Introduction

Hello, I'm Zypharion and this is my Rek'Sai guide.


Guide Top

Spells

Flash is pretty much standard on 90% of all champions.
Smite is must have in the current jungle.

Items

Jungle Item: I prefer the over the because I like the attack speed and extra damage of the over the flat ad damage and armor penetration of the because Rek'Sai most damage is from the apart from that, the extra attack speed and on hit damage does more overal damage than the flat ad.

Trinket: I get the yellow one first and switch it to the red one on my first back.

Trinity Force: The is insane on Rek'Sai in combination with her Q and the movement speed buff it gives so the enemy can't escape you.

Boots: I like the on Rek'Sai for the tenacity so you can still keep up with the enemy even if they slow you.

Tank: After the and the I go get defensive items. The order of getting these items depends on the enemy team. If they mostly deal pysical damage get armor first, if they mostly deal Magic damage get magic resist first.

1. I take the Q first because it's your main damage, aoe so easier first clear, and has a short cooldown.

2. I take my W second so I can burrow and generate health from the fury I have build up from clearing the first buff.

3. I max my Q first because it's your main damage and synergizes wel with your .

4. I max my W last because I prefer the damage increase and shorter cooldown on my E over the more damage unborrow from my W.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
- Fast clear speed.
- Good jungle sustain thanks to her W.
- One of the best gankers in game.
- Has good escapes.
- Snowballs really hard, even when building tanky.

Cons:
- Her ult doesn't do anything in teamfights.

Jungle Route

I always start at my Red because the blue buff doesn't really do much for Rek'Sai since she doesn't use mana and has low base cooldowns. After red I go for the wolves and then take the blue buff before I recall and get my smite upgrade and switch my yellow for a red trinket. After that I mostly start looking to gank. Since Rek'Sai can make the tunnels when burrowed she has some more unique ganking paths than some other more straightforward junglers like and .


Guide Top

Team Work

Here is were Rek'Sai excels because she can Unburrow under a grouped up team and knock them all up and start doing aoe damage thanks to her Q so her team can easily follow up. And since CC wins teamfights this champion is a born teamfighter.

End

I hope you all enjoyed my guide on Rek'Sai. I know some items of the build might seem weird to some but this is just how I like to play Rek'Sai and were I had succes on.
