KEYSTONES >>> "GUARDIAN" - you want to protect your adc, you want to protect your allies so "shield" them with your "E" as much as you can :) start E if jungler need help if not "Q" is good for pokes. >>> "UNFLINCHING" - increase your chances to escape after "W" >>> "CONDITIONING" - you might feel soft early game [careful there] but eventually "early mid" and "late game" you gonna feel much more comfortable/unstoppable >>> REVITALIZE along with Ardent Censer perfectly works for Rakan. It might sound funny but In my opinion Rakan is similar to Zed a "shadow warrior" a "ninja" why ? because you gonna go in and out just like ninjas do :D. Secondary Keystones you have a lot of options here, I think if you play Rakan you should look for that extra mobility somewhere. SORCERY >>> "CELERITY" with "Talisman of Ascension" for quickness >>> "GATHERING STORM" for that special "element" of surprise mid late game. Each Rakan ability have special +AP% bonus to ability either increase damage or shield strength that's why you should work around mobility and ap. Rakan is very colorful champion and you should use that for your advantage for example if you look at my video at minute 1:17 after ultimate I'm moving up and down "doing nothing" while my abilities is on cooldown what's happening here ? "CREATE ILLUSION" few yellow blinks left and right might put some of the players for a second in confused state. In champion select I recommend to ask for Xayah :D if there's one haha this will definitely put smile on your face and anyways it's always better to play like that because you gonna get max effect out of the champion and everyone in team is happy to have both of you.
