In this guide I will be showing you how to counter Rek’sai. This League of Legends champion is one of the best jungles, as his skills are excellent for helping his allies. Rek’Sai is a champion who is not weak against blindness, as he has a very good ability to detect enemies. But since all champions have their weaknesses, here I’ll show you Rek’Sai’s weaknesses.
Tips for dealing with Rek’Sai
Rek’Sai counter champions
The following champions are the most recommended, to face Rek’Sai.
This champion can face Rek’Sai in the jungle, as he has very good skills against him. Olaf’s passive, allows him to have +1 attack speed with every % of life he lacks, allowing this to damage more quickly his enemies who damage him body to body as could be Rek’Sai. Also Olaf’s ultimate allows him to be immune to any CC, as can be Rek’Sai’s W ability when he leaves the earth.
This champion I recommend him, as his skills are quite good and he can withstand and damage Rek’Sai quite easily. Gnar’s Q ability can neutralize the movement speed of enemies touched by that ability. Also Gnar can jump away from Rek’Sai with his ability E, when he tries to approach abruptly.
This champion is quite good against Rek’Sai, as he possesses a great ability that can avoid the ultimate of him. Fizz’s ability E, allows him immunity when he can pounce and fall into an area and damage his enemies. This ability can be launched when Rek’Sai goes underground and wants to come out with a massive attack.
This champion is the ADC I highly recommend when it comes to facing Rek’Sai. Lucian has a great passive that allows him 2 basic attacks for each skill he throws. In spite of that passive, also in his abilities he has displacement, that is his ability E. Allowing this displacement, that Lucian can avoid the ball of earth that Rek’Sai throws and to move away from him.
This is the support I highly recommend, when it comes to giving a good peel to his Rek’Sai allies. Thresh’s abilities like his Q and E can prevent Rek’Sai from moving, as these abilities can neutralize enemies. Thresh’s lamp can also remove an ally from Rek’Sai’s clutches.
Rek’Sai counter items
The following items have to be used, in order to maintain a confrontation against Rek’Sai.
This object immunizes champions who possess it when activated. The ultimate of Rek’Sai is a powerful damage, which if hit to a champion, can cause death. But this object has to be thrown as soon as Rek’Sai goes underground to jump.
Rylai Crystal Scepter
This object neutralizes enemy champions, when the possessor touches them with an ability. Rek’Sai can gain speed of movement, when he submerges underground with his skill W, but with this object he will not be able to escape.
This item can take those who have it out of any CC they are in, when activated. Rek’Sai’s W ability, when allowed to rise to the surface, lifts enemies through the air, causing them to be neutralized for a moment.
Call of the Executioner
This item allows the possessor to give serious wounds to enemies when he hits them. Rek’Sai’s W ability and passive allows him to regenerate his life while he is submerged underground, allowing the anger he got to be consumed as life.
