Currently my champions of choice seem to be, in order of most well played, Anavia - Annie - Malphite - Soraka

For my team my 2 choices are Anavia and Soraka, so those are the runes I want to focus on getting first. I play Anavia to stun/nuke/gank. Going Tear, Merc Tread, RoA asap.

For Soraka I'm fully support hitting 40% CD with items.

What are the most useful runes? My early game is great, I rarely die and manage to get off a lot of damage and kills champion and skill depending, but I still can't decide what runes would benefit me most.

As of now I have a Tier 3 run speed and a bunch of IP until I figure out where to do.

I have no idea what my ELO is, and it's probably nowhere near top, so sorry if I'm not welcome in this thread, but I personally am enjoying the mana regen runes. I've got static mana regen in the red and blue slots, and per-level ones in the blues. At the moment it's allowing me to spam my abilities in the early game on casters and non-casters alike.

Clarity runes in blue are never a bad idea if you find yourself having mana troubles, and your also on the right track with the 40% CD runebook, though im not 100% sure thats what you want for soraka. One thing that i would suggest is getting some MR runes.

For Soraka, cooldown reduction is effective mana regen.

Quints of movespeed are fine, health being the other common choice. Definitely want MR runes in atleast yellow slots, and potentially worth considering in other slots as well. Defensive runes seem to be popular among top players in general, with the exception of physical carries who certainly benefit from crit damage or ArP.

Where are you getting this information? Defensive runes would make sense, but how much benefit do you truly gain? +10-15 MR overall?

for soraka, you should be getting soul shroud and frozen heart, so -cd runes aren't necessary as the items put you at the 40% cap. I like MR, Armor, or dodge on soraka.

The thing I like the most on Soraka is static HP Regen. It allows you to put off taking Astral blessing for as long as possible, letting you take enough levels of Infuse/Starcall to be an effective early farmer/harasser. Static MP regen is also useful, but I find between Infuse and the Mana Manipulator that it's a bit overkill.

as soraka you might want to consider stacking magic pen, i figure it would stack well with her starfall spam.

Magic resist runes are really a very good choice right now.

The health quints are great as well.

I personally am running a full t3 magic resist page at the moment. It works on every champion, is a good way to spend IP before you can afford runes for 5 custom pages, and is very strong in the current aoe gangbang metagame.
