Hey again Neqster!

As mentioned before in your Braum Guide, this looks absolutely stunning! :D

I see you have now got the grip of how to use the new Guide Builder and with the new look to it, this guide has just become even more amazing, just like all other of your guides. Well done my friend! :)

Thank you so much for your support! I appreciate it. If you didn't tell me about new Builder I will never make it like this. Could you tell me what do you think about my Guide for Karma as well? and today I updated my Build for Braum, I added something like "match ups and counter champs" so you feal free to check it if you want :D Once more, thank you! <3

Hey Neqster!
Yep, it's me again.. xD

Anyway, great guide on Rakan. I know you're probably still working out a lot of details but I happened to notice that your threat and synergy section is missing explanations of why you'd rank Lulu for example as a Major threat.
Also, please add a game play section where you describe the playstyle you would recommend - like with Xayah and without her and playing safe versus when to play aggressive because these are the usual trouble spots you'd face as a new Rakan player. :]

Anyway well done again. β™₯

Welcome back :)

About your question. I can agree with what you say about rakan is a true. You said that: "His ult and his knock up can hit you quite hard (and your ADC!) you'll be busy with escaping his knock ups, but once he used it (and hopefully missed it), it's your payback time."

I will share some experience from my side about Rakan vs Lulu. Lulu is a very, very agressive champion at the bottom side as support. Before six level she is able to harassing and opressing her oponents as ****ing hell. Sometimes is very hard to survive early phase lane against Lulu. After six level is like you said above.

Remember "Everything is based on your own skills, not on the champion you will play" :P

please add a game play section where you describe the playstyle you would recommend

Oh god. This is a good idea but you want too much from me.. I'm not good speaking in english but maybe, MAYBE I will add some Highlights from games as rakan.

I have one game on my YT Chanel vs Brand, there is a link: Youtube chanel. There are only sounds from game and rock music without my voice.

.. xD Someone read my guide. :b

Yeah, well. I'm way too reckless with Rakan to be honest which is mostly the reason I'm deciding to play another champion - just for the sake of my team (and their nerves, lol).

That's okay, in my opinion, typos and wrong grammar are far better than a person who doesn't try at all because of fear or other reasons. If you want, I can like try to proof-read your sections and give you some advices and corrections. But I'm not the fastest person because my free time's kinda limited. But I'm still happy to help. :)
I think adding some small videos or passages with just scenarios that usually happen a lot would already be great. It's impossible to think about every possible trade off and situation that might occur. But giving some general advices and ideas would be pretty helpful, I reckon. :>
Yeah why not add some clips from that video into your guide? :) good idea.

Greeting Neqster, i like this guide only because you make section for warding i really like when people make things like this i play all roles so im support main too and i really like playing support with cc and rakan is one of them, i like guide what do you think about taking resolve for main runes i dont think that is good idea but i still need to ask.
Neqster (2) | November 26, 2018 11:29pm
Hello. I still working above this Guide and I will try explained some things in the future. About your question. When the season 8 was started I always used "Sorcery" and "Domination" because that was giving me a lot of movement speed (48 from Relentless Hunter) and at the start I had 25 magic power with "Absolute Focus". That is very good values at the start. Also these runes are very helpfull for initianting team fights

Currently I also using "Resolve" and "Sorcery" because with new patch (8.23) RITO added new tree with runes and finally I can chose what I want. "Resolve" are very usefull and helpfull when enemy team have very agresive champion on support like for example Brand, Zyra. These runes help you survive early phase lane.

Hey there, nice guide, especially because you made a section on where to place wards, which (in my opinion) is one of the most important things to know at early game!

About the guide design, you could use inline markdown (like this Rakan) instead of inline icon (like this rakan ) but that's just my opinion. Good work!
Neqster (2) | November 26, 2018 4:18am
Thanks for your comment. I will worked above design on this Guide. I still learning and exploring these tools and i will make something like that in this guid. Also I will working above new maps: "Wards around Baron and Dragon".
