Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Flash is and always will be op, use it to combo with ult and w for sick engages in teamfights and skirmishes


14.png Ignite because you dont have much kill pressure in lane without it and your objective is to make it out of lane even or potentially ahead and crush teamfights with all your utility and peel


12.pngtake this for bad matchups that can shove u to turret early on like aurelion sol maybe taliyah etc. also useful if you want to play safer early game and play for tp/mid game engages.

3.png exhaust against potentially zed/talon or something very bursty but ive never taken it because i think the lane phase usually isnt especially bad for rakan if played well 

11.png the clear is just so bad. the ganks are great with red buff and w and once you have r its gauranteed but the clear is bad, and agro junglers can take advantage you, the clear does get better once you get a cinderhulk but that takes a while especially if you rush mobility boots.

Masteries Back to Top

TLD is my mastery of choice. In laning phase ill look to proc it by W'ing in auto'ing and then Q for the TLD proc is solid harass and then just back out and dodge abilities and you should have a good trade. Once you have ult TLD helps alot in all-in's. You can also proc it with protobelt and Q later on. I go back and forth between 12 points in the Resolve tree and 12 in Ferocity. Ferocity helps you trade and fight a little bit but Resolve gives you that sweet summoner spell cdr.

Deathfire Touch as your Q is single target and is what you'll be maxing first so adding a bit of dmg onto that is very nice. Also this mastery is probably more effective later on in the game than TLD as far as dps goes.

his passive is straight up OP the cooldown is quite long early on but does help lane a lot, if possible you want to wait until this is up before you go to trade as to get the best possible trade, late game this shield is on a 10 second cooldown reduced by 1s for abilities and autos you hit so if you hit a w on 4 it will reduce the cd by 4. it has 200 base health and a &0% ap ratio so you're almost a tank late game with a 600 health shield on a 10s cd that can be lowered

starting w because its pretty hard to hit q on the first wave and you can sneak in a w/auto attack combo for like 150 dmg lvl 1 which is pretty hard to counter if done right

lvls 2/3 maxing q which you want to try to hit your opponent with as much as possible weaving a w into q auto when you can for some harass that cant be traded with. dont forget your q heals so if played right you can heal yourself up while dmging the enemy its pretty strong and scales by 70% ap on a less than 4 second cd which is rediculous late game and your adc should never die if they arent completely shit at positioning

maxing q is pretty strong because its your only free harass that doesnt put you in danger as well as lowering the cooldown to 6 seconds at lvl 9 without cdr so its a pretty spammable 300+ dmg at that point if you can hit it

ult is extremely good for going all in once you've whittled their health bar down to about half health or maybe 2/3 health and then activating R into instantly w into them which will charm them and prevent them from running blinking or flashing from the knock up  following that with Q, Protobelt, Ignite and some auto attacks and they are dead.

lvl up e once you start teamfighting 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    dark seal for early game because you need the extra health pot as you'll constantly be trading during early lane to establish dominance/show them you're not a pussy
    i usually build CD boots because flash is a very important cd to have up on him and his cds are just pretty long so cdr is very good on him

Core Items

    i rush protobelt every game for waveclear just w the melee creeps and belt through them to the range creeps and it should one shot the wave. then i go for ludens because it speeds up your ult and you can build up ludens stacks very quickly with all your mobility
    banshees against ap heavy teams or teams with a lot of ways to interrupt your w, ie thresh flay zhonyas against an ad heavy team
    rabadong if you get ahead early and want that big dmg after ludens
    void for the mr stackers
    I think this is a good item while snowballing. If you have a good early game buy this after protobelt but if not maybe save it for a 5th or 6th buy or not at all
    this item is completely broken if you're snowballing out of control, but if you die it feels super bad so only buy this is you're positive you're going to have some good teamfights and you won't die

Situational Items

This is my current build that i'm using, however my build is constantly being tweaked so gimme some suggestions/thoughts in the comments

VS

Ahri

Medium

ahri isnt too bad you can lock her up with your rakanr.pngrakanw.pngcombo and quickly delete her if played right in teamfights but her charm can stop your wrakane.png in its tracks if timed right so be wary of that. try to hit your qrakanq.png whenever she goes to harass you in lane

VS

Akali

Hard

pretty rough she can jump on you can kill you pretty easily if played right but you can lock her down and potentially win in the early laning phase. she outsustains you and this lane isn't much fun

VS

Anivia

Medium

protobelt for waveclear is very important in this matchup you can call for ganks and kill her easily with rakanr.pngrakanw.png though

VS

Annie

Medium

not a great matchup early game but its possible to kill her/be more impactful in teamfights

VS

Aurelion Sol

Medium

his waveclear is rough early game you might have issues just make sure to ping mia and get protobelt as quickly as possible trading is pretty easy as you can w right under him and take no dmg from him until running away

VS

Ekko

Medium

this is a decent matchup and you can combo him to lock him down for 2 seconds and try to prevent him from ulting

VS

Fizz

Medium

not too bad just try to do short trades and dont let him get that fizzw.pngorfizze.png on you in lane phase and definitely dont let him fizzr.png you  because you're gonna have a bad time

VS

Jayce

Medium

jayce is just op in the lane phase so as long as you make it out you should be fine but not recommended to take this matchup

VS

Kassadin

Medium

you can beat him very easily pre 6 and maybe even cheese a kill on him and set up very far behind, other than that you can rakanr.pngrakanw.png him and stop his mobility however after lane phase and later on in the game you don't stand a chance in a 1v1.

VS

Katarina

Medium

another decent matchup i've actually beaten quite a few kats 1v1 as rakan with his sick mobility just beware of her lvl 2/3 cheese its stronger than yours. dodge her passive early game and if possible in teamfights lock her down for the team before she can have a huge impact

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

not a bad matchup at all but a good leblanc might just shit on you anyways poke her with q as much as possible because you wont be able to hit a w on her without ult most likely. i like this matchup i've beat a lot of over confident leblanc's even in the early game and you scale better than her

VS

Lucian

Medium

not too awful take tp and farm, you can lock him down for jg ganks

VS

Orianna

Medium

you cant really trade with her very well she just barely out ranges you and if you w in she will whoop your ass as you walk out

VS

Rakan

Hard

watch out rakan shits on you

VS

Ryze

Easy

easy matchup you can easily out trade him but he obviously scales really well and can shove you to tower until you get protobelt

VS

Syndra

Medium

not too bad i have a certain page with extra mr for bitches like syndra

VS

Talon

Easy

just dump on him pls you trade much better

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

easy lane phase into protobelt into hopefully easy counter roams/1v1s. watch out thought he can stop you mid W with a gold card.

VS

Veigar

Medium

veigars pretty rough the lane phase is easy but his stun stops your w obviously so thats quite unlucky

VS

Vladimir

Medium

VS

Xerath

Hard

VS

Zed

Medium

skill matchup rush seekers after protobelt not a bad matchup at all i've 1v1d a lot of cocky zeds that dont go hexdrinker
