If you start Fizz’s W, you will have an advantage early because of the damage you will do when Rek’Sai is up in your face. Just try to avoid getting knocked up, and Q her when she already used her W to land all your burst.


Poke Rek’Sai with Kennen’s auto attacks, especially if she’s using her Q on minions. The cooldown on Tunnel is twice as high as Lightning Rush so she should never be able to engage.

Tips For Playing Against Rek’Sai

  • Destroy any of Rek’Sai’s tunnels you find; this will give her less map presence, as well as anyone with teleport. You also gain gold by destroying them.
  • Keep an eye on Rek’Sai’s fury bar, when she reaches max her E does true damage.
  • CC’ing Rek’Sai, while she’s tunneling, won’t stop her. She’ll be cc’d afterward.
  • Using Exhaust on Rek’ Sai, reduces both her insane mobility and attack speed passive from her ult, thus reducing the AOE hits from her Q, and making it less likely for her to retreat.
  • While burrowed, Rek’Sai can sense champions while in stealth.
  • If you see one of her Tunnels, try to destroy it as quickly as possible. Keep in mind this takes time, so be careful not to get ganked.
  • If you spot her entering your jungle, be sure to alert your allied jungler that she might be counter-jungling. If you are the jungler and you feel that you may not be able to take her on alone, be sure to call for allies or perhaps even stand still as her Tremor Sense only activates when a unit or group of units move.
