How it works

  1. You play Support who goes tanky.

How to play

  1. Identify your role within the team (engage, peel, frontline)
  2. If your team needs engage, go Trailblazer and Shurelya's Battlesong
  3. If your team needs peel, go Knight's Vow and Locket of the Iron Solari.
  4. Knight's Vow is a surprisingly good item. Buy it and use it if you have carry or bruiser/fighter who is doing well.
  5. You need to adapt your items to the game. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  6. Be careful to not waste Aftershock. Try timing it and keeping it for going in.

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. Rakan requires allies near him to make the most out of his tools.
