Rakan's Trends

Playing against Rakan

Key Insights
Hitting enemy champions with autos and abilities reduce
P
's cooldown by 1 second for each enemy hit.
E
's shield doesn't stack -- it only refreshes its duration and shields.
If Xayah is on Rakan's team, he can use
E
on her from an increased range, and they can recall together.
For the first 0.5 seconds of
R
,
W
cannot be used.
When Rakan tags an enemy with
R
, he gains 75% additional bonus movespeed.
Strengths
Excels at all-ins and setting up fights.
Timing his aggression with
P
will help him win most trades.
Can engage from a distance and get back to safety with
E
's second cast.
Synergizes well with
Shurelya's Battlesong
,
Zeke's Convergence
,
Redemption
,
Knight's Vow
, and
Staff of Flowing Water
. Can opt for
Locket of the Iron Solari
,
Evenshroud
, or
Moonstone Renewer
when needed.
Weaknesses
While he likes to dive, Rakan is not very tanky until he completes at least one item.
W
and
E
have longer cooldowns of 16 and 20 at rank 1. Once used, he can be punished.
W
and
E
can be interrupted.
Forcing Rakan to use
R
defensively lowers his teamfighting potential since he'll have less playmaking capabilities.
