Like Xayah, there are two factors that stand out in Rakan that differentiate it from other media: Its extreme mobility and its synergy with Xayah. Being a champion with defensive and initiation skills, it is expected that when you use Rakan, you will have the initiative to engage in confrontations.
Your most common combo will be to use your Grand Entrance, to lift any enemy that is badly positioned into the air, always trying to take care of those who are close to you and your objective. After this, use your Gleaming Pen to fully attack part of its life bar and activate its healing passive.
After this and if you see yourself and your ally in danger, use your Combat Dance to return to him, and in case you have hit your Shining Pen, heal them both.

You Definitive will be vital for team fights, so you should save them for when necessary, or see that one or more enemies can fall easily.
