I have a very good hit rate with Q, but it feels like it does very little even with a heavy AP page.

The problem is that you think Soraka is good at poking, when she is not that much, or there are much better options for that.. I prefer playing Soraka as a HEALER, because that what she is, that's why I choose to max W, it will improve both my Q and W heal and Q won't make me go oom so quickly because it will have a low rank. If you're looking for a support that excels at doing damage then don't play Soraka..

But how can you position when you need to be literally 400 range away from you carry? It's worse than Sona and her Aura.

You use Equinox right after they gap closing in, or before they do. It prevents any further combo and pretty much guarantee a snare. If it's a ranged type, land it on them before the ranged CC skill shot hits. PRevents any further chaining and burst combo.

If you're using Equinox to initiate or to poke, you're already doing it wrong. Equinox is for follow-up on AoE CC (No flash allow, guaranteed Snare with huge base damage) or to prevent engage.


lol wut?

If you call that kind of damage which also comes with enough heal for one more W not worth, no wonder you're consistent when it comes to having poor performance.

I rarely take damage in lane and rarely have to heal my ADC in lane. And other supports seem to do significantly more damage more easily. Again if you want to add me and show me go for it.

Stop treating Q as another "Get me kills" move. You don't even have a utility mage-support mind set.

What does this even mean?

If it's someone like Sona then obv she will outdamage you, she's a mage-support. She uses passive and Q for damage.

Every support has their own niche. Sona is an all-around mage type. Soraka is the cockclocking cancerous heal and poke type. If there's any GD I played with around reading this, they can confirm just how cancerous my raka is as both support and mid.

Soraka only has 1 reliable damage source. Q. The Q damage is huge but even then, 330 potential burst damage is NOT enough for a kill. She's not a Sona or a Lulu who can even solo the other side easily when ahead as support.
