Idk if it's being worked on or nobody cares but I think it's kinda lame quite frankly. Shouldn't be that hard to update it to something better or more interesting at least.

If we do end up making changes to Soraka at some point her passive would definitely be a prime spot to do some work, agree there's plenty of room there to make something more engaging. The current one's certainly not useless, there's only a tiny amount of gameplay associated with it though, and even then the power it offers is pretty hardly to directly appreciate. Would be inclined to look at passives that support her healer with some combat effects playstyle in a way that didn't buff her passive sustain (which has been the big problem we've had in the past with her).

Soraka has an MR+ passive for nearby allies.
problem is that AD is becoming more popular these days.

But so is double AP. The main problem is that the MR is almost useless botlane, where most of the damage is AD.

I actually like her passive though. It allows her to be a nightmare solo laner against AP Assassins. Start game, grab a null magic mantle, and just stroll in to lane with over 60 MR as you point and laugh at Ahri/Kassadin's pitiful damage against you.

With the removal of Runic Bulwark and the whole DFG/Voidstaff thing we've got going on in every game, having someone with an AoE MR buff isn't such a bad thing. It also compliments the MR shred on her Q (which you should never touch). She'll take yours away and give it to her friends.

Actually, that's not a bad idea. Instead of just shredding MR from targets, Soraka steals it with her Q and gives some of it to herself and nearby allies.

her passive feel underwhelming, maybe make it scales to each level?

or rework to something like random blessing/heal a champion nearby that under 50% health?

As long as we're talking about Soraka, Meddler, could you check out this discussion I've made?

http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com...961&highlight=

It's a discussion suggesting the possibility of making Soraka's heal increase based on her target's missing health (with some tweaking to the base amount). Worse for sustain, better for clutch.

Ooooh, I like that. Make it half of what she shreds, though, or it's way too OP.

Every time Soraka uses a skill she does a Tiamat-like wave of healing around her?
