Summoner Spells Back to Top

I personally prefer Flash+TP, just because I am not a huge fan of Ghost but any combination of the three should work well.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

These are the optimal runes, with CotC to give you that nice big shield. I take Expose weakness and Fearless for team fights, but you can use their alternatives if you want to be even stronger in lane.

Skill your E only when your jungler decides he wants to gank you, since it's useless otherwise. I skill Q pre 6 for the lower CD so i can heal more, but then transition to skilling my W for more offence, defence and team fight advantage. If you have the feeling that you are using your E more often than you can, feel free to max it before your Q.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Take Cull for a more offensive lane where you out-range the enemy toplaner and can farm easily
    Take Doran's Shield if the enemy toplaner has a lot of poke, range etc. so you have more lane sustain.

Core Items

    BoRK is a great item in the toplane since you will be against enemies with a lot of health most of the time and can damage them easily and heal up
    Frozen Mallet helps you with the huge amount of health it offers and lets you kite enemies even better

Situational Items

    This is a nice item for Rakan due to its hight AS, which lets you apply more on-hit effects and gives you a nice portion of MR
    Runaan's gives you the possibility to apply on-hit effects to 3 enemies at once, meaning 3 people are slowed and taking a lot of damage from BoRK's passive
    Black Cleaver is a nice item for Rakan when team fights are of longer duration or when your team has a lot of AD. The CDR it offers also helps you be more mobile and have more presence in fights
    This is a great item if you need more armor because it not only gives you a lot of it, but it also gives you a good portion of health and MS
    This is a good alternative to Wit's End if your team has only one AP champ, because it makes you a lot tankier and lets you use your abilities more often
    Boots of Swiftness are good if the enemies have a lot of slows, Ninja Tabi if they are full AD or have a lot of auto-based champs and Mercury's are best when they have a lot of CC or high damaging AP champs

Matchups Back to Top

Why is Off-Tank Rakan viable? Back to Top

  • Rakan can make his enemies unable to take action for a deciding amount of time in which he can outtrade or potentially kill them
  • He has an advantage on toplane due to his higher range and yet he is tanky
  • The AoE on-hit effects are an enourmous help in team fights

Thank you Back to Top

Thanks for taking you time and looking into this off-meta way of building/playing Rakan; I hope you enjoy trying it out sometime! If you have any questions or notes you would like to add to this guide, you can gladly use the comment section below.
