AP TOP/MID RAKAN GUIDE (14.13), MATCHUPS/PLAYSTYLE/BUILDS

By BrMario1011
About me and socials
Hello my name is BrMario1011, i started playing league 2 years ago because of my friends and until now i have taken a liking to corki,karthus,kassadin,taric and rakan
i shall update this guide regularly i hope, i speak sometimes in the rakan mains discord and if you want to contact me add me on discord : "brmario1011"
link to my twitch ( i dont stream regularly but i will start soon)
https://www.twitch.tv/brmario1011
Why rakan midlane?
I hate playing support and not dealing damage, but i like playing rakan and taric, so i play taric top/jg and rakan midlane ap

Ap rakan mid is actually a thing and if you are good at it, you can climb!, just imagine that a rakan midlane plays very simillar to a galio
How does it work?
Because of rakans passive shield, Q and W, he can sustain and gap close very easily mages and assasin, he can roam very easily because of his kit
and belive it or not he can out damage some midlaners and solo kill them very easily, and he also can work with little cs in bad matchups

PROS


*Very good roaming potential
*Can scale pretty hard for team fights
*Outtrades majority of meele laners
*Broken on premade teams
*People understimate you lol
*People may get tiled at you
*One shot potential
*Dangerous when fed
*Perma stun
*INSANE LATE GAME HEALS AND SHIELDS
*passive scales super hard
*if jg plays with you its amazing
*Still usefull when behind/low cs
*Can peel and play with hc very easily
*Can skirmish very well early game

CONS


*Some matchups are annoying af lol
*Can be hard to master a roaming play style
*Usualy jungle dependent
*Ur team might flame you lol
*Gets destroyed by cc
*In some comps you are completly useless lol
*Hard to get ahead in some matchups
*Needs some items to actually start destroying ppl
*Its not that easy to miss w/q, how ever if you miss it, its joever
*bad wave clear early if you have low cdr
Basic combos and getting an early kill
Level 1 against majority of champs that cant eat you level 1, your gonna want to trade with them

LEVEL 1 COMBO : AA + W +AA

, if they have resolve then aa them and wait it off, 300 range rakan AA really helps you with this
When you get level 2, your gonna want to

W+Q+AA OR AA+W+Q


If you do this once level 1, and two times level 2 with electrocute and ingnite you might kill your laner, no one expects this especially from a support, and you outdamage some champs in these levels
Your gonna almost always do this against champs like aurelion,vlad,veigar,qiyana,zed,kassadin.etc

Make sure to hit the first wave to get a level 2 advantage and catch ur oppents off guard

When you get level 6 you can easily dive some champs and catch them off guard, to do this do this combo

R + W + Q + AA OR W + R + Q + AA


If you wanna catch them far away or really by surprise do

R + FLASH + W + Q + AA



You can also do flash w but i will go more about those mechanics in a later chapter

old video but still usefull

Playstyle

YOU DONT HAVE TO KILL UR OPPONENT!!


Sure its good to solo kill your opponent, but not all champs are easy to solo kill, you can easily kill champs like naafiri,talon,ekko etc but thats because you just outdamage them and out sustain them, champs like yone,irelia,yasuo can really punish you hard if you missplay and end up maybe diying to them.

ITS BETTER TO GO EVEN IN LANE AND PLAY FOR LATE GAME THAN TO FEED A SYNDRA


Play rakan mid like a galio, impact early skirmishes, roam, play with jg,
later you can one shot ppl, heal and shield
Im sorry if this is way too short or hard to understand

ITS EASIER FOR YOU TO KILL PEOPLE THAT ENGAGE ON YOU THAN YOU ENGAGE ON THEM


you are very strong level 1-2, and level 3-6 you are weaker than some midlaners, after you get your ult you get your strength back
WIP
Im still new to making mobafire guides and i lack a high elo to make a decent guide still, i will continue this guide later but for now this is it, make sure to have fun and join the rakan mains discord
expect updates

sorry for bad english btw lel

About rakan top
Altough rakan top works, midlane is just better

Agaisnt most toplaners, rakan cant match their damage and if you try and w on them you will most likely get run down, sure in lower elos you can kill your laner and stomp, but its still hard since some champs on top just run you down regardless lol

How to make it work and win?


Simple, play safe and just soak up cs and xp,take teleport, cosmic insight and you play with your jungler, roam with your teleport early and be more usefull than ur enemy laner in fights, roams, pickoffs, early skirmishes and taking objectives

This can be a hard playstyle for many, thats why i really dont recommend it, rakan top is fun in normal games tho lol


Something positive about rakan top is that theres a slot for a hyper carry in midlane, that you can peel and get him fed
