion with it, she will regain a portion of her health. Look to whittle down the Soraka the best you can. ”
Wounds2 says “Soraka's silence can make it difficult for you to make plays without getting punished. Her ult can also make your engage much less effective. She is very easy to kill, so burn her flash by engaging on her and let your team know that its down. That way, it is much harder for Soraka to be useful because she needs to worry a lot more about her positioning.”
fishbully says “If you go heavy poke Soraka has the capability to out-heal all of that damage. Because of this Soraka poses a serious threat to Janna early game. Late game Janna should have the advantage.”
itizhelia says “A good Soraka would always silence you and poke you down. Fortunately, this isn't the case since many Soraka players struggle to keep up with Rakans speed so you shouldn't be that much worried as initially planned if you're facing a billion games played Soraka player.
Learn to dodge her skill shots and respect her silence ability and also get grievous wounds mid-game.
FiddlesticksChan says “She can poke you out and can heal out of your execute range during all stages of the game. Her silence is a huge threat as well. Watch your feet, don't get rooted. If you manage to avoid her skillshots, she's a free kill.”
Xeptron says “Soraka offers very safe laning phase to her ADC. A lot of heals and sustain. All your poke gets healed instantly and you can't do anything about it... unless you manage to find a hook towards her and burst her down. A good suggestion is to buy mobility boots against her - it will make life easier to dodge her Starcall (Q ability) damage and close the gap between you and her for an easy flay/hook. As of recent she received a small Astral Infusion (W ability) buff, making her heals a bit stronger but if you pick up a ignite as a summoner spell, it can be very game changing. Overall Soraka has a great level of sustain but low damage and no way of escaping a hook. Once it lands, she has no escape.”
Frank6264 says “Este enfrentamiento es bastante similar al de Sona pero un poco más complicado ya que si soraka les consigue meter su Q, va a curarse ella y curar casi gratuitamente a su ADC, además de que en juego medio-tardío va a aportar muchísimas curaciones a su equipo. En línea es mejor intentar matar a Soraka antes que al ADC ya que será más dificil de hacer daño al ADC debido a las curaciones que este último pueda recibir de Soraka. También recomiendo ignite en este enfrentamiento y corta curaciones.”
Sunedayz says “This matchup has become so easy with the introduction of support healing reduction. Get an oblivion orb early to ruin her day. Avoid her slow Q projectile, and roam around the map. You probably can't kill her, but you can apply pressure elsewhere.”
DracoMeteor_ says “Soraka has a lot of Healing and is able to keep her ADC alive. Try to poke her out as much as you can and don't let her land her Q's so she can heal back the damage you deal. If she does go in to Q you and over steps then poke her so she takes damage.”
CaptianMike says “She cannot threaten you in lane, and if you manage to stun her, she will die quickly. Stay away from her silence zone and other than that, she has no hard CC. Focus her before every fight! I would take ignite and gathering storm here. Scorch's poke won't last very long.”
sssky says “Soraka isn't a threat, but in the case you need to ult, the instant AoE silence completely counters you from casting your ultimate.
Other than that, it's a very winnable matchup: you both have incredibly strong sustain -- but she needs to hit Q for it -- you just need to move and auto attack things.
You can kill her in all-ins.”
Titans Revenge says “Always remember, kill the Soraka FIRST. Don't engage the ADC and let her stand there healing them back up. Soraka has low mobility. Get onto her. Her E does have a silence and some CC if you stay inside of it, so avoid that and you are good to go. Also dodge her Q when possible as it will allow her to heal herself up.”
Hceercs says “After nerfing her to prevent her from being a Laner, support Soraka hasn't really been able to be aggressive as before. Although she's pretty vulnerable to all-ins, you still probably shouldn't focus her AD without ignite.”
CastratedSeal says “Nami has a much stronger lane phase than Raka. She'll only have a stronger mid/late game than you if your team has a tank she can constantly hit with her Qs in fights. She's very susceptible to ganks early.”
IbnBattuta says “Since when Soraka is a threat? Soraka's E can silence you once it touches you and if positioned right, she'll cancel your E making enemy's ADC take the chance to kill you while you're vulnerable.”
doorknobber69 says “No lie, you don't really die to Soraka top nor do you kill her. Just go tp and roam. Literally she will either go tp or barrier and you just cant kill her cuz she silences slows and runs away.”
GMGZ2 says “Can out heal your poke DMG, so the best solution is to focus poke Soraka as much as possible. She needs HP to heal so if she has none she becomes useless, avoid her Q and she is truly useless since she can't regain HP unless she hits it. Her E is the only other threat which can silence and possibly root you, but it is fairly easy to get out of using your Q. I would say this is an easy lane all around. Her R that heals out your poke DMG is the only real threat I can think of, and maybe her late game heals being godlike but that's it. Again, just focus poke her and she is useless.”
NEED WATER says “Immobile with no heavy poke makes Soraka pretty easy to deal with most of the time. The sustain during lane will be annoying but you will make up for it when her pokes feel like tickles. Be mindful of her ult during all-ins and try not to feed her ADC. ”
Frogsterr says “You can easily out-damage her when you use the runes I have shown you early and late game. Can root if you get in her E, but should be fine when you escape. Be careful around level 6 since she can heal her enemies no matter the distance and sustain herself in a fight depending.”
Guoblide says “TAKE GHOST. Soraka is another enchanter peel support who is hard for Sett to beat in lane and ends up majorly outscaling him in the late game. In lane Soraka can poke you down and bully your ADC with Starcall. Starcall also slows Sett when hit which makes him engaging onto her extremely difficult. Soraka can also outsustain you in lane as well as heal her ADC with Astral Infusion and make them un-pokeable. The worst thing about her kit though is Equinox. Equinox is a zone that silences you and roots you if you stand in it for too long. Whenever Sett Flashes or engages Soraka can just throw down an Equinox to silence you and a Starcall to slow you and run away with her ADC. Engaging on a Soraka is almost impossible. Another horrible thing about Soraka is that her ultimate, Wish, is a global ultimate so she can effect the map while staying in lane. Flash on her at level 2 to try and trade Flashes and then try to bait out her Equinox and take advantage of it's long 20 seconds cooldown. After she uses it then Hextech Flashtraption or Knuckle Down onto her and Ghost when she Starcalls you for the slow. Facebreaker Soraka or her ADC into each other or the minion wave and stun them to hopefully get a kill. If Soraka and her ADC try to freeze the wave under their tower then get your jungler to gank you. During teamfights try to The Show Stopper their frontliner into the backline in order to let your team engage onto Soraka and their carries. If Soraka has a frontliner in front of her she can dish out insane amounts of heal in a short period of time.”
InsaneWind says “Her healing is what makes her the most problematic, her silence CAN become a threat but this is more just you need to bait it out, most Sorakas tend to use it to harass early on so fight then, Remember target the soraka.”
Retrixed says “Soraka can be really annoying when playing against her. Since Rakan has a very aggressive playstyle it can be very frustrating when she gets those easy heals off and gete her ADC back to life. Just be away of this and tell your ADC to focus her.”
GAGESTR says “If they have Soraka it will be harder to apply pressure due to her ability to spam heal. If you're struggling with Soraka rush morellonomicon and that should make it a little easier for you to handle her.”
Jovy says “Soraka is an easy match-up for you because she doesn't have any hard CC and her disengage, thus, is almost non-existant. Her heals are very powerful but she can't heal herself as efficiently, so just focus on her rather than her ADC.”
katt5 says “Its hard to poke through all her sustain and her silence can set up ganks when used well. She also has a decent amount of poke herself. That being said you can take ignite and play passively then all-in when your jungler (hopefully) ganks. ”
HoesBeforeBros69 says “When talking about threats to AP Lee Sin Support, you better mention (Support) Soraka. Her oppressive playstyle with silences and poke-Qs makes the life of every living creature on earth hell, AP Lee Sin Support manages to at least go even with her in trades though. Do not fear to look for flashy Q1 into Q2 + W1 plays, so the enemy is confused and misses every skillshots due to your superior skill and mechanics. As mentioned above only Support Soraka really is something you should worry about, you will easily smash any AD Soraka in lane and also IRL.”
Jovy says “Soraka is easy to handle because she's a very passive support who is also very squishy and doesn't heal herself reliably. She's quite annoying but the trick is to target her and exhaust her ADC if he's a problem when you try to kill Soraka.”
KajiKumihoAkukei says “Soraka is kind of an easy match-up if you play this lane correctly. It is important to always take down Soraka first, because if you focus her AD carry, she will just keep healing and you will have a hard time getting a kill.
Soraka offers great lane sustain, so there's no use trying to get small trades in this lane. It's go hard or go home (home being your base).
Apart from her healing you shouldn't fear Soraka too much as Thresh. She is very squishy and if you land a hook on her, she is almost guaranteed to be a free kill. Just watch-out for her Equinox (E), because it can silence you during engages and leave you vulnerable. ”
Bouhhsolene says “Soraka is kind of the same as Sona, just rush executioner, as you can do it. With executionner, you will heal has much has R, your R gives you presence on the map like her, except you poke better and can kill them all, when she can't. If you hit W she's dead.”
SolarSupport says “Soraka stays away from the front of the lane for the most part and has good disengage with her silence/root. Engaging on her ADC is folly because of her incredible single target healing, so you either have to get fancy with flashes or slow the lane down”
sashadidntwalk says “Similar to Lux, she is squishy and a big poke threat for you early game, in the beginning she will not heal a lot so use that for your advantage, try and dodge her Q's so she doesn't heal back up again and her E's to not get stunned. Her ult will be annoying but won't be a full on game changer in the beginning.”
Taric Support says “Soraka isn't that tanky so you should be able to kill her, but it is pevital that you don't get hit by her Q too often, as it gives her a ton of health back, and then she can heal her ADC for another eternity.”
Vahlok says “I hate this champ. Try to hook her and kill her as fast as possible. If she plays behind her nexus, just go for his adc and ignite him to death. If you somehow get fed (by stealing kills or invade), buy bramble vest and continue with your standard build.”
KeleiX13 says “Soraka has a lot of sustain, so don't try and be too aggressive early as her Q lifesteals. Q her as much as possible and heal to speed up your ADC when they get silenced by her so they don't get rooted.”
Spection says “COMMON. This champion can be quite annoying for all the healing she provides, but she can't heal herself and dies pretty fast as well. A good Soraka will position herself very well to avoid you or your support, but take any advantage you can to bash her if you think you can get off without too much damage.”
ShroudedBRH says “Avoid taking damage from her Q as this will give her free healing. You can get an early executioners if her W becomes too much of a problem during lane phase. Dont stay inside of her silence as this will root you in place”
QueerJunk says “This is an even match-up, however soraka can out-heal you if played correctly and if you dont land CC on her she will out-perform you throughout the game. Focus her in teamfights if she is good and you should be fine!”
TheMistCollector says “She hits harder than it looks. You can poke her very easy if you play careful enough. try to use E before her E because you will be in a very bad spot when trading without it. If Edge of Night isn't that necessary, build Executioner first.”
ShanksMeister says “She isn't difficult IF you can dodge her Q. If you get hit she will damage you and heal for a shit ton. All-in the adc at level 6 IF you have ignite. If you don't have ignite then all-in Soraka.”
Mczrks says “Soraka is annoying, even more than yuumi in my opinion. Her heal from w is so strong in late game that she'll be a nightmare for you and your ulti, she can heal herself aswell from her q, wich also slows you and last, but not least, her ultimate that heal everyone on her team for lot of hp. Not too scary, but deffinitly annoying.”
brandbrandbrandbrandbrand says “Soraka is a pretty even match for brand, if you can avoid her q then you're golden. If she's paired with a caitlyn, jhin, or karthus then don't go into trap points such as near the walls going towards your turret or in the alcove.”
snukumz says “She has about the same poke range as you do.
Her heals will negate a lot of your poke damage.
Her ult will cancel out your ults ability to secure kills if her ult is up and she's paying attention.
She's squishy and you do more damage than her so you and your ADC should be able to win 2v2 fights in lane. ”
Guffel says “Soraka has a lot of range on her Q so she can just poke you and your Adc all the time. Buy boots early to dodge her Q and to get in range for an E. If she has an early Adc play safe and outscale, if she has a late Adc try to kill her.”
trundlesuppport says “she out trade you in lane with her q, so poking is sort of useless, you have to all in or you lose game late. she out scale zyra. never all in far from your adc stay near him and punish her bad positioning.”
SynLynx says “Taliyah Support is great for playing against these kinds of enchanter supports. Most Sorakas will try to start a trade using e, so you can use this to your advantage and get some free damage.”
ThePandaEvan says “Soraka can be annoying with her Q's but most of the time when you are all-ing ignite the ADC so the healing from Soraka is reduced. Poking Soraka means that she can't heal the ADC as much.”
Abusable Yuumi says “Farm lane.
Used to be a terrible counter with Equinox, but since the W change to keep silences from triggering the 5 second hard cooldown on You & Me she's become nothing but a healbot again.”
iNotSushi says “She does decent poke, and can heal her allied laner at a decent rate. However, she will run out of mana far before you do. Look for an engage when she is low on mana or her W is on cooldown so she cant W and/or ult her allied laner out of the dive you throw at them.”
HoneyQT says “Skill Matchup. You outshield her, she outheals you. IMO, Janna is better all-around as she doesn't have to sacrifice her own health and her CC is more meaningful (Rarely will Soraka hit a root), but if the enemy Soraka is better than you, you'll lose to her.”
DestroyerGaming says “Soraka é um campeão bem fácil de ir contra, essa estratégia é utilizada também para sona, tente gastar o suporte inimigo, no caso, ficar dando AA nele para não ter tanta vida para curar o seu adc, no caso da soraka”
XJay11X says “Just No. She can somehow out poke you AND she heals. Very annoying if you get against her. If you buy Mobility boots, you can out maneuver most of her ability's, but it takes some skill.”
FlameOfHecate says “A good Soraka will be able to heal though everything you throw at the enemy adc and she can also silence you which can lead to many instances where you can't use your Q in time , so be careful.”
Thr3shPrinc3 says “I'm putting Soraka here as tiny because aslong as you and your ADC focus her down it's free kills, BUT! If you are focusing the ADC or not switching targets correctly this lane can be quit difficult and you will struggle to win laning phase because of Soraka's constant poke and heal.”
LuxIsMyCrush says “Now basically anyone with a silence/root/stun/any other type of cc that is not slow- is your worst nightmare, no matter their duration, if you get hit by one your W will get set on a 5 second cooldown at all ranks, making you basically dead.
(Btw Soraka have instant silence on her E that after few seconds become a stun)”
Jointed says “Soraka is an enchanter support just like us. Poke the enemy carry for gold and procs on your Spell thief's. This lane will most likely go even. Focus on securing objectives and preventing ganks.”
LFS_aXent says “Soraka can be truthfully annoying. When laning against her, make sure to target and focus her rather than the ADC. Shut her down early so her laner doesn't get fed with her help as easily.”
AsolCollective says “Even with no cc in her kit, she is a menace in lane with her Q and E. Range is one thing, but when the player you and your laner are trying to kill is getting healed faster than you can do damage it's a nightmare for mid to late game.”
Hanjaro says “Soraka has higher healing, and can impact any lane with her ult. She's ranged and has higher sustain and damage in lane. Don't get caught in her silence at opportune moments.
She's very squishy and immobile if caught out. ”
GoBucket says “Most important thing is to dodge her Q's. Once you do that, the engages are pretty straight forward. Don't get poked out, and if you are trading, prioritise her over her ADC (her self-healing is weak...relies heavily on landing Q). When engaging, be wary of her silences, but you should have enough mobility with your E to outplay this.”
Beeee says “One of the champions I see a lot of Lux players struggle playing against is Soraka, her silence can stop your entire damage (and shield!) and her heals can be life-saving for the enemy. However, if you're able to keep your distance and poke from afar you shouldn't be having much of an issue with her.”
marisbroodti says “Soraka is that annoying support that will spam you to death believing that the silence lasts forever. The key to this lane is properly dodging her Qs to deny her from the health regen and engaging her as soon as you have a favorable window. Two or three kills and she will be set for a clear loss.”
Zer0XM says “Soraka suffers the same problems that Sona does but her Q is an actual problem alongside the very powerful silence. The matchup is purely dependent on the ADC's, if yours counters theirs then pull Soraka, if even then pull the bigger threat for the moment, if yours is countered then pull the ADC.”
Quezel says “Her early game poke is absolutely bonkers and costs next to no mana but after you get first back you can all in her with ult quite easily. Take Second Wind and ghost and rush rylais to help with her early poke and just run her down with ult and rylais slow.”
MeatFeast says “For Soraka to be effective she has to play aggressively and poke with her Q & W. This puts her in your threat range which is extremely risky. If you get one lock down on her you either burn all her health which means she can't heal/renders her useless, or you secure the kill. Just bully Soraka and her ADC early game and you can snowball the game from there. She can be a threat late game so be sure to get your ADC to buy Mortal Reminder which reduces her healing effectiveness. I always take ignite in this lane.”
Zefirez says “Recommended Rune set: Hail of Blades or Conqueror.
Goat is so much of a threat with her constant healing, it's basically a rule of thumb to focus and kill her first rather then the adc.
Ignite and early executioner's calling are a must here. What you wanna do is either burst her down then move on to adc (hail of Blades is good for that). or brute force your way through the matchup, expecting the heals and trying to overpower them with damage and sustain (conqueror choice).
Be wary of her silence field (can't use any skills while in it and it'll root you if you stand it when it expires), and q pokes - they heal her, and you don't want that, since healing her allies costs her health and you want it to stay low and burned.
Catching her outta position is crucial and letting enemy botlane push the wave to your tower so the jungler can gank, or you can just ult behind them is a good start to making that goat bleed.”
supersuavebro says “She likes to nullify all the work you put in by healing constantly and zoning you out with her Q. Just try to focus her with Qs and if you have to all in the adc, try to make it a quick death before she heals it all back”
Laverenz says “Soraka is really annoying to play against. She has a lot of healing, which forces you to play with ignite instead of exhaust, making your ADC in danger, as you can't protect your ADC as good as with exhaust. Focus on hooking her instead of the ADC.”
NirvanaBunny says “She doesn't have enough CC and she has no disengage. This lane is super easy. Just watch for her heals--since they're powerful. Remember, she can't heal herself very well with her Q. Focus her other than her ADC.”
Ahpulzz says “She's squishy and doesn't have reliable CC, but if you do not kill her or her partner in one or two trades you'll slowly lose control of the lane. The sustain she gives to her partner is second to none and getting hit by any of her Q's simply allows her to keep sustaining them. Definitely look for a jungle gank on her and go super hard if you can land a hook on her carry or her.”
Ahpulzz says “Unless her positioning is awful, you can almost never win a 2v2 fight against a Soraka. Her Q is very spammable and gets easier to land the closer you are to her, and grants her movement speed and healing when they hit you. This basically allows her to kite you to hell as she heals back from any damage she takes. The fact that she can heal her ally too makes fighting even more dangerous, because while your ADC has to play on a backfoot after getting damaged, Raka can just spam W and completely heal back her carry's health. However, although this sounds terrible, all you need to beat Raka is ganks. Simply pillar her back when your jungler comes and she will almost assuredly die if she doesn't have flash.”
Vermeio says “If you face a Soraka who know what she is doing. You may have some trouble to play. Easy to burst and kill, but a defensive one can be tough to reach. The thing here is... don´t forget her adc, you can still keep doing dmg and forcing her to cure. If needed, consider ulting adc or her and facing the one standing.”
Axeloy says “Soraka heals more than Nami, but that's just about what she has against her. If done right, Nami can crack down on Soraka by slipping through her Q and E and bubbling her, allowing for an ADC follow-up You have more of a lane presence than Soraka in terms of harass/poke/damage. ”
Osamabinlaggin96 says “This lane will go: 1. u kinda lose but aint too bad
2. You destroy
If she stays far back she is good because her silence fks u up and if u focus the ad its gonna be a very tough time to get a kill. MUST FOCUS HER”
Jel0 says “Her ability to treat ADC is very uncomfortable against Morgan because she can easily heal all the DMG you deal in a second. Also her E cancels your skills which practically makes you useless.”
FRIZFOREVER says “if u got bad position and raka land good E u will lose a lot of heaths if not die. but u have better poke and better mana efficiency. u will outtrade her with good wave managment from ur adc”
Quiet Allure says “The only big problem with soraka will be if you jump off your adc, and she silences you. Other than that your range is significantly better than hers. Smack dat behind harder than ever.”
Exs Xena says “Soraka has no pressure on Thresh, and no real escaping tools when hooked. Focus her during your early fights in lane, when you can shut her down, she'll fall behind in items and she'll be useless during midgame. ”
SawyerNelson says “Soraka is short ranged and has to scale. Lux is much stronger than her throughout the laning phase. Soraka's advantage is that she can heal her ally, so if you can't focus her she can sustain her ADC. You can get roams off against her without her being able to match.”
DoABarrellRoll says “Her W makes you unusable and her heal makes your poke a little less efficent, but when she cant defend with these habilities, play aggresive.
Su W te hace inutilizable y su sanación hace que tu pokeo sea un poco menos eficiente, pero cuando no pueda defenderse con estas habilidades, juga agresivamente.”
Hanjaro says “Soraka has deceptively high harass damage in laning phase. Sorakas greatest strength against Pyke is being able to cancel his Q charge with her E(silence). What I have discovered to beat Soraka if her E is up is to try to engage only using a halfway charged Q giving her less time to react to silencing it. Squishy champ/sacrifices own health to heal ally, abuse pre6 before she gets big heals.”
best_shacosupport911 says “Literally just run ignite and Q in.
Don't expect to Q out, she'll silence underneath herself if the player is good. Just use it for the extra surprise on box+damage.
If you "lose" lane to Soraka, wait for Seal+Refillable buy and all-in whenever your absolute focus is active, then just heal up.
Kian987 says “I would prefer to play 2 vs 3 in bot lane instead of facing Soraka. The only thing you can do is E + Flash + Ignite her every 300 seconds. The rest is boredom and disgust. You're a tanky support that looks for troubles but she's a pussy champion that freely spams oppressive spells safely from distance.”
Fruxo says “Can be a really annoying champion to face. Try to avoid her Q's and E's to your best ability. Take advantage of her abilities being on cd. Focus more on her rather then the Adc because she will just heal the Adc. Get Executioner's Calling or even build it into a Mortal Reminder to make her healing less useful, it'll make it easier to kill her.”
SawyerNelson says “After the changes to Soraka in 9.9 she's much weaker in lane, making her a scaling champion. It's very hard for her not to die against neeko if you are constantly looking to punish her when she moves to far forward, don't respect her aggression, punish it with E & ignite early.”
FMLMOMENT says “Out of all the Ardent's this will be your toughest lane , she out pokes you out sustains you and can kite back . Try to play around her silence cool down avoid her Q's and survive laning phase”
NirvanaBunny says “Soraka is not too difficult to deal with. The only part of her kit that is semi annoying is how consistently she can slow you, which gives her some health regeneration. Remember every time she heals it takes part of her health!”
SawyerNelson says “Respect Soraka's level 1-4. Don't entertain trades or else you put yourself on the back foot of the entire laning phase. Later and later into the matchup she is still hard to kill when engaging onto her so take good fights not forced ones.”
Ooze OG says “In my opinion, this is more of an annoying match up, and the winner is patience. If you can avoid her Q/auto harass, you can easily all in her in lane. Play aggressive, and you will win.”
MichelGamingMK says “You should poke with patience because she can outheal your damage while simultaneously damaging you using her Q and forcing you to heal with your W or back.
If you manage to not get hit by her Q you can continously poke her with your Q and force her to use her a lot or even her own ultimate
She is also very squishy so a well done engage from your ultimate and decent follow-up from your team or your adc respectively should be enough to kill her.”
TheLuluMain says “Her q is annoying as it outranges you, and her healing will negate your poke. You scale harder than her so don't feel pressure to win lane, and poke on her adc will waste her mana and hp slowly so don't feel like it's a waste.”
Jeroen R8 says “Look out for Soraka's Starfall (Q) poke as getting hit by this will result in her healing. You can win fights by catching her out and bursting her quickly. Remember to use ignite to stop healing. You can also use this to engage on her ADC.”
JohnGaltDestroyer says “Sona's biggest counter is a champ that can outheal and outrange her. Soraka can easily be dealt with if both Sona and her ADC can dodge the constant Starcall bombardments, otherwise the fight will quickly rely on ADC dps and jungler support.”
weinerman says “hah, pathetic, to be honest soraka's ult might be annoying when you're about to get a penta with a single new patch q. just kidding. you can dust-ify her with a single q (or maybe a bit more) during a team fight because of it's MASSIVE range and your MASSIVE escape power. not a threat it lane.. i mean obviously. just watch out if she e's you when a jungler or something comes. ALSO remember her q still heals her when you spell shield it; but who cares do it anyways. ”
Wasbeer says “Soraka is early easy to kill with you'r Q and W, CAREFULL for the heals this can catch you off-guard. Late game its a walking ambulance but you are aswell, the best part now is that Kayle doesn't pays her own health and has a great ultimate.”
TSMSky says “This champion is so stupid. Sure, Janna can avoid her Q with ease, but your ADC sure as hell can't. Avoid the migraine altogether and take Coin to play passively. Executioner's Calling is your friend.”
ikkas says “Annoying as hell. Combine this with a Caitlyn and you have yourself the worst laning phase possible. The only redeeming quality of playing against Soraka is that she is extremely squishy, always target her.”
FearlessGames says “Her ult can be a pain for when you have trapped her ADC, but if you ignite the target before devouring, you should be able to prevent her doing too much harm. Just make sure you kite her early poke with Q. Don't take ignite if she is laning with vayne, ezreal, xayah, or teemo.”
Lonxu says “If you get hit by her Q and E you might even lose the trades.
So, try to avoid the Q at least and then just poke her out of lane with max range spells and plants.
Her sustains isn't a huge threat. The threat is her ability to deal damage actually.”
revelador says “aunque por molesta que sea su curación solo se quita vida para matarla rápido, su silencio molesta pero solo debes moverte ya en late sus curaciones son nada en camparacion con tu daño”
