Soraka and Nunu any good anymore?

Haven't seen them around at all lately for support.

Soraka doesn't support the aggressive playstyle of bot lane atm, Nunu is still good imo, people overreact to nerfs.

They're fine. Nunu still brings a lot to the table you don't get from other supports. Soraka isn't bad but Lulu fills some of the same purpose and has been amazing since she was released. Now that people have caught on to Lulu though she is getting nerfs, so Soraka will be a bit better off.

Soraka is amazing early game, and can keep your ADC in lane forever. It's jsut that she's very passive, and not very good when it comes to team fights.

They both just fill more niche roles now imo. I don't use Nunu unless I got an ADC who has an on-hit like Vayne or Kog. In those cases, we pretty much always win lane and usually the game.

Raka is still good. It's tough to kill a lane with Soraka. Many of them take the heal SS for 3 heals post 6, one giving a significant armor buff. A lot of people say she makes laning stale, but with her mana restore and heal, I argue that she allows your ADC to be much more aggressive. If you have someone like Graves, Trist, or Cait who love spamming spells in lane, you can really make stuff happen with Raka as your support. I guess it's just a different kind of aggression or rather it makes your ADC more aggressive rather than the support as in Leo or Taric's case.

Thanks for the advice! I think I'll mostly just play Soraka against a Lulu/Zyra/Lux lane and Nunu probably against Taric/Thresh or whenever I have a AD that'll really benefit from his buff.

Also I forgot to mention Nunu is good AGAINST those same adc due to snowball's AS debuff.

Nunu is an excellent jungle and still a competitive support tthat's under played now.

Soraka doesn't really fit the meta, but she can still be played well with a duo partner.
