In this guide I will be showing you how to counter Rakan. This League of Legends champion is quite good, as he has quite mobile skills. This champion’s ultimate ability is one of the best, as he can increase his movement speed and enchant his opponents. But here I’ll show you how to counter Rakan.
Tips for dealing with Rakan
Rakan counter champions
The following champions are the most recommended to face Rakan.
This champion can counter Rakan very easily, as he has a skill that transports him when Rakan tries to escape or approach his ally. Master Yi’s Q skill immunizes him from damage and allows him to attack all nearby targets. This ability can also help dodge the ultimate Rakan or any other ability.
This champion can save his allies from Rakan’s ultimate if he uses his W skill at the right time. Pantheon’s W ability allows him to stun his targets when he is thrown, it also gives him his passive shield which holds up the first basic attack. If Rakan tries to escape, he stuns him with his W to prevent him from passing.
This champion although he can stop Rakan with his Q ability in any attempt to start with his ultimate, also has his E. The Q ability has to be very well thrown at Rakan when he activates his ultimate to avoid the pass. If in case you fay the Q and you reach your good damage ally put the skill E to avoid him to be caught. Also a good Zhonyas and ultimate Morgana can prevent Rakan’s allies from approaching.
This champion is the ADC I most recommend against Rakan, as it has mobility, invisibility, good damage and CC. Vayne’s Q can avoid Rakan’s W ability, as this ability moves her to one side. Also Vayne’s ability E can be quite helpful against Rakan and his ultimate, as it can push him back.
This champion can give a good peel to her team against a Rakan, as she has very good skills against Rakan. Lulu’s W skill can turn her into an animal or provide a shield for her ally. It is best when Rakan starts with his ultimate to stick the W skill to him, as he can stop him and avoid that ultimate.
Rakan counter items
The following items have to be used to have a better fight against Rakan.
This object draws from any type of CC in which it is found the one that has it when it is activated. The item has to be used when Rakan has already caught with his R, in order to make the item work. I recommend this item to ADCs or killer champions.
This object immunizes the possessor when activated, allowing the possessor not to cast spells or anything else. If Rakan starts with his ultimate, this object can take you out of that great predicament allowing you to dodge that ability and avoid damage.
