Rakan Matchups Overview
Rakan General information
Ensure that you do not let the enemy poke you down with basic attacks or abilities. If they’re able to poke you down, you’ll never be able to engage with your W.
You’ll be unable to run directly at the enemy with your Ultimate R to start a team fight. Flanking from the side is the best way to team fight on Rakan. Run in with your Ultimate R active, knock the enemy up with your W and then escape with your E.
Rakan is a solid roaming champion. You could look to roam from base to help your Mid laner get a kill. Roaming from lane to assist your Jungler is also easy on Rakan. Before roaming, always make sure your ADC will be safe and will not die while you’re gone.
Every combo you need to master the champion!
