Soraka, the Starchild, is a support champion that is designed to heal allies at the cost of her own HP. As a champion, she is quite easy to play but requires some game knowledge in terms of positioning, when to go in, when to trade, and so on. If you don’t position accordingly as Soraka, you will end up dying a lot, since she’s very squishy and easy to kill, especially in the early game.
When you want to play a support champion that can pretty much cancel all-ins on her team (with her Skill 3), keeps allies alive at all costs, and provides plenty of utility, then I’d definitely recommend her. However, due to her low defenses (low Armor, Magic Resist, and not that much HP in the early game), I recommend you test her out in a few normal games before taking her into ranked matches.
Thus being said, once you master Soraka’s kit, she can be one of the most powerful end-game supports. She will have unlimited heals, and while she’s alive, no allies will die on her watch!

League of Legends: Wild Rift Soraka skills
Soraka runs faster towards nearby low health allies.
Starcall (Skill 1)
A star falls from the sky at the target location dealing magic damage and slowing enemies. If an enemy champion is hit by Starcall, Soraka recovers Health.
Astral Infusion (Skill 2)
Soraka sacrifices a portion of her own health to heal another friendly champion.
Equinox (Skill 3)
Creates a zone at a location that silences all enemies inside. When the zone expires, all enemies still inside are rooted.
Wish (Skill 4 / Ultimate)
Soraka fills her allies with hope, instantly restoring health to herself and all friendly champions.
How to combo as Soraka:
Although Soraka doesn’t have any crazy combos, there are a couple of things you could do to fully benefit from her kit. For instance, there is a skill succession you can do, which can cancel enemy all-ins and restore your HP at the same time. But it’s best I explain everything below:
– Skill 1 -> Skill 3
This is a mini-combo you could do when an enemy is running towards you or your ally. With Skill 1 you will slow the opponents in the area, gain some extra movement speed and restore some HP, and if you quickly follow up with Skill 3, you will be able to silence the enemies that have been slowed by your Skill 1.
– Skill 3 -> Skill 1
If enemies linger for too long inside your Skill 3, they will get rooted and you can then cast your Skill 1 to regen some HP. This combo is especially useful in team fights when enemies will not always pay attention to the ground beneath their feet, so they’ll be vulnerable to Soraka’s silence/root.
– Skill 2 -> Skill 1 (on the opponent) -> Skill 2
If you want to have somewhat of a “free heal”, you can cast your Astral Infusion (Skill 2) on an ally to heal them, then attack an opponent with Skill 1 to get back some of that HP, and then heal your ally some more.
– Take advantage of Soraka’s passive to run towards injured allies
This passive great for both joining fights, or running away from them. Just run towards the ally with the lowest HP (there will be a mark underneath Soraka which will point you in the direction of the low HP ally), and don’t heal them right away if you still want to benefit from the speed buff.
In what order to level up the skills?
Leveling up her skills is pretty standard. You want to prioritize Skill 2, the heal, as well as Skill 1, for the HP you gain back. Then, you can complete leveling up Skill 3.
Level 1: Skill 1
Level 2: Skill 2
Level 3: Skill 3
Level 4: Skill 2
Level 5: Skill 4
Level 6: Skill 2
Level 7: Skill 1
Keep leveling Skill 2 until it’s maxed, then focus on Skill 1, and lastly on Skill 3. Of course, whenever you can, you want to add 1 point into your Skill 4 (ultimate).

Boots of Swiftness are an alternative to Ionian Boots of Lucidity if you want to have more movement speed rater than Ability Haste.
Redemption is the best one for Soraka (more healing).
