Wouldn't a stacking mana cost work better than a huge health cost on Soraka's W?

I would think that the best way to balance W would be to give it the Kassadin treatment. That way, even if you built a ton of mana, you would OOM quickly if you spam-healed too much.

Was that considered? If so, why wasn't it a good solution?

I dunno, Kassadin still OOM's pretty fast if he Riftwalks too much, and he builds a ton of mana items.

It works for him. Why not for Soraka?

it depends on how long the CD is to reset her mana cost, how much the mana cost increases by and whats her base mana

Sounds like a ticket to oppressive solo lane Soraka.

A stacking mana cost wouldn't work as well on Soraka. Because you aren't going to be spamming heal, the stacking wouldn't affect you unless the stacks took 1+ min to wear off. Add that to chalice and/or tear to reduce the effect of the mana stack and it becomes negligible.

It could also affect the ratio.
So it gets bigger & cost more.

But I think it should be a flat hp cost with a stacking system.
