Among the 2 gold units of Teamfight Tactics, Rek’Sai seems to be the least prominent piece and is rarely pushed to the mains. If other champions of the same price as Corki, Swain, Zyra, Syndra, Ashe… ever shined in the meta, Rek’Sai seems to only play a supporting role. As a result, this champion is often in the group of champions with a low pick rate and often appears as a “trigger” in the Mutant or Gladiator team.
However, a player standing in the top 10 Challenger Casparwu found a way to push Rek’Sai to the top. Even according to this guy’s share, I once got the top 1 with the Giant Rek’Sai team in a match with all the players at the Chinese super server. So how to build this squad in the most effective way? Let’s find out together.
As for how to start, you should choose to aim for the 3 Yordles mark to get a large amount of gold to own the milestone of 50 coins as soon as possible. Kassadin is also a champion that should be purchased at the beginning of the game when in the later stages you need to activate the 3 Mutant milestone as soon as possible. The ideal team you should have at level 4 is Poppy, Ziggs, Corki and Kassadin.
The formation you should aim for at the beginning of the game to get more gold from Yordles
Going into the mid game, you should gradually replace Yordles units with more useful champions like Sejuani, Rek’Sai, Zyra…. Malzahar and Swain are also units that should be purchased at this stage when they bring them. give the whole squad a little skill damage that is very beneficial for Zyra or Kassadin. In addition, this duo also activates other strong effects such as 3 Mutants, 2 Technology.
Basic formation in the middle of the game
Casparwu’s advice is that you should stop at level 6 and roll as much as possible to get at least 3 stars Rek’Sai and Zyra. These are the main damage and control champions of this squad, so they need to be prioritized to upgrade. In addition, Sejuani is also a unit that should be upgraded to 3 stars if you buy too many during the roll. Towards the end of the game, your plan will be quite simple when you just need to add Kha’Zix and Kai’Sa to complete the 5 Mutant milestone.

As for the tech core picks, unlike the meta squads, the Giant Rek’Sai team requires a large amount of gold and you should pick the economic cores in round 1-3. In addition, the Unstable Evolution core is an extremely strong core for this squad as it gives Rek’Sai a huge amount of damage in the mid game.
In terms of equipment selection, Colossal Power is the most important item for Rek’Sai. The reason is because this unit really needs both attack and defense stats to be able to survive and deal damage most effectively. Among the items of the “dignity flag”, Colossal Power is the only item that gives both of these stats. In the 3rd item, Dragon’s Claw is a reasonable choice against the magic meta at the moment.
