Best Rell Build Guide | Runes | Spells | Items in League of Legends
Rell is one of the champions with the lowest play rate in LoL, to the point that she is the opposite of being one of the registered trademarks of League of legends. Still, even though most forget she exists, she is still useful and these are the best Rell build, runes, spells, items League of Legends can offer her, as well as her greatest counters.
Best Rell Build
Rell is an engage tank support champion, which goes by the class of Warden in League of Legends. That means her main goal is not outright attacking the enemy as much as it is holding them down.
Best Rell Runes
As a Warden, Rell's main goal is to both attack the enemy, as well as defend her squishy ADC. This is done easily with Glacial Augment and hits two birds with one stone.
|Best Rune path||Inspiration||Resolve|
|Best Keystone||Glacial Augment|
|Best Slot 1 (Rune)||Hextech Flashtraption||Font of Life|
|Best Slot 2 (Rune)||Biscuit Delivery||Bone Plating|
|Best Slot 3 (Rune)||Cosmic insight|
With the Glacial Augment Keystone, Rell's already impressive crowd control abilities get an additional slow to nearby enemy champions. While the Hextech Flashtraption is there to make surprising plays, especially to gain a level 2 advantage, for the easy power spike.
For Rell support, and similar supports, the whole laning phase can be won at level 2. The Resolve runes, on the other hand, are there to give Rell extra early-game sustain and takiness, along with Biscuit Delivery.
Best Rell Rune Shards
Rell is a tank champion through and through. So, the Rune Shards that you pick for her are the ones that influence this the best. If only the offense Rune Shard would allow to pick some resistances as well.
|Best Rune Shards||Effect|
|Offense||+8 Ability Haste|
|Defense||+8 Magic Resist|
However, knowing whom you're playing against is key. If the enemy bot lane only deals physical damage, the Magic Resist is redundant and you're bettor off stacking Armor.
Best Rell Spells
When it comes to Summoner Spells, there are only a few champions who are managing League of Legends trials, without using Flash. Those are Shaco or Tryndamere. Flash is a must-have when playing Rell, as Flash is, without a doubt, the best Summoner Spell in the game, overall, and one of her Runes depends on having it to work.
On the other hand, Ignite is the perfect counter to the Heal most ADCs take, and will allow you to bag some kills in the early game, with a single good engage.
Best Rell Abilities Order
The first ability to level on Rell, out of her skill order, is her W - Ferromancy: Crash Down. It's her main engage tool, which Rell players use to catch the enemy team when they least expect it, and follow up with the rest of their combo.
After that, the next ability in her skill order is her E - Attract and Repel. It strengthens the ally she is tethered to, while also working perfectly as a follow-up for her engage.
Finally, besides Rell's ultimate, we have her Q -Shattering Strike. It's an ability that must be used with the percent timing. Aside from the healing it gives to her and her tethered ally, the most important part is the fact that it shatters shields on enemies it hits, thus making Rell a perfect counter to enchanter champions.
And, as always, Rell's ultimate is her bread and butter. With this ability, getting officially involved in 5v5 team fights is the best course of action for Rell, instead of looking for solo picks.
Best Rell Items
When it comes to the support role, knowing how to buy items with your limited gold income is far more important than getting to full build that is reserved for carries.
Best Starter Rell Items
Starting off, as the usual melee engage tank support, the obvious choice is a Relic Shield as well as the Health Potions to round out the gold.
|First Item||Second Item|
|Relic Shield||Health Potion|
Best Mid Game Rell Items
In the mid-game, your core build should be ready. It consists of a non-negotiable Locket of the Iron Solari of the Mythic Items, Plated Steelcaps, and Bulwark of the Mountain, which is a fully upgraded Relic Shield.
|First Item||Second Item||Third Item|
|Bulwark of the Mountain||Plated Steelcaps||Locket of the Iron Solari|
Even without making a lot of picks in the early game, if you've diligently used your support item, you will have enough gold for these three items. especially since the Bulwark is a free upgrade.
Best Final Late Game Rell Items
In nature with the support's gold income, the rest of the items are all geared to low gold, and offer utility in addition to pure stats.
|First Item||Second Item||Third Item||Fourth Item||Fifth Item||Sixth Item|
|Bulwark of the Mountain||Plated Steelcaps||Locket of the Iron Solari||Zeke's Convergence||Thornmail||Knight's Vow|
Due to this, Zeke's Convergence and Knight's Vow are both items that enhance your carries, while THornmail allows you to deal with the pesky healing present in the game without having your ADC spend an item slot on an anti-heal item.
Best Champions To Pair Rell With
When Riot Games released Rell it was obvious they intended the Iron Maiden to be paired with Samira. However, she also has amazing synergy with two unorthodox botlaners as well.

Strongest Champions Against Rell
The champions Rell struggles against are the ones that have a way of stopping her engage, or even using her engage to their own advantage.

Weakest Champion Against Rell
On the other hand, enchanters that focus on shielding and healing instead of crowd control, as well as the engage champions she can bypass are the champions Rell plays best into.
