The Build

Im Not experienced in making Mobafire builds at all so this isn't going to be having any special Links or Videos Attatched its just going to have my explanation. i was just hoping to get this build noticed.

Tank Rakan is the firs thing i thought when i saw this character, his kit is very all in and without a Xayah ADC (usually one of my friends playing Xayah) you can have a hard time getting back into position because of using your W because you don't have the extended range on your e on Xayah, This build can work regardless with or without Xayah in late game. Xayah is not super important to work with but it can help alot for you. to have a friend with communication playing Xayah, Communication is needed to use his ult efficiently.

The Reason i believe His kit is very all in and should be played Tanky is because Rakan can have such big impacts on team fights with his R and W, His R is an ability that grants movement speed and a taunt when you run into an enemy player (why i have all the movement speed recommendations in the build). I believe that if a character like Rakan has to chase people down and taunt them for his team or get in the middle of a fight and taunt everyone you want to be as Tanky as possible, this also fills in the tank spot for your team allowing alot more damage from the Usual Tanky top lane or Jungle. Taunting already enough is a very frustrating thing alone from a character like Rammus but the only problem with Rammus is getting the kill after taunt, some play Rammus support but thats not what this build is about. Once semi tanky you should be Trying to be obnoxious as possible by using your W to get in, landing a Q then pressing E back onto your team mate. this will do a small but annoying ammount of damage and let your ADC lay into the whilst they are in your W ability, after this you go back to your ADC with your E and shield them as well as giving them the heal from landing the Q on an enemy player.

I believe that if you're going to taunt someone you should be tanky, especially a whole team, running around and causing as much cc as you can in a team fight, especially a full team taunt can easily win a team fight. The Taunt is probably the best Ability in his kit because he can easily taunt everyone and chase people down with such a tanky and movement speed build, after taunting everyone you are usually able to W knock up all of them if they are in a small area and having a Yasuo on your team makes you able to greatly benefit from these massive knock ups.

In the end this is my first Guide lmao,Its not super in detail or planned its just a build that i want to be recognized because i believe it is very useful and affects team fights greatly, Thanks for reading about my build.

This is my first Build on Mobafire as i said, It is not in depth or anything special but i haven't seen any tank Rakan builds and i have been winning plenty of matches with this build, to me it just makes sense that a character like Rakan should tank, he has a taunt, he has to get close with his kit and works well with Xayah and Yasuo for obvious reasons, Thanks for reading.

Hopefully someone that knows how to make in depth guides can see this build and upload a much more in depth version of the build. as i said I'm new to this and i would love to see a much more thought out build.
