Threats & Synergies
She can dodge your shit. Not nice after level 6, plus if you get charmed AND she dodges your W, you're screwed. Farm passively, wait for ganks.
Yikes. Good luck with this shit, you can try to poke, but expect him to go all in. Just farm, be safe, ask to be babysat.
Bruh, i haven't played against this guy, because he's so rarely played. I'd expect him to be easy though. Just play aggressive. Watch out for his level 1, good ASols will abuse their power early.
Will burst you faster than a Tesla, not sponsored btw. You CAN kill her early, just play aggressive until level 6, and then expect her to use her shuriken ability thing to jump out of your W. Farm, ask for ganks.
Pretty severe matchup, can prevent you, (and every other champion that isn't zed or yasuo) from farming past level 6. If she uses Q, go in and get out again. You don't wanna towerdive.
Earlygame he's going to poke you lots, but if you can manage to survive laning phase, you're gonna be able to oneshot him until he begins to get ap-hp items.
Barely a problem, just go aggressive AF. Don't poke, rather just W-Q-AA to proc electrocute, whenever he comes close to you. If you can dodge his stun it's easy.
You know, i realise... I've never played in lane agains't Cassiopeia before. Not in, what, 400-500 games? Welp. I know her kit though, so let's just say, don't get poked, you won't win the trade. She can prevent your W from even existing, so watch out. Same with your E. Ask for ganks.
Rarely played, but on the occasion that he DOES get played, you'll have a hard time farming, but you ought to be able to oneshot him mid-game. Every time you take farm, be prepared to dodge SOMETHING.
Yikes, hard matchup. Don't get close to her, and just farm. If you get close, she'll draw you in and put that curved scimitar where the sun don't shine. Lategame she's gonna oneshot you as well. Ask for ganks, nonstop.
Just try to survive, you can win trades, and that's about it. Pretty even lane.
Can dodge your W. Just make sure if you go, to not use your Q before you're certain it's gonna hit him. Ask for ganks. Do NOT let him get fed.
Yeah, can't do much, except he can W your ult. Laning phase should be easy too, considering you have a shield.
This champ exists? LOL
Quite fast, but shouldn't be that much of a problem. Dodge his stun, preferably while engaging with W. Then he oughta be dead. Be prepared to run if he uses ult turret.
Can deal damage late game, lots, in fact. You'll have to smash the shit out of him earlygame, where he's very immobile and can't deal tons of damage.
Ouch. A good kassadin will turn on your ass the second you go in. You might knock him up, you might q-aa-r, but he's not gonna die if he got his q off. Then he'll proceed to oneshot you. However, he's weak before and a few minutes AFTER he buys RoA.
Easy lane, but you'll get smacked lategame. Unless of course, you managed to shut her down so much that she doesn't deal damage.
She can dodge your shit, but you should be able to make it through lane, and out of lane, and into lategame, and then win, because you spank towers harder than xayah when you're alone in your home.
Doesn't deal any damage, but can cc you. So just watch out for ganks, and you'll PROBABLY be fine.
Easy. If she uses Q, you dodge it and if she then uses E, go in. If you fly through E, nothing will happen and she'll be without abilities. You'll oneshot her lategame as well.
Burn in hell, malzahar.
Not very common midlane, but i happens occasionally. Get rooted, and you're dead. GG, kiddo.
Same as morgana, however if you manage to either 1. get rooted BEFORE it hits a minion, or 2. Dodge her root, you ought to be able to easily kill her.
Haha, nidalee is shidalee. Fight me.
Ouch. Good luck. He's busted midlane, so i can't help ya there, Buster.
Easy peasy, since you read my guide >;)
Can deal tons of damage if played correctly. Has movement speed, sustain damage and shields. You can't solokill him, but if you get a gank you can kill him for sure. Just survive laning phase, and don't play stupid aaaaah play crazy aaaah
Fucking puny earlygame. Does virtually no damage before level 6, but can wreak havoc if she roams and gets kills. You can EASILY kill her if she comes too close. Im talking AP Shyvana btw, not AD. That shit doesnt exist in lanes other than top.
Very tanky, you can't 1v1. It's also dangerous to go close to his ass when he has his Shotgun Q. If you get rooted it's bye-bye.
If she's faker, she can blow you away before you can knock her up. Then she'll stun you and fucking shove those balls up your ass.
Meh, he ain't that much of a challenge. Just survive laning phase, and DON'T Get him fed. Your ult is virtually useless to him, so that's a good thing.
Hello high-elo pick. Good thing nobody knows how to play her in silver, haha. No but seriously, she'll fuck you up if you dash through her field thing. I reccomend that you dodge her shove thing, ult around through the rocks and THEN combo. Not that hard, but it takes self control to not just YEET to her. She's dead if you reach her.
Ouch, bursty AD assasins. Ask for ganks. Nonstop. Can't stop, won't stop.
Can stun you if you dont oneshot him. Take cleanse, for that easy kill. Rather squishy though, you can kill him earlygame.
Waaaa, i wanna cry. Fucking annoyingly high hp for a stacking burst-mage, and just tons of poke. If he uses E, look to go in.
Can imagine this guy is gonna be a problem, luckily high skilled champions don't get played much in silver. God, please let me somehow get to gold so atleast my teammates know what they're doing.
I've legit never played against this robot fella. I've never seen him either. Idk man. But i know he's got shields, so yeah, chances are that you won't be able to oneshot him, and it's gonna be the other way around.
Get close, and bust his ass. He has long range, but if he gets too close, as i said, fist his ass until it bleeds. Very squishy, but deals tons of damage lategame, so just be careful.
I ban this guy every game. I just hate yasuo in particular. But still, he can shut down your combo if he places windwall on himself. And if you go in, and he realises you fucked up, he'll just Hasaiyo you to death. Just fucking annoying to play against in general.
Ouchie, not a problem in higher elo but he fucking smashes asses in lower elo. He'll dodge your W, and you're gonna get on the floor and beg while he PRRRRRRs with a knee on your back. Ask for ganks, but still, he's probably gonna 1v2 and eat your boypussy.
Annoying little critter fella, however you ought to be able to oneshot him if you can get close. Just dodge his poke in lane.
She can dodge your W with her ult, sleep you, fuck you. God i wanna fuck zoe. What? It's legal, she's thousands of years old! NO POLICE NO WAIT
Dodge her cc and win easy
Well yeah, but you're not gonna lane with her because you're mid. But theyre literally made to feast on the decapitated heads of others.
Champion Build Guide
AND THAT DAY IS TODAY! REJOICE, FOR I AM IN THE MOOD TO WRITE ENGLISH ****!
I've been playing League of Legends since around october 2018. So i'm kind of a newbie as well. However, at the time of writing i am level 137, so i've had my fair share of games.
So, if you've seen other Rakan guides, they recommend Electrocute too. For good reason. It works EXCEPTIONALLY well with Rakan. You hit your W, (which is your engage) and you quickly walk slightly to the side so you can hit your Q and an AA also. Lategame, to an ADC, that means death. Things like Dark Harvest might work too, but only in certain scenarios.
Sudden impact, because that your W is a dash. It is Also your engage. Perfect!
Eyeball collection, because you're gonna be getting kills. You're incredibly good at helping your jungler, so just roam around the map whenever possible.
Ultimate Hunter, so that you have your Ultimate every combo. Simple.
I personally prefer Manaflow Band because then i won't run out of mana mid-lategame.
And last but not least, Gathering Storm, So you're actually viable late game. Rakan lacks a lot of burst if the enemy team builds MR, so this will help.
Then i'd just take
And then either Armor or Magic Resist, depending on your matchup.
