  • Two years after brushing up her visuals, we’re taking a second look at the goatiest of champions, Soraka! This time the Champion Update team’s focusing on her gameplay, so while her bananas stay the same, we’re updating and tweaking a few of her abilities. Here’s the rundown! Abilities Salvation File:Salvation.png Soraka gains significant movement speed when she moves towards heavily wounded allies. |-|Q= Starcall File:Starcall.png Soraka calls down a meteor at a target location, damaging all enemies caught by the explosion and dealing extra damage and a to enemies directly under the impact. |-|W= Astral Infusion File:Astral Infusion.png * Soraka heals herself whenever she hits an enemy champion with File:Starcall.png Starcall. * Soraka sacrifices to heal a nearby ally. |-|E= Equinox File:Equinox.png Soraka briefly conjures a celestial zone at a target location. Enemies standing above the zone are until they leave, while if they’re standing above Equinox when it collapses, they’re briefly . |-|R= Wish File:Wish.png Soraka summons a global heal for all allied champions. Laning File:SorakaSquare.png Soraka’s a support who works best in the immediate proximity of her marksman. Here she can keep her lane partner healthy with File:Astral Infusion.png Astral Infusion before turning to File:Starcall.png Starcall to damage the enemy bot lane champions and restore some of her own health. File:Equinox.png Equinox has serious potential to win trades, too – casting it beneath an enemy AD caster (File:GravesSquare.png Graves and File:VarusSquare.png Varus, for example) greatly reduces their damage output, while using it beneath the enemy support cuts off their ability to use their array of abilities and summoner spells. File:Equinox.png Equinox can be a lifesaver when the enemy jungler comes in to gank, too. Whenever Soraka casts the portal along the jungler’s attack route, she effectively forces them to choose between a longer gank path and the ability’s silence/snare field. Additionally, if her marksman is already close to death but closer to the relative safety of their tower, then the speed boost from File:Salvation.png Salvation helps Soraka motor away from her enemies. Of course, if all else fails, Soraka can break the emergency glass and hit the big red File:Wish.png Wish button to buy her allies a few extra seconds of life. Teamfights Soraka’s teamfight presence relies on sharp decision-making and making the most of File:Astral Infusion.png Astral Infusion’s extremely low cooldown. Though she’s generally better off sticking close to – and healing up – her team’s backline, File:Salvation.png Salvation gives her enough movement speed to fly to the frontline and heal her suffering tanks. This presents risks, though: without the extra movement speed, she returns to her team’s backline – and safety – relatively slowly, giving the enemy team plenty of opportunities to wade in and cut her down. Soraka can diminish this threat by casting File:Equinox.png Equinox on the battle’s frontline, hopefully dissuading all but the most determined assassins from bursting through to kill her. Finally, File:Wish.png Wish has enough raw power to turn around seemingly lost fights. Timing is critical: using it early on tops off health and keeps the momentum of a fight in your team’s hands, but saving it until the last moment grants significantly more health and can fully dispirit a confident enemy team.
