So... what's wrong with Soraka mid? XD

The chance to build up is so nice! Soraka with Rylai's, GA, Zhonya's, and either massive HP or other random buffs makes her so annoying xD I kept getting in games with really odd compositions, like all melee and 1 adc, but the melee call bot... so I mid as Soraka and almost always get the first blood too >_> NO ONE EXPECTS SORAKA!

But back to the topic title, the one or two people who actually talk before locking in tell me "omg, don't choose Soraka she is so bad mid!"

I bet to differ...

Granted, I wouldn't choose her mid if we actually had a support on bot.

She dominates her lane hard, but is absolutely useless outside of that. Provides pretty much nothing in teamfights/utility when compared to more typical mids.

So she and Yorick are good buds.

O_o says who!? I can still heal, silence, and my Q is kind of insanely powerful from not building as support. Plus whatever item buffs I have to offer!! Plus, people like to focus me first, which Zhonya's and GA fix completely.

Zero burst damage, and the heal means nothing when your team is already dead from lacking the DPS overall.

Pushes lane and can't escape when a jungler ganks without flash.
0 roaming capabilities
0 teamfight presence

because people always underestimate the value of a pusher/healer
If Pluto is not a planet Europe is just West Asia.

She can push hard. Other than that, she doesn't do offensive well. Might work if you are deliberately playing split hard pushing for early turret gold as the way to win, but yeah...

doesnt her q help if your team is very heavy on ap?

Soraka summons a shower of stars to strike all nearby enemies, dealing magic damage to them and reducing their magic resist (8/9/10/11/12) for 5 seconds (effect stacks up to 10 times).

reduction iirc can take your resist below 0 so they take more than true dmg.... right?

If you're fielding Soraka mid you definitely need to make up for damage and CC somewhere else.
