Oneshot EVERYONE (minus super tanks) - Full AP Rakan Mid

By Bughans
This is a PURE damage build. It puts absolutely NOTHING into defensive stats or utility. This build is based off a quote a wise non-binary person once said: "The enemies can't kill you if they're dead."

If you're looking for a mixed build I'd recommend checking out other builds. There's several mid builds on the Rakan discord server, FYI
Why Rakan mid? Back to Top
You see, Rakan is quite the unique champion. Before patch 9.5

and 10.13,

he was rather confined to his role in support, as he had no significant damage output. Most people maxed E or Q on him, because the only thing that scaled on his W was it's rather small base damage pool.

People of course still played him mid, but with the old item pool as well, where no item really fit him, other than the few scrubs who insisted protobelt worked. Pathetic. Being a first mover and enjoyer of the fine life, I, of course also went him old Ludens Echo even back then.

But then... The item update happened.
imagine explosions here, it adds to the dramatic effect

BOOM, BRAND NEW and IMPROVED Ludens Tempest to DOMINATE the Rift.

Pathetic babies, of course, also have tried to push stuff like Night Harvester and Hextech Rocketbelt, and while those ARE viable, none work quite as efficient as Ludens does.

But I'm going off topic.

Why Full AP Rakan Mid, you ask?
a proud full build Rakan admiring the pure numbers he has put out via a full combo ca 2021 (colorized)

Also Rakan is really hot.
