Presentation

Presentation.

Rengar is an AD-mele-caster-assasin with a great potential to burst everybody in less than a sec.Rengar seems easy,but its actually really hard to master.In this guide you will basically learn everything about rengar and all his different combos(triple Q,oneshot combo,etc).


Lets get started!


Guide Top

Pros/contras

Pros

+High burst
+Stealth
+Ungankable
+Easy to get fed roaming
+Leap has no CD



Contras

-Your ult can be easily countered(pinks,etc)
-Useless if you are out of CD's
-You have no scape in a teamfight


Guide Top

Skills



Use this one to farm in early game.You can also dodge skillshots with it(nidalee spears,etc).Also awesome to make great outplays.


Main damage skill.Spam it at laning phase to get full stacks.



Use this skill at the start of every trade,it gives some extra armor and MR.Use Empowered Battle Roar to sustain or to 1v1 someone if you are low hp(you can outplay squishy targets like ADC's).



Use this skill to poke and farm without going to mele range.Awesome skill to chase people.Trade using empoweredE+E+Q to trade.



Use this skill to:

-Chase
-Teamfighting
-Getting easy kills/oneshot people


Guide Top

Skill order

We want to max Bola Strike before Q or W.
.
.
.
Why? Isnt Q better?

Maxing Bola Strike gives you a lot of poke and the possibility to farm without going to mele range.But that isnt the main reason. After Rengar's rework, empowered Savagery's damage doesnt scale anymore with it's level. So you want to max Bola Strike to get a higher burst, since your combo is empowered Empowered Savagery and a normal Bola Strike


Guide Top

Ability combos



Triple Q:



+ + + + +


-Get 5 stacks
-Use Thrill of the Hunt
-Use Empowered Savagerybefore leaping
-Just after leaping(mid-air) use Bola Strike and Battle Roar (you have now 2 stacks and you have used 1 Q)
-Use Savagery, wait 1 more second and you will have 5 stacks(after using Thrill of the Hunt you get 5 stacks during 5 secs)
-Use Empowered Savagery




Oneshot combo

Use every single skill while leaping(mid-air)

-Get 5 stacks
- Thrill of the Hunt
MID-AIR

Empowered skills

Empowered savagery (Q)



Use this skill to:
-Oneshot squishy targets

+

This skill is so OP in laning phase, just spam every single ability to get as soon as possible 5 stacks and use W.

Teamfights

Teamfight is one of rengar's strongest points.The key is knowing to positionate and focusing the correct target. Focus the enemy ADC, but if someone is peeling for him, think about going for the midlaner. Always let your team engage,NEVER engage, or you will die.

After killing someone you will have a proble,you have no CD's and no more leaps. Try to fight near bushes, or hide in them just after kiling someone. But you wont have this problem if your team has a lot of CC.

IMPORTANT: Buy Blade of the Ruined King instead of Infinity Edge if they have a lot of mobility, it will help you a lot to chase them.


Guide Top

Summoner's spells

In most of the cases


If you are playing against a full ranged team you should take instead of

I dont really think taking instead of is a good idea since as Rengar you must outpust the maximum damage possible, and ignite is great to pickup easy first bloods.


Guide Top

Items



Start buying Doran's Blade.

IF YOU ARE BEHIND



Get 2 more Doran's Blade

Get Tiamat>>>> Last Whisper>>>> Ravenous Hydra>>>> Youmuu's Ghostblade>>>> The Bloodthirster

Now, get either Infinity Edge or Blade of the Ruined King depending on their team(if they are very tanky take Blade of the Ruined King,if they are squishy, take Infinity Edge

Take Banshee's Veil or Guardian Angel as last item since you dont need boots(ult's gives movement speeds, youmuu's gives movement speed, you get bonus speed from your bonethoot necklace...)
