[12.1] Rek'sai guide from a EUW Grandmaster Jungler Zehmox!

By Zehmox

more accomplishments

Hey everyone!I am Zehmox I have been playing Rek'sai since her release and we have seen alot off changes to her. my peak rank was Grandmaster on EUW. If you have any question on my guide feel free to join my stream or discord!

This is my first guide and i tried to keep it clean and simple.

Newest Rek'sai gameplay!

Reksai Nerfs: with the recent reksai nerfs her E got hit. usually i almost always max Q anyways so im not really hurt by it.


Sterak gage nerf makes us buy deathsdance instead, play around it with our new DD passive and secure an assist or kill with it

Cleaver vs lord doms. whenever your team drafted full AD or heavy AD i would skip Deaths dance for cleaver because it brings more value to your team apply it for your ADC in the teamfight to the frontline tank and enjoy the Black Cleavers unique passive.

When to buy lord doms? well whenever the enemy has a **** load of tanks and cleaver doesn't bring much value for your team. even an ezreal with frozen heart and Ninja tabi its a good item against.

When to buy serpent fang?

if i wanna go full assassin Rek'sai i usually buy this item 2nd or 3rd item whenever im vs multiple Shieldbows or champions like lulu/karma and with big build in shields with Sterak Gage. great cost efficient item and you can apply it for your team if you hit your Prey Seeker

Vs alot of AP heavy champions 1 sterak gage is usually not enough that's why i add in these 3 options. even tho the abyssal mask change its still a good item to provide for your team and the stats it give makes Rek'sai a little bit more tankier in the mid/lategame and with the 2-3 lethality items you usually oneshot the adc or support anyways so more damage is kinda overkill.

Spirit Visage: i usually get whenever i have a soraka/yuumi or other healers in my team + when ocean soul is nearing or secured. The UNIQUE passive provides alot off extra healing for Triumph and healing overall.

Force of Nature: gives a great magicresist boost and reduces the incoming burst by 20% if at full stacks so surviving burst vs eve/ekko or any other AP assassin is easily avoidable

Hexdrinker: great early pickup still but with the items changes it delays your powerspike for prowlers claw. i usually rush prowlers claw and if i still need hexdrinker i get it right after my prowler claw combined with Mercs it gives a great boost off MR in the early/midgame. but i don't tend to build Maw of Malmortius because there are better magic resist options given above

in Season 12 we have Axiom Arc. i usually get this item after Prowlers Claw if i don't need Edge of Knight and i want to completely snowball further in the early game. it makes you extremely Squishy and it is very risky to pull off but if you manage to play with these 2 items correctly your ult is up after 2kills again.

usually if your team struggles i get an executioners but try to not get it and tell the person in your team that can apply grievous wounds easier to get healing reduction. applying it with rek'sai feels clunky to do and this is not your job.

Exceptions are buying it vs nunu/olaf/mundo

Pros / Cons

Pros and cons


Great early game

always able to oneshot a squishy

good tunnel management leads to great efficiency

Your midlaners love you

Can build Bruiser or Assassin

Able to 1v9 played correctly

Strong ganks

Able to disrupt divers from your carries.



Weak if behind

easy to counter by Zhonyas/guardians

Takes skill to teamfight with

90% off the time you use Blue smite. why? you gapclose on the enemy with the slow to get an easy knockup off. also nimbus cloak can proc it for extra mov speed

Against champions that you know you lose duels but win with red smite you should take redsmite from the start especially if you are playing for mid/jungle synergy
