Rek'sai Rune Choices - League of Legends
Rek'sai Rune Choices

Core Items

Prowler's Claw

3100 Gold

Edge of Night

2900 Gold


Prowler's Claw is great for assassins like Rek'sai to get close to their targets more quickly, while ramping up the damage output. 

Edge of Night compounds this, allowing you to dodge any immediate attempt to lock you down while diving for the engage.

Other good items include Sterak's GageGuardian Angel, and Serpent's Fang.

Starting Item & Boots

Refillable Potion

150 Gold

Jungle Item

350 Gold

Defensive Boots

1100 Gold

Skill Order

While your choices may differ according to how the game progresses, the typical Rek'sai skill priority is:

R > Q > E > W

Summoner Spells

These are the summoner spells most typically taken by Rek'sai in this role. Naturally, this may change depending on match-ups.

Flash - League of Legends
Smite - League of Legends


Rek'sai is a great jungler in the early game, but falls off significantly towards the late game. Still, he's a great option for diving into the backlane and trying to take down those squishy carries. 

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Queen's Wrath / Prey Seeker, for the additional damage during jungle clear.
  • Level 2 - Take W - Burrow / Un-burrow, to get around more quickly.
  • First Back - Pick up a Serrated Dirk as you move towards your Prowler's Claw. 

Tips & Tricks

  • Use Furious Bite when your Fury is at max, for double the damage converted to true damage. 
  • Void Rush is a great disengage tool, if you find you've bitten off more than you can chew.
  • Use Flash in conjunction with Burrow to surprise the enemy. 
  • When burrowed, any unit near to Rek'sai will pulse, revealing your position to the enemy if they are eagle-eyed.
