Mastery Tree Is Outdated
WARNING: These masteries are still using the old tree and have not been updated to the new tree by the guide author. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Excuse my spelling errors, I'm not good at English.
This is my first guide and post of any kind, was a little difficult to do, so I hope and you like. . . . Before voting negative to this guide, try it.
Renekton is one of the best fighters, and one of the most fun to play. After having played much with Renekton, and have tried many ways to build it, I think in this way easily dominate the lane and game.
Try not autolock, because maybe your team dont choose a good champions for Renekton
When Play With Renekton?
I think the only way to play with Renekton is in Solo Top
Why? because in a single lane, you can farm very well, and your Slice and Dice you can do much harass, without receiving much damage, in addition, that Cull the Meek can heal the damage taken.
At least I only play with Renekton if we have a jungle and have champions that should be on bot and mid.
Pros / Cons
- Amazing damage when use rage attack
- No use mana
- Slice and Dice can chase/escape very well
- Nice farmer (even if 2v1 lane)
- Dominus makes it very easy 1v2 , and you can kill in turrets too
- Like any good fighter, do good damage and can take some damage ( you're not a tank! )
- Attack without fury, does little damage
- If you sucks the lane, the whole game you will be useless
- You need farm for do well ( for that the solo lane)
- High Cooldowns without The Brutalizer Ionian Boots of Lucidity
Greater Quintessence of Armor
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction
Greater Mark of Attack Damage : It's a good choice, for that last hits, and a little more damage. If you don't think this help, you can change for Armor penetration.
Greater Seal of Armor : Well, not much to say, usually you face against a champion ad, so these runes will help a bit.
Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction : the only option for Renekton, with these beauties you will be have 35% cd reduction early game. Other option is: Magic Resist.
Greater Quintessence of Armor : Same as the yellow
I take 25 in Offense masteries because I try Renek with Defensive mastery, but i don't do much damage and anyway i receive good damage against that power champs like Irelia, Yorick or Darius.
With offense you got nice damage and with the runes you get the defense you need.
In defense I just get more armor
there is nothing better for Renekton. . . It gives you the speed to take down the enemy or to escape ganks. I just love
You can change this for Flash but really, I hate to Renekton or any melee fighter.
Another spell that is essential. . . Used for that life steal almost all top champ take, and that damage for kill, and kill someone on turret with low health.
Can you replace by Exhaust Teleport but i think is better Ignite. Exhaust helps more in fights, but with ignite you have more chance to win the lane.
*other spells are useless*
I always start with these and 3 Health Potion, so I can harass more, and I can escape the enemy harass ( like Garen )
one of the best items for Renekton, This gives you the early damage you need and some cd reduction
best boots for Renekton, when you have these, should already have The Brutalizer. That means like 35% cd reduction. great no?
I never see a Renekton with Trinity, but i do it. You have a lot of spells, so the passive help you much, more attack speed means more fury that is more damage, and give some good health for the Atma's Impaler and with 15% critical its good for stack with Atma's and Youmuu's. Get first Phage then Sheen.
Give you good damage and armor for get you more resistant. And of course, that good 18% critical for stack to 33%
More hp, which means more damage and a slow, will be easier to kill those squishy champions who want to escape
Finish The Brutalizer for 40% cd reduction, little more armor penetration, some %crit and a pretty cool USE: makes you attack more fast, that means more attacks, more rage = amazing damage.
I usually do this, the passive is amazing, and the health help a little with the damage.
I think it also can be used, change it for Frozen Mallet. i think mallet is best.
I think is another viable option, more tanky and a extra life. You can change it for Banshee's.
Renekton's red bar. You gain 5 fury per attack, and every 50 fury your abilities do bonus damage. In early game try to harass just with fury, do more damage, and dominate the lane.
I max this first, because in early game you can harass a little out of the range, and can farm better, has less cooldown that Ruthless Predator and you heal a little. So for me is better for win the lane.
with 50 fury do amazing damage and a great stun. you can cancel ultis like Nunu,Kat . . .
This is amazing for harass, escape or chase the enemy. In late game do a good damage, but well, we just use it for harass and escape. TRY not to use for do damage, do it just for chase and escape plz!.
With this you are much harder to kill. give you rage bonus, that means more damage from abilities, with this you can finish that half health champion in tower. Just amazing ulti.
You start with Boots of Speed and 3 Health Potion. Start just last hit minions, in level 2 you can harass better with Slice, Cull the Meek then back with dice. In level 3 you can add Ruthless Predator to the combo. Focus on farm, you need farm for get fast The Brutalizer . . . If you enemy is more agressive and do more damage, play more safe and just farm. Harass always you can, but be smart.
Focus on farm for your Trinity Force and Atma's Impaler. Help other lanes if it needs help, gank if you can. Keep the map with some wards, in fights just use you Ulti if you cant 1v1 you enemy, or you fight agains 2 or more champions, try not to do stupid things. Try to not die for just one kill. (Well this is really hard, its fun chase a low champion on turrets)
Time to some team fights. I recommend maintaining always dragon and baron warded. Try to not start fights, you no a main tank. When a fight start use ulti for start gain some fury. Then focus range carry or mage carry not anyone else. Use Ignite
on the you target. If you have Youmuu's Ghostblade active. And if someone try to escape use Ghost and kill, or you try to escape use it .
