Soraka's viability
I hate how soraka's viability is 100% team dependent. If randoms choose to pick champs that are subpar, she ends up being useless. Soraka also needs to be fed (lots of assists) in order to be remotely useful. I love her, I just wish she was a bit better.

RE: Soraka's viability
Wut, guess you never played with me, I'm a team killer man! Soraka mid with mejai! and just constantly spammin wish Biggrin pulling assists from all over just because I healed. And before starcall was nerfed in range and AP, that thing was beastly, got a few penta-kills with it.

Soraka imo CAN be team dependent, but its all about how you play, I'm an aggressive soraka, starcall is the sexiest skill ever, decent range and excellent harass if you bother to get some decent ap at the start. Then you just keep harassing letting the MR debuff stack constantly increasing your silence damage and starcall.

Eh, I only really play Soraka when my brother can duo norms with me; I just harass with Wish/silence and he plays Tryndamere or someone that needs heavy farm; I even get him to go clear mini-golems/wolves when the creeps are pushed too far, making sure he gets all the XP

Soraka just feels too squishy earlygame (gets bursted down too fast, invis gankers etcetc)

and since she's support and all, I dont bring flash. (Flash without ghost is kinda bad imo, so I usually just bring ghost)

RE: Soraka's viability
Soraka's not especially team dependant, at least not any more than any other support.

When I see my brother play Soraka, he doesn't level up Starcall until he has to; he prefers to rely on the Infuse silence+damage to give his enemies a long-range snipe and keep the harass up.

If you play aggressively, you don't have to rely nearly as much on your teammates- you can harass your enemies, keep your allies healed, and heal from across the map. It's hard to feed and keep screwing up when you have a good support on your team, which is one of the reasons that support keeps getting nerfed xD

RE: Soraka's viability
I would say that Soraka isn't entirely team dependant at least when it comes to the comp of the team, though a team that uses MP is always good.

A team that can keep her alive and make the best out of her buffs and debuffs plus heals is what I'd say is a requirement. Otherwise, it's like playing support with four assassins.
