Introduction

[http://i40.tinypic.com/10ef1br.jpg]

Renekton is an early game tank/laner/scrimisher with a rage bar.
I suck at renekton

If you ever get into multiple fights early game he is the ideal hero to have other then riven.

With 0 mana costs it makes him a very effective laner with his skillset, and a really strong bait game.

Since renekton has an short jump that can jump twice, he can afford to go heal ignite, instead of ignite flash. This gimps your flash W initation but it gives him so much more map presence. throughout the game.


The bad thing about renekton is his late game sucks, but his strong points are a strong early/mid game and is very effective with alot of resistant items to counter your lane because of his ult that gives him HP. He also benefits from cooldown items.

If you have problems with controlling mana, want to rape from the start, like interior crocodile aligators then renekton is the hero for you.


Since you're a crocodile you never lose when you're in the river. HUEHUEHUE

As always the interior crocodile aligator song is appropriate to listen to while playing this hero

Summoner Spells

The point of these two summoner spells is to have great control early game, if both junglers gank you should come on top no matter what. You can also win in trades overall and force them to back off or flash if you do it properly.



___________ old ^ you can still run it if you dont need flash and wanna destroy your lane.

When you run flash you can use it to get out when you engage in a fight, or you can use it to engage or get kills or avoid kills. flash is just to strong of a summoner spell to ignore.

Explanation:



bait/ult into fight and do damage/ wreck everything.

Skill Order

Level up E after Q so you can escape if you get level 2 ganked SINCE I ALWAYS GET LEVEL TWO GANKED.

Level up W second so you have a stun CC.

Max out Q first so you have sustain safe harass...

optional: or max out W to harass your lane.

You can max E if you want to play the push game.

Item Builds

Starting Items: elixir-of-fortitudehealth-potion4health-potion2] OR cloth-armorhealth-potion5 OR dorans-blade


Core Items: dorans-blade (Atleast 1) -> the-brutalizer OR hexdrinker

Meta Core: sunfire-capewarmogs-armorranduins-omenspirit-visageguardian-angel


Boots: ninja-tabi OR mercurys-treads OR ionian-boots-of-lucidity


Items you should consider buying: NOTHING BECAUSE YOU'RE RENEKTON. YOU SUCK LATE GAME UNLESS YOU WANNA BUILD DAMAGE.

There is this god tier item.

Early Game

Even though you're an early to mid game champion, you still aren't the strongest at lvl 1. You don't really pick up until level 2 or 3. So be careful in how you play. VS most heroes you can usually dominate the lane by harassing and comboing, and since you have heal ignite, you will win in a 1v1 trade. This is the problem though, if you get ganked you have to have E to get away, or it needs to be a forced 1v1 where their solo lane is low and the jungler is 1v1ing you. This is the most important part of the game and can decide how the game goes if you make a mistake. Don't move around to much, just farm and protect your own jungle.

Mid Game

This should be around where dragon is easily doable. Make sure if your team is going for dragon you push your lane and come down to support. As renekton this is where you shine the most, in small skirmishes you will usually come out on top with your skill set. You still need your team to really be effective though, you can chain CC and tank for them very effectively this part of the game.

Remember you always can heal bait with fort pot/ult/heal It is very effective at all levels of play that aren't aware of renekton.

Late Game

Renekton start's to fall off here, your job is to have GA so you can soak up hits for your team to do the damage. You also need to CC the enemy AD carry, any time you can E in to W them with your team around, will mean you've ddone your job. You shouldn't beable to 1v1 their ad carry because of their support, but you should be able to do enough AOE damage and tank enough for your team come through.

This is the biggest reason why I don't play renekton because he can't carry unless you play the early mid game well. If you are lacking a balanced game where your team is all late game, then renekton is the hero for you.

Team Fights

Run back and forth and focus enemy squishies. Or save your own carries. You can always wait to go into a fight if you already have a tank and clean up. Focus your burst on whatever your team focuses on, because renektons sustain is not the best, but mediocre.

Renekton Commentary

[own3d]http://www.own3d.tv/video/470213/Renekton_Commentary_for_guide_By_Dyrus[/own3d]




There are many different ways to play renekton but in solo queue this one is mine. It works fairly well for me but I do not prefer renekton for late game.

If this guide doesn't work for you then it means a few.... ALOT of things.

1. You're not doing it right

2. The enemy laner is running a VS GAREN page (40 flat armor)

3. Your jungler sucks or you're getting camped.

4. My guide needs some adjustments

5. Renekton sucks and needs some late game buffs and early game nerfs.

6. You need to run flash ignite instead of heal ignite for gap closer over E because you keep getting stunned.

7. Your item build or mine sucks.

8. You didn't sit in the river enough because you're an aligator and you shouldn't lose in the river.

9. Enemy ran full kite comp

10. your team sucks


feel free to provide feedback here, please remember this guide is from my point of view and although it may not be perfect, it works to a certain extent.

do not come up to me with some stupid build where you rush the recommended items or any certain items because all item builds depends on what enemy you're against.
