Best Runes Setup and Spells for Soraka in Wild Rift

Font of Life
The Font of Life is Soraka´s core rune since she is all about giving her team maximum healing. The rune can be activated with her first and third ability and synergizes very well with her second ability.
There are more than one options in this category to choose from with each having their own purpose. With Brutal, Soraka gets a boost in her early game making her poke a little stronger.
This rune will help with sustainability during the laning phase and teamfights. Especially when Soraka has to sacrifice her own health for her teammates. With Second Wind you regain some health after a while which is a great help for the self-sacrificing Soraka.
Like the second rune category, there are also other possible runes to choose from which work for Soraka like Manaflow. Choosing Sweeth Tooth will not only increase the Honeyfruit healing effects but also gives you and your ally some extra gold. And since Soraka is the one support which has the Honeyfruit priority it synergizes with her well.
- Flash – Flash is almost every champion’s 1st summoner spell, especially for someone being as vulnerable as Soraka is.
- Either Exhaust or Heal – It depends on your own playstyle and what spell your ADC is taking. For an aggressive playstyle or if you have strong early game opponents you might take exhaust if your ADC already took Heal. Taking Heal is beneficial if your Duo partner has Barrier and if you consider synergizing with items such as Harmonic for example.

League of Legends: Wild Rift Soraka Gameplay Tips
We already established that Soraka is a Support best suited to being played in the Dragon Lane. Always remember that the Wild Rift’s Map is a mirror so make sure you understand the map side before starting to lane. According to her gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our League of Legends: Wild Rift Soraka guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.
Soraka´s early game depends on the way your ADC wants to play the lane and how your opponent’s champion picks are. If your ADC picked a strong early game champion and the enemy´s support is also an enchanter, you can play aggressively. By being brave and stepping out for some poking trades you can make it easier for your ADC to pick up kills or farm in peace For self-pealing ADC´s like Draven or Vayne you can lean back and work as a healing safety net keeping their health bar always up.
Soraka in the battlefield
This changes though if you have a weaker ADC and the enemy´s support is a tank. This is the time where you have to play defensive and wait for your Jungler to gank since Soraka is very vulnerable. Usually, the enemy will try to pick on your first so always be careful of your positioning,
Soraka is not traditional roaming support since she is very squishy and a preferred target for the enemy jungler. So be careful if you counter gank or go for a roaming opportunity. In general, Soraka´s gameplay is usually very defensive. Always make sure you position yourself in the backline of your team. This is very important during team fights such as the first dragon fight. Other then that try to be with your team as much as possible, since being on your own is very risky.
After a successful mid-game Soraka can do a lot of options: staying with her ADC to keep them secure, roam around with the jungler and looking for kills, or support the whole team in general. Soraka´s uniqueness comes from her unlimited ranged Ultimate, which heals everyone on the map.

At the late game after buying the necessary items Soraka is able to spam her abilities more often since the health loss will not be as much as before. But be careful of your own health when supporting your allies!
You might want to try the following specific skill combos like this to unleash her full potential and use Soraka to your advantage.

Soraka could technically be played with a lot of ADC but she truly forms the strongest pairs and serves as Best Combos with Tristana, Draven, and Vayne.
Soraka is a support of its purest form. Her main purpose in-game as well as in her lore is to protect and support her teammates as much as possible. On her own, she is pretty weak and vulnerable and can easily be picked out. Soraka´s playstyle is very much passive and staying in the backline. Her Ultimate can help out everyone on the map at any time which is unique. Nevertheless Soraka is very dependent on the team composition and can be countered by having Ignite or buying anti-heal items. So picking Soraka should always be well taught!
