Just picked up Soraka in Wild Rift and looking for a few pointers to help you get started? Well, you're in luck, as our guide on the Starchild will help you become a master of the botlane in no time at all!
Whether you're playing aggressively or defensively, Aery is a rune that will always pay off nicely on a support mage/healer like Soraka. This champion's kit will force you to play reactively on the backfoot and heal your allies.
Champion is another great choice for this playstyle, as it will let you engage in some risky early-game trades. Its 10% damage bonus to enemy champions will give you a big advantage when it comes to poke-fights during the laning phase.
Loyalty is a very practical choice, as you'll rarely find yourself alone on the map, given that your kit is best used to protect a carry.
Finally, Manaflow Band in blue, allows you to gradually build up a mana buffer that comes in handy when spamming your spells.
Here's the optimal skill order for Soraka. Max our her abilities in the order outlined below, but don't forget to rank up her ultimate whenever you can.
Soraka is such a healing-focused champion that it's actually a good idea to take Summoner Spell Heal on her. Make sure you ask your AD Carry to take Exhaust or Barrier.
Starter Items and Boots
The items you buy will vary from game to game, depending on the composition of the enemy team. We've put together a list of the best items for Soraka, ranked by their importance to this champ. Items in bold are essential purchases that you'll opt for in the vast majority of your games.
Tips and Tricks
