How to play Renekton




Renekton is a top-lane fighter. He uses his mobility, tankiness and crowd control to get onto the enemy backline and kill their carries. Renekton is a powerful early game baron lane champion and with his high damage and sustain, he's able to dominate in the early stages.


Renekton doesn't have a mana bar, but instead has a Rage bar from his passive, Reign of Anger. This is the most important part of his kit so make sure you keep an eye on the Rage bar as if it is at 50% or higher, your abilities get more powerful.


Renekton can also be played in the mid lane, make sure to check the alternative build at the top of the page! With Renekton Mid the build and playstyle are pretty much the same. The only difference is you will most likely not need to buy teleport so you can get Gargoyle to keep yourself alive in team fights.

Renekton's Abilities


Reign of Anger (Passive)

Renekton doesn't have mana, he instead has a Rage bar. Attacks generate Fury, which is gained faster when under 50% health. When you step out of combat, Fury dissipates every second. When Renekton casts an ability with 50 Fury or more, he consumes that Fury to enhance the next ability.

This is the most important part of Renekton's Kit. It makes him really strong as he doesn't need to worry about consuming mana when using his abilities. Just keep an eye on your Rage bar (under health) so you know when you have enough Fury to enhance your abilities.

Cull The Meek (1)

Renekton spins in a circle dealing physical damage to nearby enemies, generating fury and healing per enemy hit. Reign of Anger - Damage increases and healing is tripled.

Cull the Meek is amazing for sustaining in the laning phase as this works on minions as well. When you jump in to fight the enemy, if you get low you can stack up 50 Fury and use your Cull the Meek on minions to heal up a lot and stay in the fight.

Also works really well if you are in a big team fight, as if you are low and have loads of champion surrounding you, you can use the ability to heal a lot and stay in the fight.

Ruthless Predator (2)

Empowers the next attack to strike twice, stunning for just under a second and dealing physical damage. Reign of Anger - Strikes 3 times, stunning for longer and dealing even more physical damage.

When using Ruthless Predator, most of the time you want to make sure you have more than 50 Fury. Not only do you strike 3 times which works really well with the Blade of the Ruined King and Black Cleaver, but also you stun the target for longer allowing the rest of your team to follow up and help kill the enemy.

Ruthless Predator is most effective during the early game to get an advantage in the lane, as it does a lot of damage and you can follow it up with more auto attacks and other abilities whilst the enemy is stunned.

Slice and Dice (3)

Dash in a direction, dealing physical damage and generating Fury for each enemy passed through. Hitting an enemy grans a second dash to cast within a few seconds. Reign of Anger - The second dash deals more damage and shreds armor for a few seconds.

It is crucial to make sure you hit an enemy when using this ability. This works on monsters, minions and of course champions. This allows you to dash again, so if you need to chase down the enemy or want to dash away to create a bigger distance, it can be done.

The best combo to do is Slice into the enemy using Ruthless Predator, auto-attack and then dash back out. It's a great way to get some nice free damage off on the enemy during the laning phase.

Dominus (Ultimate)

Gain Fury and health for 15 seconds. Every second after casting, you gain Fury and deal magic damage to nearby enemies. It's important to use Dominus at the start of every fight.

Being able to get Fury and health straight away will help a lot when going in to fight the enemy team. Also gaining Fury every second is really important as you can get multiple enhanced abilities off during a single team fight with your Dominus activated.

Renekton Build Breakdown


Blade of the Ruined King
Black Cleaver
Guardian Angel
Death's Dance
Sterak's Gage
Plated Steelcaps - Teleport

Renekton uses a mixture of both damage and tank items that work well with his kit. Blade of the Ruined King is the perfect first item for Renekton. It allows him to split-push very well and makes him strong in 1vs1 duels. Blade of the Ruined King's passive also works really well with Renekton's 2nd ability, Ruthless Predator. Once you get 50 Fury and activate your 2nd ability, you can stun an enemy and hit them 3 times which instantly procs the Blade of the Ruined King's passive to help you chase down enemies. Black Cleaver is another great item that works well with Renekton's kit. You can use many abilities and attacks in a short amount of time, which will shred the enemy's armor really fast so you can do even more damage.


For runes, we have the following:

Conqueror

Renekton is a fighter so he wants to get in the enemies face and attack constantly. This allows him to get the stacks pretty fast with his abilities, which allows him to deal more damage.

Brutal

This helps out Renekton to get the early lead that he needs to keep up with the rest of the champions. He gets that bit of extra damage when last hitting minions and trading vs the enemy champion.

Second Wind

As a melee champion, it is very helpful to have more health regeneration especially for the laning phase as most of the time, you will be poked out by ranged champions.

Sweet Tooth

A great rune for Renekton if you get low in the laning phase and need that extra bit of healing and free money.

Flash
Ignite

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get out of a situation or if you are trying to go in for the killing blow. For the 2nd spell, it's best to go for Ignite. This helps a lot when going into fights and trying to get that extra damage to kill off the enemies.

Early Game


Renekton is one of the strongest early game champions because of his damage and early sustain that keep him alive. When you hit level 3 and have access to your 2nd Ability (Ruthless Predator), you can dash in with your 3rd Ability (Slice and Dice) making sure you hit an enemy, and use your 2nd ability to stun them and then you can dash back out straight away. This is even more effective if you have 50% or more Fury as your 2nd ability will stun for longer and deal even more damage.

Late Game


Renekton is a great team fight champion in the late game. You want to stay with your team at all times and try not to get caught out by yourself. When a team fight happens, you want to make sure you are at the front protecting your team. Make sure you always go towards the biggest threat on the enemy team and try to take them down. Renekton can also do really well in split-push situations especially with this item build. You can solo a lot of champions and try to get an early advantage for your team.

Conclusion


Overall Renekton is a strong champion especially in the early game which when ahead can carry the game off of his own back. The abilities are really easy to get used to and with no mana, it's one less thing to worry about.
