Renekton Build



Table of Contents

  • Abilities

    Reign of Anger
    A sweet new resource system, pretty easy to control. Remember, try not to waste your Fury with skills against minions unless you can get like 4+ minion kills within 1 skill.


    Cull the Meek
    Your healing & damage spell, which is also an AoE.
    It has pretty nice damage overall, and also it heals, but it has the lowest damage of all our skills.


    Ruthless Predator
    A great stun which deals alot of damage also.
    The stun duration does not gets higher when we raise a skill level, and that's why we will be raising this skill last.


    Slice and Dice
    Your bread&butter AND farming skill.
    We will be putting our points into this skill first, because it will lower it's cooldown and increase it's damage by ALOT.
    The most important part about this spell is the fact that it uses Fury only once you DICE. The SLICE does not uses fury, which will give us a chance to Slice in, Skill+fury, and Dice out.


    Dominus
    Zomg huge crocodile.
    This ultimate has some SWEET AoE damage, it increases our maximum HP, and makes us generate 5 fury per second! GREAT!
    Remember, use it only once the teamfight has already begun, do not use it to initiate because people will run away, and nobody likes to see a giant croco running for no reason.


  • Guide \ Champion Change Log

    This is the section where I will be writing all the changes I've made in this guide, and most of the changes that Renekton had during the patches.

    02/02/2011:

    Updated the guide with a little bit information.

  • Introduction

    Hello, and welcome to my Renekton guide.
    This is the second guide I am writing generally, so expect some stuff that can be better, and I'd love some comments on how to improve my guide.
    I've bought Renekton on the first day it got out, and been playing him since then.
    I win most of the games, had some losses ofcourse, but since I found my ultimate build, I generally win.
    I hope my guide will make you guys a better Renekton players.

  • Masteries + Runes

    Masteries will be 8\21\1 as following:

    Runes:
    9x Greater Mark of Desolation
    9x Greater Seal of Evasion
    9x Greater Glyph of Shielding to prevent those darn squishies from raping you.
    9x Greater Quintessence of Desolation

  • Skilling Order

    We will be raising our E first, just like in "sylph_uscm" guide, which has enlightned my eyes to the knowledge that our E IS GREAT.
    Slice&Dice deals the most damage out of all our skills at early game, which will result in great farming capabilities and awesome harrasing.
    Secondley, we will be putting our points into our Q, to farm even greater.
    Last, our W, to increase our overall damage and initiation capabilities.

    For you louzy skippers, here's the build =]



    P.S:
    I need to re-check the skill build since renekton's skills got a little bit buffed after the patch.
    For now, stick to this one.

  • Summoner Abilities

    There are only 3 options to roll with, and NOTHING MORE.
    If you take a summoner spell which is not included in these 3, you'll lose a kill, ATLEAST ONE.
    Exhaust
    Ghost
    Ignite

    I always take Exhaust and Ghost, because personally I think ignite loses it's point at late game, but it's your choice.

  • Items

    Okay, you've reached the almost most important part of the guide.
    If you don't get the currect items for Renekton, there will be 1 out of 2 options.
    A. You'll deal no damage, but won't die either.
    B. You'll deal tons of damage, but die endlessly and easilly.

    That's why I'm here to help you with your decision.
    This skill build has worked for me many times, and is NOT CONSTANT.
    This build has many IFs and ELSEs, you have to think of who's against you when you build Renekton up.

    Start off with a Doran's Shield.

    If you got harassed, denied or whatever, get another Doran's. My suggestion will be Doran's Blade.

    Farm as much as you can, DO NOT PUSH YOUR LANE. when you get atleast 1315 golds, you can go back for a Ionian Boots of Lucidity and a Long Sword.

    Keep farming, get a kill, gank mid, get lizard.
    After you get some golds, make your Long Sword into a The Brutalizer.

    When you got your The Brutalizer, you will now have to start thinking about this specific game.

    If they got many magic damage dealers, you will definetly be getting a Spirit Visage as your next item.
    If they don't, and they have many physical damage dealers, you should consider a Sunfire Cape, or a Randuin's Omen.
    After these items, you will want to get another physical item.
    If they stack armor(mostly they won't), get a The Black Cleaver, this item is so IMBA on Renekton, thanks to his W.
    Now, if you have alot of deaths, you should definetly get a Guardian Angel, and then complete your The Brutalizer into a Youmuu's Ghostblade, sell your Doran's Shield and get a The Bloodthirster.
    If you don't die alot, FIRST, get a The Bloodthirster, then complete your The Brutalizer into a Youmuu's Ghostblade, and then sell your Doran's Shield and get a Guardian Angel.


    Either way you choose, you MUST get a The Black Cleaver. It will boost your damage by TONS. Trust me, I've checked it. It's incredible.

    Other tanky items to put into consideration:
    Atma's Impaler
    Frozen Mallet if people escape you constantly.
    Hexdrinker Will save your life against champions like Karthus, Ezreal, etc.

  • Pros / Cons

    Pros:
    Very strong early game - early late game.
    Useful for the team all game long.
    Good for ganks.
    Farmer.
    Pusher.
    HE'S A CROCO.

    Cons:
    Can die easilly if focused down.
    Doesn't have a good escape mechanism.
    Cooldown dependant.

  • Working in the team

    As for working in the team, you definetly should be ganking every lane as soon as possible.
    The fact that you're a damage dealer does not means you have to get all the kills.
    I had a game once that I was like 24/0/0 by the 20th minute, and the rest of my team were all 0/X/X, and that was the reason that we lost. I WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT GREW STRONG.

    You have to help your teammates at getting blue, ganking, pushing.

    About teamfights, you are NOT A MAIN TANK, that means you don't run first and try to kill everyone.
    Let the tank do his job. Let him run first, after he runns in, get in the zone, start fighting, and only after the teamfight has begun, pop your ultimate. Your ultimate heals you and scares the shit out of people. If you pop it too early, people will definetly retreat. You have to pop it in the currect time.

  • Farming

    Renekton is a great farmer.
    Besides his auto-attacks like everyone else, he has 2 other AoE skills that can get him a good farming early game.
    Basically, slice in, Cull of the Meek, then dice on the group of minions that has the least amount of health.

  • Summing up

    Well, that's the end of the guide. I've written here everything that I can teach about Renekton, and I hope you guys will become better after reading it.

    Thanks for reading, I'll be glad if you rate my guide.


    I really have to thank sylph_uscm and his guide, I wouldn't learn the skill order without him, and his skill order really makes wonders.
    Good luck!
